February 4, 2014 is right around the corner, and after a year hiatus of attending the IBS, Classic Lamp Posts, and TerraCast Products, will be exhibiting at the 2014 NAHB International Builders Show in Las Vegas in South Hall booth # 2130. If you feel compelled, like my wife, to make a pilgrimage to #Vegas, feel free to come by and see us by using this free expo pass www.BuildersShow.com/free.
Our last show, January 2012, at the massive Orange County convention center in Orlando, FL brought great business and opportunity from the homebuilders market. Builders are a great audience for Classic Lamp Posts PolySteel™ products, as they are made to withstand the harshest of environments and have the true composite construction to withstand the elements for years. Sure, aluminum lamp posts are marginally more inexpensive – want to see what happens to them after a year or two in the field? This is probably why they offer you a discount of 40% off what standard wholesale pricing should be. I think that those manufacturers believe that because, in most cases, after a builder completes a neighborhood, he turns it over to the HOA for maintenance and walks away. The builder is never bothered with the nightmare of maintaining the poles he installed.
If you’re one of the builders who take an active role in the management of the community it builds, I trust you’d make a decision not only on price, but on durability. PolySteel™ Products offer both long term durability and a friendly price point to keep all jobs on budget. We even have a quick ship program whereby we can ship within 48 hours – saving precious time, or salvaging someone’s oversight, in a hurry!
I’ve got a proposition for you homebuilders out there who need decorative, antique style street lighting poles in your community installations. If you read this blog, mention it when you call to order your light poles, and when you buy one, I’ll give you one (and only one) for free, up to 9’, on all orders placed before April 1, 2014. I guarantee that you’ll find our poles are the longest lasting and best looking for the longest period of time. It’s time to choose Classic Lamp Posts.
