Home Improvement Tip

Summer is when you want to think winter. What do you need to do now so that your home is not exposed to the elements when it’s cold and wet and muddy?  Obvious things might be replacing windows, exterior painting or roof repairs; but also think about anything that might require opening up an exterior wall – maybe as part of a remodel or even adding or replacing insulaltion. Even projects such as new carpet or wood floors are better done when mud won’t be tracked across them. Plan now and you’ll be glad you did.   Email your tips to:
