About Our Roofers
We’re First And Second Generation Roofers…
And Proud Of It.
Believe it or not, my father and I are both roofers, however, we didn’t start out that way.
It all started nearly 20 years ago when we started working together in the hail damage repair business. At that time, the midwest was experiencing frequent severe storms, which kept us extremely busy repairing those roofs.
As we continued to work on these hail and wind damaged homes and provide roof repairs, one question kept nagging at us, “why are we seeing so much damage?” Well one thing led to another, and we discovered a startling statistic: Poor quality, workmanship, and poor products were causing the majority of the damage. In fact, here is a quote from just one of the reports that we read:
“The most common roofing material for houses in many areas of the country is the asphalt shingle. Even though winds in hurricanes Bertha and Fran were well below expected design speeds, shingle damage was widespread and frequently severe, resulting in interior water damage.
Field investigations concluded that damage was caused by inadequate workmanship, standards and design.”

Dad and I weren’t happy with that. We couldn’t believe how widespread the problem was, and were beside ourselves at how many homeowners were being taken advantage of. We were determined to do something about it. However, we hit yet another roadblock. Dad was getting older, and the Midwest winters were taking their toll. For that reason, and a lot of others, we decided to relocate to Florida.
Upon our arrival in Florida we wondered if they too had the same problem with having quality roofing contractors available to the community. Unfortunately, what we found was a serious lack in roofing safety and quality. It was because of this discovery, that Dad and I launched Hippo Roofing LLC with one goal in mind: deliver the absolute best possible roofing materials at the best possible price and install them to perfection.
After a few short years, what resulted from our experiences was Hippo Roofing. Our team of roofers has become a recognized industry leader in residential metal roofing. We’ve won numerous awards, including the coveted Top Metal Roofer award, Best of Brevard, and many others.
But of course, a company is only as good as the people who stand behind it, so we want to take a moment to introduce those people that make our company GREAT.
