COLUMBUS, OH, MARCH 27, 2009:  Jimmie and Janet Moore had forgotten they had entered the 2008 Sweepstakes offered by one of Ohio’s largest home remodeling companies.

They had entered at a local Grossman’s early in the year then continued with their lives enjoying their family of two sons and daughter. It was a shock to the couple who lives outside of Grove City, Ohio when the announcement was made that they had won the grand prize.

“I was surprised, cause actually we forgot about it,” said Janet Moore. “I’m excited to get it.”

The product choices for the Home Makeover sweepstakes included a whole-house of window replacements,  a one-day bath or shower system, siding for their home, or leaf and debris free gutter system.  Janet was concerned about her husband being on a ladder on their 2 story home when she chose the leaf and debris free gutter system for their 100 year old home.

“A 71-year-old, gray-haired man should not be up there cleaning out the gutters,” grinned Janet.

Color Choice was the biggest decision that the Moore’s had to make. Improveit! offers a wide selection of colors and accessories,  they chose a complementing color that matched their existing vinyl siding. Recently celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, they reflected on the past and realized they hadn’t won any prizes of value other than a television set 45 years ago. 2008 was the 11th year for the annual sweepstakes held by Improveit! . Additionally 53 winners were awarded other home improvement  projects.

The prize period has begun for 2009 with a total retail value of $45,000 for all prizes, including a grand prize that is valued up to $10,000.
