We greatly value the role that Habitat for Humanity plays in our communities and are happy to help make this home more energy efficient and affordable for the long-term.
Rutland, VT (Vocus) July 7, 2010
bpENNOVATIONS, an innovator of new pioneering products which address new design concepts as well as past construction challenges, is pleased to announce its recent donation of its Aerix™ Roof Ventilation System to the Bennington Area Habitat for Humanity’s Bennington, Vermont project. The project is currently under construction.
Richard Malley, President of the Bennington Area Habitat for Humanity Affiliate, announced in April of this year that the affiliate’s next home will be built on Silver Street in Bennington. This home, including the price of the land, will cost close to $150,000. Skilled and unskilled volunteers help make the home affordable by contributing their time to eliminate almost all labor costs. The affiliate will continue to seek funds throughout the summer from individuals and area businesses to cover expenses.
Kirk Moore, CEO of bpEnnovations, said that his company was glad to be contributing the Aerix Roof Ventilation System to the Silver Street project. “We greatly value the role that Habitat for Humanity plays in our communities and are happy to help make this home more energy efficient and affordable for the long-term.”
Malley said, “I am most grateful to bpEnnovations for donating the Aerix Roof Ventilation System. Our goal is to build homes that will be affordable and easy for our homeowners to maintain for many years. We are excited to have the opportunity to try the Aerix Roof Ventilation system and hope our experience with the system will help other area homeowners to make good decisions about materials to use in their homes.”
Installer, Jason Hanna added, “Aerix made a usually dreaded chore of installing blocks and baffles into a quick and simple process. Just drop in the panels and staple. Done.”
Aerix is a roof ventilation system that provides a cost-effective solution to a very common construction problem related to roof insulation and ventilation. Developed by Kirk T. Moore, AIA, LEED AP, Principal Architect of BMA Architects & Planners, Aerix is ideal for all sloped roofs and for all insulation types that provides an insulation baffle and a vented channel that protects the insulation and greatly reduces ice dams, creates proper airflow and ventilation, reduces energy costs and is simple to install.
bpENNOVATIONS is a Rutland, Vermont-based company with offices in Rutland and Bennington Vermont. AERIX is exclusively distributed by industry leader Parksite, servicing the building industry as a wholesale distributor offering a wide range of exterior and interior building materials.
