Who Wouldn’t Want a Free Roof?

March 12, 2014

We Know You Would!

Although there are a few economic bright spots on the horizon, things are still pretty tough out there. The financial crisis of the late 2000s wiped away trillions of dollars in accumulated wealth and squeezed millions of homeowners’ already-fragile budgets. In Portland, Vancouver and beyond, regular folks are struggling to make ends meet.

While we can’t single-handedly fix this problem, we can certainly do our part to help. That’s why we’re excited to announce a free roof giveaway for one lucky family. It’s our little way of saying “thank you” to our loyal customers.

The Backstory

Our free roof giveaway is made possible by the hardworking folks behind No Roof Left Behind, a national organization that connects struggling homeowners with new roofs. Founded in response to the recent economic meltdown by the owners of a Michigan-based contracting company, No Roof Left Behind adheres to a simple, sustainable principle: Everyone deserves a second chance. Interstate Roofing is proud to partner with NRLB to deliver a new roof to a lucky homeowner in the Portland area.

How Does It Work?

While we’d like to give away a free roof to everyone who asks, logistical considerations prevent us from doing so. Fortunately, No Roof Left Behind makes the giveaway process easy and painless. First, an open nomination period allows anyone from the community to nominate a deserving homeowner for the honor of receiving a new roof. Once the nomination window has ended, four worthy homeowners are selected as finalists. Using detailed information about their circumstances and backstory, members of the public choose a single winner from the group.

Who Can Be Nominated?

Any local homeowner who has experienced financial hardship is eligible for nomination. Ideal candidates may have suffered a recent job loss, medical emergency, death in the family or other unexpected expenses. If you’re in this boat, you’re welcome to nominate yourself for the privilege. To send in your nomination, simply use the form on No Roof Left Behind’s website.

The initial nomination period ends on March 1, 2014, and the finalists will be revealed on March 17. After a two-week round of public voting, the free roof winner will be announced on April 7, 2014.

Start Your Roof Installation Project on the Right Foot

At Interstate, we’re proud to call Portland, OR home. Our roof giveaway is just the latest in a long line of community-building initiatives that aim to build on the region’s tremendous strengths. Of course, we don’t want to be defined by a single project. Even if you don’t win a free roof, we’d be happy to assist with your next roofing installation.
