Home Improvement Tips

The lowest price isn’t always the best deal!

Little things can make a big difference, and a good contractor or well-educated homeowner uses the right materials for the job. A few examples:

  • Better quality paints provide better coverage and last longer
  • Nails are more ductile for load-bearing, while screws have superior grip strength. If you are doing an exterior job, you want ones that are rust-resistant. And seriously, one size does NOT fit all!
  • Wood comes in a variety of grades – both softwoods and hardwoods. They are graded on grain direction, grain density, and defects, all of which affect the wood’s strength and appearance. Lowes has a good buying guide.

Responsible Contractors’ list is growing all the time. This month we welcome:

Matvey Construction, Inc. provides structural and foundation repair. Matvey’s team members are certified structural engineer experts who continue to win customers with their superior service.

Thank you for the outstanding service you provided when we needed it the most.  Our decision was made to move forward with the repairs and you put us at ease through the entire process. We witnessed some of the hardest working people ever on your crew. They were always on time and showed incredible team work. You and your company went above and beyond our expectations when it was determined that our situation was worse than anyone could have known. You saved us from losing our home and kept the project within our budget, which was so greatly appreciated.” ~ Jeff and Tina – Puyallup, WA

Clean Crawls is our newest Insulation Contractor, wowing customers with their service:

“They provided great customer service and workmanship when weatherizing my home under the Puget Sound Energy incentive program. I had very little attic insulation and no floor insulation in the house. I had Clean Crawl install additional insulation to the attic, new floor insulation, wrap and seal the heat ducts, wrap the water pipes and place a new vapor barrier. WOW what a difference this has made. My hat is off to Clean Crawls, it’s refreshing to work with a company that delivers what they promised!” – Dave in Edmonds, WA
