Lend a Hand This #GivingTuesday

The first Tuesday following Thanksgiving has been dubbed #GivingTuesday.

It’s a day to honor what the holidays should be all about – helping others and giving back. #GivingTuesday is a day to make a special contribution to those organizations that help in our community.

When you’re deciding where you should direct your contribution, we hope you would consider one or more of the very worthy charitable organizations that we support.

These include Habitat for Humanity, HomeAid Southern Nevada, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, Project 150 and St. Jude’s Ranch.

Giving back to the communities that have helped us to be successful is one of the foundations of the Cooper Roofing & Solar family. We hope you are able to lend a hand this #GivingTuesday.

It’s #GivingTuesday, Please Support these Worthy Organizations

First, it’s Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, then Cyber Monday at the beginning of the following week. Today, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is designated Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is a day devoted to giving back and giving to those organizations that help the less fortunate.

At Cooper Roofing & Solar, giving back to the communities that have made our success possible and making them better places to live is one of the foundations of our company.

When you’re donating your time, talent and treasure this Giving Tuesday, please remember the fantastic charitable organizations that we support that perform excellent and vital work in Southern Nevada.

These include Habitat for Humanity, HomeAid Southern Nevada, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, Project 150 and St. Jude’s Ranch.

WestCare Renovations Help Keep Focus on What’s Important

29WestCareInstallThe WestCare Women’s and Children’s Campus in Las Vegas will now be able to focus more on offering behavioral health services for adults, children, adolescents and families and be less concerned about the building where it provides those services.

A new roof recently completed by Cooper Roofing & Solar was part of renovation work on this WestCare facility by HomeAid Southern Nevada. HomeAid is a nonprofit that completes several shelter build projects each year, such as the WestCare renovation.

The roofing portion of the project was 550 squares (55,000 square feet) of reroofing. It wasn’t necessary to remove the entire roof. Only the roofing at the edges and around roof penetrations was required to be removed before installing the new roof.

Tearing off the existing roofing at these areas allowed Cooper Roofing & Solar to make a proper seal at the most crucial points. Leaving the existing roofing in the field helped to reduce costs without affecting the integrity of the new roof.

The roof was completed with Duro-Last single-ply. Duro-Last, which touts itself as “The World’s Best Roof®” is a PVC material that is mechanically-fastened (using screws) with seams in the material sealed by heat-welding.

The Duro-Last material for this project was provided in sections, rather than rolls. The sections are prefabricated with factory-welded seams. Each section covers the area that would require several rolls, but the field labor is significantly reduced because there are far fewer seams that must be welded on the roof.

The project presented some unique aspects, including in the area of safety. The field area of the roof not near any of the edges was roped off with pylons and flags.

Those working within the roped-off areas, which were not near any areas in which a fall hazard was present, were able to work without the use of a fall-arrest system. Employees working at or near the edges of the roof, where the risk of fall is present, were required to employ a fall-arrest system.

With the roof complete, WestCare will be able to put concerns about the building behind them and be able to focus on what’s really important – providing their services to those who need them!

Giving Back Continues After the Holidays

10NPHY2Giving back to the communities that have helped make our success possible is one of the foundations of what we do at Cooper Roofing & Solar.

The holidays are a season of giving and many people devote a great deal of time and effort in helping charitable projects and organizations during that time. Now the holidays are over, there may be a tendency to reduce our charitable efforts.

But the needs that our giving during the holidays helps to alleviate haven’t gone away now that the holiday decorations have returned to storage. They’re still there and in some cases are even more pressing than before.

Allow us to highlight some of the projects we’ve been involved with over the last several months. We encourage you to support these projects and the organizations we’ve highlighted below.

In the coming weeks we will be spotlighting even more community efforts we are supporting and projects we are involved in and encourage everyone to support and become involved in.

The Season of Giving

IMG_4836One of the guiding principles of Cooper Roofing & Solar is giving back to the community. We feel that it is important to share our good fortune with the communities that have made our success possible and with those who need a hand up.

While we believe that giving back is a year-round proposition, the Christmas season is a time when it takes on even greater importance.

There are a number of great organizations that are deserving of your support and nearly everyone has their favorites.

Cooper Roofing & Solar has been involved with several wonderful organizations that do great work in Southern Nevada and elsewhere.

Cooper Roofing & Solar Featured by Nevada Subcontractors Association

NSA color logoCooper Roofing & Solar, LLC is highlighted in the Nevada Subcontractors Association’s Monthly Member Feature for September!

We are proud members of the NSA, as the comments of our President sum up in the article.

Cooper Roofing & Solar is proud to be a NSA member for a variety of reasons! One great aspect is having the ability to network with other subcontractors that are facing the same issues we are in the current market. Also, our membership with the NSA and the advocacy the association provides is a powerful business tool. It is great to be a part of a group of individuals that also enjoy giving back to the community, and the NSA provides that opportunity through relationships that have been built with Project 150, Habitat for Humanity, and HomeAid Southern Nevada.

Thank you for the recognition, Nevada Subcontractors Association, but more than that thank you also for your commitment and efforts on behalf of subcontractors and those in the community who need a hand up.

“Phenomenal”
