    Restoration Builders Continues its Explosive Growth with the Acquisition of Chicago-Based NRC Roofing and Restoration – Yahoo Finance - December 5, 2019 by admin

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --Restoration Builders, Inc.("Restoration Builders" or "The Company") today announced another asset acquisition as it adds Chicago-based NRC Roofing and Restoration, LLC. ("NRC") to its rapidly growing network.

    The insurance restoration industry has exploded to $210B+. Restoration Builders, Inc. was founded in 2017 in response to this massive growth and increasing demand. Over the past two years, they've focused on consolidating existing repair and restoration companies, which are located throughout the United States. To date, The Company has acquired 15 privately held businesses with projected revenue that will top $100 Million in 2019.

    MichaelFlores had been working in the financial industry when the economy took a downturn. He was quickly recruited by a roofing and siding company. While he felt he'd found his niche, he noticed the pain points of the roofing industry. Often, he witnessed a communication breakdown between the property owner, the insurance company, and the contractor. As a result, some insurance claims started and ended in confusion, missteps, and a loss of confidence in the contractor.That experience motivated Michaelto create a roofing company that operated with integrity one that homeowners and employees alike could trust and count on.

    NRC launched in 2010 out of Michael's Chicago apartment, with just two employees. Today, the company has grown to a team of 100 employees and contractors collaboratively working under the multifaceted NRC organization. This group that has generated over $100 million in revenue and restored more than 7,500 properties to their original condition or better from weather-related damage.The NRC team lives by their motto: they're not satisfied until their clients are satisfied.

    "It is my great pleasure to welcome NRC to the team," commented John Lorenz, Chairman and CEO of Restoration Builders, Inc. "Michael and his results-driven team built a restoration company that takes care of client's homes with the same level of care and detail that they would give to their own property. Their core values of commitment, teamwork, respect, integrity and professionalism align perfectly with what the Restoration Builders network is all about."

    Of the $49 Billion roofing contractors' industry, the roofing repair sector is among the fastest-growing. It is currently fragmented and primarily comprised of local, privately held companies. The majority of roofing customers are insurance policy holders using their coverage to fund a repair or replacement.

Their mission is to protect, restore and build properties, strengthen families and support the community. They are committed locally and ready to serve wide scale for disaster response.

    ‘Free Daniel Stendel’ Hearts backed by Barnsley fans in compensation wrangle over new boss – Daily Record - December 5, 2019 by admin

    Hearts' appointment of Daniel Stendel has been delayed due to a last-minute demand for compensation from former club Barnsley, but it seems their fans are siding with the Jambos.

    The deal to make the German Craig Leveins successor has been agreed, but Ann Budge must come to an arrangement with the Tykes over any potential payment before he can be confirmed in the Tynecastle hot seat.

    Its been five weeks since Levein was relieved of his duties and fans have grown frustrated at the length of time being taken to appoint a replacement.

    The wait was expected to be over this week, but Barnsley co-chairman Paul Conways assertion that they will be due money from the Edinburgh club after Stendel is appointed has held things up a little longer.

    We still have a valid contract with Daniel Stendel until the end of the season, he told the Daily Mail. There is already a tampering issue with us concerning his existing contract.

    And if anybody else is tampering with our rights, we are going to expect compensation.

    It seems Barnsley fans are just as annoyed at their board as some Hearts fans following the late claim. Conways popularity is already low in South Yorkshire after he got rid of fans favourite Stendel in October.

    And this latest move hasnt gone down well with them either, with many keen to see Stendel succeed even though hes left. Theyve not been shy in criticising Conway for his claim online.

    Redhelen posted: So why compensation then as we're not losing out financially? Its not as though we have no manager, the owners wanted this change.

    lk311 added: It does feel like either penny pinching or bloody mindness but from a legal standpoint they are right.

    "As you said later most companies would be glad to get him off payroll (unless there is a strategic aspect).

    Some feel Stendel is been treated poorly after what he achieved at Oakwell, on yer tyke wrote: They must really hate Stendel these owners, sacked him and now holding off his career.

    Surely for what he's done for this football club, earning the club 6 million in just promotion prize money not to mention the coaching of players to shoot up their sell on fees. You'd think the club would just give the man his money and let him get on with his career.

    Others believe this could be the reason for the short and sharp announcement of Stendels departure, without the usual platitudes usually seen when a manager departs.

    KFC questioned: I guess it helps to explain the utterly bizarre statement that they 'separated' with Stendel, rather than any of the usual terms above, but what other options are there?

    If as others have suggested they put him on 'gardening leave' and still have him on the payroll, then why wouldn't all clubs do that when sacking a manager, so that they could gain compensation when they want to go elsewhere?

    "There'd have to be some exceptional circumstances here would there not?

    Stendel had planned to be at Tynecastle for Wednesday nights Scottish Premiership clash against Livingston, but that now wont be the case given the latest developments.

    2019 House Siding Costs | Average Prices To Replace & Reside - November 23, 2019 by admin

    Siding Cost

    The average cost to side a house ranges from $4,300 to $15,700, or $3 to $11 per square foot depending on the size of home and materials used. Vinyl siding prices average $7,100 for a 2,000 square foot home. The cost to replace siding will add $1,000 to $3,000 for the removal of existing siding.

    Despite the costs, replacing the exterior siding on your home can update and increase the value of your home, add curb appeal, and make it more attractive to buyers. The biggest reason to install siding is to keep out moisturekeeping your home dry and free from rot and mold goes a long way to keeping you and your family healthy.

    You can install siding on the exterior of your home with any number of different materials, from aluminum to stone. With such a wide variety of sidings to choose from, the siding cost will vary widely, but youre assured of finding a quality siding that will fit your budget. Let's take a look at all the siding options and their prices.

    House siding installation costs from $3,000 to $26,000 with most homeowners spending between $4,293 and $15,741. New siding costs range from $1 to $13 per square foot depending on the size and shape of the home and the siding materials selected.

    Its cost-effective to hire professional siding contractors who have the knowledge and experience to install it properly and efficiently. They have all the right equipment, tools, working method, and will save you money in the long run.

    Siding costs between $3 and $11 per square foot with most homeowners spending from $3 to $8 for professional installation. Siding is sold on a per-square basis (100 square feet) with prices ranging from $300 to $1,100.

    The chart below is based on a house being a perfect square and one story. Your home could be very long on one side and short on the other, thereby giving you completely different numbers, because the perimeter is so different. Without precise measurements, it can be hard to estimate exterior square footage.

    The cost of siding materials ranges from $0.73 to $14.45 per square foot with most homeowners spending about $2. Vinyl, aluminum, wood, stucco, and fiber cement siding each cost $1 to $3 per square foot on average. More expensive options are brick and stone at $9 per square foot.

    Labor costs to install siding range from $0.94 to $1.94 per square foot for vinyl, wood, aluminum, and fiber cement. The more expensive labor costs of brick, stucco, or stone range from $3 to $13 per square foot.

    Labor prices are mainly related to the difficulty or ease of cutting, nailing, or applying the material in use. There are many additional costs per linear foot for adding trim, foam backing, corners, drip caps, soffits, fascia, channel supports, and starter supports. The prices below are for installing the siding boards alone.

    Return to Top

    The average cost to replace siding on your home is $5,000 to $12,000 because of adding in the expense of $1,000 to $3,000 for removal and disposal of the old siding. This cost will vary depending on the size of the home, the type of siding used, and how much labor costs are, plus the additional cost factors mentioned above. Siding replacement will improve the resale value of your home.

    The average cost to reside a 2,000 square foot house is $7,000 for vinyl, $8,000 for stucco, $6,000 for wood, and $15,000 for brick. Add about 35% to the removal cost if you have a two-story home, plus more for each awning, canopy, storm window or door, gutters, and pair of shutters that must be removed and then reinstalled. Add more again for all the accessories needed and additional work on corners, trim, and soffits. The residing prices below include all the extra expenses.

    Siding prices are calculated based on a few different factors.

    Return to Top

    Before starting on your exterior siding project, it's a good idea to get a rough estimate of your overall cost first.

    You can use an online siding calculator or estimate what it might cost to reside your home by doing some careful measuring yourself. If you have the blueprints from your house, you can figure out the exterior square footage quite nicely from those instead.

    Area of a square or rectangle = height by width

    Area of a triangle = highest height by width divided by 2

    Siding is sold on a per square basis where each square is 100 square feet. Calculating will help determine how much siding youll need, but there are also the supporting aspects of installing the siding. For example, when installing vinyl siding, you will need starter strips, J-channel trim, under sill trim, and utility trim. Youll also need the insulation wrap and the tape to secure that wrap, and nails to put up the panels of vinyl siding.

    Now that you have a rough estimate of your home's siding needs, let's compare different materials and pricing for your siding job.

    Vinyl siding prices run between $3 and $11 per square foot installed or $5,000 to $16,000 for a 2,000-square-foot house, but your final cost depends on the quality of siding you choose. Vinyl siding prices are tied to the thickness of each panel, with the thicker panels being more expensive but also more durable. Vinyl siding is manufactured with color throughout the panel, so that scratches wont show.

    Vinyl siding installation costs $0.90 to $1.20 per square foot for labor. Here are the average material costs from Menards, Home Depot, and Lowes:

    Vinyl siding is the least expensive siding product, and it is also not expensive to install, but the higher-priced vinyl is not always the best quality vinyl. The best quality vinyl is the thickest product at .052, compared to the lowest quality with a thickness of .040. Vinyl siding comes in many colors and textures, and many times a custom color can be made at little to no extra cost.

    Vinyl siding requires little in the way of maintenance. It never needs sanding, painting, or sealing. The only thing it needs is an occasional spray with the hose to wash off accumulated dust and dirt. A yearly cleaning with a soft brush and a water/vinegar solution will take care of most mold and mildew.

    Wood siding costs between $2 and $6 per square foot installed or from $3,000 to $8,000 for a 2,000-square-foot house. Wood siding is warm and classic, usually seen in the form of clapboard or cedar shakes; and its very long lasting, as long as its properly maintained. Its also an eco-friendly choice, as most siding is harvested from sustainable forests. If youre concerned about the eco-impact, check to see if the Forest Stewardship Council certifies the company that makes the siding.

    Wood siding is the siding of choice for many people, but it does require regular maintenance. The recommendation is:

    Staining the wood protects it from moisture damage. If the paint is not sealed (with a clear sealer), it can crack and peel, which lets moisture in, and thats when the damage begins.

    Its easy enough to change the color of your home if its painted, you just choose a new color and paint the house. However, if you stain the wood one color, its nearly impossible to change the color with a new stain. Stain penetrates the wood, permanently changing the color of the wood and protecting it from moisture.

    Cedar shake siding costs between $4 and $8 per square foot installed. A typical 2,000-square-foot, one-story house will cost $5,700 to $11,500 for professional installation. Cedar shakes come in several natural colors, depending on which kind of cedar tree it's cut from. They are naturally resistant to pests and mold and do not need to be painted, although they should be sealed.

    While cedar siding can be left untreated for a more natural look, in some climates this may leave the wood susceptible to mold or pests, after time. It is an expensive option for siding, but the beauty of it is unsurpassed. Cedar shake siding is chosen by the consumer more concerned with the look of the home rather than the bottom line. Installation is also more expensive.

    Composite and engineered wood siding costs from $2 to $4 per square foot on average not including installation. Prices range between $4,750 to $9,450 to replace siding on a 2,000 square foot 2-story home. Composite is very strong and durable, withstanding most weather conditions, even extreme heat or cold. Engineered wood siding or composite siding gives the beauty of wood without the maintenance work of sanding, painting, sealing, and staining.

    Engineered wood is a viable alternative to the cost and maintenance of real wood siding. It looks more like real wood than vinyl and is stronger and more durable. Engineered wood siding will never deal with pests or mold and mildew. Excellent warranties are available, many going up to 3050 years, and are transferable to new owners if you sell your home. Eco-aware consumers will appreciate the fact that engineered siding is made from wood scraps and waste, ensuring every part of the tree is used and not discarded.

    Aluminum siding costs $5 to $9 per square foot, including installation, and the average 2,000-square-foot home will cost $4,000 to $16,000 total. Aluminum is the next cheapest siding option to vinyl. It comes in flat or corrugated sheets. Its possible the new aluminum siding might be installed over your old siding, thereby saving you some money. Check with your contractor.

    An affordable option for siding your home, it may not be the most attractive option with its metal look. Aluminum siding gives an industrial appearance and may be better used on commercial buildings than on private homes. It requires little maintenance besides a yearly washing off with water. Stains can easily be soft-scrubbed off with soapy water.

    Metal siding costs $2.04 to $9.60 per square foot for just the materials or $3.50 to $9.50 per square foot installed. A 2,000-square foot house will cost about $10,000 to $15,000 to reside. Pricing depends on how thick it is and how its designed, plus insulation.

    Metal is strong and durable. The steel used in siding is 100% recyclable, and it is nearly maintenance free, only needing a wash with a hose once a year or so. While homeowners do not usually desire metal siding to have rust spots, there is metal siding that is purposely rusted for the architectural element factor, called Corten Steel Siding. This siding also comes in corrugated forms.

    While considered to be nearly maintenance free, steel siding can be given a coat of rust-resistant compoundespecially good if you live in a humid or coastal climate. It is stronger and more durable than aluminum siding. Steel siding is textured to mimic wood grain, but it is still steel and will look like it.

    Stucco siding costs $4 to $7 per square foot installed with most homeowners spending $6,000 to $11,000 for a typical 2,000 square foot house. Stucco is considered a green product because it is comprised of all-natural products. It is very durable, and if well-maintained, it can last decades. Traditional stucco is made of cement, sand, or lime, but todays stucco can have an added epoxy to eliminate cracking and chips.

    A good stucco installer can be hard to find, and there can be a lot of prep work that needs to be done before the stucco can be applied. You cannot put stucco over existing siding. You can add color to the final layer of stucco and eliminate the need for painting. Stucco can also be painted over if you change your mind.

    Fiber cement siding (Hardie Plank) costs $5 to $11 per square foot installed. The average 2,000 square foot house will cost $7,000 to $16,000 to side with fiber cement. Its made of wood pulp, cement, clay, and sand, which gives it an eco-friendly reputation. It can be molded to look like any type of sidingshingles, stucco, masonry, or wood. You can paint it, and a variety of textures are available.

    Fiber cement siding should be treated much like wood. Cut ends need to be sealed, and seams need to be caulked. It should be checked every few years to see if it needs to be re-caulked in order to keep moisture out. Keep the siding clean (use a garden hose to wash off dust and dirt) to avoid problems with mold and mildew. Mold and mildew are unlikely to happen, but if enough dirt accumulates, the odds go up.

    Brick siding costs $7 to $15 per square foot to install while stone siding costs $17 to $30 per square installed. The average 2,000 sqft. home will cost $10,000 to $42,000 to side with brick or stone. This is for a brick veneer, not a brick or stone house built brick by brick. You can also use faux brick or stone siding as an architectural element, which will cut your cost while still giving you the look of brick or stone.

    Real Brick & Stone Siding

    Faux Brick & Stone Siding

    Both siding and faux siding options of brick and stone are more cost effective than a full brick or stone installation, but they are still expensive when compared to other siding options. Neither one requires any great level of maintenance besides a twice-yearly washing with the hose. They are both classic looks on the homes exterior and present a solid appearance. Solid stone and brick homes can last for centuries. They also act as an additional layer of insulation and protect the home from noise pollution.

    Board and batten siding costs between $480 and $740 per square. The average home will cost from $7,000 to $11,000 for siding materials alone. A simple but classic type of siding, its typically constructed from real wood, but it can also be built from engineered wood, saving on costs. The installation is classified as simple and straightforward. Only standard woodworking tools are needed.

    Board and batten siding gives a classic look to a house, and it is making a comeback. What used to be referred to as barn siding has now reached new levels of elegance. It needs all the maintenance of real woodit must be treated, or it will mold, rot, or become victim to termites and other pests. It must be retreated every few years. If youre not into all that maintenance, this look can also be achieved with fiber cement boards.

    Concrete siding costs between $3 and $5 per square foot installed, or from $4,290 to $7,160 for an average 2,000-square-foot home. It is not fiber cement siding but plain concrete which is an excellent insulating form of siding, but its weight makes it more complicated to install.

    Concrete siding doesnt require a lot of maintenance. It should be sealed to keep moisture out, which will wick to your house. If you paint it (and it is fully paintable), it will need to be repainted as often as painted wood siding. If you keep it clean and there should be few problems with it. Concrete is very customizable and can be formed into any look you wanttiles, logs, boards. Its .

    Liquid spray-on siding costs $0.60 per square foot for the materials or about $860 to cover a 2,000-square-foot house. It is a vinyl product that doesnt need to be measured and cut; its simply sprayed on like paint. It retains its color and texture for years. Liquid spray-on siding is durable and low maintenance.

    Spray-on liquid vinyl siding is an elastic-type of covering and as such, it covers every nook and cranny, but it also moves with your house as it contracts and expands. When dry it has a glossy look, so care should be taken to keep tree branches from rubbing against it, as this will cause visible abrasions in the vinyl coating.

    Liquid vinyl siding requires little maintenance beyond a yearly washing with water. Use this time also to inspect the coating, keeping your eye on any possible cracks, peeling, or blistering.

    Insulated vinyl siding costs $4 to $12 per square foot or between $7,000 and $17,000 to install on a 2,000 sqft. home. Insulated siding combines insulation materials with sidingvinyl panels are lined with a foam backing. Also, sheathing materials can be installed beneath the new siding, against the exterior wall of the home.

    The layer of foam adds stability to the vinyl panel, making it a little easier to install. It requires very little maintenance. Whatever maintenance youd do for regular vinyl siding is sufficient for insulated vinyl siding. While insulated vinyl siding may not add a great deal of R-value to your home, the low cost can outweigh the insulation rating.

    Return to Top

    The cost to paint siding is the same as painting a wood-sided house at about $1.50 to $2.88 per square foot.

    Window replacement costs about $7,500 for a four-bedroom house. Replacing the siding will cost approximately $8,500 for a total of $16,000 to replace siding and windows together.

    Typically, the average cost to side a 2-story house with vinyl siding runs $4,500 to $16,000, or about 35% higher than a 1-story. This cost will vary depending on the type of siding used, but vinyl is the most common type of siding used.

    Return to Top

    Depending on the siding you choose and your level of experience as a DIYer, you may very well be able to replace siding yourself, saving some money. But there are definite benefits to hiring a pro, especially if you dont know how to replace siding already.

    Breakdown of 7 contaminated Fairfield sites with map – CT Insider - November 23, 2019 by admin

    FAIRFIELD There are seven locations in Fairfield currently undergoing the process of soil removal and replacement after low levels of materials including arsenic, asbestos and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were detected.

    Testing began at fields and parks across Fairfield after it was found that fill from a contaminated Public Works pile had been used during town construction projects under the management of Julian Enterprises.

    The fill pile linked to Julian Enterprises has become the subject of a criminal case, where the state has charged two town employees and Julians co-owner with illegal dumping and municipal corruption.

    Not every site where contamination was detected used fill from Julian Enterprises. Others traced contamination back to pesticide and chemical usage decades ago.

    Some sites, according to the Connecticut Department of Health, had low enough contamination levels that they were deemed safe for use, but the town decided to clean them up as a precaution.

    Below are each of the locations and a bit of information about their current status. For more information on the topic, see the links at the bottom of this story.

    1. Gould Manor Park: 655 Holland Hill Road

    Contaminated soil must be removed and disposed of at a certified facility. Then it will be filled with certified clean soil and re-tested.

    Initial cleanup has been completed. Re-tests detected elevated arsenic levels in three spots two along the fencing between the sidewalk and baseball field and one next to the pond.

    This area will be dug up and re-tested. The work should be completed in the next few weeks.

    2. Burroughs Park: 940 Burroughs Road

    Contaminated soil must be removed and disposed of at a certified facility. Then it will be filled with certified clean soil and re-tested.

    Low levels of non-friable asbestos were detected at the park.

    Soil excavation was set to be wrapped up by Nov. 16. Engineers are expected to be in the process of replacing and re-testing the soil.

    The work should be completed in the next few weeks.

    3. Jennings Elementary School: 31 Palm Drive

    Remedial action plans are in development.

    Arsenic was detected in the playgrounds chemically-treated wood siding.

    This location is next in line for cleanup, expected to begin in the next few weeks.

    4. Mill Hill Elementary School: 635 Mill Hill Terrace

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were found at the school.

    Remedial action plans are in development.

    5. Jennings Beach playground: 880 South Benson Road

    Arsenic was found at the playground.

    Remedial action plans are in development.

    6. Old Dam Road.
