Roofing Contractor Gives Back To Frontline Workers With Free Repairs, Roofs
The hard work and difficult conditions facing frontline health workers inspired USA Roof Masters’ Owner Tom Kovack is starting a program to offer these workers free roof repairs and replacements.
As the pandemic raged for the past year, a local roofer has given something back to the area’s frontline health workers.
“We saw how much they went through and gave back,” Kovack said.
Charity Hundeyin, who lives in Levittown, was one of the frontline workers to benefit from the USA Roof Masters program.
The roof of her house had caused some leakage and the seeping water had caused damage, including to the house’s boiler.
Last spring, Hundeyin, who had taken her full-time job at an adult daycare center when the pandemic began on March 16, quickly took on an expanded role as a home health care provider. The job forced her to work more than 40 hours a week and repairing her roof was not a priority.
Hundeyin said she came across a social media post in April advertising the USA Roof Masters program to help health professionals. She quickly emailed and heard back quickly.
“We will fix it. Once we know your address, we can let you know what day we can get there. You are appreciated,” Kovack wrote back in an email.
Shortly after, the USA Roof Masters team set to work and surveyed the roof. The team made some temporary repairs and got to work on replacing the roof a few weeks later.
Hundeyin said replacing the entire roof only took a few hours and was hassle-free.
“It only took them seven hours to complete the new clear roof, but I feel like I’ve been given the gift of not worrying about whether the weather will affect the inside of my house for a lifetime or not,” said they . “I have more of a collected peace of mind.”
Since last spring, USA Roof Masters, which offers roof repair and replacement, has completed 120 projects at no cost to health professionals as a way to give back, Kovack said.
USA Roof Masters has won “Best of Home Advisor” three times and is also a Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractor for which only 1 percent of roofers nationwide are eligible. The company is considered a certified contractor through roofing manufacturer GAF and an accredited professional member of the American Policyholders Association.
