Hail Season is Here

Spring and Summer brings the clear skies and sunshine, but it can also brings a darker side of the season.  We have all been outside on a beautiful warm day when you begin to here the low rumble of thunder off in the distance. Thunderstorms with hail can damage one of our most important investments, our homes or businesses.  When it comes to selecting a roofing contractor in the aftermath of a storm "Caution" is the key word.  Many fly by night un-reputable roofing contractors could be knocking on your door after a hail storm. When people do come knocking here is a checklist you should have to tell the difference between a un-reputable storm chaser and a good catastrophe specialist.

 In 2005 Midwest Roofing Services, your Wichita roofing company, relocated its office to 2209 West Harry. Recently, our home office has been transformed into a more comfortable new atmosphere for our clients and employees by a local artist Linnette Lee of Fresh Paint.  Fresh Paint came into the office to help give us ideas on how we can make our home office more comfortable and stylish for our clients and our employees. Since Midwest Roofing Services is a family business we wanted our clients to feel like part of our family when you come into visit. Fresh Paint provided us with several sample boards of different faux finishing techniques to help us make our decision. In the end our front entry was transformed and given a warm glaze finish with a burnt orange accent wall of  a luster texture to compliment our our sign for Midwest Roofing Services in the entry.  We then re situated our front desk for our always smiling receptionist Nicole Zahner to sit and welcome our clients as they come in. Two leather chairs  were then added for our  clients to help them feel more comfortable and at home while visiting with us.  We would like to give a Special Thanks to the excellent service Linnette Lee of Fresh Paint offered us in helping us create this new at home feeling for our business.  If you are interested in a faux finishes or murals, we recommend you check out Fresh Paints  great website at www.freshpaintartist.com and see what all her business has to offer you.
