You might ask the question
“When is the best time to secure my home?”

Given the reliably unreliable weather, Sahara dust, seas the temperature of a hot tub and remarkably heavy ‘dumps’ of rain, There’s never been a better time than now!

At ECMIL we are great believers in making a plan for home renovation and maintenance.

Break the problem down into roof, walls, guttering, runoffs, storm drains and all PVC/ CPVC piping.  

Also check on the condition of drains outside of your property. 
It’s our personal and social responsibility to maintain what we can.  A blocked communal storm drain will back up with flood water, wrecking roads and property and flooding places you never quite imagined, until it happens.

If we have become so zealous about our home security these days, it makes sense that we protect ourselves equally against nature’s elements, as we do human predators.

Water and wind are coming in no small measure at some point.  We must deflect, resist and channel those elements to minimise the stress and damage on our homes, families, livelihoods and our neighbours.

Our rule is always the same.  
If it needs replacing, building, clearing, reorganising, put it on your list and prioritise.  

If it’s a budget issue, do as many of the lesser jobs around the major ones, then do initial fixes on the larger ones, which can at the very lease, secure for the duration.

If you are not sure how to do all of that, find a local tradesman or contractor / builder you trust and get an assessment made. 

Most contractors don’t mind breaking jobs into phases to ease the burden of construction bills.  That way you can deal with high risk now and lower risk later; even do the low risk yourself!

It has become blatantly obvious that we live in a region where the increasing voracity of storms places us all at much greater risk than ever before.  Global warming is a reality, but if we make wise choices of location, design and materials with a strong eye for detail, we can avoid or lessen the inevitable impact.

ECMIL's integrated collection of steel and PVC/ CPVC products will address the majority of construction and resilience requirements from roof to walls and foundations, water collection and water disposal, with a robust range of time and weather tested items.

We pride ourselves in playing a major role in material fabrication and prompt supply to the construction industry throughout the Caribbean, with consolidated shipments to get every project on its way, quickly and efficiently.  Our cost effective ex factory pricing will also be of greatest benefit to your budget.
