Elyria Veteran Receives FREE Roof

An Elyria veteran is the recipient of a new roof installation. Dexter Gray Jr., a U.S. Army veteran, was selected and approved as the recipient for a roof replacement as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project. Gray served in the Army from 1967-69 and spent some time in Vietnam.

Gray said "he is beyond blessed to receive the roof."

“It’s a blessing,” Gray said. “I’ve been in this house for 18 years, and we need a lot of work done.”

Crews from Franciscus Inc., an Owens Corning platinum roofing contractor in Westlake, installed the roof Nov. 16, 2021.

Patrick Main, Owens Corning roofing and asphalt senior area sales manager, said the company’s platinum contractors are the best of the best. “We only partner with our platinum contractors for these projects,” Main said. “We ask them to donate time and labor while we donate all the materials, so there is zero out-of-pocket cost for the veteran.”

Franciscus 's Tom Schlund said he and his staff are happy to be of service. “It’s fantastic to be able to lend a hand,” Schlund said. “We’re blessed to be a strong company, so it’s important for us to give back.” Franciscus Inc. participates in up to three free roof projects a year, he said. “For the last 15 years, we have given a free roof to either friends, family or quiet heroes-in-need, and Dexter falls right into that category,” Schlund said. “We were invited to this installation by Owens Corning and Purple Heart Homes, and it was a no-brainer for us.”

The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor veterans, as well as the families who support them.

In partnership with Purple Heart Homes.

“We work with local veterans associations to find and vet the homeowners to ensure we’re helping those who need it most,” Main said. “It was important for us to find a way to pay it forward for veterans who served honorably.” He said he loves to assist with this project. “The roof is the most integral part of the house and takes care of everything that is inside of us,” he said. “So, it warms my heart to see the look on their faces when the roof is installed and the house looks brand new.”

Before We Start


When We Finish


Impeccable Clean-up

Our Impeccable Clean-up Guarantee

We make sure we leave the grounds and property as good as we found it! Here are the steps we take.

Prior to Commencement of Work

  • The exterior of your home and landscape is covered with tarps in the areas the work is taking place.
  • The dump trailer will be dropped off the evening prior or the morning of the job.

Upon Completion of Work

  • Power blowers are used to remove remaining debris from your new roof.
  • A magnet sweep is performed to remove nails from the lawn, flowerbeds, walkways and driveways.
  • The dump trailer is removed within 24 hours of completion of work.

The Definition of Impeccable Clean-up in Roofing is as Follows:

97%-99% of the debris will be removed from your property. Please keep in mind that literally tens of thousands of nails will be removed with your existing roof. If you find 100 nails, we feel that is unacceptable. You may, however, find 10, 20, 30, or 40 nails in your flower beds.

We will refund you $1 per nail for every roofing nail you find over 50! (within two weeks of completion or final clean-up)
