Cambria SwanbridgeConstruction Resources, LLC is excited to announce that the Cambria Gallery at Buckhead Atlanta and the CR Home Design Center in Decatur are now offering seven new Cambria designs – the Swanbridge, Carrick, Weybourne, Helmsley, Harlech, Princetown and Hadley.

From the Marble Collection, three new designs expand Cambria’s elegant marble palette. The complex and flowing Swanbridge features a pillowy marble foundation with medium-tone gray veins, dabs of creamy white accents and pinpoint charcoal speckles spattered throughout. Carrick flourishes swirling shades of gray and soft charcoal specks to create an intriguing pattern in this stylish composition. The soft and airy Weybourne is a timeless blend of classic pillowy marble tones grounded with subtle gray veins for added character.

In the Coastal Collection, Helmsley offers sophistication with the merging of rich coppers, gold and tans among pewter veins and ebony confetti. The rich and aristocratic Harlech is an elegant union of noble coppers, gold and tans infused around and within boldly dramatic gray-sparkled veins of black, gray and white. Princetown wraps itself in regal shades of deep purple and gold that swirl behind dramatic black and white veins.

Lastly, in the Desert Collection, Hadley is a solid blue that is crisp, clean and classy.

With the launch of the seven new designs, Cambria, the only family-owned, American-made producer of quartz surfaces in the United States, now has a total of 133 designs on the market. Cambria continues to lead in design, beauty and innovation and has again created timeless and luxurious design palettes homeowners will love.

Builder Specialties Collaborates with Francois & Co. Mantels

Inspired by the French coast, this mantle from The Classic collection is a simple piece with rustic French charm

Builder Specialties, a Construction Resources company, and Francois & Co. are proud to introduce a series of fireplace mantels together. This exclusive new series includes three unique collections that feature designs that are both flexible and functional, and range from classical to more contemporary styles. Categorized by price point, the three collections are The Classic, The Elegant and The Select. Each collection consists of four different themes and distinct personalities that collectively can adapt to any home’s décor.

Inspired by the architectural styles of the French Country, Italianate, Gothic Tudor and Contemporary, The Classic collection is marked by elegant sophistication expressed through understated and clean lines. Each mantle in this collection is unique in its own way, and will make a simple yet powerful statement in any home. The different styles of mantels you can have installed in your home by Builder Specialties, a Construction Resources company, are The Provence, The French Coastal, The Bordeaux, The Beauchamps and The Marion.

Builder Specialties Collaborates with Francois & Co. Mantels

The Flixton mantle from The Elegant collection is set apart by its characteristic recessed spandrels, plain jambs and beveled inside edge

In The Elegant collection, the mantels are distinguished by their more intricate sculptural lines and decorative details with inspiration taken from the French Country, Gothic Tudor, Contemporary and English architecture. Each of the mantels in this collection are as refined as they are striking, and include The Campanile, Toscane, The Flixton, The Manier and The Catherine selections.

Lastly, The Select collection is inspired by antique masterpieces and historical references. The mantels bring heritage to life and uphold timeless standards of architectural proportion and beauty found in French Louis XIV-XV, the French Country, Gothic Tudor and Contemporary styles.  From this collection, the mantels that can be installed by Builder Specialties are The Savignac, Anjou, The Louis, The Pugin and The Elite.

Once you’ve found the perfect mantle based on your style and budget, you can choose between two beautiful materials, Limestone Crème and Limestone Grey, to complete the look. Using a centuries-old technique called Scagliola, Francois & Co. and Builder Specialties, a Construction Resources company, were able to recreate the exquisite artistry found in luxurious European residences and ornate churches dating back to the 17th century when the technique came into fashion.

Builder Specialties Collaborates with Francois & Co. Mantels

The Select collection's Anjou mantle defines elegance through its Country French appeal and graceful curves

In all of the mantels from these collections, you can see the time and skill put into making these beautiful pieces of art. Each has been engineered to accommodate each of the three conventional firebox openings (36,” 42” and 50”) while maintaining architectural balance and harmony.

Enjoy Energy Efficiency with Builder Specialties’ Insulated GaragesYou may not know it, but garage doors play a key role in the energy efficiency and overall well-being of your home. Not only does it help keep the heating and air flow consistent, but it also keeps energy costs down in a major way. For these reasons it is important to have insulated garage doors, especially if it is attached to your home.

Whenever a door leading from the garage to your home is open, air travels into your home. This means the temperature within the house where that door is will fluctuate, and your heating and air system will have to work harder to keep the temperature where you set it. In addition, if there is a room above the garage, air can travel upwards through the ceiling/floor and cause that room’s temperature to fluctuate as well. When your heating and air system works more, it costs you more money. An insulated garage will help keep the temperature in the garage at a consistent level, and will reduce the amount of air transferred and reduce temperature fluctuations.

Another reason to have insulated garages is for your comfort. Whether you have a workshop in your garage or do other projects there, you want to be comfortable while working in the garage. With an insulated garage, the temperatures inside will be kept at a smaller range so you can get what you need done without experiencing extreme cold or heat.  In addition, adding an insulated garage door can reduce outside noise; prevent more pollen, dust and insects from entering your home; and control humidity, which is becoming more important now that the summer months have arrived.

No matter what your reason, an insulated garage will help keep you and your wallet in a better place. Builder Specialties, a Construction Resources company, is a leader in garage door sales and can install an insulated garage for you today. To learn more about Builder Specialties and how they can help you save on your energy bills with their energy-efficient garage doors and other products, visit www.BuilderSpecialties.net.
