Charleston Gifts a Re-Roof to the Ronald McDonald House

Through Baker Roofing Company’s membership in the Roofing Alliance and adoption of the Ronald McDonald House Charities’ roof, our Charleston team was proud to make an incredible donation to re-roof a house that provides comfort and hope to hundreds of families in need each year.

When the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston called on the help of Baker Roofing Company to identify leaks in their roof and provide repairs, it was clear that the collection of roof sections had experienced varying degrees of deterioration that threatened the integrity of the entire roof. A majority of the roof was beyond cost-feasible repair, so replacement with an up-to-date roofing system made better use of funding and future use of the house. Being that the charity did not have a comprehensive budget towards a new roof during a pandemic when their services and donations are limited, Jason Widener from our Charleston office directed RMHC to contact the Roofing Alliance for help.

Baker Roofing has looked at these roofs several times over the past couple of years and advised the RMH on the benefits associated with the Roofing Alliance and the partnership with Baker Roofing Company. We are honored to be involved with an organization that does so much to help people in need.”
– Jason Widener, Contract Manager of Baker Roofing Charleston
In 2017, the Roofing Alliance entered a partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities to adopt all 165 RMHC roofs. The partnership assures all RMHC locations that their roofs will be provided timely inspections and service on repairs they require, or in any necessary cases, a new roof. Through the Roofing Alliance, Baker Roofing of Charleston was proud to donate $60,000 worth of labor installing materials donated by Carlisle Syntec! Moving forward from this project, Baker Roofing of Charleston has adopted the RMHC house for all future service required and is looking forward to nurturing this special relationship with Always Good Work in mind.
 
We are grateful to Carlisle Roofing for supplying RMHC Charleston the roofing materials needed and to Baker Roofing for making this project happen.  We were 10 years overdue in replacing our roof and are especially thankful for this gift when supplies are so limited during this pandemic. RMHC Charleston has been fortunate to not have had to close our doors during this time. It’s because of our community and supporters that make it all possible and with donations like this that allow us to keep fulfilling our mission.  On behalf of all the families the new roof will house, we thank you.”
– Kathy Papadimitriou, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities Charleston
 

Since opening their doors 37 years ago, the Charleston Ronald McDonald House has acted as a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families whose children are undergoing extensive medical treatment. To help them lead as normal a life as possible during their stay, families have comfortable beds, hot meals, a caring staff, and their four-legged friend, Gardy, all just steps from the hospital. The new roof system installed by Baker Roofing using Carlisle products will help the Ronald McDonald House provide families with a safe place to relax and focus on healing for years to come!
