Midwest Commercial Roofing Company Named after Town in Kansas

When you start a business, one of the first things people ask you is, "How did you come up with the name?" We get asked that a lot, especially now, where the name doesn't correspond to anything people can put their finger on immediately.

Washington Roofing & Insulation, part of Washington Companies, Inc., is not named after the state, nor a famous person like George or Denzel, and it doesn't represent our political affiliations in any way.

It was named because Chuck Carpenter, owner, started the company 35 years ago in the small town of Washington, Kansas. Located in north-central Kansas off of Hwy 56, Washington is 20 minutes south of the Nebraska line and 50 miles north of Manhattan. It is home to around 1100 people.

Now our main office is located in Great Bend, Kansas with offices in Claremore, Oklahoma and Kansas City. We provide commercial roofing solutions with SPF foam roofing, elastomeric roof coatings and total building insulation with air barrier systems and products. We service the entire midwest, from Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, and have installed millions of square feet of roofing.

So people do squint their eyes at us and ponder how we got our name, and it makes us smile. In the end it never matters, because no matter which political party you belong to, the bottom line is that when we're finished, your roof won't leak.

    Stone lintels have been used to support roofs since prehistoric times, but cannot bridge large distances. The stone arch came into extensive use in the ancient Roman period and in variant forms could be used to span spaces up to 140 feet (43 m) across. The stone arch or vault, with or without ribs, dominated the roof structures of major architectural works for about 2,000 years, only giving way to iron beams with the Industrial Revolution and the designing of such buildings as Paxton's Crystal Palace, completed 1851.

  3. Now, does this town feel very special that they get to represent a roofing company? I'd feel honored if the same thing happened to my little town in Calgary. That would be pretty special.

  4. Hiring a roofing contractor and a quality builder for your home roofing is essential and plays an important part. A quality builder can choose metal roofing styles that will perfectly suit to the building where they will be installed.So i think its really good to hire a quality contractor to give it a great finish.
