Stonewater Receives GAF President’s Club Honor For 4th Year

Stonewater Roofing is proud to have won the GAF President’s Club honor for the fourth straight year. This is the highest award that a GAF contractor can receive and is reserved for only the best roofing companies in the industry. In fact, just 2 percent of all roofing contractors in the country are able to qualify.

GAF is the largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing materials in North America.

The road to the President’s Club begins with the GAF Master Elite program. To earn this distinction, companies must be licensed and insured, must have at least seven years of experience in the roofing industry, must remain committed to continuous training, and must have an exemplary customer satisfaction rating.

Upon reaching GAF Master Elite status, the President’s Club looks for contractors who have a history of offering their customers the very best service, reliability, and performance within the roofing industry. These are areas where Stonewater Roofing excels. Based on reviews, our customers agree.

“We know that we’re among the best of the best when it comes to providing roofing services,” said Stonewater Roofing founder and CEO Roland Browne. “We love it when our customers leave reviews online that tell us that, but we love it just as much when industry experts like GAF say it as well.”

Recognitions like GAF President’s Club are important for home and business owners who may find themselves overwhelmed by the prospect of getting a new roofing system, Browne added. “There are a lot of roofing companies out there. We know that,” he said. “But when you have someone like GAF helping identify which ones are trustworthy, which ones are reliable, which ones will do the best job, it really helps to simplify the process and put the property owner’s mind at ease.”

“When you work with a GAF President’s Club member like Stonewater Roofing,” Browne concluded, “you can feel confident that everything’s going to turn out great.”

2022 Stonewater Scholarship Winners Announced

Stonewater Roofing is proud to announce the winners of the second annual Stonewater Scholarship. A total of five $2,500 prizes will be awarded to graduating seniors in five Texas cities. Students will receive their scholarships at the award ceremonies being held by their respective high schools next month.


Stonewater Scholarship Winner Emily Davidson

Emily Davidson: Emily is a senior at Tyler Legacy High School. Her parents both work for nonprofits and, since elementary school, inspired her to donate time toward helping others. Her dedication to the community is unmatched, and we cannot wait to see what she accomplishes as a psychology major and mental health advocate at Hendrix College.


Stonewater Scholarship Winner Emma Bosworth

Emma Bosworth: Emma plays soccer at Lindale High School, but a torn ACL has sidelined her since August. She did not let that stop her from pursuing her dream to play at the collegiate level. She will be attending Southern Maine in the fall and will be back on the pitch once again. Emma has shown courage by never giving up despite her uphill battle.


Stonewater Scholarship Winner Garrett Cook

Garrett Cook: Garrett is a senior at White Oak High School and will attend TCU as a journalism and political science major in the fall. Coming from a family of journalists, he has always known that this was his passion. Guided by a strong sense of integrity, he hopes to someday improve upon our nation’s political climate and news media industry.


Stonewater Scholarship Winner Jocelyn Soeun

Jocelyn Soeun: Jocelyn is a senior at Kennedale High School, where her creativity sets her apart. Proud of her Cambodian and Mexican heritage, she wants to celebrate diversity and inspire others to “be the representation.” She will be attending Texas A&M in the fall and majoring in public health, with a particular interest in optometry.


Stonewater Scholarship Winner Olivia DeVault

Olivia DeVault: Olivia is a senior at Central High School in Keller and wants to be a clinical pharmacist, a path she chose after battling her own health issues. She is on track to become a certified pharmacy technician before graduating high school. Having already accomplished so much, Olivia shows reliability through her many achievements.


Seniors were asked to submit short videos outlining their plans after graduation, the inspiration for choosing that path, and what the scholarship would mean to them and their family. Stonewater Roofing received nearly twice as many applicants as last year’s inaugural contest, with submissions stretching from DFW to Longview.

“Originally, we were only going to be able to award four scholarships,” explained Stonewater Roofing CEO Roland Browne, “but then, some of our partners heard we were doing it again and stepped in to help us give one more kid a scholarship. GAFABC Supply, and M. Roberts Digital chipped in to help us help out one more kid. We couldn’t be happier.”

Stonewater Roofing is very active in the communities that we call home, and encouraging students and educators is particularly special for our team. In addition the annual Stonewater Scholarship, the company also holds a #ClearTheList contest each year, helping teachers get the supplies that they need for their classrooms.

“These kids are our future,” Browne continued. “What better way to invest in the communities we serve than to invest in the kids who will one day be running the place?”

Stonewater Roofing is thankful to the partners who helped make this year’s scholarship possible, the high schools that shared the scholarship information with their senior class, and the students who took the time to submit videos. It was a pleasure to meet so many talented and inspiring individuals.

Janie’s Cakes In Tyler Gets Clean New Commercial Roof

Many ingredients go into making the perfect pound cake. But without a building to work in, the team at Janie’s Cakes would have nowhere to whip up their delicious treats. That’s why it was important to them — and us — that Janie’s Cakes get the best possible roof for their kitchen and storefront in Tyler.

Janie Clapp and Katherine Crow are the mother-daughter duo behind Janie’s Cakes. While the company began decades ago, they did not move into their current location until 2009, repurposing the old Coats-McCain Lumber Company building on East Front Street. “It’s been here for a long time,” said Clapp. “I’m not sure when it was built. Twenties? Thirties?”

The roof had been leaking for a little bit, Clapp and Crow explained. They realized that it was time to find an honest and reliable roofing company to tackle the job. “We’d just finally gotten to the point where the leaks were a little too frequent,” Crow said. “I called y’all’s office and got a call back, and then Roland was over here, like, lickety-split.”

Crow is talking about Roland Browne, the founder and CEO of Stonewater Roofing, who personally addressed the Janie’s Cakes project. “Janie’s Cakes is iconic in the East Texas area, and they have a beautiful building that’s just a ray of sunshine to look at,” Browne said. “I’m so happy that we were able to get them covered with a strong and dependable new roof.”

“They were on it, very efficient,” Clapp said of the roofing process.

Crow was quick to echo her mother’s statements. “Efficient, prompt, on time, well organized,” she said. “Anytime we do a project, we like to improve upon it, and Roland had the same point of view. So, not only would our roof be replaced, it would be replaced with a better quality material. It would overall be more energy efficient and more durable. So, maybe we’ll gain another decade or so out of it.”

“I appreciate the fact, too, that they kept us informed,” Clapp said. “If something came up with our oven, our vent to go with that I mean, they talked it over with us. They just didn’t do something. They discussed what they were going to do.”

“It looks great. It’s clean. It’s definitely an improvement from what we had, and really thankful that it happened so quickly,” said Crow. “Great overall. I enjoyed the whole process. I would do it all over again.”

Crow even gave Stonewater Roofing the best compliment of all, comparing our commercial roofing knowledge to those yummy desserts that she and her mom make each day. “Y’all are experts in your field just like we’re experts at making cakes,” she added. True, but our roofs don’t taste so darn good!

Results of the contest were officially announced Sunday after nearly two full months of nominations and voting.

Along with excellent customer service and workmanship, Jackson credits some of the win to the company’s community activism efforts. “Giving back to the community is not a one-way street. When you help out others, you receive help in return. Whether it’s the nonprofits we help with sponsorships, the students we help with scholarships, the teachers we help with school supplies, the property owners we help with roofing issues,” he said. “We’re the best in town because we’re an active part of the town.”

#ClearTheList Returns To Help Teachers From Longview To DFW

The new school year has arrived, but Stonewater Roofing first helped nine lucky teachers get the supplies they needed for their classrooms. It was part of the East Texas company’s annual #ClearTheList campaign, a push to assist underpaid educators by fulfilling their Amazon wishlists.

This was Stonewater Roofing’s third year helping out teachers. It was also the company’s largest school supply drop ever, hand-delivering books, games, pens, stickers and much more. Instructors ranged from elementary to high school and stretched from the DFW area to Longview. Winners were chosen randomly, and this year just so happened to include two ladies from Owens Elementary School in Tyler.

  • Bonnie Carney, Holiday Heights Elementary School in North Richland Hills
  • Regina Cooper Ahn, Bridgemark Center For Learning in Tyler
  • Nicole Dickerson, Stanton-Smith Elementary School in Whitehouse
  • Tracy Dingler, Bullard Elementary School in Bullard
  • Sarah Galland, Velma Penny Elementary School in Lindale
  • Stephanie Pearce, Pine Tree Primary School in Longview
  • Amy Touchstone, Longview High School in Longview
  • Risa Wasik, Owens Elementary School in Tyler
  • Kayla Whiddon, Owens Elementary School in Tyler

The #ClearTheList movement started as a social media phenomenon. School districts simply cannot afford to buy all of the supplies needed for their classrooms. So, many educators started relying on the kindness of online strangers, posting their wishlists and sharing the registries on social media with the #ClearTheList hashtag. The campaign soon turned into a viral sensation.

“I’ve already spent a lot of money on my classroom, and there’s always more things to buy,” explained Dickerson as she learned that her list would be cleared. “There’s some things on there that we use every single day, like the paper and the markers, the things that get used up and we have to constantly buy.”

“I put so much into my classroom,” added Galland. “Not just money, but time and energy and just my whole heart.”

“If you teach with your heart first, more than anything, they’re going to remember that,” stated Touchstone about her Longview high schoolers. She said that many come from impoverished environments, and they deserve to have the same opportunities found elsewhere. “I feel like God put me in this position, at this school, for right now.”

Employees from Stonewater Roofing brought the overstuffed boxes of school supplies to the teachers before the new school year began. “We have come through probably the hardest year of our teaching careers,” said Carney, referencing the challenges that came about due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “This last group of kids made it, and I’m so looking forward to this new group of kids.”
