Habitat For Humanity Of Greater Chattanooga's Home Builders Blitz Kicks Off Monday

Monday, September 9, 2019

The sounds of hammers, saws and excited workers will be filling the air as this week’s Builders’ Blitz takes place to complete the home for the Borngne family at 404 W. 35th Street in Chattanooga.

This year, Pratt Home Builders partnered with Habitat to sponsor the build as well as providing their leadership and expertise on the project.

Cheryl Moore, director of marketing for Pratt Home Builders said, “We are blessed to work with families from around the region to build the home of their dreams. Working together, we create first homes to forever homes. Because of this, we are honored to partner with Habitat in creating a home that we hope will serve the Borngnes both now and in the future. We are excited to have so many partners in the construction industry join us in this build.”

The following vendors, subcontractors and partners have helped make this home possible through donating materials, supplies, time and labor to the project: Airsystems Unlimited; Cornerstone Surveying; Cabinet Creations; Carrier Enterprise; Chattanooga Gutter; Chavez Framing & Construction; Donald Horvatt's Custom Woodworking; Double Jaimes, Inc.; EnviroGuard; Ferguson Enterprise; Fleming Carpet Distributing; Foamtech; General Shale Brick; Groundscape Concepts; HomeTeam Inspection Service; Joe Heaton; J & S Electrical Contractors, Inc.; J & B Concrete; L & W Supply; Lansing Building Product, Inc.; M C Plumbing; Matthew W. Norton; Metro Roofing Supply; Quality Pro Power Washing; Robin Wolfe; Rugby Architectural Building Products; S. Roofing, Inc.; Sequatchie Concrete Service; Sandra Merlo-Rosas; Samuel Hernandez Cruz; Builders First Source; The Lighting Gallery; Therm-Con; Tinoco's Drywall, Inc.; and Vulcan Construction Materials.

Throughout the week nationwide, local builders and suppliers provide labor, funding and materials to help hundreds of families build strength, stability and self-reliance through improved shelter. Chattanooga ranks in the top 12% in income inequality in the country and is experiencing home prices rising at nearly double the rate of the national average, making the stability that safe, decent housing provides a family out of reach for many. Home Builders Blitz allows professional builders and suppliers to use their expertise and skills to align with Habitat to address affordable housing in their community.
