A Penticton woman has won a roof makeover through SIS/Vista Roofing.

Regine Siemons of Penticton was chosen by the judges to be the recipient of the 2015 Extreme Roof Makeover Giveaway.

“Wow. Thank you so much, SIS Roofing, for this amazing gift. I had no idea I was even nominated,” said Siemons on winning the giveaway.

The new roof comes at a time when Siemons needed it.

“I called SIS Roofing just under a year ago when, after a long period of rain, I slipped on a puddle of water in the hallway. I said to myself, there is no way I can afford to ever fix this. What am I going to do? SIS did a great job coming over and giving me a very fair estimate, but because of life circumstances, I decided to get a friend to just come and patch it up in the meantime,” Siemons explained.

The nomination email was sent by Donna Gibney of Summerland and a friend of Siemons.

“Three years ago, Regine was suddenly diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer. This came as a shock to everyone,” the nomination letter said. “In her 15 years of service in teaching it was very rare for her to use a sick day. Regine, her children and her family have needed to make powerful life changes to support her in fighting this disease. Despite this and multiple challenges Regine has faced, she has remained hopeful, joyful, courageous and active. She is a warrior.”

Jason Holinaty, owner of SIS/Vista Roofing said he feels blessed that Siemons was the recipient of this year’s roofing giveaway.
