In Uncertain Times, Olerio Homes Breaks Ground on New Development in North Dallas

DALLAS, Texas -- In uncertain times, Lou Olerio, President of Olerio Homes safely continues forward breaking ground on Modella Park, a gated neighborhood with 24 soft-contemporary patio homes.

Modella Park will feature four different floor plans designed by Watson Design Group. Beginning in the high $400's, the location is ideal being just south of Webb Chapel and Forest in Dallas. Olerio saw a need and an opportunity to bring new construction at an affordable price to a location that is still convenient to central Dallas.

Olerio, who has built close to 300 homes in Dallas, Texas says this development is exciting due to the combination of price point, quality product and location.

Unique Resume Gives Olerio Insight

As a Stockbroker during stock market crash of 2001 and developing Olerio Homes during the downturn in 2008, Olerio goes into the COVID-19 crisis with economic advice and experience.

He emphasizes taking precautions and altering the way we work but not stopping, especially with home building deemed an essential business operating under given guidelines.

"In any disruption, there are always opportunities. There are ways to identify the opportunities and you have to figure out how to take advantage of them. While it doesn't feel like it at the time, hindsight is 2020."

Olerio continues saying, "Since the city is on a shelter-in-place there are no open houses or showing and we will definitely see a slowdown of houses going under contract. But that will create opportunities to buy where people are getting cold feet."

For those wondering why it is good economically for construction to continue, with safety precautions implemented by the CDC and the City of Dallas, Olerio explains it is due to labor costs, "If we shut down completely that would be a major blow to the economic opportunities in North Texas leading to a labor shortage. If we keep working, we will reduce the pressures that come along with price increases that are associated with a shortage of labor."

He goes on to explain this further emphasizing the number of people it employs and that housing is always in demand. Having housing prices rise due to lack of demand is not what the economy needs.

As a company, Olerio Homes is utilizing software and taking advantage of this time. They are upgrading their website, implementing new software that will allow clients to view actual sections virtually in the homes and having 3-D models of new construction homes created.

DAPA Products Shares Reasons to Upgrade Product Quality

JASPER, Ala. -- DAPA Products, a window and door components manufacturer, shares reasons to upgrade supplies with virgin raw materials. DAPA realized early in their manufacturing establishment that many suppliers received less than quality products. DAPA wanted to change the industry. They provide quality supplies and stand behind each of their products, 100%. Suppliers around the globe depend on DAPA for high-quality supplies of extruded plastic products, window and door components, as well as upholstery products.

DAPA considers the following elements that make great products:

1. Streamlining the Process

When it comes to upholstery and fenestration products, streamlining involves three aspects. These are the system, the materials, and the process.

2. The System Is Key

The system of providing customers with excellent products does not include price consideration, according to DAPA. Their only concern is making the highest quality fenestration products. Through steady growth, DAPA began mixing materials and producing the DAPA Foam Spline. Foam spline was an innovation in the industry that significantly improved outcomes for screen industry workers.

3. The Right Materials

DAPA made it a mission from the beginning to use and produce only the highest quality of products. By using only the best virgin raw materials, DAPA can manufacture and provide this quality material in upholstery products. DAPA are specialists in the unique contours, complexity in design, and the highest precision requirements.

4. The Process Makes It Best

Due to the Foam Spline focus, DAPA increased its number of extrusion lines and production time to 24 hours a day. Along with the significant products of Foam Welt Cord and Foam Spline, DAPA provides multiple other products for this market and many others.

All companies can provide designs to order, but very few can give the order on time and with materials that last, as DAPA has always done.

5. Commitment

DAPA provides customers with the highest quality, on-time orders. This means competition, however, DAPA will not risk quality in order to give a cheaper cost. The quality that is provided to the customer will always remain the highest standards.

DAPA continues its growth with new products such as braided welt cord. As wholesale upholstery product suppliers, DAPA continues to advance in window screen products, as well as the window screen components our customers demand. The focus of DAPA is always customer first and only the highest quality product.

The DAPA Products team has a complete commitment to providing customers with the best service and highest quality products on the market! Customers love our commitment to bringing them the lowest possible prices as well. Contact a member of the team today at 1-800-229-3181 or visit to find out about getting the perfect spline to fit your needs.

About DAPA Products:

DAPA Products is known, not just for the Foam Welt Cord, but the highly demanded Foam Screen Spline, along with many more goods in the window, door, and upholstered furniture industries and braided products for the upholstery furniture industry. DAPA runs several extrusion lines 24 hours a day, 5 days per week. Foam Screen Spline has helped to reduce the stress of screening and now is the favored choice for many major manufacturers. Thanks to the support of our many friends and customers, a small beginning has proved to be highly successful.

Capitol Fence Shares Public Safety Tips Around Automatic Gates

AUSTIN, Texas -- Capitol Fence & Deck of Austin, Texas, learned there are an estimated 300 ER visits due to injuries from automated gates. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) notes that most serious injuries occur around public access gates found at an apartment building, condominiums, and gated communities. Electric gates installed in these places are often outdated and no longer meet current safety guidelines.

Austin Electric Gates Safety Tips

If a home has an automatic security gate in Austin, children and vulnerable adults should learn these safety tips:
* Avoid "pinch points." Never stick hands, arms, feet, legs, or the head through gate openings.
* Check that a nationally recognized laboratory tested the automated gate, typically the ETL or UL.
* Don't play on or around the automatic gate.
* Never walk on foot through an automated gate intended for vehicles only. Use the separate pedestrian entrance at all times.

Risks of Automated Gates

Automated gate systems are subject to few safeguards and restrictions. "Safety by design," the belief that something well designed and adequately assembled will be safe, is the default for electronic gates. The most significant risk comes from improper installation.

Correctly installed gates still have these common risks:
* Crushing: Gates close with an individual in their path
* Drawing in: Gates catch on clothing and pulls the individual into their path
* Entrapment: Gates trap the individual while opening or closing
* Hooking: A protruding part of the gate system catches on the individual or their clothing
* Impact: An individual struck while the gate is opening or closing. The individual moves out of the way before becoming entrapped
* Shearing: Gates damage a parallel object such as a wall; shearing incidents can derail a gate system

Automatic gate systems operate until the gates are either fully closed or fully open. The gates don't react to outside influences, which is where most of the danger arises.

Get a Professional to Install an Automatic Gate Safely

Although automatic gate systems in Austin residential homes are potentially dangerous when installed or misused, they're not unsafe overall. When used correctly and given appropriate care, automatic gates can be a useful and safe way to let people in and keep people out of housing development.

Hire professional Austin entry gate installers when you need repairs or a new gate. Although fly-by-night installation companies are cheap, they're also more dangerous.

When searching for an automatic fence gate, Austin residents should always look for a certified installer. Capitol Fence & Deck is certified to correctly and safely install your automated gate system and meets UL 325 standards.

About Capitol Fence & Deck

Capitol Fence and Deck has been providing the top-level design and functionality for residential fences since 1992 in Austin, Texas. Delivering and installing custom wood, plank, chain link, privacy, wrought iron, and many other types of fences along with walk gates, entry gates, handrails, and much more, there are no other fence contractors throughout the Greater Austin Area that can match our selection and customer service.

Capitol Fence and Deck has built a strong history of exceptional customer support and service. Quality is one of the most essential aspects of any Austin Fence Company and when you want the best, only Capitol Fence and Deck will do.
