What’s the difference between a house and a home?
What’s the difference between a house and a home? There are many ways to distinguish the two, but what is perhaps most important is that a house doesn’t usually feel like a home until we make it our personal space. After all, a home is not just a refuge, but a true reflection of who we are and how we want to live. Lowe’s has been helping people turn their houses and apartments into homes since we first opened our doors in 1946. The Lowe’s culture is built on continuing to answer this call.
How do we do it? Together, our Red Vest associates work as individuals sharing their knowledge and skills and as a cooperative, collaborative team that embodies the “Power of We” to help customer’s dreams come true – project after project. If you’re curious and courageous and have desire to make things happen, then you share our culture and mission. We invite you to join us.

We believe in corporate responsibility.
At Lowe's, home improvement means more than a fresh coat of paint or a new dishwasher. As a leader in our industry, we feel a responsibility to every community we serve, and hope to continually raise the bar for what service means.
It starts with our employees, whose safety and wellbeing is integral to our success. Lowe's has a strong culture of volunteerism, and our Lowe's Heroes go above and beyond to have a positive impact on their communities. From disaster relief efforts to neighborhood revitalization and fundraising, Lowe's team members donate their time, talent, and product to help those in need. As a company, Lowe's supports a variety of charitable giving initiatives, and since 2007 the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation has given more than $250 million to these efforts.
In addition to causes like housing, disaster relief, and education, Lowe's is deeply committed to reducing our environmental footprint and choosing sustainable systems and products. In fact, Lowe's is the first in our industry to receive the Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Excellence Award for ten years in a row. We believe it's vital to protect our resources and the home we all share.
