1) Rachel – #Day22 #MyDoorStory #Emilinks
We spent just two years in our former house and we learnt the lesson of our lives there.
The house looked really good from the outside but only those who lived inside understood the struggle, the pain and discomfort that house caused.
Our landlord chose to build the house with really crappy products. It was almost like we didn’t have a house, when there was a heavy rain, it fell on us even though we had a roof. We needed an umbrella inside our house, because of the bad roof! The doors were so bad that the rain will beat it so badly and escape freely into our rooms. Whenever rain fell, the next day, you will see everyone taking their mattresses under the sun to dry them. The worse part is that the rent was so high, yet we had no comfort whatsoever.
My next door neighbour once spent a whole month in the hospital because she left her new baby inside the house and when the rain came, it beat the blessed little chid so bad. It took the grace of God for his survival.
My husband and I learnt a lesson from all that, that is why when we were ready to build our own place. We took an extensive research that helped us make a decision on #Emilinks products. Now we are living in a real house. The beauty is not just in how it looks but we have true protection and that is what a house should provide, atleast, when good products are involved.
Thanks to Emilinks for putting quality above price.

2) Richard C. – Day22 #Emilinks #MyDoorStory
I am Mr Richard a student of polytechnic Nekede,I happen to witness the collapsing of a hostel beside mine. It happened on the 25th of October 2015,i just finished writing my 2nd semester exam and was walking home with my coursemates when we passed the on going building,we saw the workers mixing the sand and cement, then we noticed that the sand was more than the cement.
30 minutes later we had a loud noise,,,,,Guess What!!!!! The on going 3 storey building just collapsed,killing 3 workers and 2 student that were passing by on the spot, leaving so many others seriously injured. I was shocked cause It wasn’t long I passed there. “so I would have bin a victim”i said to myself.
This was how we lost 5 souls all because of a substandard building. If only the workers used the right quantity of materials such incident wouldn’t had happened. Good building saves lives and last long. I really thank God for my life.

3) kaycee – <This twist of story in the emilinks contest is one that has taken me down a very gruesome memory lane. During my service, I was posted to a construction firm with the influence of my uncle. After spending 5 years in the university studying material engineering, I knew the importance of using quality materials in every form of constricting. On of my visits to the site I was been trained to supervise, I noticed a fault in the balusters. I noticed they weren’t strong. I complained to the management and they said they will look into it but they dint. One fateful day, one of the builders was leaning on the baluster and unfortunately, it gave way and he fell down the flight of stairs. He was badly injured and was rushed to the hospital. When the management heard about the incident, they decided to investigate and found our the site engineer has been buying cheap and low quality balusters. He was sacked and made to return the money. It was a bad experience because people don’t know how important it is to use quality materials in buildings and it has caused more harm than good. I trust Emilinks brand dem be baba! makers of high quality materials and building furniture. My boss never fails to use their materials in any building contract we have be it a house or an office. Their doors and wardrobes are worth every shilling .. Lol..

5) Graceful W. – It all started like a joke? The house my dad built and we have lived in it not even more than a year, started falling apart right before my eyes.

At about 1:00AM on the 21st day of July in the year 2014, The MPH of the wind increased fairly. All of a sudden, the building started vibrating. Because I was the only one at home that night. I ran out immediately. Though the wind was fair, the building started collapsing. “Just like that?”, I said in awe. The house collapsed just like a pack of sand.

Thank God I was the only one at home that night but we lost all our properties.

What we thought was a blessing became a curse just because the contractor we awarded the building project to subsided the money and used all manner of substandard materials. The doors and windows were all counterfeits. And this almost cost my life. If a contractor does not use Emilinks product, I will certainly doubt his integrity. Because you cannot swim in a river and not be soaked with water.

As a young wife my husband made me choose the pattern of the building …and I also made sure quality and standard product like emilink is use i personally went to market with the constructor because some of them can actually buy substandard just to make profit not caring about the safety of others. Right now my house is beautiful, safe and secure from theft and save for my family above all am proud of my house! And the product used!

7) O. Zaynarb – #Emilinks #MyDoorStory Day 22
As a student and hostelite of unique university i have the privilege of knowing what happens in the hostel and how students hustle and scramble around for a good hostel.there are different hostels in the girls compound but students only rush one hostel which they even tagged ‘marble lounge’ because this hostel is the best hostel in the compound in terms of structure and quality foundation. In other hostels there are stories of destroyed buildings and fences.there are also signs on the buildings that they are not going to be everlasting unlike the ‘marble lounge’ building so students scramble and sweat out because they want a room in that hostel as it is the first of it’s kind.it’s not because of anything else than because that hostel is a good building made from quality and high standard materials from emilinks.now the school has more buildings under construction and the materials being used are gotten from emilinks.we all can’t wait for the new hostels to be completed as the hustle is real for marble lounge.

8) @edetanlenehis – @bellanaijaonline It was shocking to hear about the collapse of magnificent edifice worth 60 million naira(#60,000,000) built by the a chief in Amuke community. News around town had it that the building project was handled by a fraudulent contractor who specializes in using substandard materials in his building projects.
It all started after torrential rainfall that lasted 5hrs submerged he community in flood reaching 2meters. Houses built decades ago remain in their architectural position but only the house of the chief built 2yrs ago turned into a heap of rubble owning to the story that later came out that the contractor who handled the project used substandard materials. This is not the first time such disaster is happening in this part of the world were the quest for money has resulted to the use of inferior and substandard materials by contractors who are not interested in the quality of their work but after the financial benefit from such huge project.
There are many houses but only a few homes exist. There is a difference living in luxury and living in comfort.
One can live in a luxuriant house but won’t be comfortable because the materials used are substandard. Using the right materials for building can assure one of comfortability. How then can we recognize the right materials? The answer to this is not far fetch. Emilinks is the best choice for all housing materials.

9) @mhiz_phrosh – I was going through @bellanaijaonline earlier today and I came across the #emilinks #mydoorstory giveaway and it just reminded me of the aftermath of the heavy downpour that happened on Saturday and Sunday. A couple of houses lost their roofing sheets to the winds after Saturday’s downpour, when Sunday’s downpour began, although I knew my dad always go for the best, being human, I gave way to doubt.
So the calmness of my dad during Sunday’s downpour was reassuring. Then, he noticed my uneasiness and smiled. He called me by my pet name and said, ‘my dear, I got my building materials from #emilinks. Go and press your phone, we are safe.’ I smiled when he said those words and went straight to my room to resume my chats of course.
The bottom line is, when you invest in good building materials, you’re free from high blood pressure. #Day22

10) @deesignatures – @bellanaijaonline #Emilinks #BellaNaija #MyDoorStory
A house is a building or structure serving as a dwelling for one or more person, especially for a family.
A place that is most important to me is my home. For every person, some places hold great importance. To me, my home is the most important place where I live and spend most of the time. My home provides me with shelter that is very important for me. I feel safe and secure while at home. Almost all of my tensions become extinct just when I place my first foot in my home. I believe that home is the most peaceful place in the world where there is no tension or stress.
My home provides me with every facilities that I need in my life.
My house is build with high class quality materials such as Emilinks Woods for the roofing, doors, wardrobes, kitchen cabinet etc. Which makes my house stronger, powerful ?, reliable and secure for me and my family.
My house, my paradise.

    “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.

    I remember the last time I travelled from Kogi to Lagos. I got to Lagos so late at night due to the fact that there was rain and traffic.when I got down from the bus I hide myself under a building due to the rain.Then the rain reduced a bit I decided to leave the building and and get a cab to go home.
    I worked a few metres away then I heard a loud noise I taught it was a bomb so I ran. When I got to a place that I was save I stopped running i heard people saying it was a building that collapsed. I was so sorry for owner,but I taught to myself that why will people use bad materials to build houses? cause such building don’t last. Building a house with a good building materials provide safety to lives and property. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day 23 @bellanaija.

    When building the first thing that comes into the mind of every builder is Material Quality and Material Cost,its 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 long term investment but these days the reverse is the case,individuals/firms use these materials with or without their knowledge and they end end spending more in maintenance.House that wre built about ten years ago cannot be compared with recently built houses this because back then materials used were of high quality,now when you go to buy these materials one is given low qaulity materials(china materials)as they been called.
    Because a builder of a house wants quality materials to be used in his project he goes to these elaborate show rooms to buy where he is milked dry in the name of original and still some of the materials are fake.Im not saying they are no standard materials in market any more,but it’s just difficult buying one especially when you are a novice.And when you know what you want you could still be tricked by these seller because the standard ones and the substard ones are so alike.Even when the owner of a building goes with his or her plumber/tiler at the end of the day he goes home with these same fake materials because the plumber/tiler would collaborate with the seller to supply the substandard goods to make more profit,i’ve seen this happen more often than i can count, I feel pity for houses in lagos especially the lekki area,due to the salty water in lagos low qaulity materials cant stand this salty water.
    I believe in this country very much as a young man and i believe for this country to change everyone has to contribute in one way or the other,i guess this is the only way i can contribute i just want every Nigerian to be aware and not to throw away their hard earned money

    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!

    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

    @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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    I’m here to tell a story of mine about building and to tell the importance of buildings with Good Materials in our homes.

    This Building is located in my area, Abeokuta Ogun State. This Building saved my life from Hoodlums.
    This Building is quite far away from my parent’s house.

    On that faithful,I reached home around 8pm and no food at home to eat, so I decided to go out and find something to eat, two packs indomie precisely.
    Went out around 8:30pm to get the noodles.On my way going I met Dapo and Ibrahim,so we keep walking together. Dapo and I looked alike and on that day, we wore the same cloth. Earlier in the Afternoon,Dapo had went to the Motor Park to beat up a guy and caused Riot all because of a Girl who doesn’t even worth his Level but the girl always give Dapo Free Cash.

    Meanwhile,there are some dangerous 3(three) guys holding on machete,knives,axe and some other harmful objects waiting for Dapo to be coming back to his house alone so they could injure him or probably kill him.

    Dapo and Ibrahim stayed at one Malam(Hausa) shop to eat Bread and Egg but I can’t wait for them to finish their Food because I’m seriously Hungry. So I left, getting to where does dangerous Hoodlums were Hiding, I heard someone said ‘Ohun Niyen'(That’s Him) and I saw those guys running to where I am.

    I knew that day that I’m the New Usain Bolt of Nigeria.
    The building in this picture was the building I ran into and immediately closed the front door. And those guys were shouting ‘Oh God’ ‘Oh God’ ‘Oh God’ outside because they couldn’t break into the building and injured me.
    So, I’ve to call my Dad that some guys were running after me and my Dad called some of his friends,like 5 to 6 of his friends,and they all came over to the building I ran into and met those guys outside. So, they asked those guys why they are chasing me at night and they explained what happened earlier in the afternoon. I came out of the house and the guys were surprised it’s me and not Dapo.

    I couldn’t eat that Night and the next morning I saw the two packs of indomie I bought inside the Gutter.

    Hadn’t been the Building I ran into that night, I would have been killed and buried.
    Building is very essential even for Animals, to prevent them from thieves.

    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

    I Snapped this Building to tell a story of mine and to tell the importance of buildings with Good Materials in our homes.

    This Building is located in my area, Abeokuta Ogun State. This Building saved my life from Hoodlums.
    This Building is quite far away from my parent’s house.

    On that faithful,I reached home around 8pm and no food at home to eat, so I decided to go out and find something to eat, two packs indomie precisely.
    Went out around 8:30pm to get the noodles.On my way going I met Dapo and Ibrahim,so we keep walking together. Dapo and I looked alike and on that day, we wore the same cloth. Earlier in the Afternoon,Dapo had went to the Motor Park to beat up a guy and caused Riot all because of a Girl who doesn’t even worth his Level but the girl always give Dapo Free Cash.

    Meanwhile,there are some dangerous 3(three) guys holding on machete,knives,axe and some other harmful objects waiting for Dapo to be coming back to his house alone so they could injure him or probably kill him.

    Dapo and Ibrahim stayed at one Malam(Hausa) shop to eat Bread and Egg but I can’t wait for them to finish their Food because I’m seriously Hungry. So I left, getting to where does dangerous Hoodlums were Hiding, I heard someone said ‘Ohun Niyen'(That’s Him) and I saw those guys running to where I am.

    I knew that day that I’m the New Usain Bolt of Nigeria.
    The building in this picture was the building I ran into and immediately closed the front door. And those guys were shouting ‘Oh God’ ‘Oh God’ ‘Oh God’ outside because they couldn’t break into the building and injured me.
    So, I’ve to call my Dad that some guys were running after me and my Dad called some of his friends,like 5 to 6 of his friends,and they all came over to the building I ran into and met those guys outside. So, they asked those guys why they are chasing me at night and they explained what happened earlier in the afternoon. I came out of the house and the guys were surprised it’s me and not Dapo.

    I couldn’t eat that Night and the next morning I saw the two packs of indomie I bought inside the Gutter.

    Hadn’t been the Building I ran into that night, I would have been killed and buried.
    Building is very essential even for Animals, to prevent them from thieves.

    Day 23
    School was on break and it was going to be a long vacation. I was yet to find something to engage myself with pending when school will resume.
    One fateful morning, after two weeks of staying at home, my Inlaw called me and asked me to supervise his new building that was just commencing since I will have a good knowledge about building having studied building technology for 3years at the Enugu State university of Technology.
    I assumed work at the site the next day and noticed that the labourers were using substandard materials and were also mixing materials as they wish not as they were supposed to. Immediately, I introduced myself as their new supervisor and laid down new rules threatening to surcharge anyone who do not follow my instructions.
    They murmured what I could not understand and went back to work.
    ….four months down, work has been completed at the site and I was back to school.
    I was in my hostel one afternoon when my phone rang. It was my Inlaw..
    “Hello Sir, Good afternoon” i said on picking the call.
    “Good afternoon Kelvin. How are you and how is school?” He asked in a very clear and cheerful voice.
    “School is fine and how is the family sir?” I asked again.
    “we are all fine.” He answered.
    “Kelvin you see” he started “I must confess that am really impressed with the work you did during the building of my house. From the building, to its painting and furnishing.” I was already smiling and my head swelling. “You see, I invited those guys to build my house because of the speed they put up when building my friend’s house” he continued. “But unknown to me, they were using substandard materials. As am speaking to you now, my friend’s house has been reduced to nothing by a mere wind. His house collapsed in less than 6months after its completion.”
    “Holy Christ” I exclaimed, no longer smiling.
    “For your good works, I owe you a surprise. I will credit your account before the end of the day.” He said.
    “Thank you sir. It was my pleasure”. I replied.
    “Before I forget, who did the furnishing products such as doors, beds, kitchens, dining sets, wardrobes and shelves?” He asked.
    “O, that was emilinks. Emilinks uses a variety of innovative techniques blended with exclusive designs to build premium quality products with a record of excellence in all areas…” He ended the call before I could finish. I guess he was already rushing to visit the nearest Emilinks office.

    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.

    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.

    Building a modern house is not easy for some people but for some, it can be done with a twinkle of an eye. Such is life. I remembered some years ago. We all live in a hut built by my grandfather.
    A mud house, as the name suggests, is built using mud. Some stones are also used. In building a mud house, all the person need to do is to find clay soil, dig it out then mix is with some water until it becomes thick. Then the person lays the foundations using poles or sticks held together with ropes. After building the house, it is left to dry for some days. After which the roof is thatched using grass.
    Although, it provides shelter from wind and rain and also protects us from wild and dangerous animals. They can be easily destroyed by rain water and as such they are used for a temporary period because they do not last for more than ten years. Most of the houses are feeble and can easily be carried by floods. And not only that, a mouse or snake can easily dig deep into mud and enter inside the house. Because it is not tightly done, some people living in such houses need to always burn firewood to keep their body warm or be prepared to die of cold. Such was the case of our house in the village.
    We normally suffer from insects bite and sometime wake up with lumps on our hands. At that time, I don’t allow people to visit our house because I know that they will know that our house is substandard. And possibly make fun of me with that. So I keep my friends at bay and doesn’t allow them to trace me back home. I kept praying that God will help us to change the house until as we were sleeping, the fire kept in other to warm the room caught wrapper and the whole house caught fire. What woke us up was the smoke that was choking us. We ran helter shelter trying to put the fire off but it was like pouring fuel inside the fire. Although no life was lost but we couldn’t save any of our belongings We didn’t know what to do other than to beg a neighbor to allow us sleep at his place. So my father decided to take a loan from a friend to build a standard house. Now we don’t have to worry about snakes, scorpions and the rest of them

    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!

Each rooms had It’s own Emilinks wardrobe.The kitchen itself was like a Fortress on its own. New Emilinks furnitures were all around..I thought I was in heaven and wished to stay in it forever. My uncle must have spent a fortune of money, thinking and hardwork into this. Good building materials make up a good buildings. Patronize Emilinks now!!!!

    Leaving ones parents in the village all alone is not good. I can categorically remember one thing that happened some months back. Due to the bad state of my grandma’s health, my parents resolved to send me down to the village to stay with my grandma till they are able to get a caregiver that will be taking good care of her. The choice of the person to go was made because everybody around believes that grandma has a soft spot for me but I am no exception to grandma’s excessive complaints. She complains a lot. At first I was reluctant to go because of her complaint but one look from dad showed me that I have no choice in this matter. So I consoled myself with the thought of having to eat fresh mangoes and pears since it’s the season. I got ready and left.
    On reaching home, my grandmother was so happy to see me; she told me virtually everything that has happened in the village since we last visited. We rounded up with eating our local delicacy Abacha(African salad). Once its bedtime, I entered inside the house to arrange the bed, I discovered that the wood used in making the bed is bad and some part of it has fallen off making the mattress on top of to sink into the middle. This is the reason why she complains of waist pains. I managed to make the bed arranged and used some wood to hold it so that it can carry the two of us. So we slept, I noticed that something were biting me while we were sleeping but I chose to ignore it because I was very tired after the day’s journey. It was when water started splashing on me that I woke up with a fright only to find out that our roof was leaking water and the whole mattress has been soaked. I made quick effort to stand up immediately and the bed collapsed making my grandma to shout
    ‘Chai!!! Nwa I gbuo m, ukwu m (Chai!!! This child you have killed me, my waist.).
    I quickly offered my apology, grabbed the broom to sweep out the water, then I saw our big fat pregnant goat inside our room. I shouted. My grandma asked what the problem is and I pointed at the goat. I locked the door, how did this thing manage to enter here? That was when granny explained that due to the poor state of the door, that one head butt from a goat can open it and maybe the poor goat was running from the rain. I couldn’t sleep again and the rain continued through the night. Jesus, this is too risky.
    The next morning I called my parent and narrated the whole ordeal to them. I pleaded with them to change the bed, the roof and our door. Which they did to #Emilinks standard doors and bed. The roof was also changed. My grandma’s waist pain reduced and her health came back.
    Thanks to Emilinks for saving my grandma

    Day 23 #mydoorstory #emilinks
    The importance of building with standard materials cannot be over emphasized. Everyday countless lives are lost from accidents caused by substandard building materials. You will appreciate the quality of life only when you pay a visit to the hospital where I work as an accident and emergency nurse. Almost on a daily basis, I handle near death cases which could have easily been prevented. Prevention they say is better than cure,but unfortunately, many people do not heed that advice. One of the cases that I remember vividly was about six laborers that were victims of a collapsed building. The contractor had apparently been paid handsomely to build twin duplexes,only for him to buy cheap and substandard materials in order to make excess gain. The building project was well underway until it got to the roofing level and all came crashing down on the unfortunate six workers. They sustained serious injuries,ranging from smashed skull,broken ribs,internal bleeding to fractured legs and arms,excessive bleeding from multiple wounds and several cuts and bruises. The hospital was really bathed in blood that day! We had to do all we could to save their lives but unfortunately lost two of them who had a blunt puncture wound to the chest (the heart was affected) and the broken skull respectively. The other four are still recovering and i’m sure they have learned a lesson, albeit bitter. To build a house with quality materials is not as expensive as we think,apparently, greed is more expensive because it costs lives. Be wise today, do not work for contractors that want to make easy cash. Remember, a living dog is better than a dead lion.

    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!!!!

    Hmmm, this reminds me of an event that took place years ago. When I still lived with my parents, we lived in a house that literaly shook once it rained. It was obvious that the materials used were of substandard quality. The icing on the cake was when the roof actually came off during a heavy thunderstorm. Damn it was scary. How we survived that night I really cannot say now, but we did and had to move out for almost a month for refurbishing to take place. This taught me a valuable lesson to always use quality products and that is why I will always choose Emilinks product when I build my house. #Emilinks#Mydoorstory#Day 23

    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

So I cleaned,painted and all.But there was something missing..A WARDROBE!I needed somewhere to arrange my clothes,shoes,bags,scarfs and all.My field requires having a proper dress sense,looking neat and smart and that requires a good wardrobe.I made enquiries and was advice to get an Emilinks wardrobe..God bless the soul who gave me that advice..Having an Emilinks wardrobe is the best thing that happened to my room.When my friends come visiting, they must make positive comments about my wardrobe.. Two of them eventually got Emilinks wardrobe in their place of residence. Emilinks wardrobe is an essential in every home,it makes arrangement easier.You want that room to be envied by others..GET AN EMILINKS WARDROBE and thank me later.

    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.

    As if Emilinks knew….This is a live report from Abuja. A 3 storey building collapsed this morning killing 3 people. If only the building was standard and quality materials were used, such incident wouldn’t had occurred, now it has left the area in havoc and mourning,3 souls are lost already. Using good materials and employing professionals is paramount. It disrupt certain things like
    1.Loss of lives
    2.Destruction of properties
    3.chaos in the vicinity
    4.Additional expenses.
    But with standard buildings,all these are averted.

    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.

    Day 23 #emilinks #mydoorstory
    I have a firsthand experience with living in a house built with substandard materials and trust me, it’s not a funny experience. In my former house,i used to be so afraid to leave the house whenever it rains because I don’t know what disaster may be awaiting when I come back. It’s either the parlor is flooded and the cushions get damp or my TV has fallen from the wall and smashed Once it rains,all the walls become damp,the whole house becomes humid and starts to smell. As a result,unwanted insects especially mosquitoes and termites use my house as their breeding site! I was always embarrassed whenever I had visitors because they must go home with mosquito bites after all the sleepless nights. I have replaced my flat screen TV twice as they always fell from the wall whenever the walls become damp. I really suffered in that house because it was owned by a family friend and I was busy suffering and smiling. It had to take one of my visitors to boldly sit me down one day and advise me to move to another house. He directed me to one of the houses that was almost was being built and almost completed and gave me the assurance that he was the supervising Engineer and all the materials were bought from Emilinks which has been tried and trusted over the years. As soon as I had that assurance I quickly paid an advance to the agent to secure the place for me. Thankfully now,i live in a comfortable two bedroom flat which is free from mosquitoes and insects, my TV is safe on the wall again,rain or no and the house is well insulated. My joy know no bounds and I owe it to Emilinks!

    When I traveled to bayelsa to school there, 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!!

    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.

    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.

    I am a young business woman based in port Harcourt. One of my investments is in landed properties. Though it is money and time consuming, this business gives me joy and satisfaction as it helps me to put smiles in the faces of the few persons who are oppurtuned to be my tenants.
    Generally, people say landed properties appreciates. Little did they know that the secrete to that fact, lies only in quality building materials, as using substandard materials makes landed properties to depreciate with the passage of time.
    With what I see Nigerians who wants to be “economical” so to speak experience, using substandard building materials gives headache to occupants and more to the landlords and house / estate agents, as substandard building materials cause wastage of money and time through renovations for as long as the building exist.
    Using substand materials also brings dissatisfaction to the occupants and disputes between landlords/ landladies, house/estate agents and tenents and ultimately, it CLAIMS LIVES.
    These adverse effects made me resolve in my heart NEVER to BUILD any of my houses with SUBSTANDARD building materials, hence I always purchase some of my materials such as the furniture and finishings from Emilinks.
    Over the years, I have realized from my experience with my tenants that, using high quality building materials gives me joy and satisfaction. It makes makes my house agents spend less on maintenance making it more economical. It has also established a cordial relationship between me, my house agents and my tenants, as my houses gives them satisfaction, peace of mind and safety.
    Using high quality building materials has also added value to my buildings, hence my tenants ONLY RELOCATE either when they have gotten their PERSONAL buildings, or as a result of work transfer to other cities / states.
    So far, I have 9 buildings in port Harcourt and it is my determination to continue to use high quality building materials for all my landed properties.
    Thanks to Emilinks for giving me the opportunity and medium to highlight the importance of using high quality materials for building houses.

    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.

    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!!!!!!

    Building with Quality materials is simply the best. It took my dad about five years to finish building our house at Ikorodu but it wasn’t easy because it looked like a long time but he wanted the best materials hence he took his time. We were staying in a rented apartment on the mainland and we dread the rainy season cos of the leaky roof even after calling repairers to mend it, if there is a heavy downpour and we are not home… our heart becomes heavy or is it the noise from the neighbours because of the thinned walls which makes us eavesdrop to their conversation. Sometimes, our neighbours would come and make use of our electrical appliances as the poor connection of the light has ruined the power supply. When we finally moved into Our home, the feeling was and is beautiful. My dad has a great taste, the Doors, Wardrobes were all @Emilinks. The joy of being safe and secure when we are at home or out can not be quantified.

    #Emilinks#My door story#Day 23. The importance of building houses with quality materials and not substandard materials should be very paramount in the mind of the owner, architect and contractor. This will promote safety and protection of individuals. A house is supposed to be a source of refuge and shelter from unfavourable conditions. The reverse is the case in our society. These days, Many a individuals want to complete a Building project quickly without actually sitting down to contemplate the effect of using substandard materials and the hazard and the shame that comes along with it. This incident happened in my street. A day was set aside for the House warming of a certain man. Announcement had gone far and wide. On this day, many people were in attendance. while celebration was going on, a noise was heard like the rumble of the earth quaking and before we could decipher the noise, the building had given way and was crumbling. This was supposed to be a new house and one that is supposed to last for years to come. Many people were injured and more expenses were incurred that would have been averted if good and quality materials like Emilinks product had been used which have got durability.

    Building maintenance is an important program for the sustainability of infrastructural development in Nigeria. The reason behind various unfinished houses in Nigeria is not far fetched, it is caused by lack of proper structuring and planning, settling for cheap artifacts and many misplaced priorities. Hence there tend to be many weak houses. This is a major setback and a clog in the wheel for many would-be house owners. We are new house owners, my dad couldn’t bear the heat as he soughtto strive to ensure owning a home of his. Our previous home at Ilo awela, ota Ogun state was in a deplorable state. Despite the exorbitant rent paid, our windows had no burglary proof and had on two occasions lost valuables mysteriously. Prior to the completion of our new home, I had always known my dad as a fashion type and always knew what was invoke, we went for sight seeing and I saw our home almost ready.He said this are the doors you watch in nollywood movies, they define class and they are security guaranteed. I can make bold to say that our home is furnished from the kitchen , to doors ,dining sets, wardrobes and my dad’s shelves which he keeps his own personal library. Personally, I can not give an account of petty theft or sudden disappearance of valuables since we moved to our new home, Emilinks produces doors , beds, dining sets, and are patronized by private individuals and firms offices, hotels , and Royal places. When you tend to manage resources in a way not depicting prudence but misery then be sure to have your home in a state you wouldn’t like after few years.
    Yes, #emilinks produces fire proof doors , impenetrable by inferno and internal doors as well.
    My dad was however told by his close friend Uncle Waheed who lives at Ijebu ode. He got the furniture from a show room in Lekki-epe road .

    The EMILINKS contest brought back sweet memories to me.
    My grand Father’s house in the village is a proof of the benefits of using good standard materials in building houses. I did not meet my grand father alive but I met a part of him (his house). It is said that my grand fathers house was the first block house in my community, many generation have come and gone but the house is still there.
    Grand father’s house have so many memories it holds such as Traditional marriages, naming ceremonies, burials e.t.c yet the house still stands strong.
    The house have nursed people who have become doctors, lawyers and engineers yet age have not made the house to cave in.

    We have installed EMILINKS doors to give it great sense of security and also painted the house over and over again to give it the face of modernization but the building does not have any crack in it, the foundation still stands strong.
    Last year, I took my children home for the first time, and with pride, I beat my chest and told them that the house was my grand fathers house.
    Using good standard materials in building houses does not only guarantee safety, it equally helps us to be rooted in culture.
    Using standard materials have helped us preserve the heritage my grand father left behind.

    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.

    #Emilinks #Mydoorstory #day23 Moving out of the barracks as a teenager was quite disheartening for me after the death of my dad, I loved and cherished every memory of that block,though our block was quite difference in terms of features from other blocks reason being that it was the last block to be built. But that building was where I made real childhood friends who were my sisters and brothers,I took my first steps in that building. After moving out in 2005, I always hope and pray for long life so I can go back there someday and show my children where I was raised and share some sweet memories with them. All these memories came to total ruins in 2014 when the sudden the news of a collapsed building made the news headlines, to my greatest surprise I found out that the building being talked about was this same building I grew up. All that came to my mind was the old stories my dad would tell us concerning that building, that it was the last to be built among others hence the reason for the poor structure. This was not an excuse to use poor building materials and with Emilinks your no 1 stop for original building materials be sure to get good quality materials.

    As humans we think cutting corners would save us some money. If only we cn sit back and think of lives lost everyday to substandard buildings and fittings. We ask ourselves what we ended up doing with the few bucks we saved. Can it be compared to d pains caused by loss of lives and properties or the impact those lives would have made to our community . The campaign for standard materials and structures cannot be overemphasised. We should value life…invest in brands like emilinks.

    I and my family have lived in our house for over six years and we have not fully completed it till now., this is because we’ve had series of episodes of having to deal with substandard doors, Windows, bathroom and kitchen fittings. Because of this we have been reluctant to fully complete our house for fear of purchasing substandard house fittings again. But now, with the emergence of the #Emilinks brand our hope of living in a fully completed house is near. By this weekend we will Place orders and we’ll fit our house mostly with Emilinks products and by this Christmas our house will be fully completed.

    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!

    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.

    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 somewhere to explode.

    THE CONFESSION 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!

    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 .

    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.

    My uncle’s house is like heaven on Earth.When he was building it he ordered for the best quality doors from Emilinks, wardrobe, kitchen cabinet,bed frames etc all from Emilinks.He also called the best architects. Hard work really pays. Me and my siblings always run down to his house whenever we are putting on a good attire in order to have a nice snap shot.The house is so solid that I think it will stay beautiful forever. A good house is beautiful, solid and safe.The last touch to a good house is an Emilinks door

    flooded with travails
    Looked down the nose by all and sundry
    Her place undefined in world sphere

    She struggles to keep vices out of her door
    A rickety door,of substandard material
    Battered by 56 years of tribulation

    Her borders came crashing down
    Like a door without hinges
    Ushering in economic burglars,who inject her system with counterfeit products, a harbinger of unemployment.

    Now the sun has risen
    From her own bosom, a son has risen
    Shinning bright like the rays of an halo
    Strengthening the nexus that links every fibre of our unity as a country.

    Building up the strength of our resistance to intruders,the strength you will only find in emilinks doors.
    Fortifying our economy with the steel of employment
    A door that leads to everlasting prosperity.

    A home is where you come back to, to rejuvenate and relax after the days work. A home resets your brain after all the stress of work and school. My home is my safe zone, its my all in all. What would i be without shelter, i would be vulnerable to the dangers of this world.My home provides me with everything i need to excel in life.My home is built with emilinks doors,roofs,kitchen beds etc.
    A lot of nigerians like to compromise, because they want to save money,which is understandable because of the economy.Nevertheless,a house is a very important place and must be treated with care
    After the rain that fell recently,it was shocking to hear that the hostel building beside my house collapsed,7 students injured and are currently in critical condition. It is very sad and disheartening. I remember when that school was building the hostel, my dad warned them not to use substandard materials because he is a civil engineer, but they didn’t listen unlike my own school, which was contracted to my dad to build. He used #emilinks materials to build the interior and exterior of my school hostel and my house. After the heavy downpour. Not a single scratch on our building. It was like it did not even rain.The answer to this problem is not far,its #emilinks.The main point is when you use standard materials, like #emilinks to build your homes, schools etc you are free from high blood pressure, fears and worries.#emilinks sets the standard.#worldclass

    My mother has always told me never to judge a book by its cover, since the treasures associated with a particular item are almost always hidden on the inside, but how can you not judge a house with bad doors? Is it even possible for a house, or a building to have bad doors (either on the interior or exterior) and serve a functional purpose?
    Take a hospital for instance: brightly-coloured, safe-looking doors make the patients feel safe and secure. This is important because physical healing comes after emotional and psychological healing.
    In schools, the doors in the classes give the students a sense of closeness, which helps bonding with teachers and fellow students, and also facilitates learning. In the student hostels and dormitories, the doors provide compartmentalization for the various students’ quarters, and also provides security for the students.
    Also, Nigeria is a very religious country, hence the overwhelming presence of churches and mosques. The doors to these places of worship disconnect them from the outside world, giving a sense of holiness and sacredness.
    The importance of doors in office blocks cannot be over-emphasized, because they provide security, compartmentalization, safe-keeping, etc., in addition to branding of the company/companies in the building.
    Lastly, as a serial entrepreneur, I have come to learn that branding matters a lot in getting and keeping customers for a business or company. Doors into an establishment give the impression and brief summary of what a company stand for, kind of like a mission statement.

    The switch in story made me remember this funny incidence while I was one of the workers erecting a building in a govt housing area in imo state. We were erecting a building for a very powerful politician under the supervision of a contractor which a Nigerian will term as ” I too know”. The owner being a very powerful politician, was not a very patient person. He wanted a duplex erected withing one month and this called for very high quality materials which our supervisor did not take time to put into consideration. Withing a few weeks, the building was finished as we had to work night and day, some ufittings like lampholder, curtains, etc have also been put in place and our last job was to lay interlocking stones on the surrounding compound. The need for interlocking called for a well leveled and compacted ground surface and without wasting much time our supervisor decided to introduce a contractor. When he mention that, I looked at his big shiny head on which he always hung his glasses but I dint know how to tell him he was making a mistake considering the kind of materials that were used. In no time the compactor arrived and had begun compacting and just then, there was a very large visible line from the top to the bottom of the finely painted building and with each second, the line grew bigger into a gap and hence the building was split into two. I looked at the supervisors head again and I dint find the glasses again, they were now in his hands. “Had I known always come at last” they say but not when you hconsider Emilinks first. Guess my supervisor will learn the importance of using quality materials in his jail room. Collapsing of buildings won’t be heard of if quality materials are used especially from Emilinks

    I’m blessed with a God who understands the reason why homes should be of Standard. See how he made the earth to be a wonderful place for us all. Then he blessed me with a man of standard – my dearest husband, who even before we got married has been building a home for us and with standard materials(which of course I was a good helper to ensuring they’re all standard).

    But then, something people don’t really understand is that when we talk about quality and standard of a building, it comprises of everything. It includes not only the exterior but the interior. And the latter was where my darling husband faltered. He trusted a friend of his whom he wanted to help out financially by giving him the contract for the lighting and fittings of the house. The lamp holders were so bad that during testing, alot of them got burnt almost instantaneously. We were happy about the outcome cos it aided us to know the faulty ones and changed them. It’s been a few months since we parked in and everything has been fine so far. I wonder what would have happened if we hadn’t seen it on time. Who knows, God forbid, we go out someday and come back seeing our new home razed down.

    The need for people in the society to not just use, but to keep on using standard exterior and interior materials for every building can not be over-emphasized. Lives and properties worth millions are being lost due to substandard materials used in and out of buildings. The time to act is now.

    SAY NO TO SUBSTANDARD BUILDING MATERIALS.

    SAVE LIVES & PROPERTY.

    My boyfriend might be very annoying sometimes, but when it comes to making smart, sensible decisions I just have to doff my hat out for him. I’ll tell you why. When we first got into school four years ago we searched all around Yaba and environs for a befitting accommodation, since none of us was interested in staying in the school-provided accommodations.
    One thing I learned from him during our search is that the doors in a building or home determine the comfort ability, functionality, and habitability of the house. I have seen houses with bad doors and doors with questionable strength and durability, and as a sixth sense I concluded that such houses pose a threat to the people living in them.
    We eventually found a befitting apartment after several long weeks of intense search, but I have to say the stress was worth it because we found the perfect apartment as regards security, privacy, functionality.
    And guess what? All the doors used for the building are all Emilinks doors.

    This reminds me of a couple of years ago when I decided to seek refuge in an uncompleted building on a rainy day.The building was meant to be a branch of a popular eatery in my town.Staying there turned out to be a bad decision as I still ended up getting drenched.The roof leaked terribly&made horrible noises as the rain fell heavily.My heart beat increased alarmingly anytime winds blew,as it seemed the building would collapse.A few days later,my fears were confirmed.It actually collapsed and few construction workers were injured&hospitalized.Imagine how much was lost in terms of time,money&human resources.They had to start all over as their other competitors were already making money and becoming more popular.A wise person must have advised them to use Emi links products because now the building has been completed&i was particularly delighted to see that they used Emilinks for their doors&cabinets.The building is now completed&they are back in business.Choose wisely,choose Emilinks.You will always get your money’s worth!

    I came across this page while surfing for normal gist and gossip and the topic took me down memory lane of the many experiences I had as a boarder during my secondary school days which is linked to substandard building materials used to erect buildings. Rainy season was normally hectic for us. The roofing of our hostels were obviously done using cheap and substandard materials which I think was done in order to minimize cost because they looked frail and worn out and it was as if someone had perforated it at several points.whenever it rains, the room gets flooded and those in the down bunk will carry their foams to the up bunk whereas we get to pack our buckets, rubber cans, cupboards and other properties on the now empty down bunks..na there u go know the meaning of division of labour because while it is the work of others to do the above mentioned, others will be scooping and sweeping water out of the room. Even wen it’s nt raining and the sun is out, u get to see sun rays as they Penetrate through the holes on the roof. D doors were mostly weak wooden doors that can easily be broken with just one kick except for one hostel that had iron door. Because it was an all girls school located near a community, we were always attacked by man loafs(slang for rapists) and the then speculated “Bush baby” which of course I never saw throughout my stay.we would all pick race during night class at the shout of “man loaf! man loaf oo! Or chineke! See Bush baby! straight to the hostel and everyone will enter that particular hostel with the iron door. Imagine over 500 students staying in a small room meant for 30 people. Chai!, see sweat na running like an open tap on people’s body,but we wouldn’t mind, who wants to be raped at that tender age or be visited by Bush baby or madam koikoi(a sister to Bush baby)? Tufia kwa! The poor roofing and doors were hampering our comfortability and we were finding it difficult to read and concentrate on our studies..we were using time meant for revising and reading the subjects taught to sweep out water during rainy season and run for our dear lives virtually every night to settle and suffocate in one room because even the windows will be shut so that there will be no way the man loaf can come in.. This happened from my jss1 to ss2.we couldn’t take it so we did a peaceful protest because each time we complained, the staff being products of the school will say it’s school life and that they went through it.. our set headgirl finally joined the staff meeting and suggested emilinks products to them as she is a witness to their product’s durability and efficiency. Thanks to emilinks, I enjoyed my last year in school in secondary school and I smashed my watch..

    I won’t forget a day in my secondary school days, we were all in class listening to the teacher while he taught us, the doors and windows were shut due the rain falling outside, the class was quiet in other to hear what the man was saying, suddenly we heard a great noise and the class became bright, everybody ran to no no where, it was the wind that blew off our zinc, our teacher ran back to the staff room, while we the students shared ourselves into different classes, some of us got really wet while others got their books soaked. Thank God no one was injured but it was a lesson to the school as most parents withdrew their children, the next week, they had to renovate the whole school, this time they paid more attention to quality products as most of the materials they used were all Emilikns products, after the whole renovation our school was looking brand new and became the talk of the town, but it didn’t bring back those who had left, the new look the school wore all made us want to go to school everyday, some of us were grateful for the wind but that new good look was as a result of a touch from quality products from Emilinks. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day 23

    The place where I live is a new area, new houses spring up almost every week, and as a result of that there are many uncompleted buildings in the area. Most times area boys use these uncompleted buildings as their hide out, either to smoke weed or to do all sorts of evil, I stay in Jos the plateau state capital, which makes the place I stay very rocky, and so it is a normal thing to blast rock when digging a well in search of water.
    On this day, the area boys were inside a particular uncompleted building as usual, I guess they chose the building cos it gave them good shelter as the building was roofed, a close compound decided to blast rock underground, as soon as it happened the vibration sent shock waves to the buildings nearby including ours, some had a crack, but that particular one they were in came crashing down with them inside it, it was a tragedy as three of them died while the rest sustained serious injuries, our house stood and not even a crack was found and that’s because much emphasis was laid on using quality products from Emilikns during the building process, if only the contractor had known he wouldn’t have wasted his time, he just killed three innocent lives for nothing, and now he’s being charged to court, building with substandard products is being penny wise pound foolish so go for Emilinks quality products. #Emilinks #MyDoorStory #Day 23

    An essential necessity in any mans life, right through the foundation till the completement, a building with quality assurance is a life without stress and worries.

    Many Cases of collapse buildings have no other severe or cogent reasons than the use of fake, perhaps substandard materials.

    Sadly, buildings ranging from hotel to residential often built either with substandard roofing sheet or door will practically affect any occupant negatively, loss of property due to rain, easy break down or doors by trespassers. Emilinks not being the order of the day is a luxury spent in distress.

    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”. From external (outside view probably because of the attractive painting, the structure really looks okay and I felt that must have lured my father to go ahead and rent. Meanwhile, we were the very first occupants, thus the worrisome experiences – I, my parents and siblings had, was uncalled for and incredible. 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. She wept so bitterly. The railing used for corridor rails, the metal door, kitchen sink and bath tubs all of a sudden became rusty and started disintegrating in particles. My parents warned and barred us from playing at the corridor for fear and risk of leaning against the railings, it breaks and we fall 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 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.
    When he took me along to examine the new house, I 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 winks and stated I am a correct landlord. They were all looking superb and of great quality. We felt so satisfied, moved in and hard a very happy home experience and never encountered qualms at all over years. Equally mum stated that a former neighbour she met at the market equally told her that they’ve packed out from the former house.
    Till today including we including co-tenants do call the owner “oga correct landlord” and 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!!!

    Day 23
    Last semester was the craziest for me, it was dry season again and the doors wouldn’t completely shut again. Well it would if I assisted with folded paper, *Lols*. I lived on the topmost floor and the cold was much, my door made it worse even because even as it was closed heavy breeze would still find its way through the visibly cracked parts.
    One day, one of my neighbors had her door changed and I thought it wise to do same, at least even if it lasts for a year till I change again. So I took the address from her and it read Emilinks, cool, I haven’t heard of them so decided to give them a try.
    Two days later there was an invasion *Soldier ants* I heard noises from many rooms but couldn’t quite figure what was wrong. Well I found it hard to understand how those things climbed all the way to the last floor, and in search of what? I asked. There was spilled red oil in my along the passage of our floor right in front of my room, oh my! And I had earlier pour some red oil out in a plate without covering it. Glory to God I was exempted from this hazardous raid. Thanks to that Emilinks door, I have been here for four and a half years now and my door still *standa kakara*, come rain come sunshine…..
