MiTek Builder Products

Connectors cost you more every year! Stricter code requirements continue to make structural connectors a more costly component of building. Recent hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes have caused building code agencies to re-evaluate their connector requirements. Now, more connectors are required than ever before.

You can save money… There is more than one structural connector company that provides a complete line of connectors, anchors, and epoxies. A single specification creates a non-competitive environment. That means you end up paying more for connectors – which drives up your costs of building.

The solution: Specify two connector brands or pre-approve a second brand as an “or equal” option. This still allows you to build high quality homes that meet or exceed the local code requirements.

MiTek Builder Products is the answer. Let our technical sales representatives and engineers meet with you and your engineer to prove that our products are qualified for specification and equal consideration. Once you see what we offer, you’ll want your engineer to add MiTek Builder Products to your building plans.

You will get a more competitive bid. Once MiTek Builder Products are added to your building plan, you’ve opened the door for competitive pricing. The bid process will keep your connector costs down, without further effort by you. So even if you continue to buy from your current source, you will be paying less. And here’s an extra fringe benefit: We can give a second opinion to your engineer, providing you with less expensive selections to meet your local code requirements.
