Local Contracting Firm Marshall Exteriors and GAF to Donate Roofs in Support of Habitat for Humanity

Giving away free roofs to the community is at the heart of Marshall Exteriors. For years, Marshall's has partnered with GAF and Habitat for Humanity to give people the security of a GAF Roofing System. This release shares the story of a recent roof installed in Canandaigua NY on the most recent Habitat for Humanity house.

CANANDAIGUA (Oct. 22, 2019) – Local contractor Marshall Exteriors, recently named to Remodeling magazine’s Big50, is once again teaming up with GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, to support the work of Habitat for Humanity of Ontario County. Together, Marshall and GAF will donate the materials and professional installation services for the new Habitat home now being constructed on Foster Street in Canandaigua. The house, once completed, will provide a decent, safe and affordable home to a local family in need.

This donation is part of an ongoing partnership between GAF and Habitat for Humanity, which provides roofs for hundreds of Habitat homes each year by bringing together quality roofing materials and professional installation from GAF’s Master Elite contractors. “When we combine the talents of a Master Elite contractor that is capable of installing a quality roof system, Habitat families are getting the best quality installation available,” said Ralph Finizio, Senior Territory Manager for GAF.

Since 2011, the team at Marshall Exteriors has donated the labor and installation services for 9 Habitat for Humanity homes locally. As a GAF Master Elite Contractor, their reliable crews install the materials provided by GAF in partnership with Habitat. In addition to the home being built in Canandaigua, Marshall Exteriors has also donated the roof install for a Habitat home in Seneca County this past summer. “We are committed to helping those in need and giving back to the communities we serve,” said Adam Olshewske, owner of Marshall Exteriors.

“Habitat is proud to once again partner with Marshall Exteriors and GAF to build quality affordable homes,” said Nash Bock, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Ontario County, NY. Partnerships like these are key to Habitat’s mission to create affordable housing and provide families and individuals with the opportunity to own a home of their own.
