Specialty Roofers Inc. wants to extend our sincere appreciation for the first responders to keep our beautiful community safe! During the month of June over 100 first responders and healthcare heroes told us their stories and entered the contest. With so many touching stories we couldn't draw just one. Three names were drawn on the Get the Coast show on July 15th, National Give Something Away Day, and now it is up to the community to vote! One lucky winner will receive a free GAF Timberline HDZ roof system in the color of their choice.
