NRCA will hold National Roofing Week

NRCA's National Roofing Week will take place July 5-11 to increase recognition of the significance of roofs to every home and business in the U.S.; promote the good deeds of the roofing industry; and emphasize the value of professional roofing contractors.

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

NRCA contractor members were encouraged to promote the importance of having a roof to children by asking them to participate in NRCA's 2015 Children's Art Contest, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, Ill. The contest is part of National Roofing Week and is open to children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA contractor members or their employees.

Contest winners recently were announced and will have their artwork featured on all 2015 National Roofing Week material and additional promotional material to be displayed at industry events throughout the year, including the 2016 International Roofing Expo® and NRCA's 129th Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla.

In addition, former NRCA President Nelson Braddy, president of King of Texas Roofing Co. LP, Grand Prairie, led an effort to provide a new roof system for the Momentous Institute in Dallas. The 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 roofing project involved a TPO re-cover of a 300-square roof, and King of Texas Roofing donated labor for the project¡ªa crew of eight workers plus a foreman and superintendent.

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.

Contractor members throughout the U.S. are encouraged to give back to their communities in a similar way during National Roofing Week.
