Habitat for Humanity works for various projects to improve the lives of people. It has more than 1,500 local affiliates in the U.S. and about 70 organizations all over the world. One of their mission is to provide houses and shelters for people worldwide through donation and volunteer labor. We have recently completed the roofing project of our school with Habitat for Humanity and here are some of the things we learned.
Gives lots of time and effort
The organization gives lots of hours of volunteer labor in installing the roof. They work hard and ensure that the roof is installed properly and without any flaw.
Gets roofing materials from donations
Habitat for Humanity has good relationships with suppliers, manufacturers, and contractors who donate roofing materials and labor. This ensures that schools and families can get a roof over their heads. We worked with Roofers Plymouth who were a fantastic Roofing Contractor working alongside the HFH scheme.
Follows state rules and guidelines
There is no tear-offs or permits involved in the roofing project. So, the process is very straightforward and simple.They strictly follow all the rules and guidelines for roofing projects.
They use roofing materials that can reduce the heating and cooling costs every month. So, the roof is very energy efficient and will save your money in the long run as you have to pay less energy bills.
Provides sustainable and affordable roofing solution
They support the green movement. So, they prefer installing solar panels on the roof and using roofing materials that are environment-friendly. They provide advocacy and education about using sustainable solutions. They ensure that the cost of the project remains low so that people can afford it.
It was a wonderful opportunity to be part of such a project that taught us professionalism and responsibility towards the society. We are very grateful for the service they have given us.
