Bernice Hires RetiresAfter years working alongside her two sons, presidents Mitch and Sonny Hires, at the family-owned and -led company Construction Resources, Bernice Hires stepped down from her position as matriarch of the company and retired late last month and the entire team had a small event honoring her work and the legacy of creating a family-focused company that does everything it can to treat its customers right.

The luncheon event was catered by Step-by-Step and featured some wonderful anecdotes about the early years of Construction Resources. One of the cuter stories was about how word would get back around to Mitch when Bernice would call for collections from material deals. Except Miss Bernice wouldn’t call the builders – instead, she would call their mothers to pass the news along to their sons and daughters. The event was full of similar sentimental stories from when the Atlanta building industry was one big family, and Miss Bernice was known as one of the kindest, sweetest and most efficient members of it.

Kitchen design for outdoors in AtlantaIt may be pollen season and the idea of going out under the Atlanta clouds of yellow may not be the thing you want to do, but right around the corner is all the joy and fun of Georgia summer – which means NOW is the time to get cracking on your outdoor living and entertaining upgrades so that you can enjoy it all summer long and into the fabulous Georgia fall! Construction Resources is ready to help, with everything you need to spiff up your entertaining space or give it an overhaul into a full outdoor kitchen!

An outdoor kitchen is a way to expand your entertaining space and offers ways to enjoy the outdoors. It provides not only style, but workspace that can be sorely needed when working with food outside. Outdoor kitchens have to be made of materials ready to withstand the elements, so granite and Cambria are favorites for outdoor surface materials. While granite has to be cared for and sealed every few years to keep it safe from sun, wind, rain and more, Cambria has a proven track record of being a more durable material that doesn’t need sealing. Of course, you will want a durable material like stone to make the base, drawers added to store all the tools you will need to be an efficient outdoor chef, and stools that can withstand the elements if you’ll have a countertop that extends out to a serving bar.

The time for springing into action with this sale starts at 9 a.m. on both days, as the first buyers on each day will also win. The first ten customers to spend $500 or more in Cambria products get a free Cambria cheese board and customers that select a countertop in a different brand/material get a free faucet. Of course, these prizes are bonuses on top of amazing deals of 15 percent or more off everything on the 13-acre Construction Resources Decatur campus.

This means countertops, sinks, flooring, bath hardware, mirrors, framed and frameless shower doors and more will be on sale. The sale includes our wide variety of green building materials, so you can save money and feel good about the low environmental impact of quartz countertops from Cambria, recycled glass counters from Vetrazzo and the recycled marble countertops for the bath from Piedrafina. When it comes to Cambria, our huge selection of the over 100 design profiles will be on sale, and three of the profiles will be at special discount all the way to 35 percent off!

There are a couple of ways you can save even more, including taking advantage of manufacturer discounts on Mohawk flooring, or getting creative by exploring our remnant yard where you can get pieces as low as 25 dollars or 10 dollars per square foot plus fabrication and installation. These pieces can be used to great effect in bathrooms or for changing up a smaller counter space or kitchen island!

Keep in mind that these discounts are only good from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 9 and 10, and in order to enjoy the discount you will have to pay in full at the time of the sale. If you are considering Cambria, there are attractive financing options available that can help you save this weekend and set an affordable payment schedule to live your dream today. We’ll look forward to seeing you next Friday and Saturday!

Construction Resources visits birth of StoneworkingConstruction Resources Operations Manager David Lovelock had the honor of joining the Stone Fabricators Alliance tour across Italy in an amazing opportunity to see some of the birthplaces of stoneworking and pick up on skills used by Italian stone artisans.

One of the big stops on the tour was the Henraux Quarry in the Carrara region of Italy, which has been producing quality stone since 1821 and has become one of the most renowned sources for the highly desirable Carrara White marble. It was here that David and other members of the Stone Fabricators Alliance got to see the quarry that has produced this precious stone over the years, as a site that many traditional Italian sculptors like Michelangelo might have gotten material from, to a site where modern stone slabs come from today. They also got to see how current extraction methods draw the stone from the ground in some of the most efficient ways ever. Read More→
