Disaster could strike anytime. In a blink of an eye, it could happen to anyone and anywhere. It can be financially, with our loved ones, etc. But such experiences can be used as a way to push yourself and make it an inspiration to move on with your life. I have a friend named Jake, we both live in Toronto, Canada and this is his story.
Something happened in his life. He became homeless for how many months because he couldn’t afford a basic home with his salary. Life was hard for him, but he was helped. The Canadian Red Cross in Toronto Region assisted Jake with his basic need for shelter. He thought everything was hopeless, but he didn’t give up. He tried to look for a job again, made some connections and worked really hard. During this time, I wasn’t in Canada, I was studying in the United States.
He met a lady named Lisa and she had a Toronto roofing business. She was looking for people who could work for her, but she needed individuals who already have the knowledge and experience. He told her that he was willing to learn and he will do everything to succeed and to work for her. She was one of the Red Cross volunteers and was very kind to offer him a scholarship for him to take the roofing inspection courses.
After he finished the courses and got his certification, she hired him and became one of her best roofers in the company. He got a decent job and pay, and eventually found a way to buy his own house. Being part of the roofing team, he was able to appreciate the importance of the roof. This is the part of the house that is usually neglected because people would often assume that it’s still okay.
Keeping the roof in good condition is really important. Without it, no one could live in the house. You could become homeless too. It shields us from too much heat and keeps us warm when it’s too cold outside. He always sees to it that the roof of his house is well-maintained. He checks the gutters from time to time and sees if the structure is still strong enough to withstand different weather conditions.
Now I am back here in Toronto and I was inspired by his story. I am so proud of my friend seeing him coping up with life and was able to move on from scratch. Lisa’s company has already shut down because she joined our creator 6 months ago. But now, Jake is part of a new roofers Toronto team, check www.authorityroofing.ca to know more about the new company he is working for.
I just had my roof checked last week and I can tell that Jake and his team are really good, they have great quality service and equipment. So whenever you have concerns with the roof of your house, whether it’s installation or repair, call and hire only the best people who are knowledgeable and who are well-experienced to handle them.
