Franciscus Roofing Florida has been installing roofs in Southwest Florida since 2004 and is the sister company of Franciscus Inc. in northern Ohio who has been in business since 1992 and replaces over 700 roofs per year.
Our decision to conduct business in Florida was based on damage from hurricane Charley along the south west coast and the need for additional roofing labor to assist the residents of Southwest Florida. Not being a storm chaser by trade, when we are arrived in Florida in 2004 we noticed that amid the chaos of hurricane work, there were hundreds of new construction roofs in need of shingle installation since all the local roofers abandoned them to go chase the storm work. In addition to assisting the residents who were suffering from wind damage to their homes, we quickly became one of the top new construction roofing contractors in the area as well, doing work for DR Horton, David Weekly Homes, and Holiday builders, among others.
Unfortunately, in 2009 when the housing boom took a turn for the worse, we had to make the difficult decision to reduce our Florida operations significantly.
Fast forward to the fall of 2017 when hurricane Irma was beginning to bear down on the south west coast.
Although we hadn’t planned on increasing our presence in Southwest Florida again, we began getting phone calls from our customers in Ohio who either had homes in Florida or who had family and friends who were in dire need of assistance due to the depleted workforce in Florida.
We sat down in our conference room in Ohio and made the decision to once again send several crews from Ohio down to assist our customers and their families and friends.
The results have been very good for all parties involved. Now that we have become very well versed with insurance claims, we’ve been able to help hundreds of people navigate through the claims and roofing process and are looking forward to continue do so for many years to come.
Our business model is quite simple. We are looking to replace 80 to 100 roofs per year in Southwest Florida, primarily tile roofs with a few asphalt shingle roofs mixed in. This lower volume gives homeowners peace of mind that they do not just become a number in a huge corporate roofing environment. It also allows us to choose what projects we would like to take on since we are limiting our overall volume of work.
We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, are a licensed roofing contractor in the state of Florida, fully insured and a platinum contractor with Owens Corning.
We certainly hope and would appreciate if you would give us the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss your project, earn your business and most importantly, see if we are a good fit to work together!
Thank you in advance for considering Franciscus Roofing of Florida to manage this very important project for you!
