2020 Hurricane Season Squeezing Supplies of Tarps and Industrial Grade Coverings

St. Joseph, Michigan, USA, 2020-Sep-21 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — With an average hurricane season typically producing twelve storms over the six month Atlantic storm season, over twenty named storm systems have been recorded by the National Hurricane Center over the last three months.

Masonry Cosmetics announces the release of over 300 case studies and the launch of GoldStandardStaining.com

South Bend, Indiana, USA, 2020-Aug-26 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — In the winter of 2013, Masonry Cosmetics began a mission. Don Foster, Vice President of Masonry Cosmetics, started a project to help customers classify masonry staining companies based on the long-term performance of their products. Knowing architectural firms and engineers would appreciate this information that would help them find staining companies to solicit bids from, he began the process of distinguishing between companies that could or could not identify long-lasting jobs, ones that “stood the test of time.”

Masonry Cosmetics began the search. They identified three other major stain companies in the same territory, the Midwest United States; Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania specifically. These companies had been put in the same specifications as Masonry Cosmetics by architects. Reaching out to each company, all of whom claimed to have long-lasting products and a lengthy history, they asked if they could provide any of the following: two jobs twenty years or older, five jobs fifteen years or older, and five jobs ten years or older. None would identify a single long-lasting job. One firm cited concerns about methodology, another claimed to fear antitrust litigation, and the third simply did not respond.

However, Foster would not give up so easily.

Developing a list of jobs from these firms garnered from their websites, from magazine articles, and from their YouTube videos, Foster reasoned the jobs a company chose to showcase on their own volition and use in advertisements and publications would constitute a fine resumé of its best work. Assembling a team together, Foster sent them out to have a second look at these sites. Masonry Cosmetics could not find a single job that lasted the test of time that was applied to brick, for even ten years. Foster found that even jobs that were four to six years old often showed signs of deterioration. While these firms might have a lengthy history, they are unable to substantiate their claims of their stains lasting many years with any evidence that either they have provided, or that Masonry Cosmetics is able to uncover.

This project would be the inspiration for what was to come in 2019.

In 2019, Don Foster began to assemble examples of Masonry Cosmetics’ work into case studies. Endless nights were spent going through photographs of projects taken all the way back in the early 1990s, assembling information, pictures of projects before, during and after completion, and getting in contact with the location’s owners. Then, he and his team traveled. They traveled across the United States with one mission: to prove that Masonry Cosmetics doesn’t belong in the same category as it’s competitors, taking thousands upon thousands of photos of buildings they completed jobs on decades before.

They found, as they predicted, the stain that had been applied had not only not faded, cracked, chipped or otherwise been compromised or hurt the wall it had been applied to- it looked identical to when it had been stained, case after case, the results were the same. Masonry Cosmetics stain can stand the test of time in ways others stains simply couldn’t even compare to. The proof was in the pictures… and now you can see the pictures for yourself.

Masonry Cosmetics is proud to announce the release of its website, GoldStandardStaining.com, where you can go and view the evidence for yourself. There, you’ll find over three-hundred completed case studies with more to come of jobs sorted by age and put into rankings: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. These jobs can go as far back as the 1980s, some staining jobs done by Masonry Cosmetics co-founder Rick Conner using the Proprietary Proven Masonry Stain, before Masonry Cosmetics itself was created. The entire history of Masonry Cosmetics has been laid out, and it’s there for all to appreciate and enjoy.

You can find the over three-hundred case studies at https://www.goldstandardstaining.com/.

Fix8 Total Construction Supply

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!

Insulate yourself against increasing energy costs with Force 8

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.

Force 8 launches round pivot windows in REHAU profile

Force 8, the Stockport-based REHAU trade fabricator and composite doors specialist, has launched what it believes it the UK’s first round pivot window in the REHAU PVC-U profile system.

Dennis Sumner, Managing Director of Force 8, said that he expects demand to come from both the retail and commercial sectors where the REHAU brand is so strong.

He said: “Round pivot windows add an interesting design feature in domestic properties and are also used extensively as part of commercial design schemes. We believe that they have the potential to create valuable new sales opportunities for installers, particularly in REHAU profile which is so renowned for its quality and ease of installation.”

The new round pivot window is a perfect demonstration of Force 8’s bending expertise, with eight bends in total used to achieve the perfect circle.

The window is completely reversible through 180º which makes it easy to clean when necessary and it has security catches at the top and bottom to ensure the safety and security of users.

Force 8 is offering the REHAU round pivot in diameters from 750mm to 1200mm and in white as standard. It can also supply in Mahogany, Rosewood or Golden Oak wood-grain, or in any one of REHAU’s coloured foiled finishes.

21 of the new REHAU windows have already been manufactured and supplied by Force 8 to Windoworld for installation in a local school in Portsmouth. The company’s bending expertise and efficiency means that all 21 windows were supplied in just two weeks; and the success of the project means that the company is now offering the windows as a standard product with a lead time of just one week.

The round REHAU pivot windows join Force 8’s extensive portfolio of curved, arched, gothic and hexagonal frames, all available on short lead times and to bespoke designs.

Force 8 Demonstrate Roof Construction Quality With Full-Scale Model

Ever wondered if your conservatory roof has been constructed correctly or if it’s been built to last? Specialist roofing company Force 8 has constructed a full scale roof model in its Altrincham showroom so you can examine up close the sections and intricacies involved – and check for yourself if your roof is fit to weather the weather.

Plus, if you do find you need help or advice, the team at Force 8 can provide the perfect solution to suit your individual needs and budget. As the roof is the part of the conservatory most exposed to the elements, it is most likely to deteriorate first. So having a new conservatory roof fitted or just replacing old conservatory panels can make a dramatic difference to your home, safety and comfort.

Touch of glass
Glass conservatories are most people’s preference as they provide clearer views than using alternative materials, and self-cleaning glass is ideal for those hard to reach places that need cleaning regularly. For new glass conservatory roofs Force 8 uses energy efficient glass from leading manufacturers Pilkington. And Pilkington Active Blue provides improved solar control and is more energy efficient.

Alternative options
At Force 8, however, new conservatory roofs are available in both glass and polycarbonate. And new polycarbonate roofs with multi-chambered polycarbonate can give u-value as low as 0.5 w/(m²-k) and are available in a range of colours and depths.

Whether you want to replace conservatory panels, just the components, or maybe you’d like a bespoke roof designed to fit your conservatory precisely, Force 8 can accommodate all your requirements. Plus, all its bespoke conservatory roofs are produced by leading conservatory roof manufacturers Ultraframe, so quality is assured.

Aggreko Builds Reputation For Construction Solutions

Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power and temperature control solutions, provided a temporary heating and dehumidification package to main contractors FCC Elliott Construction to assist in the construction programme of the new 312 bed South West Acute Hospital at Enniskillen in Northern Ireland.

Aggreko initially supplied six 125 kW IDF heaters and 12 1600 KT dehumidifier packages to dry and heat the clinical and ward blocks of the new hospital – to 6C – to enable painting of the interiors. Moisture and temperature control equipment was also supplied in basement corridors to protect electrical equipment and busbars from moisture.

The temporary dehumidifiers were deployed on site in sequence to remove excess moisture from each block of the hospital. Flexible ducting took hot air from the temporary heaters to each floor, and polyducting was suspended from corridor ceilings to distribute air throughout each floor area.

Howard Sharp, Construction Director at FCC Elliott Construction, said: “Aggreko provided an effective temporary moisture and temperature control solution which is assisting us to continue to deliver this high quality healthcare facility on time and on budget. Their technical expertise and professional, high standard of service throughout the project has been invaluable on such a large, high profile scheme.”

Martin Byrne, sales manager at Aggreko, said: “It is vital that construction programmes run according to schedule, particularly on major developments, as delays can have a huge impact on project costs. Our temporary dehumidification and temperature control equipment, which is available for hire ensures the correct conditions for electrical installations and internal finishes such as paint and floor coverings, assisting contractors to deliver projects to meet their clients’ requirements.”

Call Centre Dials In Aggreko Rental Power

Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, proved the reliability of rental power when a customer’s own back-up generator failed and an alternative power supply was required urgently.

Good Fellas’ national call centre in Port Elizabeth relies heavily on consistent and reliable power to run its advanced telecommunications and IT equipment, which is in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The company’s standby power plant failed during a weekly test and parts needed to repair the generator were not readily available.

Without standby power in place, the call centre was wholly reliant on power from the national grid, which had experienced power cuts in recent times. Being without a back-up power supply meant the risk of serious financial losses, so the management of Good Fellas looked for an alternative solution.

Aggreko was contracted to provide a standby generator of 60 kVA, which was installed on site immediately. Aggreko’s wide range of generators, from 10 kW up to 1250 kVA, means that customers are able to hire the exact amount of power required whenever necessary.

Jonathan Bishop, Chief Executive, Good Fellas, said: “The power package Aggreko installed was so reliable that we took the decision to continue renting from them for the long-term. The team provides fantastic support and regularly tests and maintains the equipment, ensuring we have complete peace of mind.”

Martin Foster, Country Manager, Aggreko South Africa, commented: “The upkeep and maintenance of power equipment, such as generator rental can become expensive and inconvenient for a company when power is not its core business. Aggreko takes over that responsibility, leaving our customers to get on with their day job. We look forward to growing our relationship with Good Fellas in the future.”

Online home improvement price comparison site Local Quoter has launched a new range of thermal and PV solar panels in a bid to make it easier than ever for home and business owners to become energy efficient.

PV (Photovoltaic) solar panels work by producing electricity from daylight – photons are converted to electrons and fed into the power supply. PV solar panels are able to produce electricity even on overcast days, making them perfect for houses in the UK!

The popular site has been offering quotes for standard solar panels to customers for over 12 months and launching this new range of energy efficient products has been a natural progression for the company.

Les Yates from Local Quoter said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring homeowners the latest in energy efficient technology.”

“We know that these thermal and PV solar panels are a fantastic way not only to help the planet but also to make huge saving on annual household bills, and ultimately most people want to save money wherever they can”, he added.

Customers can enter a set of simple details into the quick online form to receive a variety of quotes from local companies offering solar panel services, from which they can choose the one that suits them best.

As it becomes more and more important for homeowners to do their part for the environment, customers will find that they can get everything from cheap UPVC windows to PV solar panels without having to spend a fortune by using the online services from Local Quoter. These energy efficient measures often provide a very quick return on investment too.

It is believed that Calacatta Gold marble mosaics tiles polished and honed have always been the choice of kings in the ancient world for it strength and beauty. However the cost of this product and limited availability has put it out of reach and budget for most homeowners until now.

The Builder Depot has launched a new collection of Calacatta Gold marble subway tiles, floor tiles, mosaics and trims for 2011 creating affordability and availability for homeowners, contractors and developers of a much sought after Calacatta gold product.

In the same tradition of all Builder Depot collections the pricing is very aggressive. “This particular product and European quarry has been monopolized by a few distributors” comments a Builder Depot spokesperson “This has allowed the pricing of the product to be inflated, we are going to sell the same quality for 75% less than the competitors”

•Calacatta Gold 3×6” Subway Tile Honed
•Calacatta Gold 2” Hexagon Tile Honed
