Centra Cares 2018 Home Renovation Contest

Centra Cares

Now is your chance to nominate a family for the Centra Cares Home Renovation Contest!

We are accepting nominations from May 1st-May 31st 2018. It's time to give away a full house of windows to a family in need, but we need your help to nominate a deserving family.

Last year, we had an overwhelming response of entries coming from all over BC, and we want to do it all over again! The opportunity to make a difference in the health, safety, and lives of a deserving family is here.

We know that home renovations can be expensive, so the Centra Cares Foundation is here to provide energy-efficient windows valued up to $15,000. When people think of home renovations they often look to the interior. A lot of times people neglect some of the most significant pieces to a home renovation project, the windows. They are more than just an aesthetic upgrade, windows provide health, safety and energy-saving improvements.  We realize that not everyone can afford much-needed home window renovations so we want to help a family in need.

Help a family be healthy:

Windows help keep the air flowing into and out of the house.  Without windows that can properly open and close, it is difficult to let fresh air in to dry out the home and let the condensation escape. This is important to stop mould from forming.  This is also true in the summer where air conditioning can dry out the air.

Help a family be safe:

Most windows, especially older ones, do not have proper safety or do not have strong enough locks to keep a determined burglar out. Centra windows are designed with multipoint or multiple security features to ensure a safe and secure home.

Help a family save energy:

Windows and doors can account for up to 40% of a home’s energy loss and can save a family up to 8% on their energy bills*. Combine this with knowledgeable Centra installers, the well-deserving family can reduce their energy costs and continue to reap the savings.

“We were one of the fortunate families to win the Centra Cares Home Window Renovation contest last year. The day they showed up to replace our windows, we felt like we had won the Publishers Clearing House lottery. There was a frenzy of people in our quiet little cul-de-sac and they all introduced themselves with the biggest of smiles and the pure joy they showed during the install is a memory I will cherish for a life time. This company does not just give back, they truly change lives. They changed our lives! “
