1) Olubunmi – Day 23 #Emilinks #BellaNaija #MyDoorStory

A thing of beauty is a joy forever. This is applicable to houses especially when the quality of the building materials is not compromised for cost. Our house has been standing for almost four years and asides minor repairs (like installing Emilinks fittings), it is still standing strong.
However, it has not always been like that. We have come close to calamity on a few occasions. While living in a rented apartment, the greedy landlord would collect the rent when due but would never perform minor repairs. At the same time, he wouldn’t give us permission to fix the ceiling that had begun to leak whenever it rained or build a loft over the window to prevent rain from trickling in.
One fateful night, it rained cats and dogs. Apart from the roof and windows that were leaking, rain started to seep in from under the door. We immediately got to work, mopping water and moving our property to drier areas. After a while, out of sheer frustration and hopelessness, we huddled up in a corner. It was pointless packing water out because the more we worked, the more the water flowed in.
Then calamity struck. A wooden beam that had been weakened by water fell, bringing splinters of asbestos with it. But for the quick reflexes of my elder brother, he would have been severely injured. He got away with minor scratches on his arm and leg.
By morning, we were weary with exhaustion. Nobody could go to work. We salvaged what was left of our property and put some outside to dry.
While I was outside, I heard a loud noise. The wall where I had just spread my clothes collapsed. It was a close shave.
The landlord came round and offered his apologies but my dad would not have any of it. If looks could kill, the landlord would have been dead and buried. The collapsing of the roof and wall could easily have led to our deaths.
Of course, the landlord did the necessary repairs but my dad started planning to build our house. He wasn’t earning much but he told us that he couldn’t skimp on quality. He paid for Emilinks doors and windows which are unarguably the best in Nigeria. Slowly but surely, we built our house with only good materials. That decision paid off because our house has stood the test of time. It is indeed a shelter from the elements, both rain and sun.
When people ask me for building advice, I tell them one thing. If you want your house to last a year, buy substandard materials. If you want your house to last forever, use Emilinks. Emilinks will save you a lot of lives, property, time, money and tears.

2) Eleanor kcee – Day23:
I don’t know why most Nigerians prefer quality to quantity. Most would rather eat a tasteless large bowl of meal than a tasty small bowl of meal. Same also as regards to building. Some would prefer building a one story house with substandard materials than a bungalow with standard material.
I remember just few months ago, a heavy downpour occurred in my vicinity, people’s hoases fell down, some had their rooftops blown away, some had their fences broken down, the rain damaged a lot of things.
I can’t forget the face of a woman that lost her entire poultry to the rain, another lost some of his clothes because the rain swept them away. Many had a story to tell, it was indeed a black day for some.
I just had to help console them, I wonder why people would risk their lives and stay in a building that you know has issues even when people tell you about them. I know people who have lost their loved ones and their source of livelihood hood due to disasters that occurred as a result of such usage.
Standard organization of nigeria, I must say are really doing a good job in ensuring that the menace raging the building industry is curbed.
What about the drainage systems, it’s nothing to write home about. Some contractors build roads without a drainage system and it’s bad because when the rains come, the road gets flooded leading to breakdown of vehicles and also flooding which is a disaster.
I can say that use of substandard materials in building has led to a lot of loss of lives and properties.
Organizations and individuals need to stand up to this menace. Emilinks NG has risen up to the menace and it’s left for others to follow suit. Say no to loss of lives and properties. Don’t be a miser! don’t be a cheat! Don’t be a greedy fellow. Our lives are important, greed mustn’t be the order of the day. We must learn to value things, if we don’t, the development we desire to see won’t come our way. It starts with you and I.
This isn’t a story but a message to Nigerians.

5) Motun K. – There was dis man who owns a house in my street called baba ajala he’s a self centered person and doesnt like listening to other people opinions he happens to own another building at the next street spending a lot of money on the building buying sub standard products in the house because he is a very rich man but he was advised by another friend who lives in the same street not to use the materials he used but because he is an aggressive rich person and self centered he thought the person was saying all dat so dat he could benefit from him so he didnt even pay attention to what the person told him, the building was very a beautiful one and it was a dream house for everyone who passed by the building and the man was happy people were appreciating his building, unfortunately the happiness was short lived because some months later a heavy downpour occured and caused a lot of havoc and destruction to houses and and property.the kind of rainstorm dat could uproot a tree.so this man’s house was not left out as heavy wind and and rainfall destroyed the house and 3 people sustained serious injuries.the man was suprised why such a thing could happened to his building so he decided to see a friend in regret to ask for an advise he rejected nd he was directed to Emilinks store. Immediately he went to EMILIKNS store and he had to renovate his building with Emilinks products ever since they renovated the building with Emilinks products they have been living without complain or fear of rain or wind destruction as the materials used are of very high quality and and everlasting . thanks to EMILINKS products for saving baba ajala#Emilinks #MyDoorStory Day 23

6) Oghenekume O.  – #Day23 #Emilinks #MyDoorStory An so, my grandmother died. In desperation to bury her in a befitting house, a contractor was employed to build a house within a month. The house was a beauty to behold after completion. Everybody that came for the service of songs praised the contractor for doing a good job. On the day of the interment, there was a very strong wind and heavy rainfall. To our greatest surprise, the wind blew off the roof and the part of the house where my grandmother was to be buried, collapsed. It was a big embarrassment and we had no choice than to bury her in the collapsed nouse. After the burial, we found out that the contractor used substandard materials. Is 10 years and still counting since the house was renovated with quality materials and finishes from Emilinks range of products. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory.

7) Maduabuchi O. – Day23 #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Bellanaija
Whenever I heard of Sub-standard product or Services I remember Engr James my Dad’s friend. He was contracted by a Pastor to build a church, because the Pastor is too busy to monitor the project, Engr James used sub-standard materials to completed the building but on the day of opening ceremony the church collapse killing almost half of the church members. Today Engr James is serving life imprisonment. Quality product will not only give you rest of mind but also to the society at large. It will also save you the cost of continuous maintenance. If you are looking for Quality products, go for #Emilinks there products are not only quality but their prices is also Affordable.

8) @mhiz__ese – @bellanaijaonline May 8th, 2013 is a day not to forget in a hurry. An electronic shop worth millions of Naira which served as a source of income for catering a family of eight vanished into thin air, because of a building constructed with substandard materials.

It all started when we moved our goods worth tens of millions of Naira to a newly constructed shop. At exactly a week after we moved into the new building, my mum and I left for the shop that morning to do business as usual but to our greatest surprise, the storey building where the shop was located had collapsed. I was shocked! “Were we not here yesterday? ” I asked my mother who was even wondering if we where in the right place.

The contractor later confessed that he used substandard materials in constructing the building. This selfish act made my siblings and I to stay away from school for two sections, sometimes going to bed without food, leaving us at the mercy of friends and well wishers for a very long time.

The acid test to be sure you are awarding a project to a good contractor is to ask the contractor a very simple question, “do you know Emilinks?” If the contractor has no idea about Emilinks, Please, put your arms underneath your shoulders and held on for dear life because, that contractor is like a bomb going some where to explode.

9) @_bhetty – #emilinks#mydoorstory day 23
During one summer break from school, I decided to spend two weeks with my aunt at agege… One faithful day, I decide to follow her to shop and I noticed that most of the building around there were not looking strong enough, they were looking old and I wasn’t comfortable staying close to some of the building due to the way they looked… Few months later when I returned to school, I got a call from my aunt saying that her shop had collapsed due to the poor foundation of the house around it and she lost so many goods……. I was so down and I decided to pay her a visit… On getting there I met her husband discussing about building a new shop for her across their house.. Sometime later he called a contractor and began to negotiate with the man. When he dropped the call I told him not to go too far that he should visit Emilinks store for whatever materials he needs in order not to have same experience again… @bellanaijaonline

10) @dicksiano – @bellanaijaonline Living in a corrupt country like the one we are in now is totally hard. Many people don’t care about the type of house they build or the type of material they use so far it’s cheap they don’t care. But most people don’t know the importance of using good materials in tje building. Most Nigerians wants to become landlords and landladies overnight and they build these houses in less than six months with substandard materials. The worst is that they don’t even care about the lives of those in the building, all they are concerned about is the rent they get from it.
Like a church containing more than 2000 lives you can’t just endanger those lives just because you are economising the materials. For example imagine the earthquake that happened in Italy some days ago if it happens in most part of this country 70% of houses that are not even close to the affected area would not just have cracks in the wall but would be completely destroyed. Building nice home is not all about the beauty but also about the security.
its not building a house that matters. what matters is transforming your house into a home and it is possible with Emilinks.

    I am Single mother and an entrepreneur,i work hard daily to cater for me and my children,paying the house rent wasn’t helping matters so I made a decision to build mine. hey!!!!! Here comes the gossip of all times “see this lady she has a child already and now wants to build a house,which man will marry her like that??..I pity her” I turned deaf ears to all that was said and built my house. I used quality materials and employed knowledgeable people for it. It wasn’t easy cause materials were expensive and paying workers was times 2.but I said to myself the house rent I was paying wasn’t worth it, today it’s the toilet, tomorrow rain is dropping inside the house. That encouraged me to do mine better cause I don’t want to pass through such stress. Now I’m married,i live in my husband’s house and rented mine. My tenants are testimonies. Quality and standard buildings keep u safe and reduces stress.thanks

    Building with Substandard materials can be very dangerous. Mr Adekunle got a contract to build a complex with 30stores,he was awarded 30million for the building contract! When he got the call that he was given the contract, he immediately gathered his friends and started declaring drinks…He was squandering money left, right, up, down, and centre. A week later he discovered he had 20 million left, he resolved that he was going to spend just 10 million on the complex and keep 10 million for himself. He starting putting calls across to friends on how he can get cheap and Substandard materials for the complex… He bought all he needed and building started. By the time they were done building, he immediately got roofing, plumbing and furnishings for the complex. By this time it was already raining season. He didn’t even mind the weather he continued… He wud always shout at the construction site, hurry up, I have to deliver next week!
    Building was completed and he reported back to the people who awarded the contract. They fixed a day for inspection… A night before the deal day, it rained cat and dogs! Wen the inspection team arrived, they saw a collapsed building… Dat was not all, the two men stationed at the entrance for guarding the complex at night was found dead… Mr Adekunle fainted and was rushed to the hospital. Substandard materials can cause loss of lives and property! Be wise,get standard materials! Get Emilinks!

    Even the Bible stated in Matthew 7 vs 24-27, the advantages of building with quality…A building built with Substandard can never stand wen the rain descends,wen the floods comes, nor wen wind blows against the house! It goes down like it was never there,most times, destroying lives and property! But a house built with standard material is like a house built on a rock! Even if the rain descends, flood comes, or wind blows, the house remains standing… Quality buildings are never problems to the society. Use quality materials, Get Emilinks!

    “Bungalow no day collapse”, these were one of popular sayings of my ignorant uncle. My dad’s elder brother was a semi learned man and he was into gambling.Luckily for him, he won a jackpot and he decided to build a house and be free from the so called “Lagos landlords”. His idea was ideal but apart from being gambler, he was also a miser.My uncle hated spending money or rather giving out money.
    So when my uncle started building his house, the engineer would advice him to buy quality materials but he would opt for less quality because he didn’t want to spend money and if the engineer should caution him about its effect, he would say ” Bungalow no day collapse” because he was building a bungalow. Eventually, the house was completed and he moved in with his family.
    The unwanted happened, there was a big storm in Lagos and it removed the roof of the building and half of the wall of the building collapsed.This event took my uncle back to square one because he couldn’t rehabilitate the building.He sold the land and had to fall back to a rented apartment because of his ignorance.
    So avoid setbacks like these in life, get good building materials and enjoy the best form of insurance.I recommend #Emilinks in the aspect of furnitures.

    My Story illustrates d cliche ” what is what doing at all is what doing well”. The story is about a bachelor Mr.John who was hustling in d U.K and wanted to come back to Nigeria to settle down.He decided to send money to his aunt to build a 2-storey building duplex for him.
    Unfortunately, his aunt was ignorant of d importance of using good building materials. Mr.John’s aunt was always feeling paranoid whenever d contractor asks for money for d building materials. She would not give d contractor d exact amount thinking d contractor was trying to extort her and her nephew. The contractor had to settle for substandard building materials which was cheaper.
    Few years after Mr.John moved in, the disaster happened.Lightning destroyed d building because there was no earthing rod in a 2-storey building! Fortunately,Mr John was well to do and so he built another house and these time he made sure every material was of good quality including the ever competent #Emilinks furnitures.

    It’s not an easy task building a house in Rivers State especially in the swampy areas,not to talk of how expensive building materials cost. I remember when I started my building at elepranwo axis in port Harcourt city. I was discouraged by my family and friends because it was too swampy and a lot of houses built their has never lasted for more than 2-3years. I assured them that mine was going to be different,and indeed mine was different
    It’s been 7years and still counting,and my house is still in a perfect condition,not even a crack on the wall. All because I used quality and standard materials, I also ensured my workers were professionals.That was the secret to my house as people continue asking.
    To crown it all I used Emilinks furniture for all necessary part which needed furniture and that made my building stand out.
    Using good materials for building makes your building last long, improves the look of your environment,brings good health, saves lives and reduces expenses in future.
    Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

    One cold raining night we were onside our house and heard a loud thud,GBUMMMM,dat was wat were heard while the earth beneath us shook! I tot it was an earthquake… My only consolation was that, I knew we don’t experience earthquakes in Nigeria… We rush out, everyone in the neighbourhood rushed out too, and we discovered that the new duplex that was completed barely 3 months ago has been crumbled to pieces… The duplex collapsed, destroying the two cars parked outside… Thank God no life was lost but I can imagine the properties that was destroyed, television, furnitures, plumbing materials, kitchen appliances, etc! The owner of the house travelled out wit his family dat was their saving grace. No one had the courage to call them and pass the bad news… The advantages of quality materials cannot be over emphasized! Use quality and standard materials, Use Emilinks… They re the best

    Poor-quality building materials make buildings weaker and more likely to collapse during natural disasters.

    When communities understand the importance of high-quality materials and have access to competitively priced, locally made, high-quality bricks, they can build safer houses and schools.

    I remember our former house in Eleme, Port Harcourt. It was a one of the pettiest building along that street and my dad was so pleased at the way the house was set up and beautiful paintings that he wasted no time in paying for the three bedroom apartment.

    Months passed and we enjoyed out new abode until the rainy seasons came. the first day, our kitchen was flooded and my mum thought someone had left the kitchen window and I was blamed cos I entered the kitchen last. No one thought about the roof if it was leaking.

    Another day, my mum almost accused my dad of bed wetting when they woke up to meet the bed all wet. It continued like that till one day there was a sort of wind storm. We were all sleeping when my kid bro cried out from his room. We went there and the room was flooded. Part of the roof had been uprooted and it rained into his room. My dad was furious and almost got the owner of the house arrested till they fixed it. One of our neighbours who was drawn to the situation, told the landlord to spend on quality and make sure he gets the Emilinks brand to fix his house. It was one of the hell of our lives as we constantly had to mop the house whenever it rained until the landlord strategically changed some of the materials to the products from the Emilinks brand.

    When my dad was posted to Lagos from his work place, he made sure to ask for the materials used in building the houses that was recommended to him. If it wasn’t Emilinks, the search for house continued till we got a good apartment that was built with quality materials from Emilinks.

    I am an Intern for the Lagos State government and Land and Building surveying. I was sent to a particular community where many have complained about Burglaries, building collapse and many more.

    When I got to the community, I noticed i rained heavily the night before and I could see doors that were destroyed, roofs uprooted and people were wailing at the government for poor wind control and poor water ways.

    I simply arrived with my tools asking questions and surveying, Many looked at me wondering what the young woman was up to. I could tell they’d had pounced on me had I told them I was a government official.

    At the end of my survey, I found out the quality of doors, windows and many of the building materials were substandard. I took time to lecture those I can on the importance of making sure their building contractor install the quality building materials. I told them to ensure they supervise the buying of the materials themselves and do not blame the government for everything. I pointed out Emilinks as a goto brand for quality materials.

    I also made sure to speak to some of the builders I met advising them on the importance of building with the right material and suggested they all tried building materials made by Emilinks.

    Day24 #Emilinks MydoorStory#
    No matter how terrible your economic situation is, it is not an excuse for building your house with substandard crappy building materials. My one year NYSC service year was like five years in pains. It was a year that can perfectly be described as an homeless situation. I think, I bear the punishment of paying my whole attention to the attractive look of the house I rented rather than looking for house build with quality product from #Emilinks.

    I rented the house focusing all my attention on the look, and nobody would have told me I was going to learn the lesson of my life in it. I always feel so bad anytime its cloudy because rain will not come without pains. Sometimes, when it started raining at night, then that’s the end of the sleep for the day. I dare not go out no matter how important if its cloudy.

    The most frustrating day of my life, was the first day it rained during my stay in the village. I never knew the house was that bad until that day. It was on Tuesday afternoon. Earlier on, I already arranged my credentials and suit because I was to travel to Lagos for a job interview the following day. I went to friend’s house that was to lend me some cash for the journey and it started raining.

    It really rained heavily for hours, and I was never scared because I believed I had locked the window and door before leaving home on that faithful day. It stopped around 7pm and I went home to meet the shock of my life. Never knew the whole materials were crappy.

    On getting home that night, the whole compound was full of flood, there was no proper drainage system and the only way for water to escape was flowing directly to out rooms through the door. I got in to my room, and it was like a fish pond, it was filled to my knee. My mattress was flowing, my books were swimming and my credentials were all dancing on top of the water.
    Initially, it was a corse… but I later got to know that, not using quality/standard materials from #Emilinks by my landlord was the punishment we were all facing. Ever since then, I promised not to ever live in an apartment without quality products from emilinks.

    I watched a falcon flap it’s wings and fly with prestige as I stood on the balcony outside my room in our new home. I wondered how magnificent and beautiful this bird was, remembering how I saw one just like it four years ago in our former home. As the falcon flew, fading into the horizon, I longed for it to come back and keep me company, but it disappeared anyway. I was in our new home, the one my parents and elder siblings put so much effort in to make our dream of a new home actually come to reality
    The house was situated in a newly developed area in Benin metropolis were all the houses looked almost the same, like an estate but were owned by different people. This rural settlement however lacked all forms of vegetation, from the main entrance to the rear gate; everything was block and brick from start to finish. I was lost in the euphoria of having to meet new people; neighbors and visitors because socializing and making friends had always bee some of the things I loved doing. Finally, I felt at home, at peace and relaxed. “There’s no place like home”, I muttered to myself.
    My family was unique, simple and enviable. But the new house seemed a greater deal uniqueness, simplicity and envy than any of us could think of. Excitement, euphoria and ecstasy was the order of that day because it felt like we had overcome purgatory and transcended heaven. The building was a storey building, painted cream and stood with esteem like the tower of Pisa. The building materials looked trustworthy and genuine, impeccably making me feel safe and aboard on heaven’s solid edifice itself. I asked Dad almost everything about the building and he answered all my questions painstakingly, but his emphasis dwelled on the building materials. He ascribed so much credit to a company called Emilinks and how their building materials were the best for any builder to use. We settled in and made all the changes and decor exactly as she desired, from the living room to the kitchen to the bedrooms to the guestrooms and every other place we could re.
    Two years later, an era I refer to as the pluvial range, the weather became fearsome and disturbing. Boisterous winds and incessant downpours were the talk of the metropolitan people. Homes were foundering and structures were starting to become scenes which we saw on the new, everything was collapsing and it instilled a great deal of fear in anyone and everyone. On September 11th, 2003, eight houses in my neighborhood fell to the ground, claiming lives and leaving injured. My mother wanted us to relocate somewhere but Dad told us we should stay without worry of anything; where he got his confidence from I do not know. He had so much trust for Emilinks company and their products, believing it would still stand even when the whole world drowned. We listened to Dad, at least because we had little or no choice.
    Our home, our house, our edifice, our hope. The building outlasted the “pluvial range” and it’s aftermath. It was the only standing building in the entirety of my neighborhood, all other had crumbled to the earth. The house became the talk of the news, the town and the year. And we all owe our home and our lives to Emilinks company. Emilinks company produces the best building materials.

    Thanks to bellanaija and Emilinks for being a true entrepreneur and blessings hundreds of ordinary Nigerians. I love the twist this has taken, a very crucial topic in our society. Barely few days ago, there was a collapse of buildings in Abuja and people were killed and others injured. And when I was listening to the radio, someone said the punishment for such contractors is the Federal Government confiscating the land and used for garden purposes. This is a huge loss to the owner and the contractor. That’s just by the way. I recently got a contract to build and develop an estate, I have a good report from previous customers and clients and this has garnered me a lot of high profile people who give me the leeway to do as I see fit in constructing buildings. So on this particular one, a very huge one, I got on building. I went about doing my normal thing, normal suppliers and all that. But then, a young guy, one of my laborers kept complaining about the choice of doors we were using. It got to an argument between him and another co-laborer. He insisted that he has seen big beautiful houses and great outlook but with inferior doors, he said that there is this particular door maker, Emilinks. I waived him away but he kept on bringing it up So I decided to use his advice on just part of the estate. There was a heavy rainfall the next day and thus a flood, unfortunately it swept away our buildings. I was disturbed, in my 9 years of construction business i have not seen anything as such. But one thing was striking, the houses that had Emilinks products did not really had a blow, just the roof was blown off. I became humbled, a mere laborer had helped professionals. I called him in, asked him how did he know about Emilinks, he laughed, and described to me in his aboki manner, oga, na por (for) vellanaija (bellanaija) wey i hear am fa, i no know vook (book) but i sabi Emilinks for vellanaija, I decided to do my research and found out it was true. Wow, all these years and i don’t know about Emilinks. I had to start again, though costly, but I got me all doors from Emilinks, and every other materials used was referenced by Emilinks. And it was cheap and easy to access. I got a bonus from my clients and bigger doors opened to me. Of course i promoted my aboki labourer, now a friend. Thanks Emilinks for saving my career, the Government would have confiscated this one as well, leaving me in the heat with my client. I was humbled, for i had thought I knew it all. But Emilinks knows it better. I now convinced prospective clients when bidding for contracts by saying that I am with Emilinks, So get Emilinks, get that job, get referenced, get surer and confident, One thing is certain, good building materials will give you a lasting legacy, just like Julius Berger of Nigeria, and very soon, with the sure help of Emilinks, me too. Thanks again, especially to vellanaija, sorry, Bellanaija.

    During my university days, I thought it better to stay off campus than in the hostel. So I moved in with my friend hoping to rent a vacant apartment downstairs but I was unsure because the building looked weak,although it had all the required social and basic amenities but I shrugged all my suspicions off since my friend had been living there for two years now with no issues, so why would a problem start now when am moving in.
    One day,my friend and I went for lectures, came back and saw the building’s first floor had collapsed but my friend lived in the apartment in the middle, so the two of us salvaged the situation by grabbing what we could before the building totally collapsed.Now I have moved to a new apartment that’s much stronger and better.
    Therefore, we should know that building houses without quality and standard materials can cause loss of lives and properties so let’s get quality building materials from #Emilinks now!!

    A house built with good building materials is a protection not just for you but for those living around you. You see some building contractors collect huge sum of money to carry out a project and after some months, you see such projects crumbling. There are a whole lot of them. An incident happened 2yrs ago in Lagos. This residence is a three storey building, right from when it was built it showed it’s fault but trust people, they still rented it,paying money for their deaths. This building is not so far frm whr I reside, it took only three years for this building to collapse but the most painful part was that there were occupants in the building including a woman who just had a newborn baby. It was a tragic one. Who do we blame?the contractor or those who ignored the warnings of living in a safe building?The use of good building materials is of utmost importance. Yes, these materials may be expensive but they are worth it because “Safety comes first”. Emilinks is known to produce quality furnitures, their doors are known for providing protection. A house built with quality materials would always stand the test of time.

    I woke up this morning to noises in the next compound and just like a typical Nigerian woman, I went there to get the gist. I found out there was robbery in the house and the thieves had made their way through the roof picking up laptops and phones. One of the ladies even lamented how she slept with her phone glued to her hands while Snap chatting and yet hers was still taken from her unawares.

    I reminded everyone there that this was one of ills of using poor building material when building a house. I encouraged them to build their houses with quality and impenetrable materials.
    I made sure to point out that if I were to advise on a quality brand, I’ll say chose Emilinks.

    It is justified when one uses quality materials to build any day any time. This didn’t happen to me but a friend but I know what she went through. Few years back, She rented an apartment on mainland and it looked beautiful, little did she know the beauty was just from the paint but it was a poorly built house. 6months afterwards, thankfully she was at work and someone called her to say her house just collapsed, she corrected the person that she had no house with the mind of it couldn’t be happening to her. It then dawned on her, the house she rented had collapsed, all she had was in there, her certificates inclusive. I had to go to her office as she was so devastated. It clearly wasn’t her fault but the culprit too had his share cos he was first jailed and released later on bail. Luckily, no one lives were lost but people were left in ruins as their properties were gone. Fortunately for her, the house she rented afterwards were built with quality materials as the Owner is a distributor of @Emilinks. The house is beautiful in and out and she has been living there for two years and recommends Emilinks products to everyone as a standard in renting a house.

    There’s a saying that goes, anything worth doing is worth doing well… My friend and I both got loans from a microfinance bank for building. We agreed to build 4 bungalows each with the money gotten,then pay pack over the period of three years. My friend came to my office one day so happy, she told me dat she met a contractor who told her he could used the money and build 7 bungalows instead of the 4 bungalows we agreed… She said he told her there is a place in contonu where building materials are gotten at a very low price. I tried as a friend to talk her out of it but to no avail! She continued wit her 7 bungalows plan while I continued with my 4 bungalows… It’s been 5years now, I have been able to pay back the loan and I’m still enjoying my property. Sadly my friend has a different story entirely, she hasn’t been able to pay back her loan and she barely has tenants because abt 2years ago, the septic tank of one of the bungalows broke and a 1yr old baby fell in and died! Since then, tenants are always running away frm the compound! I can give this testimony because I used quality and standard materials from Emilinks. It is better to go for the best and have peace than use Substandard materials and be restless. Use Emilinks. Emilinks is tested and trusted!

    Using quality building materials is essential and important for long term investment and safety.
    For building materials like windows, it is especially important to choose a high quality product. Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing a high quality energy efficient window, you can block out some of the harmful rays and at the same time, the quality of the windows will help reduce heat loss during cold and keep in cooler air during heat.
    The wood used in the framing of a house is another important consideration. Using properly treated wood products such as BluWood can prevent fungus, mold and wood ingesting pest infestations. Not only are you using a superior building material, but you are also protecting your health and safety.
    Excellent roof construction in house can provide significant long term savings when using quality materials. A roof can account for up to 50% of a home’s total surface area, so this is one place to spend a little more money making sure it is done right. The use of high quality roofing materials is inoperative to ensure it is durable, and has water tight protection. If quality materials are not used, this can cause significant damage on your investment in a custom built house.

    My dad is a building contractor and as the first son of the family, whenever he has a building project, I go with him to the site.My dad is known for been a man of principles and this he took into his job.He goes for the best when constructing a building. From the woods to the blocks to the mixture of the sand and cement(not using more SAND than the CEMENT to keep money in his pocket).There are a whole lot of gifts from his clients in the house showing appreciation for a work well done.The use of good building materials for the construction of a house cannot be overemphasized. The house remains for years,from generation to generation. Stories of collapsed buildings do not come from buildings that were built with quality materials but from those built with cheap materials.A house built with good materials feels like a safe haven and you are certain of protection when you have doors like EMILINKS in the house too even though we know God is the ultimate giver of protection. You want that house to be seen by your CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, GREAT GRANDCHILDREN then use quality building materials and some of these can be gotten from Emilinks.Thank you Emilinks.

    @EmilinksNG @Bellanaija And so it happened that we are relocating. We had to look for a house to stay in, so I and my husband saw a newly built house. Each of the bedrooms in the house has its own toilet and bathroom. We paid for the rent and moved in. It was when we moved in that we understand the problem we got ourselves into. I was very happy that finally we are settling down after much search not knowing that our problem has just begun. The first thing I noticed about the house is that the wall connecting the bathroom and the rooms suddenly started getting wet and moisture such that the paintings began to wear off. My four year old kid would always go there and use his hand to be peeling the crumbling and the flaking paint out. It was so disgusting. Even cockroaches and some crawling reptiles like centipede started taking refuge in our home. We invested heavily on insecticides so as to curb the problem but it didn’t stop it. Whenever it rains, we are sure to have a wet floor, only God knows were all that water was coming in from. On a closer observation, we found out that the floor in the house has sunk causing it to separate from the wall. Even after some days, the floors will remain damp. I didn’t believe that a brand new house will be having problems like this.
    It was not until a big zigzag cracks happened at the master bedroom part of the wall that my husband said no way and those we are leaving that apartment immediately. We had just stayed for six months and our rent was meant to be for two years because the Landlord of the house refused one year rent. We approached the landlord and explained to him what the house is going through and also pleaded for him to pay us back the remaining money. He got infuriated, saying that there is no refund of money after payment. After much pleading and he remained adamant, we reported to the appropriate authorities. When they came to supervise the house, they found out that most of the building materials used in building the house was substandard. They also discovered that the topography of the soil on which the building was erected on was bad. They told us that we need to move out of the property immediately because the house will soon collapse and so we moved. The owner of the house was charged to court during which the house was demolished the government. The landlord learnt his reason and so did we, because two years later when we were planning to build our own house, we made sure to go for quality, strong and standard materials. I bet everyone knows where to get that from. Its EMILINKS

    When growing up, there was this beautiful building that was in my neighborhood.It has been there for a very long time without collapsing or getting old. I had always wondered how the building managed to remain that way. Out of curiosity I approached the owner. He laughed so hard and answered me with just a few words”i always go for the best”.He told me that his secret was that he made sure he got the best materials to build his house. Using good materials in building houses is just the best way to build your house. With Emilinks you house is on the go!!!!

    That night everyone went to bed sad. My dad had earlier received a call that his building collapsed suddenly.The next morning we all went to the building site and saw it in ruins. An investigation was carried out and it turned out that the building collapsed as a result of poor building materials. My dad felt heart broken and betrayed because he had already given the contractor the amount of money needed to buy good equipment and the contract bought cheap poor ones instead. The contractor was arrested for fraud. But my dad also thanked God anyway because no life was lost. When building, always make sure to get the best materials because bad buildings may collapse and kill people. #MyDoorStory #Emilinks‎

    @emilinks #day 24 #my door story
    Ever wondered why some buildings collapse after few years or even months after building and why others stand tall and strong many years after? The importance of using good materials for your house/shop/church/hotel,etc. When building is a very important fact that most people overlook, some people just want to rush and build without really going into any research for the right building materials, Using sub standard materials for building can lead to collapse of the building which can lead to loss of properties and even lives, In some cases, there is dilapidation of such building without full collapse eg The roofs can begin to leak, The floors can start breaking in,the walls can cave in. All these can cause great damage to properties and lives..it can even leave people homeless and stranded it is therefore adviceable to go for quality instead of quantity when building, A lot of people especially Nigerians go for cheap materials with the mentality that one is as good as another especially some contractors trying to get quick money, To avoid this House owners should do careful research about any company before handing out. Building contracts to them and quality products such as emilinks should also be used.

    Thank you Emilinks as our goal is always to create a beautiful but strong, stable, and safe place for us to reside. Building a home is a major investment so while you want to have a builder on whom you can depend, you too should do some research to know the process better as leboo did before we completed our building. Together, you can work to produce the best possible home for your needs. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory Day 24

    Anything worth doing, is worth doing well! My name is Marcus, a civil engineer and a staff of the Lagos state Emergency Rescue Unit. In my five years in this job, I have seen many things that make me to question the sanity of most people, especially the so called rich ones.
    I am in the building unit, and so we focus on rescuing those in collapsed building, buildings inspection and sealing off buildings that have the propensity to collapse. I remember vividly my first assignment in Ijora when I freshly started, The building was so beautiful, and still it collapsed killing only one of the seven occupants. We made suggestions that maybe the collapse was due to rain, or some other things, but on receiving the result from the lab, we found out that it was due to the low level of cement in the blocks, and that the beams placed in strategic points of the building was too weak to support it. Because of that mistake, they lost their dad and it was a very tragic that day.
    Other houses where we have gone on rescue missions all have similar stories, inferior building materials!, which led to loss of the very lives this buildings were first meant to protect. The funny thing is that the rich are not left out. Many a times have we been dispatched to Lekki or Ajah where big Socialites reside to rescue victims of collapsed buildings, and even once at an ex-commissioners’ house .
    It pains me most times, to seal off houses that have failed to pass inspection and chase the occupants off to the street, because Once I look at their faces, I see the tears, the fears and Indecision, but I have ceased to look at that anymore, because if they fail to protect themselves by building houses that are solid and strong, it is our duty to protect them. Many houses, schools, bars and hotels have been sealed off to this end.
    Your houses and buildings are to protect your lives and properties and to give you comfort, don’t let it be the death of you! Get quality building materials to protect your lives and property, Get Emilinks, Cos Emilinks is quality.

    I wouldn’t have it any other way,I just didn’t want anything else except the’one’. My carpenter keeps bringing me samples. ‘Ma,this one has extras like doorbell,strong handles,great locks and even automatic bolts’. I smiled but didn’t bulge. I wanted more,more ,more. I knew there was only one brand that assures me of my safety and security and even has plenty extras so I insisted.
    Off he went after I had threatened him with an ultimatum. Without so much as a word ,I knew what I wanted when I saw it .That one,I said that’s it…with his jaw dropped to the floor he said”Ma, that one na big man door o sake of say e strong ka ka ra ka”. I said YES! Go get me a bargain.

    I knew I made the right choice,it’s been years since and my Emilinks doors still stands ka ka ra ka, no shaking.

    During conflict times, a house built with quality materials can be a veritable medium for saving souls.

    Not too long ago, Suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked Nimbo in Uzo- Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State- my neighboring town. Many people were maimed and killed. Later that morning, over 70 dead bodies were found within the community, most of which had their parts dismembered —I’ll spare the gory details.

    Tears flowed freely from all that beheld the regrettable sight, yet no amount of wailing made the dead to rise. Out of anger and pains, the youths in Nimbo took up clubs and machetes and went hunting for any Fulanis.

    My village, Ovoko, is not too far from Nimbo so by few hours past noon, the reprisals have seeped into it. I was entering my father’s compound when I heard voices like sea tides surge towards me. I looked back and saw 6 Fulani people running furiously and behind them were irate youths hot on their heels, hurling stones as they pursued. Reaching where I stood, the eldest amongst them—breathing laboriously—said to me in my dialect and with an unwavering accent. “Please don’t let us die, please I beg you my son!” Behind them I saw the mob gather pace. Just then a well hurled piece of stone crashed onto the head of one of them; it nudged him dizzily into waiting arms. The sight of warm trickling flow of blood from his bruised skull erased every reservation I had against them. I quickly opened our HUGE and STRONG gate and when they had run in, I padlocked the Iron Gate and threw the key over the TALL FENCE while I stood back braving the approaching mob.

    Seeing what I had done, their voices heightened. I immediately felt like I was going to urinate on my pants. Knowing that they CANNOT jump the fence nor break the gate. They commanded me to give up those I had given refuge or they’d deal with me. I swallowed hard but still stood my ground staring into their eyes filled with pain and vengeance. I persuaded them to listen to me so I can talk to them briefly. They agreed to my request, only on the condition that the last decision was theirs to make.

    I spoke, “Our people have a saying that—two persons cannot go mad at the same time, there ought to be one sane enough to help the other regain his lost senses—so my people we can’t allow ourselves go mad with violence also. “Retaliating barbarically on these Fulani people we do not know if they have any hand in the attack is utterly senseless and would worsen the whole matter. My people let us not allow our emotions rule our actions but let us listen to our conscience and think deeply before casting stones.” I spoke to them at length until I started seeing contorted faces straighten, clubs and stones dropped on the floor. At last, they agreed to spare the Fulani people. It was absolutely miraculous.

    Now, assuming our house was not built with QUALITY MATERIALS, they would have just pushed me one side and accomplish their catastrophic mission. This event taught the great importance of building a house with quality materials

They don’t mind using substandard materials, so far they would complete their house on time. Building collapse has become very rampant these days and people need to understand the importance of using good quality and standard materials.There is nothing like having shelter,but not just an ordinary shelter built with substandard materials, but shelter built with good and quality materials such as #emilinks, a global manufacturer of world class furnitures and finishings that makes doors, wardrobes, beds, kitchen, roofs, shelves and many more.
    Its high time regulatory bodies such as Standard Organisation of Nigeria(SON), National Association of Civil engineers, National Association of quantity surveyors etc. take a big stand on this and eradicate substandard products completely. Emilinks has taken that stand already and they are leading us to greater good. They have bettered the lives of people by securing their lives and property and protecting us against theft, collapse, diseases, frustration, money wastage and many more. #Emilinks is world class.
    I remember some few years back when heavy rain fell.it was disastrous, upseting and frustrating.Our rented house was in shambles. Our so called landlord, with his stingy attitude built the house, a 3- bedroom flat with substandard materials. My dad compained over and over , all to no avail. It was until that heavy rain fell, that he knew what substandard building materials can do to lives and property. After the heavy rain, our wall collapsed, my mum was lucky,it did not kill her but she sustained some injuries, the house was flooded due to leaking roof. My dad’s documents were soaked. All he had worked for, we managed to savage the little we could.It was really bad, we had to move in with my aunt for a while.It was at that time my dad completed his house and he made no mistake when he was buying his building materials, he made sure all his building materials were from #emilinks, the bed, shelves,roofs,doors,kitchen.It was time to live a new life.We would never forget what substandard building materials did to us.

    Using quality building materials is essential and important for long term investment and safety.
    For building materials like windows, it is especially important to choose a high quality product. Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing a high quality energy efficient window, you can block out some of the harmful rays and at the same time, the quality of the windows will help reduce heat loss during cold and keep in cooler air during heat.
    The wood used in the framing of a house is another important consideration. Using properly treated wood products such as BluWood can prevent fungus, mold and wood ingesting pest infestations. Not only are you using a superior building material, but you are also protecting your health and safety.
    Excellent roof construction in house can provide significant long term savings when using quality materials. A roof can account for up to 50% of a home’s total surface area, so this is one place to spend a little more money making sure it is done right. The use of high quality roofing materials is inoperative to ensure it is durable, and has water tight protection. If quality materials are not used, this can cause significant damage on your investment in a custom built house.

    #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day24—-I was watching the morning news just as usual,and I got an info on how the storey building of a shopping mall collapsed.God made it possible that it occured very early in the morning by 7:24am before their working activities resumed,which is normally 8:30am. Though lives wasn’t lost but alot of property and goods from workers there worth over millions and thousands from different people were all lost.This scenerio left tragic moment for them and as usual some called on the government for assistants and workers there got interviewed by TV presenters on their opinions on the collapsed building, and some said ‘ it’s lack of good building materials,some said the foundation layout wasn’t done qualitatively,some said,’it’s lack of concrete pillars etc…and this popped in my head that I have to share this story about what lack of good building materials have caused.but I *sigh* and told my parents watching TV with me that,”how which the buiding materials was worth it,this kind of story won’t arise”. and I said to them that if we are going to do any renovation in our house,#Emilinks should be the first thing that should come to their mind.and I will hold their hands,and walk them straight there at once!…thanks for making me share this story with everyone reading #Emilinks #MyDoorStory @bellanaijaonline #Day24

    In the society today cases of collapse of buildings is very rampant, it is a norm for roads to go bad just few months after their construction, This is not as a result of old women in the village who don’t want our progress neither is it as a result of some curse but it is caused by use of sub standard materials for construction,Many contractors want to make quick money so they go for inferior materials not fully knowing the implications or effects of there actions, and few years later the buildings collapse taking innocent lives and loss of properties and the roads become worse than before causing accidents. The government should have a department for checking out the quality of goods before they are released in the market to avoid these losses suffered, and projects like house,road,school,church constructions should be handed over to only trusted companies,lastly quality products like emilinks should be given better publicity to create public awareness for their use.

    I wish to start by saying that a building built with a superior material is likely to last longer compared to ones built with an inferior materials and doors. It is good to know that a building is made to keep safe either it serves as a ware house or where human beings live. I have a story to tell of a building that collapsed just few months after it’s been built up. There was a guys that made money and to add to that, he was extremely rich but stingy even to things related to himself, but out of his stinginess he decided to use cheap and inferior materials in bringing up his building, even a bag of cement he will like to manage it to the least to the extent that the blocks he used for the building has it’s colour to that of an ordinary sand and all these were out of his stinginess and in months time the building collapsed and killed most people around it. That have become the disadvantage of building a house without a superior materials. And if and only if you want to build a house, I will advise you on materials and doors that are the best for that, and there is no other doors and furniture I am talking about other than that of EMILINKS(The number #1 of all) Because any building built, furnished and brought up without the EMILINKS furniture is like a beautiful woman in a sack clothing. #EMILINKS #MyDoorStory Day 24.

    #Day 24 #Emilinks #My Door Story
    I remember very well about 5 years ago when it was time to fix doors in our new house, I heard my mom and dad arguing in the sitting room, I rushed out to find out what the issue was, guess what, my dad wanted to buy emilinks doors that cost over a hundred thousand naira each , over a hundred thousand.
    I was enraged, I quickly sided my mother, dad how can you waste such amount of money on ordinary door, for what now, is it the way to heaven?
    He said, its bullet proof
    Bullet proof…what are we hiding? Abi are we politicians? I joined forces with my mother and we stood our ground, we are not going to buy a door with over a hundred thousand naira, no way dad.
    My dad laughed and laughed and asked is it your money that I’m using to buy the door? Come and stop me, if you can. My mom and I kept shouting but deep down in our hearts we knew very well there was nothing we could do to stop him. His mind was made up.
    Fast forward a week later, our emilinks doors was delivered and fixed immediately. The doors were fine, strong and thick but I still didn’t think it was worth it until 5 years later.
    March 2016, we travelled to the villa for my sister’s igbankwu only to return and see that our gate lock had been burgled, we quickly rushed to other neighbours to tell them and they told us that the unimaginable happened.
    Armed robbers raided the street and they broke into every house on our street, carted away valuables. OMG
    We rushed back to our house to go look for what is missing so we could rush to the nearest police station and quickly report the issue. On getting home, our emilinks bullet proof door was intact. It was obvious the robbers couldn’t get past the door. They tore the window nets but the burglary won’t grant them access either. Quickly we opened the door and everything in the house was intact, just as we left it.
    Then my father started bragging, when I wanted to buy this door, bad belles were trying to change my mind, telling me it’s a waste of money, but I stood my ground he said, no amount of money is too much to preserve one’s life he said. In my mind, did he just call me a bad belle? My eyes jammed with my mother’s, we could only thank God that my dad took that bold step five years ago to buy our emilinks door.

    Day 24 #Emilinks #MyDoorSrory.The quality of a building material ensures the safety and reliablity of such building. The Bible gives a step by step detailed measures Solomon took in building an acceptable building, sad to note that such steps and building materials are not been used in building houses in the present days.Therefore, it takes a conscious effort to use standard building materials and there are some benefits included such as the fact that it ensures sustainability of the building and also prevents incidents such as cracked walls, leaking roofs, broken doors and several other misfortune.A house built with quality materials has the ability to withstand any season and the quality of the designs of furnitures used  makes it such a beauty which in turn gives a person a certain level of confidence and peace of mind. #Emilinks funishing products is highly recommended as a standard and totally dependable building material.

    #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day24

    Most people have huge preference to quantity instead of quality. I remembered vividly the nature of our former rented family house and can categorically state that “houses built with sub standard materials and less quality household fittings & fixtures, makes one’s home & entire household miserable”. The doors were really so bad and of low quality thus the edges were so rough & do tear our clothes. Do you know my Mum after preparing to get to the villa for the yearly August meeting , stepped out of her room, got caught by the rough edge of the bad door and her costly original ABADA badly torn; it really pained her.
    .
    Moreover, my kid sibling nearly fell off from the balcony; the rails, the main entrance doors, kitchen sink and bath tubs all of a sudden became rusty and started disintegrating in parts. My parents barred and cautioned on playing at the balcony for fear and risk of leaning against the railings, it breaks and one fatally falls off. The fitted wardrobes were even homes to huge cockroaches, ants etc. Since virtually most fittings were of less quality, we encountered massive rodents’ visits (rats). We kept doing structure repairs every now and then. At a point the walls started getting water-drained with cracks and this poses risk as per structural problem as regards the quality of the roofing and materials. Though our rent was for couple of years but just after ten months, my dad smartly notified the house owner that he was to soon embark on a job related inter-city transfer thus we are likely to vacate shortly; he got back a year rent refund.

    I accompanied my dad to examine the new house and was just taking my time in examining the entire house and closets, fittings and fixture ( the doors, metal railings, tubs, wardrobe, already fitted kitchen wares), when the landlord stepped up to us and said “not to worry my people, those doors, wardrobes and virtually the entire fittings, fixtures and wares” were from #EMILINKS. He winked and stated I am a correct landlord. They were all looking superb and of great quality. We felt so satisfied, moved in and had a very rewarding home experience and never encountered usual problems compared to the former. Later, we learnt the former house we lived in eventually partially collapsed and was eventually marked for demolition by government authorities and regulators on inspection.

    Till today including, we including co-tenants do call the new house owner “oga correct landlord” and that was just proudly because of his patronage of #EMILINKS brand and using quality materials in its entirely. This is our sixth year in the safe and enjoyable new house; my father’s personal house which is almost nearing completion is equally fully equipped with the #EMILINKS brand. He used to joke and tell us “who no like better thing joor…biko, I no want wahala” (ie as per the very former house worrisome experiences) and I equally have in mind that in future once I’m fully established – #Emilinks all the way. #Emilinks is great quality in household equipments thus everyone should follow suit.

    Firstly what is a House?
    A house is a building for human habitation, especially one that is lived in by a family or small group of people.

    When Building a house ,
    The most Important thing is to ensure that your contractor or builder builds with Quality materials and not substandard.

    Substandard building materials make buildings weaker and more likely to collapse during natural disaster which bring loss of lives and properties.

    It is quite unfortunate that a building that has just been built is been repaired because of the influx of substandard material.

    A building is suppose to be a long term investment, but individuals/firms still use these substandard materials with or without their knowledge and they end up spending more money in the maintenance.

    Houses that are built with Quality materials can never be compared with those built with substandard materials.
    Houses built with quality Materials lasts longer and Saves you cost of maintenance and also guaranties the safeness of you and your family.

    Speaking of Quality house materials , here is one company I recommend for you and your family and friends for quality products called
    #Emilinks_Limited- They are  a global manufacturers of world-class finishing and furnishing products such as doors, beds, kitchens, dining sets, wardrobes and shelves for homes, offices, hotels etc.?? They use variety of innovative techniques blended with exclusive designs to build premium quality products.?
    Thanks to the CEO/MD of Emilinks limited Mr.Solomon..E…Nwadiogbu for helping eliminate fake and substandard products in Nigeria.
    We are really grateful?? We now live safe and happy. ☺
    Be wise. Be like the man who built his house on the Rock.

    hmm 24 is a remarkable day in my life because i was born on 24th.

    I dont have much to say, only because things at times went in a wrong way.

    There are 2 mens in my street they have land in a busy business environment, they planned to build lock up shops, i was there when one was asking the other that who help you mold this blocks is like they are not strong, how many blocks did he get from a bag of cement, he replied 45, then he said its to bad at least 32 blocks from a bag of cement is ok, this other man later built those lock up shops he called plaza with substandard blocks. 6 months later users begin to wonder why is it that whenever it rained the entire wall will be soaked with water thereby spoiling there goods in caton. Immediately i remember the blocks type used in the building, just 2 months ago wall of about 6 out of 12 lock up shops there has serious cracks on the wall, This man has been doing all sort of repair in a house that was built less than a year.

    The worst happenend when one of the tenant tried to renovate his own shop to his own taste, because he wants to use the place as a studio, then he got all furniture needed eg door, wadrobes, can you immagine what really happened that day, hmm , as the brick layer hits the sledge hammer to remove the existing door, the whole front wall collapse.

    House built with substandard material are hopeless because there will be repairs day in day out, and artificial earth quake may occure anytime.

    Ulike the other man who built his own plaza with standard metarial, he has remained intack without any sudden repear. He has not be called for even once to repair a dem in the plaza

One faithful night, there was a heavy drop, it really rained heavily;this rain came with a strong wind. That very night where i was sleeping in my own quarter which is provided by the company, the wind blow off my roof. I was having a very good sleep that night with a sweet dream, all off a suddenly it was as if someone poured me water, because my sleep was so sweet i tried to neglect the water but surprisingly the water was pouring on me constantly before i could wake from my sleep i was drenched with rain to my Greatest surprise i looked up i was seeing lightning up the sky. Hmmmm i quickly rushed to the other quarter where the other Workers where staying to see if i could stay with them but when I got there but i could see was people standing helpless under the rain cos all there roofs has all gone off. After the terrible night we went to the company to lay our complains to our great surprise our company is also suffering the same fate, roofs all gone off. Hmmm all drugs and vaccines worth millions all soaked with water,Leaving our director in Tears and saying if actually his contractor used building materials from Emilinks no matter how strong the wind was his company and his quarters would have still been standing firm. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory

    2014 was the year, we had only lived in this house for like 5 months, like you know how fresh everything usually is, the paint, the mirrors, doors, everything was just lush and on point, Dad had spent a good amount of money paying the vendors who carried out the furnishing of the house, this was our very first house, finally our own house, our joy knew no bound. I for one i’m very particular about my room, cause for me its kind of like my own little sanctuary. Now on first sighting, the room looked really nice to me, and I loved everything and absolutely couldn’t wait to put in my stuff and upload pictures online for my friends to see. Now on this particular day I was taking a picture before church as we were about to leave for church and BOOM! the wardrobe door comes crashing alongside the mirror on it; like till this day I absolutely cant believe it, for heaven’s sake everything in this house was new. Dad was devastated, for the first time ever in my life, I witnessed firsthand how catastrophic Inferior goods can be. A colleague of my dad’s at work suggested we try the Nigerian Brand door #Emilinks ( my first time hearing that), after much persistence, my dad who is usually skeptical about Nigerian Brands however went ahead and replaced our wardrobe with #Emilinks. it has been 2 yrs of this wonderful journey with #Emilinks and I have absolutely no regrets, like looking at it everyday just gives me so much joy.
    Thank God Dad currently plans on changing all the doors in the house to #Emilinks some tome next year, of course on my insistence.
    Thank You #Emilinks for defying all odds and producing real quality doors and furniture, may you continue to soar higher. Oshe oooo!!!!!!

    @bellanaija, The importance of building houses with quality materials can not be over emphasized. . The frequency of collapse building structures in Nigeria in the past few years have become very alarming and worrisome and many lives and properties have been lost. for years have been hearing about collapsed building both in newspapers and from people but i never gave it much thought not until i witnessed it. There was a 5 storey building in my street that has been in existence for 2 years. which occupied lots of families.
    One day, there was a heavy rain and the building was shaking and the building was almost down. so, occupants of the house started screaming and people started running for their lives. while some people were trying to run for their lives the building collapsed and people were trapped under the building. many lives and properties were lost and i started asking myself questions and i realized that the building collapsed not because of the rain but because quack materials were used in building the house.
    So, to avoid buildings being collapsed, it’s is best to go for quality building materials such as Emilinks. #Emilinkssaves

    Buildings, like all structures, are designed to support certain loads without deforming excessively. The loads are the weights of people and objects, the weight of rain and the pressure of wind–called live loads–and the dead load of the building itself.
    Collapse of buildings is not new to Nigeria, neither is it only peculiar to Nigeria, however that will not stop us from taking critical look at the situation and finding a solution to it.
    Collapse of building though can happen to any kind of building but the casualty of multistorey buildings can be so terrible.I asked myself what could have been the causes of collapsed building only to realized that quack building materials is the major cause of collapsed building and to be on a safer side the best is to go for quality building materials like EMILINKS.
    Indeed i rep #Emilinks .

    My dad lost most of his contract bids because they always claimed it was more expensive than the other contractors.
    I remember as an accounts student I helped him prepare the proposed expenses. it amounted to #30,000,000. I noticed how expensive the materials were.
    Six months later the same house he lost a contract to collapsed leading to the death of 6 people. all because in trying to cut cost they went for a contractor who’s bid was #15,000,000. such difference.
    A year later they came begging my dad to build the house without haggling the #32,000,000 proposed estimate.
    There’s no safety compared to living in a house with a solid foundation and good quality materials.

    With the level of corruption in this country and the dwindling
    economic situation, people are ready to compromise. They
    don’t mind using substandard materials, so far they would
    complete their house on time. Building collapse has become
    very rampant these days and people need to understand the
    importance of using good quality and standard
    materials.There is nothing like having shelter,but not just an
    ordinary shelter built with substandard materials, but shelter
    built with good and quality materials such as #emilinks, a
    global manufacturer of world class furnitures and finishings
    that makes doors, wardrobes, beds, kitchen, roofs, shelves
    and many more.
    Its high time regulatory bodies such as Standard
    Organisation of Nigeria(SON), National Association of Civil
    engineers, National Association of quantity surveyors etc.
    take a big stand on this and eradicate substandard products
    completely. Emilinks has taken that stand already and they
    are leading us to greater good. They have bettered the lives
    of people by securing their lives and property and protecting
    us against theft, collapse, diseases, frustration, money
    wastage and many more. #Emilinks is world class.
    I remember some few years back when heavy rain fell.it
    was disastrous, upseting and frustrating.Our rented house
    was in shambles. Our so called landlord, with his stingy
    attitude built the house, a 3- bedroom flat with substandard
    materials. My dad compained over and over , all to no avail.
    It was until that heavy rain fell, that he knew what
    substandard building materials can do to lives and property.
    After the heavy rain, our wall collapsed, my mum was
    lucky,it did not kill her but she sustained some injuries, the
    house was flooded due to leaking roof. My dad’s documents
    were soaked. All he had worked for, we managed to savage
    the little we could.It was really bad, we had to move in with
    my aunt for a while.It was at that time my dad completed
    his house and he made no mistake when he was buying his
    building materials, he made sure all his building materials
    were from #emilinks, the bed, shelves,roofs,doors,kitchen.It
    was time to live a new life.We would never forget what
    substandard building materials did to us.
    Choose #emilinks today and you will not regret your
    decision.Instead you will thank God everyday you did. #day24

    After my football training, I was strolling back home on a cool evening, suddenly i heard a great sound as it was a bomb last, I quicker ran to take cover so that I could really observe what is happening and also where next to run to. What I saw was people running to one direction shouting help! o help.o, out of fear i stayed put then about five minutes later i walked to where i saw people gathering with there two hands on their heads, I mixed up with them and moved closer. It was a collapsed building, that people even said it was built four years ago. Then i now understood why my Dad chose Emilinks for building materials when he was building our house. Knowing that we are safe with Emilinks we have no worries #Emilinks #MyDoorStrory

    This brings to Mt mind the collapsed building in Lekki some months ago, claiming over 30 lives. There is just one explanation for that unfortunate incidence “inappropriate or substandard building materials”. We have recorded several tragedies in that regard in the past few years. The fact that we are in dire need of housing does not mean that we should build shoddy or substandard houses. Such waste of lives and dreams can be avoided, and we all have our parts to play. The importance of using Quality and Standard materials cannot be over emphasized. If we are stick to quality and not quantity we will avoid all these unfortunate incidence. #emilinks #mydoorstory

    It is always good to be knowlegdable. My husband and i have always been in a haste to the completion of the building our house not minding the fact if it was properly built with quality building materials.We didnt care anyways afterall the “painting of the house will cover all the flaws”. Only if we knew there was more to this. Our contractor wasnt experienced at all so also contributed to this great loss. Our building was finally completed and furnished before the end of the year, and collasped in the middle of the next year.We lost everything in the process because we did not use quality materials.
    We continued to pay rent until we finally decided to build again. We decided not to make that mistake again, so we attended different serminars and worshops on “Building with quality materials” by Emilinks. The last workshop was the best and impactful. So i thought to share:
    ” when you start your building project, you will want to look for a reputable company to construct and design your house. It is very important to be sure they are using good quality building materials throughout the process.
    The first step to ensure they are using high quality building materials is to do a research on the contractor by asking to visit completed projects and getting a feel of the quality materials used. The contractor and team should also be very experienced.
    For building materials like doors and windows, it is especially important to choose high quality products for proper security and beauty…”
    After the workshop, Emilinks gave open tickets to potential builders to use their contractors. We signed up and gave them a chance. Today, our house is fully completed and secured with Emilinks quality building materials.
    Emilinks is really the best in the field!

    You know something with we top government contractors? When given building projects with lots of money, we just use substandard materials to save cost then pocket the rest for our selfish purposes, but use top notch building materials like Emilinks when it comes to our personal building projects. After a particular incident, i vowed never to build with low quality materials all in the name of greed.
    I was given the contract to build a hotel in my community and the money released to me for this was so much to build another hotel for myself. So i decided to divert more than half of the money as much. I got the fake building materials and equipments for the completion of the hotel. I was fulfilled again not knowing this will lead to a terrible event. My colleagues had always told me to use Emilinks products that i use for my personal building projects for these government contracts, but i always turned deaf to the warnings.
    So the hotel had commenced usage and complaints always came to me about one thing or the other spoiling or falling on its own, but i always got them done back.
    On this faithful day, the hotel was hosting some South Africans that came for a project in the community. I was excited about the way customers were filling my “hand work” so i brought my family and friends to come and eat dinner in the hotel i built.
    Duriing the dinner, my phone started ringing, so i went outside the hotel premises to pick the call as it was a very important business call. For over 35 minutes i was still on this call until i heard a very loud banging noise “bwaaaah!!! Greeeee!! Bghhhhrrr!!!”. I turned back in so much curiousity and i froze. “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!, my family! My family” was what i screamed as i witnessed the hotel collapse in my very befall. This should be a night mare i prayed. I tried to get in through the collapsing hotel but it so bad.
    To cut the long and sad story short, every one that was in the hotel died including the south african visitors and my family. This was the most miserable time of my life and i cried profusely.
    As i roled on the bed in sorrow,my phone rang, then i realised it was just a dream. I made a vow hence forth to use good quality building materials hence forth like Emilinks in whatever building project i had. Afterall that could be a revealation i thought. Resist bad news with Emilinks top notch building materials!

    It sounded like a thunder storm that unfaithful morning. And I could feel my bed vibrating. “Is it about to rain?” I asked myself, because we were still in the heart of the dry season. While I was still wondering what was going on, I started hearing people crying and shouting around the neighborhood. With just a wrapper hung around my chest, I ran out of the house as fast as I could with different thought running through my mind. As soon as I got outside, behold, Uncle Akhule’s house that he just finished building and was planning to move in a week later had turn into a heap of rubble.

    Uncle Akhule who had just retired from civil service, funded the construction of the building with his gratuity. What a catastrophe!

    Like one would expect, He had a shock as soon as he got the information and till date he is still trying to recover from the cerebrovascular accident. His not living life but merely existing and waiting for the day he will breathe his last.

    All this was happened because of using substandard materials in constructing a building. Thank God he did not move in with his wife and his children before the building collapsed. I would have been telling a different story.

    Life is to be enjoyed and not to be endured. Do you really want to enjoy life? Please award your building project to a contractor that has Emilinks on his lip. With Emilinks, you will certainly enjoy life, because quality is Emilinks’s watchword.

    The Importance of Using Quality Building Materials When you start your custom infill home building project, you will want to choose a reputable company to design and construct your new home, and it is important to be sure that they are using quality building materials throughout the process. The first step you should take to ensure that you contractor or builder uses high-quality material is to do some research. Make sure that your contractor and their team has extensive experience in constructing the type of home you’re looking to build. Ask if you can visit some completed projects and get a feel for the quality of materials and workmanship used in those homes. You will then have to decide if you are looking to build a home with green and energy efficient materials. You will find that most reputable home builders will give you a choice of green products that will help your home become energy efficient. Using quality building materials whether or not they are green certified or energy efficient is essential for your long term investment and safety. There are many green products on the market today that are both beautiful and functional. Many green products that are environmentallyfriendly are also energy efficient in your home making your initial investment pay off in the long term. For building materials like windows, it is especially important to choose a high quality product. Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing an energy efficient window, you can block out some of the harmful rays and at the same time, the quality of the windows will help reduce heat loss in the winter and keep in cooler air in the summer. Insulation is another product where a good quality is preferred. High quality insulation will help retain heat in the winter and decrease energy demands on your heating and cooling systems. You may also wish to consider other types of insulation available such as acoustic insulation or fire retardant insulation. The wood used in the framing of your new infill home is another important consideration. Using properly treated wood products such as BluWood can prevent fungus, mold and wood ingesting pest infestations. Not only are you using a superior building material, but you are also protecting your health and safety. Excellent roof construction can provide significant long term savings when using quality materials. A roof can account for up to 50% of a home’s total surface area, so this is one place to spend a little more money making sure it is done right. The use of quality roofing materials is imperative to ensure it is durable, and has water tight protection. If quality materials are not used, this can cause significant damage on your investment in a custom built home.

    Before I returned to Nigeria to spend some quality time with my family, I remembered how my wife who’s a chef used to complain on skype about my twin boys Michael and Micah always getting out of bed on the days she had to fry plantain very early to deliver to her clients. The kids would wake up because of the noise generated when bleaching and the sweet smell of dodo (sadly dodo is the only thing they love more than me). And when the kids are up that early your morning can never be peaceful – not when Wrestlemania is their favourite programme on TV.

    So, I wondered why my boys suddenly preferred snoring to their beloved dodo smell until I noticed how carefully my wife shuts the door which I used to call ‘magical door’.

    I couldn’t help but ask where she got it from and she said Emilinks.
    At Emilinks you don’t only get strong durable doors but sound and smell proof ones. I can’t wait to make an order as we begin the construction of our family house in the village come November.

    I could recall when we still lived in our old house. My mum had actually warned my dad about the house telling him he got it cheap simply because the materials used are substandard. My Dad said nothing will happen and that its just for a while till our home is completed.
    We lived in this house without any issues until one night when heavy rain started pouring down. I was home alone doing assignments, Dad travelled Mum went out. Suddenly I heard this loud crash, it was so loud I knew it wasn’t thunder. I peeped out to check and behold, half of the other tenants building was gone. I was shocked and my heart started racing because of the worst that could have happened to people still inside the building. I rushed outside and I could hear screams of ‘help! help!’ Coming from the collapsed building. I entered and found people badly injured and stucked. I was about running back to get more help when they begged me not to but just try my best because their pain was unbearable. I listened and started clearing and pulling obstructions in front and off people.
    Something caught my eye suddenly, it was a body but wasn’t breathing. I screamed and others noticed and helped him out. He had lost a lot of blood so we rushed him to the hospital.
    My mum returned the next day, after hearing and seeing what happened, she called my immediately. He arrived the next day. After calming us down again, he promised us two weeks and we were out. After we packed, we later heard the owner of the building and the contractors were arrested for endangering lives with a weak building built with substandard materials. Luckily, the other guy who was unconscious didn’t die, so no death was recorded.
    I learned a lesson that day(which is a day i’ll never forget) that substandard materials used in building are dangerous. We should all avoid using them or patronizing these buildings especially because it is cheap. Remember money can’t buy life, be wise #Emilinks #Day24 #MyDoorStory

    #Emilink #mydorstory Building strong houses is not for the people in cities alone, people in remote villages still should build houses with standard materials. Emilinks is there 24/7 to assist you with it however you want it. Or do u think emilinks is there just for the people building hotels, restaurants, apartment buildings alone? No! they are there for people who need there help in standard materials for there home. And you know what, it’s all in affordable prices and they are the best. Let me share a little story about one wedding I attended in my town. After the Reverend have finished with the service, its now time for photographs as they were snapping with different styles they decided to take one while resting there back on the wall, guess what the red colour of the wall was just like a stamp on the brides back. This is just paint oo. And this was a hall built with millions of naira. Judging from the paint, you will see that the building was built with substandard materials. So Its very important to build houses with standard materials. If you are in a big church built with standard material when the pastor ask the congregation to match satan with your feet like what they do in most churches, (match am match am e don die) You will be bold to match knowing that you are protected with the holy spirit and standard materials in the building.

    After struggling in the United Kingdom for 4 years and working several jobs, my fiance decided to build a house in Nigeria before coming back the following year to begin our marriage preparations. He has always believed in having a home before starting a family.
    He sent the money in 3 installments to his brother to begin the construction.
    On one of my inspections, I noticed the walls of the house having cracks and I spoke to my fiance about it who in turn spoke to his brother who insisted he had used the best materials. After all, how could he lie to his own brother. #sideeye
    Long story cut short, my fiance returned and preparations went under way for our marriage.
    Two months after moving into the house, we noticed cracks on the walls and leaks whenever rains fall. One unfortunate night as we were doing what married people do, we heard a loud crash and our roof fell in! We had to move in with a friend as newly weds till our house got fixed up. What a waste of money, time and marriage goals. Lol. If only we had used quality materials such as Emilinks. I have already warned my fiance though, it is Emilinks or nothing!

    The importance of quality and genuine building materials is not restricted to our homes alone but it should also be used for building our industries and business buildings.
    This is what happened the last time i visited my uncle in the east.
    Mr Ezeogwu wanted to start a business and he set out by building his house he planned to use. Mr Ezeogwu was in a hurry to complete his edifice as he will always put it. He was not concerned about the materials used, he even bought cheap materials from road side stores and he completed the building in less than a year and stock up the place with goods. All seemed to be smooth, he was make enough profits, the money was coming in but as he will have it one night, one off the switches for putting on the light caught fire probably it got too hot and could not conduct enough electricity because it was substandard product. That night there was nothing anybody could do. There were flames everywhere. What bit my imagination most is this, after the inferno, not even a piece of zinc was found. Even d doors and window materials all got burnt without the slightest trace of any remains. The ceiling boards used were all roasted as if it was Armageddon. I guess he learnt hjs lessons the hard way. Thank God for Emilinks who supplies quality materials. With Emilinks there no word like substandard.

    The Importance of Building Houses with Quality Material’s and not Substandard Material’s in Your Home

    Let me share a valuable lesson I learnt when constructing my building with you, then I’ll tell you a secret, if you read to the end.

    When you start your own building project, you will want to choose a reputable company to design and construct your new home and it is important to be sure that they are using Quality Building materials throughout the process.

    The first step you should take to ensure that you contractor or builder uses high-quality material is to do some research.  Make sure that your contractor and their team has extensive experience in constructing the type of home you’re looking to build.
    Ask what kind of materials they will use for their doors, windows, cupboards, if they don’t mention Emilinks, dump them, sharp!

    Using quality materials is essential for your long term investment and safety. There are many good products on the market today that are both beautiful and functional. But you need one that will stand the test of time in quality, taste and security.

    Many Emilinks building products that are environmentally friendly are also energy efficient, thus saving you money in the long run.

    For building materials like doors, windows, cupboards, it is especially important to choose a high quality product.
    Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing good doors and windows, you can block out some of the harmful rays and be secured at the same time.

    Excellent choice of construction materials can provide significant long term savings when using quality materials. The use of quality materials is imperative to ensure it is durable, and has water tight protection. If quality materials are not used, this can cause significant damage on your investment in a custom built home and a lack of security.

    Now the lesson.
    Tunde my oga and I started the construction of our properties about the same time, he used some very expensive but inadequate doors windows and wardrobes. After just 2 years his are falling apart and he is now angry with me that I did not show him the secret of where I got my Emilinks doors, wardrobes and cupboards. When I told him how much they cost, he nearly went bonkers.
    Now he’s replacing everything with Emilinks.
    The secret to a good project is therefore, Emilinks!
    What a lesson!!

    We really suffered in the hands of my step mother who had convinced my father (whether through jazz,i don’t know) to pursue us from the family house. I used to hear stories of father’s who turn their back on their children after they get a new wife, little did I know that I would face such. Life was all rosy and sweet when my mother was alive and we had never doubted that my father will treat us as intruders until tragedy struck in our home. My mum became sick suddenly, was diagnosed of cancer and she died shortly afterwards. Truly,life did not prepare us for such a blow and that was why my dad hurriedly married my mum’s “best friend” in order to bridge the gap and take care of us. But trust the power of a woman! Once she had secured my father’s love,she started turning his mind and attention away from us. Best friend indeed! Peace became an illusion in my home as we were always quarreling about food or one trivial matter. It got so bad that she had to convince my father to send us out of the family house. In order to maintain peace and sanity in the home,my father chose one of his lands and started building a bungalow hurriedly for us. Due to the tension in our house,he wanted everything to be ready as soon as possible. As a result,the house was completed in 3months and he didn’t even supervise the whole process, unlike him! Trust unsupervised contractors now,the siphoned the money they were paid and went for cheap,substandard materials. I was shocked at hearing that the house was already complete because I thought it would take up to a year in which I will have time on my side to convince my father otherwise. My siblings and I moved to the new house. Initially,we were happy that we were now somehow independent and will have peace but our joy was short lived! When the rains came,the roof will be leaking from different places and water will be dripping into the house, the walls got damp making the house always cold,the living room will be flooded and we will be scooping water from the parlor. Our mattress which was on the floor got soaked that we had to place mats on top of it to sleep. As the eldest who was now responsible for my younger ones,i had to run to the senior pastor in our church for help. As God would have it,the church held some meetings and decided to relocate us to a just finished building by Emilinks contractors in the church premises. Now,our joy knows no bounds because we are safe. Even though it’s just a one room apartment,we don’t mind. Because of Emilinks we have come to appreciate quality over quantity. Thanks for ensuring our safety,Emilinks

    I remember seeing on the news a breaking news about a school that collapsed. The news went further to state how students, children of parents whom have taken there time and effort to groom them to that stage in life, flying out from the collapsing school building. And I clinged to my husband crying and asking Why? What went wrong? And the most important, what if it were my child?

    I am most certain that those questions and even more ran through the heart of the parents of those children. But the reality was that they were gone, gone to be seen no more. Never to be held by their loved ones. Never to be kissed by dad & mom anymore. Their rooms are now empty. Their names never to be mentioned with just smiles but with tears.
    In the end, one question was finally answered, What went wrong? It was said to have been caused by the use of SUBSTANDARD materials. In fact, it was found out that most parts of the building that made up the pillars were actually cans of cement. Its that bad.
    But unfortunately, they’re all dead. And that scar won’t leave the hearts of their lives ones they’ve unwillingly left behind.

    It is very vital to keep using Standard materials for our buildings in the society in order to save our loved ones. Always do research before purchase.

    The Importance of Building Houses with Quality Material’s and not Substandard Material’s in Your Home

    Let me share a valuable lesson I learnt when constructing my building with you, then I’ll tell you a secret, if you read to the end.

    When you start your own building project, you will want to choose a reputable company to design and construct your new home and it is important to be sure that they are using Quality Building materials throughout the process.

    The first step you should take to ensure that you contractor or builder uses high-quality material is to do some research.  Make sure that your contractor and their team has extensive experience in constructing the type of home you’re looking to build.
    Ask what kind of materials they will use for their doors, windows, cupboards, if they don’t mention Emilinks, dump them, sharp!

    Using quality materials is essential for your long term investment and safety. There are many good products on the market today that are both beautiful and functional. But you need one that will stand the test of time in quality, taste and security.

    Many Emilinks building products that are environmentally friendly are also energy efficient, thus saving you money in the long run.

    For building materials like doors, windows, cupboards, it is especially important to choose a high quality product.
    Windows stream in ultraviolet light into your home, which can fade flooring and furniture. By choosing good doors and windows, you can block out some of the harmful rays and be secured at the same time.

    Excellent choice of construction materials can provide significant long term savings when using quality materials. The use of quality materials is imperative to ensure it is durable, and has water tight protection. If quality materials are not used, this can cause significant damage on your investment in a custom built home and a lack of security.

    Now the lesson.
    Tunde my oga and I started the construction of our properties about the same time, he used some very expensive but inadequate doors windows and wardrobes. After just 2 years his are falling apart and he is now angry with me that I did not show him the secret of where I got my Emilinks doors, wardrobes and cupboards. When I told him how much they cost, he nearly went bonkers.
    Now he’s replacing everything with Emilinks.
    The secret to a good project is therefore, Emilinks!
    What a lesson!!

    By Definitions:
    Wikipedia defined building or efices as a structure with roof standing permanently.

    Oxford dictionaafterafter house as a permanent or semi parmanent structure built to provide shelter and accomdation and comfort.
    The acid question is:
    While call it a house when shelter and comfort is far from it?
    When call it a house when afterafter a hard day job you still sleep with one eye open afraid of the unknown?
    In a quest to save money by our parents or make selfish profit most constructor buy substandard quality thereby indangering lives.
    The news of collapsed house, theft and burglary is taking the headline day after day and yet the lesson has refused to be learnt or haven’t We heard enough?
    OK, the other day it was synagogue killing thousand of people , nobody know if the fault is from the wind or foundation .who know who next?

    Pls my fellow citizen let say no to this let us use quality product like emilinks it for our good let do something that we will be grateful for tomorrow .
    Thanks.

    I took it for granted that everybody wished to live in a nice house within a nice neighbourthood , because I thought that everybody craved beauty .
    But I had a discussion about this with some people, and I was surprised to find out that quite a few people actually do not give a damn about the esthetics of their daily surrounding . This changes my way of understanding people , because as I thought that the search for beauty was universal among human beings, I also thought that people who lived in ugly places either had no taste /sense or were really too poored or lazy to try to improve them .
    I still do not understand why some people ‘ cannot care ‘ . Personally, it makes me sick and depressed to see ugly houses ( the exterior as much as the interior ). All I want to do is bulldozed them and rebuild something more beautiful. I have often wished that I (or someone else , or an assocaition) would have enough money to rebuild a city like Rome in its heydays .
    Restoring beautiful , but rundown neighbourhood would be one of the first thing I would do if I won , say N10,000 at the emilinks contest, Naturally it is not wasted money as a restored house can be sold for more afterwards .
    Another vital thing is harmony . I have seen neighbourhood with nice houses , but built in such different styles that it was disturbing .
    One of the top 5 reasons for which I couldn ‘ t stay longer than a few years in Japan was that the city architecture was too ugly , and the urban planning was disastrous (I also couldn ‘ t help complaining about it on a nearly daily basis ). For me, a nice environment is as essential as eating good food or feeling secure . I would happily trade my voting right (even my citizenship ) , or the cosiness of my house if it was to make it more pleasing for the eyes. I can live with few friends , but I couldn ‘ t live in a world without beauty (I din ‘ t know how the Japanese manage to survive , psychologically) .
    I realised how irritating and depressing it was for me to live in an ugly city or neighbourhood . On the contrary, it cheers me up when I see a masterpiece of architecture, which is partly why I like travelling so much . I can be in a state of ecstasy just by standing in front of some majestic ( neo) classical monuments .
    This is partly why I feel so strongly about
    punishing vandals , especially those who disfigure beautiful historic building with graffiti . For me vandalism against a beautiful historic building feels as painful as being kicked or punched by someone . Destroying completely such a building would feel like being beaten by a gang of thugs.
    I knew that I felt a bit stronger than average about the beauty of architecture or sculpure , but it really baffled me that some people with enough financial means would deliberately choose to live in an ugly house and neighbourhood .
    I don ‘ t know if it has to do with the fact that I am too ” visual ” , because I feel less strongly about painting . Maybe it has to be 3 -dimensional (the more sculptures and mouldings the better ), built with “noble materials ” ( I hate concrete ) , and on a scale big enough to fill one’ s field of vision .
    Nevertheless, I am certainly more visual than sensual, as I hate massages and don ‘ t care much about a confortable sofa or chair . I am pretty auditory too, as I can also feel in complete ecstasy with classical music (none else ) , but I guess that feeling strongly about music (type varying according to the personality ) is fairly universal – or am I mistaken again ? Yet I do not miss music when it isn ‘ t there, while I would always miss beautiful architecture and decoration . #emilinks #mydoorstory #day24

    I remember seeing on the news a breaking news about a school that collapsed. The news went further to state how students, children of parents whom have taken there time and effort to groom them to that stage in life, flying out from the collapsing school building. And I clinged to my husband crying and asking Why? What went wrong? And the most important, what if it were my child?

    I am most certain that those questions and even more ran through the heart of the parents of those children. But the reality was that they were gone, gone to be seen no more. Never to be held by their loved ones. Never to be kissed by dad & mom anymore. Their rooms are now empty. Their names never to be mentioned with just smiles but with tears.
    In the end, one question was finally answered, What went wrong? It was said to have been caused by the use of SUBSTANDARD materials. In fact, it was found out that most parts of the building that made up the pillars were actually cans of cement. Its that bad.
    But unfortunately, they’re all dead. And that scar won’t leave the hearts of their lives ones they’ve unwillingly left behind.

    It is very vital to keep using Standard materials for our buildings in the society in order to save our loved ones. Always do research before purchase.

    OK, last night, my grandma told me a story about the days of old, she said everything has changed in this century, atleast, life is easier now. Back then, she had to suffer lack of accommodation, as she had ran away from her village,because of the love of her life. I remember her expression, when she talked about how Freely “Ojukwu” would walk in and out of her then mud room, especially on his way back from the farm. yes, they had no doors. “He would blow me kisses from outside, and run back into my arms”, she said with a smile.

    It was in the same way, that she caught Ojukwu, kissing another girl in his own mud room, yes, for he too, had no door, and she could see through the room. She said she rushed into the room and smashed the metal calabash on Amarachi’s head. After that, she had to sleep in the bush that night, for fear that Ojukwu would WALK IN and kill her in her sleep. Ojukwu had come to her room, as she thought. In her absence, he had set her room on fire, for Amarachi, was with his child.
    But she was thankful for today, she had a roof over her head, not only a house, but one with strong, durable, long-lasting and reliable doors like Emillink doors.

    Just like Ojukwu could freely walk in and out of her house, doors let people in and out of our houses, it is the first thing they see, it tells them of the comfort and luxury awaiting them inside.

    Ojukwu had no privacy, which led to the drastic accident between my grandma and Amarachi. Doors give us privacy to be in our own world.

    My grandma had to sleep in the bush because her room had no door. Doors makes us secured in our houses, especially durable doors like Emillinks.

    To some extent, doors make us proud, it gives a sense of ownership, you know that feeling when you say ” please lock my door”? Or when you lock your door on your way out? I thought so too! For me, when I am going out and remember my door is Emillink, I just dab! Because I have nothing to worry about. #Emilink. #my door story #day 24

    Day 24 #mydoorstory #emilinks.
    Mogbe ooooo, Mogbe oooo, That was the noise i heard from the street at about 3am last year june. Families were in their homes sleeping when the unexpected happened.
    What could have happened, we kept asking each other that question then we all ran outside only to see that the building opposite my house has collapsed. we were all shocked and frightened to see it. There was lost of properties and lives. for hours people were trapped in the building but no one could help. It wasn’t a palatable event. what could have caused a building to collased? it was a question that needed an answer only to realize that the contractor used fake building materials. one lesson learnt from the incidence is that no matter how expensive good building materials are, The protection and safety it will give is Everlasting. That is why is best to go for building materials like Emilinks. Thank you emilinks for providing the best.

    #Emilinks #MyDoorStory
    My dad is a building contractor and as the first son of the family, whenever he has a building project, I go with him to the site.My dad is known for been a man of principles and this he took into his job.He goes for the best when constructing a building. From the woods to the blocks to the mixture of the sand and cement(not using more SAND than the CEMENT to keep money in his pocket).There are a whole lot of gifts from his clients in the house showing appreciation for a work well done.The use of good building materials for the construction of a house cannot be overemphasized. The house remains for years,from generation to generation. Stories of collapsed buildings do not come from buildings that were built with quality materials but from those built with cheap materials.A house built with good materials feels like a safe haven and you are certain of protection when you have doors like EMILINKS in the house too even though we know God is the ultimate giver of protection. You want that house to be seen by your CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, GREAT GRANDCHILDREN then use quality building materials and some of these can be gotten from Emilinks.Thank you Emilinks.

    We all know that houses built with quality materials cannot be compared with those built with inferior materials. These materials may be more expensive but they are worth it because they help build secure houses.You don’t get to see cracked walls,leaking roofs,windows eaten by termites and the rest.And most importantly Emilinks produces furniture that gives a house further protection. Their doors are the best one can possibly get.If you want that house to be seen by more generations to come, use quality materials like those of Emilinks and you won’t regret it.Thank you Emilinks.
