How it all started

Handlin Construction is a distinguished veteran-owned roofing company serving the Kansas City region for almost twenty years. Established by Chris Handlin—a former Marine, firefighter, and EMT—the company upholds the tenets of service, faith, and excellence. From a young age, Chris was drawn to remodeling and construction, a passion that ultimately shaped his career as a licensed Class A contractor in Johnson County and a certified CertainTeed Installer. This ensures that our clients benefit from top-tier roofing materials and expert installation services.

Our expertise encompasses roof installation, repair, and maintenance. Handlin Construction’s dedication to superior craftsmanship and client satisfaction is reflected in our consistent 5-star ratings across major review platforms. We pride ourselves on our sterling reputation and our commitment to surpassing client expectations.
