2022 A Fresh Start with Steel!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to a fresh start with Steel.
Your new build, upgrade, renovation or refurbishment
is ready to become a reality.

Time to finalise your plan; your material list; contractor or DIY?  It’s your decision.  If you have the skill and get some of our quality assistance, then go for it!

Our experienced sales representatives will guide you through the process, so you receive the best quality products at
ex-factory prices, promptly delivered to begin your work. 

ECMIL has the materials, choices and supply chain to satisfy your construction requirements.  From foundation steel to roof sheeting, our materials will bring a new style to every project, while keeping your budget and quality on track.

  • A full range of flashing and accessories
  • water tanks and PVC piping for reliable water storage
  • Rebar and welded mesh for strong foundations, walls, castings and pathways. 
  • Nails headed and headless for all construction needs
  • wheelbarrows to move materials
  • chain link fencing and barbed wire to secure your property.
Building strength performance and durability

All of our products will reliably protect 
and enhance your home.

The building process should always seek to raise the quality of life for those who live and work within that environment.

The responsible construction industry continuously works towards a greater global understanding of eco friendly and environmentally aware materials and practices.

This in turn has impacted positively on our development and storm resistance standards.

If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is a long awaited sense of order and discipline, which has reigned in many poor working environments and provided necessary guidelines to which the Caribbean construction industry must now conform.

These fresh new protocols and guidelines have reduced some of the inconsistent quality to which the general public often fall prey.

For our own part, ECMIL follows the path of constantly evolving building codes and industry requests and must consistently stay ahead of these rules and suggestions, as we supply highest quality products.

We ask our customers, contractors, engineers, architects, and draftsmen and women to do the same.  Especially when it comes to good building practices to resist storm conditions.

The management of your property is life long work,
from erosion and decay, to maintenance of your surroundings.  
Yes, by using specific products you can become environmentally savvy, but that does not necessarily mean that you care for your immediate environment or the impact on your neighbours.

Wind, and rain are the obvious predators to a passive structure such as your home.  That’s when erosion and decay do their worst to deteriorate your prime investment.

The golden rule.  Push water away from your structure.

Reliable roof sheeting, made from recycled steel, K-style aluminium guttering and PVC downpipes, carry the water to galvanised water tanks, or to storm drains, and relieve the saturation near your building.

Your home will become environmentally friendly and maybe that friendship will extend to your neighbours, as you work together to keep communal storm drains clear at all times.

We can’t stop severe weather, but we can collectively reduce flooding and damage created by unnecessary blockages, which stop the sensible management of heavy rains.

Boundary fencing can also be used to consolidate your property.  Fenced land with well established low walls between fence poles, and nearby run off drains, go a long way to control erosion, while adding appropriate layers of security, value and peace of mind.

This is the time to get it done.

With quality materials from ECMIL, your work today will last, which will in turn reduce your annual maintenance costs.

There is no doubt that the up keep of any building is a recurrent expense, which often needs refurbishment at unexpected times. Therefore, when projects are designed to include reliable materials, the ‘mileage’ on your investment is critical, given recent rising prices.

It is now a worrisome fact that due to the Covid pandemic, access to materials and their cost are already determining factors at all levels of construction globally.

Space, distance and the evolving nature of a home, where day to day living has substantially increased, must be the prominent issues to better confront future pandemic problems.

Steel has become a durable consideration
for non traditional uses.
This alone, in conjunction with Plyco Plyfoil and other forms of insulation and natural ventilation, may give new levels of style, protection and comfort to Caribbean homes, as well as innovation to the palette of architects.

Talk to us today.  Let’s review that list and your plan, to get that well needed project started.  Then you will discover why we are ECMIL, The Steel of The Region.
