Are you building a new residential home or commercial office space? Need help with a carpentry job? Having a high quality carpenter as a member of your construction team is a must. Even though, not all Michagin Carpenters are trustworthy, there is good news. The following tips will help you select the right Michagin carpenter for your project.
First of all, a serious contractor will also be a serious business person. Therefore, they will set up a proper business entity. This important business step protects their employees and customers. Ask the carpenter if their business is set up as an LLC, S-corp or C-corp. This should give you additional confidence that they are serious about being a legitimate Michagin carpenter. Furthermore, you can also check with the Secretary of State to validate their corporate status.
Secondly, all trustworthy Michagin Carpenters carry valid insurance. Ask them to include a copy of their insurance certificate with their bid proposal. Additionally, this will quickly scare off anyone who is doing business illegally.
Third, get at least three references! Also, make sure to ask about any relationship between the Michagin carpenter and the reference. Most importantly, ask if the reference would ever use the Carpenter again.
Lastly, compare Michagin Carpenters rates information for 2019, from the top home improvement professional sites.

MIAMI -- All economic activities that occur in the natural world require resources such as energy, materials and land, while generating waste and polluting emissions as unwanted byproduct. Today the demand for natural resources and the production of pollution exceed the regenerative capacity of the Earth and put us face to face with one of the biggest challenges of our time: moving towards a sustainable economy. But what does sustainability mean? Despite its simplicity, sustainability is a concept people have a hard time wrapping their minds around: Is it all about recycling? Are “green” or “natural” synonyms for “sustainable”? And last but not least: how can sustainability be addressed in the laminates industry? Does durability play a role there? Let's dig into those questions and debunk some myths. Dr. Alessandra Fusi, Sustainability specialist with Trespa and Arpa will address all of these questons in her presentation, "Facing the Sustainability Challenge: What Cards Can Our Industry Play?"
The meeting will be held at the beautiful Miami Biltmore Hotel for two days of presentations from the global leaders in design and surfacing technology. Ample time for networking, and even a little golf, make this the industry’s top event for users of decorative surfaces. Don’t miss it!
