Roofing company making a difference

Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity won’t have to worry about securing materials for the next three dozen or so houses it builds.
Malarkey Roofing Products is donating the materials for 40 roofs — a gift worth about $120,000. The first roof was installed this week.
Malarkey, based in Portland, Ore., opened a plant on S Council Road in 2012. Plant manager Jay Kreft says the company has long supported Habitat for Humanity, which provides homeowner opportunities to low-income people.
“We just look forward to giving back to the community that has been so generous and open to us coming here as a new manufacturer,” Kreft said.
It’s a generous gift, one that’ll be put to good use by an organization that’s been lifting people up in the Oklahoma City area for 25 years.
