Fireplace Rejuvenation

If you’re thinking of painting your brick wall or fireplace, you’re in good company. It’s a popular, inexpensive way to give your home a great new look. One of the best ways to refresh a brick wall or fireplace is to paint it, but if a solid color brick doesn’t work for your style, an easy way to change it is to embrace the texture, depth, and dimension of the brick by enhancing a more rustic or aged look.​

Property Maintenance

When a potential renter first walks into a bare apartment or condo, one of the first things they notice is cleanliness and the color of the walls. Choosing the right color for a rental unit is more important than most people think. Painting the wall white is the most common go-to solution to give the appearance of space, but it can be limiting and boring.

Wallpapering

If you are thinking of wallpapering a room, you are not alone. People are rediscovering wallpaper and, it's making a comeback. Big and bolds have replaced the wallpaper that sat quietly in the background and, all bets are off. But before you start a wallpaper project, it's best to do a thorough inspection of the walls for anything that may cause a problem down the wall.

DECK CARE

Like many areas of our homes, your deck requires regular inspection to create peace of mind. Typically this is done when the season changes or if you are getting ready to repaint or stain. While most people do a quick inspection of the deck's finish, one of the more critical factors in determining whether your deck is safe is not outwardly visible.

GUTTER CLEANING

Cleaning your gutters and downspouts in the fall by flushing your drain system and on a regular schedule is important. Winters can be harsh on non-serviced gutters causing them to become clogged and waighted. Many people experience problems with water damage and ice damming during the winter and clogged gutters can loosen or tear from your roof causing costly repairs.

EFFECTS OF COLOR

Spring is a great time to let go of the old and make room for the new, and if you are looking for an affordable new, look no further than your walls. Colors have the power to lift our moods, warm our lives and soothe our souls by creating an environment using the colors that make us happy. Explore your color creativity and rejuvenate.

GETTING READY TO SELL?
