Door, Frame, Hardware Distributors Migrating to SFH Cloud™

ATLANTA, GA – March 25, 2022 – Software for Hardware has recently implemented and introduced cloud based services to SFH customers. Since the beginning of 2022, SFH has migrated distributors to SFH Cloud™ nearly every week of the new year. 

Cloud technology improves staff productivity and company profitability. SFH Cloud™ provides easier access to data and software through any internet connected device. 

Distributors that have migrated to SFH Cloud™ have already experienced improved system performance, reliability and predictable expenses. Lisa Oxman, “We developed SFH Cloud™ in response to clients who recognized the value of cloud software. This year, it seems that recognition is quickly spreading across our entire customer base.” 

Cloud environments also provide system redundancy, consistent backup procedures, and state-of-the-art cyber security technology. Maintaining your data and software in the cloud dramatically reduces the risk of system downtime or a security breach.

Michael Schecter, Director of IT Services, “Often the hardest part of migrating to a better IT environment is the pain and downtime during the conversion. We’ve engineered a process to migrate customers over the weekend with no  staff downtime.” 

SFH provides the best product and tech support in the industry. SFH Cloud™ takes that support even higher as it enables Support staff to more quickly jump into customer accounts to diagnose and resolve issues.

Software for Hardware Announces Conclusion of Record-Breaking Year

ATLANTA, GA – December 30, 2021 – Software for Hardware introduced software for door, frame and hardware distributors in 1998 and has evolved the platform through 14 major version releases. In 2021, Software for Hardware expanded the software engineering team and accelerated product development. As a result, SFH delivered new technology, increased customer satisfaction, and grew revenue by 20%.

New Technology

In addition, SFH released an upgrade to the platform with version 14.1.   

Customer Satisfaction 

Software for Hardware has prioritized customer service for decades. In 2021, Software for Hardware implemented several initiatives to deliver even higher customer satisfaction. Actions included: creation of the SFH Customer Council, implementation of daily customer service surveys, and expansion of the P3 program.  As a result, on the factors: Knowledge Level, Desire to Help and Sense of Urgency, customers rate satisfaction 4.9 on a 5.0 scale.  

Beyond statistical metrics, generating actual business results for clients remains the real goal. For example, Building Specialties, purchased the SFH software and reported immediate results. Before Software for Hardware, Building Specialties used Excel to manage most projects. The General Manager, Chris Caudell, led the SFH implementation designed to increase staff productivity and improve project management efficiency. 

Chris stated that Building Specialties landed a Million project that would not have been possible without Software for Hardware and the support of the SFH Training and Tech Support staff.  “I did a lot of research before we purchased SFH, and I think the payback will continue to grow for us.”

Software of Choice

The combination of industry leading technology and customer support have driven strong new customer acquisition and revenue growth. In 2021, revenue grew 20% during a time of great uncertainty within the distribution and wholesale industry.  Small to midsize distributors are making Software for Hardware their software of choice for configure, price, quote and project management.

Migration To The NC Mountains Brings Buyers to THE BOULDERS As It Releases Stunning View Homesites At The Estates

Hendersonville, NC – April 16, 2021 – As the masses are looking to escape cities and head for the mountains, high-end communities like The Boulders in the mountains of Western North Carolina have become the go-to place to relocate.  With the severe lack of inventory in the area, buyers are hungry for new construction in a community that offers quality and convenience.  Gorgeous high-end homes have been built by residents throughout the gated mountain community, with five more custom homes under construction and at least three more on the drawing boards.

As the real estate market is soaring and buyers are coming off the sidelines and heading to the mountains of Asheville & Hendersonville NC, now is the perfect time to purchase a lot, even if building is in the future. With nearly 70 percent of the lots sold from its first four phases, the most dramatic homesites were saved for last – The Estates.  Rising in elevation with views to the west, south and/or east, each of the 11 lots are unique. Two have already been scooped up prior to officially marketing these one-of-a-kind homesites.  Estate lots start in the mid 0,000s, while 14 lots of beautiful mountain, partial and wooded lots priced from ,9000 to 9,900 are also available. 

The North Carolina mountains are a draw for those looking for nature, adventure, four mild seasons and access to art, culture, dining and mountain view lots to build their dream home. Hendersonville & Asheville rank high up on ‘where to visit, live and retire’ lists. But finding the right location is a consideration – how to balance living in the mountains without being remote and having quick access to medical, culture art and dining.  While mountain communities with glorious views and nature’s serenity are typically ‘off the beaten path’ and synonymous with long, winding commutes up mountain roads, The Boulders is a rarity – gorgeous views and convenient location. Situated on the north end of Hendersonville and the southern end of Asheville, in just 6 minutes you’re on Hendersonville’s Main Street, the Asheville airport is 10 minutes away and in 25 minutes you’re in downtown Asheville. 

When building in the mountains where slope and vistas come into play, the most effective approach is securing a lot first and then designing a house that fits the land and how you want to live. Once a you find the perfect homesite, design a home that considers the terrain, exposure and view. Read what to consider when buying land in the mountains. At The Boulders, there is no required time to build which offers freedom and flexibility to do when you’re ready.

The challenge for many relocating to the region is the lack of inventory and new construction. To build their dream home, buyers can select a homesite and use their own builder and house plan. Many of the area’s top builders have built luxury custom homes for residents, such as Osada Construction, Living Stone and Buchanan Construction. 

For a simpler approach, opt for The Boulders semi-custom Cottage Collection – mountain inspired homes with open floor plans that embrace outdoor living and maximize views. Exterior elevations are designed so no two homes look the same, and interiors can be customized.  The Boulders is a welcome departure to the cookie cutter community, where homesites with gorgeous panoramic views and nature provide the backdrop for a lifestyle and luxury mountain home that embodies individuality and style.

Whether a primary or second home, its location close to medical and shopping makes it perfect for boomers and retirees looking for a locale to stage their ‘second act.’ For families, top rated schools and close proximity to parks, recreation and amenities make it ideal. As a second home, the close proximity to Charlotte, Atlanta, Charleston and other drive markets, and one exit from the Asheville Airport makes The Boulders a great mountain getaway. 

With elevations soaring to 2,750 feet, the master planned community embodies nature with 25% of the land preserved in green space. Architectural guidelines reflect the community’s design aesthetics from arts and crafts to traditional, timber frame and mountain contemporary. The community has city water, electric, natural gas and fiber optic cable. 

Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 5pm or by appointment. GPS: 279 Randy Drive, Hendersonville, NC 28791; 828.333.4230, Live@TheBouldersNC.com, https://thebouldersnc.com

EverSeal Roofing Reviews Their Referral Program

You won’t have to sell anything, do any of the work, or take on any liability…

Simply Make the Connection and Collect Your Commission!

Sign up now at everseal.com/partnersignup

Simple. Easy. Fun.

  • If you ever come across flat roofs, low-slope roofs, or commercial roofs…
  • If you have any connections with property owners or managers…
  • If you simply want an easy way to make some extra money…

Then you could make hundreds if not thousands of dollars with EverSeal Roofing’s Referral Program.

And it’s easier than you think…

But before I explain how it works and why we’re doing this, you might be asking yourself…

“Who or what is EverSeal?”

That’s an excellent question. EverSeal is a high-tech, specialty roofing company. They permanently seal flat and low-slope roofs with a unique, liquid-applied roof sealant system. Their system is guaranteed for 50 years. And it costs thousands less than a typical roofing project. 

It also eliminates the need to replace or repair the roof altogether. EverSeal works on flat roofs of all types and sizes ranging from small patio roofs to hotel chains to industrial manufacturing facilities.

“OK, so why is EverSeal offering to pay referral rewards?”

Simply put. They need your connections!

Your part will be to:

  1. Refer roofs to EverSeal that are flat or low-slope.
  2. Make sure the owner or manager actually wants an estimate and wants to be contacted by EverSeal.
  3. Enter that owner/managers info into your online partner portal.

That’s it!

Now that lead is permanently associated with you. You don’t have to do any selling, closing, or scheduling. Just make the connection, they do the rest, and you get a commission when the job is complete.

“If I did this, how much could I actually make?”

Based on EverSeal’s finders fee, if you referred a ,000 job, your commission would be 0.00. If you referred 3 jobs like that per month, you could earn ,250.00. If you did that consistently for a year, you could make ,000.00. 

Not bad for simply making connections!

But some of their larger jobs are upwards of 0k. Your commission on a job like that would be ,500.00. If you referred 1 job like that every 3 months, you could bring in ,000.00 in a single year … just by making referrals!

Of course, you don’t have to refer multiple jobs. You can always refer one job, collect your check, and be done. It’s completely up to you.

“How do I get paid?”

Through your portal, you can watch the progress of the sale as they quote the job, follow up with the client, and finally schedule the project.

You can also easily track your commissions and earnings. Once the job is completed, you’ll receive a check or direct deposit (however you prefer) sent straight to your info on file.

“Why would someone want an estimate from EverSeal for their roof?”

Well first of all, they may have a leak. Or they may be coming to the end of their current warranty. Or they may be selling their property.

Maybe their previous roofer went out of business. Or maybe they’d just prefer to be done dealing with their flat roof for good.

In any event, getting an estimate from EverSeal is a no-brainer. In addition to our 50 year guarantee and significant cost savings, EverSeal also offers unrivaled benefits like the benefits listed below. EverSeal is:

  • 100% Tax Deductible – (for immediate financial savings)
  • 100% Seamless – (making it virtually impossible for water to leak in again)
  • Energy Efficient – (savings upwards of 35% every single month on energy bills)
  • Not a Roof Coating – (so you don’t have to coat and recoat your roof year after year)
  • Hail Resistant – (helping prevent unnecessary insurance claims)
  • Ponding Water Proof – (staying 100% water-repellent to protect you and your valuable assets)
  • Strength-Reinforced – (transforming the weakest most vulnerable areas of the roof into the strongest)
  • Used by FedEx, Holiday Inn, and Avis Car Rentals
  • And much, much more…

“How do I find flat roof owners and managers to get in touch with?”

Ideally, you’re a person who is already in touch with building owners and managers.

Typically, that means you are either a…

REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL: Like a real estate agent, broker, property manager, maintenance manager, etc…

— or a —

SERVICE PROFESSIONAL: Like a roofer, commercial HVAC technician, commercial painter, commercial plumber, christmas light installer, etc…

If you fall into either of these categories, you’ll have a solid network of building owners and managers whom you can help and then get paid commissions for. You may even be seeing them on a regular basis already.

“Why is EverSeal paying people money like this?”

EverSeal already spends 5% of their budget advertising on sites like Google, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, and more. But they still want to expand their reach.

Apparently they said in a meeting, “Why not offer local people in our communities the same money we’re paying large advertising platforms online?”

We think it’s a good way to reward people for helping local building owners while also growing EverSeal’s business at the same time.

“What do I need to do to be a part of this program?”

Whether you only want to refer one job or you want to refer hundreds of jobs, all you need to do is sign up today.

After signing up and creating your free online portal, you’ll have unlimited opportunities to request Free and Instant online estimates for building owners and managers and earn commissions on every single job.

To submit a new lead, simply log into your partner portal, input the contacts name, roof address, email, and phone. And that’s it.

That lead is now permanently associated with you. EverSeal will take care of contacting the client and all other responsibilities from there.

If you have more questions, you can learn more about EverSeal and their 50-year system at everseal.com or you can call them directly at (833) 203-7325.

But before you do anything else, sign up today. 

EverSeal only accepts 25 local applicants per territory. And you’ll need to fill out a short application to get started. It only takes a couple minutes and it’s completely free.

After that, they’ll be in touch with you to help to make sure you’re as successful as possible and answer any questions you may have.

EverSeal Roofing Reviews and How to Save On Flat Roof

EverSeal Roofing Reviews and Tips.

Got a leak?

Wondering what to do with your flat roof?

Want to know the smartest way to save money and ensure security for decades to come?

DON’T replace or repair your roof.

A little confused?  Here's an explanation.

Repairs are only short-term fixes.

Repairs may work for a short time. But all it takes is one rusty screw, a cracked joint or a loose seam to start another leak all over again. Most flat roofs have thousands of these “weak links”. Soon you’re patching patches until eventually your roof is no longer effective and you have to do something more permanent. Over time, cheap repairs become very expensive only delaying the inevitable need for a permanent solution.

Replacing your roof is costly.

Having to replace your roof costs A LOT of money. Additionally, one of the reasons so many flat roofs fail is because they are made up of hundreds of different pieces, glued together like a big jigsaw puzzle. Each piece is connected to another which creates a seam (or a “weak link”) meaning you have hundreds of ways for your roof to start leaking again. Flat roof materials degrade, crack and thin over time. That’s why most flat roofs leak and why they need to be replaced every 10–20 years.

Save yourself the problems and the expenses.

The EverSeal Roofing system permanently seals your flat or low-slope roof. It's guarnateed for 50 years, saves you thousands of dollars, and eliminates the need to replace (or repair) your roof alltogether.

It forms one solid piece; there are no seams so there are no “weak links” like other roofs. There’s virtually no way for water to get through our system. The EverSeal Roofing system is the best way NOT to worry about your roof again.

The EverSeal Roofing system uses the same technology NASA uses to protect their billion-dollar rockets. Our system’s key component is quartz, which is so durable it’s virtually incorruptible. It’s applied in a rubberized format so it can move and adapt to any surface creating a tight bond.

And you’re protected by our 50-Year Warranty.

If you’re interested in scheduling an inspection or getting started right away, you can visit EverSeal's website at everseal.com or call them direct at (833) 203-7325.

Explore the Area’s Finest Backyards and Outdoor Spaces on the 2020 Austin Outdoor Living Tour

While Austin lends itself to residents enjoying time outdoors all year around, it’s the spring and early summer months that make outdoor living in central Texas the reason so many live here.

The Austin Outdoor Living Tour is returning for a second year to celebrate the outdoor spaces Austin residents enjoy year-round – right in their own backyards. Organized and hosted by the Modern Architecture + Design Society (the group behind the annual Austin Modern Home Tour), this summer tour gives landscape architects and designers the unique opportunity to showcase their skill and talent to the community in which they work. In turn, the self-guided tour gives the community a rare chance to explore some amazing outdoor spaces in their area, while asking questions and engaging the minds behind the design.

“This is a lighter, shorter tour than our annual Modern Home Tour,” says James Leasure, founder of the Modern Architecture + Design Society. “But the principle is the same: come see these amazing spaces. Meet the designers and builders that created them. Get ideas and find inspiration for your own outdoor living space.”

Participants and neighborhoods featured on the 2020 Austin Outdoor Living Tour include:

  • A brand-new outdoor space by Shelter Home Building in the Zilker neighborhood that features an infinity edge pool, spa, cold tub, and incredible yard space.
  • A shared outdoor space with a Mediterranean feel for a four-unit “compound” in Barton Springs, designed by Native Edge Landscape, that features xeric plantings, an outdoor kitchen with storage, and a custom entry Koi Pond.
  • An outdoor space designed by Austin Outdoor Design in the Northwest Hills that gets inspiration from Mexican architect Luis Barragan (and the bright personality of the owners) to create an Austin-inspired take on modern Mexican Architecture and outdoor living.
  • A front outdoor space in Central East Austin, designed by Open Envelope Studio, that reconciles that dual existence of the yard to function as both entry way and living space, while retaining privacy for the owners.
  • A second Austin Outdoor Design project, located in St. Edwards, boasting all the best features for year-round outdoor living, like a custom pool, stone patio framed in steel, a 32” grill built into a limestone countertop, benches with custom cushions, and a fireplace.


NEW SAFETY RULES IN PLACE: In response to COVID-19, the Austin Outdoor Living Tour will have several new rules and policies in place. Tickets will be limited for this event. Entries at each home will be controlled to allow for social distancing in the outdoor spaces. Face coverings are a requirement for all visitors; no one will be allowed entry without a mask covering the nose and mouth. No children under age 12 will be allowed to enter. This year’s tour will be zero contact, including interactions with front door staff and throughout the yards.

Participants on the 2020 Austin Outdoor Living Tour will open their spaces for viewing from 9AM – 1PM on Saturday, June 20, 2020. Tickets to this year’s event are LIMITED. Details on pricing and ticket availability, as well as all rules and regulations for the 2020 Austin Outdoor Living Tour can be found at http://mads.media/atxoutdoor2020/.

About the Modern Architecture + Design Society: Based in Austin, Texas, the Modern Architecture + Design Society was founded by James Leasure in 2010 as Modern Home Tours, to introduce modern architecture and living to people across the nation.

Plano Overhead Garage Door Company Achieves A First In Its Industry

Plano Overhead Garage Door is the first company with over 5 employees to earn certification for all of its technicians. In order to pass the rigorous exam their technicians studied as a team over the past 4 months. They spent in excess of 30 hours in meetings studying over 400 pages of material in their Service Technician Manual, as well as tackling a wealth of content provided by I.D.E.A.

Certification isn’t required in Texas, and less than 5% of garage door companies in Texas employ I.D.E.A. Certified technicians. Driven to achieve the highest standards in the industry, Plano Overhead Garage Door felt that certification for all its technicians was a necessary step. All its service technicians are now certified nationally by the I.D.E.A. which means they’ve been classroom tested, professionally field trained, Google Verified, background checked, drug tested, and are fully insured full-time employees.

Plano Overhead Garage Doo r continually invests in their people and processes in additional ways. Recently the company invested in Surewinders, a new technology that enables technicians to safely and quickly tighten and unwind torsion springs. This expensive tool will help employees avoid bodily injuries that were not uncommon with older technologies. They have also invested in software that sends a text message with a picture and bio of their technicians when customers schedule an appointment. Customers also have access to recent reviews written about their installer. In addition, a link enables home owners to track the technician in real time on Google Maps when on route.

Since 1977, Plano Overhead Garage Door technicians have provided award-winning service, repairs, and installations in the Dallas area. Among their many accolades they have garnered the Consumers’ Choice Award for multiple consecutive years. In addition to superior service the company only installs top product lines from the leading suppliers of both garage doors and garage door openers.

Nick McGregor, the company’s CEO, is especially proud of their 17 technicians having succeeded in preparing and passing their certification exams. McGregor explains,“ We now have the best customer experience, the most advanced tools, and the highest quality of technicians available. It’s really special to be able to provide all these things to our customers at competitive prices.”

About Plano Overhead Garage Door:

Stertil-Koni USA Notches Record Sales in 2019: Product Engineering, Customer Service and Local Expertise Fuel Expansive Growth Strategy

Stertil-Koni, the recognized leader in hydraulic bus lifts and truck lifts, today announced that it achieved record sales in 2019, further boosting its presence in both the municipal and private sectors of the heavy duty vehicle lift market in the U.S. and Canada.

Driving its performance, noted company President, Dr. Jean DellAmore, have been three key success factors. “First,” he explained, “we are true specialists – entirely focused on the design, manufacture and service of heavy duty vehicle lifts.

“Second, Stertil-Koni is dedicated to exceptional product engineering that in turn directly translates into unparalleled lift performance, durability and safety. And third, our customers are supported by a world-class, highly trained network of distributor companies each of which has an average tenure of 15 years, is exclusive to Stertil-Koni in its respective geographic territory and embodies our vision to ensure the highest level of customer care in the industry.”

“The result,” DellAmore added, “is a unique combination of global product expertise fused with intensive, locally delivery customer support.”

The story, however, does not end there. Stertil-Koni has also grown by virtue of a strategy that continues to build on its legacy strength – Mobile Column Lifts – and has expanded in recent years by diversifying its offerings to significantly reshape the inground heavy duty vehicle lifting market.

Two key additions to the Stertil-Koni product line exemplify this approach. “Our DIAMONDLIFT,” DellAmore continued, “is a high-pressure, low-volume telescopic piston lift capable of lifting up to 105,000 lbs. in a three-piston configuration and setting new standards for inground lifts.”

It has proven itself to be ideal for a variety of workshop situations with features that include:

  • Electronic synchronization for maximum safety and convenience;
  • Mechanical locking system utilizing hardened, nitro carburized locking rod for maximum protection;
  • Touch-screen, finger-tip control console for ease-of-use;
  • Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Gold Certification from the industry’s leading third-party watchdog; and a
  • Continuous Recess movable lifting system – ideal for low-clearance vehicles.


Stertil-Koni also achieved significant success in 2019 with strong sales of the industry’s original, ultra-shallow, full-rise, axle-engaging scissor-style ECOLIFT. Noted Peter Bowers, technical sales manager for Stertil-Koni, “ECOLIFT is available in a two- , three- and four-scissor configuration with an ALI-certified lifting capacity of 30,000 lbs. per scissor. It is ideal for installation in both retrofit and existing workshops – and that helps account for its widespread use.”

ECOLIFT is differentiated by its ultra-shallow pit design – only 34 inches – and delivers wheels-free lifting, electronic synchronization and Continuous Recess along with a free-standing console for easy access and quick service.

Concluded DellAmore, “Stertil-Koni’s success really reflects our values and the way that we treat our closest friends and families. Simply put, we care deeply about the Stertil-Koni customer and we try to make that shine through everything we do and the manner in which we treat our customers.”

“Looking ahead, there is much more for Stertil-Koni to accomplish in 2020 and our energy is laser-focused on delivering new enhancements and heightened levels of support to our customers across North America.”

About Stertil-Koni
Stertil-Koni is the market leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts, notably bus lifts and truck lifts, and proudly serves municipalities, state agencies, school bus fleets, major corporations, the U.S. Military and more. Stertil-Koni's breadth of products meets all ranges of lifting needs and includes portable lifts such as Mobile Column Lifts, 2-post, 4-post, inground piston lifts, platform lifts, and its axle-engaging, inground, scissor lift configuration, ECOLIFT. The company’s innovative, inground telescopic piston DIAMONDLIFT is now available with an optional Continuous Recess system, ideal for low clearance vehicles. Stertil-Koni USA is headquartered in Stevensville, Maryland with production facilities in Europe, The Netherlands, and Streator, IL.

Truth or Consequences Dares to Be Durable with Penetron Technology

The renovation, repair and upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, were officially completed in January 2020. PENETRON ADMIX was used to ensure durable concrete structures for the plant to better serve a growing community.

The town of Truth or Consequences (or “T or C” as locals call it) is the administrative and economic center of Sierra County in southern New Mexico. With mild winter weather and warm summers, the town of about 7,500 inhabitants has a large contingent of year-round retirees, but it is also a popular tourist destination. The town’s historic district, the numerous hot springs and mineral baths, Elephant Butte Lake State Park and Caballo Reservoir, the Geronimo Trail Scenic Byway, and the recently completed Spaceport (30 miles east of T or C) define its vibrant tourist-based economy.

“Why the strange name? In fact, the town of Truth or Consequences was originally named ’Hot Springs,’ due to all the natural hot springs in the region. The current name came about when a game show host back in the 1950s dared any town in the USA to change their name to the same name as the TV show,” explains Christopher Chen, Director of The Penetron Group. “Our town in New Mexico took the dare – and changed the town name to Truth or Consequences. A more recent challenge was to find a suitable waterproofing solution for the recent repairs, expansion and upgrades to the town’s wastewater treatment plant. Penetron was chosen as their preferred solution.”

Renewing an Aged WWTP
The wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that serves the T or C community is over 40-years old. Because many of the plant’s process components had reached the end of their design life, and other parts of the treatment processes needed increasing levels of attention to maintain the desired level of performance. The WWTP was operating at approximately 70% of its original design flow (1.06 MGD), where previously it had operated at almost 95% of design flow. In addition, the anticipated, more stringent nutrient limitations for nitrogen and phosphorus meant that the existing treatment processes needed to be improved, and the growing demand for the reclaimed wastewater would also require further process upgrades.

Upgrading Concrete Elements
“All these issues were addressed simultaneously with a comprehensive renovation and upgrade program for the wastewater treatment plant to provide increased capacity and produce higher quality wastewater effluent,” notes Christopher Chen.

An engineering report showed that many of the original concrete elements of the original T or C wastewater treatment plant needed extensive repairs or outright replacement (and enlargement). These WWTP elements included the headworks, grit chamber, aeration oxidation oval, two clarifiers, and disinfection system.

“Initially, a competitive solution was specified by the consulting engineer at Smith Engineering,” adds Christopher Chen. “However, after reviewing the cost benefits and local technical and on-site support available from Penetron, the specification was revised to PENETRON ADMIX SB instead.”

Reducing Concrete Permeability
The concrete structures in a wastewater treatment plant are continually exposed to an aggressive environment that includes chlorides, sulfates, nitrates, disinfectants, an array of toxic compounds and even the chemicals added during the plant’s treatment processes. Adding PENETRON ADMIX SB to the concrete mix reduces concrete permeability, increases chemical resistance and enables self-sealing of new hairline cracks to enhance the durability of these key concrete components. Delivered in pre-measured soluble bags, PENETRON ADMIX SB was added by Bartoo Ready Mix to over 1,200 cubic yards (920 m3) of concrete.

“The T or C project was a success thanks to the on-site support by our local Penetron expert and Penetron’s success in dozens of previous wastewater treatment plant upgrades across the country,” concludes Christopher Chen.

The Penetron Group is a leading manufacturer of specialty construction products for concrete waterproofing, concrete repairs and floor preparation systems. The Group operates through a global network, offering support to the design and construction community through its regional offices, representatives and distribution channels.

New Utah Rail Manufacturing Site Rolls on Penetron Technology

The grand opening of Stadler Rail’s new US headquarters and manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, in September 2019 marked a further milestone in the Swiss company’s rapid expansion in the US market. PENETRON ADMIX was used to waterproof the foundation elements of the sprawling site.

Founded in 1942 by Ernst Stadler in Zurich, Switzerland, as an engineering office, the company first converted trams and small rolling stock to battery operation before moving up to the manufacture of battery- and diesel-powered locomotives three years later. In 1989, Peter Spuhler took over the company, which had 18 employees at the time. By focusing on regional and suburban market segments with complete vehicle concepts based on rail modules tailored to specific needs, the company continues to grow rapidly. Today, Stadler Rail has over 10,500 employees and maintains a global manufacturing and service network in dozens of countries around the world.

Rapid Growth Thanks to Product Flexibility
“Stadler has been building all kinds of trains – high-speed trains, regional trains and trams – for over 75 years,” adds Christopher Chen, Director of The Penetron Group. “The opening of the company’s newest train manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, underlines their incredible growth and ability to develop modular and tailor-made rolling stock very quickly.”

The 230,000 square-feet (21,000 m2), million facility is less than two miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Situated on a 62-acre site, the facility comprises multiple halls (each about 45,000 square feet/4,100 m2) and was completed in about 18 months by the Wadsworth Construction Company.

Making Concrete Resistant to Deterioration
The concrete used for the facility’s raft slab, or frost-protected shallow foundation, was supplied by American Eagle, the project’s ready-mix supplier. Treated with PENETRON ADMIX to protect against the groundwater levels at the site, the concrete is now resistant to concrete deterioration caused by chemical attack, freeze-thaw cycles and corrosion, while withstanding hydrostatic pressure at the site.

“Added to concrete during batching and unaffected by climatic conditions, PENETRON ADMIX can significantly increase concrete durability and service life,” explains Christopher Chen. “Once the admixture is mixed in, it becomes an integral part of the concrete matrix. Thanks to the non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts, the concrete now has the ability to self-heal and seal any micro-cracks, pores and capillaries that may occur in the future.”

The Penetron Group is a leading manufacturer of specialty construction products for concrete waterproofing, concrete repairs and floor preparation systems. The Group operates through a global network, offering support to the design and construction community through its regional offices, representatives and distribution channels.

Dubai Off Plan Properties: This Is What Professional Investors Do

Why sell off plan?

Property development is expensive so developers and their banks/financiers require some assurance that the units they are going to build will be sought-after by purchasers. Selling early offers a hedge against market correction or market competition. Developers assess commercial risk and will try to remove uncertainty – even at the cost of speculative profit.


Why buy off plan?

Developers are making a hedge while investors are making a call that the market will rise. It is a fact that since Dubai allowed foreigners to purchase Freehold property, almost every residential property investor who has taken a long-term view has made a sound investment, subject to the inevitable peaks and troughs that always appear along the way.


How do I form an investment strategy?

There is no easy answer as its mainly a matter of personal choice. Your budget will be one of the biggest influences though you must also consider your exit strategy, plus the length of time you plan to hold your investment and the cost of holding. The strategies are:


  • Buy to Sell (Flip)

Pay your deposit, make the instalments and sell your contract before completion.


  • Buy to Hold (Let)

Let the property on completion and collect the rental income, pay running costs and retain the profit.


Where to buy?

This has to be a matter of personal choice and your budget, to a large extent, will determine what and where. However, there are three categories to consider:


  • Established areas

The advantage here is that there should always be a ready market for either a re-sale or letting, however capital growth is generally restricted to the mood of the local market.

  • Projects From Reputed & Trusted Developers

Here are some top trending off plan projects in Dubai

Expo Golf Villas by ΕMAAR

Beachfront Living Marina Vista By EMAAR

Madinat Jumeirah Living Dubai by DUBAI HOLDING

  • Up–and-coming developments

Normally close to or within an established area where, for any number of reasons, the circumstances of the district are about to improve.

  • Future development areas

Buyers are making the greatest speculation and the view has to be that the district will become an up-and-coming area before ultimately turning into an established area.


When to buy?

Forecasting any market is always a difficult judgement call and the purchase of an off plan property is no exception – ultimately there are no guarantees.

Most investors like to buy at a time when prices are thought to be on the rise, or preferably when they are on a slow steady increase. Purchasers can then forecast the capital growth during the time they hold the property and plan a strategy rather than during a period of falling markets or very steep inflation.


When to hold and when to sell?

If you are looking to buy to flip, then it must be remembered that most buyers are looking for a property to occupy in the short term and not something that is unavailable to move into for a number of years. We advise placing a property for re-sale approximately three quarters of the way through the build programme or when it is possible for purchasers to walk into the property and see the aspect, size of rooms and general ambience of the completed scheme.

You still may not achieve the full value but you will, if purchased wisely (subject to market conditions), make a good profit on the amount paid to date.


What are the advantages of buying off plan?

For the purchaser, the potential upside of buying properties off plan is considerable. By purchasing at the earliest opportunity, the time difference between initially securing the contract with a fixed price against the value at completion can be significant and this upside is your instant profit.

Furthermore, by securing your unit(s) in the earliest phase, you can secure the style and type of property that matches your investment criteria and, in some instances, can influence the direction and specification of the finished property(ies). Looking at the pure financial implications of the transaction, you are paying a deposit and further instalments to purchase the property whilst enjoying the inflationary trends on 100% of the capital value.

Ramtech Completes Modular Building for Temporary Flying Squadron Facility at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, OK

Design-build commercial modular construction firm Ramtech Building Systems of Mansfield, Texas has announced that the company has completed a 17,284 square foot Temporary Flying Squadron Facility for the 33d Flying Training Squadron at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma. Procured using a five-year operating lease, the single-story modular building complex will be used for pilot training as part of a program aimed at increasing the graduation rate to address the shortage of pilots that currently exists within the U.S. Air Force. Ramtech worked with the 71st Mission Support Group and ASRCC, Vance AFB's Base Operations Support contractor to develop the project. The L-shaped relocatable modular building provides space for eight training classrooms, 15 offices, four operations rooms, a squadron briefing room, conference room, and a reception area. The facility's exterior was designed with R-Panel metal siding and a TPO membrane roof.

San Francisco Restaurant Avoids Rising Rent by Purchasing Building with SBA 504 Loan from TMC Financing

TMC Financing, a commercial real estate lender specializing in SBA 504 loans for growing businesses, helped owners of Plow to secure .5 million in total project cost through the SBA 504 loan program. The funds were used to purchase a 4,000 square foot mixed-use property in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.

Plow is owned by the husband and wife team of Joel Bleskacek and Maxine Siu, who fittingly met at a restaurant close to 20 years ago. In 2010, while on a break from the restaurant scene, Joel and Maxine discovered a vacant architect studio within their own neighborhood of Potrero Hill and took a leap of faith. Armed with a shared love for food and wine, the pair signed a lease to open their own restaurant, Plow.

According to Joel and Maxine, Plow is a tribute to timeliness recipes accompanied with California cooking and warm hospitality. The restaurant is an extension of their home where they often entertain friends and family. Gayot recognized Plow’s welcoming feel and said walking into the restaurant felt like coming home.

After learning about the low down payment and low interest rate of the 504 loan, Joel and Maxine knew that owning was within reach and knew it was something they needed to do. However, in the Bay Area, it’s not always that easy. The owners didn’t want to let go of their property but Joel and Maxine remained persistent. After four years, they agreed to sell. Joel and Maxine purchased the building they were previously leasing with only a 10 percent down payment by utilizing the SBA 504 Program.

“Owning the property gives us long term security for Plow,” explains Joel. “We have peace of mind knowing that the building is ours. We don’t have to worry about increased rent or losing our lease.

“Owning also encourages us to make improvements to the building, as those improvements become equity in the long run,” continues Joel.

The acquired property, located at 1297-1299 18th St in San Francisco, is comprised of the restaurant space, five apartment units and two garages. The restaurant occupies 75 percent of the property, Joel and Maxine collect rent on four of the residential units and Plow uses the remaining square footage for storage and office space.

“Working with TMC was fantastic. Even though we had a fair amount of experience in the real estate world, they were very patient and willing to take the extra time to make sure we understood each step of the process,” states Joel.

Joel and Maxine have a lot of feats to be proud of, including opening a neighborhood gem that regularly has over an hour wait, being coined one of the best brunches in SF, getting added to the list of 100 things you must eat in SF before you die, and being a part of SF’s greatest hits list. TMC is proud to have played a part in their most recent feat of purchasing an official home for Plow.

About TMC Financing

TMC is an SBA Premier Certified Lender and has funded projects worth more than billion across California and Nevada, resulting in the creation of an estimated 60,000 jobs. TMC has worked with restaurant owners and business leaders for over 35 years. TMC can help you find the financing that is best to purchase a building or equipment for your restaurant or business.

Fyoosion Startup Launches Direct To Consumer (DTC) Business Model

Almost every company now has a presence on social media. If your company doesn’t have one, you are clearly in an ever decreasing minority.

At the same time, the power and reach of social media must be leveraged properly to get the best out of such engagements. It is a fact that while many companies use social technologies, just a few actually achieve the full potential benefit.

Engage With Your Audience More Effectively

To know about the full advantage of social technologies, you must know how to engage with the right audience in the right place. Social media engagement can be used to create more relevant and profitable relationships with customers. The reach of these services are immense and not having a presence on social media is akin to giving the race to your competitors on a platter.

Social media integration can easily increase productivity according to online marketing experts. You can increase staff efficiency by as much as 25 per cent through social media integration.

Social networks for staff members can make the workforce more dynamic and productive. It can also train them to work in an online social environment. Communicating through a social network with colleagues can provide the necessary experience for effective social media engagement and also helps you communicate better with customers.

Establish a Better Communication Platform with Business Partners

One of the least explored areas of social media integration is connecting with the network of suppliers, dealers and clients. Just a handful of companies have the technology to be entirely self-sufficient in communication systems. Social media can provide the ideal platform to communicate with other companies. It can help achieve high efficiency in business-to-business which goes way beyond with emails and calls. Social media integration such as Fyoosion can help establish cross-company private social networks.

Social media integration can be brought to any site with built-in comments feature. It can be used to initiate product reviews or add comment streams, post blogs and lots more.
