CertainTeed Employees Roll Up Their Sleeves to Assist Homes for Our Troops

Posted on

CertainTeed Corporation, along with employees from its Kansas City, Kansas, insulation plant and professional partners are rolling up their sleeves to assist Homes for Our Troops (HFOT). HFOT is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes for severely injured Veterans. The latest team effort shows support and appreciation for a local Lee’s Summit, Missouri Veteran.
 
CertainTeed offers a portfolio of roofing, insulation, drywall, siding, housewrap and trim for builds across the U.S. CertainTeed’s involvement also extends to employees actively participating in HFOT local community events, as well as builder, distributor, and company contractor partners who assist with product delivery and installation.
 
Due to the proximity to the company’s insulation manufacturing facility in Kansas City, Kansas, local CertainTeed employees are able to do even more for Marine Sgt. Dustin Johns, taking action along with more than 150 people to assist with landscaping and other exterior beautification details during Volunteer Day. Several supporters, including long-time Kansas builder and HFOT partner Sallee Homes of Lee’s Summit, was on hand when the home was officially presented to the Johns family during the formal Key Ceremony.
 
A technician with the 2nd Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Company, Sgt. Johns was clearing an area of explosive hazards in Sangin Valley, Afghanistan on November 12, 2011 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). The blast resulted in the amputation of both legs and two fingers on his right hand.
 
He was fitted with prosthetics for both legs, but learning to walk again is only one challenge of day-to-day life. Sgt. Johns’ mortgage-free home provided by HFOT is specially designed to accommodate his needs and is a crucial step in helping his family rebuild their lives.
 
“When we heard about Homes for Our Troops building a home so near our largest insulation manufacturing facility, our staff, both at the corporate and local level, were excited at the chance to do more than usual for the local hero,” said Greg Silvestri, president of CertainTeed Insulation. “Everyone who has touched this project, from our builder, distributor and contractor partners to the employees at the plant to our company sales territory managers, have expressed their thankfulness for being able to step in, and eagerness to participate in another build when the opportunity presents itself.”
 
In conjunction with CertainTeed, Insulate America has participated in a number of builds since becoming involved with HFOT in the past few years.
 
“We do charitable work within the communities that we serve. Whether that’s a check, or with some hands on work. It’s rewarding when you come to the home that is being built for one of our Veterans to see the impact and the community coming together,” said David Beam, president of Insulate America. “It’s a small token of appreciation for their sacrifice and our freedom.”

This was the first time A+ Insulation, an Insulate America member contractor from Edwardsville, Kansas, provided installation services for a HFOT build.

“I really had no idea the lengths Homes for Our Troops goes through to personally customize each home to benefit the life of each deserving Veteran. It’s amazing,” said Mike O’Hara, president of A+ Insulation. “And CertainTeed Sales Territory Manager John Larkin was wonderful to work with, making it easy to complete the insulation installation on schedule.”
 
Since its founding in 2004, HFOT has built more than 220 mortgage-free, specially adapted energy-efficient homes for Veterans severely injured in combat after September 11, 2001. Each four-bedroom, two-bath home is Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, complete with roll-in showers, roll-under cooktops and sinks, and other standard accessibility items. Construction of a home takes six to seven months, with the cost of each build averaging $430,000.

  16. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  17. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
