Home Improvement Tips

 Now is the time to prepare your home for fall weather with these four tips:

  1. Check your heating system – replace filters and clean ducts
  2. Clean debris out of gutters and downspouts
  3. Seal off potential drafts by checking doors and windows; caulk and weather-strip
  4. Clear out the garage so you have a place for your cars, tools, and summer toys when the weather changes!

Featured Contractors


RCW Construction is based in Gig Harbor and serves homes throughout the surrounding counties with building, remodeling, repairing, and restoring their homes. They specialize in custom homes and expert renovations, providing quality service at a great value.

The Fullertons were impressed with RCW’s attention to service, Thank you for checking on us. That is very much appreciated. Most contractors you don’t hear from again after they are done with the work. Your forman is very talented and knows what he is doing. He knows how to make and do things right. They used materials wisely and were not wasteful. We were very impressed.”


Kanon Electric Inc. understands how sound electrical systems keep homes and businesses running safely and efficiently. Kanon’s electricians are trained in installations, upgrades, and repairs, and pledge quality service in a timely manner.

Roxanne P. recommends Kanon because, I had four different light fixtures to be installed in my project to update the canned lights in my house. Jim was very professional and knowledgeable. He showed respect for my home by protecting the floors and cleaning up. He did an excellent job of installing them. I would definitely recommend Kanon Electric for any electrical needs.”


Olympic Blinds are the window-covering specialists, who offer quality products that complement your home’s overall design. They offer a variety of blinds and shades that are generally priced lower than those found in home improvement stores.

Christine O. Gregoire, Governor of Washington, thanks Olympic: “Thank you for the work you did on my shutters and blinds at the Executive Mansion. The work is outstanding. The Sun Room is exactly what we hoped for: the Roman shades provided warmth to the room and the added color makes it a much more comfortable space for breakfast meetings, lunches and small dinners.”
