North Georgia Replacement Windows and Vytex Windows Join 104.7 The Fish ‘Windows of Opportunity’ Promotion

Atlanta, GA, August 2015 – From June 1 to July 12, North Georgia Replacement Windows and Vytex Windows ran the “Windows of Opportunity” promotion on 104.7 The Fish radio station, offering listeners up to 15 free, energy-efficient windows – a $6,000 value!

Listeners were asked to submit a picture of their home, along with their personal reason for desiring new windows. We received almost 250 entries, and the station carefully narrowed them down through a detailed selection process. We were then presented with the difficult task of selecting a finalist. With so many deserving entries, you can imagine the challenge we faced. At the end of the day, it was one story of strength, perseverance and selflessness that stood out among the rest.

With that, North Georgia Replacement Windows, 104.7 The Fish, and Vytex Windows are honored and proud to announce that Mike Collins of Buford, Georgia is the winner of new windows for his home.

Mike has been battling Leukemia for over two years now, and his family’s budget for new windows has instead gone toward paying medical and other everyday expenses. Mike’s story inspired us all, and we are pleased to begin the work of installing new, energy-efficient and maintenance-free windows in his home.

We at North Georgia Replacement Windows would like to thank Vytex Windows and 104.7 The Fish for their support of the 2015 “Windows of Opportunity” promotion.

Deserving Winner Gets New Windows From North Georgia Replacement Windows

And the winner is…

Extreme Home Energy Makeover winner Jerry Watkins and wife Marsha

Last week, Jerry Watkins of Mableton, GA was notified that he was the sole winner of ‘The Extreme Home Energy Makeover’ contest being held by 104.7 FM The Fish. However, the reason why he is so deserving of such a makeover dates back a decade ago. Watkins was in a major car accident that not only left him paralyzed below the waist, but removed his body’s ability to sweat.

After a three month stay in the Shepherd Center Hospital, Watkins was in search of a house that would accommodate his new health conditions. Beyond the obvious need for wheelchair accessibility, Watkins’ body also required an energy efficient home that would regulate the temperature for him since his body no longer could.

Unfortunately, the true condition of the home he purchased was discovered after the fact. The single pane windows and AC unit leaks and repairs are some of the obstacles Watkins has been dealing with throughout the years.

Until now.

We at North Georgia Replacement Windows, along with Vytex Windows, are more than honored to be able to donate a house full of double pane, energy efficient Vytex windows for Watkins. This added insulation will not only help keep his air inside the home, putting less stress on his AC unit, but also help keep the heat out in the summer.

Although it pales in comparison to the obstacles Watkins has faced in the past- and will continue to endure- it is a pleasure for us to be able to provide some relief. We are excited to see the transformation the new windows make on his home, but more thrilled to know that these windows will help improve his living condition.
