Finding mold in a home can be a distressing and frightful discovery. Even a small amount of mold can cause the occupants of the home to suffer minor health problems, and a large amount of mold can lead to serious and debilitating illnesses over time

"Son, when those boys backed up and unloaded that trailer, buddy, everybody had a job to do. Within four hours, they were done," said a very impressed Pastor Stewart.

Just ask Johnnie Stewart, the pastor of Pilgrims Rest Baptist Church, who discovered a mold problem in the home after family members suffered the ill effects from prolonged exposure.

The mold problem was verified after Mrs. Stewart and several visiting family members fell ill. Mrs. Stewart's prolonged exposure to the undiscovered mold caused her to lose all sense of taste and smell, which led to her seeking the services of a specialist. She was informed that the family would need to vacate the house, and the entire roof would need to be torn down and rebuilt to effectively remove all areas affected by mold.

Mrs. Stewart contacted Watkins Construction and Roofing, a local Jackson, Mississippi, roofing contractor. Michael Dier, owner of Watkins Construction and Roofing, took measurements for the bid, and then called Jeremy Christopher, his representative for Owens Corning (the roofing materials manufacturer) to see how both companies could best provide their services.

Michael Dier knew the pastor personally and wanted to help out, and so Watkins Construction and Roofing and Owens Corning Roofing were able to bless Pilgrims Rest Baptist Church with a new roof for their parsonage, free of charge. They gave them the whole Owens Corning Roofing System, including starter strips, synthetic underlayment, ridge vents and ice and water shield barrier.

Watkins Construction backs its work with a 10-year labor warranty on all its roofs. "It's a strong initiative within our company to participate in [community-related] projects like this one," said Mr. Christopher. Pilgrims Rest Baptist Church is thankful for the involvement of both Owens Corning and Watkins Construction and Roofing.

"Son, when those boys backed up and unloaded that trailer, buddy, everybody had a job to do. Within four hours, they were done," said a very impressed Pastor Stewart.
