FOR INDUSTRY, BY INDUSTRY!
Western Exteriors magazine encourages you to submit construction-related articles to be featured in this blog. For contributors eager to share their expertise on a regular basis, we now offer a special advertising package that includes regular Blog contributions, web advertising and print advertising in the magazine.
- Articles CAN be product promotional and company promotional, provided they are related to the building industry in Western Canada.
- Articles will be edited for grammar and spelling, and are subject to approval.
- All content that can be hyperlinked, will be. This means we can hyperlink to company websites, LinkedIn profiles, project-related websites, industry reports, new product pages, and we can even embed video when available.
