Dave is dedicated to making sure our customers’ expectations are not only met, but exceeded. And that they are given the best possible workmanship: from buying the best materials to hiring professional craftsman who care about a job well done.

Dave Laizure is the co-owner of Whirlwind Roofing & Construction in Bixby, Oklahoma.

The company specializes in residential roofing and construction, storm restoration, and custom copper accents.

He has received the exclusive FORTIFIED Wise™ Roofer certification by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), is a member of ORCA, the Oklahoma Roofing Contractors Association, and National Women in Roofing (NWiR).

He enjoys mentoring high school students to consider the trades as a profession through the Build My Future construction career events in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, OK each year.

Dave started in the roofing industry at the age of 7 sweeping floors in his grandfather’s lumber yard and later roofing houses when he was 14 for his father’s construction company in Kansas. Now, he takes pride working with his wife, Debra, daughter, Brooke Laizure, and son, Adam Laizure, in their business.

He says, “Having a family roofing business allows us to provide a personal touch and keep our customers’ satisfaction sky high. I’m so proud of my kids and love coming to work with them every day.”
