In honor of National Roofing Week—July 5-11—King of Texas Roofing Co. L.P., Grand Prairie; H&E Equipment, Dallas; Rmax, Dallas; Jim Whitten Roof Consultants, Austin; and the Rosemont, Ill.-based National Roofing Contractors Association, along with other industry partners, donated labor, materials, expertise and additional necessities to repair the roof system at Momentous Institute, Dallas. The institute helps build and repair social and emotional health for more than 6,000 children and family members every year through educational and therapeutic programs. It is owned and operated by the Salesmanship Club of Dallas, a service organization of more than 600 business and community leaders committed to transforming kids’ lives.The project, which replaced 26,000 square feet of the nearly 20-year-old roof on the campus at 106 E. 10th Street enables Momentous Institute to prioritize its funding for operations instead of capital investments.
“As professional roofing contractors, it’s our duty to give back to the communities we work and live in by serving those in need,” says Nelson Braddy, president of King of Texas Roofing. “National Roofing Week is important for recognizing the importance of every roof system, the value of the professional roofing contractor and also for encouraging roofing companies to give back to those who provide services to our communities.”
“This new roof is a huge undertaking for NRCA, King of Texas and the many sponsors who helped make it a reality,” adds Michelle Kinder, Momentous Institute’s executive director. “We are grateful to be part of National Roofing Week. The new roof will enable us to redirect funds to invest in those we serve.”
National Roofing Week increases recognition of the significance of roofs to every home and business in the U.S., promotes the good deeds of the roofing industry and emphasizes the value of professional roofing contractors. Learn more on NRCA’s website.
