ProTradeCraft Sponsors

We know that the people who design and build the products that you use to design and build houses are some of the most knowledgeable about home building.

 

That's why we feature content from trusty manufacturers who carry the conversation about craftsmanship forward.

Sponsorship statement

We only accept sponsorship from product manufacturers that we respect. If they produce cruddy products, we decline their money. 

We only accept content that is useful to our readers. If it is marketing hype, we won't post it. If you think any of the sponsor content articles/videos are marketing hype, let me know. 

We are not like some tech bubble media company who borrows bazillions of dollars to make click bait and then figure out how to sell your identify to marketers. 

We launched in a shoestring, with quality content, and sold the idea to two great product manufacturers: Tapco Tools and Panasonic Ventilation. 

Since then, Bestbath, IKO Roofing, Sakrete, Zip System, AdvanTech, OSI, RHH Foams, and LP SmartSide have joined the ranks. 

ProTradeCraft is not a sinking ship like many paper-based magazines, and we are not a debt-loaded and desperate web startup, like so many swimming against the tech bubble. 

We are a couple of ex-carpenters who wanted to make something cool that would last. Please let us know what you think.
