Nail it Down Remodeling LLC, Walbridge Road, Northwood, has agreed to sponsor the National No Roof Left Behind program in Wood County.
The firm is now taking nominations for a free roof on its website, www.nailitdownremodeling.com
Jeffrey Brummitt and Tammy Byrd are marking two years in the roofing industry. "We don't just work in Wood County. We live here, shop here and raise our families here. We wanted to let the community know just how important they are to us," Byrd said. "Giving away a free roof seemed like a logical way to do that."
There are a few conditions for the program. Nominees must own the home they are living in and be a resident of Wood County. The free roof recipient must be current on the mortgage payments. Nominations will be accepted until Feb. 9, 2014. A team of local volunteers will review all of the nominees and four will be selected as finalists.
The four finalists' stories and photos will be displayed on Nail It Down Remodeling's No Roof Left Behind homepage. From March 1 through May 31, 2014, the public will be able to vote and determine finalist most deserving. The roof winner will be revealed July 4, 2014 and the roof installation will follow shortly.
Brummitt indicated he was motivated to offer the program in Wood County via a fellow contractor based in Detroit. "We are just so excited about implementing a philanthropic program like this at home. It is just a natural fit here in Wood County. Brummitt said.
Byrd said they are asking other local businesses to get involved. "We think it's a great way to rally the community together," she said. That's why we're inviting other neighborhood businesses to show support by way of donations. You don't have to swing a hammer or even get dirty to help out. Just give us a call and we'll find a place for you."
The business can be contacted at 419 557-1055 or via the website.
