Earlier this summer we announced our Every Shingle Heart initiative to give away a free roof to a someone in need in Jacksonville. Three nominees were chosen, and we invited them to our office on Monday. When they got there, we surprised them with the news that all three were going to get a free roof! It was an incredible experience for us. Being able to give back to the community and help these three truly wonderful people is an amazing feeling.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A local roofing company is giving back by putting new roofs on the homes of three deserving families, and it was all a surprise. It’s part of a new initiative created by Reliant Roofing called Every Shingle Heart.
“I kind of held on to the chair because I was fixing to fall out,” said Ruby McMullen, who was close to losing her home because of the roof damage and couldn’t afford repairs.
She has one of three stories that touched the hearts of Reliant Roofing.
“Every time it rains, we have some new leak. It’s been difficult ever since Hurricane Mathew,” said Angie Billings, of Orange Park.
A roof is the least of Billings’ worries. In 2014, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Just days after her double mastectomy, her fiance died suddenly, but she continues to stay positive.
