Tadlock Roofing Donates a Free Roof During Grand Opening to Local, Single
Mother Who’s House Was Destroyed During a Devastating Fire
Gainesville, FL – January 25, 2023 – Tragedy turned to triumph, Alachua County
native, Thine Strawder, is the proud recipient of a free roof from Tadlock Roofing
after her home of 28 years was destroyed during a fire. As part of their Grand
Opening and continued initiative to make a difference in the communities in which
they live and serve, Tadlock Roofing is partnering with Alachua Habitat for
Humanity on Wednesday, January 25 at 10:30 am to present Mr. Strawder with a
free roof certificate and 10-year workmanship warranty.
Thine is a single mother of eight and grandmother of 14. She was born and raised
in Alachua County and was forced to relocate after her home was destroyed
during a fire to Section 8 housing. After learning of Alachua Habitat’s
Homeownership Program, Thine was successful in her application and began her
journey to rebuild. “I am most excited to host my family in a home that truly belongs to me. I look
forward to every aspect of the process – from construction to moving in, to the first
time celebrating with loved ones,” said Thine Strawder. Alachua Women Build, an all-volunteer program of Alachua Habitat that builds homes in partnership with hard-working families often headed by women in need of safe, affordable housing, has partnered with Thine to build her new home. While
the home-building story was unfolding, so were Tadlock Roofing’s efforts to open
its seventh location with the purpose to make a difference.
Tadlock Roofing learned of Thine’s story, needs to rebuild, and without hesitation
took on the exciting opportunity to provide the roof materials and labor at no cost.
“We’re looking forward to presenting Ms. Thine with a free roof during our Grand
Opening and building a lasting relationship with Alachua Habitat for Humanity,”
said Founder and President, Dale Tadlock.
