My wife & I founded Penney Roofing & Construction in 1995 to gain more control over our schedule & direction, something the hours my retail sales & management positions didn’t afford us. The majority of my work experience outside retail was in home building, roofing, residential remodeling, & commercial construction.
My father was a home builder & I worked for a home builder, a commercial contractor, & a remodeling contractor while attending college at the University of Nebraska at Kearney for business administration. I then transferred to Emporia State University & worked for a roofing contractor while attending there. It was in Emporia that I met my future wife. Moving to Wichita after our wedding, my early married life was spent in home building & commercial construction before a 3 year stint in retail management.
After moving to Andale to raise our family we started Penney Roofing & Construction as a roofing & siding contractor offering predominantly reroofing but quickly acquired a class “C” license & moved into all aspects of residential contracting due to customer demand. We then shortened our name to Penney Construction. After 19 years of doing a little bit of everything residential from garages & covered decks to full kitchen & bathroom renovations we acquired a custom steel building dealership to further diversify & offer our customers a lifetime building investment in a nearly unlimited range of sizes & styles. Reroofing has continued to be a staple throughout our growth & development & we have transitioned to handle high volume hail damage repair.
Even with over 25 years experience we constantly strive to improve our methods & keep current on new products & trends. Placing a high value on attention to detail ensures a high quality finished product. In 2014 we acquired a class “B” license to offer services to commercial customers. If we’re not confident we can do it as well or better than 99 percent of the companies out there doing any of the services we offer, we don’t offer it. We believe in hiring skill & expertise & that’s what we offer in our business. We do work for others the way we’d want it done for ourselves. Our motto for how sturdy & well to build something has always been, “better too much than not enough.” A motto that has served us & our customers well. Local codes give the minimum allowable materials acceptable to use to complete a construction project. We rarely settle for those standards choosing instead to do it better or “beef it up.” This is Kansas after all & we all know the weather extremes that structures in our state are exposed to. We work like it’s up to us but pray like it’s up to God.
We’re a family business & we’ve employed each of our four children during the summers & Saturdays during the school year. We’ve also employed our brothers, uncles, cousins, nephews, & fathers over the years. We’ve been blessed to have an abundance of quality labor available. We’ve endured the ups & downs of a competitive market by keeping our focus on customer service & satisfaction while offering a wide diversity of products & by nurturing a continually developing repeat customer base that grows exponentially with the referrals of our loyal customers. Thank you in advance for placing your trust in us & thank you to all who have done so over the years & allowed us to do what we do to repair & improve your homes & businesses.
We’re extremely grateful for your patronage & pray that we never take it for granted.
