Today, helical piles are being used for more than decks, they are being used for buildings, additions, signs, fencing and more.

Respect The Next Trade

It is all about building more than a home, it is about building a team that respects each other. When a Tradesperson arrives on site, the site should be clean and ready for that Tradesperson to do the work involved.

When that Tradesperson is complete they should leave the job site just as clean for the next Tradesperson.

Join Manny, Mike, and Carlito as they share more than a few on-site stories about respecting the next trade and the talk gets right into all the crap we have seen on site, literally.

"Good enough" is not good enough for us.

This one expression has made us a few enemies in the construction industry - and we don’t care. Tradespeople who don’t care to learn new ways to build, are not interested in new products, and just want to phone in the work day on site and move on, are not good enough for us.

Today’s podcast is all about "good enough".
