Stay tuned for our new original program: Curry Cares!
How we’ve given back to our community and helped our neighbors
We worked with No Roof Left Behind in the past and continue to work with Habitat for Humanity. See below the families and stories from both programs.
No Roof Left Behind
The program we always wanted
For years Gary Curry and Jesse Curry wondered how they could help the struggling families in their community. As a roofing company, the answer is simple: a free roof for a family in need. But how do you find who needs a new roof the most? Who makes the final decision? We pondered this for a while until Gary Curry found our answer; the No Roof Left Behind program.
How the program began
The program was started by two brothers who wanted to help those in need of a roof. Their process was a success, and a few years later, they created a way for like-minded contractors to join in. Through the No Roof Left Behind website, contractors can encourage people to nominate struggling families in need of a new roof. The community then votes for a winner and the winning family gets the brand new roof they need!
Our No Roof Left Behind families
We completed our first free roof through this program in 2014. Since then, we’ve completed over thirteen free roofs.
Our installers volunteer
For our installations, many of our crews have volunteered to tear-off and install the roofs. We love our team!
Looking back on No Roof Left Behind
This program has allowed us to change the lives of many in our town. It has also shaped our company’s culture into something great. We are grateful every day to be in the position to install free roofs for families in need. What we’ve accomplished so far is made possible by our team members, installers, suppliers, manufacturers, friends, and families.

Mary Ann’s Story
In Florida, a leaking roof during hurricane season requires immediate attention. Very quickly, a home – the foundation of security for a family – can be ruined. But if you are a senior living on a fixed income, the cost to replace a roof can be out of reach.
Mary Ann was already struggling to figure out how to repair her roof when she got a notice of non-renewal from her insurance company.
In despair but with faith in her heart, she reached out to Senior Friendship Centers for help.
Aware of our Critical Home Repair program, Mary Ann was referred to us for assistance. “It was scary. I didn’t know what to do. I am living on social security and I don’t have the budget for something unexpected. I don’t have savings. So I reached out for help not knowing what would happen,” recalls Mary Ann. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, our Critical Home Repair program is a crucial resource for homeowners like Mary Ann who are living close to the financial edge.
More and more families in Sarasota are one home repair, one unexpected expense away from financial ruin.
We reimagined this program since the pandemic struck to be widely available to families that need help… now.
We streamlined the application process and reduced the paperwork requirements to shorten the approval process.
All with the objective to serve qualified families fast.
This roof replacement was made possible through a partnership with Roofing by Curry, a company dedicated to giving back to the community.
“The process wasn’t hard at all and I appreciate everything that Habitat Sarasota has done for me. I feel safe knowing the roof is secure and I am okay,” shared Mary Ann.
