                        HON. RAJA KRISHNAMOORTHI

                              of illinois

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, April 29, 2019

  Mr. KRISHNAMOORTHI. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 
National Roofing Contractors Association headquartered in Rosemont, 
Ill., and its efforts to designate the week of June 2-8, 2019, as 
National Roofing Week.
   The roof is one of the most important components of any home or 
business. It is the first line of defense against natural elements, 
such as rain, snow or wind, and yet it is often taken for granted until 
it falls into disrepair. National Roofing Week honors the thousands of 
roofing-related businesses and workers across the country, as well as 
the industry's commitment to public service. National Roofing Week is a 
valuable reminder of the significance quality roofing has on every home 
and business in the U.S.
   Established in 1886, NRCA is one of the nation's oldest trade 
associations and the voice of professional roofing contractors 
worldwide. NRCA has nearly 4,000 roofing company members who represent 
the entire roofing supply chain. Using its vast network of roofing 
contractors and industry-related members, NRCA is responsible for the 
installation of new construction and replacement roof systems on 
commercial and residential structures in America. Most of its members 
are small, privately held businesses that provide family-sustaining 
jobs for thousands of hardworking individuals who are the backbone of 
our economy.
   Professional roofing contractors provide vital services to their 
communities, on and off the clock. NRCA members will recognize National 
Roofing Week June 2-8 by supporting numerous charitable projects and 
employee training programs throughout the nation. I commend NRCA and 
the vital role the organization and its members play in every 
community, and I ask my colleagues to join me in acknowledging their 
contributions during National Roofing Week.
