The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is a co-sponsor of Rebuilding Together’s “Kickoff to Rebuild 2002” on February 1 in New Orleans. Held two days before Super Bowl XXXVI, the seventh annual event will feature the rehabilitation of two low-income New Orleans-area homes and a press conference. CertainTeed Corp. donated roofing materials for the projects.

Some NRCA member companies also donated materials recently to repair roof damage to the Pentagon in the September 11 terrorist attack. “Rebuilding the entire structure will be a long and involved process,” according to NRCA. “NRCA’s efforts will focus on the areas needing immediate repair to enable Pentagon workers to reoccupy their offices.”

The repair and replacement of the existing roof system is expected to take about six months to complete. In addition, in October NRCA forwarded more than $210,000 to the Red Cross, representing contributions from about 150 of its members.
