Power Home Remodeling is an American corporation headquartered in Chester, Pennsylvania that provides services predominantly related to energy and cost-saving exterior remodeling products such as replacement windows, roofing and vinyl siding.[1]

Power Home Remodeling is a privately held company with 16 business locations serving Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, Virginia, and Florida.[2]

Overview[edit]

Power Home Remodeling was founded in 1992 and experienced rapid growth in the last 6 years under the tenure of Corey Schiller and Asher Raphael, the company's current co-CEOs.[3][4] In 2018, Qualified Remodeler listed Power as the largest residential re-roofer and the third largest home remodeling firm in the United States.[5][6] In the last nine years, Power has grown from $100 million to $700 million in annual revenue.[7]

Power is ranked consistently as one of the best places to work, particularly for millennials, on the regional, state, and national levels with its CEOs being named in top rankings as well.[8] Most recently, Co-CEOs Corey Schiller and Asher Raphael were ranked on Glassdoor’s 2019 Top CEOs list for the fifth consecutive year solely based on employee reviews.[9] Power holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau [10] and has won numerous customer service awards, like the Angie’s List Super Service Award (472 time winner as of 2018) solely based on Power’s customer reviews..[11]

Power Veterans Initiative[edit]

Power Veterans Initiative (PVI) is an independent department within Power that is dedicated to helping veterans establish careers after the military.[12] Through one-on-one mentorship and a robust cultural support structure, PVI works to recruit and integrate veterans into Power’s core business operations. As of 2019, 13% of all new hires at Power and 8% of its workforce (6% increase since 2016) are military veterans and veteran spouses.[13] In addition to expanding Power's veteran hires, PVI works with similar veteran empowerment driven programs across the country to educate veterans about the resources and opportunities available to them. While not a charitable endeavor, PVI's ultimate goal is to create communities in the civilian world that allow veterans to “redefine the sense of purpose that [they] had in the military".[13] PVI is led by Michael Hansen, its founder and a US Marine who served in the Marine Corps Intelligence Community. Michael completed multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, receiving a combat promotion to Sergeant.[12] He has also been featured in the Washington Post and awarded Influencer of the Year for his work with veterans in the business sector. PVI operates on an independent budget of approximately $2.25 million - $2.5 million for staffing and support.[13]

Power Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Initiative[edit]

Power’s Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Initiative was established in 2017 with the mission of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace for Power employees. The Initiative includes an annual Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Summit in which the top performers and leaders of the business unite for a 2-day event featuring guest speakers, thought-provoking dialogue, and raising awareness of diversity and inclusion issues. In 2018, the Initiative launched a summer internship program for Chester-area high school students titled Power NextGen (PNG). PNG awards gifted students the opportunity to gain business skills and experience in a safe, educational, and uplifting environment. In 2018, Power also established a Volunteer Time Off (VTO) policy in an effort to empower employees to contribute their time and efforts towards local community causes.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation[edit]

Since 2011, Power has worked to support Alexandra "Alex" Scott's legacy through its involvement with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), the charitable organization Alex founded prior to her death at age 8 from neuroblastoma (a brain cancer) with the goal to help cure childhood cancer.[14][15] Each year during the month of June, Power hosts company wide fundraising events that have raised over $3 million for ALSF in the last 8 years and holds educational panels with pediatric cancer warriors and their parents to humanized the battle these children and their families face.[14] Additionally, Power has tried to increase public awareness for ALSF and the dearth of public funding that goes toward pediatric cancer research with social media campaigns like the #istandwithalex challenge (2017) and the #everydollarcures (2018) and #smileforalexs (2019).[14][16][17][18] In 2019, Power’s monthly fundraising goal of $750,000 was met in the first day of the campaign.

Notable Marketing Campaigns[edit]

In February 2018, Power caught the media's attention for its 'three billboards' campaign just outside of Cleveland, Ohio and for creating a national dialogue with the viral #phillywantslebron hashtag in an attempt to entice LeBron James to come over to the Philadelphia 76ers.[19]
