Local Roofer With Military Ties

United Veterans Roofing LLC Continues To Cover All

Finding a qualified roofing contractor with verified credentials can be an uphill climb. Adding a focus on a philanthropy-based mission is an even tougher row to hoe. In comes United Veterans Roofing LLC, of Newtown, turning the corner into their sixth year of business with a super-positive head of steam. UVR is known for delivering high-quality projects, doing fantastic good along the way.

“As a family-owned and operated company, we pride ourselves on making our customers feel as if they're part of our family and we're protecting their homes as if they were our own," says Amanda Capoferri, UVR sales manager.

From a quality viewpoint, UVR backs their work via being Master Elite Certified by standard industries company GAF, a bragging right only afforded to about 2 percent of roofing companies nationally. Amanda says GAF also rolled out copper alloy shingles, which help to prevent algae and discoloration seen on shingles for 20-plus years.

Resulting in successful projects are typically customers' top priorities but knowing projects contribute to helping others in need makes partnering with UVR more fruitful. UVR had military veterans in mind when forming the business model. In addition to delivering two complete roofing systems to veterans in need, UVR is closely involved with the Wild Bill Guarnere Memorial Fund and donates to various veterans-based charities.

“You’ll never find anyone who's more grateful and thankful, seeing the look of gratitude that you're giving back to the veterans who've given so much for us,” Amanda confirms.

She says the company's employees volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, working on completing homes that start some people's lives.

Though roofing is their main line of business, UVR professionals also offer gutter, siding and window replacement services. This wide offering positions UVR to be long-term partners with and create repeat customers who can use the company for multiple projects.

In addition to improvement projects, UVR also does a fair amount of work handling storm damage, where they can quickly facilitate urgent repairs. They take on both residential and commercial projects, allowing them to take on work of all shapes and sizes.

“We’re doing a lot more commercial projects recently, including the Blue Point Grill, which was a beautiful project with metal roofing and siding," says Amanda, noting UVR is a Newtown Business Association member. 

Amanda says the team offers free estimates or complimentary inspections, as well as financing options in partnership with Service Finance Company, LLC.

“It’s super fulfilling, and I’m really proud of the work that we’ve been able to do as a company to get involved in the communities, make a difference, and help people get their new starts.”
