Kent Construction Company was founded in 1980 as a general construction business by Ronnie Kent. Soon afterwards the company began specializing in roof construction. Our first endeavors were in low slope applications; Built-up (BUR), Modified and Single-Ply Roofs. In 1987 Kent Construction saw a trend moving towards metal roofing and purchased our first roll forming machine - a Knudson KR 24 roll forming machine. With the addition of this equipment Kent Construction became the first company in the southeast to have the ability to factory form "Standing Seam Roof Panels" at the jobsite. This process benchmarked the industry. Standing Seam roof systems provide architectural appeal, structural integrity, and warranties that reflect the longevity of the system. Through the 1990's as the demand grew so did our company. We currently own 5 roll forming machines that fabricate roof, wall, soffit panels and continuous gutter. Kent Construction has the ability through our full service sheet metal shop, hydraulic shears, de-coilers, and computerized press brake, to custom fabricate unique trims and flashings. Utilized in a retrofit framed application 4” and 6” metal studs are rolled and cut to length with our stud roll former.
Currently we are widely recognized as a leader in the southeast for jobsite fabricated metal roof systems.
Kent Construction also has continued to grow the company by expanding our capabilities in Single-Ply Roof Membrane Systems. Through our partnership with the Seaman Corporation and Fibertite Membrane Roof Systems we are also a leader in North Florida, South Georgia and Alabama for Single-Ply Roof Systems.
In 2005, after Brian Kent purchased and reorganized the Company we changed our name to Kent Construction and Roofing, Inc. to better describe our company's specialized area of expertise. With this reorganization we defined our core principles and goals and established our “mission statement”.

We are able to achieve our goals by fostering relationships with material suppliers, maintaining our exclusive relationship with BTK Engineering Services and a continuous improvement process for quality construction.
Our slogan is “bringing the tri-states together under one roof”.
