Long Fence and Home Blog Helps Homeowners Do Their Part


BELTSVILLE, Md., March 10, 2010 – Almost half of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide come from homes and buildings, and Long Fence and Home wants to help change that in the D.C. region. A longtime leader in the home improvement industry, Long Fence and Home announced the recent launch of its new blog,, intended to help homeowners learn as much as they can about properly maintaining their homes, reducing household energy costs and helping improve the state of the environment.

“People are very conservation savvy today. Homeowners are asking themselves what they can do from an energy standpoint to help our nation and help themselves,” said John DePaola, president and CEO of Long Fence and Home. “At the same time, there’s a lot of confusing information out there. We want to give our customers a reference point where they can come and gain valuable knowledge about current trends in home improvement and household energy issues.”

The new blog will feature company news, the latest tips for reducing home energy usage and original, objectively reported content about the local area green scene, such as interviews with community leaders and links to government incentives for area residents.

“Homeowners look to us for answers,” Mr. DePaola said. “We consider it our duty to plow through the sometimes complex issues concerning home maintenance and make the issues simple and digestible. We want to give homeowners a clear action plan so they know exactly how to care for their homes.”

The Beltsville, Md. based company was formed from the vision of Bob Long. His company began in 1945 as a local fence company, eventually expanding into energy efficient replacement windows and other home improvements in 1994. They are the area’s exclusive distributor of Serious Windows, whose energy efficient windows are used in LEED-certified projects across the country, and recently were featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
