BUFFALO, N.Y. -- August 12, 2013

Gibraltar Industries (NASDAQ: ROCK) today announced that President and Chief
Operating Officer Henning Kornbrekke will retire from the company at the end
of 2013. Gibraltar has retained Korn/Ferry International to assist the board
of directors in its search for a replacement.

Kornbrekke has served as Gibraltar’s president and chief operating officer
since 2004, after joining the company as president of its Building Products
Group in 2002.

“Henning Kornbrekke has done an outstanding job as Gibraltar’s President and
COO and has been a trusted confidant to me and a friend as well during the
past twelve years,” said Brian J. Lipke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“His dedication and loyalty to the company during both the good times and
challenging times are greatly appreciated. Henning’s years of service to
Gibraltar leave a solid foundation along with a metrics-driven operational
structure to build upon. We wish him good health and happiness during a richly
deserved retirement.”

“I will look back at my 12 years with Gibraltar with a deep sense of
satisfaction,” Kornbrekke said. “Not only have I had the honor to get to know
and work with an extraordinarily talented and dedicated team, but I believe
that working together we have put the company in a solid position to continue
its tradition of growth, evolution and shareholder value creation. I look
forward to continuing to work with my fellow team members in the upcoming
months as we strive to position Gibraltar for profitable growth.”
