Lon Smith Roofing Launches New Year Of Roof For Vets

Lon Smith Roofing
April 14, 2019

Company builds a free roof for worthy veterans.

Lon Smith Roofing, the largest residential roofing contractor in North Texas, today inaugurated another year of its highly successful "Roof for Vets" program.  This program takes nominations from the public for military veterans who need a new roof but can't financially afford to purchase one on their own.

"We decided to create the Roof for Vets program as a way of saying 'thank you' to those who have worn the uniform and kept us safe," said Lon Smith executive Scott Hamilton. "This is our third year of offering the program and we are excited to honor more veterans this year."

Lon Smith chose as its first recipient for 2019 Mr. Wardell Simpson.  During the Vietnam era, Wardell served three years in the United States Army, eventually rising to the rank of Spec 4.

"Since returning home from service," Hamilton said, "Wardell has lived in the same house for 22 years.  The house's roof has been experiencing leaks for some time.  But Wardell hasn't had the financial means to buy a new roof.  Now, we are taking care of that problem for the Simpson family."

The Roof for Vets program selects a worthy veteran each quarter of the year and installs a new roof at no charge.  Nominations are currently open for the second quarter. For more information about Roof for Vets or about Lon Smith Roofing, please visit lonsmith.com or call (817) 926-8400.
