Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation made its third national appearance on ABC TV’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on Sunday, January 9, 2011, and right in its own backyard. Metal Sales contributed its Vertical Seam roofing panels and trim to the garage/wrestling center of the Lampe family's new home in Louisville, KY, the city where Metal Sales is headquartered.
The project utilizes Metal Sales’ 16”-wide Vertical Seam panels, formed from 24-gauge steel with a Dark Bronze PVDF Kynar 500® finish to match the garage’s earthy green exterior. The snap-seam panels are installed utilizing a concealed clip. They can be installed over open framing or a solid substrate and feature a factory-applied side lap sealant.
The episode featured Jeff and Shelley Lampe, along with their six children. The Lampes face continued medical and financial struggles, which has forced them to forgo critical home repairs in order to provide for their children and the community. Lampe, owner of a tree service business, has sustained several work-related injuries, but remains committed to helping his community by offering wrestling training sessions in his garage. The sessions are so popular that sometimes boys will wait in a line outside the garage for their turn to train. The new garage will afford the family and community much needed training space and is protected by a sustainable metal roof from Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation.
As a three-time contributor to “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” Metal Sales has proven itself a trustworthy service provider. All metal roofing materials are carefully selected by the project’s architects and must be of the highest quality to be considered for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” All contractors and installers must be nominated, based on a history of superior work.
