On May 9, Arry’s Roofing added another member to our No Roof Left Behind family!
On April 24, we announced that Joe Liles of Clearwater had been voted the winner in our latest No Roof Left Behind giveaway. The contest began on January 1, when the nomination process was opened to local residents of Pinellas County in need of a new roof. Individuals could nominate themselves or a deserving friend or family member. A volunteer committee narrowed the entries down to four finalists, and members of the community voted on the winner. Voting took place March 28 through April 19.
Joe Liles is an Army veteran who was nominated by his niece. The nomination says a lot about his story:
“My uncle works full time and is a single male. He has served his country and never has asked for anything ever to be given to him! He deserves a break. Let’s show Americans what the American dream is all about and that is if you serve others and work hard good things will come your way! Let’s for once help someone who helps himself. Lastly, you will not hear him complain! Priceless!”
Although Joe didn’t complain, he was dangerously close to losing his home due to a deteriorating roof. that would cost around $15,000. He expected to live in his truck once he lost the house. Fortunately, concerned family members, friends and complete strangers came to Joe’s aid, voting him the winner of a free roof replacement completed by the Arry’s team.
At the Installation Celebration, the sound of hammering, nailing and laughter filled the air. Arry’s Roofing was joined by local businesses WDUV, Sonny’s BBQ, Boyle’s Aluminum and Screening, Angels Inflatables and Mmmm Delicious to make the family-friendly street party happen. When it was all over, Joe Liles’ home looked like a new home.
“There are not enough words to explain the gratitude Joe and our whole family feels for him receiving his new roof,” said Joe’s sister, Jennifer Clemons of Clearwater. “The celebration and install was wonderful.”
Arry’s Roofing serves as the certified contractor for No Roof Left Behind in Pinellas County. This is the fourth No Roof Left Behind installation completed by the company.
