PELLA, IA – April 14, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The Sun., April 17, episode of ABC television network’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” (EMHE) will include energy-efficient Pella windows and doors donated by Pella Windows & Doors. The episode will air at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central on ABC-TV.
The makeover outside Wichita, Kan., marks the 27th appearance of Pella products to help complete the new home construction for a deserving family featured in the series. The new home features energy-efficient Pella® windows and patio doors with a black EnduraClad® protective exterior finish, made in Carroll and Pella, Iowa. In addition, Pella Impervia® fiberglass windows made in Murray, Ky., are featured in one of the home’s bathrooms.
Pella Windows & Doors representatives from Wichita and Hutchinson, Kan., together with Pella Certified Contractor(SM) (PCC) Honey Do Homes of Wichita volunteered to complete installation.
“For the eighth consecutive year, Pella was pleased to again partner with ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ to create better views for this deserving family,” said Kathy Krafka Harkema, Pella Corporation spokesperson. “Pella proudly worked with Bob Cook Homes in creating the highly-accessible home that will help make life easier for the family.”
Each episode features a race against time on a project that would normally take at least four months to achieve, involving designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to build an entire house plus the exterior and landscaping.
