Metal Sales works on “Extreme Makeover” project

Metal Sales Manufacturing helped a worthy family receive the house of their dreams on the ABC-TV series "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Each week, the popular prime-time series selects a family that has faced enormous challenges or has had a positive impact on their community. An army of producers, designers, builders and contractors are given seven days to tear down an existing structure and replace it with a fully decorated, custom-designed home for the fortunate family. Hundreds of workers and suppliers volunteer their time and materials in a carefully choreographed effort to build a home from the ground up in only one week.

In early December, the show traveled to Gainesville, Fla., where Don Hickman of Hickman Metal Roofing led an 11-member team of experienced installers on the project. The complex schedule required all vendors to complete their designated assignment within an extraordinarily tight time frame. The Hickman Roofing team began at 1:00 p.m. and then worked throughout the night to install a durable Metal Sales roof as part of the fast-paced construction project. Metal Sales donated a highly efficient Pro Panel II metal roof. This Energy Star-rated cool roof features ColorFast 45 paint technology in Burnished Slate, covered by an industry-leading 45-year warranty.

All materials are carefully selected by the project’s architects and must be of the highest quality to be considered for "Extreme Home Makeover." All contractors and installers must be nominated, based on a history of superior work.

"We were honored to be picked for the roofing contract," says Don Hickman, owner of Hickman Metal Roofing. "It was an outstanding experience and I’m so glad we had a chance to be part of such a worthy cause."

Metal Sales is one of the nation’s most respected manufacturers of quality metal roof and wall panels. Headquartered in Louisville, Ky., the company maintains 20 nationwide branches, and the largest service force in the industry. Visit its website at
