TAMKO and Aspen Contracting Provide Roofs to Three Homeowners in Need

TAMKO supports Aspen Contracting’s annual ‘Covers 4 Others’ providing roofs to deserving individuals and families

Three deserving homeowners across the U.S. just got some very good news. TAMKO Building Products, Inc. is once again supporting Aspen Contracting’s annual “Covers 4 Others” program by donating three roof systems to families nominated and chosen by the public to receive a free roof.
Covers 4 Others

Winners of this year’s Covers 4 Others were announced last week and the first of the 2018 winners, single mother Terry F. of Springfield, Missouri, had her TAMKO-donated roof installed the following weekend.

“It’s a good day when we can provide some hope and help ease the burden of people in the middle of difficult circumstances,” said TAMKO President and CEO David Humphreys.

Today, Charles T. of Grandview is receiving a new TAMKO roof in the color of his choice installed by Aspen. He was nominated because of his long history of community service, especially his volunteer efforts with Grandview High School’s theater program. A series of health problems left Charles financially and physically unable to repair his severely-damaged roof.

The third winner of a TAMKO-donated roof is Denver, Colorado widow Beatrice G., who recently suffered a heart attack and has a leaking roof. Her donated roof is scheduled to be installed September 25.

“We realize that there are many people out there who have made a positive impact in the community by serving our country, helping others in need, first responders and even those who may have experienced a hardship,” said Pat Nussbeck, President and CEO of Aspen. “Giving back is a part of our core values at Aspen and support from TAMKO helps us do that to provide top quality shelter in the communities that we work in.”
