When it comes to DIY roof replacement, we’ve seen it all.

We have seen the team of guys who have some respectable construction skills who are able to get the job done reasonably well. We have also seen the savings-conscious homeowner who patches a leak in his roof himself with completely inappropriate materials.

Top 6 Mistakes to Avoid in Strip Mall Construction

Strip mall

Strip malls, or open-air shopping centers, have become a mainstay of American retail construction in most of our urban and suburban areas.

These little shopping centers have become so ubiquitous. We rely on them so much; it’s hard to imagine one failing.

But they do fail. Sometimes developers build too much space, or too little. Or they create a bunch of units that are poorly arranged. Businesses who rent them have a hard time succeeding.
