Welcome to Construction MagNet, the online home of Rural Builder, Metal Roofing Magazine, Frame Building News, and more! Since this site has so much to offer and is so different from the previous magazine websites, we wanted to take a minute to show you around.
Since you likely found this page by clicking a link on the homepage, we aren’t going to tell you how to get to the homepage. But we do want you to take notice of a few features you may have missed when you visited there.
On the left side of the page is a newsletter signup box. Make sure you sign up to receive the Builder Express and Roofer Express email newsletters if you don’t already get them.
To the immediate right of the newsletter signup is a slide show of the most recent issues of the magazines, as well as a featured story. Simply click the link on the slide if one of the stories or magazines catches you eye. If you catch a glimpse of a slide and want to see that slide again, just click the corresponding magazine name link at the top of the slides to go back and hold the animation on that slide.
The horizontal navigation bar is the primary means of navigation through the site. You can get to everything on the site from here.
From the nav bar, you can view Current Issues, Articles, Blogs, Buyer’s Guides and Other Publications.
From the Current Issues page, you can find information on the most current issues of Rural Builder, Metal Roofing Magazine, Frame Building News and Gutter Opportunities.
Click either the name of the magazine directly undert the nav bar or the image of the magazine in the body of the page to be taken to a page devoted to the current issue of that magazine.

Oh, yeah, we also have a footer menu with all the standard footer menu stuff.
We did decide to spice things up a bit by throwing in some extras under the footer menu. You can find links to the organizations we are affiliated with or member of. And because the powers that be said we should, we included a link to our corporate website and careers page.
