We are so excited to share with you a little bit about the winners of the Roofer Dude® Free Roof Giveaway 2109 - North Carolina Edition. It was so hard to pick a single winner out of all the deserving entries that we received. And we are sincere in saying that each one was deserving. Thank you to all who took the time to enter! It was truly a gut-wrenching decision and we wholeheartedly wish we could help each and every one of you!
Before we share more about our winners, we would be remiss if we didn't give a huge shoutout to CertainTeed for their gracious offer to provide all the necessary roofing materials for free. Without them, this giveaway wouldn't be possible.
We are also grateful for the many businesses, organizations, and churches that helped to spread the word about the giveaway. Organizations such as the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, Habitat for Humanity, and WARM Ministries. It is our sincere hope that, as word spreads about these roof giveaways, we will gain more sponsorships so we can give away even more free roofs. Wouldn't that be amazing?!
So, without further ado, let's learn more about our winners, Mary and Harry M. of Willard, NC.

Mary and Harry have lived in their home for 37 years. In that time, the roof has never been replaced. It has 3-tab shingles which is known to only last about 12 to 18 years. So, you can imagine how deteriorated it is. Some of it can be seen in the photo above.
Harry has disabilities that require Mary to be there to help care for him. Living with them is their adult son with mental limitations who also requires Mary's attention. Not to mention that Mary has health concerns of her own. They spend what income they have on food, medications, and utilities. There simply is nothing left to take care of maintenance issues with the home, must less to purchase a new roof.
Mary has an amazing attitude and, even though they struggle financially, she considers it a blessing to be able to take care of her family. I'm sure that anyone who has been around them will say that the family exudes joy and are great to be around. They choose to make the most of their situation despite how difficult it is.
Roofer Dude® is so excited to be able to provide them with a new roof! Congratulations Mary and Harry!
