Florida roofing company gives back with Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project and Support Our Troops   


West Palm Beach, Fla. — Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL) will provide a new roof to a disabled Army veteran in West Palm Beach Nov. 17-18 through the Owens Corning’s national Roof Deployment Project in partnership with Support Our Troops®. VCGFL is an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor– a member of a nationwide network of more than 300 contractors.  As a way to show gratitude to veterans, servicemen and women and families who have made great sacrifices, Venture Construction Group of Florida will provide labor to build a new roof, and Owens Corning donates the materials.

West Palm Beach resident and U.S. Army disabled veteran, Sergeant Horowitz, purchased his first home while deployed in Afghanistan. After enduring an IED explosion and returning back home, Horowitz learned that his roof did not pass windstorm mitigation inspection, causing his mortgage and insurance premiums to double. The inspection initially passed when he purchased the home.

“No United States military veteran should be in need of basic shelter. Helping install a new roof is the least we can do to say thank you for their service and sacrifice,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and President of Venture Construction Group of Florida.

Owens Corning, its Platinum Preferred member network, the Owens Corning Foundation and Support Our Troops hopes to lessen stressors that can burden military families in their daily lives.

“I believe widespread civilian support is essential to the morale and well-being of our American troops and their families. The Roof Deployment Project makes a huge difference in military families’ lives, and Support Our Troops is honored to be a part of this program. We have a basic moral obligation of stepping up for those who preserve our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses,” says Martin C. Boire, Executive Director of Support Our Troops.

The national Roof Deployment Project has already helped more than a dozen military families across the country this year.

In addition to providing construction, renovation and restoration services, Venture Construction Group of Florida is committed to educating property owners through the insurance restoration process including damage from hail, tornadoes, hurricanes, wind, fire and flood. Giving back and helping others is an integral part of the company’s mission.
