Certified Eco Defensive Builder Program Goes Live

2014-07-03

It’s official! Eco has launched the Eco Defensive Builder certification program in and around the Sandy Rebuild, and the wildfire prone regions in California. This certification program has been created for the purpose of helping to protect victims of super storms in their rebuild process by educating builders and contractors how to raise the bar on traditional building practices, instead of doing the same old thing and defining insanity. In short, this program will educate the already licensed professional involved in residential construction, rebuilding, remodeling, renovation and remediation to embrace defensive building practices, which will  protect against rising tides, high winds, fire, termites, rot and seismic activity. Upon completion of the prescribed course, newly certified builders and contractors will be presented with a signed & sealed diploma signifying their achievement as a Certified Eco Defensive Builder; at which time a marketing film shoot will be scheduled to support their business efforts. We invite you to view this video of Eco’s FIRST Certified Defensive Builder, John Paul Builders of New Jersey. http://youtu.be/qhwwW1iNABE

A Trip Down Memory Lane - Eco's First Home in the Northeast

2014-06-08

This was Eco's first customer in the NE, located in Litchfield County, CT. This owner-builder made the choice to build defensive with Eco Red Shield, long before Eco had a facility in the NE. Today, this couple is now very much a part of our Eco family as we have moved way beyond the traditional customer-supplier relationship. Behind all the stone is, YES! You’ve guessed it, our Eco Red Shield protected lumber, providing unparalleled protection against termites and mold, along with value added fire protection to the solid sawn dimensional framing components and structural sheathing.

POSTED BY STEVE CONBOY ECOB PRESIDENT & CEO

In an effort to keep folks informed we've created a blog page so that I can tell it like it is - and hopefully educate people a little bit about our humanitarian projects, our products, the building process and with lumber in general.

I also will talk about some of the pitfalls new homebuyers face.  I've been in the lumber business my entire life and have a vast knowledge of how this industry has changed in the last 35 years.  We are here to change it once again with our revolutionary product: Eco Red Shield™ protective coating - developed specifically for today's lumber.
