Kinzler Construction Services was pleased to participate in the first-ever “blitz build” for Waterloo-based Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity. Kinzler joined with other area contractors, suppliers and builders in June, who successfully completed a home in record time – just six days! It’s a process that normally takes as long as six months.

Kinzler Construction Services made a donation for the home’s insulation and volunteered a crew to install it. The donations from Kinzler and others helped to make the home affordable for the Kay Reh family. Kay Reh & Su Meh and their four children are very grateful to have secure safe, affordable, and decent shelter! Several years ago they arrived in Atlanta, Georgia from a Burmese refugee camp and have been in Waterloo for the past four years.

“We are pleased to be able to participate in this Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build,” said Tanner Kinzler, President and CEO of Kinzler Construction Services. “Part of our core focus at Kinzler is to serve others, build relationships and enrich lives. By working together, we are making a difference in the lives of those in the Cedar Valley.”

The Kay Reh-Su Meh home is the 132nd Habitat home to be completed in an area that includes Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Waverly, Evansdale, Parkersburg, La Porte City and Hudson, since 1991.

Iowa-based Kinzler Construction Services is a leading provider of construction supplies and services to commercial, residential and agricultural builders and homeowners. Kinzler has locations in Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Ames and Ankeny, and in Minnesota and Texas.

Project Profile: Cedar Falls Apartment

Dahlstrom Real Estate needed a flooring solution for their new 8-unit apartment in Cedar Falls, IA, which would satisfy fire rating requirements and reduce sound between units. They hired Kinzler Construction Services to install Levelrock 2500 gypsum concrete underlayment. Gypsum concrete is a building material used as a floor underlayment in wood-frame and concrete construction for fire ratings, sound reduction, radiant heating, and floor leveling.

Kinzler crews installed 1 ½” Levelrock 2500 gypsum concrete underlayment over 2-1/2″ poly-styrene. The substrate was precast floor and wood subfloor on the 2nd and 3rd floor.
