NUDURA Lends a Hand to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"

BARRIE, ON--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - When it comes to insulated concrete forms, NUDURA knows their stuff. That being said, it made perfect sense when "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" tapped NUDURA to assist with their latest renovation. NUDURA's insulated concrete house forms were used for two projects for the show's February 14th episode.

Thousands of volunteers and countless donations helped to make the home makeover possible. Two separate projects were completed using NUDURA's insulated concrete forms home construction. The Tripp family home and The Fishing School were each renovated in only the way that "Extreme Makeover" can.

The Tripp family currently runs a bus ministry for their local church. About 40 kids each week board the bus for activities lead by Nikema and Tamara Tripp. Their church cannot afford to fund the bus, so the Tripps willingly pay out of their own generous pockets. They sacrifice the repairs that their own home needs to help out others in their neighborhood. Nikema and Tamara live with their three sons in a 900 square foot, two bedroom, one bathroom house. While they love being able to help out others in need, their own home is suffering. It's no wonder why "Extreme Makeover" came to their rescue.

The Fishing School is a youth and family support organization run by Tom Lewis, which has reached over 2,500 students and their parents in the District of Columbia. The school is designed to teach students about good citizenship, saying no to drugs and safety. Lewis has dedicated himself to helping students that live in poverty and desperation. The building the school is housed in was in dire need of an "Extreme Makeover."

NUDURA is proud to be able to help, with the installation of insulated concrete forms, by making the Tripp family home and The Fishing School thrive again. These people have spent their lives putting the well-being of others ahead of themselves. Renovating their properties is one of the best ways to show them how thankful we all are. These two projects were quite a success, thanks to the hard work of everyone involved. Watch the show on February 14th to see the finished results.
