Renovating The Oklahoma Office For The Winter

oklahoma office gets updateWinter can be harsh on your office, especially your roof. About a quarter of the heat in your office is lost through its roof, so protecting your office from the elements like wind, snow, sleet, and hail might be the difference between a warm, comfortable office and a drafty, cold one. Even if you live in a climate where you don’t have to shovel snow, you still need to protect your roof from seasonal hazards. We hired an Oklahoma City roofing company to winterize the rooftop and get us prepared for winter rains and hail storms.

Regular routine check-ups of your roof are essential to maintaining its integrity. The older a roof is, the more work it will probably need, so you will first need to assess the age of your roof. A typical asphalt roof can last up to 20 years, but if you are missing any shingles or you lack insulation, you are losing heat through your roof, and it is costing you money. Another sign your roof is in need of repair is that the shingles are bucking and curling; this will definitely cause problems when winter comes. Watch, too, the valleys of your roof. If they are compromised, your roof may sustain leaks and cause excess damage. When you inspect your roof, or you have a licensed OKC contractor inspect your roof, make sure the flashing on the chimney is watertight, otherwise, this will be another area where water can seep into your office. An obvious sign of a roof problem is sunlight peering through the roof boards. Check your attic during the day for any signs of sunlight and for moisture in your attic; these are clear signs your attic is compromised and must be fixed before the winter sets in.

The best way to protect your office and family from the elements is to ensure the roof is structurally sound before any problems arise. Since heat rises, if your roof has any leaks or holes, the heat is escaping through these spaces, costing you lots of unnecessary money. It is important to check your shingles and to properly fix any lose or missing ones before they cause greater problems. You will also want to look closely at the shingles; over time the granules that compromise the shingles break down and allow sun, wind and snow and even bugs to infiltrate your roof. In addition to an annual assessment of your roof before winter time, you should check your roof after any major storm to determine the damage, if any. Even something as simple as a rainstorm can wreak havoc on your office.

What steps can you take to protect your roof when completing an inspection? Hire a tree cutting service in OKC to make sure the leaves and branches don’t pile up, causing debris to get under the shingles. Check your gutters and drains and remove the bunches of leaves that accumulate; this way water and ice won’t build up on the leaves, making your roof more susceptible to leaks and water damage. Do a thorough inspection of your roof’s trusses to make sure they are able to handle excess weight; in case you compile a lot of snow in winter. If you notice problems with leaks, holes, broken trusses, or wet insulation to name just a few, contact a contractor to rectify the small problem before it becomes a large problem. Addressing the issue before winter is ideal; finding out you have a structural roof problem in the dead of winter will likely be impossible to attend to until spring. By then, the problems could compound, costing you, even more, money than had you taken care of the issues before the bad weather.

While inspecting your chimney may not seem like an important element when assessing your roof, it is something you should check, as well. Check the flashing against the chimney and roof to see if it has cracks or is rusted; this could be an area for leaks. You may also want to have the chimney cleaned to prepare for the cold winter season.

There are many companies who offer an assessment of your office’s internal temperature and the amount of heat and cold that escapes through your windows, doors, and roof. This simple inspection can save you money all year long on energy costs, so it is important to conduct one before the snow and ice make checking out the roof a hazard. This assessment will let you know if your roof is properly insulated and ventilated, two key elements in a “healthy” roof. You may notice that one room in your office is hotter or colder than the others; this could be an insulation issue. When you have an office energy audit, you will be able to determine where your roof is lacking so that you can address how to fix the problem. Simply sealing and insulating your roof may help to eliminate drafts in your office.

You will also want to inspect inside your house for water stains, cracks in the ceiling or walls, or any obvious leaks. A spike in your heating and cooling bills will also be an indication that the heat/cold is escaping, potentially costing you thousands of dollars.

Contact your insurance company to see if they can help you with any expenses. They may pay for a preventative maintenance trip or possibly for some repairs. Each businesses insurance plan is different, so before you invest in costly work, make sure you know what they will cover if anything.

So before the winter winds start blowing, either hop up on that roof or better yet, pay an expert to take a good look at your roof. Remove excess debris and inspect the gutters, flashing, and shingles for any damage. Crawl in the attic space during the day to look for signs of daylight; if sunlight can get through, so can rain, snow and other undesirables. Check your trusses to make sure they are secure and your insulation for wet spots and potential problems. Assess your office from the inside to see if you have drafty spots in your office or signs of roof damage from the inside. Remember, the money you invest now in your roof will save you money on your energy bills all throughout the year!

New Projects For 2018

Welcoming 2018 With A Bang!

application developmentThe new year should prove to be productive for our staff here. We have a handful of new projects that we are excited to launch and a batch of new clients we are excited to take on. For starters, we will be unveiling some new software that our clients will be offered. Most of our SAS solutions have been sold to other developers that also build websites. What we wanted to do in 2018 was bring the consumer (our clients) an arsenal of software tools to help them better market their websites online and give their customers various tools to help them better manage those relationships. Things like WordPress integrated client portals and backend software solutions for their clients to log in and book appointments or ask questions was something that was requested. So we came up universal solutions that all of our clients could use, something that could easily be installed as a WordPress plugin then activated and managed by the client. We will be offering management services to install and configure the plugins but to start in 2018 we will be launching them. One of our new client projects will be for a Chiropractic clinic similar to this site https://www.performancechiropractic.clinic/ where patients can log in and manage their profile including results as their back pain improves over the course of the months after treatment. Patients will be able to log in and use a rating system to express their pain levels so that the corresponding provider can better gauge the effectiveness of the chiropractic care being performed on the patient. There is also a towing company that will have a site similar to this Calgary towing company https://towtruckcalgary.ca/ that will have a mobile app developed for stranded users to log in and sees how close a tow truck is for dispatch. This will be especially convenient during the cold winter months when Calgary turns into a frozen tundra. 2018 is sure to ring in some exciting new projects and app development. We will keep you posted as we make progress and develop these new products. Software and automation is only becoming more of a necessity as our lives and devices demand it. Stay tuned as we update this blog more regularly in 2018.

Oklahoma Hair Transplant Website

Oklahoma Hair Transplant Website
We are excited to announce that we built and launched a new website for an Oklahoma client that specializes in men’s hair transplants.

The new website is mobile responsive and has some cool bew added features that the old site does not have. There is a new contact form that allows users to contact, submit, and engage in live chat should they need questions answered immediately. Hair transplants in Oklahoma are becoming more common as high winds from tornadoes seem to be blowing the hair follicles right off the scalp. That of course is a joke, but I wouldn’t doubt if it was real. Having the website mobile friendly will also help users sign in to the website from mobile devices and choose hair styles, hair line, part lines, and more. hair transplant websiteThe hair transplant industry has come along way since the 80’s when men didn’t have these types of advanced options. And now with the web technology catching up, we are making it easier for recipients of the transplants to render 3D models of their new transplants and decide beforehand how they want the procedure done. Also on the new website is a render engine that will allow for realtime rendering of the transplant. This will allow a potential patient to login using a mobile device, scan their own face with the built in camera and render a model of the finished procedure. So far this technology has really helped potential patients make the decision that was previously difficult to make. They are now given the opportunity to learn so much more about the transplant than previously was available and it’s increasing the amount of business referrals they are getting to the website. We look forward to updates in the future that include more advanced technology as it relates to men’s hair transplant technology.

Huntersville North Carolina

Huntersville North Carolina

New Location Coming Soon!

Exciting news!! We have plans in place to open up a satellite location in Huntersville North Carolina. There is a team of Web Designers already there that has been building websites for local businesses including the local Chamber of Commerce. We are going to be partnering with them to expand from Canada and the Pacific North West over to the East Coast. Having a presence in North Carolina will allow us the flexibility of meeting and building relationships with local businesses in North Carolina, South Carolina, and the surrounding states. There will be a team of four people working out of Barista Craft Coffe using their Wifi until an official office is located. We will be going through a local property management company called Hecht Property Management to find our official location. We will post an official announcement when we are all moved in.

 

Sites Built For Huntersville Businesses

Check out this list of 5 local businesses that have used our team to build their website. Some of these sites are outside of Huntersville near Davidson and Cornelius. There are examples here also that are a little outdated but were great sites for the time.

Additional Opportunities For Employees In Huntersville

lake norman north carolinaIt’s cold up here in Canada, having a satellite office in Huntersville North Carolina will be a luxury for sure. With Lake Norman near by, we anticipate purchasing a company boat for client entertainment. Probably something along the line of a pontoon boat unless the owners decide something a little more luxurious is needed. Having access to a lake for team-building events and preparing employees in management for Six Sigma training will be a focal point in 2018. In addition to adding qualified web designers in the local market, we will be adding regional sales staff to accompany our team there.  Strayer University has a great program and the students will already be local and ready for an internship. We will be looking to the class of 2017 for possible hiring solutions. In addition to web design and sales, we will be preparing to hire the following positions in our Huntersville location.

• IT Manager

• HR Director

• Creative Director

• SEO Engineer

• Graphic Designer

• Software Programmer

Breaking Ground

It’s possible that the folks over at Hecht Property Management won’t be able to find us the retail space we desire. We won’t know for sure until we reach out with a thorough request. We have been contemplating a warehouse style open floor plan that would allow the entire team to be in view of one another. There are some available warehouse spaces here in the Huntersville North Carolina area. That is a possibility if we can find the right one that is suited to our needs. Some of these warehouses are designed for outbound shipping which wouldn’t be one of our services, so a loading dock would be unnecessary.

2018 The Year of Growth

Moving into 2018 we look to expand our reach not only physically across into parts of the United States, but globally through the reach of the internet. A lot of our current client base is coming out of the Southwest regions of the United States. This is primarily due to the fact that we have a sales engineer on staff that has connections to Arizona and New Mexico. We are excited about all of the growth happening through 2017 and leading into 2018.

Protecting Yourself From Identity Theft

Identity Theft

hackers steal data at gas pump

Identity theft affects close to 15 million Americans each year. This number has increased dramatically with the rise of technology. Online identify theft is a convenient method for stealing consumer information from retail establishments and restaurants that process credit and debit card information. There was an incident that took place back in 2013 where Target was hacked and 40 millions of credit card numbers were stolen. This is a very sophisticated version of a more common problem, hackers are stealing credit card information and identities from almost everywhere. A very popular scam has been taking place at gas stations where hackers will install a physical component inside the pumps computer that captures credit and debit information has someone is fueling their vehicle. Apparently there is a universal key that is obtainable online that allows hackers to open up the face of the pump and hack the pump using advanced technologies.

How To Keep Your Information Safe

Start by never giving out your personal information to inbound callers asking for financial details or any other information that seems sketchy. In the same manner, do not reply to unsolicited emails asking for personal information, or clicking links in those emails if they were unsolicited. Install and maintain virus protection software on your computers, purchase them, and keep them up to date. Make sure that if you are using wifi in a public place that it’s password protected, and never access sensitive information like bank accounts on public networks. If you are making purchases online, confirm that the source you are buying from is legitimate and not a spoof site. Knowing the difference between http:// and https:// will help you to better understand where to make safer transactions. Secure your home network, install a firewall, and password protect your wifi and all personal computers in the house including kids computers, laptops, tablets, phones, and anything else that can be accessed through your network. hard drive shreddingPutting computers and other electronic devices that live on the network “to sleep’ is a great way to keep the devices off the network while they are not being used. If at some point the computers, tablets, phones, or other network compatible electronic devices become outdated and you dispose of them, be sure to either pull the hard drive out yourself and destroy it with a hammer, or contract a hard drive destruction service to pick up your outdated electronics and dispose of them. Business like that have industrial strength hard drive shredders that literally shred the drives into scrap metal, leaving NO CHANCE for hackers to retrieve personal data off of those drives. In the picture to the right you can see how impossible it would be for a hacker to steal any information from that hard drive after it’s been destroyed and shredded.

Moving Forward

If you have not been following these basic guidelines I suggest you start. No time like the present to secure your identity and your personal data. When you are out and about, it is suggested that you use your debit card as a credit card when possible. I have found that at the gas pump if I choose credit over debit it allows me to run the card as a credit card. In this case I only have to enter my city zip as opposed to my debit PIN number. I have made a habit out of doing this and so far, so good. Hopefully these few pointers and resources will help you make better decisions online, and out in public.

Web Design For New Jersey Movers

Web Design For New Jersey Movers

So when a local New Jersey moving company reached out for a custom design, we didn’t hesitate to deliver one of our best design concepts. We were familiar enough with the area of New Jersey that they serviced that we were able to create a custom look and feel that surprised even the locals. In addition to our design, we made it mobile responsive and also added a local GPS app that allowed the local residence to monitor the moving truck before it arrived to the home and after it departed to deliver the customers belongings either to a storage unit or the customers new home. This feature was made into an app and also embedded into the website. If you are unfamiliar with how moving companies bill, it’s common to bill for travel time, load and unload time. This app/widget also allowed the business to monitor the moving trucks and make sure the movers weren’t making any unnecessary stops along the way.

This was one of those projects that started out as web design and moved into app development and custom programming. Moving services in the U.S. are becoming more and more efficient and affordable. To make a long distance move from New Jersey to Canada once would have cost you an arm and a leg, however now with efficient travel guides, GPS systems, two way moving options, and online communications, businesses more than ever are providing affordable moving services and we would be pleased to design web sites for all of them.
