I-57 Roofing Donates New Life Car Care Roof Labor | Local
MATTOON – Arthur’s I-57 Roofing, Inc. donated labor to install a new roof on the office of New Life Car Care, which provides automotive services to those in need.
New Life Director Dan Craw said the nonprofit has needed a new home for its office at 2709 Commercial Ave. He said a windstorm in the fall then damaged one side of the roof and the insurance company only paid half.
“I told (the I-57 estimator) who we were and what we were doing and understood that there was enough money for one side only and that I would have to find a way to get the other side later,” Craw said.

After the estimator spoke with his employer, Craw said I-57 decided to replace the entire roof and donate the labor. He said New Life only had to use the insurance money to buy the equipment.
“They did it in one day, they treated us very well and they did a great job,” Craw said. “I don’t know many roofing companies that would do what they did.”
