National Lumber's Family of Companies: National Lumber, Kitchen Views, Reliable Truss, National Millwork, Pro Insulators

Great news for the home improvement industry: Survey says consumers are willing to spend more on home remodeling.

In a recent online survey of 5,000 participants, it looks as though homeowners are willing to spend upwards of 30% of their home’s value to renovate or remodel a part of their home. This figure is higher than recorded percentages of 2007 and 2010 for home remodeling costs, which will be a positive impact on the entire home improvement industry.

The survey was comprised of approximately 70 questions to determine whether the participants would prefer remodeling versus moving from their home. To some degree, all of the participants were interested in some sort of change to their existing home.

Consumers are planning to use more expensive materials, which is projected to scale an average budget of $102,000 on their improvements. Approximately 74% of the respondents plan to hire a general contractor for the work, and more than half of the respondents plan to hire an architect, rather than tackling the remodel or renovations themselves.

Some of the planned projects for these homeowners are larger in scale and include multiple rooms. Right above the halfway mark is the percentage of homeowners who are likely to remodel a kitchen.

Our professionals at National Lumber and Kitchen Views at National Lumber are here to serve you through every phase of remodeling projects. We can supply you with the building supplies you need and the services you deserve. Additionally, our kitchen division has the expertise to work with homeowners on design and selection of materials. Contractors are then provided with detailed plans and materials. One of our designers will follow the project from concept to completion. Kitchen Views at National Lumber, where the designers are pros and the views are yours!

Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction

Have you taken advantage of the green building incentive yet? The Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction is set to expire on December 31, 2013. The program affords building owners deductions on qualifying energy-efficient upgrades done within the last six years. Real estate advocates are in the process of lobbying Congress to extend or expand the program. Read more about the green building incentive in this article by Bendix Anderson, NuWire Investor.

It Takes Teamwork To Build A House

Heritage Construction is building a custom home in Rehoboth, MA using pre-cut rafters from Reliable Truss and Components. Rob Longobardi is the framer in charge.

Jesse M. of Reliable Truss drives the tractor-trailer containing the pre-cut rafters to the jobsite. National Lumber boom truck driver Brian L. out of the New Bedford yard will use the boom to move the materials to the roof area.

It takes teamwork and communication to move materials safely and precisely

Jesse uses the truck-mounted Moffett to unload the materials and precisely place them where needed. In this case, he’s positioning the pre-cut rafters to be taken directly from the Moffett by the boom. The maneuverability of the Moffett allows him to drive forward or sideways as needed.

Brian expertly maneuvers the boom to take the materials from the Moffett and raise them to the framing crew that is waiting to receive them. He makes it look easy, but correctly balancing the weight of the load and accounting for the width of the load as he turns it all takes expertise earned through experience.

Installing the pre-cut rafters on this particular house will take about a week.
