In the rainy Pacific Northwest, your home or business gutters are serious business and no one knows that better than JT West Coast Gutter of Hillsboro, Oregon. “Gutters are very labor intensive and our whole family is involved in the business,” says owners Jason and Carrie Treloar. “Along with us, our daughter works in the office and our two sons work onsite in the summer.”

While initially slowed by COVID-19, the Treloar’s consider themselves quite fortunate. “We had to reduce our hours at first, but then, with many people staying at home, we had a lot of people needing gutter repairs and installations,” says Jason.

Their good fortunate is not lost on the Treloar’s and they were excited to join in Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project by helping a local family in need of help. “Friends of ours have been really impacted by the pandemic and we want to help them replace their aging and broken gutters,” says Carrie. “With Columbia picking up the expense, we will be installing new gutters – just in time for the rains to begin.”
