Since 1880, BlueStar has manufactured restaurant-quality, customizable ranges for the home chef, available in over 750 colors and finishes, including this years Pantone Color of the Year – Radiant Orchid

Online PR News – 03-January-2014 – Add a little sizzle to the kitchen and a bit of fashion runway flair with a customized BlueStar professional gas range decked out and looking radiant in the newly announced Pantone 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.

This warm purple features pink hues and fuchsia undertones and is this years IT color according to Pantone, a leading authority on the hues used in paint, fabrics and manufacturing, which describes Radiant Orchid as a modern and surprisingly versatile shade. Look for variations of this color in everything from fashion to housewares. Deeper shades of purple have been on the upswing as well; Sherwin-Williams recently announced that its 2014 Color of the Year is a murky violet called “exclusive plum.”

In addition to clothing and accessories, color also is making a splash in kitchens for people who not only take cooking seriously, but who want to make a personal design statement in the most treasured and active area of the house. While refrigerators tend to be covered up with wood panels, the range has become the last stronghold of design in appliances. BlueStar’s unparalleled 750+ colors and finishes make this easy. People are discovering that small bursts of color can make a kitchen pop, and there’s no more predominant accent than a range, says BlueStar Vice President of Marketing Eliza Sheffield.

Consider a range in a vivid shade, or add just a splash of color to a stainless steel range with Radiant Orchid knobs. BlueStar offers consumers nearly unlimited customization options that enable you to really personalize your statement kitchen, says Sheffield.

No matter what the current color rage, BlueStars color palette of over 750 colors and finishes is made to complement any kitchen dcor, and to reflect any fashion trend in the world of color.

Can Roofing Be Done in the Winter?

Can Roofing Be Done in the Winter?

The general consensus seems to be that it is best to have roofing repairs and replacements done in the spring, before inclement weather becomes an obstacle; but, can roofing be done in the winter? Indeed, many home owners find they have no choice but to contact their roofer when a leak or other problem arises during the winter. Moreover, in many cases, people are not even aware of the need for repair until harsh weather makes it apparent. So the short answer to this question is yes, it is possible and sometimes necessary for roofing work to be done in the winter, but there are many factors to consider.

Automatic Gate Resource Center to Offer Automated Gate Certification CEUs

Automatic Gate Resource Center to Offer Automated Gate Certification CEUs

Automatic Gate Resource Center is set to grant Continuing Education Units via one of its online courses. Certified Automated Gate Operator Installers can access the always available online course at their convenience.

Online PR News – 29-January-2014 – One of Automatic Gate Resource Centers (AGRC) online courses now qualifies to grant Continuing Education Units to Certified Automated Gate Operator Installers looking to maintain their certification.

The Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA), a non-profit educational organization, sponsors the Certified Automated Gate Operator Installer program. Along with other stipulations, the rigorous program requires those hoping to receive certification pass a comprehensive exam on topics such as UL 325, installation of gate operators, and electrical troubleshooting, among others. Should test-takers pass the exam with the minimum 80% passing score while also meeting all other program requirements, they are then granted Gate Operator Installer Certification for a period of three years.

As part of maintaining their certification, during the three-year renewal cycle, installers must demonstrate a commitment to their professional development by earning 9 Continuing Education Units, where 1 hour of education equals 1 CEU.

One of the things Ive heard from busy professionals in various industries, is how beneficial just-in-time training is to them, says Giselle Fuerte, co-founder of Automatic Gate Resource Center, whose many hats include that of Chief Technology Officer and Education Director. The fact that AGRC offers an online CEU course means that certified installers can complete the CEU requirement on their computer, any time theyd like. Its always at their convenience, she adds.

AGRCs always available CEU offering stands in stark contrast to traditional classroom training that may only be held once annually or in distant cities and states.

AGRC educates and connects consumers and gate professionals to create beautiful and safe automatic driveway gates. On AGRCs website, along with educating consumers on automatic gates, gate system installers, manufacturers, and distributors share and gain access to tips, instructions, and online training on equipment, installation, and technical and sales issues. The subscription-based gate professional community and education portal is set to officially tee off at FenceTech, a fence and gate industry tradeshow held this year in Las Vegas from March 6-8, 2014.

AGRC will launch with an ever-expanding library of knowledge base articles, tutorials, and videos on sales, installation, and maintenance issues, as well as industry news and insights, a lead generation program, and a community forum through which professionals can get quick answers to difficult and complex questions.

Were proud to offer this enormous level of convenience to our members. This one CEU course is just the tip of the iceberg for AGRC. Were in the process of getting CEU approval for a number of courses and hope to unveil those offerings in the very near future, adds Fuerte.

At FenceTech, fence and gate professionals can visit booth 1080 to learn more about how AGRC can benefit them, while winning a chance at a few grand prizes.

Wind Harm and Your Roof – Just How Much Work Relies on Establishing the Genuine Damages

Wind Harm and Your Roof – Just How Much Work Relies on Establishing the Genuine Damages

Property owners will usually want to try to keep a roof over our home or business so that we can stay safe inside the building. We depend upon our roof coverings to keep nature off our belongings, our wall surfaces, and us. It could be argued sometimes what systems are best, but it is clear we need to defend ourselves by preserving our homes.

Cost of Quality Roofing: Average Income and Services In the Roofing Industry

Roof installation is among the most strenuous and tiring tasks in the nation. The typical roofer lifts heavy burdens, climbs ladders and sometimes combines the two. Kneeling and bending, as well as extended pressure on the knees, is also a daily part of a roofer’s job. The United States Department of Labor records $16.45 per hour as the 2010 median pay for roofing craftsmen (1).
