When we were speaking to some of Magnus’s customers, as part of the Unique Trusted Verification Process, we consistently heard amazing things. Read some of the real personal testimonials from recent customers below.  


“We got our basement spray foamed and I could not believe how accommodating Conrad was with scheduling the job for us. Cory and Lennie came out and did an awesome job of applying and cleaning up the house when they were finished. They had to come back to finish, they took their time and applied the foam properly. We had a couple of colder nights right after they finished, it was a good test of the insulation. The house is so much warmer. I would recommend Magnus construction for your spray foam job. The price was competitive and I read up on the product they used and I believe it is better than some competitors offer. Thank you!” -  Jim B., Saskatoon


I am a repeat customer from two years ago. We just had the guys in again and they were courteous, neat and did a fine job. I would definitely have the guys back again and will suggest them to family and friends looking for someone to supply their insulation needs!” - Ward S., Saskatoon


“Conrad/Magnus team was highly recommended to us by our realtor for the asbestos abatement and insulation of the attic. He explains thoroughly what they need to do and provides you some options to explore/consider. He understood my timeline and did their best to meet my deadline. I could say they did a wonderful job! Thank you to the whole team!” - John R.

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Body Experts at Superior Auto Body Discuss Replacing Cracked Windshields

Trusted Saskatoon Auto body Pros at Superior Auto Body in Saskatoon has been in business since 1961, and Superior Auto Body has been an SGI APPROVED Saskatoon Auto body shop since SGI started the program in 1982. There are many reasons they have so many loyal longstanding clients from all over the city, but mostly it is the small, personal touches that they offer to people who have been unfortunate enough to require their services. They offer newer model courtesy cars and vans for their clients... and they will also pick up your vehicle, take it to your SGI appointment for you, and deliver the courtesy car to you at home. In their latest Saskatoon Autobody and Collision Repair Tips article, they discuss the benefits of replacing your cracked windshield this fall, particularly before the cold temperatures hit. 

BENEFITS OF REPLACING YOUR CRACKED WINDSHIELD THIS FALL

Auto glass repairs on your vehicle such as windshield replacements can provide peace of mind to drivers particularly before those cold winter months hit. Investing in quality windshield repair is crucial in ensuring the structural integrity of your vehicle, and ultimately the safety of the driver and passengers.

SAFETY

The windshield of your vehicle is essential for both driver and passenger safety, which is always a priority. When you have a cracked windshield, the integrity of your vehicle is compromised and can create unsafe driving conditions. When your windshield is damaged there is a higher likelihood of the glass breaking should you find yourself in a collision or a situation where an object was to come in contact with your vehicle.

In the event of a rollover, a windshield can account for up to 30 percent of roof support. Therefore, a damaged windshield can compromise the roof of your vehicle and there is a higher likelihood that the roof may cave in, impacting the safety of the driver and passengers.

VISUAL CLARITY

Simply put, a chipped or cracked windshield impairs the driver’s ability to view the road ahead. Replacing your windshield eliminates obstructions due to cracks and chips, particularly if they are in your line of sight, and reduces the potential for accidents to occur.

DAMAGED WINDSHIELDS AND COLD WEATHER

If there are any existing damages to your windshield, extremely cold temperatures can negatively impact these damages further. Glass expands and contracts due to weather changes, as most materials do. Cold weather will cause your windshield to contract, and as a result, it will become more concave in shape. This is a stressful change for your windshield, and can result in cracks, chips, and may worsen other issues due to shifting. Many drivers find that as soon as cold temperatures hit, they find minor windshield cracks grow. That is why it is so important to replace or repair your windshield as soon as possible when you notice a crack. If you put windshield repair off for too long, a full replacement becomes your only option.

SEAL LOSS

The main concern, particularly in inclement weather, is a windshield losing its seal. When glass loses its seal, chips and cracks allow air and water to enter your vehicle. During those cold days, it is especially important to keep heat in the vehicle. Replacing your windshield ensures the cold air stays out, and the hot air stays in. 

Overall, it is essential to make sure your windshield damages are remedied before cold temperatures strike. Your windshield is an important part of your vehicle’s structural integrity.

Superior Auto Body installs windshields to meet all manufacturers' specifications for your safety. If you have a small crack in your vehicle’s glass – see them before it turns into a big problem. If you have a large crack and need your windshield repaired, their team can handle the full windshield replacement for you!


If you’ve been involved in a collision and are looking to restore your vehicle back to its original form, contact the team at Superior Auto Body Today.

Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment Store, Fitness Solutions Explain 6 Health Benefits of Strength Training

They are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen.

Fitness Solutions, Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Experts 

6 INCREDIBLE HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRENGTH TRAINING

The days are gone of strength training is only for professional athletes and bodybuilders. Strength training is for everyone! The benefits of strength training are undeniable, and lifting on the regular contributes to overall physical, mental, and emotional health. 

Here are 6 incredible health benefits of strength training: 

1. Strong Muscles

Strength training involves working your muscles against resistance (weights), which stimulates them to become stronger. As you train, your body becomes stronger and stronger which increases endurance and improves muscle efficiency.

2. Healthy Body Fat Levels

Strength training is more effective at regulating body fat than cardio. This is due to the fact that strength training exercises trigger excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). This temporary metabolic boost occurs due to the extra oxygen that is required to cool down and repair muscles following intense strength training. 

3. Mental & Emotional Health

Strength training increases levels of endorphins and endocannabinoids in the brain that can improve mental health. In addition, strength training supports brain health through increased levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).

4. Balance & Stability

As a person ages, balance and stability become increasingly important. Strength training improves balance and stability because it forces movement at all different angles working both major muscle groups as well as smaller ones that may not otherwise be stimulated.

5. Improved Posture

Staying in one position all day such as seated at a computer causes torso muscles to weaken, leading to poor posture. Lifting weights strengthens the core, back, and shoulder muscles needed to improve posture.

6. Strong Bones

Strength training is important in maintaining bone mass and density. When you contract your muscles using force through strength training, it creates a force on the bone which helps them stay strong. Over time, bones become stronger in order to endure these forces they experience.

Fitness Solutions has all the strength training equipment you need to improve your overall quality of life.


If you need help with your fitness goals, the team at Fitness Solutions is here to help you stay fit and healthy. They take the time to ask you questions and go through all the details to find the perfect equipment for you. When comparing price versus quality, Fitness Solutions Saskatoon is your trusted local place to shop for home fitness equipment.

10 IT Management Predictions From Trusted Saskatoon IT Pro’s at Burnt Orange Solutions

Gareth McKee and his Trusted Saskatoon IT team at Burnt Orange Solutions promise to have a one-hour response time for all your IT support needs. Honesty and respect are important to them. They pride themselves on ensuring their clients understand IT concerns by providing a straightforward and reliable solution with exceptional service. 

Burnt Orange Solutions are your Trusted Saskatoon IT Experts and in their latest Saskatoon IT expert tip, Gareth shares 10 predictions for the future of IT Management.  

10 PREDICTIONS FOR THE FUTURE OF IT MANAGEMENT

With today’s emerging digital business opportunities, IT management needs to be aligned with business strategy in order to be responsive and adaptable. In order to compete, businesses will need IT to provide strategic value to deliver innovative products and services.

Here are ten predictions for the future of IT management from Gareth, owner of Burnt Orange Solutions  :

1. Businesses will be reliant on cloud technology to remain viable.

In the future, 98 percent of business data will be stored in the cloud rather than traditional company data centers.

2. Everything-as-a-Service dynamic will take over. 

Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS) dynamic is superior because IT is managed as an ever-changing product that is highly conducive to innovation. Cloud computing models such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) models will become less popular.




 3.Risk management, cybersecurity, and remote work will be prioritized for businesses.

As a result of these priorities, IT networks will need to be optimized for resilience in order to support businesses with regard to these priorities.

4. China will likely be in the process of building the first 6G networks. 

Therefore, 5G wireless networks will have evolved to deliver high-bandwidth, low-latency connections to power advanced industrial internet of things (IoT).

5. Advanced edge computing will be prevalent. 

This will provide real-time local data processing which will enhance IoT systems and reduce traffic in the cloud network. Machines will be communicating and making decisions without human intervention, and mechanisms will exist that will fix problems on their own.

6. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will be common.

VR and AR will exist in many business environments including warehouses, as well as in employee training programs of various types.

7. Sources for analytics will diversify.

Having diverse sources to obtain analytics data will improve machine learning algorithms and make for stronger predictions to form better decision making.

8. Roles such as data entry, customer service, and manufacturing will become obsolete.

Advances in AI, robotics, and automation, improve productivity and efficiency for businesses. Jobs that do not even exist yet will fill any voids.

9. Network visibility and cybersecurity will be exponentially improved.

All network endpoints will be monitored from a single interface through unified endpoint management platforms.

10. GDPR-inspired federal data privacy laws will be enacted.

These laws will exist in most industrialized nations, and compliance with these laws will make data security management a top priority for every business.

As services become increasingly automated, the primary role of IT will shift in order to support business strategies. IT’s focus will be to integrate business systems, accelerate product development, and ultimately improve customer experience for businesses. Employees will have the ability to implement their own technology solutions through low-and no-code development platforms, so IT will need to be consultants in supporting businesses navigating their own IT functions.

We hope this article gave you some insight. If you want to ensure your business’s IT security, contact the Trusted Saskatoon IT professionals at Burnt Orange Solutions and we can take IT worries off your plate.

Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers at JOB Have Tips to Reduce Water Heater Expenses

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Saskatoon is eager to provide the best possible customer experience. Their aim is to be a professional resource for our clients before, during, and after the sale! Their team takes pride in service knowledge of modern equipment and training. They are recognized by peers and offer sales, service, training & installations for residential, and commercial Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing systems in Saskatoon and area. In their latest article on water heaters, they share tips on how to reduce water heater energy bill expenses.

Tips to Reduce Water Heater Energy Bill Expenses

Water heaters account for nearly 20% of the average home energy bill. In fact, the only appliance that costs more to run than your water heater is your furnace. If you are looking to cut costs on your energy bill, water heaters are worth paying special attention to. Learn tips to reduce your water heater energy bill expenses from the experts at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

1. Insulate your hot water heater tank and pipes.

If you have a hot water heater tank, ensure it is insulated. Not only does tank insulation prevent heat loss, but it also lowers the risk of fire in the home. The same goes for your hot water heater pipes. If the pipes are not insulated, your water heater has to work harder to heat water. In order to conserve heat energy, it is recommended that you insulate a minimum of 6 feet of piping.


2. Lower the thermostat temperature on your hot water heater. 

When your hot water heater comes from the manufacturer, chances are the thermostat will be set to 140 F (60 C). However, a thermostat setting of 120 F (48.88 C) is the hottest you should require. Having a lower thermostat temperature will reduce the risk of mineral buildup and will extend the overall life of your water heater.

3. If your hot water heater is older, be sure to add heat traps.

Heat traps are valves that trap heat energy that would otherwise be lost and can reduce your energy bill by up to $30 each month. Newer hot water heaters will come with heat traps already installed, so it is best to consider an upgraded unit rather than installing heat traps on your existing unit if your current hot water heater may be nearing the end of its life.

4. Use a timer on your hot water heater.

Traditional water heaters typically heat water all night long, which is very inefficient considering you do not use hot water at night. If you do not have a tankless water heater, installing a timer will give your water heater a rest and save you money.

5. Install low-flow faucets in your home.

Though this may seem like a bit of an investment, replacing your faucets with low-flow options can reduce annual hot water usage in your home by up to 60 percent. Installing low-flow faucets will ensure more money stays in your pocket.

6. Schedule maintenance service for your hot water heater.

Often, homeowners will maintain their own hot water heater tank, including draining and cleaning the unit themselves. This often leads to problems and ends up costing more money. It is best to let an experienced professional maintain your hot water heater. 

Let the experts at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning ensure your water heater is not costing you more than it should. Schedule your maintenance service today.
