Habitat for Humanity homes require exterior cladding that meets high performance standards and keep costs to a minimum. As the eighth largest homebuilder in the United States, its affiliates count on vinyl siding for its long-lasting attractiveness, as well as to help make home ownership a reality for families in need.
From June 4 – 8, 2012, as part of Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz, local builders and volunteers set out to build 200 homes in an effort to reaffirm the organization’s commitment to create “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.” The Vinyl Siding Institute had a contributing role in this five-day philanthropic event that sought to build, renovate and repair homes across the United States.
Several VSI member companies donated vinyl siding and accessories to builds in Massachusetts, Tennessee, Ohio, and Indiana, giving homeowers beautiful low maintenance exteriors.
Since 1995, the vinyl siding industry has donated more than $2.5 million in vinyl siding and accessories for more than 1,000 Habitat homes, including projects featured during the 2012 Builder Blitz. VSI manufacturer members not only donate to blitz builds and Jimmy Carter Work Projects (JCWP), they also donate to local Habitat affiliates.
