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.

The Beauty of Cedar Without the Upkeep


The Foundry Siding: Born From Nature, Designed For Life

Whether inside a home or out, cedar is a treasured building element in many homes today. It has fantastic curb appeal that is as immersive as it is stunning. The biggest drawback with genuine home features made from cedar is the meticulous, ritual upkeep they require. One company has found a handy solution to that problem, engineering cedar-like shingles that are not only attractive but come maintenance-free too! Unlike its wood counterpart, the Foundry’s shingles never rot, warp, buckle or crack. You can offer customers a choice among a wide selection – from shingles with a subtle grain detail to staggered shakes that carry a bold rustic dimension.

The Foundry Vinyl Cedar Siding

The vinyl siding offered by The Foundry presents an exact portrait of cedar shake and shingle style. The difference between the siding and real cedar is the relative toughness – this vinyl siding is tougher than wood and it is fire-resistant! In addition, this particular brand of siding is engineered for sustainability. Consider for a moment all of the wonderful benefits of vinyl siding: low-maintenance, increased product life, wind and water resistance, color retention, and impervious to insect damage…the evidence supporting the value in purchasing this siding is nearly overwhelming.

A Deck For All Seasons

The Pleasures of an Outdoor Deck in Your Backyard

The deck – one of the flagship elements of any exterior renovation project. Whether you are building a front porch or a backyard patio – the deck is considered something of a luxury. Homeowners can enjoy the outdoors in a leisurely way. On those cool autumn mornings there is nothing quite like enjoying your hot cup of morning coffee as you survey the morning, the dew clinging to the blades of grass, the crisp air on your skin. In many parts of the country a deck is associated with summer: an outdoor bbq, a nightcap on the patio on a warm summer evening. Here in Wisconsin, however, your deck can be used for so much more when the weather is agreeable.

The Technology of Tomorrow, Today: Genovations Decking

The fine folks at Genovations Deck Flooring and Railing have developed a PVC-based decking that is head and shoulders above the competition. From the inside out, their decking is truly special. Built with 100% PVC, there are no foam, fillers or fibers in their decking material – nothing mold can grow on. The surface is just as phenomenal: anti-slip, anti-skid, it does not get slippery when it gets wet. In addition, reflectance have been built into the surface, effectively radiating the heat of the sun. On a bright, hot, sunny day, color for color, their surface temperature is going to be 20-30º cooler than a five quarter deck board. The result? A barefoot friendly surface that is cool to the touch that is low-maintenance and can be installed directly over concrete. The design and engineering of these marvelous deck is so exquisite that the employees at Genovations classify it as “flooring for your deck.”

Decking and So Much More

Here at United Building Supply Inc., the decking options provided by Genovations is but one of the many exterior remodeling products we have available.

Color That Lasts


The Effect of Good Trim on Your Home

There are many elements that combine to create a beautiful home. From the windows and doors, to the paint color and trim, homes are made beautiful by their blend of color, texture, and style. One of the more overlooked parts of a home is the trim. On an aesthetic level, the trim serves to bring out the rich color or colors of the home. But like anything in life, wear and tear will eventually take its toll, and if the trim you use is not of a professional, quality grade, you will inevitably find it deteriorating and depreciating the value of your home. The visual appeal of a home will drop dramatically, which is a negative outcome whether you were planning on selling your home soon or not.

At Alsco Metals Corporation, long-lasting color is simply their bread and butter. They specialize in making homes look their absolute best, and their trim does a magnificent job of bringing out the other colors of the home.
