Quality Finishing is a Great Start.
Whether you are a construction pro or a DIY novice, everyone wants a quality finish to their construction project.
Sadly there are far too many builders and construction companies who ‘throw’ their latest construction project together, then smooth out the edges, paint over the cracks and bluff the final presentation. The outcome, over a reasonably short space of time, can be downright catastrophic.
In our world where there are few qualifications apart from experience, remember, reputations count. Examples of previous work count. References also go the distance
when you want continuous work. Work excellence, quality finish, pleasant attitude, honesty, cleanliness, tidiness and accommodation will place you at the top of the list.
A quality finish is created by a number of elements; ECMIL’s range of international quality materials, a working knowledge of them, how they are systematically applied and a focus on detail, in order to achieve a ‘professional’ result. Please be aware, great finishing speaks for itself. You will know it when you see it.
We live in an information age.
From Google to social media, chat rooms and materials suppliers, there are more than enough instructional videos online these days, to build an acceptable public building, let alone a private house!
The knowledge is not the problem. It’s the attitude.
If you are doing the job, get and feel educated and feel the confidence to produce really good work. It truly is a buzz to get it right!
The most effective rule of thumb is to gather a working knowledge of the materials and the skills required, including initial and other fine details. Ask a pro! I’m sure they will tell you how, then make a plan. Without one, you will undoubtedly encounter a vast number difficulties which you could have resolved prior to beginning the project.
If you are a pro, but have little or no experience of a specific skill, again, ask. You can’t know everything. That’s how we all learn.
Whether builder or novice, if it’s more than a one person job, collect a good team.
It makes a project move like clockwork and the more varied the skills the more capable the group. Talented people tend to take the initiative. They listen and act and have pride in their work.
In the aftermath, never be mean. Refer good tradesmen to friends, neighbours or other builders. Spread the word for quality work. That’s the way the industry can blossom and strengthen.
We need tradespeople who are altogether better than the last generation, to meet and utilise fresh technology and better construction practices.
At ECMIL we like to work with those who’s work ethic and standards are high. It makes our products look as they are, exceptional. It makes our customers confident to buy and employ regionally and locally.

ECMIL is very much at the centre of an ongoing development in the regional construction industry and we see this as a responsibility, in a geographic location, often dogged by consistently adverse weather conditions.
