On the destroyed roofs, it will provide people with Tondach roofing with an extraordinary price reduction of 80 percent from this year's price list. For the construction of new houses after demolition, the company will give a discount on the roof system and a 60% discount from this year's prices for Porotherm bricks. It is necessary to send an e-mail with a request for support to the address, including a photo of the destroyed roof or house, demolition area, confirmation from the municipal authority in case of repair without demolition, state the address and an estimate of the required amount of material. Help can also be obtained via the web.
