Local veteran-owned business donates new roof to fellow Navy veteran – Blue Ribbon News

ROWLETT, TX (September 21, 2021) The slogan on their corporate t-shirt reads “Not Your Average Roofer” – and yesterday in Rowlett, Doc’s Roofing lived up to this credo by donating and installing a free roof on the home of a military veteran in need.

Doc’s Roofing of Rockwall is owned and operated by Michael “Doc” Rannigan, a former Navy combat medic who has completed several tours after 9/11. As a member of Rockwall Veterans Business Alliance and other related organizations, Doc is committed to the rights and care of veterans. When he heard that fellow veteran James Norman had been going through some rough times, he wanted to help.

“I decided to take the plunge and go ahead and give this roof to this veteran,” Doc said, “because that’s what we do – veterans helping veterans.”

James served in Desert Storm and was a sailor aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. He and his wife were hit financially when the pandemic hit in 2020, and they struggled to make ends meet as they had to replace the roof on their Rowlett home.

The estimated value of the installation was approximately $18,000, all of which was provided free of charge by Doc’s Roofing.
