A strong and vibrant community is vital to a successful and growing business.
Some of the great programs we have developed are...
Roofs for Troops
Roofs for Troops is a program that we have created with the help of GAF to give a free roof away to a Veteran service member or public safety individual who needs a new roof.
In the last 4 years we have been Honored to meet some amazing individuals who have fought for our country and our community. Mr. Jerry Blackwood, Mr. Jack Marsden, Mr. Tom Duncan, Mr. Curtis Gowen, Mrs. Joanne Harris & Mrs. Beth Burton. These great patriots have done so much for our county and community that giving them a Free roof seems so small. Each one of them were so thankful for the gift. They all truly believe that someone else had a greater need then themselves.
Each time we put together our Roofs for Troops event we are so overwhelmed with other business who reach out and want to help. The other unbelievable companies make it possible to give each Roof for Troops recipient to receive not only a free roof but a complete home facelift!! From HVAC, Plumbing, Landscaping, Painting, Fencing, new sheetrock and ramps… whatever the need out community comes through. We are so thankful for the men and women who put their lives on the line each day both overseas and here in our community that we so enjoy this program and what it means in their lives.
The events that take places throughout this program are so fun and full of community involvement.
The recipient each year is someone that is nominate through one of the veteran groups we partner with or a community member. Ones the nomination come in we do research on the home and the Veteran. We do this to ensure that the home in condition to can be repaired and reroofed. We then reach out to their friends and family to share the secrete that they have been chosen as our annual/biannual roof for troops recipient. Then the fun starts with a surprise visit with community members, Veterans Groups, Media and supporting groups like the MBACC. After the shock wears off we meet with Veteran and learn all about their time spent in the military, community involvement and thought this we uncover any additional issues with their homes.
Then the community outreach really starts as we reach out to our amazing business partners in out for some help. Great companies like Carolina Cool, Patriot Painting & Landscaping, USA Plumbing, local restaurants and the Vet Center. They then extend their hand out with the added service that they would like to donate to our Veteran. It is truly heartwarming to see so many businesses coming together to help on Veteran who has fought for our country.
The next event that takes place is Install Party!!! The day we plan our roof installation is a big party to celebrate this great individual. As the tear off and installation happens in the background we set up on the lawn with tents and tables. Either food is catered in or cooked out for a community panic. Neighbors, Friends, Community partners and Media turn out to share in the day. Throughout the day the individual businesses that have offered additional service stop by and surprise the Veteran with their generosity. After a full day of being showered with love and much needed up keep and scheduling of work for their home we clean up and let the Veteran soak it all in. We usually get a call the next day from the Veteran saying how emotionally drained they are after realizing how incredible blessed they are to live in a community of individuals and business that care so much about each other.
This truly is one of the best parts of our job. To be able to take care of a home and provide a service that will protect your more important possessions; your family is what it is all about. The added community involvement is such a huge bonus.
We like to continue the support of the Veterans all year round and try to spread it out as much as possible. We partner with groups such as The Vet Center, Military Officers of Association America(MOAA), The American Legion & Blue Star Mothers.

–Blue Star Mothers: These ladies need support more then most. They do what ever they can to insure their children and the children of others who are fighting for our country have the necessities and a few comforts from home.
