GCP Applied Technologies (NYSE:GCP), a leading global provider of construction products technologies, is pleased to announce that they partnered with Sweenor Builders Incorporated to donate roofing product for their 2019 Habitat for Humanity project in South Kingston, Rhode Island.
For years, Sweenor Builders and GCP have partnered with the Emmy Award-winning TV series This Old House® to build and remodel one-of-a-kind homes. Both organizations are excited to further their partnership, bringing their expertise and innovation to Habitat for Humanity to provide a home for a young woman for the holidays.
South County Habitat for Humanity hosted the home project, which provided a home for Mary, who completed treatment for a very rare and aggressive type of cancer called Ewing Sarcoma just over three years ago. “Being a Habitat for Humanity homeowner will mean having the financial ability to be able to own a house and plant roots somewhere that can be forever mine,” said Mary. “To have a kitchen to cook holiday meals for my family and friends was amazing. My life and goals and dreams have changed so much since overcoming cancer. Being diagnosed with cancer just a few years after graduating college meant that between student loan debt and medical bills, I never thought I would be able to afford my own home. However, Habitat has afforded me the opportunity to make my childhood dream of homeownership a reality.”
GCP donated its flagship product, GRACE ICE & WATER SHIELD® self-adhered roofing underlayment, to protect the new Habitat for Humanity home from New England’s extreme weather. The roofing underlayment protects roofs from harsh weather such as wind-driven rain and ice dams. It seals around the fasteners used to attach the shingles, which helps prevent water buildup from leaking into the house.
“Habitat for Humanity is such a great organization, one that we are always eager to assist,” said Lynn Connors, Marketing Manager, GCP Applied Technologies. “We worked with Habitat for Humanity in the rebuilding and new construction of homes for families impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We are now pleased to support them in our own backyard, providing needed roofing underlayments to protect the home from water, ice and snow.”
