Est. reading time: 4 mins

The brute strength and space efficiency of Dome Technology’s domes make them ideal for storing bulk products like grain and wood pellets.  In fact, the domes are so strong they can weather hurricane-force winds and tornadoes, which is why the company now builds shelters for school kids and their communities. The key to doing this, […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Drew Maran started his custom home construction business in 1985, green was a color painted on the inside of his client’s wall, not a building standard. That didn’t stop his company, Drew Maran Construction, from becoming an early adopter of sustainable building practices eventually referred to as ‘green’ and taking steps like using non-toxic […]

The Duffie Companies

Just as restaurants like Starbucks and Subway list the calories in their menu items, Shane Pollin predicts the building industry might one day list Energy Star ratings. That disclosure, he hopes, would get people to look at buildings differently. While it may sound farfetched, this isn’t the first time one of Pollin’s ideas has sounded […]

Paul MacQuinn says he was stunned when, in 2004, his company received an order from the White House. President George W. Bush’s second inauguration ceremony was approaching.

When Dennis Kane was young, he never understood why his father hated firing people. As the head of a successful trucking business with more than 1,000 employees, Kane assumed it was just another part of running a business. “But my dad would say, ‘No, you don’t understand. You’re not just firing the employee; you’re firing […]

A day at the beach is how Niklas Moeller would introduce the concept of sound masking. Even though it’s far from silent, it still feels quiet. Ambient sound from the wind and breaking waves mitigate the noise of loud beachgoers, traffic or machinery. Similarly, in built environments, sound masking technology uses a specific type of […]

Leonard’s Services

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When founder Leonard Nagel started Leonard’s Carpet Services in 1960, he set out to be a carpet installation supplier, nothing more. Within a decade, his company had not only become one of the largest carpet labor suppliers in southern California, it was also providing other services. That’s been the trend going on six decades: growth […]

Milestone Contractors

Est. reading time: 4 mins

More than revenue, more than growth, Milestone Contractors measures its success by worker safety. “Everyone goes home the way they came in,” says Scott Cornelius, vice president and Indianapolis area manager at Milestone. This is important for the Indiana-based company because it specializes in highway and road paving, where speeding trucks, heat stroke, blizzards and […]

Northwest Partitions

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When contractors finish a construction project they get what’s called a punch list. It includes everything that isn’t up to code or the original specifications, and it can be a huge drain of money and time. Not for Northwest Partitions. “We pride ourselves on doing it right the first time so it’s not uncommon for […]

Testimonials

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
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
TrueLine Publishing was a delight to work with. They were extremely patient and worked diligently to get our article written and published. The team always responded in a timely manner and was courteous. I look forward to working with TrueLine Publishing in the future and will recommend them to other businesses.

Working with Kyle at TrueLine Publishing was a great experience. We are quite pleased with how the article about Souder Brothers turned out. The magazine article and photo spread is going to be a very effective tool to use in our marketing. If you have the opportunity to be featured in a project like this, I would recommend doing it. Kyle and his team made the whole process very smooth and we are happy to have been a part of the latest edition of US Builders Review.
— Corinne Schaffer, Project Manager, Souder Brothers Construction
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.
