Quality matters when it comes to building materials

Just ask The Three Little Pigs

What’s the one lesson we can from both professional builders and The Three Little Pigs? Quality matters when it comes to construction. If you jury-rig, cut corners, take the easy way out and think good enough really is good enough, you’ll likely have a price to pay down the road.

We see it all the time on home renovations on TV (and in bedtime stories), when what should be a simple project turns into an expensive nightmare when a homeowner learns that previous construction or repairs were not done properly or well. In some cases, the result is not only an expensive fix, but may also be a possible danger (as the first two little pigs can attest).

Build Smart

If you are starting a renovation or construction project, make sure you have what it takes to get the job done right. This includes:

  • Permits and plans: Be sure you have a plan in place, and pull the necessary permits. Most towns and cities require permits and inspections for construction projects, and not getting them may result in costly fines, revisions or teardowns.
  • Expertise: Even the pros know when they need to ask for help. Have a realistic expectation of your skill level if you are taking on a project yourself, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Our experts are happy to offer advice and make recommendations. If you need to hire a professional, be sure that person is experienced, licensed, bonded and insured to do the work you need.
  • Materials matter: Back to The Three Little Pigs—even if a home is built by an expert, if it’s constructed of straw, it won’t last. You can trust Boilard to supply you with the quality products, building materials and tools you need for any project, from framing lumber to hardware, roofing to flooring, and everything in between.
