Roofing Company Provides Free Roof to Needy Family

Posted Aug 26th, 2013 by Stephanie Brown  Category: Community Interest


Toledo based Arnold’s Home Improvement has teamed up with the Toledo Mud Hens to offer one lucky and deserving family a free roof worth up to $11,000 in the Arnold’s Home Improvement “Raze The Roof” project. Owner and lifelong Toledo resident Jason Arnold decided several months ago to launch a contest where area families could submit pictures and a short essay explaining why they were in need of a helping hand; in this case, a whole company of helping hands to tear off their old, leaking and worn out roof and install a brand new, lifetime roof; for absolutely free.

“When we say free, we mean free.” Arnold explained. “Except for wood replacement, we are providing everything, from the tear off and disposal of their old roof to installing our premium, Platinum lifetime roofing system, which includes the very best Owens Corning products, to providing a 50 year, non pro-rated warranty on materials and a lifetime workmanship warranty, fully backed and covered by Owens Corning, all at no cost to them.”

“We’ve been promoting the contest at Mud Hens games, on commercials, our facebook page and other venues since May”, said Arnold. “We’ve been sponsoring all the Sunday Fun Day Mud Hens’ home games, the fireworks, the kids running the bases after the game and we’ve had our employees and our mascot, Arnie The Hammer at the games to make everyone aware of the contest and how to enter. We have hundreds of pictures on our Facebook page of Arnie The Hammer with the kids and he’s signed hundreds of autographs for the kids at these games. He’s quite the hit with both the kids and the parents. He even runs the bases with the kids.”

“We have now announced our 10 finalists and are letting the public decide the winner by voting on our Facebook page, where their photos and essays are posted. We have some very, very compelling stories out there of people who are really in dire need of a new roof. Some of the stories actually brought tears to our eyes.” Jason stated.

“We believe in our local community”, Jason continued, “and in giving back. The over 23 years we’ve been in business is because of the support we’ve received from our community. So what better way to give back than to do this for an area family that’s in need, while teaming up with our beloved Mud Hens and our fortune 500 company, Owens Corning, that’s located right here in our own back yard. I’ve lived in Toledo all my life and it’s important to me to better my community in whatever way I can.”

This isn’t the first time Arnold’s Home Improvement has embarked on such a major endeavor to dramatically change and enhance a family’s life for free. Three years ago, Jason created and spearheaded what is known as The Garcia Project, in which Arnold’s Home Improvement took the lead and recruited several other local contractors to participate in building a brand new addition onto the back of the house of a local family with triplets, 2 of whom have cerebral palsy.

Join the Arnold’s Home Improvement family in being a part of this inspiring project. “We invite everyone to go to our Facebook page.” Jason challenged; “View the photos and essays of our 10 finalists and vote for who you think is the most deserving recipient of our free, premium, Platinum roofing system. We’ll be announcing the winner, live at the Mud Hens August 31st final home game of the season, so make sure to vote now.”
