CertainTeed donates insulation for Homes For Heroes

Mississauga, Ontario (2019) – CertainTeed Canada is proud to be working with Darren Resch and the insulation experts of Total-R Inc. to provide the insulation that the Homes For Heroes Foundation needs to build a village of tiny homes for Calgary’s homeless military veterans.  

The Homes For Heroes Foundation is a program that assists with the re-integration of military veterans into civilian life through affordable housing and a support structure.

Marlon Thompson, Marketing Product Manager for CertainTeed Insulation Canada, says, “The Homes for Heroes project is a significant undertaking, one that CertainTeed is pleased to be able to support.  The company believes it is important to give back to our communities and to cooperate with our business partners to help facilitate important initiatives like the Homes For Heroes village.”

CertainTeed R40 and R24 Sustainable Insulation will be installed in the attic and walls of each of the homes. Sustainable Batt Insulation acts as both thermal and acoustical insulation and is ideal for floors, walls and ceilings. All CertainTeed insulation products improve building energy efficiency, helping to lower energy costs throughout the life of the structure.

CertainTeed acknowledged both the importance of the cause as well as its decade long relationship with Total-R. The company’s responsiveness and generosity was truly impressive.”
