Stonewater Awards Scholarships To 4 East Texas Students

Stonewater Roofing awarded $1,000 college scholarships to four lucky East Texas students this month, as former high schoolers start looking ahead to the future. Teens were encouraged to submit a video explaining their hopeful career path, their inspiration for choosing that path, and what the scholarship would mean to them.

“It’s impressive what kids can do these days,” explained Stonewater Roofing CFO Chris Morris. “Everybody had a great story, so it definitely made it tough for us to choose.” In fact, it was so hard to narrow down the field that the company reached out to its partners for help.

The initial plan was to only offer two scholarships, one for the Tyler area and one for the Longview area. However, after watching videos from so many amazing kids, Morris said, “It was clear that two wasn’t going to be enough.” Stonewater Roofing asked the folks at GAF, Infinity Marketing and M. Roberts Digital to pitch in extra cash and help provide scholarships for twice as many of the entrants.

The two winners from Tyler were Jayla Gipson and Christopher Whitmore, while the winners from Longview were Braden Nickel and Lanie Pritchett.

Gipson graduated from Tyler High School and will be attending the University of Texas at Arlington in the fall. She plans to study business and commercial real estate, with the goal of one day being her own boss. However, she is mostly focused on giving back to the community like her grandmother who died from COVID-19 in January. “She was always so hard-working, and she always pushed me to be hard-working as well,” Gipson said.

Some people may already know Whitmore’s name. The former Tyler Legacy High School student was featured in the news for an internship he had at Hood Packaging, where he designed a drainage filtration system. He will be studying civil engineering in the fall at Texas A&M, with hopes of becoming a construction project manager. “It all started out with LEGOs,” he said.

Nickel graduated from Longview High School and is heading out of state to study computer science at Louisiana Tech University in the fall. “I believe that computer science is the future of humanity, and that’s something that I want to be a part of,” he stated in his video. “The only limitation is your imagination.”

Meanwhile, musical theatre has always been Pritchett’s passion, just like her mother before her. She started acting at a young age and never looked back, even winning a Best Actress award at a district competition. “I truly believe,” Pritchett added, “with all of my heart, that music and the arts can change the world and have an impact on other people’s lives.” The Gilmer High School grad will continue to study theatre at East Texas Baptist University in the fall.

“Watching all these videos, people have goals, and compassion, and they’re ready to go to the next level,” said Brennan Eberhart, direct sales supervisor for Stonewater Roofing. “They have a bright idea for the future.”

Great Time To Start A Career At Stonewater Roofing

Unhappy With Your Career? You Don’t Have To Be

More than 60 percent of Americans are searching for a new employer, according to a 2020 study conducted by human resources firm Ceridian. That’s a staggering number — but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Stonewater Roofing is the perfect landing spot for self-disciplined, motivated individuals who are seeking a new career path.

The family owned and operated roofing company was founded in 2010 — in the spare bedroom of a humble Tyler home — and has since grown exponentially. We now stretch from the DFW area to Shreveport, Louisiana. Stonewater Roofing was also the first East Texas company to receive the GAF Master Elite Triple Excellence Award.

But your job search shouldn’t be based on market growth or awards.

What Does Stonewater Mean To You?

We asked our employees that question, and the responses were powerful.

“Stonewater means everything to me,” explained direct sales manager Jordan Cagle. “It’s helped me grow and know more about people, our community, questions and concerns.”

“But the most important thing, to me, that Stonewater represents is our culture, our diversity within our culture, and how that everyone comes from different backgrounds,” Cagle continued. “We come, unite for a common goal — which is genuine caring for each and every client we have.”

That caring attitude, Cagle stated, extends down from the rooftops and into the communities that we call home. “Just making our footprint in our community known,” he said. “What we represent is so much more than construction.”

Senior sales representative Anayo Onyi added, “Stonewater means, to me, that you can start out in a not-so-favorable position, with not all the opportunity and not all the optimism, and you can work hard, transition, overcome and help build something great — be a part of something great.”

Stonewater Roofing is now hiring in DFW, Tyler, Nacogdoches and Longview. Employees are offered healthcare and retirement benefits. “We want you to grow with us,” said CEO and founder Roland Browne.

Stonewater Remains Open To Serve Your Home & The Community

East Texas officials have been forced to take drastic action in an attempt to prevent the coronavirus outbreak from spreading even further. Longview and all of Gregg County are under a ‘stay-at-home’ order until at least April 9, and now Tyler and Smith County join that order until at least April 10.

“The purpose of this order is to further protect the health, safety and welfare of Smith County,” said Judge Nathaniel Moran.

This means that non-essential businesses (retailers, salons, theaters, gyms and more) will be closed until the order is lifted, while only essential businesses (grocery stores, pharmacies, service providers, banks and more) will remain open. Smith County created an infographic to show citizens the difference between essential and non-essential businesses.

We are proud to assure you that Stonewater Roofing is deemed an essential business, as we work to protect you and your property from the elements. This means that roof work will continue uninterrupted with both new and existing customers. However, with offices in Tyler and Longview, we will not be visiting homes or commercial properties for door-to-door sales purposes.

But there is still an innovative way for you to get a new roof on your home or business while the order is in effect. Remote Roofing by Stonewater allows you to communicate with us via text message and video conferencing, receive and sign digital documents, and make payments using our secure online portal. Should you choose, the whole process can be done without ever opening your door. It’s simple and safe, and now is the perfect time to consider using this option.

“Our office is going to be reducing staff and following CDC guidelines to keep ourselves and our clients safe, but all offices remain open at this time,” stated Stonewater Roofing COO and co-owner Jacob Law. “Don’t be afraid to reach out to us if you’re having a problem. We are allowed to move around and take care of you, and we can do that safely.”

In addition to the service that we provide to homes and businesses throughout East Texas, we at Stonewater Roofing also strive to give back to our community. With that in mind, we are exploring numerous ways to help out area senior citizens and others who may be struggling to survive this crisis. “We’ve got a few things lined up that we’ll be actively doing to assist our community,” Law added.

This is an uncertain time, and nobody can definitively say how long it might continue. But it is important to remember that we are all in this together, and Stonewater is here for you.

Stonewater Roofing Still Hiring During Coronavirus Crisis

Unemployment claims skyrocketed across the State of Texas last month, climbing more than 600 percent according to the newest data from the Texas Workforce Commission. However, while many companies are releasing workers and cutting costs during the coronavirus crisis, Stonewater Roofing is actually looking to hire new talent.

More than 460,000 people throughout the state filed for unemployment benefits in March. “If we continue at this pace, we are on track to help the same number of Texans that filed for all of 2019 in just a little over a month’s time,” Cisco Gamez, spokesman for the Texas Workforce Commission, told The Dallas Morning News.

We want to get them back on their feet and give them a way to provide for their families again.”

As an essential business that provides safety and protection to East Texas residents and business owners, statewide stay-at-home orders have not prevented us from offering roof services during this uncertain time. While our traditional door-to-door sales have been temporarily halted, our sales staff is still communicating with both new and existing customers, and the ‘Remote Roofing by Stonewater‘ method has made the process of getting a new roof completely hassle-free.

“The virus has really shifted how our sales team does business, but our guys are not missing a beat,” Gregg added. “They’ve done an excellent job at keeping in touch with our customers, following up with everyone and visiting any of the properties where they might be needed — and new technology has given us a way to ensure everyone’s safety.”

Stonewater Roofing Reviews Roll In, Along With Severe Storms

Customers have given Stonewater Roofing an outstanding start to the new year, and we could not be more thankful. The first week of 2020 has seen multiple five-star reviews pop up on Google from residents across East Texas, eager to praise us for our quality workmanship, professionalism, site cleanup, customer service and more.

A number of our roofing experts were even applauded by name.

 

Michael Rushing and David Shoemaker, Stonewater Roofing employees, provided quality work with extra effort to details. I had some issues on material delivery. Michael found a solution to the problem, allowing the installation to be completed on time. The company installed quality undercovering and shingles in a professional manner and carefully removed all nails and debris upon job completion. I got what I paid for; quality materials, professional workmanship and they returned my calls promptly.
Sylvia Brady of Tyler (January 5, 2020)

 

Wonderful experience working with Dillon, Gage and the team at Stonewater Roofing. They were very accommodating to our busy schedules and patient with our many questions as we were roof replacement “rookies.” The work crew replacing our roof were very professional and left our yard immaculate after the job was complete.
Grace Manke of Tyler (January 6, 2020)

 

Jacob and Cary provided exceptional customer service coupled with quality and craftsmanship that were second to none! After a huge storm, we needed urgent roof repairs before more rain caused additional damage. Jacob came out the same day that I called and put tarps in place to protect our home from further damage until the insurance company determined total replacement was needed. Jacob even worked directly with our insurance company to make sure we were completely covered. Everyone with Stonewater went above and beyond to make sure every aspect of our roof was taken care of. Everything, start to finish, went incredibly smooth and we now have a beautiful new roof that will protect our family for many, many years to come! We highly recommend Stonewater Roofing!
Jeni Sikes of Bullard (January 6, 2020)

 

Stonewater Roofing was able to quickly identify my issue causing a leak in my garage and resolve in a very timely manner. They were also able to identify other areas that needed attention and the causes. I am very pleased with their attention to detail and quality of work. I will definitely use and recommend them in the future.
Kevin Holland of Hawkins (January 6, 2020)

 

Thank you so much to Stonewater Roofing for the professional manner and workmanship in which your crew reroofed my home. Thank you to Jordan for working with me on pricing over and above what insurance declined to pay. Thank you Cary Collum for being such a great Project Manager making sure the job was done properly. If you are looking to have a new roof, then I highly recommend Stonewater Roofing.
Glennys Harris of Longview (January 8, 2020)

 

These positive reviews could not have come at a better time for other East Texas residents and business owners. Meteorologists are forecasting severe weather on the horizon with a threat for powerful winds and damaging hail. More roofs throughout the Tyler and Longview areas will likely be battered by the storms.

But now you know who to trust with your roofing needs.

After severe weather strikes, do not wait. If you think that your home or business may have been damaged by strong winds or large hail, contact the highly trained experts at Stonewater Roofing to schedule your free assessment and make sure that your property, and your family, are protected before the next round of storms arrives.

Forbes Publishes Tyler Man’s Article On Dark Side Of Journalism

For many people, the start of a new year can also mean the start of new lifestyle changes. Some may choose to begin a diet and exercise plan. Others might try to break a bad habit. And many unhappy workers look to the new year as motivation to switch career paths.

Trent Spradlin joined Stonewater Roofing in 2018 as the Chief Marketing Officer, but he previously spent more than a decade in the broadcast journalism industry. He detailed his experience in a newly published article for Forbes entitled “How To Find Empathy Inside The Newsroom.”

Trent Spradlin

Trent Spradlin

In his article, Spradlin touches upon some of the traumatic experiences that journalists are forced to endure in the pursuit of breaking news. He also explains how journalism employees, much like the industry as a whole, are expected to be desensitized to whatever tragedies they may encounter.

In my 13 years of broadcast news, not once was there a mental health service offered (even when requested) to employees to navigate the things we experienced. Unlike emergency service personnel, we were not on the scene to help — we were there to exploit for ratings and financial gain.

The article paints a bleak picture of a journalism job that was often exhausting, unsettling, and sometimes downright gruesome. It became obvious that, for Spradlin, a career in news was ultimately not the right fit.

I was miserable, but numb thanks to external substances. It kept me going. It kept my job. The cycle continued with no help from supervisors.

Thankfully, with support from his friends and family, Spradlin was able to escape this industry that tied him down. He found new life at Stonewater Roofing. Spradlin is now extremely proud of his work. He has the freedom to be creative and expressive, and he is able to enjoy his job without a need for mental healthcare.

Does your current job leave you feeling frustrated, depressed, or underappreciated? Perhaps the new year is the time for you to switch career paths as well. Stonewater Roofing is currently looking for salespeople in both the Tyler and Longview areas. Visit our Careers page to apply today and get your future back on track.

‘Setting Aside Roof Sales’ To Help Longview Recover From Storms

Extremely powerful straight-line winds caused severe damage to homes and businesses across Longview this week. The National Weather Service said that gusts reached as high as 90 mph along a path nearly 17 miles long and more than 2,000 yards wide. KLTV meteorologist Mark Scirto compared the Longview storms to “an EF-1 tornado and a high-end Category 1 hurricane.”

Mayor Andy Mack confirmed that there were no fatalities nor serious injuries in Longview, but there was plenty of damage left behind.

Roofs were ripped apart. Large trees and power lines were toppled. The Longview storms resulted in widespread power outages and even forced some East Texas school districts to delay or cancel classes. Residents shared stunning photos of the damage on Facebook, showing massive amount of debris in their yards and on top of their houses.

But nothing could prepare Alicia Price for what she saw firsthand. “Facebook does not really do the damage justice,” she said. “You drive down through here and see roofs ripped off homes, huge trees through homes, windows blown out, patio doors blown out. The damage is pretty astronomical.”

That prompted Price, an invoicing specialist with Stonewater Roofing, to spring into action. She began coordinating with friends, business owners, police and city officials in Longview. The goal was to donate time, money and supplies to those impacted by this brutal storm, as well as those trying to clean up the mess that it left behind.

“We just wanted to give back to the community and help,” Price explained.

The team set up camp at the corner of Judson Road and Eden Drive. There, they have been providing barbecue meals around the clock and offering assistance in any way possible. “People are showing up to help,” stated Price early Friday. “Even this morning, I had some random people drop some water off. I don’t even know how they knew we were here.”

Along with the homeowners who saw property damage from the storm, Price and her team are also helping the city workers who have been busy cleaning up the storm’s path of destruction. “The city and police department were very welcoming,” Price added. “They’ve had nobody offer, so they were very excited that we were here and showing up.”

“When incidents like these happen, this is where we set aside trying to sell a roof,” explained Trent Spradlin, Chief Marketing Officer with Stonewater Roofing. “We set that aside for being empathetic to people who have lost something. All of us here at Stonewater obviously have experienced loss of some sort at some time, and we know what that’s like.”

“Whether its a homeowner or a city employee that’s been working throughout the night and during the day, giving them a break and some sense of normalcy, not having to worry about not having electricity at home to cook food and things of that nature, really is the reason that we’re doing this,” Spradlin elaborated. “It speaks directly to the Stonewater culture.”

Stoney LaRue’s Advice For Young Musicians

Country music artist Stoney LaRue was recently in Tyler, and stopped to chat with Stonewater Sessions about his life on the road. He also shared some personal advice for musicians who are just getting started. LaRue and Longview band Post Profit were featured in the newest installment of the Facebook live show which highlights some of the very best regional recording artists.

“It doesn’t ever get old,” said LaRue about touring. “It gets tiring.”

However, as a music industry veteran, LaRue now knows how to cope with the daily grind on a tour bus. “Exercise helps out tremendously,” he explained. “Diet, not drinking too much, just finding the balance.” While some people might find this lifestyle to be a chore, the twinkle in LaRue’s eye shows that he wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

You can catch LaRue on the road right now. Head over to his website for tour dates and ticket information. He has shows coming up in Texarkana, Waco and Fort Worth soon, along with many more. Plus, he will be playing at the Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival in Tyler in May. Stonewater Roofing is among the proud sponsors of this event.

For younger artists who want to commit themselves to playing music, LaRue has one key piece of advice. “Mean it,” he stated with conviction. “Be honest with your talent, with what you want to do with it. Know what you’re going to say. Just be honest about it, because your body will know, your crowd will know, your audience will know if you’re faking it.”

As for whether musicians should focus their attention on the road or in the recording studio, LaRue hedged, understanding that it’s important to split focus. “It kind of depends on what they’re after. A lot of people sound better recorded than they do live. I know that a lot of my crowd prefers a lot of my live stuff. So, I guess it’s just based off of the individual artist,” he said. “I kind of like both, and it definitely changes, but I like the live thing.”

Check out Stonewater Sessions to see band Post Profit perform “Same Sad Song” at The Robot Cave in Tyler, and hear more from our interview with LaRue. What is his biggest pet peeve? What name would he like to have? What was his dumbest injury? (“The bass player threw up,” he recalled.) Those personal details and more are all revealed, so you don’t want to miss it.
