Sustainably Grown Timber Compliments Energy Efficiency of True North Log Homes

True North Log Homes

Built from from white pine heartwood timber that is sustainably grown in northern Ontario and Quebec (certified by the Forest Stewardship Council), this stunning log home comes to us from True North Log Homes.

While reminiscent of the rustic, breezy log home of the distant past, these structures are tech-savvy and utilize computerized machinery and careful preparation of timber to save labor time on-site.

Modular components allow for flexibility in design, as well as reducing the carbon footprint, and exterior construction that takes only a few days to complete. Joined together without screws or nail, the exterior shell is weather-tight. To make up for wood shrinkage, patented systems tighten the house to eliminate the need for chinking of holes.

Interiors can be retrofitted to increase sustainability with options including energy efficient windows, solar panels, spray foam insulation, soundproofing with sheep’s wool, and radiant floor heat.

President of True North Homes, Rob Wrightman, built this log cabin for his family, and frequently opens it up to show his customers the advantages of living in a log home.

Priority One Roofing Launches to Highlight Advantages

Toronto, ON, (PRWEB) November 13, 2009

Leading Toronto and GTA roofing company, Priority One Roofing, is pleased to announce the launch of, which highlights the company’s unique technical achievements.

The 3D roofing estimate software is the second major technical advancement developed by Priority One, following their Infrared Roof Survey system. The new site outlines the benefits of both.

“We developed Infrared Roofing Survey first. It lets us use the latest infrared technology to remove the guess work from estimates and have pinpoint accuracy in diagnosing leaks on commercial Flat Roofs in Toronto, saving our customers substantial costs,” says Priority One Roofing Vice President, Trevor Edwards. “Having developed the Infrared Roofing Survey, the residential 3D roofing estimate was not a stretch for us technically,”

Priority One is the first and only Ontario roofing company to offer 3D imaging in its client proposals. The 3D roofing estimate was the culmination of a two-year process to provide more detail in roofing proposals. “Many roofers were giving customers little more than a scribbled note and we saw an opportunity to set ourselves apart by giving them total transparency in a more detailed proposal,” says Edwards.

The new site carries over 15 pages of content describing the features and benefits of all of Priority One’s residential and commercial roofing services and a Resources section with information helpful to anyone interested in a new roof, roof repair or roof maintenance. There are plans to add web pages to the site on an ongoing basis. But, with specific pages for each system, the site features Priority One’s technical advancements prominently, including in the web address –

“We want to emphasize what makes us different to other roofing companies and 3D roofing estimates and Infrared Roofing Surveys are a big part of that, so they are a big part of the new site,” explains Edwards. “But there’s a lot of other roofing information too.”
