Eric and Sharon Mobley registered prize entries at the Improveit! Home Remodeling locations throughout the year, but it was their online entry that was pulled to win the 2009 Home Makeover Contest.

The couple from Columbus won the grand prize and elected to have 10 windows replaced with energy efficient windows from Improveit! Sharon said replacing windows was on her to-do list, but finding a way to pay for them had the project on hold. They both agreed that improving the energy efficiency of the home is needed. The house was built in 1956 when the technology for stopping heat loss was insufficient compared to modern building codes.

Sharon Mobley admires the new front window. Winning the grand prize allowed her the opportunity to change from double hung windows to a sliding window.

She has been employed for 33 years as a tax agent for the state of Ohio. The couple has been married for five years, Eric works installing hardwood flooring in homes. They both claim they have never won anything of value contributing to the special day when they were announced as winners.

“I won a scratch-off once, a $30 winner,” said Eric after he was presented with the winning certificate. “The guy I was with won $500.”
