Kimberly Gettle / The Gettle Group

I love Real Estate. I especially love the people I am able to help in Real Estate. It is of utmost importance to choose a Realtor® you can trust. Over the years, I have heard and experienced the results of trusting in a Realtor® that took advantage of their client or didn’t hold their client’s best interest above their own. I became a Realtor® because I am determined to be above average in ethics, standards, and integrity – which creates top-notch quality. I began a team to help meet all the various needs of all of those looking for quality in their real estate transaction. Your Key Impressions Team with ERA Old South Properties, only needs one chance to impress you.

Welcome to Emerald Coast Crown Molding.

Q.What exactly is this product? How does this foam differ from standard Styrofoam I might be most familiar with?

A. This is a high density polystyrene that is created in a high temperature, high pressure press unlike regular expanded foam moldings made by other manufacturers.This is not cooler foam, packaging foam, or styrofoam.  

  •  “Styrofoam” is a trademark of Dow Chemical.
  •  Styrofoam is not even an open cell foam. It is actually an extruded closed cell polystyrene material.” XPS”
  • “Styrofoam” is now a recognized name for EPS expanded polystyrene, XPS extruded polystyrene

            and even polyurethane crown moldings. When you search the web you will find all three.


  • EPS is an “Expanded Polystyrene”  foam like you see in drink coolers and corners protectors that go around products in boxes.

There are several densities of EPS foams. 


  •   1 lb. foam means 1lbs. per cubic foot in weight. (soft)
  •   2 lb. foam means 2 lbs. per cubic foot in weight. (harder)

  Most likely you will not see any EPS greater that 2 Lb. for commercial use
and 1 lb. for packaging, hobby or household use.
  Our crown moldings are 4 Lb. density.

Pensacola Business Radio- THRIVE Hour – 02.02.16 – Guests: Stephanie Porter, Kevin Miller and Leanne Todd


Thrive Team
Kevin Miller / Stephanie Porter / Leanne Todd



Stephanie Porter

Kevin Miller joined us in the studios with Stephanie Porter and Leanne Todd to talk about all of the great things about THRIVE.


Le-Vel was created and envisioned with a greater purpose, a premium plan. This plan is not to create a product, or a product line, but to build a global brand, a new icon. A brand that encompasses ultra premium products: premium product lines. The new brand, for the better lifestyle, premium-seeking consumers.

The largest and most successful companies in the world are extremely good at one thing. They build brands, not products. They are so good at this one focus, they can literally put their logo on anything and it is passionately accepted worldwide. As the Le-Vel vision is birthed with THRIVE, it will continue on with all of our brands and future premium products. Le-Vel will be a global giant; our logo will be on many different products, wherever you go, our logo will go with you. The quality, passion and efficacy with one product line, will flawlessly continue on to all product lines, because the true focus, our passion will always remain at its inception, The Brand: Le-Vel.

To build the Premium Lifestyle Company, we knew we had to look further than just a product, we had to envision a larger purpose, a deeper reason for what we were doing. We had to create the one and only Premium Lifestyle Brand.


What is the THRIVE Experience?
