As part of an ongoing commitment to give back to the Sacramento community, Glass West is proud to announce our involvement in a Habitat for Humanity remodel project. Glass West is contributing ten Milgard Low-E windows to a very deserving home on North Avenue in North Sacramento.
The project is progressing nicely, despite some speed bumps along the way. The original remodel plans did not call for new windows, but extensive dry rot was discovered upon removal of the home’s siding. This indicated that replacement windows were necessary after all. We are honored to assist Habitat for Humanity in this effort.
For those that are not familiar with Habitat for Humanity, they are truly a remarkable organization. Their mission is to bring “people together to build homes, communities, and hope.” And that is what they have been doing in the greater Sacramento area since 1985. In that time, they have built 137 homes in the area for low-income families. Recently expanded efforts include remodeling homes for local Veterans and those that they leave behind (such as this project).
A major emphasis made by Habitat in these remodel projects is that of energy efficiency. Not only is a great for the environment, but it lessens the burden of a high utility bill on the home. The Milgard Low-E windows that we are donating are designed specifically to improve home efficiency.
Since 1995, we have been serving Sacramento, and we plan to continue our service for years to come. Find out how you can give back to your community. Visit the Sacramento Habitat for Humanity’s website for more information on volunteer opportunities.
