Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL) provided a new roof to a disabled Army veteran in West Palm Beach Nov. 17-18, 2016 through the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project. VCGFL is an independent Platinum Contractor with Owens Corning. West Palm Beach resident and U.S. Army disabled veteran, Sergeant Horowitz, purchased his first home while deployed in Afghanistan. After enduring an IED explosion and returning home, Horowitz learned that his roof did not pass windstorm mitigation inspection, causing his mortgage and insurance premiums to double. The inspection initially passed when he purchased the home.
“No United States military veteran should be in need of basic shelter. Helping install a new roof is the least we can do to say thank you for their service and sacrifice,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and President of Venture Construction Group of Florida.
