Greetings all. I hope all are well and comfortably sheltering in place.
I had hoped at this time I would be reporting our plans to return to work on construction projects. The Governor has, for the health and safety of Michiganders, decided to keep the stay-at-home order in place until May 1st. As updates become available, I will be sure to share them with you.
In the interim, I wanted to share that the McBride Remodeling Team and their families are currently healthy and all is well. We have a weekly phone meeting where we check on each other and offer support. Note that many of our staff continue to work from home on designs and planning future projects. If you have a project in mind, this is an excellent time to schedule a virtual consultation.
I also want to share that we are still doing emergency repairs and house checks. So if you have any issues call us we will respond ASAP. Earlier this week we fixed a leaking roof and a serious electrical problem.
In light of the nature of this pandemic, we are actively preparing enhanced safety protocols for when we start working on job sites again. Know that the health and safety of all of our workers, clients, and community are the highest priority for us; It was before the outbreak and will continue long after we close this chapter on COVID-19. We have long been a leader in the remodeling industry for keeping projects clean and safe.
On a different note, we all know and love Northern Michigan. Many of the folks up here are suffering and need assistance. McBride Remodeling, McBride Development, and Northland Self Storage will be supporting Manna, the local food bank. If you feel in your heart that you would like to help this worthy cause, please use the link above to visit their site and make a donation.
We would also encourage you to support our local restaurants. Many are offering gift cards for sale that can be used this summer when things return to normal. We’ve prepared this list of some of our favorites. Whether you make a donation to Manna or purchase a gift card (or two), please accept our thanks for your kind and generous support.
Stay strong and healthy.
