Our Mission

Priority Roofing isn’t satisfied being a basic roofing contractor; we strive to be the best roofing contractor and stand behind our work 100%.

Our Story

In 2004, John Rieger founded a successful large roofing company that served Houston and Dallas in his home state of Texas, as well as Kansas City, Missouri, with his business partners.

When the partnership dissolved in 2008, John established Priority Roofing and firmly rooted himself and his family in Kansas City. Seeing a need to continue serving major Texas cities, in 2010, John’s brother Scott opened a satellite location of Priority Roofing, where he also offers outbuildings and outdoor kitchens.

John and the Priority Roofing team’s dedication to Kansas City runs deep. They show their love for the city and its residents with diverse roofing solutions, quality craftsmanship, and a truly customer-centric approach.

Our Team

John Rieger

Co-owner John Rieger got his start in roofing in 2005, working for a large company. While there, he managed more than 20 salespeople and learned firsthand the importance of a roofing contractor’s reputation and client service.

That philosophy is one that John continues to take very seriously, as he oversees the day-to-day operations of Priority Roofing in Kansas City. His team knows he’s a stickler for quality and durability, which is why they treat every roof as if it’s their own.

“If we can’t do it correctly,” he says, “we won’t do a roof.”

John holds a Johnson County Contracting License and certifications from CertainTeed, Topps Coatings, and Mule Hide TPO. He also has training in Xactimate adjusting software for insurance claims. In his spare time, John enjoys hunting, fishing, and restoring antique cars.
