Season six of the Emmy Award-winning show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is in full swing. Ty Pennington and his crew have completed two builds already and have more in the works. Water Out contractors have worked with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on dozens of projects and we have commitments from several more Water Out contractors for this season.

The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team is joined by builders, roofers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters, dry wall installers, designers, landscapers and countless other volunteers to completely renovate the home, sometimes even knock it down and start over again, in just seven days. A project this size would normally take four months. All of the materials and services are donated.

So far this year four Water Out locations have donated their time and services for builds in Maryland and Ohio. Water Out Coastal and C&C Complete Services joined forces for the build in Poolesville, MD. Water Out of Canton/ Mr. Rapid and Water Out of Cincinnati/ Widmer’s partnered for the build in West Chester, OH.

Once the drywall is installed in the home the Water Out trailers are used to accelerate drying the mud and any other construction materials and reducing the amount of time between drywall installation and painting. The trailers have been used on several projects to dry frames which got wet due to weather and even for temporary heating. Drying the construction materials help keep the crews on schedule for the hectic 7 day build.
