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.

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, […]

It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review.

I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
— Derrick C. W. Childs, Director Construction & Design, Container Homes USA

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.
