Transterior Rejuvination: Your Outdoor Sanctuary

Have you ever screamed, “I need some peace and quiet!”? It’s not surprising—most of us deal with traffic, people, and endless noise. We seldom take breaks from life’s daily newsfeed from smartphones, television, and billboards. We have less time to reflect on anything because of constant demands needing attention. Studies indicate that the mass of incoming information erodes productivity, creativity, and the ability to focus. Our minds are tired! The brain is just like any other biological tissue; it can be overused and can suffer from fatigue. What can we do to cope with the effects of daily visual and auditory assaults on our well-being? Humans as well as other animals modify their environment to adapt to changing needs. As a result, the “Transterior Rejuvenation” trend is emerging from the need to recharge our brains. But […]

Dam that Ice! Prepare to Rake your Roof

Following a storm, clearing walkways are important, but removing snow and icicles from roofs also should be a part of your routine. Why? Ice dams! They’re thick ridges can form of solid ice that build-up along the eaves (the roof’s edge). You may notice a bulging area under a layer of snow above a group of icicles. If you remove the snow buildup, you’ll see an ice ridge known as an ice dam. How Ice Dams Form Warm areas of an attic cause snow to melt from the roof even when the outside temperatures are below freezing.

It’s that stormy time of year when those smooth-talking creeps creep up to your door with promises to quickly repair your storm-damaged home. Most people think they are too smart to fall for a scam from a con artist.
