This year’s event, sponsored jointly by the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association and Home Channel News, will take place Oct. 26 to 28 at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio. 


“This industry is ready to break out of the doldrums,” said Jim Reynolds, PDIS managing director. “The best minds in the industry will gather again this year in San Antonio to share their ideas.”


In addition to more networking opportunities than in years past, the event will feature an educational lineup designed to empower the attendees and their businesses.


Among the highlights: 


• Forces of change in distribution: Guy Blissett, the wholesale distribution lead for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, will present a keynote address on changing distribution models, with lessons from the best in distribution. 


• Standout sales and leadership: Connie Podesta, the president of Connie Podesta Inc./Standout, will discuss optimum leadership for today’s business environment.


• The 2010 census and the impact on residential construction:
 David Vandenbroucke from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Greg Brooks, president of BSCi, review the data to help steer companies toward a recovery.

Cedar Creek to purchase wood wholesaler

BY By Brae Canlen

Cedar Creek Wholesale, a building material distributor based in Oklahoma City, has agreed to purchase Wholesale Wood Products of Dothan and Birmingham, Ala. Financial details of the transaction were not revealed.

Wholesale Wood Products serves five southeastern states from two locations in Alabama and specialized in western red cedar and cypress. 

Cedar Creek has 12 locations in 17 states across the Midwest, Mid-south and Southeast.

“This move backfills Cedar Creek’s current coverage area in the Southeast between our current Tennessee and North Carolina branches and further underscores our commitment to growing the footprint of Cedar Creek," said Bill Adams, CEO of Cedar Creek.

I think it is great to opt for building buildings that are energy efficient. Being energy efficient is vital for us as well as for the environment. But no matter what, we have to find ways to save energy. In your houses do not keep the light on, or the ac on while leaving the room.

It's really great to know that the reputed Power Home Remodeling Group has expanded its operations to Marlborough. House remodeling is a tiresome job. You need to arrange things in order to complete the job successfully. The thing I hate most is the junk, piled up during the process of renovation. But we are fortunate enough that we have junk removal services like junk removal MD with us.

New-construction windows of
New-construction windows of recent vintage typically have a "nailing fin" along the outer frame. This fin provides a surface so that the window can be nailed in from the outside of the home before the application of flashing, siding or brick and stone veneers. Most replacement windows are manufactured without this fin so that they can be installed with minimal disruption to the existing trim, siding, sheetrock or exterior veneer.
