Company gives three new roofs to families in need


The company Roof EZ is giving back after Hurricane Ian destroyed so many homes, by giving three new roofs to three families in need.

Damaged roofs are the new normal here in Southwest Florida. After the storm wrecked homes and businesses weeks ago the recovery process is just beginning.

Jason Polly, the owner of Roof EZ has been at the forefront of it.

“It’s been complete devastation, we’ve gone out to people’s houses that lost everything. They don’t know where to start with their insurance. They’re, they’re crying to me, and I’m sympathizing with them crying myself. It’s just been absolute chaos since it started,” Polly said.

Day to day he tarps at least 50 homes and he said the calls aren’t slowing down.

“This is the worst hurricane that’s ever hit Florida. And I worked Irma and a couple of others. And this has just been, it’s so widespread, shingles blown off, tiles were blown off, holes in roofs from a tree falling,” Polly said.

Seeing it all firsthand inspired him to do more. Hoping to help families in need he’s partnering with two other businesses to provide three free re-roofings.

“We’re gonna become a team and help three families out that lost everything and don’t have insurance, they don’t have the means to get the roof done. And we’re going to kind of help them get back into their lives and be able to get back in their homes,” Polly said.
