Greetings!

Acclaimed deck builders and industry enthusiasts from around the world traveled to Nashville, TN for the Remodeling show, DeckExpo and JLC Live (RDJ) at the end of last month. NADRA held several events while in Nashville. Below is a recap from each exciting event. 

In the season of thanksgiving, THANK YOU to all of our members and friends who attended and participated in NADRA happenings at the show. To our members that couldn't make the trip, you were sincerely missed. With members like you, we are able to foster growth and positive change in the industry. Only through your support can we continue to fund important initiatives and lead the way.  We couldn't do it without you. We thank you for being an integral part of the association.

NADRA Members Spotlight:
Member Name:    Ted Tidmore

Position:   Owner
Member Category:   Builder
Location:   Sterling, VA
What inspired you to join NADRA?  We have a passion for designing and creating unique decks and integrating them into an overall outdoor oasis. We are well-known in our area for custom projects.

When did you first get involved with this industry?   1994

What was the first thing you ever built?   Patio with a small retaining wall and some landscaping. I always had a vision of doing what I'm doing now with outdoor projects.  

We want to get to know you, please tell us a little about your business:    I started this company in 1994. I began mowing lawns, then added patios, and then small, basic carpentry items. I am now building large, custom and unique projects. Our specialty is custom, one-of-a-kind projects including hardscaping, carpentry, pools, and more.  We build approx. 50 decks per year.

How do you define success?   When the client sees their project come to life and it's even more than they could have imagined. I am fortunate to have long-standing and loyal staff who are a large part of our success.

What advice would you like to share with fellow members that you have learned in your career?   Be selective in accepting new clients. Taking on new and exciting projects and integrating the industry's latest innovations is what will continue to put you ahead.

If you could ask your fellow industry professionals one question, what might it be? What is the biggest obstacle you face in continued growth?

What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?    Ski instructor in Colorado

A little more about Ted:   I have 4 children, three dogs and a wonderful wife. We enjoy spending time together attending football games, camping, and skiing.

Leadership:
The Indisputable Formula for Sustainable Success!

Friends, there are two things that we must be honest with ourselves about. #1 Am I taking the appropriate amount of risk? #2 Is my leadership style positively infectious? If you can honestly answer yes to both of these questions, you are well on your way to a successful career, business and life. Let me explain further. Read full article here
