MALVERN, PA — For the past 14 years, Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) has been building and donating specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans in the hopes they can rebuild their lives by making their daily home life effortless and more enjoyable – and CertainTeed has been a large part of those efforts.
As a leading North American building products manufacturer, CertainTeed has been a dedicated partner of HFOT by donating an extensive portfolio of products to approximately 120 homes of the more than 250 completed by the HFOT initiative. CertainTeed’s involvement has evolved over time from donating various building products to a more formal partnership over the past five years, being an exclusive provider of roofing, insulation, drywall and siding/outdoor living products. Additionally, CertainTeed’s involvement with this top-rated charity, based on the rating of Charity Navigator, has included many CertainTeed employees who actively participate in HFOT community build events.
“We’re excited to extend our support and continue our partnership with Homes For Our Troops by donating our innovative products to help build specially adapted custom homes for post-9/11 Veterans and their families,” said Mark Rayfield, CEO of CertainTeed. “It’s an honor to serve our community and pay it forward to the Servicemembers and Veterans that help keep our nation safe.”
CertainTeed is proud to continue its commitment to provide products to the approximately 30 specially adapted custom homes built annually for post-9/11 Veterans. With the breadth and depth of products CertainTeed donates to the HFOT initiative, Veterans will have access to a variety of innovative and reliable options to seamlessly coordinate a home tailored to their personal taste. Each home is engineered to provide complete comfort to the Veteran, going beyond ADA compliance.
In honor of Military Appreciation Month, representatives from Homes For Our Troops visited CertainTeed’s headquarters to celebrate the commitment and to share their mission with CertainTeed employees. They also toured CertainTeed’s building, which is a “living laboratory” in commercial building design focused on sustainability and comfort.
“We are incredibly grateful to have CertainTeed as a national partner,” said Bill Ivey, Executive Director of Homes For Our Troops. “Over the years, their exceptional support in product and in-kind donations has exceeded $1.6 million and has greatly accelerated our mission of building and donating specially adapted custom homes to severely injured post-9/11 Veterans. We are looking forward to continuing to work with CertainTeed and its great employees.”
