Charity Roof Repair During National Roofing Week

To raise awareness of the importance of roofs to not only homeowners but to businesses alike, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has established a special week once a year. It’s called National Roofing Week, and it is taking place June 4-10 2018.


It’s a time to recognize the brotherhood that exists in the roofing industry and tip the cap to all those that make roofing their livelihood. A nod to all those that consider this singular profession to be their reason for getting up in the morning.


Outsiders may view the industry as mundane. It’s not uncommon for the homeowner to take their roof, and all that it provides, for granted. Until the homeowner is in need a roof repair, that is, and needs someone to call.


This special week is set aside to recognize professional roofers, and it turns out it’s something more than a bunch of industry insiders slapping each other on the back. Which culminates into a self-aggrandizing ceremony with secret handshakes.


No, it turns out that during National Roofing Week, the industry promotes good deeds performed by the roofing industry and emphasizes the value of the trusted roofing contractor. There are even roofing projects donated to those in need.


During the week the NCRA asks it’s members to engage in the community and build awareness about the essential role roofs, and hiring a trained roofing contractor, plays in local communities.


In years past, good deeds properly promoted serve to raise such awareness. In 2015 for example, former president of the NCRA Nelson Braddy led an effort to provide a new roof for a non-profit.

 2015 Momentous Institute Project

The Momentous Institute has been building and repairing social emotional health for more than 90 years. The Dallas-based organization serves 6,000 kids and family members directly each year through mental health programs and a social emotional health-based curriculum at its nationally acclaimed Momentous School. The Momentous Institute also invests in research, innovative program development and training in an effort to help the children it cannot serve directly. In 2014, the Momentous Institute trained more than 4,500 educators and clinicians, affecting 112,500 children.


Various companies donated materials for the project. H&E Equipment Services, Baton Rouge, La., donated a lift; Johns Manville, Denver, donated the TPO membrane; OMG Roofing Products, Agawam, Mass., donated fasteners and plates; Roofing Supply Group LLC, Dallas, donated the skylights and roof hatch rail; and Rmax, Dallas, donated the polyisocyanurate insulation. Jim Whitten Roof Consultants LLC, Austin, Texas, provided the design services.

National Roofing Week 2018 June 3-9, 2018

Organized by NRCA, National Roofing Week takes place each summer. Its mission is to increase awareness across the U.S. about the significance of roofs to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry. National Roofing Week also promotes the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.


The roof is one of the most important components of a home or business’ structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair. NRCA encourages members to participate in National Roofing Week by engaging in their communities and informing the public about the essential role roofs and professional roofing contractors play in every community.


In celebration of National Roofing Week, NRCA hosts an annual Children’s Art Contest, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply and the International Roofing Expo® (IRE). NRCA members and their employees can participate by having their children, grandchildren, step-children, nieces and nephews enter artwork in the contest.
