PostHeaderIcon Need a New Roof on the Shop

In fact this building was built during the Second World War at that time this something called the ORD or the Overseas Replacement Depot. War being a messy and wasteful endeavor, the US Army had a constant need to replace the men wounded or killed in it’s course. The fellow we bought it from told us that the Army bought a swampy area from his family and they came in and built the camp there, complete with roads and buildings with asphalt roofing, but apparently dozens of Quonset huts as well. After the war ended the Army just gave it all back to his family, since they no longer had much use for the place or hundreds of similar temporary bases needed for a total war effort.

Renovation is becoming more and more popular these days, especially in busy cities like Chicago. The bottom line is that space is now one of the most precious commodities out there, so making the most out of what space you have is a major priority. An old, dilapidated building can be wasting the potential of a great location, but the right Chicago home remodeling contractor can turn even the most dire of situations into something that anyone can be truly proud to own. The bottom line is that the right work can pay for itself down the road, as the increase in value and satisfaction that a great job provides is simply unbeatable.

Of course to be happy with a renovation job, it has to be done right. This might sound like something straight forward, but there are a lot of different factors involved. Anyone can claim to be an expert in this field, but it takes a lot of experience to be able to provide a consistent and reliable service that makes sure every customer is happy.

PostHeaderIcon Always Hire a Guard, No Matter What

A lot of people might think that the old style of security where you just have a man in the office watching TV screens all day to make sure that nothing is getting stolen is a bit out of date. Well, it might be a tiny bit out of date but the new system is not as different as you might think. The new CCTV security systems are pretty much the same, everything is recorded and saved locally, but it is then shipped to some big company where a man sitting behind a desk watches the screens, it is just about the same thing only it is outsourced now instead of being done in the building. It is of course one of the better systems out there as it can not be fooled in any way. When a person sees something going wrong they see it, there is no question or gray area that you get with a computer operated security system.

You see, while they might be cheaper than hiring a guard, they are definitely not better because some activities a computer just can not recognize while having a human there can make it just that much easier. They can see right away what is going on and put it to a stop if need be. A computer can not do that, it can only do what it was programmed to do and nothing else. That alone is why I believe that having a CCTV system in place is the best bet, even if you have that computer looking for incidences you should still have a human there checking it just in case something is going to go wrong with the system. I know that I would if I still owned a store and I suggest that you follow suit and do the same.
