Philadelphia Remodeling Company, Global Home Improvement, Donates Roof Replacement for Deserving Wilmington Families During Taping of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'

Share Article

Sometimes roofers in Philadelphia can get a bad reputation, but Global Home Improvement President Paul Kazlov does not run the average roofing company. In early February, Global Home Improvement sent 14 volunteers from their company to assist in the renovations of a Wilmington, Delaware neighborhood during the taping of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'. The project started on February 5(th) and ended a week later on February 12(th) when the Latif family and Rose Chapman, their next door neighbor and "adopted grandmother", returned from a vacation at Walt Disney World in Orlando.

They wanted to lend a helping hand to the whole neighborhood, so we replaced 11 porch roofs across the street from the Latif family's house in one day.

    While they were gone, crews were working around the clock to clean-up and repair the neighborhood on South Clayton Street and rebuild the homes of the Latif family and Rose Chapman. Donating their time and materials for the project was never a question for Global Home Improvement. Mr. Kazlov says, "We contacted 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' to help in any way that we could." He explains, "They wanted to lend a helping hand to the whole neighborhood, so we replaced 11 porch roofs across the street from the Latif family's house in one day."

The team from Global Home Improvement even trained Paige Hemmis, accomplished carpenter and part of the design team, how to use a nail gun. "Paige and the design team had such great energy during the whole project and that energy created a great atmosphere for the hundreds of volunteers," said Kazlov.
