RBC 2017 Newsletter

January 10, 2017

Ray Building Co. has become well grounded in the Mountain Brook, AL repair and remodeling market as a second generation, family-owned business. In 2016, our work ranged from very small repairs to complete tear downs. We remained well balanced within our church and community through volunteer work and memberships in social and professional organizations. In 2016, we were also proudly inducted into the Birmingham Business Journal’s Veteran’s of Influence inaugural class for excelling in our chosen career field.

We are rolling into 2017 as strong as ever with several key events and programs that we want to share with our friends in the form of a “newsletter.”


Key events during the first quarter of the calendar year:

 ·       We are happily marketing our annual Spring Kitchen and Bath Blitz in partnership with NeedCo Cabinetry which provides our clients with leveraged savings on their projects. We will help design-build several kitchens and baths (sometimes attic or basement conversions) in a quick-start manner for families that have been on the fence about moving forward but for one reason or another couldn’t pull the plans together, or didn’t know who to talk to.

 

·       We are also excited about booking speaking engagements with Kim McBrayer, owner of spacecadetsorganizing.com on remodeling processes and home organization. Kim is a very active speaker and helped me with the closet system donation for the most recent specially designed home built for a local Iraq War Veteran. Kim and I will speak to a number of groups about our remodeling and organization project partnership.

 

 ·       We are attaining our Fortified Wise-Hurricane Structure certification on Jan 19th, which is a program under Strengthen Alabama Homes (SAH) mitigation program. This program will enhance our technical proficiency in storm and wind resistant building practices along the South Alabama Coast. In addition to belonging to the Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce, we have joined the Fairhope, AL Chamber of Commerce. We are also a member of the Baldwin County Homebuilder's Association and have begun contracting on a very selective basis in the Fairhope area using a core family of building professionals and excellent subcontractors.

 

We encourage anyone brainstorming their next project, in need of a general repair, or with a construction-related question or referral need, to not hesitate calling us or shooting an email. We are very, very accessible!
