Manufacturer donates 40 roofs to Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity

Malarkey Roofing has supported Habitat nationally for 25 years, Oklahoma City plant manager Jay Kreft said. The Oregon-based manufacturer opened a plant at 3400 S Council Road last summer.

Central Oklahoma Habitat acquired Las Rosas four years ago when it was fully developed, but with 41 vacant lots. Only a few now remain, which means Malarkey roofs will go on houses in other neighborhoods where Habitat is building: Hope Crossing, NE 83 and Kelley Avenue; Faith Landing, on County Line Road between SW 44 and SW 59; Wagner Lake Estates at Mustang Road and Wagner Lake Road in Yukon; and Shelliebrook Estates in southwest Blanchard.

Las Rosas “has been a great neighborhood for us. It's been a good neighborhood for our families. There's a neighborhood association here. It's been a really great place for us to have the opportunity to move our families into a safe environment,” Felton Gilliland said. “We just have about five more lots and I'm always looking for land, so if anyone has any ideas out there, I'd sure be willing to visit with them because that's really one of our greatest issues now: acquiring enough land to keep up with our aggressive building schedule.”
