Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

3 Trending Metal Roof Colour Schemes in 2018

Troy Medina

To display their work, painters use canvas. For roofers, the roof is the canvas. With most roofs covering several square metres, they are usually very conspicuous. Therefore, roofing contractors have to make their work stand out if they want to attract clients. While there are various ways to market your work, use of colours is known to be highly effective, especially in roofing works. For example, when people look at metal roofing, the first thing they see is not the design but the colour. As a roofer, it is imperative to give your clients more colour options. As such, you have to keep abreast with trending designs to keep up with the competition. Here are a few roof colour suggestions that will get the attention of prospective customers.

Bold colours -- Currently, homeowners are giving subtlety a break and moving away from the traditional earth colours. It can be attributed to the fact that metal roofs in bold colours are trending at the moment. Some of the vivid colours that are gaining traction are the reds, whites and deep blues. Ultraviolet is also getting recognition, although it is less likely that many clients will go with a very purple metal roof. One advantage of bold colours in metal roofing is that they give homeowners a chance to showcase their character and uniqueness. Stock metal roofs in bright colours and watch as the doors to your store keep rotating as clients trickle in.

Dramatic Colours – Exciting colours are becoming common among homeowners. The primary goal of using highly conspicuous colours on roofs is to achieve a dramatic effect. It can be achieved by complementing or contrasting different colour choices. For instance, using complementary colours such as green and blue on a single roof will create a monochromatic look. On the other hand, starkly contrasting colours such as purple and yellow will help to achieve an eye-catching theme. Notably, dramatic colour combinations might seem off at first; however, with most customers looking to be different, dramatic coloured roofs are worth exploring.

Matte Colour -- Some homeowners prefer a little bit of subtlety and boldness on their roof at the same time. You will not see such customers going for the bright reds, violets or even a mix of the two. To appeal to the niche market, you should stock matte-coloured roofs in your store. However, make it known to your clients that the matte coloured option only comes in black.
