LUBBOCK, Texas -

A U.S. Marine Corps veteran and his family are getting a new roof for free as part of a national project to give back to those who have sacrificed.

Monday morning, crews worked to finish the installation of a roof for Marine Corps veteran Russell Snodgrass and his family. Kincaid Roofing and Andrus Brothers Roofing partnered to build it.

"The West Texas Home Builders Association donates a roof every year to a deserving veteran," Kris Kincaid, with Kincaid Roofing said, "and the two of us, including Owens Corning, our material supplier and manufacturer, has donated the material, we're doing the labor."

It is part of the Owners Corning National Roof Deployment Project. The project matches independent contractors with military families across the country to install a free roof.

"It's a program where they also vet the veteran that's getting the roof, but with the West Texas Home Builders Association, they've already done that. So, they know anytime the West Texas Home Builders Association's going to donate a house, they know that the veteran is definitely deserving," Kincaid said.

Kincaid said doing this speaks to both his and Andrus Brothers' core values as companies.


"What better cause than to give back to a veteran who's fought for our nation, and these two companies, Kincaid and Andrus, obviously compete against each other, but we have a lot of respect for each other. I think it's cool we can come together for the same cause," Kincaid said.

Melissa Andrus, with Andrus Brothers Roofing, added it feels great to be able to give back to the community.

Kincaid said both companies will continue to do this every year as a sign of unity and solidarity for a good cause.
