Jordi Barrenechea and his brother Luis are Skyping from one of Wire Mesh Corporation’s (WMC) six locations, this one in Conroe, Texas. “We have a set of values: work with passion, work as a unit. If we’re going to do something, we’re going to do it well. In the market that we are in, if you are not constantly improving and being more efficient, you are not going to compete.”

Cold Weather Construction

Across North America, cargo shorts, Capri pants and flip-flops are relegated to the back of the closet, with parkas, sweaters and boots taking their place. And just as we winterize our bodies and our cars with warm clothes and snow tires, we do much the same to our houses in preparation for the cold months ahead, from cleaning out gutters to sealing cracks around windows and doors, wrapping pipes with insulation, replacing the furnace filter, draining water from the outside faucet and – if there is a fireplace or woodstove – stocking up on firewood. And those who fail to prepare often pay the price with drafts and high heating costs or, even worse, mould, moisture damage or frozen pipes.
