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 Have you ever looked around your home to assess what may be outdated or inefficient? Windows showcase the beauty of the outdoors without allowing in the heat, cold, elements, or unwanted guests. They help to create spaces for you to be comfortable and embrace nature from the inside. We can even leave them open during certain times of the year to let in a nice breeze. We can paint, read a book, or simply relax by the window to appreciate nature. Although, none of these activities may be possible if the windows are damaged or dated. Replacement of the windows in your home may be essential to prevent energy inefficiencies, maintain home value, and offer protection from the elements or burglaries. But how can you te

How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Spaces Without Mosquitoes

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. To protect your loved ones or guests, you might break out the citronella candles, mosquito zappers, bug spray, and swatters. 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

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. 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

Decorating for Summer

We at Four Seasons wanted to provide you with the hottest trends this summer, from decorations to foods and even ways to spend your free time. Now that it is officially past June 20th and the start of summer, let’s get decorating! We are going to start with some tips for home decor that would be the perfect touch in your sunroom , patio room , LifeRoom , or any other addition inside or outside the home throughout the next few months.  The color of this summer is, drum roll please… blue. Any shade of this beautiful hue that represents the ocean and the sky is recommended for paints and decorations this summer. Pops of bright blue in more neutral spaces lighten up the room and also tie in current trends, like making a statement with an accent color in a more toned-down room. This brings us to another trend of summer 2021: minimalism and neutrality. Keeping spaces open with colors like ivory, beige, and pale gray give the opportunity for you to play around with space and continue to cha

We all have that one shirt that we use for any occasion and with any accessories. Whether you are going to a formal event, out for dinner with friends, or have a chill day with your family, this one shirt seems to fit every social event perfectly.

How to Make your Sunroom COVID Safe

  Smiles are powerful. Seeing someone's facial expression, and pearly white teeth staring squarely at you, can help people feel more comfortable socializing. However, since last winter, the privilege of seeing smiling faces has unfortunately been taken away. We have consequently all been forced to adjust our living styles. Our sense of what was always “normal” no longer exists. In this world we live in, we cannot read facial expressions, we cannot see pearly white teeth, and we cannot give the present of smiling back to anyone.  We understand the power of a smile at Four Seasons, and realize that COVID-19 has certainly turned our world gloomy; however, some good has of course come out of these unforeseen circumstances. The ability to disconnect from the hustle and bustle and take time to appreciate one's family has been one of the bright spots since the start of the pandemic. What better way to enjoy the company of your family than with a sunroom, which can help you and your

Just like your children, your sunroom deserves the best and most affordable clothing and accessories (or furniture and decor). Here are our top suggestions to make your space perfect for the whole family and the showstopper you have always dreamed of.  Your sunroom is uniquely yours.

Turning your Sunroom into a Greenhouse

Four Season’s sunrooms offer endless opportunities to design and customize. And the perfect touch could be to add an interior garden to your sunroom. Sheltered from the elements and situated in the sunlight, sunrooms are ideal for growing plants.  You may be asking, “ What kind of plants can I grow in my sunroom? ” Plants that need lots of sunlight are ideal, as your sunroom feeds off of direct rays all day. Conveniently, plants that thrive in an indoor garden are plants that would not usually do as well outside due to the harshness of the weather. This way, if you are interested in gardening, you can grow a wide variety of plants inside and outside your sunroom. Additionally, sunroom gardens require less maintenance, and can be kept all year round. This is the perfect opportunity to grow something you always wished you could with the proper conditions.  The following plants, herbs, and flowers are recommended for sunroom gardens: Mint, Rosemary, Citrus plants, Hibiscus, Peace lily

Preparing your Home for Spring

At Four Seasons we view the home as a palace… but we are all guilty of slacking on some of our home duties. Be honest with yourself: when was the last time you cleaned the gutters? Replaced the air filters? Tested the smoke alarms? We understand life is busy, and time is limited. Our daily nonstop routines leave us little opportunity to address these needs. However, as spring is approaching and the weather is getting warmer, we must stop neglecting these chores. If you take some time to get your home ready for spring now, it will be clean and ready to withstand the summer heat and rain storms. Below are 12 recommendations of different maintenance techniques and tips to prepare your house for the new season.    Clean the Gutters For this activity, you may need to get your hands dirty, so don’t forget to wear gloves! Grab a ladder and check your gutters for debris. Use your hands first to scoop out anything that has accumulated over the fall and winter. If necessary, use a garden hos

Protect your Vehicles with a Four Seasons Carport!

New York certainly has instances of inclement weather. I guarantee that every new yorker can think of a specific instance where they have been stuck inside due to a snowstorm or hurricane. Despite these rare extraordinary circumstances, New York’s beautiful summer weather lends itself to an opportunity to have fun outdoors with your friends and family (or in your sunroom). However, while you are enjoying your day sitting at the beach or by the pool, it is important to take care of what helps you get to your destination. Just like the rain, snow, strong winds, and sun can do damage to our emotions and our homes, they have an equal or even greater impact on our vehicles. Adding a carport to your home is a cost-effective way to protect your vehicles from damage or a depreciation of value. Carports are valuable for a plethora of reasons, but here are just a few that display why we believe they are crucial to your vehicle’s health.    The sun and heat, as well as heavy rains and hurricane

Sunroom Tips to Lighten up your Home

It’s that time of year again to welcome in the spring. The sun is finally shining after months of darkness and a landscape covered in snow. It is hard to resist opening up the windows and peeking outside at nature. However, we understand the struggle of having hard to reach windows that do nothing more than show you a superior view of the street or driveway.  Additionally, it is interesting to note that the weather has an influence on how we feel. On a sunny day, individuals are more likely to feel energized, full of joy, and prepared to face the obstacles ahead of them. The rain, snow, and freezing cold make us feel lazier or less determined to take on various tasks. This is where we come in. If you are just staring at the pavement all day, or locked inside in your dark and dreary home, it is unlikely that you will have the motivation to be your best self at that moment.  Therefore, the first answer to your craving to bask in the sunlight and conquer the day is a Four Seasons sunr

Smart Lighting Options for Safer Homes

Sometimes spending time outdoors can be so enjoyable that you don’t want to go back inside after the sun goes down! It is important to install lighting so that you can keep the party going without worrying about the sunset. Lights can illuminate the mood and keep you safe from any unexpected threats in the dark. Try some of these exciting options to ensure that your time outside stays “lit”. String Lighting String lights are an immensely popular option for outdoor lighting. They come in a large variety of colors and designs to provide a warm and intimate light. Be sure to purchase lights that are safe to use outdoors and have enough string to cover the desired area. You can simply let them hang above you or wrap them around trees for a festive glow. Deck Lighting A more professional option is to get lights directly installed into your deck. They are completely safe because they are integrated into the deck and it is easy to get around without tripping since there are no grooves
