In celebration of our nation’s hero’s, Boral and Cooper Roofing launched Mission Reroof, a contest for veterans or active military personnel living in Texas who needed to replace their old asphalt shingle roof. They were invited to enter for the chance to win a new concrete tile roof installed by Cooper Roofing, because America’s best deserve the best roof over their heads.
Mission Reroof winner Gabriel Camerena poses with his uniform in front of his home with his new Boral Tile Roof installed by Cooper Roofing in Leander, Texas. Read the heartwarming winning entry below that was submitted by his wife Susan Camerena on behalf of her Army Veteran husband Gabriel: .
"I am writing this letter for my husband. He is a disabled veteran, served 7 plus years in the army, to include overseas being in the Iraq war (Operation Desert Storm). He recently underwent major back surgery and is still slowly recovering. About a week in a half ago a major wind storm went through the Austin area, the majority of our shingles on the north-side of the house are now gone. Insurance won't pay. We have a 2-story house. I do not want my husband on this roof and I know nothing about shingle repair. My husband has helped many veterans in the past, and used to work in the ER (he was a medic in the army). He enjoys helping others, and I really think it is his turn to receive help. Please consider this family of 5 when choosing the contest winner. Thank you for your consideration!" Susan.
