St. Joseph, Michigan, United States, 2019-Sep-24 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — When natural disasters strike, homes are destroyed, jobs and lives are lost, and local economies are decimated.

These are also often used to quickly set up tents that delivered immediate protection from the elements. In addition, debris netting tarps are often used to cover areas where inclement weather makes repairs difficult to execute.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /EPR Network/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.
As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.
Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.
Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.
Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.
As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”
Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.

Raleigh, NC, March 21, 2016 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — As landfills continue to be the dumping grounds for out-of-date kitchen cabinets, one innovative cabinet start-up out of Raleigh, North Carolina provides a solution that allows homeowners, designers and housing developers to update kitchens while keeping more trees in the forests and less waste in the dumps.
Besh creates eco-friendly cabinets that feature a swappable-front system and a sleek, modern design. By using industrial-grade engineered wood made with 100% wood waste, low VOC finishes and Besh’s frameless (euro-style) system, you don’t have to sacrifice Mother Nature’s resources for new kitchen cabinets. And since Besh cabinets are proudly made in the USA, the reduced shipping distance also contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.
Founder and designer Becky Shankle created Besh to be a natural solution for people who want modern kitchen cabinets — especially if they want something environmentally friendly and easily changeable in the future.
“People want options. They want to be able to evolve their kitchen. However, we only have one planet, and we must take care of it,” says Shankle.
With Besh, you install the backbone of the cabinet system and choose from countless customizable options like doors, drawer fronts, and robust, durable soft closing hardware to create your own unique design. Since the backbone is modular and always stays in place, you can give your kitchen a whole new look by ordering new doors and drawer fronts. You can even send the old ones back to Besh to be refurbished and reused.
While many companies in the cabinet industry support the old-fashioned “discard and replace” approach, Shankle believes less is more. “My goal is to sell people as few Besh cabinet systems as possible,” she states. “Then when they want to update we can just replace the doors and drawer fronts. It’s better for the environment and better for people’s wallets.” While Besh cabinets are hearty and built to last much longer than the cheap-overseas cabinets, they’re also more budget friendly than the high-end imported options.
After two successful years in the North Carolina market, Besh recently launched a new website www.bestcabinets.com and is lining up regional distribution channels as a precursor to a broader national rollout.
The Besh website was designed by Code18 Interactive (www.code18.com), a digital agency based in NYC.
Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, Besh provides high-quality cabinet systems created by professional kitchen designers who love modern design and responsible living. Proudly made in the U.S.A., Besh cabinet systems allow homeowners to redesign their cabinets while respecting the planet.

Maybe you are a home user getting ready to tackle a Do It Yourself (DIY) task or maybe you are a professional taking on a new job, but in either case you probably recognise the importance of having the right tools for the job. Fix 8 also recognise that whilst a bad workman always blames his tools, having the right power tools to hand will help get things off to a much better start.
Indeed Fix 8 pride themselves on their ability to supply both the amateur DIY person and the professional tradesman with high quality power tools at prices to suit all budgets. As an example you may just need a lightweight cordless screwdriver for very occasional use around the house, in which case Fix 8 would recommend a small 3.6v model. However, they also supply a wide range of heavy duty cordless screwdrivers and drills in a wide range of voltages from 10.8V to 36V, including the common sizes of 7.2,9.6 and 14.4V, as well as truly industrious high power 24 and 36V models. Fix 8 advise that the latter are ideal for professionals and are ideal for continual heavy use including drilling in to concrete.
When it comes to working with wood then they supply a complete range of electric planers, routers and sanders to cover all of your woodworking needs. Indeed they specialize in the Makita range of sanders, which have been chosen by Fix 8 for their ease of use, durability and value for money. They offer a full range of Makita sanders from high-powered angle sanders, orbital sanders, belt sanders, filing sanders, palm sanders through to multi-purpose sanders.
Fix 8 also have a wide range of power tools designed for working with harder materials such as concrete, ranging from heavy duty hammer drills capable of using extra long drill bits through to stone cutters.
All of Fix 8’s power tool range can be found on their website, where pictures, and full descriptions of all of their power tools can be easily accessed and ordered online. Best of all if you spend more than £50, next day delivery is free, and as Fix 8 recognises that your time is money, you can even have your new power tools delivered directly to the site you are working on, saving you time by letting you get on with work and not having to wait at home for a delivery.
On their new website Fix 8 also offer a wide range of accessories for all of their power tools, from spares batteries to dust extraction units and Bosch jigsaw blades, making them a one stop shop when it comes to power tools.
Once you have checked out their latest range of power tools online you may want to order some of the extensive range of fixings and fasteners that they sell, in order to complete your job, all of which are also available with next day delivery. Fix 8 also offer a comprehensive range of support online as well as having highly knowledgeable staff that can handle all of your telephone enquiries.
When it comes to looking for a one stop shop for meeting all of your construction supply needs, then Fix 8 look to have things covered. They have recognised that whilst many people want to shop around for value for money, that the same busy people do not also want to waste time, which would be better spent working, rather than driving around four or five different shops in order to save the very last penny. Given the cost of fuel on top of this then finding one supplier such as Fix 8 that can fulfil all of your construction needs can be a great time and money saver.
Firstly they carry a huge range of fasteners and fixings online from simple screws through to frame fixings and even heavyweight concrete anchors, all of which can be ordered for next day delivery if ordered before 4pm. They also have a dedicated section on their website detailing technical dimensions and specifications of all of the fasteners and fixings that they sell, taking the guesswork out of choosing the right product for the job. This is backed up by company staff that have an outstanding knowledge of fasteners and fixings, and they can provide realistic, practical advice on which products you need to use, and they are all just a phone call away.
Secondly they carry a wide range of professional grade power tools and accessories, also with guaranteed next day delivery. This is because Fix 8 know that when your old drill packs up, or your existing cordless drill battery dies, that you need to be back up and running as soon as possible. It is also the reason why every range of power tools sold by them has been chosen not just to offer you the best price, but also a power tool that is going to last you a long time. Whilst other suppliers maybe happy to sell you a brand new angle grinder every year, Fix 8 would far rather they sell you the right one just the once, rather than the wrong one several times over.
Fix 8 are dedicated to providing you with the best customer service possible, and to their mind good customer service is supplying you with a power tool that lasts for years, not months; along with supplying a vast range of industry products at trade prices.
They also carry an extensive range of general construction products such as fillers, sealants, adhesive and paints as an example. In addition to this they also have an extensive range of hand tools such as general building tools, through to more specialist plumbing tools.
One look at their website and you will see that if you are in the construction industry then there are very few jobs that you will undertake whereby Fix 8 cannot supply everything you need from start to finish, from the power drill you need to make a hole, to the frame fixing you then put in the hole, through to the paint you end up using to paint the frame with. Lastly when it comes to keeping you safe whilst doing every stage of the task in hand then Fix 8 also have an extensive range of safety and personal protection products from protective eye wear, to safety gloves and boots to offer you total protection.
Fix8 Ltd offer a large variety of fixings and fasteners at trade prices, including Machine Screws, Bosch Jigsaw Blades, Self Tapping Screws, Frame Fixings and much more!
Ace Sheds have a fantastic range of timber products which range from sheds to timber workrooms and wooden summerhouses and at first it seems strange that this is the time of the year to promote the summer house but there is more than a little logic to the argument. The summerhouse is often put to bed in winter the family does not get the time to use it because they are working and going to school and when they return the nights are cold and dark but in many cases the opposite is true.
The retired family or the wife or husband with time on their hands when the children are at school can find the summerhouse a superb place to spend some time in the autumn, winter and spring. The wooden summer house is in essence an extra communal space fitted into the glorious surroundings of a garden, the best views and the quietest room and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the house. Once a timber summerhouse is used through the winter it will be surprising how quickly the working members of the family migrate to it at the weekend.
Ace can supply wooden summer houses from a large range and at a large number of different dimensions to fit almost every requirement of the user. Over the years the vast experience Ace Sheds have gained has been put to use in finding a building that will satisfy virtually every desire. The summer houses can be fitted out to meet the user’s requirement’s, the introduction of power will enable lights and power points to be fitted. This enables the kettle to be boiled and the television or radio to be used with the proper furniture the summerhouse becomes great retreat. It also allows a heater to be installed.
The autumn is a great time to put in a summerhouse as the weather is quite good and there is less to do in the garden so time restrictions are less, the grass does not need much attention and the flowers are going to sleep. ACE Sheds have some excellent designs available from corner units that can fit into a small garden to large airy timber workshops that can act as a decent workplace in the garden. ACE Sheds are particularly proud of the Bournemouth and Middlesex ranges as they supply an excellent summerhouse at a very reasonable cost.
The Bournemouth summerhouse for example is a lovely room with the whole of the front of the building fitted with small square windows from floor to ceiling including the double door entrance. The windows also go round each side to give a 270 degree view of the garden, house or the surrounding area.
The Middlesex range is ACE Sheds best-selling range and it is easy to see why that is the case. This is a great pitched roof design with lovely Georgian windows providing a good airy aspect and which will be a great addition to any garden. The design is excellent and value for money cannot be beaten. ACE Sheds are just a click or a call away and will answer any question available and a Christmas drink in the winter’s sun can become a reality.

Decorative garden stones are ideal for giving your outdoor space a more elegant, interesting look while still being practical. Garden stones come in a wide variety of different sizes and shapes, and many offer a motif that might be near and dear to your heart, like the “Gather” garden stone, designed with colorful butterflies, the“Love Blooms Here” garden stone, complete with fairies, butterflies and flowers in an ivory finish, or the “Love” Garden stone, which features text, boldly colored dragonflies and water lily blooms. You can pick one type of garden stone and use several of them throughout your space to create a walkway or you can pick different ones to mix and match throughout your garden.
Urn fountains are a subdued yet noticeable addition to any garden. Urn fountains are made from faux-stone materials that look surprisingly real up close, and the graceful curves and shape of the fountain, along with the delicate stream of water emanating from the fountain are sure to give your garden a relaxing feel.
Acorn fountains have a traditional look much like the alabaster fountains you probably grew up seeing in your neighbors or grandmother’s garden. Made from ivory alabastrite, acorn fountains look just like real stone, and the bright, vibrant color is sure to get the attention of visitors. Place an acorn fountain in the middle of your garden as a marvelous centerpiece. Not only will the fountain be beautiful, but the added visual interest will really make the colors of your flowers and plants pop.
Wind chimes are a beautiful, soothing addition to your garden or outdoor space. Wind chimes come in a variety of different materials and styles. The most common type is classic aluminum wind chimes, which produce soft, gentle tones throughout the day and night. If you’re looking for something more decorative, consider acrylic hummingbird chimes, which are adorned with colorful hummingbirds. For the ocean lover, acrylic dolphin wind chimes can bring a bit of the sea right to your own backyard. You can also add delicate rhythmic sounds to your garden by adding natural or coated bamboo chimes to your garden. If you have a very large outdoor area, consider mixing and matching different types of wind chimes or buying multiple sets.
Antique-Style Ivory or Sage Duck Décor
Adding an antique-style ivory or sage duck statue to your garden is a great way to add a bit of color and whimsy to your space. The weathered finish of the statue gives your wood duck a delightful old-time feel, similar to those found in the gardens of yesteryear. Choose just one or two duck statues, or if you have a small pond or fountain, purchase multiple ducks to make a charming outdoor scene for your garden. You can even put other animal statues like roosters or chickens nearby to give your area a bit of a wild farm feel. Don’t spend your money on antique statues from consignment shops and flea markets when you can buy high-quality new ones that will last longer for just a fraction of the cost.
What garden would be complete without singing birds? Adding the barnyard birdhouse to one of your nearby trees with area-appropriate food and water will definitely draw beautiful avian creatures right to your home. Large enough for a small family of birds, the barnyard birdhouse will add a rustic look to your garden.
Blue Floral Planters
If you have herbs, vegetables or flowers that you prefer to grow in planters rather than in the ground, planters painted in a Delft style are perfect for almost any space because the vibrant Delft blue and crystal clear white will match anything you put in them. You can choose to buy blue floral planters in a variety of different sizes and with or without a drain hole depending on your needs.
Butterfly Garden Stakes
Garden stakes are purely decorative items that bring extra life and color to your garden. No garden is truly finished until there are beautiful butterflies floating around, but luckily, you can add them yourself! Butterfly garden stakes come in a translucent red color that catches the sun and makes them glimmer in the light. Try adding butterfly garden stakes along walkways or within groups of plants that need a burst of color. Butterfly garden stakes can also be used as decorative reminders to prune or trim certain items in your garden the next day or week.

Force 8 is following Scandanavia’s lead by launching high-tech VEKA triple glazing: and during March is offering it at the same price as double glazing.
There is now a solution to skyrocketing energy bills, as Stockport based window and composite stable doors manufacturer Force 8 is launching a range of triple glazed windows that will keep your heat levels up and your bills down. And as a special offer for March, it is offering these high-tech windows at the same price as its regular double-glazing.
Managing director Dennis Sumner explained: “Triple glazing has been around for decades in Scandinavia and Canada, but the rising costs of energy in the UK means now is the time for the extra pane. “With the cost of energy set to increase year on year, we believe that the market is more than ready for triple glazing.”
VEKA windows incorporate the latest glass technology, using plantitherm glass and argon-filled units to maximise insulation. The VEKA 70mm FS frame system can achieve U-values down to 0.6W/ m2-k – which in simple terms means a vast saving in heat loss per square metre of glass.
“Triple glazing is the most energy-efficient window available today, and offers 40 per cent more efficiency than standard ‘A’-rated double glazing. When you fit Force 8’s new range of triple glazing you are installing the very latest product that the glazing industry has to offer,” said Dennis.
Force 8’s triple-glazed windows are available in hundreds of different styles and in white or wood grain colours. “There are no compromises in terms of aesthetics or sight lines, weather performance or security, and the cost savings for our triple glazing can be up to 50 per cent less,” added Dennis.
“This is a great advantage to house builders, home owners and developers looking to meet energy-efficiency regulations and appreciate the benefits of triple glazing without the hefty price premium.”
Force 8 also offers a comprehensive range of composite doors using the VEKA frames that can be fabricated with side panels or into arched frames.
