I’ve never been a big fan of the Grammy Awards. (Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy the artists, but dislike the process.) From the red carpet, to the lame interviews, the entire process has always seemed terribly overdone. You don’t have to look any further than the 1990 Best New Artist Award. Milli Vanilli, with huge sales numbers, completely bamboozled the recording academy when they later admitted that they hadn’t sang a note in any of their recordings.
The home improvement industry, unfortunately, is similar to the recording academy. However, we don’t need more fluff, more fake, or more silicone. We need realism, return on investment ideas with much less fanfare, and a whole lot more, “roll up the sleeves, this is how we get it done,” gritty attitude. Therefore, I am proud to introduce to you the Larson Family of Companies’ nominees for 2012.
Product of the Year: While its older brother, ABC Seamless Siding, typically gets all of the glory, the fanfare, and the beautiful before and after pictures, the real blue collar worker that protects and comforts home owners of all income brackets, is ABC Seamless Gutters and Downspouts. This hardworking product, in the beautiful fascia gutter design system, can accommodate 30% more rainwater than the closest competition.
Best New Poduct: OK, well not really new, but our latest addition to our product line is the Gerard Metal Roof. This is not your typical pole barn type sheeting, but an effective 26 gauge, stone coated roofing product that is guaranteed to withstand 120 mph wind and 2.5″ hail. A Gerard Metal Roof System will truly be the last roof you install.
Best Solo Performance: THV Compozit Windows. Whether a single opening, or a house full, these rugged, built to last windows, will bring years of efficiency and beauty to you and your family. Almost 214% stronger than standard vinyl windows, a THV Compozit Window is good for you, good for your home, and good for the environment.
