How AMDG Exterior Contracting Brought a New Roof to a Wynnewood Home
See how this community came together to help and celebrate.
After weeks of nominations and voting in the AMDG Exterior Contracting No Roof Left Behind giveaway, Kevin Jones found out the day before Thanksgiving that he’d be getting a new roof.
On December 2, AMDG owner Jason Campuzano and his workers — all volunteering their time — descended on Jones’ house and got to work. Stripping off old asphalt shingles and the original cedar roof, the crew filled a dumpster from Jack Clark and Sons, an AMDG partner for the giveaway, with debris.
Over the course of the chilly but sunny Saturday, a stream of neighbors, friends, and family of Jones came through the neighborhood. Kids jumped on a bouncing castle and snacked on Munchkins and pretzel bites, while the adults chatted and marveled at the speed of the AMDG workers.
Once the old materials were off, the workers put plywood on the roof decking and started shingling. Thanks to a generous donation from Chick-fil-A Springfield Park, the crew and the neighbors had a hearty lunch to help them refuel.
A smiling Jones snapped photos and shot video so friends and family in other states could see the project unfold. His next-door neighbors, Tom and Jennifer Comerci, who nominated Jones for the giveaway, were all smiles too as they watched their friend enjoy the moment.
Campuzano, who was born and raised in this area, loves giving back to the community that supports his business and his family. The “No Roof Left Behind” contest, which is sponsored by GAF, the number one shingle manufacturer in North America, was a natural fit for Campuzano and his company. This is the second year AMDG has given away a roof.
In addition to Chick-fil-A and Jack Clark and Sons, AMDG worked with Quality Roofing Supply on the project.
The roof-raising in Wynnewood felt like a family gathering for the AMDG workers, whose spouses and kids also stopped by.
“This event has given us the opportunity to come together as a company and give back to the community during the holiday season,” Campuzano said. “All of our employees live in the area and we care deeply about improving our community and lending a hand to our neighbors.”
AMDG has been improving homes in Delaware and Montgomery counties for more than 12 years.

As the new roof began to emerge, AMDG ‘s office coordinator, gave Jones a gift basket with a few essentials for the holidays, and had a bottle of wine for the Comercis, who walked the neighborhood with their triplets, asking their neighbors to vote for Jones.
Happy Holidays from AMDG Exterior Contracting!
