A homeless Vietnam veteran’s dream to have a warm, safe place to stay is closer to reality thanks, in part, to a generous donation from Kinzler Construction Services located in Tyler, TX (formerly Garland & Jones Insulation.)
Ben Cordero has had a hard life from the start. He was left on the steps of an orphanage at age four and was moved around to different foster families but never adopted. He later joined the Navy and fought in Vietnam. Since then, Ben has suffered with severe PSTD. Due to the severity of his PSTD, Ben had trouble keeping jobs long-term and became homeless, living in a run-down, cold and leaky RV.
Kinzler Construction Services partnered with the non-profit organization “The King’s Rein,” to build Ben a new place to live through their Veterans Home Program. Kinzler donated all of the product and labor expenses to insulate a cabin with energy-efficient spray foam.
“Kinzler’s core focus is to serve others, build relationships and enrich lives,” said Scott Wamack, General Manager of Kinzler’s Tyler, TX operation. “It’s not something folks at Kinzler Construction Services just say – this is a great example of how we actually live that out in the work that we do.”

Curtis Sturgill, National Sales Manager for High-R Metal Building Insulation, a patented product owned and offered by Kinzler Construction Services, published an article titled “Retrofit Insulation, What Should You Know?” on Metal Construction News’ website in September.
Below are some key points and several quotes from Curtis Sturgill that appear in the article.
“No matter what type of insulation system you decide to use when retrofitting your structure, if it is not properly air sealed you might as well light your wallet on fire.”
2. Cavity Insulation:
“Attempting to get a fiberglass batt to fit in an existing cavity with no air pockets for condensation to occur is like finding a needle in a haystack.”
3. Retrofit Thermal Blocks?
“With an existing building it is next to impossible to add a thermal block unless you address the topside of the roof in some manner.”
4. Return on Investment
“There is a lot to be said for material R-values and installed R-values, a big misunderstanding by a lot of consumers and even some in our industry.”
5. Choosing the Right Company
“With the hassle of working around existing equipment and mechanical units, limiting downtime or slowed production of your employees, it is just as important to choose the right company as it is to find the right product.”
