Building A Home To Change A Life

Partnering with Lowe’s to leave a lasting impact on a Habitat for Humanity home in Statesville, North Carolina.

Recently, Pella and Lowe’s partnered to build a home for Habitat for Humanity in North Carolina. Watch this video and read the story to find out how Pella and Lowe’s worked to make a life-altering change for a family in need.

Partnerships to Change a Community

For almost two decades, Pella has been proud to work with Lowe’s. When an opportunity to partner on a new build presented itself, the choice for windows was an easy one.

In early 2019, planning began for the Habitat for Humanity home. We provided easy-care vinyl windows and a low-maintenance fiberglass entry door. The Pella and Lowe’s teams were excited to install Pella® windows and doors from Lowe’s into a new home for a deserving family.

Building More Than Homes

We don’t just make windows and doors. We make products that help turn a house into a home. The team members that helped work on this project were proud to install Pella windows and doors with long-lasting beauty and performance alongside the Lowe’s team members.

When Brian Van Haaften, Sr. Account Manager at Pella, thought about how much they impacted the lives of everyone involved in this project, he realized that “this is our opportunity to pay it forward.”

Our team members enjoyed building bonds across organizations and the opportunity to live out Habitat for Humanity’s values. Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity was fulfilling work and we enjoyed helping families build a better life.

Installation Day

On the day of installation, we broke into small groups and installed the windows. This included using Pella SmartFlash tape, leveling, shimming, fastening and applying foam sealant. Pella sales representatives were on hand to provide installation training and supervise the groups as they worked.

While working on this project, many of our team members had a recurring thought – it’s not just a window, it’s part of someone’s home. This mindset carries through to the work that we complete every day. We have a passion to give back to the communities where we live and work, and this project has allowed Pella and Lowe’s to leave a lasting impact.

Pella Products Used for This Project

Pella® 250 Series windows and Pella® fiberglass entry doors from Lowe’s were used in this project. They provide premium performance, quality and aesthetic value to the home that will last for years to come.
