Happy Thanksgiving!

To all of our friends and family,
Have a Happy and Safe Thankgiving from all of us at Waller Construction!

Thanksgiving is a time of joy and happiness for most of us. It is also the most dangerous time of the year for kitchen fires. We want to help keep your family safe, so please keep fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous time. As you start preparing your holiday schedule and organizing that large family feast, remember, by following a few simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire.

Tips to keep your family safe during the holidays:
  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. If you haven’t changed your batteries, now is a good time to replace them.
  • Ensure that flammable objects like pot holders and paper towels are kept away from warm surfaces like cooktops.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen and know how to use it.
  • Avoid loose or dangling clothing when cooking to avoid getting caught on something or catching your clothes on fire.
Thanksgiving by the numbers
  • Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by Christmas Day, Christmas Eve, and the day before Thanksgiving.
  • In 2016, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,570 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires.
  • Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
  • Cooking equipment was involved in almost half of all reported home fires and home fire injuries, and it is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.

We want YOU to enjoy your time with family and friends! Please keep these tips and others in mind and enjoy your time with those that mean the most to you!

Happy Thankgiving!

From all of us at Waller Construction, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

A Salute To Our Veterans

 

On this Veterans Day, let us pause and salute all who have served. Let us honor the tremendous sacrifices made by the members of the U.S. armed forces and their families to preserve our freedom. They are our relatives, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.

 

This occasion also gives us an opportunity to honor the founding fathers of Waller Construction, our employees that have served in the armed forces, and those who help honor our veterans through volunteer work. The founder of Waller Construction, Robert J. Waller, Jr., served as an artillery officer in WW II and later retired from the National Guard as a Lieutenant Colonel. His sons, Robert J. Waller III and James H. Waller both served in the armed forces as well. Robert J. Waller III served in the Army and National Guard. James H. Waller served in the Marines and unfortunately paid the ultimate sacrifice, losing his life during the Vietnam war.

We would also like to thank our current employees for their service. One of our Commercial Project Managers, Sam Moore, served in the Army from 1969 to 1973 as a Field Artillery Officer and an Airborne Ranger serving in Gelnhausen, Germany for 3 years. He also served in the National Guard for two years as Captain Battery Commander of Service battery in Lake Wales. Our Business Developer, Brandi Peterson, served in the Army National Guard as a transportation specialist from 1994 to 2002. Her husband, Nathan served in the Infantry Division from 1993 to 2001.

At Waller, we also understand that you can be a hero for the Veteran Community without serving in uniform. Alyssa Giampoala, one of our Project Coordinators, is relentless when it comes to working with Habitat for Humanity on their new Lakeland area project that aims to provide housing to Veterans in need. When discussing the project, Alyssa said, “When I first heard about this project it almost brought me to tears. This is really important to me and how I want to give back to this community.” The Habitat for Humanity project is aiming to build at least 30 tiny homes for Veterans that are near homelessness or are living in substandard living conditions. If you would like to donate time, materials, or monetary donations to this project, please contact Habitat for Humanity or call Waller Construction at 863-688-8870 and ask for Alyssa.

 

We want to thank all Veterans and their families for their service to our country. May you all have a blessed weekend!

We hope you’ll be a regular visitor on our site and hope to see you in the Waller Construction & Design showroom soon!

When selecting a contractor to handle your project, you want to make sure the company you hire has the experience, staff, and knowledge to capture your vision for your home or business and will turn it into a reality. At Waller Construction, our goal is to handle each and every project with the same care, respect, and attention to detail that we would provide to our very own families.

Here’s what you can look forward to in Waller Construction’s Blog:

  • We’ll introduce you to the people who make Waller Construction different.
  • We’ll share information about some of our favorite homes and businesses we’ve designed, remodeled, and built.   We’ll show you before and after pictures, client testimonials, and even advice from the project managers that help turn your design ideas into reality.
  •  We’ll answer your questions about how to transform your dreams into reality with products from The Waller Design Center.
  • We firmly believe that great companies do more than provide excellent products and services, they’re also engaged members of the communities they live in. We’ll show you how the employees at Waller Construction get involved with the community through local civic, volunteer, and community events and organizations.
