Wisconsin Rapids homeowner chooses Kulp's of Stratford to remove and replace hail-damaged asbestos slate roof.

On June 7, 2007, a devastating hail storm struck Wisconsin Rapids in the late afternoon hours, with 4 inch and larger hailstones in some areas. Hundreds of roofs were damaged, including the roof on a home on 3rd Street South, near Riverview Hospital. The asbestos-slate shingles were damaged to the point of needing replacement, and Kulp's of Stratford rose to the occasion with their crew of asbestos-certified roofing professionals. After removing the slates and re-sheathing the roof deck, they installed high-definition Elk Domain Winslow shingles, in Stonehenge color.
