Veteran’s Widow Receives New Roof

RCS Roof Replaced For Veteran
November 30, 2019 at 6:00 a.m.

By Lauren White, RCS Reporter.

Local company provides an act of kindness to a veteran’s widow.

In Woodstock-Towne Lake, Georgia, the wife of a veteran was faced with a myriad of difficulties.  Her husband was fighting stage 4 cancer, her homeowner’s insurance company identified roof damage, the roofer she hired didn’t make the repairs to the standards of the insurance company and refused to do so, and then her insurance was cancelled.  Unfortunately, while all of this was happening, her husband passed away at age 50. He had a rare and severe form of cancer and.  

This woman shared her story with Patch and explained, “The situation got so dire, I enlisted the aid of the Insurance Commissioner and I tacked shingles down with adhesive myself.”  In July, shingles began creasing from nail pops. So she started making calls to get an assessment, but never received an estimate. Then she turned her search for a reputable roofer online.  Having scheduled an assessment finally, she began to worry she wouldn’t be able to afford the repairs. She shared, “...I actually placed my kettlebell weights on the roof to try to flatten the creased shingles and bought adhesive to tack them down.”  She knew leaving the roof as is could lead to more leaks and more damage.  

When Tony Imbordino, owner of Infinity Roofing Contractors Inc. heard the story from his wife, he wanted to help.  He contacted his GAF suppliers who donated the materials, and Tony and his employees donated their time and labor.  They started working at eight in the morning and finished the install by the end of the day. The widow explained, “It turns out that my roof had 5 nail pops, 8 sheets of moisture damaged decking and shingle lifting that would have caused leaks and additional structural erosion, but Infinity Roofing took care of everything.  My new roof is structurally sound, no more impending leaks, the new roof will reduce the cost of home insurance and the roof looks great.”  

This “heart-warming gesture of human kindness” was well received by the widow.  She expressed, “This unexpected blessing is the most generous help I’ve ever received in my lifetime!  They went above and beyond to assist a struggling widow and I am humbled by a rare gift of this magnitude.”  Now she won’t have to climb back onto the roof to tack shingles down or flatten them with her kettlebell weights.  She can enjoy living in the home her husband provided for her and her family.
