Home Show winner see’s her home with Metal Roofing, wins iPad from Gulf Coast Supply & Mfg.

2014 Metal Roof iPad Winner Vickie Brannen

A BIG Congratulations goes out to Mrs. Vickie Brannen of Gainesville, winner of this year’s iPad mini Giveaway from Gulf Coast Supply at the North Central Florida Home & Garden Show.  Mrs. Brannen and a host of others stopped by last weekend’s event at the O’Connell Center, helping to make this year’s Home Expo another great success.

This year’s event was especially exciting for our staff, as we were live at the show with our Metal Roof Visualizer service, ProofMyRoof™.  ProofMyRoof™ is our FREE offering that allows homeowners to see their home with Gulf Coast Metal Roofing when they upload a photo of their project to http://www.ProofMyRoof.com.  Within minutes are crew goes to work, transforming their home photo into an interactive Metal Roofing visualizer.  Once complete, we email the homeowner a link to their online dashboard to view the final product.

Winning Metal Roof Photo Submission from Vickie BrannenGenerally, the homeowner will not see the actual photo transformation process as we convert their shingle or clay tile roof to metal, but this past weekend at the Home Show, visitors to our booth got an all access behind the scenes tour!  “It was so much fun to share the experience with the homeowner, and see their reactions as they virtually watched their metal roof be installed”, laughed David Doherty, CAD Technician for Gulf Coast.

Alachua store manager, Russell Bowen commented on the overall response to ProofMyRoof™ at the show saying, “This service has always been a huge hit for us, but there was something special about teaming up with the consumer and allowing them to see their project transformation up close and personal.”  All of the ProofMyRoof™ participants were entered for their chance to win the iPad Mini.

iPad giveaway winner, Vickie Brannen had this to say, “Seeing my house with all of the Metal Roof profile and color options really opened up so many possibilities that I hadn’t even considered, and I was amazed how the final photo looked… so realistic!”  Overall, we had a blast at the show and are so grateful to have had so many of our friends stop by and say hello – we look forward to many more successful future events with the folks from North Central Florida.

3 reasons to fall in love with Metal Roofing

In the spirit of Valentines Day this year, we thought we’d share the top 3 reasons we have fallen in love with Metal Roofing.

Metal Roofing Blog about the all the benefits you will love about Metal Roofing

Our relationship with Metal Roofing was first sparked by the fact that we knew we had a product that wasn’t a fly by night… while other roofing materials were only interested in a short term relationship, Metal always promised to be there till the end!  When Metal Roofing said, “I Do”, it meant it!  So the number one reason we have fallen in love with Metal Roofing is because it is without a doubt the best lifetime solution for all of our roofing needs!

It has been said that the character of someone truly comes out, not when the sun is shining, but rather when the storms of life blow in.  It has meant so much to us to us to have a relationship with a material that will stay on the roof no matter what the unruly elements of life may throw our way.  Other roofing materials may bail in a time of trouble, but Metal won’t budge!  So the second reason we have fallen in love with Metal Roofing is because of how strong it is and how safe that makes us feel!

Some folks have an uncanny ability to save their loved ones money, while others are known to just cost their loved ones money.  One thing that we can say about Metal Roofing is that it has definitely been a means for us to save money.  Outside of the obvious savings that come with its impressive long life, Metal Roofing has also helped us save BIG on our energy bills because of its amazing solar reflectivity.  This brings us to our third reason for falling in love with Metal Roofing and that is its uncanny ability to save us money year after year!

Most of the time we hear that “love is in the air”, but now we want to invite you to find the love that can be “on your roof”. Call or chat with us today today to learn more about the amazing benefits of the long-lasting, safe, strong and energy efficient solutions found in Metal Roofing!

Happy Valentines Day from Gulf Coast Supply!
