Our Story

Kevin Griffin, a Fairfield Harbour resident, owns and operates Storm Guard Roofing and Construction in New Bern. He started his career with a BS and MS degree in Wood Science and Technology from NC State University in 1990. Over the next 26 years, he has had the opportunity to hold numerous positions in the Building Products industry that included product and application technology, sales, business management, marketing, and new business development. In June 2016, Kevin left the industry to help expand Storm Guard’s presence into Eastern North Carolina. “This has been a very special and rewarding experience for my wife, Larna, and I as we are both originally from this part of the state. So, for us it’s coming back home.” Kevin and Larna have two amazing kids (twins) Forrest and Katie, that both just graduated from ECU in May of 2020. As a family, they enjoy activities that New Bern (and Fairfield Harbour) have to offer, including boating, fishing, hunting, and even playing a little golf. Kevin is also a board member for Cooperative Business Council of Fairfield Harbour and a member of the Yacht and Fishing Club.

Storm Guard has been in business since 2003 and has earned an A+++ Better Business Bureau rating.  Storm Guard of New Bern is locally owned, fully licensed, and an insured contractor specializing in residential and commercial roofing and exterior construction. While roofing is their specialty, they can also assist with your windows, siding and gutters. Additionally, Storm Guard’s team is especially trained in evaluating roofs and when warranted, can assist you with the insurance claims process to get your property fully restored. “Our commitment is to provide honest and, fair proposals that offer value with service we can stand behind.” To further ensure your satisfaction, we offer Storm Guard’s industry leading 5-year workmanship warranty on every project.

With COVID-19 as a consideration and hurricane season coming, the old adage “Your Home is Your Castle” has never rung more true. Your home provides your family with physical security and needs to be structurally sound. To best prepare you and your home for storms and dangerous weather, consider assessing the exterior of your home before they happen. Your home’s roof and exterior is your first line of defense between your family and the elements. It is important to put in the time to make sure you are prepared before disaster strikes and know who to go to when it does.

Whether you need to replace your roof due to age or storm damage, or want to update the look of your home with new siding or windows, Storm Guard has you covered. Request a complimentary inspection today.
