There are many contractors that would offer you their services, and would show completed projects. But you, as the client, we should not always agree and be more vigilant. So, before you set your budget to a contractor, here are few tips to set your mind right.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1547520587701{margin-bottom: 50px !important;background-color: #f7f7f7 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”TIP 1: Look for options ahead of time.” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Planning it ahead of times means more time to revisions for your projects to be perfectly executed. If you do not take precaution on time it will cost twice as much as you thought. Time is essential. (put another blog here with this exact line) Your projects will provide clear direction based on what you really want, need and even preferences along with your budget. Also, you have to check contractors that are near to you and who are willing to meet you face to face. This will show their eagerness to work for you and with you.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”TIP 2: Right questions equates to right answers.” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]A client sometimes just wants the finished product and gets lazy with the long-process which is unavoidable. But you as clients must know every single even the little details. What are you looking forward in this project? What do you want to see? What are you hoping for? What are you trying to avoid? This will show you a contractor’s functionality. With this, you better get that pen and paper, and start writing your questions.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”TIP 3: Ask for the 3R’s: Referrals, Recommendations, References. ” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]A contractor may have the most convincing communication and company profile but It will be down to your decision, your signature on that contract. Some contractors will automatically give you a list of their references you could call for second opinions. Unfortunately, this is not always the case you might as well ask for the 3 R’s Referrals, Recommendations and References. It will give you a background and a gist of their organization.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”TIP 4: Know what type of work they do” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]This is where process takes place. You have to consider the experience you had when you set meetings with your contractors. If they had explained their process on how they would execute your plans detail by details that’s one aspect to really consider, their organization. This includes on how they will adjust to your given budget and time also the payment process more importantly.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_column_text]

Visit Many, Many Potential Sites” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]You think you know what you want your dream home or construction project to be, but do you really? You should try to scour on different home and site books. Also try driving around and visit many potential sites are near to your prospect location so get another perspective. If you can find a newly developed area, better.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”2. Hire The Right Builder” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]In many situations, this could be a really crucial .If you have the option to hire your own builder, DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Hiring the wrong builder can be a horrendous experience.

Before you hire a builder, get a list of references and ask to see some of their work.  GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING. It’s amazing how quickly people can forget a conversation. This applies to subcontractors, as well.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”3.

Bidding your costs will eager for contractors to adjust with your budget.

We were told that some home builders just don’t need the work so they price themselves out.
Of course, the most important thing is that the builder stays within that bid. If the bid looks too good to be true, have someone else look at it (we did). We realized that the allowance for the kitchen and bathrooms was a bit low for what we had in mind, but so were the other builders’ bids.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”70px”][vc_custom_heading text=”4.

Not only can you save money, but you’ll get better service from your contractors during the off season.

5 Things to Consider when Selecting and Buying Steel Products https://www.powersteel.com.ph/uncategorized/5-things-to-consider-when-selecting-and-buying-steel-products/ https://www.powersteel.com.ph/uncategorized/5-things-to-consider-when-selecting-and-buying-steel-products/#respond Thu, 04 Oct 2018 05:57:14 +0000 http://tdtpowersteel.com.ph/?p=4938 Trust me, this is worth your read.

There are different things to consider selecting, and buying the right and appropriate material whenever building a structure:
not just tall buildings, homes but even small furniture and appliances.
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”3 minutes read” color=”default” size=”sm” align=”center” i_type=”typicons” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-time” add_icon=”true”][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text]

Briefly, steel processing or production does not consume but sustain. No material is perfectly made, but there is a top made material that will benefit many of us. Here are those aspects that might influence you to choose steel:

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion color=”white” gap=”3″ c_icon=”triangle” active_section=”1″][vc_tta_section title=”Sustainability” tab_id=”1538636897946-861d29a5-00f4″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4964″ img_size=”50×50″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Indeed, choosing a material for structures is a lifelong decision.

Sustainability simply means maintaining balance. Choosing a right material for construction will help determine your desired results. Imagine this, you are planning to build your dream home but you have no idea how to get started without the tools and materials to simply construct it. Then you do a lot of consulting that may or may not help you with your plans. You don’t want to waste effort, time, and of course money, do you?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Time” tab_id=”1538638163121-c33e92a1-9ae6″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”5008″ img_size=”50×50″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Managing time could be difficult at times; we want to be productive as possible. To finish all tasks in a specific time period.

Steel as a using a main product will save more time because it will result faster construction. In the case of erecting a building, it is quicker compared to any materials like wood or cement. Not only this, a shorter period of time is equals to more savings. The interest charges in an on-site preliminary are reduce and have earlier return of investments.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Environment” tab_id=”1538638199261-428d8e96-8d01″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”5009″ img_size=”50×50″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Unfortunately, we humans are part of how our Mother Earth is slowly destroyed. However, we should be part of how it could be redeemed.

As much as possible, with the materials we use, we must now consider its “environmental friendly” aspect. A topmost material chosen by contractors is steel. Indeed, it is safe for our environment for the reason that steel is a recycled material hence also making it cost efficient due to reused components.

In stainless steel, production and recycle does not separate. These stages are one and the same process. Every stainless steel has 60% recycled component in it (FACTS!). Also remember that it does not degrade the material once recycle, in the matter of fact it materials can be added to retain its quality.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Element” tab_id=”1538638215989-08367334-1553″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”5015″ img_size=”50×50″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Chemistry is not everybody’s favourite subject. Although, it is relevant in many industries and by then comes in handy.

The steel industry benefits in their scientific element but we will discuss it an easier manner. One component steel has is the material being light weight, contrasting to other types of materials. Also makes it more efficient in construction a tall building. Therefore, does not put strain on base of the building.

Although we know that steel corrodes in water, there are now certain features that can be combined to water-resisting seals so that it will not corrode easily. It also goes the same on how steel is a fire resistance material which they are inherently a non-combustible material. But then, high temperature may affect this, manufacturers now add more fire resistant materials to avoid melting from heat.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Long Life Durability” tab_id=”1538638263257-ddb2bfc3-d0e7″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”5011″ img_size=”50×50″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Always be wise in selecting your foundation, that’s how success could flourish.

We are not ignorant that steel is highly durable because it is strong, stiff, tough, and ductile. Steels are composed of different alloys which serve as that cause a metallic bonding have a solid solution in order for the product to possess high quality. Furthermore, it does not age or decay quickly which could avoid costly and environmental issues.

Now we’ve answered your “how to buy and select”, let us now go to your “where to buy” question. There are a lot of means in choosing your steel supplier but one thing that Power Steel is always have been proud of is how they take care and meet their customer’s needs.

9/11’s Revival: Building One World Trade Center https://www.powersteel.com.ph/news/9-11s-revival-building-one-world-trade-center/ https://www.powersteel.com.ph/news/9-11s-revival-building-one-world-trade-center/#respond Tue, 11 Sep 2018 00:45:13 +0000 http://tdtpowersteel.com.ph/?p=4695 On the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 event, I would like to take on the newly built One World Trade Center in Manhattan, New York. Developers have been spreading the good news that the building is progressing and already 40% occupied. The building Is 80 stories high which have 2.5 million square meter for office space. Although, developers have said that financing is one of their major problems with the financial crisis that U.S has been experiencing in the past few years.

Is this part of 9/11’s revival? Won’t this affect the businesses inside the new building? Knowing One World Trade Center has been built near the attacked building, how safe are the businesses and the ones near in that vicinity?

This is just one proof that even though it has been difficult that it even took years for it to prosper and to continuously function. There had been delays but then issues are still manageable. Revival? Resurgence? Reincarnation? In this way, it paves to a positive outcome from the tragedy. Planning and designing of the building, architects and engineers should have been more careful and smart in designing so that in future events, One World Trade Center is more secured and safe. However, considering the years of planning I think that they have put their mind into it for this incident won’t happen again.

To know more about the new One World Trade Center, read: With new World Trade Center building set to open, developer sees ‘strong’ market.

Magnitude 8.2 eathquake possibly hit Pangasinan anytime https://www.powersteel.com.ph/news/magnitude-8-2-eathquake-possibly-hit-pangasinan-anytime/ https://www.powersteel.com.ph/news/magnitude-8-2-eathquake-possibly-hit-pangasinan-anytime/#respond Fri, 20 Jul 2018 01:17:16 +0000 http://tdtpowersteel.com.ph/?p=4206 Is Philippines already resilient for eartquake?

The entire Metro Manila and its adjacent local government units anticipate the BIG ONE—it is said to be the most disastrous earthquake that would ever happen in the Philippines. It is expected to devastate properties, kill lives, and topple down buildings.

In Pangasinan, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PRDRRMC) carefully monitor all aspects of the province for anytime soon and possible occurrence of estimatedly 8.2 magnitude of earthquake. According to Rhodyn Luchinvar Oro, Focal Point for  Pangasinan Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, the officials had already identified villages near the fault lines.

On the other hand, Other fault lines that could possibly trigger the Pangasinan are being watched closely –and those are on Digdig, San Manuel and east Zambales.

What to do during earthquake?

Here are the very basic tips from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) that one must do in order to be saved:

According Ted Esguerra, a Rescue Doctor, the proper way to conduct the duck, cover, and hold is:

“When the shaking starts and you are indoors, Esguerra said you should follow these three steps: duck, cover and hold. Duck or drop down to the floor, take cover under a sturdy table or other furniture, and hold on to its posts.”

Today, at exactly 1’ o’clock in the afternoon, a nationwide earthquake drill was conducted to simulate the possible scenario during and after the earthquake.

The government hotline numbers will operate during disaster, to with:

So what does government do?

Resilience, for many people, is just a word that government aim for and seems vague, but more than this word are the behind-the-scene preparations that government is doing. The government ensures that all its projects including roads and bridges, evacuation centers, and other hard infrastructures and structures are stronger and resilient to withstand during this foreseen magnitude of earthquake.

5 Industries that Steel is Important https://www.powersteel.com.ph/steel-related/5-industries-that-steel-is-important/ https://www.powersteel.com.ph/steel-related/5-industries-that-steel-is-important/#respond Fri, 06 Jul 2018 01:44:32 +0000 http://tdtpowersteel.com.ph/?p=4056 Steel is one of the most commonly used materials for both consumer and industrial applications.
Steel is made from iron, which occurs in nature in combination with other elements. There are more
than 3,500 different grades of steel with many different physical, chemical, and environmental
properties. With exceptional strength, flexibility, and recyclability, it is used in items we see almost
every day. Here are just a few of the industries where steel is important.

 

Here are five big industries that rely on steel, what the steel business means for their products and operations, and what their business means to us.

 

1. CONSTRUCTION
As we’ve touched on previously, steel is one of the world’s most reliable materials in large part due to its usage in construction.
At once energy-efficient, hyper-durable, long-lasting and lightweight, steel beams are commonplace in public and private construction sites
From infrastructures like railroads and bridges to skyscrapers, homes, and parks, steel provides the ultimate in affordability and strength.

The majority of steel is used in this industry, as structures can be built quickly at a low cost. For this reason,
construction trends and steel industry influence one another directly.

 

2. AUTOMOTIVE & TRANSPORT

As it remains the material of choice for automakers worldwide, steel helps manufacturers reach the desired strength and safety levels for vehicles large
and small. In fact, everything in the transportation industry from trains, to ships, and airplanes relies heavily on steel to transport people and goods,
whether overseas or cross-town.

Steel’s incredible strength-to-weight ratio has revolutionized transportation, which continues to improve and innovate all of the time.
We owe every amazing capability from air travel to battleships to this resilient material.

At Pacesetter, we follow automotive trends regarding regulation, energy efficiency, and emerging materials to better
understand how our industries will work together in the future.

 

3. ENERGY

The energy sector is a constantly shifting, but whether it’s oil or solar, you can bet that steel is critical in the infrastructure. Hydro, wind,
electric and natural gas, and just about any other energy source out there demands steel in construction. So long as energy is in demand
—which for the world to run, it always will be—steel will be a necessary resource.

Even so, things like dropping gas prices (made possible by a natural gas boom in North America) do impact the price of steel. That’s
why we make sure to pay attention to every new shift and trend that comes along in the energy sector and prepare to act and react accordingly.

 

4. PACKAGING

For about 200 years, steel has been used to package goods and protect them from exposure by water, air, and sunlight. Packaging is a
cold-rolled steel specialty, allowing for high-speed filling and easy opening.

Steel packaging is most common in food and beverages, though you will also find it in general lines and closures such as bottle caps.

 

5. APPLIANCES

Lastly, your kitchen and entire household almost certainly wouldn’t be the same without steel, which accounts for 75% of the average
household appliance’s weight. Think washer machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, sinks, ovens, and other products vital to the modern home.

It’s clear, then, that Pacesetter has its eye on the road, in the home, in the sky and the sea as we continue to innovate and provide the best
in steel service and delivery. Any and every trend in the aforementioned industries may affect the relationships we have built, just as the steel
market impacts their own day-to-day operations.

 

At the end of the day, great partnerships and attention to the trends of today and tomorrow are key to keeping the world running the way we’ve carefully built it: like a fine-tuned, steel machine.

Repair and Maintenance of Installed Sheet Piles https://www.powersteel.com.ph/uncategorized/repair-and-maintenance-of-installed-sheet-piles/ https://www.powersteel.com.ph/uncategorized/repair-and-maintenance-of-installed-sheet-piles/#respond Fri, 22 Jun 2018 03:21:26 +0000 http://tdtpowersteel.com.ph/?p=3909 Nowadays, many of the civil work infrastructures, especially those that are vertically-built, are built with the use of sheet piles. Steel sheet piles are long structural sections with a vertical interlocking system that creates a continuous wall. The walling is widely constructed to retain either soil or water in a particular portion or side. The capacity of the Steel Sheet pile to perform is dependent upon its geometry and the soil where is it piled. While sheet piles can withstand heavy infrastructure works, it must still be maintained and repaired as often as necessary—because it serves as a stopping foundation for soils, waters, and other permeating or porous water or soils.
But good news! Roen Salvage Company done In-situ repair of submerged steel sheet pile walls—this process includes the repair and maintenance of damaged structure of sheet piles. Roen Salvage has already done so many repair of installed sheet piles in many operating infrastructures.

According to Roen Salvage, this is being done to give a long-term protection of installed sheet piles. The picture shows that sheet pile is installed and submerged in water. Roen Salvage was asked to conduct site visit and eventually to fully rehabilitate damaged sheet piles.
