By Anuradha Kher, Online News EditorNewport Beach, Calif.–Hacker Industries Inc. recently donated FIRM-FILL 2010 Gypsum Concrete Floor Underlayment to the San Diego Habitat for Humanity (SDHFH).  The product donation provided a smooth, hard surface for finished floor coverings in SDHFH’s new Roosevelt Garden Condominiums in Carlsbad, Calif. “Hacker Industries’ involvement with Habitat for Humanity began many years ago,” says Kerry Hacker, vice president of Hacker Industries, Inc. “This is truly a great cause, and we are very proud to contribute our products to the Roosevelt Condominiums and continue our support for Habitat for Humanity.” In 2008, Hacker Industries, Inc. celebrated its 25th Anniversary by teaming up with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity to help rebuild homes in New Orleans’ Musician’s Village.Roosevelt Gardens is an 11-unit condo community consisting of six 674 sq. ft. one-bedroom units and five 894 sq. ft. two-bedroom units. FIRM-FILL 2010 not only provided a flat surface for the project, but also offered high compressive strengths matched with sound and fire resistance. “This is SDHFH’s first set of buildings where the floor/ceiling design required this type of product. I am more than pleased with the end product, and the service that Hacker Industries and Hi-Tech Gypsum provided,” says Joe Carton, general superintendent for SDHFH. Hi-Tech Gypsum Inc. installed approximately 2,400 sq. ft. of FIRM-FILL 2010 in the first building and is expected to pour the second building later this year. Hi-Tech Gypsum also contributed labor and materials to the project.
