National Roofing Contractors Association Encourages Awareness of the Importance of Roofs During National Roofing Week, June 5-11
Rosemont, Ill.To increase recognition of the significance of roofs to every home and business, stress the value of professional roofing contractors, bring attention to the value of a career in roofing and promote the good deeds of the industry, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is urging communities throughout the U.S. to recognize National Roofing Week taking place June 5-11.
The roof is one of the most important components of a structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair. During National Roofing Week, NRCA encourages its members to participate by engaging in their communities and informing the public about the essential role roofs and professional roofing contractors play in every community.
Most roof systems last more than 20 years; however, routine evaluation and maintenance is necessary to extend its life and keep overall costs down. NRCA urges consumers to observe National Roofing Week by paying attention to wear and tear on their roof systems, and to make informed decisions about roof system maintenance and replacement.
"National Roofing Week gives professional roofing contractors the opportunity showcase all of the good work we do as professionals and members of our communities," says Lindy Ryan, NRCA chairman of the board. "I encourage the entire roofing industry to show the public the pride we have in our profession and to share the successes and good things we've accomplished this year.
NRCA will recognize National Roofing Week by highlighting the work, training and good deeds of its members and their employees on its various social media outlets. The winners of NRCA's third annual children's art contest will also be announced. Children in grades 1-8, who are relatives of NRCA members and their employees submitted artwork depicting the importance of roofs and the professional roofing contractor.
Contest winners will have their artwork featured on all National Roofing Week material and additional promotional material to be displayed at industry events throughout the year, including the 2017 International Roofing Expo® and NRCA's 130th Annual Convention in Las Vegas.
