“It was quite the experience to be part of a show that has helped so many people over the last 9 years.” Larry Bedosky-Eclipse Shading Systems®

Eclipse Shading Systems®, manufacturer of motorized retractable awnings, window awnings, exterior and interior solar shades and accessories, was among a group of builders and suppliers selected to help in the construction of a home renovated on the hit show Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. The episode aired on Sunday, October 17, 2011.
The episode based in Crawford, New York, chronicled the surprise home renovation for the Korpai family. The family, dedicated to advocating for their daughter, Hailey, who was born with dwarfism, was chosen to have their lives changed with a dream renovation of their previously unsafe home. While their house used to have rooms that were unable to keep Hailey safe and secure, the Extreme Makeover:Home Edition team was challenged with the task of renovating the house to meet the specifications and safety measures that Hailey’s lifestyle requires. More importantly, they wanted a place where Hailey could have the freedom and independence to live her own life.
The Extreme Makeover:Home Edition design team had just seven days to build a brand new home for the Korpai family, one that is safe, secure and accessible for Hailey and Little People of America visitors. The Korpai family was whisked away on a Disney Cruise vacation to the Bahamas, while “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” team leader Ty Pennington, designers Jillian Harris, Ed Sanders and Paul DiMeo, and local builders Hearthstone Commercial & Residential Contracting, as well as community volunteers, built the structure.
Eclipse Shading Systems donated four exterior mounted opaque retractable shade systems on the master bedroom windows and a series of side retention screens on the enclosed outdoor Little People of America Center (LPA) created for Hailey and her friends. Both products block the sun’s harmful rays, helps protect against insects and provides an added level of security and privacy.
“When we heard Extreme Makeover: Home Edition selected a home, right in our own backyard, we immediately contacted the producers. Eclipse donated retractable solar shading products needed to make this home more comfortable for the family and improve outdoor living for the LPA Center. We enjoy making a difference, especially in our own local community,” states Larry Bedosky, Director of Marketing for Eclipse. “It was quite the experience to be part of a show that has helped so many people over the last 9 years.”
