Rosemont, Ill.To raise awareness of the significance of roofs to every home and business, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced National Roofing Week will take place June 3-9.
Celebrated each year during the first full week of June, National Roofing Week serves as a reminder that the roof is one of the most important components of every structure. It is the first line of defense against natural elements, such as rain, snow or wind, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair.
National Roofing Week also promotes the good deeds of the roofing industry and stresses the value of professional roofing contractors and the importance of making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system. 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.
NRCA also will be sharing its members' stories through its various social media outlets, its Roof Scoop blog and Professional Roofing magazine. Members throughout the U.S. are encouraged to share their stories of charitable giving, crew and staff appreciation, and signature roofing projects with NRCA.
In addition, NRCA members are encouraged to promote the importance of what roofing professionals do by encouraging children to participate in NRCA's 2018 Children's Art Contest. The contest is open to children in grades 1-8 whose relatives work for NRCA member companies (all NRCA member companies are eligible). Entries will be accepted until April 16.
National Roofing Week 2018 is sponsored by ABC Supply Co. Inc.; A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply; Chem Link; Durolast; FlashCo; GAF; Insulfoam; International Roofing Expo® (IRE); National Women in Roofing; KM Coatings; Polyglass; and Soprema.
