FLOW Roofing, a roofing company, and True Metal Supply, a metal roofing manufacturer, surprised a local family with a new metal roof. A few weeks prior, Phil Fries, Owner of FLOW Roofing, received a call from Cheryl Hatfield with Realty Executives regarding a homeowner who was experiencing roof leakage. Upon further inspection from numerous roofing companies, the only solution was a full roof replacement. A new roof was an unexpected, large expense for the homeowner, Tracie Gamble, who had recently purchasing the home in 2022.
Fries, having done a roof giveaway in the past, was excited about the opportunity to help another local community member. He immediately reached out to Mason Burchette and Adam Clark, Co-Owners of True Metal Supply to explore a partnership on the giveaway. Burchette and Clark happily teamed up with Fries, and the two companies got to work planning the, "We've Got You Covered," event.
On Friday, April 23, Burchette and Fries headed to the homeowner's house to meet the family, announce the good news, and inspect the property for work ahead. Succeeding evaluation, the team decided to also tear down the existing, dangerous carport and build a new one. Additionally, after visiting with Gamble and her son, Fancis ("Frankie") Gamble, the business owners were motivated to add landscaping details and remove the existing, unstable fence. Burchette and Fries were elated as the Gamble family happily began choosing their new, barn red metal roof from True Metal Supply's color chart.
On Saturday, April 24, FLOW Roofing and True Metal Supply were joined by local realtors and other volunteers to assist with building the carport, removing weeds, spreading mulch and planting flowers, as well as adding bushes and trees. Tracie Gamble got involved in the fun, as well, and even took the first swing in knocking down the existing fence.
After a weekend of emotions, hard work and community support, FLOW Roofing and True Metal Supply were reminded why they started their businesses, as they put a new, barn red, Tuff-Rib metal roof on a worthy, local community family's home.
