Jesse Shea, project manager of Titan Roofing and Exteriors in western Iowa, has an opportunity to for the public to support a local veteran as he introduces his company to the area.

Sponsored by Titan Roofing and GAF, which is a roofing materials company, a local veteran will be chosen to receive a new roof with their choice of GAF Timberline HD shingles.

Based in Des Moines and operated by veterans, Titan Roofing and Exterior’s mission is to provide “superior customer service and honesty through the restoration process” — which includes philanthropic contributions to veterans in need through the Titan Project, a nonprofit organization that provides support to veterans and their families.

The partnership is giving away a free roof to a Pottawattamie County veteran in need. The winner will be announced around Memorial Day and the roof installed in June.

Nominations can be submitted by a veteran or someone else and should include a paragraph on why the award is deserved. Titan Roofing will inspect all the houses submitted and a nonpartisan group will grade each applicant on the condition of the house and story submitted. Being a veteran who lives in Pottawattamie County is the only requirement to be eligible for the award.

“Having a new roof provides the veteran with a piece of mind and protects all that is important to them, just like how their service protected all of us,” Shea said.

The free roof work will be done by soldiers from the 168th Infantry Regiment.

Applications are due by May 22. Shea said they are willing to extend the deadline if needed. Applications can be submitted online at
