PICO RIVERA, Calif. (KABC) -- U.S. Army Veteran Rose Smith of Pico Rivera now has a new roof over her head.

The much-needed new roof comes courtesy of the Owens Corning "Roof Deployment Project," which is the company's way of showing appreciation for U.S. veterans.

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Los Angeles, Owens Corning donated the materials.

Also, local company La Rocque Better Roofs donated the labor and got it done.

"The roof came out great, they did an outstanding job. They had different crews last week, and every crew that came out they were amazing and did a wonderful job, and I'm so pleased and thankful," Smith said.

It's good timing too, with some rain in the forecast!

Since the project started, Owens Corning has provided more than 200 military members and veterans with new roofs.
