Three recipients from the 2017 “Every Shingle Heart Initiative” upon learning they each will be receiving a new roof system donated by Reliant Roofing.

When Sean Shapiro and Cameron Shouppe founded Reliant Roofing in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2015, they knew they wanted community service to play a large role in their operations.

“We live in a community- and- people oriented area,” says Shapiro, CEO of Reliant Roofing. “Helping our neighbors was something we knew would play a big role in our company.”

After Hurricane Matthew hit the Jacksonville area in September 2016, it became clear there was a great need among residents for roof system repair and replacement, but many could not afford it. As a result, in 2017, Reliant Roofing fulfilled its goal of helping their neighbors in need by launching its “Every Shingle Heart” initiative, aimed at donating a free roof system replacement to a Jacksonville family.

Jacksonville residents were encouraged to nominate someone, such as a family member,

friend or neighbor in need of a roof system replacement. Shapiro and Shouppe initially had intended to donate one roof system, but after hearing the many heartfelt stories from nominees, they decided to choose three families to receive new roof systems.

“People don’t have homeowner’s insurance or have been denied on their claim,” Shapiro says. “They will put a tarp on their roof, and that’s the way they live.”

This year’s nominations for “Every Shingle Heart” are being accepted through July 31. Reliant Roofing once again will choose three families to receive new roof systems. All the work is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

“What we’re really good at is roofing. And that’s what we can give back to our community,” Shapiro says. “Seeing a family’s reaction and the relief they feel from finally having a new safe, dry roof system only reinforces our commitment to Every Shingle Heart.”
