THE WHO’S WHO IN BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION SHOWCASE 2017

Construction Professionals gather in Seattle!

Well the weather was crazy, but hundreds of construction professionals sill made it to Safeco Field on Thursday May 11th for the annual Blue Book Building & Construction Network Showcase, and Chase Construction NW, Inc. was there! The wind relentlessly knocked over signs and banners, but connections were made none the less!

It’s all about the book!

United Recycling & ContainerThe event started off at 12:30 with lunch and an educational seminar at 1:00 on the importance of construction relationships, and how The Blue Book Network can help your company. After our delicious boxed lunch, we heard from the lunch sponsors, United Recycling and Container. They gave an informative presentation about their services, and how recycling can save money on a construction site vs. dumping the unwanted material in a landfill. They then answered questions from the audience such as what material they can and cannot recycle, and what happens to the material once it is Blue Book Network 2017recycled. Next we heard from Jessica Riggio, the regional sales manager at the Blue Book Building & Construction Network®. She gave us an brief history on the Blue Book and how it has helped the industry stay connected over the years. 

The Showcase

Blue Book Network 2017At 2:00pm the showcase began, and what a showcase it was! Overlooking the field at Safeco was endless networking and business opportunities! We spoke with some familiar faces, and met some new ones as well! And just incase lunch wasn’t enough, there were appetizers and drinks aplenty as well! In the construction industry, connection opportunities are important, and the Blue Book provides that with minimal effort from the contractor! The Blue Book Network makes it easy for industry professionals to connect, and the annual Who’s Who Showcase makes it easy to put a face to those connections!

Before Listing Your Home

Why is it important to replace your roof before listing your home?

“It costs money to make money” Is that why a lot of us wait until we are selling our home to make improvements? Well, yes! Certain home improvements can help us GAF Timberline Roof in Federal Waysell our home faster, and get more out of our investments, one of the most important being the roof!! The condition of the roof can not only make or break a sale, but if it is taken care of before listing your home, it can ensure success in today’s housing market.

Reasons you want to take care of your roof before listing your home.

Sell Your Home Faster.

Having a well maintained or newly repaired/replaced roof not only adds curb appeal to your home, but it provides peace of mind. Knowing that they do not have to worry about a potentially expensive project on their new home brings motivation to prospective buyers to move fast!

Ensure the Sell of Your Home.

If you decide to not take on your roof project prior to listing, you will have to lower the price of your home to make up for it. This may seem like a good idea, and you may even get several bidders, as a lower price is more attractive. But the fact of the matter is, getting a lender to agree on the terms of a necessary project will be difficult. If the roof is in need of a major project, the lender will make repairs/replacement a condition of the loan or may not fund at all, and that responsibility usually falls on the seller. At that point, the buyer can back out, and if they don’t, at the very least, the closing date will be extended to accommodate the completion of the project(s). So even if you lower the price, the repairs/re-roof will need to be done anyways, and now the sell of your home is delayed and made more complicated.

Return on Investment.

An instant return on investment is again of course peace of mind, but this time, yours. The peace of mind that there will be no complications added to your sell due to an outdated roof.  You can also use can the new roof as a selling point, and as such, the price can be higher, recouping a large percent of the cost of the roof itself (up to 75%!).

Where to Start

Get a Home Inspection.

Hire a home inspector before selling your home

You will want to start by hiring a local home inspector to evaluate your home. He/she will be able to tell you about all the issues of your home, not only your roof. That way you can prioritize which repairs you will want to tackle. This will give you an accurate idea of what needs to be done on your roof, and if it is something that needs to be taken care of right away. You may even be able to file a claim with your insurance if it is damage done by a storm!

Gather Roofing Estimates.

If the inspector does find issues with the roof, you will want a roofing professional to take a look at it. Since there will be a range in price, depending on what you need done, you will want to gather at least 3 estimates (which are usually free) to make an informed decision. It’s never a good idea to simply choose on price, so you will want to do your homework on what contractor you will want to hire. Are they licensed, bonded, insured? Do they have a good customer rating? Can they offer extended warranties? Have they been in business long? Will they give you references? If the answer is no on any of those questions, move on to the next and save yourself the headache.
