Now that the winter's gone and we're starting to see some sunshine, homeowners everywhere are eager to begin sprucing up their yards. Keep in mind that Spring is more than just about landscaping. Our last season brought rain, wind and even snow so it's important to inspect your home for signs of damage.

Preventative maintenance is much easier than corrective repairs--so don't delay! Consider the wood in your home that could have been affected by rain last winter. Look for cracks in your trim and around doors & windows or standing water in your crawl space. Remember, wood needs to be damp to decay so it's important to keep the moisture out in order to prevent it from rotting. �

Homeowner Tip
We all know it can sometimes be a little difficult to get the ball rolling on your long home improvement to-do list. That's why we recommend doing something very basic to start building your momentum: De-clutter!

As contractors, we know the importance of good housekeeping on the job-site. However, it's also important to consider the benefits and potential hazards of a cluttered garage at home. For instance, sheds, garages and storage rooms can easily become fire hazards when cluttered. Make sure you're properly storing household chemicals such as aerosol cans, cleaners and solvents away from gas powered tools and electrical devices which can produce heat or sparks if malfunctioning.

If you have any questions about your home project, please feel free to contact us!

All the best,
