When Longmont’s Scott Brasington, owner of GreenPoint Roofing, decided to take the leap and open his own family business, it’s possible even he didn’t know how literal he was being.

Since opening back in 2012, Brasington put a focus on providing a product he and his employees could be proud of, while also creating a company full of reliable people.

Now, Brasington’s GreenPoint Roofing has grown to about 25 core employees and a number of roofing crews.

“In that group, we have a couple that met here at GPR and now have two beautiful children,” Brasington said. “We have a brother/sister, a father/son and we have two married couples. So, we really are a family!”

With that tight-knit group of employees comes a level of customer service and integrity that Brasington thinks rivals anyone in the business.

“Overall, construction and roofing doesn’t always have a shining reputation,” Brasington said. “I wanted to create a place that myself and the employees could be proud of – something they could have a real positive impact on.”

But one thing that stands out about GreenPoint is not just its business, it’s the impact of the company, its owners and its employees have made on the community. In fact, GreenPoint is so entrenched in Longmont that it was chosen as the Longmont Chamber 2022 Business of the Year.

“Community involvement and giving back is very important to me,” Brasington said. “I’m incredibly blessed to be healthy and have experienced success within our business. We have forged a culture that encourages community involvement.”

One of the more unique programs GreenPoint offers is its annual Veterans Day roof donation.

“This particular event is my favorite,” Brasington said. “Each year on Veterans Day, we donate a full roof replacement for a Military Veteran in need of a new roof – one that doesn’t have the financial means to afford it. We are grateful for the military veterans in our community who have made so many sacrifices for this great country.”

Past beneficiaries have included two Vietnam vets, an Afghanistan vet, a World War II vet and a husband-and-wife Marine vet couple.

“Our first female recipient was a 40-plus-year veteran of the Air Force,” Brasington said.

While the vet program is impressive, it just scratches the surface of how GreenPoint helps out in and around Longmont.

GreenPoint manager Allie Davies has run the annual Toys for Tots toy drive for nine years, including collecting toys and even offering to pick up toys from customers’ homes.

“The entire Longmont community has made this a huge success,” Brasington said.

Accounting Manager Andrew Snyder, meanwhile, is heading into his fourth year of organizing a blood drive for the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. The hospital parks its mobile unit at the GreenPoint office while employees, neighbors and friends donate blood.

Tyler Urbania, GreenPoint’s Sales Manager, gathers a group of employees to keep a stretch of Hwy. 119 looking clean and tidy.

And we’re still not close to the complete list. GreenPoint is also involved in helping out Habitat for Humanity, supporting youth sports through sponsorships, serving as a primary sponsor of the Kiwanis Longmont Fourth of July fireworks show, organizing an event to celebrate Marshall Fire First Responders … the list rolls on.

While GreenPoint has an impressive focus on community events, it also strives to keep up with the latest and best trends when it comes to putting a solid roof over your head.

“We offer and install all types of roofing, including shingles, metal, stone-coated steel and flat roofing membranes,” Brasington said. “One notable type of shingle we install is the Malarkey brand. These shingles are made with upcycled materials including rubber tires and milk jugs.

“The shingles are also rubber modified, which gives them a Class IV Impact Resistance Rating. The fact that the system is made with recycled materials and is impact resistant is very appealing to homeowners.”

Asked about any unique projects he’s been involved with, Brasington recalled a huge church more than 100 years old that had been renovated into luxury condos.

“But my favorite projects are the roof donations,” Brasington said. “Seeing the joy of someone that has been given a lift up with a donated roof truly warms my heart.”
