For the second time this summer, Lafayette Roofing & General Contractors has surprised a local law enforcement officer with a new roof.

The company’s “Blue Roof” program seeks out deserving LEOs who need a new roof and may not be able to swing one, then surprises them with a new roof on their home.

Last month, a new roof went to a Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s deputy. Today, Matthew McGinley, another Lafayette Sheriff’s deputy, received a new roof.

“We couldn’t have picked a better candidate: Somebody who has devoted their life not only to the US military, but now they are serving their community, somebody doesn’t do that on a whim,” says Darren Domingue, owner of Lafayette Roofing. “We’re just blessed and proud to be out here today.”

Here are the before and after photos of the roof:

If you know of a veteran or law enforcement officer in need, you can nominate them by emailing the company. Here’s the contact page.

“We understand the importance of having a solid roof over your head as it protects everything below. Also, we know the financial burden it could be. With everything going on with police these days, It is essential to show people how important our boys in blue are to this community,” a statement from the company reads.
