Thermal Roof System’s Tom Schaal Appointed to Board of Directors of Rebuilding Together Sacramento

SACRAMENTO, Calif. − April 29, 2010 − Tom Schaal, vice president of sales and marketing at Thermal Roof Systems (TRS),  one of the top U.S. installers of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing, was appointed to the Board of Directors of Rebuilding Together Sacramento.  Rebuilding Together is a not-for-profit organization that creates affordable, safe and efficient housing through home repairs and modifications on existing homes.

”We are proud of Tom’s appointment to the Rebuilding Together board.  At TRS, community involvement is important and we encourage all of our employees to be active participants where we live, work and play,” said Al Kennedy, general manager of TRS.

TRS has been involved in a number of efforts to improve and give back to the Sacramento area and surrounding communities. The company will participate in Rebuilding Together efforts by donating materials and installing SPF roofs on several dilapidated houses in the Sacramento region.

“Helping the community has always been a priority and something that I enjoy doing. Not only does the Rebuilding Together team help homeowners in need, but the corporate sponsor’s volunteer workers get a great team-building experience – one that results in better Monday through Friday productivity,” added Schaal. “I look forward to working with the board to further its mission of assisting disabled, low income and aging homeowners who are in need of home modifications to ensure a safe living environment.”

In addition to Rebuilding Together Sacramento, Schaal is also a board member of the FBI Citizens Academy and the Sacramento chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association.
