Local roofing company wants to cover the community with kindness

Since 2018 this business has been building roofs for those in need

The most important part of a house is a good roof, and nobody knows that better than the team at Guardian Roofing & Gutters.

However, they also understand that for various reasons, not everybody in the community can afford to repair or replace their old roof. Knowing this, they felt a responsibility to reach out and respond to that need.

In 2018 they found a way to respond with the Guardian HALO Project, an internal, team-lead project where one homeowner in dire conditions would be gifted with a major roof repair or replacement. The local community was encouraged to nominate themselves or someone in need on the Guardian website, with the winner to be announced at the beginning of 2019.

After receiving an overwhelming amount of nominations, the team at Guardian chose Cindy Lu Vaughn as their first ever recipient. Lovingly known as the Neighborhood Grandmother whose doors were open to anyone in need, Grandma Cindy and her husband Grandpa Pat were faced with medical bills from severe health issues. This prevented them from addressing much-needed home renovation projects, and as a result their roof had been tarped for over two years.

In May 2019 the team at Guardian installed a new roof on Cindy’s home.

“She was truly in need, and was the kind of person we really wanted to help, so it was very cool to have her as our first recipient!” says Guardian Marketing Coordinator Luke De Monnin.

Since then, Guardian has continued to give back to the community with three more roofs installed for families in need. Nominations for the 2022 HALO Project are now closed and they’re set to announce the winner this week.

“At Guardian, we believe that because we’ve been given so much by our clients and team, it’s incredibly important to give back to the community. This is shown in the words that the HALO acronym stands for: Helping, Achieving, Lasting, Overcoming,” De Monnin says.
