CentiMark's Great Lakes Metal Division was featured on the Treehouse Masters program on Animal Planet channel on September 29, 2018 for the “Semper Fi in the Sky” treehouse build for a retreat for the children on Marines who were deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. The property is located in Boswell, PA, 90 miles east of Pittsburgh, PA.
CentiMark installed an 853 square feet, 24-inch standing seam metal roof using materials made in America. “The hardest part of the job for us was the time frame,” remembers Mike Edgell, Operations Manager, CentiMark Great Lakes Metals Division. “I received a call on a Friday and the next Friday and Saturday, we completed the roof, mostly in the rain!”
"We appreciate CentiMark’s commitment and contribution to this treehouse project. Mike Edgel [Operations Manager, Great Lakes Metals Division] and his crew completed the bulk of the roof work in relentless rain, working ALL hours of daylight and even a few in darkness,” said Major General T.S. Jones, USMC (Ret), Founder of Outdoor Odyssey. “Your crew was a joy to be associated with, and, as to a man, they embraced the significance of what this treehouse structure represents to many warriors and their children who will spend time ‘in the trees’ in their transition to civilian life."
