3 Reasons to Use Mosquito Screens on Your Deck

Many homeowners with the space available like to include an outdoor pool in the backyard. This makes sense since swimming is the fourth most popular activity in the United States.

How Florida Prepares for a Hurricane

One of the deadliest storms on the planet, hurricanes strike fear into people all across the south and eastern seaboards. There are certain states that receive the most hurricanes but wherever they strike, residents struggle with the flooding, winds, and tornadoes.

  • Insured losses from Hurricane Michael (2018) were estimated at $6.2 billion, with an estimated 150,000 insurance claims
  • Hurricane Andrew (1992) spawned 62 tornadoes, which can occur days after a hurricane’s landfall

When Was the Last Time You Updated a Room in Your Home?

Nothing like an impending weekend visit from Grammy and Papa to motivate you to get the house in shape. All of the spare time and energy has gone into the bathroom for the last month and somehow when one room is a mess it seems to explode into the rest of the house.
So far this weekend you cleaned up the 900 square foot basement that you had been avoiding since February, moved the shelves and folding table in the laundry room, and did the floors and emptied it of any spare laundry piles, cleaned both boys rooms with them. Mostly, you have been swapping out seasons for their clothes. The two most exciting things, however, are that you finally put all the boxed up stuff from the bathroom away into the cabinets and added some stick on wood panels in the laundry room. Hopefully you can also carpet clean the rugs in the entry and hall because they are still gross from the winter.
