In the year 2013 Cotterman & Company will celebrate its 35th anniversary of roofing excellence.
Cotterman & Company has been a pioneer in the commercial roofing industry since 1978. Family-owned and operated for two generations, the company installed and warranted more than 30,000,000 square feet of roofing.

In the early years, the company had employed just a hand full of employees and serviced the Shelby/Auglaize County region. Currently, they have over 75 employees servicing the entire state of Ohio as well as eastern Indiana. The majority of their projects are located between Findlay, Dayton, and Columbus corridor.
The second generation Andy and Mike Cotterman acquired full ownership in 2009 from Max R. Cotterman, their father and founder. The company has continued substantial growth since the transaction. “We continue to operate under the core principles Max practiced. I believe this directly impacts our quality level of installations, which has lead to our success in the roofing industry. In addition to that, the hard work and dedication of the individual team members culminates, creating a winning recipe,” says Mike Cotterman.

The National Association of Credit Management’s economic report for February 2013 depicts a stalled economy. Political and economic concerns appear to weigh more heavily on the manufacturing sector, while data from the service sector shows progress.

Columbia, Maryland: February 28, 2013—The National Association of Credit Management’s (NACM’s) Credit Managers’ Index (CMI) for February is exactly the same as it was in December—54.9. This is just slightly better than it was in January when the index fell to 54.6.

For all intents and purposes, the readings suggest that the economy has stalled. The interesting movements are in the individual factors where there is actually some better news overall. The favorable factor index is up to just below where it was in November, at 59. This is a slight improvement from January, and the gains occurred in important factors.??Sales jumped, taking the reading back to last year’s levels.

Is it time to find elder care for your aging parent? PDF Print E-mail

For some, holiday gatherings deliver an unwanted gift: the realization that an aging relative is losing the ability to live independently. When far-flung families come together to celebrate, adult children can be alarmed to discover that mom is forgetting more than she used to, dad is leaving the house in disarray, or auntie is now trembling and shuffling when she walks. No wonder inquiries about elder care services, including nursing homes and assisted living, peak annually just after the winter holidays.

The time has come to begin looking into options for long-term care.

“It’s definitely something that we see every year,” said Amy Goyer, AARP’s family expert. “People start doing their homework right after the holidays.”
Goyer encourages families to avoid jumping to the conclusion that a residential institution like an assisted-living facility is necessary. “Some people have a knee-jerk reaction,” she said.

But a stack of unopened mail could be just a sign of holiday stress, she said, rather than a symptom of inability to care for oneself with proper support. If a loved one is having trouble paying his bills on time, he might just need someone to handle his finances. If he has trouble getting in and out of the bathtub, families should consider having a walk-in shower built; if he isn’t eating right, they should consider Meals on Wheels; if the house is messy, they could have a housekeeper visit every week.
