CertainTeed gives materials to military charity
CertainTeed Corp. is providing items to Homes for Our Troops, a charity that helps veterans rebuild their lives.
The company, which also manufactures duct board and other HVAC construction products, is donating its roofing, insulation and gypsum wallboard to 40 homes that will be provided to severely injured military members at no charge.
The one-story homes have open floor plans and are designed to go beyond the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act, officials said. Lift systems, voice controls and keyless entry are among the standard features.
"Having corporate partners like CertainTeed is essential to our mission of helping our nation's most severely injured veterans regain their freedom and independence through the gift of a new home," said Bill Ivey, executive director at Homes for Our Troops. "It's an honor to help these heroes rebuild their lives, and CertainTeed's involvement ensures our homes are built using only the best materials and finest craftsmanship available, and will stand the test of time."
