The Company Story


 
The owner, Steve Bovinett and his family enjoy the time and energy they invest in their local and global community. Steve believes that we all exist here on earth to help others, by sharing our time, talents, and treasures. He formed Accredited Roofing presents KangaRoof to reflect this belief. Steve coaches his sons’ local baseball team – the Saint Louis Redbirds. The organization uses a 3-dimensioinal approach to coaching, which is faith-based and focuses on life skills as well as baseball skills. It gives the kids a place to call home, someone to believe in them and a belief system by which they can live their lives. On behalf of his church – Grace Church in Fairview Heights – Steve and his daughter served several times at an orphanage in Haiti. During the service, they would work throughout the day – doing things such as painting the orphanage buildings – and spending quality time with the orphans singing praises in the evenings.

One specific experience in Haiti stands out to Steve: At the orphanage, he and his daughter drew & colored pictures that they would then give to the orphans. For hours, the orphans would stand in line and wait for these pictures as if they were priceless works of art. That experience brought about about a realization of how blessed we are in this country. Steve also volunteers at a local soup kitchen called Jesus Place in Granite City and recently helped a friend from college launch a Church in Granite City named Restoration Church. He has been certified with the following manufacturers:

  • Certified Shingle Recycler with Hansen RAS
  • Select ShingleMaster with CertainTeed
  • Elite Contractor with GAF
  • Certified Contractor with Owens-Corning
