The House That Love Built

Wednesday, June 15, 2011
Here at FAS Windows and Doors we are proud supporters of the Ronald McDonald House of Central Florida.  The Ronald McDonald house has helped numerous families here in Central Florida as well as across the world!

Many may not know how the Ronald McDonald House got its start so we would like to share with you the history of the Ronald McDonald House Charity.  In 1974 when Philadelphia Eagles Fred Hill’s three year old daughter was sick with leukemia the Hill family spent many nights sleeping on hospitals benches and chairs.  The Hill’s were not alone as they watched many other families in the same situation.  Mr. Hill along with his teammates, coach and general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles raised money to support the efforts of Dr.  Audrey Evans.  Evans was head of pediatric oncology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  Eagles General Manager along with the help of Don Tuckerman local marketing for McDonalds as well as Ed Ransi regional manager created the Shamrock Shake promotion.  Funds that were raised from the promotion helped buy an old house near the hospital and provided families a place to rest while their children were receiving treatments at the hospital.

In 1974 the first Ronald McDonald House was opened and in 2010 the 300th home opened its doors.  Here in Orlando we have two Ronald McDonald houses which are located on Alden Rd. as well as Kuhl Ave.  If you or someone you know may want to help this wonderful organization you can visit their website at http://www.rmhccf.org/index.shtml.

From Our Customers

We had a bad experience with a previous door installer/retailer. Then we heard good things on the radio about FAS so we went to see them in their warehouse and we were impressed with both the product and the people. We bought two sets of French doors and had them installed. We were also able to customize our lock and glass selection, as well as the decorative treatment of the doors and it worked very well. Their sales rep was very personable. He called in response to our call to set up a time and he arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk to him. He was certainly the first contact in our home that helped convince us to try them out.

Their installation team was very good and very professional. They came out, measured, and they showed up with the doors and the doors fit, which was nice. They had the materials they needed and they cleaned up afterwards. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience. They did a great job. FAS has a higher price but there was great value. Their quality’s terrific. They did a great follow-up as well, after the work was done. They called and verified if we were satisfied with the work, up to the permit inspection. They took care of taking off the labels and so forth, which were required to be let down for the permit.
