Due to financial constraints and medical bills, more than 40 homeowners are seeking support from Builders Care, and are currently waiting for roof replacements in Lee County. In response to asking building partners and businesses to assist them in helping local homeowners, D. Peck Roofing and The Harper Foundation partnered with Builders Care to provide a new roof for one of these families in need.
Danette Fasanella of Fort Myers endured roof leaks and emptied buckets full of water for two years with no means to finance a new roof for hers home. On Sept. 2nd, Danette’s wish came true when owners and team members from D. Peck Roofing marched down the street and surprised the family with news that they would receive a brand new roof.
Owner of D. Peck Roofing, Dave Peck, “We are grateful to be able to do this with Builders Care. It makes it even more special when we can give back to someone who has selflessly given to people and animals in this community.”
“I am so grateful that this organization exists,” said homeowner Danette Fasanella. “Thank you so much for this gift.”
Owners of D. Peck Roofing are donating a portion of the materials and labor. The Harper Foundation are providing monies toward the project. Roof replacement services are valued at $5,000. All services and products were provided by the companies at no charge to the homeowner.
Given recent weather conditions, Builders Care has received an increase in the number of roof repair requests and is currently seeking additional support from additional businesses. Businesses who wish to provide materials, services or financial support can contact Heidi Taulman, executive director, Lee BIA Builders Care.
“Roof repairs and replacements are one of the most common requests that come into our office. Rain totals over the past year have increased and so we have seen an increase in roof requests,” said Taulman. “This gift has relieved major stress off of a family that will be appreciated for many years to come.”
