Tips From Riegler Management Water Run-off Solutions

D

ue to the rotation of drought and heavy rains in this area of the country, you may be experiencing issues with your home or yard over the last few years. If heavy rain leads to pooling and puddling on the grounds, around your home, it’s only a matter of time before the water drainage and erosion cause problems. There are a variety of solutions available to you, depending on the property, the area around the property and your budget. In this article we will discuss a couple of approaches.

ALL-RITE READY MIX

“Where Quality and Service Save You Time and Money” Florence, Kentucky 139 Aristocrat Dr. (859) 371-3314 Aurora, Indiana 10513 Morgans Branch Rd. (812) 926-0920 Wilder, Kentucky 108 Williams Way (859) 572-9951 Harrison, Ohio 7466 New Haven Rd. (513) 738-1933 Port Union, Ohio 5259 Rialto Road (513) 860-5111

Plant Trees & Preserve Current Trees The far-reaching and deep root systems of trees effectively absorb water over a sizeable area. The trees’ canopy also reduces the fall of rainwater allowing the ground to soak up more water than it would otherwise. Rain Gardens These gardens are planted in slight ground depressions that collect water and allow the water to gradually seep into the soil. We use water-hungry plants, permeable soil and mulch in the garden so that considerable amounts of water can be absorbed swiftly, typically in a couple of hours. Rain gardens can be almost any size depending on the situation, and are typically planted at the base of a slope; anywhere where water naturally flows or can be directed. Retention Basins A retention basin is a permanent lake with landscaped plants and trees around it. This pool allows you to manage stormwater runoff; preventing flooding and downstream erosion. Dry Creek Beds Sometimes uneven slopes lead to erosion when excess water flows down, or puddles on the bottom of the slope. You can address the erosion or landscape drainage problem with dry creek beds. When it rains, water flows over an arrangement of lovely stones and boulders and slowly seeps between them, leaving the ground underneath firmly in place. The next time a rain storm wreaks havoc on your home, take a tour around the property immediately afterwards. Keep an eye out for residual water that may be the sign of current or future water drainage problems. With preventative approaches such as these, you can enjoy the rain without worrying about potential property or grounds’ damage. Northern Kentucky BUILDER

WHAT EVERY BUSINESS OWNER SHOULD KNOW KENTUCKY WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE

E

very Kentucky employer with one or more employees is required to maintain workers compensation insurance. (KRS 342.630) There are no special exceptions for family member or part-time employees. Out of state employers performing any work in this state are required to have Kentucky workers compensation insurance. Keep in mind that workers often referred to as “day labor or casual labor” are generally considered employees under the Workers Compensation Act. Exempted by statute are farm laborers, domestic servants working in a private home of an employer who has less than two employees, workers employed by a homeowner for residential maintenance, remodeling and repair lasting no more than 20 consecutive work days, members of an established religious sect with a conscientious objection to receiving benefits of any public or private insurance and employees protected by federal laws, including railroad and maritime workers. Compliance with the Act The Office of Workers Claims seeks compliance of all employers in the state. This is accomplished by regular inspections of employers to verify compliance. Non-compliant employers can be cited resulting in fines of $100 to $1,000 for each offense. The fine can be substantial since each employee and each day of violation shall constitute a separate offense. An

injunction prohibiting the employer from doing business until it comes into compliance can be obtained. Additionally an employer may be held liable to an injured employee (or employee of an uninsured contractor or sub-contractor) for income benefits including lost wages and medical expenses. An employer may not deduct policy premiums from wages or salary of any employee entitled to benefits. Kentucky does not sponsor a state-run insurance program. Therefore, it is the employer’s responsibility to secure the insurance from a private carrier. Contact any Kentucky insurance agent that represents approved insurance companies to purchase a policy. Contacting the Department of Labor This information form provides a brief explanation of the Workers Compensation Act. Additional information is available by contacting the Kentucky Department of Labor, Office of Workers Claims Enforcement Branch at 1-502-564-5550 or 1-800-731-5241. Our Internet Web site is www.labor.ky.gov/workersclaims.

Workers Compensation Experience Rating Formula To Change

T

he National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) has announced changes in the formula that is used to calculate experience modifiers for employers in most states. Specifically, the primary/excess split point will be incrementally increased from the current $5,000 to $10,000 in 2013 and $13,500 in 2014. Thereafter, the split point will be tied to an inflationary index that will start at $15,000. NCCI cites medical inflation as the reason for the changes, and a need to make premiums more reflective of an employer’s loss experience. For example, in the first year of these changes, contractors with no losses greater than $5,000 should see a drop in their experience modification rating (EMR) factor, while those with a relatively large number of losses approaching or exceeding $10,000 will see an increase in EMR. There is no cap on how much an employer’s EMR can increase in a given policy year. 10

Northern Kentucky BUILDER

These changes will impact all industries but perhaps the construction industry more than most due to minimum EMR requirements imposed on contractors by many project owners just to qualify to bid on a project. Furthermore, it could affect eligibility for the contractors credit premium adjustment program (CCPAP), which provides discounts to contractors who pay higher than the state average hourly wage for employees in certain construction classifications. In some states, contractors must have an EMR of 1.0 or lower to be eligible for the CCPAP discount. Unfortunately, because the experience rating period covers prior years’ losses, contractors will not have the opportunity to implement strategies that could reduce the impact of the changes before they become effective. Contractors should also discuss these changes with key clients to make them aware of coming changes in the EMR and make it clear that these changes are the result

of a formula change rather than an increase in losses or a relaxation in safety protocols. These changes will become effective in 2013 for all states that follow the NCCI rating system. A few independent bureau states have made comparable changes. Changes to the primary/excess split point have not been proposed in the monopolistic states (North Dakota, Ohio, Washington, and Wyoming) or in most independent bureau states, including California, Delaware, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

T Autumn 2011

he Enzweiler Apprentice Training Program celebrates several milestones this year that speak to the support of the HBA Membership and the quality of the Staff and Students! To begin with, the Enzweiler Apprentice Training Program was honored by the NAHB with an Assoication Excellance Award for Workforce Development for the Curriculum and Practical aspects of the school. Everyone is very excited to receive such a high honor, especially considering that there are more than 800 HBA’s competing for awards nationwide. It is a testament to the input of our members and the high quality of instruction that such an award was bestowed upon us. Another remarkable feat this year has been the commitment of our HBA members to draw from the school to fill their employment needs. The Enzweiler Program can now boast that almost 95% of our students are gainfully employed in their trade and are earning credits towards their Journeyman Status!

AROUND THE ASSOCIATION Furlong Builds 16,000 sq. ft. Expansion for FN Sheppard urlong Building Enterprises, LLC, a commercial and industrial construction firm, has completed a major expansion project for FN Sheppard & Company at the company’s Erlanger, KY headquarters. The 16,000 sq. ft. expansion will house manufacturing and warehouse operations for the belting products manufacturer. The company was founded by Fred Sheppard and after his sudden death in July 1971, James E. Reilly purchased the company. Supporting James in the early years of taking over the company was his friend and colleague, Paul Hehman Sr. (father of Furlong CEO Jude Hehman) and several other individuals. For the past eight months, James Reilly’s sons Jim Jr. and Brian and Jude Hehman have been working together to plan and construct the expansion project, continuing the legacy that their fathers began four decades ago.

F

A building dedication ceremony followed by a company cookout was held on June 21, 2012 at 11 a.m. at FN Sheppard & Company at 1261 Jamike Drive, Erlanger, KY. “Our fathers worked together nearly 40 years ago and I now have the privilege to work with the next generation of Reillys,” said Furlong Building Enterprises CEO Jude Hehman. Our working relationship has a special meaning knowing that we are building upon a valued relationship that began so many years ago by our fathers.” FN Sheppard & Company has grown considerably since the early 70’s and now has third generation Reilly family members involved in the business and is operating in six states. “The expansion of our headquarters will allow us better functionality and efficiency,” said Vice President of Operations, Brian Reilly. James Reilly continues to serve as leader-inchief and at 85, has no plans to retire. “The credit for our success goes to our employees, many of whom have worked here since the 1970’s and 80’s,” said

James Reilly. “We have good open communication; everyone knows their roles and goals and it works for us,” adds James Reilly. Reflecting on the steady success of the company Reilly says: “We stay focused on the needs of customers, stay on top of changes in the industry and do not take many risks.” For more about FN Sheppard & Company, visit www.fnsheppard.com. Furlong specializes in design-build construction, additions and renovations for commercial, industrial, office, medical and retail projects. In March, Furlong owners Jude Hehman and Peter Nicolaou celebrated their second anniversary as a company. The company has recorded over $4.5 million in sales during 2011. Cincy Magazine awarded the Tri-State Success Award to Furlong in April 2012. Services are provided throughout the Tri-State and Midwest Region including Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan. For more information, visit www. FurlongBuilding.com

Landscape lighting… an overwhelming task!

L

andscape lighting can be an overwhelming task to a lot of people in the sense of all the possibilities, how to accent, what fixtures to pick, and so on. Well, Kichler Lighting has introduced a new line called the Design Pro LED Hardscape, specifically for hardscape, step, deck, and bench lighting. This line goes outside the norm of lighting up your “landscape” and specifically targets your “hardscape.” While most people give it thought and do things to accent it, this line has fixtures that are built to really draw attention to the details of your decks, patios, retaining walls, and even benches. A unique design coupled with the use of LED lighting, providing a fixture truly built to last. Some of the benefits Kichler details about these LED light fixtures are: • Uses 75% less energy than halogen • Designed with a pure, warm, natural 2,950k white light • Long-life LED light source - 40,000 hours at industry standard L70 • Fully sealed and potted to resist moisture • Tested to withstand the elements for years of enjoyment • Adaptable to almost any hardscape, deck, step, or bench application • AFinishes compliment popular stone and decking options: Textured Architectural Bronze™, Bronzed Brass, Copper, Gray, Sand and Textured White Aside from the LED lighting, the benefits, and the unique design, you also have maximum flexibility with these fixtures. These fixtures were developed to concentrate on those “hardscape” areas of the home that most overlook or other fixtures don’t do as good of a job or aren’t really

made for the longevity. With these fixtures, you will have low voltage usage, low profile (.66” wide) and low heat output, meaning they can be used in a variety of outdoor applications. This is just the beginning of what they can offer: • Retaining walls of all types – new construction and existing • Brick or stone columns • Under all types of steps, including wood, composite, stone and brick, with and without risers • Under deck and chair/hand and fence rails • Lips or the undersides of a wide variety of outdoor surfaces • Pergolas • Outdoor kitchen and bar areas (under lips and toe kicks) • Raised beds/planters • Boat docks (as permitted by local codes) Now the burning question is, this is all great, but how easy are they to install? Well, with any Kichler landscape lighting fixture, they are always easy to install. They speak to constantly thinking through the installation process whenever they are creating a new fixture, and you will realize it as soon as you install one. Plus, the overall quality and technology going into these fixtures are truly top notch. You will know when you put in these fixtures they are built to last.

The N.K.A.P.C. started energy inspections on July 1 to help remodelers get used to what they are looking for in the inspections. The new Kentucky Building Code will go into effect on January 1, 2013. The Building & Housing Codes Committee will continue to meet with inspectors the remainder of this year to discuss the new changes. If you are experiencing any code enforcement issues or have questions about these new Codes, please contact Brian Miller at the HBA office.

By Darlene Bossert, CKD, Stone Statements, Inc. Tour of Remodeled Homes: The 2012 Tour is scheduled for October 6 & 7. The early bird deadline has passed and the final deadline for entries is August 3. We hope to have several projects in Cincinnati again this year.
