    Home Construction & Improvement Website By Building Engineer

    Turns Three, Has Almost 100,000 Visitors A Month

    Articles a mix of building crew-tested products and home improvement projects

Newport, New Hampshire (April, 2010) The

    website, started as a hobby by building engineer Todd Fratzel, is celebrating just its third year, yet gets almost 100,000 unique visitors and 160,000 unique page views a month and has seen steady growth month after month.

    Fratzel is Principal Engineer for United Construction Corporation, a Design-Build Construction and Real Estate Development Company located in Newport, New Hampshire. He is also a DIY homeowner and father of two. My goal was to create a home improvement and construction-

    related website that provides accurate, reliable information that’s easy to find and use by

    contractors and DIY homeowners,” said Fratzel.

    The website’s articles are an informative mix of building crew-tested product reviews, advice on a variety of professional building techniques, such as framing and plumbing, and serious home improvement projects. These articles have drawn a growing audience of contractors and remodelers as well as homeowners looking for instructions and solutions to their homeowner issues.

    The experiences of my daily job fuel my writing and allow me to test tools and methods with working crews in both the residential and commercial construction industry,” said Fratzel. “In

    addition, many of the pieces I write are focused on projects that I do around the house like any other homeowner.”

    Fratzel also takes pride in answering every visitor who comments or emails him. Many of the emails and comments that he receives ask questions and seek advice on challenges that homeowners face on projects, and that is reflected in the most popular articles on the site, which are:

    - How To Insulate Basement Walls

    - Oil vs. Propane Heat How To Compare The Two Fuel Sources

    - Tool Reviews

    - Stair Building Free Spreadsheet Stair Calculator

    - How To Deal With Flooring Transitions

    - Articles On Home Improvement Related Coupons.

To celebrate three years in existence, this month is

    giving away a Paslode fuel-powered cordless framing nailer. And visitors can expect more giveaways in the months ahead.
