A local roofing company has teamed up with other area businesses to donated a complete roofing replacement to a local veteran homeowner.

The process is simple. They take suggestions from the community and find those veterans in need of help.

It is a win-win for everybody, especially when everything is donated: the materials, the labor, the permits, and even the windstorm inspection.

The Corpus Christi Roofing Company, along with TAMKO Building Products, came together to help replace a veteran’s roof for free. On Thursday, they decided to surprise Air Force veteran Judy Hall for her home in the 7300 block of Milky Way.

“We need to give something back to the community, and this is a beautiful way to do it,” said Corpus Christi Roofing owner Roy Rojas.

“There is really no words to really describe it, you know, besides getting choked up. It is something you want so bad and seems so far away, and when it happens you are just wordless,” Hall said.

Hall said financial issues and hurricane damage prevented her from getting her roof at her home fixed before now.

“Fantastic, I thank them all from the bottom of my heart,” said Hall.

The new roof, with a higher-quality shingle than the initial fix, would’ve run about $12,000.

“We try to do at least four per month," Rojas said. "Of course, they are all not donations, but for donating purposes like this, at least two to three a year if we can."

The goal is to continue to serve as many homeowners as they can to ensure they have a safe place to live.

“It is a team effort, this is the network that I have used for my business, and they donated their time and effort," Rojas said. "And TAMKO donated all the materials that we are using for this project."

The homeowner will have a brand new TAMKO Heritage Rustic Cedar roof by today.
