DULUTH - A Northland veteran got some much needed repairs on his home from a local franchise with a mission to fulfill the housing needs of vets.
Crews were on site tearing off the old roof and putting on new shingles.
The owners could not afford to repair the damaged roof so Home Depot awarded them a $4,000 grant to help pay for materials and labor so the family can stay in their home for years to come.
"They're gonna have a brand new roof and its gonna be a 30 year guarantee shingles,” Home Depot bookkeeper and Team Depot Captain Tom Guerin said. “So they're gonna be in good shape with this roof for quite a while."
Home Depot also partnered with the Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity and Angelos Siding and Construction to get the project done.
