No Roof Left Behind – 2019 Rockingham County, NC Edition Special Announcement
November 8
By Luke Wilson | NRLB, Roofing Contractors

Jerry and Hilda Trent of Eden, NC have been named as winners of a new roof in Skywalker Roofing’s No Roof Left BehindTM – 2019 Rockingham County, NC initiative!

Jerry Trent is a U.S. veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange while serving during the Vietnam War, and as a result, he now suffers with COPD. With his current breathing struggles, it’s all Jerry can do to walk from one room to the next. Jerry and Hilda also recently lost their 22-year-old grandson who had lived with them since birth. The wounds of that loss are still very fresh, and the Trents have just been facing some really tough obstacles – including the need to have their roof replaced.

Skywalker Roofing will soon be scheduling an Installation Celebration to kick off the project for the Trents. This will be a family-friendly, festival-style neighborhood event, and all are welcome to come celebrate with us! And since Skywalker is committed to doing everything with excellence, this won’t just be some run-of-the-mill roof replacement, either. We choose to go the extra mile for our NRLB winners by installing a complete roofing system with premium components from Owens Corning, ensuring that this is the last roof they’ll ever need!

Of course, the downside is that this also means our other three NRLB finalists – Mario Puleo of Madison, NC, Dale & Vickie Hall of Reidsville, NC, and Bill & Sandy Vernon of Stoneville, NC – didn’t win. This is what’s tough about a contest like this, because each of the other 3 finalists are really deserving of some help, too. In fact, this dilemma has been causing Skywalker Roofing owner Luke Wilson to lose a good amount of sleep over the past few weeks. Wilson knew as soon as he met the other three NRLB finalist families that he wanted to help them, too; he just didn’t know how he’d be able to afford to do so.

And this leads us to what truly is a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Thanks to the generous support of Owens Corning, the Purple Heart Foundation, and the Gary Sinise Foundation, Skywalker has actually raised enough funds for materials (Skywalker is donating the labor for the installations) to be able to provide FREE roof replacements for ALL FOUR of our NRLB finalists! Not only that, but Skywalker was even able to respond to a special need that was shared with us by the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project, and we’ve provided a FIFTH free roof for a special family in Elkin, NC!

We just thought that was some good news that’s worth sharing and celebrating! If you’d like to hear Luke Wilson tell the touching story of how these five free roofs were made possible, you can watch the video here:

Skywalker owner Luke Wilson also shares this personal perspective and reflection: “No Roof Left Behind is a community effort that continues to touch me and change me. It’s reminded me that this is why I’m here – to help grow and sustain a successful business through Skywalker Roofing so that we’ll be in a position to help as many people as possible.”


No Roof Left Behind is a nationwide program that gives folks in the community a way to help their good neighbors that have fallen on hard times. The No Roof Left Behind program provides select local contractors like Skywalker the framework to provide a new roof at no cost to a deserving homeowner in need.
