The Roa Family’s Roof Dilemma & Solution

Roa Family

Every year Excel Roofing gives back to the communities we serve. One of the ways that we do this is by donating roofs to families in need. In past years, Excel Roofing has donated roofs to Homes for Our Troops, Habitat for Humanity, families with disabilities, and families experiencing financial hardship.

This year Excel Roofing was contacted by Marcos Roa about his roof dilemma. Marcos and Lupe Roa are immigrants from Monterrey, Mexico and have lived in Colorado for the past 25 years. Part of Marcos and Lupe’s American dream was to purchase a home. In 2004 they proudly purchased a manufactured home. However, they did not know that this home was not designed for Colorado’s harsh climate.

Because the manufactured home was not properly ventilated, ice dams formed and damaged the roof. The bigger problem is the moisture that is trapped in the unventilated vaulted roof cavities. The moisture is caused by the OSB decking to rot and sections of the roof collapsed when they were walked on. Marcos knew he had a problem and called a roofer to get a quote to have his roof replaced. The quote was $24,000 for the roof and new decking. The first problem with this is the roofer who quoted the new roof did not address the underlying problem of inadequate ventilation. This would have caused the same problem to happen again. The biggest problem is that Marcos and Lupe do not have $24,000 to buy a new roof.

Marcos contacted J Bretz, the owner of Excel Roofing, to see if Excel could help. J Bretz contacted Owens Corning, the roof shingle manufacturer, for help as well. Because of the generosity of Owens Corning, they donated 24 squares of Owens Corning Duration Estate Gray dimensional shingles. The material was delivered by ABC Roofing Supply from Grand Junction, CO. One of Excel Roofing’s best roofing crews, Manuel Contras removed the old roof, replaced the bad plywood, installed ventilation, and the new roof.

Unlike the other companies who bid my roofing job, Excel (Brock) was not pushy and the deal did not have to be signed before he left the house. I am extremely pleased.
