ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Guardian Roofing has become a guardian angel for West Seattle resident Carol Williams.

Employees from the company spent the weekend ripping out her old roof, replacing rotten boards and adding new shingles and gutters – all without charging Williams a penny.

She explained that her roof had been falling apart for the past five years. “Black mold was growing in the bathroom,” she said. “There were leaks all over the kitchen, leaks by the fireplace. Every year, it got worse and worse.”

The 76-year old disabled widow has been raising her 16-year-old grandson for the last six years on only her social security and small pension.

A new roof was something she desperately needed -- but was simply not in her budget.

Williams said estimates for a new roof ran about $18,000.
