We make estimates based on past experience and various other assumptions that are considered reasonable in this case.
These accounting policies are applied on a consistent basis, enabling us to provide timely and reliable financial information.
Our important accounting policies and estimates are more adequately described in Note 2-summary of important accounting policies in the notes to item 8 consolidated financial statements.
Our key accounting policies and estimates include the following: Accounts receivable are accounted for at the invoice amount and do not count interest.
Suspicious accounts allowance is the company\'s best estimate of the amount of credit losses that may occur in the company\'s existing accounts receivable;
However, changes in accounts receivable-related circumstances may result in the need for additional allowances in the future.

Show Year: 2017 compared with fiscal 2016, the annual consolidated sales as of December 31, 2017 fell from $44,025,000 in December 31, 2016 to $46,176,000, a decrease of $2,151,000, or 4. 7%.
This decrease includes a $2,702,000 decrease in sales in the construction supply segment, an increase in sales in the infection control segment of $520,000, and an increase in sales in the disposable protective clothing segment of $31,000, partially offsetting this increase.
The year ended December 31, 2017 decreased by $2,702,000, or 9.

, Partially offset by 8.
Sales grew by 2% per cent at housewrap and 38 per cent.
Sales of Other woven materials increased by 7%.
For the year ended December 31, 2017, the sales portfolio of the building supply sector was 50% on the ground floor of the synthetic roof, 41% on home packaging and 9% on other woven materials.
In contrast, for the year ended December 31, 2016, 51% of the ground floor of the synthetic roof, 41% of the House packaging, and 8% of other woven materials.
We believe that at the same time as reducing waste of site materials, each direction can better protect the building from various factors, simplify the installation to reduce the labor force, and allow to bring fewer products to the job site.
This new product is now competing for the home packaging market that has not been developed in history, and we expect it to provide us with significant growth opportunities in the future.

In addition, sales of another smaller private label dealer declined due to a change in strategy in 2016.
These two distributors accounted for about 75% of the total decline in the construction supply sector in 2017.
Despite the decline in sales in 2017, we believe that our synthetic roof base will be the driving force for growth in the coming year.
An increase of $31,000, or 0, for the year ended December 31, 2017.
