In honor of National Roofing Week, July 5-11, King of Texas Roofing Co. LP, Grand Prairie, led an effort to provide a new roof system for the Momentous Institute, a Dallas-based organization that serves 6,000 children and family members each year through its nationally acclaimed Momentous School. In 2014, the Momentous Institute trained more than 4,500 educators and clinicians, affecting 112,500 children.
The project involved a TPO re-cover on a 300-square roof, and King of Texas Roofing donated the labor—a crew of eight workers plus a foreman and superintendent—for the project. H&E Equipment Services, Baton Rouge, La., donated a lift; Johns Manville, Denver, donated the TPO membrane; OMG Roofing Products, Agawam, Mass., donated fasteners and plates; Roofing Supply Group LLC, Dallas, donated skylights and roof hatch rails; and Rmax, Dallas, donated the polyisocyanurate insulation. Jim Whitten Roof Consultants LLC, Austin, Texas, provided design services.
