Vietnam Veteran Gets Free Roof Installation

When Howard Ford enlisted in the United States Army shortly after graduating high school, he’d soon be deployed to the battlefields of Vietnam to serve his country. Fifty years later, the Owens Corning National Roof Deployment Project and Purple Heart Homes reached out to us to schedule Howard for a different kind of deployment: a free roofing system installation for his Louisiana home! 

Owens Corning is one of America’s largest shingle producers, and they courteously donated some of their best materials along with other roofing products to help upgrade Howard’s roof. Our team of professional roofing contractors nearby was all-too-happy to honor a veteran; we’ve hired plenty of vets to work at Garcia Roofing that are always happy to salute a brother-in-arms. 

Now 71, Howard’s been living in his current home since the 1970s. The free roofing installation would have normally cost approximately $12,000, but thanks to the Roof Deployment Project and Garcia Roofing, this vet can focus on spending his resources on his family. Our crew of expert roofing contractors around Scott was able to finish the job in a single day with eight men working on-site. 

With everything going on in the world right now, what’s better to focus on than that which keeps us safe? Although most people don’t typically think about their roof, it’s a smart idea to have it professionally inspected by a local reputable roofing company like Garcia Roofing. Since a home is typically a family’s biggest investment, making sure it’s properly protected is paramount. If you’re interested in a professional roofing inspection, or a complete roof installation, reach out to our team via phone or email today to learn more about our services!
