Meet Mike Cowan, owner of Champion Roofing and the recent winner of the DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor 2023 Project of the Year Award.

Stuck in a traffic jam on the Gaillardia Parkway in Oklahoma City? No problem. You can take in the view of the Gaillardia Parkway Office Park off on the side of the road. 

Recently re-roofed by Champion Roofing, you’ll quickly see why the multi-building complex was named a DaVinci Roofscapes Masterpiece Contractor 2023 Project of the Year Award Winner. Mansard roofing serves as the perfect canvas to showcase the beautiful DaVinci Single-Width Slate tile in Smokey Gray installed by the roofing team, making it an eye-catching part of the parkway.

Overview: 2023 Project of the Year

According to David D. Le Norman, owner of Le Norman Properties LLC, the real slate roofing on some of the office buildings had failed after just 15 years. That led them to make a roofing change. And the property owner always trusts Champion Roofing LLC.

“This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time, we have used Champion Roofing,” says David. “We call them first. They have earned the right to be called first.”

So, when Mike Cowan, owner of Champion Roofing, encouraged the property owner to invest in DaVinci Slate for the office complex, David listened. “We chose the composite DaVinci product for its slate-like appearance and durability,” says David. “We chose Champion Roofing because of their first-class service and successful history installing this type of roofing system.

“Champion Roofing does an absolute fantastic job of communicating. They efficiently went through the process step-by-step. They did exactly what they said they were going to do. And it looks beautiful.”

Insights from a winning roofer

Based in Oklahoma City, Champion Roofing works on both commercial and residential roofing projects. Here Mike shares some insights about his career, his appreciation of authentic-looking composite roofing tiles and his devotion to the roofing industry.  

Q: How did you get started in the roofing business?

Like many roofers, I began my career as a summer job to help pay for college.

Q: What makes your company recommend DaVinci products over competitive composite products

Hands down, the authentic look of the DaVinci composite product.

Q: How have DaVinci products helped increase sales for your company?

The DaVinci product line gives us a high-end composite option that our customers gravitate to in our marketplace.

Q: When selling DaVinci products to a new customer, what are the features and benefits that customers react best to?

Again, it’s the appearance. It’s so realistic. The look is very authentic to real shake and cedar.

Q: What made you think that this particular project would be a winning candidate for the DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor Project of the Year Award?

When driving by on the road, the Gaillardia Parkway Office Park truly stands out. The architecture of the buildings and the authentic look of the DaVinci tile is a great combination. It just felt like a winning project to us.

Q: What’s your dream roofing job?

I’m pretty old fashioned. Putting on a quality roof for any customer equates to a dream roofing job for me.

Q: Finally, if you absolutely had to change professions tomorrow, what do you think you’d do?

Actually, I’d find a way back to the roofing industry! There’s simply no way I can imagine leaving this industry … it’s what I enjoy most and I wouldn’t leave it.
