Habitat For Humanity of Long Island’s Man of the Year donates roof for Riverhead home

Thanks to a donation from a philanthropic business owner, Riverhead’s latest Habitat for Humanity of Long Island home received a free roof.

A construction crew from King Quality Construction, a contractor based in Bohemia, spent all day Wednesday installing the roof atop 18 Oak Drive in Riverhead. Some of the materials were donated through GAF Roofing and ABC Building Supply, while King Quality provided the rest, as well as the labor, as part of its charitable initiative, King Quality Cares. The contractor previously donated roofs to five other Habitat builds, and installed a roof, plus windows and siding on a sixth house.

King Quality’s founder and CEO, Jeff Brett, said his company has committed to the same arrangement for all Habitat For Humanity of Long Island builds this year.

“We have the support to keep this going next year as well,” Mr. Brett said Wednesday at the Riverhead job site. “We want to get more involved.”

Habitat For Humanity of Long Island named Mr. Brett its 2023 Man of the Year for not only helping them build several homes, but also gifting a $50,000 grant to produce a Habitat For Humanity of Long Island commercial, which aired on News 12. Mr. Brett hopes the commercial and other outreach efforts will inspire more business owners to partner with Habitat For Humanity of Long Island.

“It changes a family’s whole life, it’s an amazing program,” Mr. Brett said of getting involved with Habitat. “With this King Quality Cares thing, it’s not just about what King Quality can do. We want to get more business owners involved with Habitat. It will help all of Long Island. The more people that own a home, the more people that will help businesses back.”
