LYNN, MA – Coastal Windows & Exteriors joined forces with Habitat for Humanity to offer a veteran a new roof for his home in Lynn, Massachusetts. This is part of Coastal Windows & Exteriors‘ Roof for Heroes program, designed to provide a full GAF Roofing System without charge to those who protect our community.
Vincent Gunning, a Vietnam war navy veteran and retired postal carrier, resided in a home with literally the roof caving in from rot damage leading to an unsafe living situation. He wears a prosthetic leg and has mobility issues, making it difficult to manage the upkeep of his home. Eventually, the house became unsafe for Gunning to live in as it fell into disrepair.
As soon as Don Preston, board member of Essex County Habitat For Humanity, contacted Stephanie Vanderbilt, owner of Coastal Windows & Exteriors, they went to work on installing a new GAF roofing system the following week. “It is amazing to see how a community comes together to support a veteran and his housing needs. What Coastal Windows & Exteriors has done with the roof is magical!”, states Preston.
“I feel very blessed to be able to give back to Vincent to give him peace of mind with a roof over his head…for a lifetime,” says Vanderbilt. “Our Roof For Heroes’ mission is to provide comfort and safety with a gift of a free roof to those who have worked and continue to work on the front lines. We need to protect those who protect us and a roof is a promise of protection, security and stability. It’s time to give back and count on us.”
Coastal Windows & Exteriors installed a free GAF Timberline HDZ asphalt roof on Gunning’s Home. GAF roofs are made with top-quality award-winning materials, engineered to protect the home from ice dams and leaks all year and especially during the upcoming winter months. GAF roofs come with an unlimited wind speed warranty, guaranteeing the shingles won’t blow off the roof no matter how severe the storm. There is also a lifetime shingle defect warranty with 100% coverage and a 25-year workmanship coverage for shingles.
Vanderbilt says, “Now is the time to protect Vincent’s home as the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting of a season of shivers punctuated with bone-chilling, below-average temperatures along with “atmospheric hemorrhage” lashing everything from strong winds to heavy rains and snow; a recipe for Ice-Dams. To top it all off, National Grid is raising energy costs by 22% which is going to create excessive heating bills. The time is to act now!”
Coastal Windows & Exteriors were founded with the goal of creating a home improvement company with an empathetic, customer-first attitude based on educating customers. So far, they have donated over $150,000 in labor and materials to Essex County Habitat for Humanity. “Excellent and professional work performed by Coastal Windows & Exteriors. We are very appreciative to have them as a partner for our veteran build project in Lynn. Thank you for your hard work and continued dedication.”, Keith Hartman, Director of Construction Essex County Habitat For Humanity.
“Our mission at Coastal Windows & Exteriors aligns with Habitat’s Aging In Place program helping homeowners maintain their homes and live safely in them with a new roof with a lifetime warranty. Providing shelter means making a promise; a promise of protection and security. Donating a free GAF roofing system is a great way to keep that promise as its layers of high-quality protection work together to keep the home and the people inside safe from the elements. We are excited to continue serving through this initiative to give back to our Nation’s heroes, who work hard and sacrifice for the community every day. Our veterans should not suffer; it’s our turn to take care of them.”, Vanderbilt.
