JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Reliant Roofing, Solar, & Hurricane Shutters (Reliant) is kicking off its fifth annual Every Shingle Heart Initiative to give back to deserving teachers in Florida.

Reliant, a family-owned company that opened in 2015, is partnering with roofing manufacturer GAF to give away three free roofs to local teachers. The Every Shingle Heart Initiative started in 2017 as a way for Reliant to give back to the community by providing people in need with new roofs.

“As we all know, the 2020 to 2021 school year had many challenges for teachers around the entire United States,” said Cameron Shouppe, president of Reliant. “We are beyond proud of their work ethic and determination to continue quality education, even in difficult circumstances, for all of our children. Teachers do so much and they need to know that they are appreciated.”

The roofs will include all labor and materials and will come with a GAF 25-year warranty, along with a lifetime workmanship warranty provided by Reliant.

“This roof will have the best materials on the market, completed by the area’s highest-rated roofing contractor. These educators deserve the very best roofing system we can provide. As a local company that cares immensely for the citizens in and around Northeast Florida, we want to give back to those who truly need it,” said Sean Shapiro, CEO at Reliant. “My wife has been an elementary school teacher for many years, so I know firsthand that teachers are some of the most hardworking and selfless individuals in our community.”

To nominate someone, visit Reliant Roofing, Solar, & Hurricane Shutters’ website and fill out a nomination form. Anyone can participate by nominating any local teacher in need of a new roof. The company began taking nominations on July 26, and will be accepting them until Aug. 31. The recipient chosen will be announced in mid-September.
