After Sunday’s storm wreaked havoc on homes across the valley, the want for repairs turned into a need.

“It’s a Christmas miracle” said Matthew Staus. For years, all he and is wife ever wanted was a new roof.

“There was water coming in from the ceiling.” says Staus’ wife Jennifer.

FOX40 asked contractor Clint Garrett what people can do to prevent getting a new roof, “Buy a new house,” Garrett joked.

But if that’s not an option, Garrett suggests you have to take care of your roof.

“Keep the roof clean, remove leaves and debris from the roof as often as you can, because it only lasts 30 years.”
Garrett says, and the better you take care of it, the longer it will last.

For Staus and his wife, the roof is beyond repair. That’s when Zelma Faus stepped in.

“My 90-year-old grandma has given us a new roof for Christmas.” Jennifer said. “I love you so much, grandma.”
