Skaters Love Gators

We are excited to announce a slight departure from our interior focused materials, as we bring on Gator Skins skate ramp material.  These 1/4” thick, incredibly durable sheets, create a better textured, more durable and cheaper ramp surface that performs better than comparable products on the market. 

We already have one successful installation at a snowboard park at SugarBush in Vermont.  If you are a skater, or have friends that are, please share the news that this great material is available locally and at a great price.  Call us at 919.929.3009 or email info@caragreen.com for more information and like us on Facebook.

Leading The Way In Memphis

Leave it to the progressive folks at Countertops of Memphis to be a forerunner in becoming certified in Lapitec.  They attended and executed the one day training and are ready to start taking jobs for Lapitec.  We are responsible for getting the word out and bringing them business for outdoor kitchens and modern interior flooring, walls and countertops.  One of the few shops that believes in social media, this team is ready to be at the forefront and not afraid to take the leap into new products that will drive and secure their future business.  We look forward to sending a lot of Lapitec business their way.

It’s Not Easy Being GreenBuild

While we had a great time at GreenBuild 2016 in LA, it was because we were able to cohesively bring three of our brands together as Modern Surfaces:  Durat, IceStone and PaperStone.  This collection of partners and products made a big splash with our Create Better campaign.  (more on this later). However, the overall feel of GreenBuild as a show has changed - and not for the better.  There were not many building materials there, and those that were felt like clones of one another, with no real sustainability story.  The people across from us were selling massage chairs.  This was nice for us, but not sure this is the market for $7000 chairs.  And why were they not vetted?  Next year is in Boston, and it will be interesting to see the direction that show takes.
