As reported last month by Roofing Contractor, the town of Perryton, Texas, located in the state’s Panhandle region, continues to clean up after a devastating EF3 tornado ripped through the rural community last month.
Amid the wreckage, Amarillo-based Roof Spotters rode in to help the townsfolk with recovery and repair efforts. The roofing contracting concern, founded in 1999, has made helping rebuild the community its mission.
It has also rallied some of its suppliers and big-name concerns to lend their heft to the effort. As first reported by KFDA, manufacturer Owens Corning recently donated three truckloads of shingles, worth approximately $80,000, to Roof Spotters for its efforts in restoring those victimized by the storm.
Roof Spotters Owner, “el Presidente” Leland Long, told Amarillo’s NewsChannel 10 how valuable OC’s donation is to the restoration efforts.
“We are grateful for the support we have received thus far, but there is still much work to be done; we are calling upon homeowners in the Texas Panhandle who require roof replacements to reach out to Roof Spotters or their preferred contractor,” Long said. “We kindly request that they consider asking other roofing contractors to donate 10 percent of the sale to the Perryton Relief Fund, held in reserve at Interstate Bank in Perryton.”
Roof Spotters has already contributed $50,000 of its own funds toward recovery efforts, but the need has far outstripped supply in terms of funding. The contracting firm is encouraging everyone to help support the reconstruction of the town’s housing stock.
“This contribution will help fulfill other reconstruction needs and facilitate the return of over 40 families to their homes,” Long said of the OC donation.
