Ours Goes to 11

Updated: Jun 23, 2022

Girl on the Roof celebrates 11 years

When I ponder the notion that Girl on the Roof has been around for eleven years, my first thought is the amp scene from the cult classic film, This is Spinal Tap. While we don’t have an amp that goes to 11, I take pride in the contributions that Girl on the Roof has made to amplify the message, exposure, and impact of organizations that aim to improve the lives of others. For eleven years our small but mighty team has repeatedly demonstrated our ability to “go one louder” and over-deliver with both the quality and impact of our work.

Truth be told, I did not imagine in 2009 that I would still be on the Roof eleven years later. But the business has been a tremendous blessing to me, to my family, to my fellow “Roofers,” and to the organizations we have served. I do not take credit for the life-changing work of our clients. But it has definitely been an honor to shout powerful messages from rooftops on their behalf.

With the services we have provided, Girl on the Roof has helped our clients…
