Summer Projects

Summer is Here!

Gettin’ Hot Yet? I have your summer project ideas right here to keep you cool inside and let me do the sweatin’!

I have had lots of calls for window air conditioning units.  It’s a great way to cool a particular room that is warmer than others during the summer, or cool a larger portion of your house if you don’t have a central AC unit.  There are so many to choose from, so let me help you figure out which size you need for the square footage you need to cool. And contrary to popular belief, many window AC units these days aren’t as energy sucking as they used to be. In fact, most of the ones I’ve installed have actually been Energy Star certified! They are also quite reasonably priced.

Don’t fight the summer heat – stay cool and comfortable! I’ll be glad to give you a same day quote when you call or email me.

 

It’s also that time of year to be spending plenty of time outside with friends and family.  Is your deck ready for the traffic? Are there lots of splinters and it hasn’t seen any stain or sealer in years? Let’s do it! I’ve got several planned to completely re-sand, re-stain and re-seal.  And it’s much cheaper to do some maintenance on it now than to have to tear it all out and redo it!   We can also power wash and re-stain if you prefer.

And don’t forget about the structural stability! Let us check our your loose, creaky or warped boards to make sure no one gets hurt while enjoying the summer on your deck. We can also fix your warped handrails and top rails.

Did you clean your gutters earlier in the spring? Have you noticed them running over or worse – water damage on your soffits? Let me get up there and get that flowing correctly to reduce the chances of damage to your home. We can even install some protective barriers over the gutters to greatly reduce the amount of debris that builds up year-round.  Already have damage? Let me come assess what needs to be replaced and repaired to keep it from getting worse!

One last idea to make your house look great this summer: Spiff up your front door!  I will take the door off, give it a good scrubbing with soap and water, sand as needed, and put a fresh coat of paint on it. It’s amazing how inviting a good looking front door can be to your friends and family! We can touch-up the paint around the trim and jamb too so it will look like you have a brand new front door!

Of course this is only a few ideas to get you thinking about what you need around the house this summer. Check out my (almost) all-inclusive list of services we provide, and of course the new “Remodel Ideas” page. There will be more added soon, so add your email address at the top of the page and stay apprised of specials and new additions!  Thanks for reading and enjoy your summer!!

Spring Fever?

Spring Fever?  We all have it!  After so many days of snow, ice, cold & wind makes all of us ready to see the sun and break out the t-shirts and shorts.  Since spring is such a fun time of year to watch everything turn green again, we have some suggestions for you to get some things done outside so your house looks great, and you can move on to bigger and better things!

Ready to get started!?  Let’s do it!  Contact us and we’ll get it done.

I have a feeling since the last part of winter was a little milder, we’re going to see warmer weather sooner and last longer this year. Although it’s not at the top of your list at the minute, NOW is the time to buy window and portable air conditioning units!  Because as we all know if you walk into Home Depot in mid-July, you’re very unlikely to find a window air unit you want.  Of if there are any left, it’s top of the line and way more money than you wanted to pay.  My supplier has just put ALL OF THEIR UNITS on sale.  Here’s what I can get, and some I can even beat Home Depot’s prices:

  • LG Window Air Conditioners,

  • LG Window Combo Heat/Air Conditioners,

and a new brand (actually made by Haier)

  • “Commercial Cool” Window Air or Combo Units

  • Commercial Cool Portable Air or Combo Units also!

  • And now in 2014 I can get Frigidaire Window Air or Combo Units

I am really psyched about the new options with the window units.  Last year I installed a few for people, and while they were happy about being cool in the summer, they weren’t too thrilled about the unit just having to sit unused during the winter. But now with these combo units, you can use them year-round! (And even though they’re named “Commercial Cool”, they’re for residential use).    I can get some larger units as well for 240V if you have a larger shop or garage to cool.    But let me explain this to you:

NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY A WINDOW A/C IF YOU WANT THE BEST PRICING AND AVAILABILITY!

Some units start as low as $149! I have special brackets to use, even if you’re on a second or third story building, and will ensure your window unit is safe and water-proof no matter what style of window you have.

Send us the size of the room you want to cool (e.g. 10′ x 10′) and I’ll tell you what size of unit you need. Then add if you want one with the heat option too, and we’ll be over to get it in fast, efficient, and at the best price of the entire year!

Also, don’t forget to have us come clean out your gutters if you didn’t get it done this fall. The spring rains will be a-comin, and it’ll be a disaster if the gutters are full.  We have already had one call from a customer that gutter has a leak and has been peeling the paint from his house. We can fix those problems too!  Too much moisture leads to bugs, mosquitos, and even termites. Protect your home and your investment and let’s remediate any issues you have.

So get your list together of all the things that have needed to be done over the winter, hit the “contact” button at the top of the page, and tell us what you’ve got! We’ll make sure to get those projects done for you so you’ll have more free time to enjoy the spring weather! 

Have a great Spring….
