BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Owens Corning Platinum Contractors are working with Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County to provide new roofs to veterans in need and their families as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project.
Mikey Riedl, a U.S. Navy veteran who served on the USS Iowa and USS Shenandoah battleships, will receive a new roof on Thursday, Nov., 7 from Total Home Roofing, an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Contractor.
This nationwide effort is a way to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country, and the families who support them. Since the inception of the Owens Corning National Roof Deployment Project in 2016, more than 140 military members have received new roofs.
Mr. Riedl works as a counselor for a local helpline service for veterans and is also a certified dog trainer, with many of his German Shepherds being donated to Veteran Service Dog units.
“Mr. Riedl has a long history of putting others first and making sacrifices for the greater good of our country,” said Dan Reed, President for Total Home Roofing.
“We are honored to be a part of the Roof Deployment Project, give back to Mr. Riedl, and demonstrate how much our community appreciates his service.”
Owens Corning Roofing and its network of independent Platinum Contractors, along with support from the Owens Corning Foundation, are donating roofing materials and labor to replace roofing shingles on the homes of military veterans and their families throughout the country.
Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County, Mr. Riedl was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement.
“We are proud to support the Roof Deployment Project, an inspiring initiative that does so much for veterans in need in communities across the country,” said Tom Clifford, Neighborhood Revitalization Coordinator at Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County. “It makes us proud to see a local business, Total Home Roofing, pitch in and donate a day’s worth of labor for the cause.”
