Roof Deployment Project Celebrates Milestone of 500 Free Roofs Installed
We’re proud to share that the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project has celebrated a milestone of providing 500 free roofs to U.S. military veterans and their families. The program, which began in 2016, pairs Owens Corning and its Platinum Preferred Contractors to support veterans in need. Through Roof Deployment, Owens Corning donates shingles and roofing components, and Platinum Preferred Contractors donate the roof installation. Free roofs have been installed by more than 300 Platinum Preferred Contractors in 41 states across the country.
“Veterans are our nation’s heroes, and we owe them our gratitude,” said Gunner Smith, Roofing Business President at Owens Corning. “Roof Deployment Project makes a real difference for veterans and their families, demonstrating that we have not forgotten the incredible sacrifices they have made for our nation’s freedom. We are humbled to partner with our Platinum Preferred network of contractors to be able to make the lives of veterans safer and easier by giving them a solid roof over their heads.”
