We are half way through 2011, the economy is still tight, many homes are underwater financially, many of our neighbors are literally underwater due to flooding and many homes are completely gone, destroyed by tornados. After the American Revolution, on July 4, 1776 we declared our independence from Great Britain. Today, we are a nation of neighbors. We fought together for freedom and now we rally around those in need. Millions of volunteers are your neighbors. They belong to so many different groups, Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross and more. Be thankful for your freedom and that we can celebrate a great nation and its people. Be a good neighbor, volunteer where ever you can and make a difference. Happy 4th of July!

We are remodeling! The “On the House” website has been in need of some repairs for a while and that is now in progress and should be completed in the near future.

Foil Insulation - Does It Really Work?

The words "Radiant Barrier" are relatively new in the world of home improvement.

We bet you're wondering: Does it really work? It's a proven technology -YES it works. NASA uses it, Frito-Lay uses it in their chip bags, anyone who has a sunshield for their car windshield knows that radiant barrier foil insulation works to reflect heat. The real question is how much can be saved and is it worth the investment? The return on your investment will be energy savings and comfort. Not just in the summer but year round.

Most of us want the best bang for our home improvement dollar. Do-it-yourselfers can spend a few hundred dollars and save by installing it themselves. It offers a great return on investment and time. In the summer the barrier keeps the heat out by reflecting back out through the roof. In the winter the barrier keeps your expensive heat from escaping by trapping it below the barrier.




Serving as a valued Atlanta Habitat for Humanity in-kind donor, Gerber Plumbing Fixtures LLC announced today that it has donated water-saving fixtures and faucets valued at 5,000 dollars to Atlanta Habitat’s retail outlet, the ReStore. All proceeds from the ReStore are used to help fulfill the mission of Atlanta Habitat, which is to build affordable, green, quality homes in partnership with working families.
