Remembering Bruce Goodin

Bruce Goodin 62, Webster FL
Bruce was a man who had profound love for his children, grandchildren, and God’s great land. He set the standard for what being a good man means. He provided for his children and grandchildren until the day he left us. He was the great protector and provider to all; kin or not. Next to his family, being out in nature was his greatest passion. Sewing the land of his farm and hunting brought him great joy and peace. Bruce worked as the VP of McEnany Roofing Co. for the last 25 years. He was born in Pineville, Kentucky in 1955. He made a few trips a year back to KY to enjoy time with his family; taking hunting trips with his brothers and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Maggie and Leslie Goodin, sister Mary George Brooks, nephew Ricky Goodin, great niece Brittany, daughter Paula and granddaughter Annabel Hamilton. He leaves an amazing tribe of loved ones behind that will forever be changed by his love and kindness. His children Kelli Goodin, Kala Hamilton, Cody Goodin, Tiffany Gant, and Brandy Goodin. His grandchildren Canyon Goodin, Indigo Goodin, Dakota Hamilton, Alexander Hamilton, Willow Hamilton, Carter Hamilton, Victor Hamilton, Aiden Gooden, Kayden Gooden, Colby Gant, Cheyenne Gant, Cash Gant, Jonah Fink, and Ben Wallace. We will be welcoming guests to celebrate his life with us at Trinity Memorial Gardens, Trinity FL on Friday January 13, 2017. Visitation will be from 1-3pm and service will be at 3pm. A burial will be back home in the mountains of Kentucky on Monday January 16th at Green Hills Memorial Garden, Middlesboro, KY. Donations in Bruce’s name can be made to The Inspire Foundation. This is a wonderful foundation that brings and teaches music to children with special needs. He was very grateful for what the Inspire Foundation did for his grandson Canyon. Children with Autism and special needs were very close to his heart. You can make your donations at theinspirefoundationfl.org.

Tim Tebow Foundation’s Night To Shine

Night-to-Shine-LogoOn February 13, The Lakeland Presbyterian Church in Lakeland, FL hosted an amazing event, a “Night to Shine” prom, in Odessa. The prom is a chance for people with disabilities to attend a prom, many of them for the first time ever. Several of the employees from McEnany Roofing attended the local event.

This dance was one of 45 simultaneous Night to Shine prom events in 26 different states, as well as two locations in Uganda and Kenya, sponsored by The Tim Tebow Foundation. More than 7,000 people with special needs dressed up in tuxes and prom gowns, and thousands of volunteers have signed up to make the events happen around the globe. Continue reading

130 M.P.H. Winds Tear Through the Woodland Shopping Plaza

 

Woodland Shopping Plaza, owned by BDC DeLand, needed to repair parts of the shopping strip’s roof. As with all roofing jobs, this needed to be done quickly and without reference with the public’s use of the building. The Woodland Shopping Plaza was different than most shopping plazas – it didn’t contain retail stores, but rather County offices like the Volusia County Sheriff, Department of Children and Families, automobile tag and title offices and the Volusia County Health Department. BDC DeLand contracted McEnany Roofing to repair one problem area, the roof over the Volusia County Health Department was leaking. The Volusia County Health Department was approximately 30,000 square feet and served about 16,000 residents. The work needed to be done quickly and quietly as to not disturb the Health Department. McEnany Roofing could not have forecasted what Mother Nature had in store for the town of DeLand in the next six months.

Like many contractors and installers, McEnany Roofing reviewed different types of materials, the weather conditions (DeLand being in a vulnerable area to tornados and hurricanes) and of course, the budget. Having completed many roofs using materials from Wadsworth, Ohio’s SOPREMA Inc., McEnany chose SOPREMA’S SOPRAFIX System. Why SOPREMA? “We’ve done a ton of SOPREMA [roofs] over the years. It’s quick and easy to use,” states Dan Noderer of McEnany Roofing. “It’s a top-notch system; SOPREMA’S like the Cadillac of roofing because of its high quality. Plus it’s reasonably priced too.”

In less than two months, McEnany Roofing finished repairing the roof with SOPREMA’S system. On the morning of Friday, February 2, 2007, Florida once again experienced an all too familiar natural disaster – tornados. During the aftermath, the entire nation watched, listened and offered help to areas such as Lady Lake, Lake Mack, DeLand and Smyrna Beach. Three separate tornados hit Florida within an hour and a half. By the time the second tornado passed through Lake Mack to DeLand, it weakened from only 1 mph shy of an F4 (160-165 mph) to an F2 (130-135 mph) tornado.

The second tornado swept through DeLand, devastating the town and destroying the Woodland Shopping Plaza. After appraising the damage, BDC DeLand was amazed by
the site of the plaza and its surroundings: the roof above the Volusia County Health Department (the very roof McEnany repaired just six months previous) remained
intact where the building was still standing. The roof that covered the other county offices was gone. The remaining portion of the County Health Department roof had some
damage from debris however the SOPRAFIX system and the flashing remained in the same place it was installed. Unfortunately, some of the walls did not withstand
the tornado, causing the entire section to be officially condemned.

The Volusia County Health Department moved elsewhere, allowing services to continue to the public. Meanwhile, the area began to clean up the surrounding damage. Because the roof built with SOPREMA materials withstood the tornado, McEnany Roofing was again asked to use SOPREMA’S products for the newly built structure and re-roof the other buildings within the plaza. Construction of the new building and re-roof began in the summer of 2007.

Hurricane Safety Tips

High winds can bring costly damage to your property and pose a risk to your well-being. Here’s a list of 10 hurricane safety tips, compiled from the landscaping perspective. Taking note of hurricane safety tips — and acting in time — can save you the costs of wind damage to your yard or home. Following hurricane safety tips can also save you the aggravation of having to replace items you take for granted in your yard. While some of these recommendations aren’t technically hurricane safety tips, all are still well worth considering.

Hurricane Safety Tips for Yards: Just Before the Storm

  1. Make sure shed doors are closed tightly: otherwise, they could end up blowing off their hinges and becoming dangerous projectiles.
  2. Bring in flags and awnings.
  3. Hurricane safety tips for your vehicle: don’t park cars under trees (especially if you may be in the car when the storm strikes!).
  4. Firmly stake tall garden plants that could snap in high winds.
  5. Store lawn ornaments away, such as gazing balls. Not only is it a matter of saving the ornaments, but they can become dangerous projectiles in a storm!
  6. Remove house ornaments that are not secure, such as fall wreath displays.
  7. Check pool covers to ensure that they are secure.
  8. Harvest any fragile items in the garden that are mature enough to be picked, including flowers to be used for cut flower arrangements. There’s no point in letting the storm wreck them.
  9. Remember that storms sometimes bring flooding in their wake, and that means potential erosion problems. If you live on a steep slope or close to a body of water, among the hurricane safety tips you must contemplate is evacuation (remain aware of what local authorities are recommending). In areas of your yard where water is known to pass through, remove any items of value.

Hurricane Safety Tips for Yards — Well Before the Storm

  1. On the subject of erosion control and hurricane safety tips, please consult this article on French Drains to learn how to provide your yard with adequate drainage. Of course, the time to do so is not the day before a storm is due to arrive!
  2. Another hurricane safety tip that must be acted on well in advance of storm season is the removal of unstable trees or tree limbs that hang precariously over a home. For more information on hiring tree service professionals to remove such trees or limbs, please consult Hiring Tree Service Professionals. This is one of the more important hurricane safety tips here, since falling trees and limbs pose a hazard to your person, too. Consider hiring a pro if this isn’t a job you think you can handle yourself.
