Complementing our businesses is the Gooding Group Foundation, an embodiment of our commitment to giving back. Through initiatives like the Great Roofing Giveaway, Scholarship Foundation, and Longest Day Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s awareness and research, we’re actively shaping a better future for our local community.

Great Roof Giveaway

Launched in 2012, this annual event empowers local 501(c)(3) non-profit agencies by offering them an opportunity to repair or replace their roofs. At the Gooding Group Foundation, we recognize the immense role that a secure, functional roof plays in helping these organizations run efficiently and serve their communities. Each year, GSM Roofing pours its expertise into one deserving non-profit, ensuring they have a roof over their heads, come rain or shine.

The Gooding Group: A Legacy of Excellence in Roofing and Metal Fabrication

The Gooding Group encompasses two distinguished companies: GSM Roofing and GSM Industrial, each with its own rich history and unwavering commitment to quality craftsmanship.

GSM Roofing: A Legacy of Roofing Excellence

Our story begins in 1946, when Fred Gooding embarked on a journey to establish a roofing enterprise. In time, he welcomed two partners, culminating in the formation of Gooding, Simpson & Mackes. By 1974, a sheet metal division was integrated, marking a pivotal moment in our growth. In the 1980s, recognizing the need for specialized attention in Delaware, Gooding Delaware was established. Fast forward to August 2009, when both locations officially adopted the moniker GSM Roofing, a name synonymous with excellence and reliability. Shortly thereafter, the Delaware operation relocated to Elkton, MD, reinforcing our dedication to serving our clients with unmatched proficiency.

Today, we proudly steer the helm under the leadership of Reed Gooding and Will Gooding, third-generation torchbearers of our family legacy. At their side, John Gooding, our esteemed founder, serves as Chairman, providing invaluable guidance and wisdom.

GSM Industrial: Pioneering Metal Fabrication Beyond Roofing

In 1983, GSM Industrial emerged as an independent entity, a testament to our sheet metal division’s remarkable expansion into diverse metal fabrication ventures beyond roofing applications. Spearheading this endeavor is Jim Towers, the accomplished brother-in-law of John Gooding. Together, we’ve built a reputation for precision, innovation, and unwavering commitment to excellence.
