Hi my name is John Kranert

John Kranert has taken over our Operations DepartmentMy name is John Kranert, and I am the Operations Manager for Sonrise Roofing. I have worked for this incredible company for about 3 1/2 years, and my duties include everything from A–Z, beginning to end, from job start to job completed, and everything in between. I have over 27 years of roofing and construction experience under my belt, and to this day I am still amazed at how much each job offers it own personalized experience.

Growing up, my stepfather was a roofer and I first started climbing up a ladder with bundles of shingles when I was about 15 years old. I eventually learned how to run the hot kettle and set rolls of roofing material, install a shingle roof, set concrete tile, and of course all the labor intensive jobs in between.


I never intended to be a full-time roofer, but over the years I learned a lot, and I eventually worked for major roofing companies in cities like Miami, Los Angeles, and now here in the Bay Area.

Most people think replacing a roof is a very difficult and complicated process, and would never attempt to do it themselves. But I assure you; the easy part of roofing is tearing it off and putting it back on. The complicated part is all the paperwork, customer relations, bookkeeping, along with all the footwork and quality control involved. It can sometimes be a very intense and demanding job, but I do not take it for granted. I enjoy what I do and thank God for every blessing that I have.

Kevin Farrer is by far the best boss I have ever worked for. He is a man of integrity and takes deep pride in everything he sets his hands to do. He has an impeccable reputation and his work shines with superior workmanship and durability. With a firm handshake and an honest face-to-face approach, you can be confident that he will give your roof the personal attention it deserves.

Our goal here at Sonrise Roofing is to make sure your project is a hassle-free, seamless experience from start to finish. Please do not hesitate to contact your Sales Rep, myself, or Kevin if you have any questions, concerns, or comments on how we can make your project exactly the way you want it to be.
