If your vacation home, or even your primary residence, is on a lake, river, or ocean, you must enjoy spending time near or on the water or you wouldn’t have purchased the property. Whether you have a bass fishing boat or a luxury water cruiser, you probably have a boathouse to store it in. Are you happy with the appearance of your boathouse marine door? Or are you looking for an upgrade?
Power outages happen no matter where you might live. We’ve all experienced them before. There are few things as stressful – coming home to a house with no lights or waking up to the fact that you’ve overslept because with no power your alarm clock doesn’t work. And being without electricity has implications for just about every area of our lives, and that includes something as seemingly simple as getting out of the house.
Instead of stewing all day and complaining to your neighbors, you have two options: hire a professional cleaning company to make it go away; or roll up your sleeves and try to scrub off the graffiti yourself.
Even if you love the colors of autumn and the wintery season, you might feel a bit sad when the summer ends. Wouldn’t be great if you could make the warmer weather season a bit longer? You can when you opt to convert your carport into a multi-season living space! Here, you can spend time with family and friends or just savor a bit more natural light and a sense of being outdoors – even if it is chilly!
The floor of your garage gets quite a daily workout, meaning that it shows signs of wear long before other floors in your home. There are tire marks, oil stains from various types of equipment stored in the garage, bikes, sporting equipment…and that’s all before we even get to the dirt that your car tracks in!
Are you trying to figure out whether you really need to heat and insulate your garage, or if there are regulations that make you do it? There are some government entities that say the common walls or shared ceilings in an attached garage are required to have a specific R-value, but there are no requirements for the garage door and other walls. And if you have a detached garage, there aren’t any rules you have to follow at all.
It is not unreasonable to think that when we use our garage door opener the door should open and close properly. This is what typically happens day after day, as we use the garage door as our home’s main point of entry. It’s common practice even for our kids, once they arrive home from school or soccer practice, to use the garage door’s exterior keypad to get into the house.
