Home Exterior Storm Remodel

We've got nothing against the insurance industry, but it's no secret that some insurance companies are difficult to deal with when seemingly-covered losses occur.
Homeowners can be at a disadvantage when losses happen because most of us don't spend all day surrounded by insurance jargon. Additionally, catastrophic events can be disorienting and the primary concern is usually the safety of one's own family, with securing fair treatment from insurance companies coming in a distant second.
That's why it's important for homeowners to find an ally in the claims process. One of the first calls you should make after storm damage occurs is to a reputable, local contractor that specializes in insur ...

Upstairs neighbors are the worst. They're the faceless monster that takes joy in creating creaks and thumps. They're the ne'er-do-well that seems to coordinate their furniture moving schedule with your sleep schedule. They're the villain of apartment living.
I have a confession to make. I am the upstairs neighbor. I just might be your upstairs neighbor.

Dear Downstairs Neighbor,
I am an adult human being that weighs more than 100 pounds, and if your griping is to be believed, your ceiling/my floor is composed of cardboard imbued with special powers to make it whatever the opposite of noise-cancelling is. Sadly, I don't mo ...

Why You Should Do An Annual Roof Insp...

Owner, Franciscus Roofing
When people count their blessings, having a roof over their heads is typically at the top of the list. But do you give your roof the care and attention it deserves?
To make sure you get the full life out of your roof—the average lifespan of an asphalt roof is about 15 years—preventive maintenance is key. It’s generally recommended for homeowners to inspect their roof about once a year, or in the aftermath of high winds or storms.
If water gets into the home through a damaged area, the cost of fixing a roof skyrockets. Why not make a seasonal habit and just put it on the calendar, maybe on the first day of summer, as a great wa ...

Are Ugly Black Streaks Ruining Your R...

By Jaime Johnson
Owner, Perfect Home Restoration
The beautiful appearance of your roof can be quickly ruined by black streaks and stains caused by an obnoxious algae called gloeocapsa magma.

That can result in the premature deterioration of your expensive roof.
When they first attach themselves to your roof, the algae may be difficult to detect. They will have a faint bluish green hue. At that stage, they are relatively harmless. However, as they multiply, they develop a dark, hardened outer coating, w ...

For those special people in your life who are new homeowners, the gift-giving ideas are seemingly endless. To help narrow things down, here are some ideas to consider when shopping for housewarming holiday gifts.
Paint
Even when buying a brand new home, many folks decide to change paint colors. As such, you can never go wrong with a gift card to a local paint store.
