In October of last year, Hanley-Wood, REMODELING's parent company, launched EL NUEVO CONSTRUCTOR, the only Spanish-language magazine in the construction industry bringing readers up-to-date information on topics of interest.

The editorial content of the magazine includes highlights from other Hanley-Wood publications, such as the JOURNAL OF LIGHT CONSTRUCTION, TOOLS OF THE TRADE, and CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION, as well as original content specifically developed for this audience. Each issue will include articles aimed at increasing readers' skills in general building and in the trades such as framing, roofing, drywall, painting, carpentry, masonry, and concrete work. Also included will be safety training articles, product installations, and tool reviews.

Hispanics make up 13.6% of the total population in the United States, and that number is expected to rise to over 20% by 2020.
