It was a pleasure once again to serve as a certified contractor for No Roof Left Behind on May 16, 2015. Michael and Harmony Owen from the West Asheville area now have a brand new GAF – Roofing system that will provide protection for many decades! A big thank you to all of our sponsors for wanting to rally the community together around a family in need.  Balken Roofing will be accepting nominations again in January 2016.

Asheville, North Carolina – Our Balken Roofing team has partnered up with No Roof Left Behind once again and we are now accepting nominations until March 23, 2015 for a free roof on our website at,

Free Roof coming to WNC

There are a few conditions for the program. Nominees must own the home they are living in and be a resident of Buncombe, Henderson, Madison, Haywood, Transylvania, or McDowell County.  Also, the free roof recipient must be current on his/her mortgage payments.  Our committee will review all the nominees and four will be selected as finalists.

The four finalists’ stories and photos will be displayed on our Balken Roofing’s No Roof Left Behind homepage.  From April 1-April 17, 2015 the public will able to vote on the finalist they feel is most deserving.  The roof winner will be revealed online on April 24, 2015 and the installation celebration will be held shortly thereafter.

Our Balken family is celebrating 3 generations in the roofing industry. “We don’t just work in Buncombe County. We live here, shop here and have raised our families here. We wanted to let the community know just how important they are to us,” says Bob Balken, president of Balken Roofing.  “We have always been involved in community projects since we started our business. Giving away a free roof seemed like a logical way to do that, and this is a very creative way to get the community to join us.”No Roof Left Behind

One of the most important things to our Balken Roofing family is community outreach. When a fellow contractor from Tarpon Springs, FL highlighted the No Roof Left Behind program as a way to thank communities for their support, Bob Balken knew it would be a great fit for the big hearted team at Balken Roofing. “We are just so excited about implementing a philanthropic program like this at home,” says Balken. “It is just a natural fit here in Asheville and surrounding areas. We recognize that not everyone can afford to get his or her roof replaced. But having a secure roof overhead can bring peace of mind to a family in need.”

Other local businesses are asked to show their community appreciation as well.  “We think it’s a great way to rally the community together,” offers Chad Balken, residential estimator at Balken Roofing. “That’s why we’re inviting other local county businesses to show support by way of donations. You don’t have to swing a hammer or even get dirty to help out. Just give us a call and we’ll find a place for you.”  Last year, we had huge support for other local businesses around the community and it was much appreciated from our Balken  Roofing team and the free roof recipients.  WNC Roofer Contractor
