Construction Resources, New Hire Abbey GibboneyConstruction Reserves is always looking for new talented team members. Just a couple of weeks ago, Builders Floor Covering and Tile had the pleasure of hiring a new Outside Sales Representative, Abbey Gibboney. With her past experience in design, we are confident Abbey will do a wonderful job in her new role!

Since starting with Builders Floor Covering and Tile, Abbey has been helping assist in the Buckhead showroom with the retail and designer clients. For the next couple of months, she will continue to familiarize herself with the products and meet with vendors. After, Abbey will focus on commercial designers and builders.

As an Outside Sales Representative, Abbey is responsible for meeting with clients and helping them select the best products suited for their projects and designing layouts. While helping to pick the best products, Abbey quotes projects, measures and will place necessary orders to meet the customer’s needs. Other responsibilities include ordering and supplying samples to the clients when needed, staying current with product knowledge, following up with leads and bringing in new leads, assisting with showroom walk-in traffic and looking for new ways to improve the business.

Abbey has immensely enjoyed her first days at Builders Flooring and Tile and meeting her new colleagues. “Everyone has been so friendly and helpful,” explains Abbey. “I do love the amount of teamwork I have observed over the past couple of weeks. It shows that everyone really does care about the success of the company and each other.”

Prior to working with Builders Floor Covering and Tile, Abbey graduated from Bauder College with an interior design degree. Upon graduation, Abbey worked for G&L Marble for eight years until their closing in 2010. Afterwards, she worked for Bottega Stone until her present job with us. These jobs have gained her experience and knowledge in helping designers, builders and architects with the selection and design of countertops, flooring and walls.

Abbey currently resides in Mableton with her amazing husband and three children, two beautiful daughters and a new handsome 3-month-old son. When she is not working, Abbey enjoys scrapbooking, reading, playing softball and spending as much time as she can with her family.

Join us in welcoming Abbey Gibboney to the Builders Floor Covering and Tile team!

Atlanta Glass and Mirror at Quality EnclosuresConstruction Resources’ Atlanta Glass and Mirror is always staying on the latest trends in our growing industry. Recently, team members visited Quality Enclosures in New York to find out more about sand blasting on glass and its capabilities.

There, the team learned that new automatic blasting technology can create endless designs and achieve great detail. Quality Enclosures also taught the group that public demands for thicker glass, such as the new 1/2-inch Starphire glass doors, over the standard 3/8-inch glass is growing. In New York, customers are requesting the Starphire brand, also known as Ultra Clear, because it has a clean and clear edge instead of the traditional edge found in 3/8-inch standard glass. The team saw that this process was achieved by lower iron content in the substrate.

Atlanta Glass and Mirror is excited to share this information with customers that have already been interested in Starphire glass doors and with those that do not yet know about the brand. Benefits include a very clean and crystal clear surface, added integrity and a straighter installation because the product has less of a chance of bowing. Additionally, Starphire glass doors are outfitted with solid brass eight inch handles over the six inch hollow handles. Again, this gives a new experience of excellence over the standard 3/8-inch glass units.

In New York, the group also underwent a training session on HydroShield. This is glass protection that closes the “micro pores” and makes the glass super slick, not allowing water and soap containments to attach to the glass. Also, HydroShield glass protector on the front and back of the door assures that the door will stay bright and haze free, with proper care. Atlanta Glass and Mirror will now be offering HyrdroShield in its premier line, so ask for it on your next order!

Atlanta Glass and Mirror appreciates Quality Enclosures for allowing their team to stop by for a visit and looks forward to sharing new products with customers. For more information on Atlanta Glass and Mirror and Construction Resources, visit www.crhomeusa.com.

Virginia-Highland Tour of HomesConstruction Resources is excited to announce that its kitchen and bath products will be showcased in Virginia-Highland during the 20th Annual Tour of Homes Saturday, Dec. 6 and Sunday, Dec. 7. Celebrating interior design and architecture, the tour will feature eight gorgeous properties, seven homes and one historic church.

Construction Resources contributed to three of these homes. In one, the company installed black pearl honed granite in the kitchen and laundry room and white Carrera marble on the island and in the bathrooms. In the second, lagos azul limestone was put in the kitchen while white Carrera marble on the island and in the bathrooms makes the home bright. The third home has mineral black soapstone in the kitchen, Colorado mist marble on the island, jet mist granite in the laundry room and boy’s bathroom and Carrera marble in the additional bathrooms.

Each stop on the tour boasts a unique history, enhanced by the personal touch of each owner. One of the most memorable homes, 1141 Lanier Blvd, is a custom, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Prairie style home with a brick and limestone exterior, complemented by extensive interior woodwork, a gourmet kitchen, wine cellar and fully equipped gym.

Part of the beauty of these homes is the range of new construction paired with history, making each home completely unique. 789 Brookridge Drive has been completely remodeled and has quadrupled in size since its construction in 1925. Now featuring three floors and nearly 4,000 square feet, this home has preserved its original front façade and other structural features, allowing it to span the decades as a modern home with a vibrant history.

Local restaurants and vendors will offer tastings at each home Saturday and Sunday between noon and 4:00 p.m. Tickets are available online for $25 each and may be purchased through Friday, Dec. 5.

The Virginia-Highlands Tour of Homes is organized by the Virginia Highlands Civic Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to community development. Funds raised by the Tour of Homes go toward construction or improvement of neighborhood parks, sidewalks, safety and other community projects.

To buy tickets, view a map of featured homes or find out more details about this year’s Tour of Homes, visit www.VaHiTourofHomes.org. For more information about Construction Resources and the products and services it offers, visit www.CRHomeUSA.com.

Home for the HolidaysAtlanta’s favorite wintertime tradition is back with the Home for the Holidays designer showcase and marketplace. Formerly known as the Christmas House, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays is an annual showcase where visitors are invited to tour a beautiful home designed by the city’s leading designer industries. This year, Construction Resources installed stunning countertops to many rooms in this home inspired by the 1890s to 1920s English Arts and Crafts style of Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Many of our stones were installed in several rooms including many bathrooms, the kitchen and pantry, main level bar and in the upstairs and main level laundry. For the bathrooms, the Arabescato Marble, Calacatta Gold Marble and Bianco Levantina were used to create a luxurious spa-like retreat. In the kitchen, the wonderful Taj Mahal Quartzite was used for the countertops, pantry and back splash. In the upstairs and main level laundry, the modern silver soapstone was used for a clean look.

Sunshine on a Ranney Day's Austin and HannahTo many around Georgia, Saturday, Nov. 1 was just a regular day, and a cold one at that. But, for two special kids and their families in Cumming, their lives were full of warmth and happiness as Sunshine on a Ranney Day revealed their home’s makeover. Construction Resources is honored to have had a hand in the project, donating granite vanity tops and sinks for Hannah and Austin’s accessible bathroom.

Hannah and Austin are a very unique brother and sister. In 2009, at the age of five, Hannah was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disorder called Friedreich’s Ataxia. This life-altering disorder causes muscle weakness and loss of coordination in the arms and legs requiring wheel chair utilization, vision and hearing impairments, slurred speech, diabetes, aggressive scoliosis and a life threatening heart disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Now, in her preteen years, Hannah is in a wheel chair and wears a back brace.

This horrific disease is genetic; however, when Austin was younger, he had not shown any signs and testing was delayed. That all changed three years later when Austin was playing soccer and his parents noticed the familiar struggle for him to manage his own feet. Shortly after, Hannah’s brother was diagnosed with the same disease.

Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a non-profit organization based in Atlanta dedicated to creating dream room makeovers for children with long-term illnesses, heard about the siblings and decided to renovate spaces in Hannah and Austin’s current home. Renovations included making the home wheel-chair accessible by adding a ramp, widening doorways, installing appropriate hardwood flooring and more. The Azul Platino granite vanity tops and Chemcore Lotus sinks from Construction Resources were even installed at lower level, allowing Hannah and Austin to have easy access.

Today, Hannah and Austin have a space where they can feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. To find out more about Hannah and Austin’s story, visit www.sunshineonaranneyday.com. For more information about Construction Resources, visit www.crhomeusa.com.
