Danville company to give away roof to someone in need

In an attempt to make the holiday season a little brighter for someone, a local business is again giving away a new roof — but they need help to find the perfect recipients.

“We just like to give back,” said Devin McCloskey of Choice Contracting.

“If someone’s in the position to help someone in need, it’s the right thing to do,” McCloskey said.

With that idea in mind, they’re turning to the community again to help. From now until New Year’s Eve, names, addresses and phone numbers can be submitted to Choice Contracting through their Facebook page, at www.facebook.com/choicecontractingky/, through their email at info@choicecontractingky.com or by calling their office at (859) 209-2758.

Last year, they got many submissions, he said, but settled on the home of Ethel Sleet in Perryville to receive the roof repair. The roof ended up being a full replacement, McCloskey said, as they replaced the roof and the plywood underneath.

“It was a big production,” he said.

Choice Contracting launched in 2015, and work on roofing, siding, gutters and interiors, specializing in facilitating insurance claims. That knowledge enabled them to help a few others out with smaller repairs at little or no cost to the homeowners.

Along with the names, McCloskey said, they would like a good reason as to why the person should be chosen, as to help pick someone who truly needs it.

McCloskey and Stout will inspect the submitted homes at the first of the New Year and announce a winner in January.

It’s a tradition they plan to continue each year.

“We’re fortunate enough; we’ve done well,” McCloskey said. “We’re blessed.”
