Winner Selected for GAF Materials Corporation’s Ford® Truck Giveaway!

GAF Materials Corporation, the largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer in North America, recently selected winners for its “Text To Win” Sweepstakes. Richard Widen, a contractor located in Bentonville, AR, won the grand prize of a well equipped 2010 Ford® F-150 valued at $37,655.

Said Mr. Widen, “I didn’t know one text message could win me a truck, and a nice one to boot! Thanks GAF!” He then continued, “GAF’s Timberline® Prestique® High Definition® shingles are the best looking shingles out there. If you compare 2 houses side by side, the Timberline® shingles definitely come out looking better than the competition.”

The promotion was open to all professional roofing contractors, builders, and remodelers, who simply had to text the word “GAFTRUCK” to a designated number on their mobile phones between June 15 and August 15. 

Winners of the remaining prizes include:

  • First prize of complete GAF-Elk Timberline® Roofing System valuing $4,000 was awarded to Thomas Harmon of Dracut, MA; Tina Sousa of Oklahoma City; and George Mann of Rigby, ID.
  • Second prize of 30 squares of Timberline® Prestique® 30 shingles valuing $2,800 was awarded to Andrew Dalby of Roswell, GA; Ruben Degollado of Houston, TX; Fausbino Buj of Colorado Springs, CO; Robert McCage of Bells, TN; and Renata Almeida of Atlanta, GA.
  • Ten winners were awarded a third prize of $100 VISA® Gift Cards.

GAF arranged this promotion to correlate with the launch of the “GAF Promo Club,” a source where professional roofing contractors, builders, and remodelers can get the very best in exclusive GAF promotions, member rewards programs, contests, sweepstakes, business building tips, industry news, and much more. Anyone entering the “Text To Win” Sweepstakes was given the opportunity to join the club and the first 5,000 registrants received a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts® Gift Card.
