For Builders AND Chefs, the Right Tools Make All the Difference

By Rosario Ungaro

As a professional builder and tradesman, I know a lot about tools—the quality of my work and the satisfaction of my clients depend on it. I choose tools that help me do the best job possible. But, it's not just the tool's exacting specifications I'm looking for. I want a tool that gives me confidence; I want a tool that enhances my work experience and inspires me to deliver quality work—a tool I feel good using.

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.
