GCP Applied Technologies, a global provider of construction products technologies, has donated roofing and flooring products to Habitat for Humanity. The construction materials will support the repair, rebuilding, and new construction of homes for families impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

“The hurricanes of 2017 have caused unprecedented devastation, forcing thousands of people out of their damaged homes,” said Craig Merrill, GCP’s Vice President, Global Marketing.

“We are pleased to assist Habitat for Humanity in its long-term hurricane recovery initiative, providing needed roofing underlayments and flooring tools to repair and rebuild homes in Florida and Texas. Our eyes are on Puerto Rico as Habitat continues to assess the situation there and determine construction plans.”

Habitat for Humanity has set an initial goal of helping more than 6000 families across regions impacted by the hurricanes.

In Florida, where damage to roofing was expensive, GCP has donated its roof underlaying materials, Grace Ice & Water Shield and Tri-Flex XT. Meanwhile in Texas, where flooding was extensive, the company has donated flowing tools to help replace flood-damaged floors.

Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, GCP provides construction products technologies, including additives for cement and concrete, as well as waterproofing proofing and other speciality systems.
