Oklahoma is what you might call a violent weather area. Hail, sleet, ice, snow, rain and let us not forget wind. These are all factors that directly affect your home and especially the roof.

I sat down with Claremore’s own Tim Nichol, owner-operator of Capital Roofing, and he told me all there is to know about maintaining a healthy roof.

Tim said, “If your home hasn’t had a new roof in 20 years, it is time.”

He explained that even though most shingles are rated for 30 years, Oklahoma weather drops that to between 20-25. Most of us don’t really think much about our roof until it becomes a problem. Tim says don’t let it get to that point; call Capital Roofing for a free estimate and avoid potential problems.

Capital Roofing has been in business since 2011. Previously working as a roofing salesman, Tim knew he could go a step further and assist customers from start to finish. They say sometimes it is best to just do it yourself and that is what Tim did. He worked with and is certified as an Owens Corning (Pink Panther) brand roofer.

Tim said, “After getting fully certified, I built up a crew and we started small. I wanted to make sure my guys knew I was picky and our quality of work was top notch.”

He took the money from his first job and began advertising almost exclusively in Claremore.

“Claremore is where I do 90% of my business. I am from here and love the people. We do everything from insurance work and small repairs to full residential and commercial roofs. Word of mouth is huge for us. We want to make sure those words are positive and people are happy.”

Don’t worry if you are not located in Claremore city limits, Capital Roofing works anywhere within a 60 mile radius of downtown.

If you are buying, selling, remodeling, building, have damage or just want to update your roof, Capital Roofing is locally owned and operated and ready to help. Estimates are free and quick, averaging about 10-15 minutes of measurement time and additional 10-15 for a quick quote.

They also work quick! Tim says that for a 2,000 square foot home with 3,800 square feet of roof, it can be done in just one day!

If you want to have extra protection on your roof and save more money in the longterm, they offer special Class 4 shingles. Class 4 shingles are hail resistant and can drop your homeowner’s insurance premiums by 10%-20%.

Capital Roofing also works directly with local vendors and custom builders to create the perfect roofline. Unique decorations from cupolas to finials and metal valley flashing.

Tim and his company are also active in the community helping sponsor golf tournaments, school activities and donating services. If you would like to see some of their work in person, visit Heritage Hills Golf Course (Clubhouse), Rice Funeral Home, Century 21 or the apartments at Talbert Village.

“The goal is to serve Claremore and the surrounding areas and make a good name for ourselves. Sure, we want our product and work to speak for itself, but we also want the town to know we are here to support them and their hard work.”
