Open house, education credits bring contractors together

An open house that put about two dozen United Building Supply contractors together with several vendors, as well as a 3.5-credit continuing education class, turned into a big win for everyone.

The open house, held at Breaking Bread in Sheboygan, was the first time in several years that UBS has provided an opportunity for contractors to get the educational credits they need.

The educational component was led by Tom Harris of OSI sealant. As part of the course, volunteers from the class took a turn using OSI caulk on a window and also worked together to install a sliding patio door in a temporary frame.

Unsung heroes: Soffit, fascia and trim

What is one thing all builders know that many homeowners don’t? The purpose and function of soffit and fascia.

Soffit is the underside of the roof, sort of like the skin that covers your eaves — without it, rafter beams would be visible. Covering them with soffit gives the house a unified, tidy look and protects the rafters from the elements.

Fascia, the band that runs horizontally under the roof’s edge, typically goes hand-in-hand with soffit, and United Building Supply offers fascia in two sizes and a wide variety of colors. We offer LP Smartside Soffit products, which are an efficient and economical alternative to MDO and plywood soffits. Soffit options are available in three of LP’s product collections, each with a range of styles and profiles.

In addition, we have 35 colors of trim coil in stock to make sure builders have exactly what they need when they need to match aluminum trim with siding or windows. Our aluminum trim is made by Alsco Building Products, one of the industry’s leading manufacturers.

A Quality Deck, Just in Time for Spring

AZEK Decking from United Building Supply Inc.

One of the most inviting elements of any home is the outdoor deck. From hosting parties in the backyard to simply sipping coffee while watching the sunrise on a brisk morning – the deck affords a homeowner extra space without forcing them to incur a dramatic increase in upkeep. The right deck is appealing, physically enduring, and adds to the home in a way that makes one hard-pressed to imagine it any other way! Oftentimes, homeowners have a backyard that is underutilized, and a well-placed deck can open up that space and make it much more highly usable. The truth of the matter is, though, that not all decks are made equally. Wood decks can be stained, rot, and deteriorate over time.

Here at United Building Supply Inc., great decking suppliers are something of a specialty for us. We proudly carry AZEK Products – a brilliant coalition of design and beauty. Their decks are made of the finest materials, and feature the optimum choice of low maintenance decking. Made with a cellular pvc formulation, AZEK decks are stain resistant – helping you avoid the cleanup of spilled wine, fruit punch, and even hamburger grease. This is a revolutionary surface that beats all other decking options, from wood to composite.

The Brilliance of Azek Decks

The true advantage of Azek Decks is in their design. AZEK decks meet the demands of consumers, and then some. Essentially, they eliminate the headaches of traditional wood and composite decking, allowing homeowners to fully enjoy the deck for many years to come.

Add Curb Appeal with a Deck

deck

A Good Deck Provides a Breath of Fresh Air

The advantages of a deck are almost too many to count. A deck attached to a home is an immediate source of euphoria. Adding a deck to a property can mean many things – perhaps the homeowner is looking to take advantage of a spacious backyard, or perhaps they are seeking to add more to the front of their home and interact with passers-by. Either way, a deck adds an element of design that can beget other small projects such a patio door or concrete work in the backyard. Just think, you could build your client a small pathway from a separate back door to the deck, or have stepping stones that lead to a pool, a patch of trees, or even a garden. The possibilities of extra projects are nearly endless, and provide you with the chance to upsell, and make the most of your building acumen.

Front Porch or Backyard Deck

Decks have a certain versatility that is unmatched, because they can be put on the front or back parts of the house. Even more than that, the size of the deck lends it to a variety of activities. Will there be room for a fire pit? A simple setup of table and chairs? Or perhaps you want a larger area to canvass, and include heaters and room for a DJ or bar. At the end of the day, the deck is what you make of it, and by selling it to the homeowner with the right words and right tact, you and your company can reap the rewards.

Their windows are made of the best materials and can be easily blended into the look of a traditional or modern home.

A bow window is designed to let in more natural light, effectively harnessing the light from the sun to keep the home well lit. From an environmental standpoint, these two styles of window have a purpose that goes beyond their visual appeal.

El Niño Is Coming to Wisconsin: Get Your Clients’ Exterior Siding, Insulation Fixed Now!

winter

Cold Weather Ahead

With all the changing climate patterns, it’s difficult to know what exactly will happen during the winter of 2015-2016, but all experts agree: it’s going to be a doozy. What this means for Wisconsin? All signs from the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center (www.cpc.noaa.gov) point to a classic eastern Pacific model for our region, based on the El Niño weather patterns from previous seasons and their results.

What to Expect

This means cooler weather for September through November throughout the Great Lakes area is probable. The more interesting prognostication concerns warmer temperatures for December through February, with variable precipitation. The summer to follow will also likely have unusual temperatures and rain levels, as is typical after this kind of weather pattern.

Even if you’re not a fan of newfangled climate experts-go with the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is also predicting a cold and snowy winter. While Wisconsin is used to rough winters, this may be one for the record books.

Building Materials for your Home

So what’s the bottom line? Now is the time to replace damaged exterior siding, insulation, old decking, and even soffit, fascia and trim. We carry a full range of products to suit a variety of tastes and preferences. We also make it a point to stock only the brands people trust, proven to endure. With more than two decades serving the Sheboygan, Washington and Ozaukee counties, we know our industry and we know our customers.

The winds, snows and rain this season promise to batter even the most well-made house, so don’t take a chance on anything less than the best. With United Building Supply Inc., you know you’re getting the finest quality every time, on everything we sell. Count on it, no matter the weather.
