CAM, DAV-MN, GAF and 10K Construction teamed up to give Chaska VFW Post Commander Rich Daniels and his family a new roof over their heads—just in time for the snowy winter season.
Besides leading the local VFW post, Daniels, 74, is a disabled Vietnam War veteran. Daniels was chosen for the new roof after Lauri Brooke, the executive director of the DAV MN Foundation, spoke with Dan Tengwall of Carver County Veteran Services. Tengwall suggested Daniels.
On Monday, Nov. 28, the Daniels’ home got a new roof for the first time since it was built in 1991. It was installed by 10K Construction with materials donated from GAF, North America’s largest roofing and waterproofing manufacturer. “It was definitely due for a replacement. It was a three tab shingle,” said Jake Iskierka, president of 10K Construction.
Last year, the Daniels’ were able to reinsulate the house. Now, with a new roof, their home will be even more energy efficient. “We plan on living here until we can’t anymore, It’s hard to accept the fact that we get this stuff… and a lot of [veterans] feel the same way,” Daniels said.
A huge thank you to everyone involved and it’s good to know that CAM and our members and partners can make a real difference in someone’s life.
