GAF and Schulte Roofing provide roofing materials and installation for Habitat for Humanity houses

Bryan/College Station, Tx January 27, 2015 — GAF and Schulte Roofing are partnering with Fernando Morales and Habitat for Humanity to provide roofing materials and professional installation for local Habitat houses. The installation and materials donations are part of a national partnership between GAF and Habitat for Humanity, to match roofing materials donations from GAF with installation services donated by GAF Master Elite® and Certified ™ Contractors, such as Schulte Roofing, in communities across the United States.

“We are thankful for the support of businesses like Schulte Roofing who give back to their communities through programs such as Habitat,”said Fernando Morales of the BCS Habitat for Humanity.

Schulte Roofing is one of more than four thousand GAF Master Elite® and Certified™ Contractors who are eligible to participate in the partnership. The installed roofs will carry GAF’s System Plus ltd. warranty.

“We are thrilled not only to be able to offer this contribution to an organization creating affordable housing, but also to be able to reinforce the efforts of our Master Elite® and Certified™ Contractors as they strive to support the communities in which they live and work,” stated Jim Slauson, vice president of Certified Program and Services at GAF.

“We are so pleased to have this chance to work in partnership with Habitat to give back to our neighbors in Bryan/College Station,” said David Schulte, president of Schulte Roofing. He added, “We have a great sense of pride in knowing our work is part of a solution that creates affordable housing with families in our area.”

Construction on the houses has already begun and is an ongoing process. Roof installation will begin as the houses are ready for that phase of the project.
