Farmingdale Veteran Will Receive New Roof




Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project Gives Back to U.S. Military Veterans


Owens Corning Platinum Contractors are working with Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk County to provide new roofs to veterans in need and their families as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project.

John Carter, a 38-year-old veteran, will receive a new roof on Monday, March 4, 2019, from Alure Home Improvements, 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 100 military members have received new roofs.

Mr. Carter was a combat veteran who served in the Marines for 8 years. He was involved with Operations Enduring Freedom, Southern Watch, and Iraqi Freedom, specifically the invasion in 2003.

“Mr. Carter is the perfect example of someone who has devoted so much to serving our country and now it is our duty to give back to him and his family,” said Sal Ferro, Owner of Alure Home Improvements. “Owning a home is a major finance, and we believe the improvements that we will be making to his home will give him a better quality of life and a safe environment to live in.”

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 Suffolk County, John Carter was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement.

“We are grateful for this partnership with the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project,” said Les Scheinfeld, Director of Development at Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk County. “It is inspiring to see one of our own local companies step up to help the community.”
