July 5 – 11, 2015
The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) created National Roofing Week (NRW) to increase awareness across the U.S. about the significance of roofs to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry. This year NRCA is teaming up with the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers & Allied Workers to promote NRW on a wider scale and get more communities involved.
The roof is one of the most important components of a home or business's structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair. NRW promotes the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.
Past NRW events have included an NRCA-hosted community service day where members volunteered their services on a roof system repair project in the Chicago area. The association also sponsors an art contest for children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA contractor members or their employees. This year's entries must be received by April 15.
The United Union of Roofers would like to encourage all local leaders and members to get involved in NRW by endorsing it on social media and hosting events such as community service days or public outreach. If you have an idea for NRW, please share it with the Media Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning submission in the NRCA 2014 Children's Art Contest Grade 4-6 was this drawing by Alexandra Buckner. For more information, including contest rules and an entry form, click here.
