Southeastern Metals® welcomed the opportunity to give back to the community through one of their customers, Suncoast Roofers Supply. Scott Langeneger, SRS Branch Manager, had an existing relationship with the Chair and Founder of Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary, Kay Rosaire, and saw an opportunity for all three parties to partner together to give back to the Sanctuary.

Southeastern Metals® donated a complete metal roofing system to include 35 SM-RIB 29 gauge Galvalume panels to complete the Lion and Tiger habitats. Metal Roofing Panels are an energy efficient and low maintenance solution for residential and other roofing projects.

“Southeastern Metals was excited for the opportunity to partner with Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary along with Suncoast Roofers Supply to give back to the community of Sarasota,” said Doug Hibbard, Sales and Marketing Director for Southeasern Metals®.
