Create a Legally Defensible Document Retention/Destruction Policy

The February 2015 NARI Legal Corner blog post titled, Build a Record You’ll Be Proud Of, addressed the importance of recordkeeping for contractors and provided practical guidelines for creating project records.


Net Zero Energy Homes

A recent post on NARI’s blog noted that “94% of remodelers are involved in one or more types of energy savings upgrades,” based on a survey of 621 NARI members. These upgrades ranged from duct insulation to high efficiency furnaces. The number one upgrade? Insulating the building envelope.

Rethink Employee Retention

Employers today are facing the fact that we need to keep our older workforce in place longer — and we need to help them stay healthy. Many valuable older workers can stay productive on the job with some modifications in his/her work environment.


Building Profits

As a business owner you want to maximize your profits without sacrificing the quality of your products and services.  Unfortunately, there are as many factors to keep you from being profitable as there are to help you achieve maximum profits.  To increase profits it is important to have the basic tools to understand the different areas in your business that can affect profitability.


Creating a buzz around 2015 CotY awards

In a recent article, Entrepreneur Magazine talked about the value of winning industry-specific awards and advised that businesses that are targeted at a niche group of customers should go after awards that highlight their expertise in that area. Winning an industry award—like NARI’s CotY— can help create a buzz about your business by giving customers something to talk about. Industry awards can be a valuable addition to your marketing arsenal, to reinforce the endorsements from satisfied customers.

I always had it in my mind that I was going to start my own construction business. Growing up, I was fascinated watching my father build our own homes, even though by profession he was a pilot for American Airlines. I became his assistant holding the “trouble” light. I was a sponge wanting to know it all.
