How Do I Know When It's Time for New Windows?

Seasonal changes may force homeowners to upgrade or repair elements of their homes. Fixing the roof, replacing the water heater, or installing new pipes are relatively common. While some replacements are obvious, others may not be top of mind unless a severe issue occurs. Have you ever looked around your home to assess what may be outdated or inefficient?

With the school year beginning and summer coming to an end, the time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family will be at night, when the hustle and bustle of the day begin to wane. However, with the setting sun, come droves of mosquitoes and never-ending bug bites.

You may then realize that these tools are ineffective, loud, or require your undivided attention.  Many people first turn to bug spray and candles. Even with copious amounts or extensive placement, most individuals still find themselves swatting and itching throughout the night. Zappers' loud crackles are disruptive, and swatters give you extra work to do.  Regardless of the method used to deter pests, location is significant. If possible, spend time on decks or patios. Grass tends to attract even more bugs than other surfaces. While positioning can help, your goal should be to prevent a

The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services. Among these was the home improvement industry. Americans allocated record levels of capital toward home improvements; a study by Harvard University researchers determined home improvement spending increased 3% during 2020. Housebound Americans found the
