Case Studies January 2015

Aeroseal

Nearly 50 percent of the average home and commercial building’s energy bill is spent on heating, air conditioning and ventilation, yet duct leakage in residential homes costs consumers $25 billion each year and even more for commercial building owners and operators. That money is literally disappearing into thin air, but since 1997, Aeroseal’s exclusive duct-sealing […]

Direct Supply Aptura

Bob Hillis established Direct Supply in 1985, which eventually grew into several divisions, including Direct Supply Aptura (Aptura), a Wisconsin-based national supplier and contractor.

As the years went on, clients started asking for more products and services, seeking more […]

In 1986, David Goodrum founded J.D. Goodrum Company (JDG) as a small, private-owned construction firm in Charlotte, N.C. He completed his first project shortly after, working on the local Presbyterian Hospital. From its inception, JDG established strong client relationships and built quality projects within the commercial construction market. “We found a strong niche in retail […]

LMC Corporation

Texas-based Lee Construction & Maintenance Corporation (LMC) is doing something many general contractors shy away from: self-performing up to 70 percent of service. “Our competitors are more or less construction managers; we manage, but we also self-perform, which makes us more readily available to our clients and makes them think of us first,” says Ed […]

Maze Nails

Approximately 90 percent of the nails in the U.S. now come from China; however, Illinois-based Maze Nails (Maze) is proud to be one of the last and longest standing manufacturers of 100-percent American-made nails. Produced from high carbon steel and reinforced with a double coat of zinc to craft a stronger, rust-proof product, Maze has […]

McGuyer Homebuilders Inc.

For many homebuilders across the U.S., the recession and the drop in buyer demand was simply too much to overcome. “Approximately 55 percent of homebuilders in the U.S. didn’t make it out of the downturn, but we’re still here,” says Gary Tesch, president of McGuyer Homebuilders Inc. (MHI). “In 2006, we built 3,300 homes and […]

Merola Tile

Over the last 25 years, Merola Tile (Merola) has steadily grown into one of the East Coast’s leading tile distributors. Now, through an exclusive relationship with the Home Depot, the New Jersey-based division of the distributor and wholesaler is going nationwide. “In 2013, sales were up 30 percent over 2012 and so far, in 2014, […]

Metalmaster Roofmaster

In 1977 the husband and wife team of George and Gloria Smeja established Metalmaster Roofmaster (Metalmaster) in their garage as a small, family-owned business. From its humble beginnings, Metalmaster quickly grew, eventually becoming large enough to merit its own location. For more than 35 years, the company continues to grow with an expanding geographic footprint. […]

Meyer Contracting Inc.

In 1984, Kathy and LeRoy Meyer set out to build a business that would support and set a precedent for their children. Kathy is a Native American (White Earth enrollee) woman, an anomaly in the construction industry; her interest in building the business stems from a drive for success that she has held from an […]

Mounts Electric Inc.

A business doesn’t remain strong for decades without learning to adapt and change alongside its customers and that’s what Mounts Electric Inc. (Mounts Electric), an industrial and commercial electrical contractor, has learned to do over the course of 82 years. The privately owned, Indiana-based company is guided by the strong business leadership of Dave Mounts, […]

Working with Kyle at TrueLine Publishing was a great experience. We are quite pleased with how the article about Souder Brothers turned out.

The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.
— Tim Craddock, President, Vansant & Gusler Inc.
Kyle Gahm was instrumental in coordinating this project from beginning to end. He was always available and a pleasure to work with. It would be a pleasure to work with Kyle down the road. Bill Keaton was very impressive in raising money from advertising which resulted in ASE getting the cover story, so thank you Bill. Lia Prysunka and Jeanee Dudley are both very impressive individuals who deserve a lot of credit for this featured piece. They were both very patient and accepting of any changes we suggested. The format, quality, and resolution was awesome. To sum it all up: Our upper management, who never have been high on PR and things of this nature said that it was "absolutely fantastic" and were blown away. They now are requesting multiple copies of the full magazine and are very proud of the work you all put in. Thanks again.
— Ryan Sanzari, Director of Operations, Alfred Sanzari Enterprises
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review. From the start of the project, it was apparent that everyone involved was very concerned with accuracy and getting the facts right. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback and ensuring that we were happy with the content and with the manner in which Giroux Glass was described in the finalized piece.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing
Kyle and his team were very professional and patient in explaining their program to us. Their communications were clear and concise and did a great job of guiding us through the process of getting published in their magazine.
— Michael Henthorn, Owner, Henthorn Commercial Construction
