Stan's Efforts in the Community
Restoring Homes with Habitat for Humanity
At Stan’s, we believe that everyone in our company should find the time or resources to give back to the community. It’s part of being a good neighbor.
Five years ago when Stan retired from our company, he started volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. He told us how satisfying it felt to work toward completing a project that would have a tangible effect on the lives of people in our own community.
Habitat for Humanity has built over 400,000 houses around the world since 1976, in an effort to provide affordable, decent housing for those in need. The families who will live in the houses also contribute their time to build their home and the homes of others, and they qualify for no-interest mortgages.
Today, Stan’s Roofing & Siding has joined our manufacturing partner GAF in supporting Habitat. GAF donates the material along with an enhanced manufacturer’s warranty and Stan’s takes care of the labor. In May 2011, we performed our first roof installation with Habitat on a home in Park Forest, Illinois. We are currently making preparations to install a second roof later this year.
We’re also committed to being environmentally sensitive when on the job or in the office.
Whenever possible, we use a dumpster company at our jobsites that recycles roofing tear-offs for use in roadways.
Our office recycling program includes shredding of all old paperwork and recycling it, using recycled paper for all of our printing needs, and recycling old ink cartridges.
We also have installed solar tubes and skylights to bring in more natural light and reduce our dependency on electricity.
Everyone can do their part in finding ways to be more eco-friendly!
