Local Veteran Gets New Roof Just In Time for Veterans Day and the Onset of Winter

Local Veteran Gets New Roof Just In Time for Veterans Day and the Onset of Winter 1200 800 habitatdetroit

An Army Veteran is getting a new roof this week thanks to a partnership between Victors Home Solutions and Habitat for Humanity Detroit. The work will be done on Friday, Nov. 10. During a scheduled lunchtime break that day, Habitat for Humanity Detroit (HFH Detroit) will take the opportunity to award Victors Home Solutions as Habitat for Humanity Detroit’s Corporate Partner of the Year.

The new roof will be installed at 17495 Fleming St. in Detroit at the home of James Jenkins. An Army Veteran, he has called this house home his entire life. He took control of the home after his mother’s passing at the remarkable age of 94. As the costs skyrocketed for home repairs, Jenkins became unable to complete necessary improvements to the home. He applied for HFH Detroit’s Critical Home Repair program, and his enrollment in the program will bring a new roof at no cost to him this week, as well as additional repairs in the future.

Jenkins’ new roof comes through a partnership with HFH Detroit and Victors Home Solutions. For every 100 roof replacements that Victors Home Solutions completes, they donate a roof. Each new roof donated by Victors is made of high-quality materials that come with the company’s leak-free guarantee. The benefits of new roofs are vast, including increased heat retention during winter, water-tight seals to prevent costly interior leaks, and enhancing curb appeal for the neighborhood.

“Today, we’re especially proud to be partnering with HFH Detroit helping James, who has already served us all,” noted Amy Oestreich, Director of Marketing for Victors Home Solutions. “Our military men and women put it all on the line for us, so making sure the roof over their head is the best it can be is the least we can do to say thank you.”

In addition to the new roof, HFH Detroit will name Victors Home Solutions as its Corporate Partner of the Year on Friday. Victors’ impressive new roof initiative coupled with the ever-present need for new roofing in the neighborhoods that HFH Detroit serves has made for a hugely successful partnership. HFH Detroit is extremely grateful for the company’s donations both in the high-quality roofing product but also for their skilled installation to help improve the lives of those living in Detroit.

“Partnering with HFH Detroit and their Veterans Initiative was a natural choice as we both share the same core values,” Oestreich said. “Caring for others and doing what’s right may sound like simple, traditional values, but it speaks to who we are as organizations, and as people. We are honored and grateful for the partnership with HFH Detroit to expand our reach into the community, and for the opportunity to serve those who have served. We look forward to continuing our work with them for many years to come!”
