At Lon Smith Roofing there are two things that we know for certain. We know Dallas roofing and, perhaps more importantly, we know that this weekend is Mother’s Day and we better not forget it. There is nothing worse than forgetting about your mom on her day, and if you do she will never let you forget. So this weekend make sure you take some time to celebrate with the person who brought you into this world.
