No Roof Left Behind is a nationwide program that gives community members a way to help neighbors that have fallen on hard times. The No Roof Left Behind program provides a local contractor the framework to provide a new roof at no cost to a deserving homeowner in need.

In many planned communities like Battlecreek Commons, homeowner associations or property management firms make decisions that impact the shared property in the community. Condominiums, apartment buildings and attached townhomes for instance, often share roofs, walls, walkways, or other amenities. Decisions on these shared resources often impact more than one homeowner, so making a reliable choice in materials is especially important.
“Nature – the ocean, rivers, beaches and trails – is our backyard,” said Jeremy Strober, manager of Kiwanda Hospitality and The Headlands Coastal Lodge and Spa. Opening in December of this year, the lodge is in Pacific City, directly on Oregon’s North Coast, ”where forested cliffs and towering sand dunes meet the dramatic Pacific coastline,” he added. To roof this new coastal property and stand up to the often harsh, seaside climate, local contractor O’Brien Construction, recommended Malarkey’s Legacy® laminated architectural shingles.

The result of a thorough, visual inspection of the property determined the roof was in fact, in dire need of replacing. The estimator went on to recommend the homeowner install Vista™ shingles from Malarkey, citing the product’s reputation for strength in harsh weather.

Nearly a century ago, this dramatic barn was built in Treasure Valley of Southwestern Idaho near the town of Emmett in 1918. Today, it is used most often as a wedding venue, creating a scenic backdrop for the special ceremony, housing raucous receptions and even a bit of practical storage in between events.
