About Us

Feel good about your home. 

Simply put, this is our company’s main objective.  Haven Exteriors strives to make every customer smile each and every time they drive up to their home.  Whether it means helping give your home an exterior makeover or simply replacing your roof, we want to help you feel good about your home.

How do we do this?

  • We put our focus on the individual homeowner and listen to their thoughts and ideas regarding their home project.
  • We relate our products and services to customers and their needs.
  • We offer face-to-face meetings with each and every customer to review details of proposed work.
  • We provide clear and concise proposals to let each homeowner know exactly what work will be completed.

The owner of Haven Exteriors has worked on both sides of the contracting business, serving as a consultant to homeowners and as a project manager on big commercial projects. 

A few of these projects include:

  • SLU’s Southeastern Oaks -- complete replacement of roofing and gutters of all buildings.
  • Fontainebleau State Park -- replacement of roofs, camps, and buildings throughout the park.
  • Allied Express -- commercial roof replacement.


Haven Exteriors was founded by Rodney Kelley, who was raised in the Northshore area of south Louisiana.  He is graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University and has strong family ties to the Northshore area.  Following Hurricane Gustav, Mr. Kelley started working in the construction industry for a top nationally-known construction company specializing in disaster/restoration work.  After working for four years on the road helping homeowners affected by disasters such as hail and wind storms, Mr. Kelley decided it was time to move back home to the Northshore. 

During his time dealing with the aftereffects of hail and wind storms, Mr. Kelley worked tirelessly to learn the ins and outs of the construction and insurance claim industry.  Also, he learned how to properly identify storm damage and attained a HAAG Engineering Certified Roof Inspector certification.  This certification is only acquired by those individuals seeking to become the industry’s best.  HAAG certified inspectors are well respected by insurance companies and their adjusters. 

Upon returning home to Louisiana, Mr. Kelley was hired by one of the largest roofing companies in Louisiana to sell roofing jobs and train several employees.  He was able to utilize the skills he acquired working storms when several hail storms hit in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. 


While working hail storms in Louisiana, Rodney Kelley identified how he could become more helpful to homeowners. Many homeowners wanted someone to complete all their work after a hail storm. This work mainly consisted of replacing their hail-damaged roofing, siding, and gutters.  There were a lot of roofing companies for homeowners to choose from; however, not many companies were willing to take on any work other than repairing or replacing a roof.  Although he knew it took more time and effort to complete other trades, it presented an opportunity for Mr. Kelley to provide an invaluable service to homeowners.   After turning down many clients who were looking for a company to do all their work—roofing, siding, and gutters, which he had experience in helping homeowners complete—Mr. Kelley decided it was time to offer his help and services to complete their entire home exterior or home improvement project.


Haven Exteriors is a premier roofing and exterior home improvement contractor in the Northshore area.  Rodney Kelley founded Haven Exteriors to offer homeowners more than just a roof, in spite of the fact that he is considered by his peers to be one of the best roofing consultants in dealing with insurance claims.  While Mr. Kelley has been called upon as an expert witness in several court cases involving roofing-related insurance claims, he also has worked on many projects that required the entire exterior of homes be replaced.  These homeowners found great value in a company like Haven Exteriors.  They didn’t need to hire four or five different contractors and coordinate details and timing of all their home repairs—especially when they wanted only one company to do all their work in the first place.   Haven Exteriors was also a company that helped them navigate the insurance claim process from beginning to end in order to make it less stressful and time consuming for the homeowner.  Haven Exteriors is committed and passionate about making clients’ homes look better than they did even before a hail/wind storm damaged them. 


A haven is a safe place to find when you are in trouble, symbolizing a harbor in stormy waters or a breath of fresh air.  Haven Exteriors strives to be your safe place to turn to for your contracting needs.  We want to be your calm harbor and your breath of fresh air in the often scary world of choosing a contractor.  Confused and troubled by not knowing which contractor to use at your home?  Then you need Haven Exteriors!


Many times after a disaster such as a hail or wind storm has hit, homeowners are looking for a company to repair damage to their home.  Haven Exteriors will be that safe, reliable contractor you find to help you get your home back to its pre-storm condition.   We were doing work in your area before the storm, and we will be around for many years after we complete your project.  Remember, when storms come your way, choose the safety and professionalism of Haven Exteriors!  We look forward to working with you!
