NCSG Innovation 2014 Review

We were delighted to attend and sponsor this year's NCSG Innovation 2014 held in Columbus, Ohio at the Hyatt Regency hotel from the 18th through the 22nd of March. We were met with an impressive turnout as well as standout enthusiasm from our visitors looking to learn more about our latest product developments.

"I thought the show was well attended this year, and we had strong interest in our PolyPro vent system as well as our relining system for zero clearance fireplace chimneys." - Kevin Bernier, New England Regional Sales Manager.

We were happy to sponsor a coffee break and participate in the show's "Seek to Win!" contest where visitors competed to win prizes by visiting us and other participants at our booths. We had a great time meeting old and new faces throughout the show, while answering questions about our vent and chimney systems.

Please be sure to join us for NCSG 2015 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, it will be a show you won't want to miss!

DuraVent In The Field: Painted Post, New York

Howard Berman, M&G DuraVent's Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager, received a very nice email from Fred and Carole Clinton. Please read for note below:

Howard,

My name is Fred Clinton and the New York State Chimney Sweep Guild held a workshop last week at the apartment my wife and I are building in Painted Post, NY. Will Dawson told me that you were responsible for DuraVent's extremely generous contribution to this project. The 10 inch chimney system that you donated was installed during the construction last Wednesday. I've attached a couple pictures of the chimney as it is seen above the roof. The third picture shows Walt Kelly working to complete the facade, which includes the brick chase that conceals the chimney where it joins to the top of the smoke chamber by means of an anchor plate.

We had 15 paid registrants from 4 states in attendance. They all had the opportunity to participate in Wednesday's installation and get some experience and exposure to your excellent product. Thank you for your support of the Guild. I've been out of Sweeping for quite a few years now, but it's great to see you continuing the long practice of manufacturers supporting the important work of education and networking.

My wife Carole and I want, of course, to thank you personally for helping make our beautiful Priorfire a reality. It will be a centerpiece of our new home and a cherished treasure in the years to come. If you ever find yourself in the Corning, NY area, we hope you'll stop by to see it for yourself. Thanks again for your help and support. It is deeply appreciated.

Fred and Carole Clinton

New Home Sales Continue to Trend Relatively Flat in February

New Home Sales Continue to Trend Relatively Flat in February

Sales of newly-built, single-family homes fell 3.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 440,000 units in February, according to newly released figures from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Census Bureau.

"There is no doubt that the persistently bad weather took a toll on sales in February," said Kevin Kelly, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder from Wilmington, Delaware. "However, builders continued to increase their inventory of for-sale homes, indicating they still anticipate a relatively strong spring buying season."

"We still expect 2014 will be a strong year for housing," said NAHB chief economist David Crowe. "The first two-month average of 2014 is exactly in line with where 2013 left off. If not for the unusual weather, we would easily be ahead of last year's pace. We also continue to see household formations and pent-up demand driving sales forward."

Regionally, new-home sales activity fell 32.4 percent in the weather-battered Northeast, 1.5 percent in the South and 15.9 percent in the West. The Midwest posted a gain of 36.7 percent, stemming from an unusually low January figure.

The inventory of new homes rose to 189,000 units in February, a 5.2-month supply at the current sales pace.
