Your one-stop-shop for everything home maintenance.
The last two months were really busy. Between preparing for the holidays, hosting get-togethers, and visiting friends and relatives, you probably didn't have a lot of time to think about home improvement projects.
New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and while those resolutions to be healthier are more important than ever, it’s just as critical to put your home’s “health” toward the top of that to-do list too.
Remember last year’s Thanksgiving celebration? If yours was like most others, it was a quiet, intimate dinner without the joy and laughter of past family events. More than ever, this year’s get-togethers promise to be bigger, louder, and more memorable.
If you're like most homeowners, your to-do list is constantly growing. The longer it gets, the harder it is to start working on those projects. The easiest way to start tackling your list is to make a plan.
If you're a homeowner, today's headlines are absolutely terrifying. When you hear that a "bomb cyclone" is headed your way, your first instinct might be to book the first flight out of town. There's no need to run. You can prepare your home now to survive a bomb cyclone and any other storms Mother Nature has in store.
Moving to a new home? It can be both exciting and exhausting. Cleaning, purging, and packing are soon to be part of your daily routine as well as an endless number of tasks that need to get done before the moving truck arrives.
While there are many things in life that we consider our most prized possessions, our home is our most valuable physical possession. Real estate is an excellent investment as it almost always provides a positive return.
Some things just seem to be inevitable: the need to file taxes, the release of another season of The Bachelor, the grime permanently trapped between the inner layers of glass of your oven door like it’s Fort Knox.
Teleconferencing and virtual meetings have become the go-to solution to staying connected to everyone from family members to coworkers. Programs and apps like Zoom, FaceTime, and Google Meet have allowed even the most tech-challenged among us to jump on the video conferencing wagon and join remote face-to-face sessions like a pro.
Your dishwasher is probably your favorite kitchen appliance. Not only does it save time and energy, it also keeps everything clean and sanitary. It might seem as if your machine is invincible, but after multiple uses, your "super" appliance can stop working as expected or break down altogether.
Ah, to be a kid again. Summer days were filled with playtime, beach time, and endless opportunities for fun. While it might be tempting to join in the fun and ignore your to-do list, tackling some of those household projects now will make your life easier and more comfortable when fall arrives.
As summer officially rolls around, the sounds of hammers and saws fill the air, reminding us that ‘tis the season for home improvements. But is the timing right for all your projects?
Today's appliances are so reliable that you rarely think about them until there's a problem. Of course, with summer fast approaching, lifestyle changes can impact how you use your appliances and may put them at risk for breakdowns.
When you fire up the barbecue this summer, you’ll want to devote your attention to getting the perfect sear on that steak or grilling those veggies to smoky perfection -- not to mention spending a little time with your guests. Constantly answering the door or having to make a last-minute supermarket run can certainly make hosting a strain (and may possibly even risk your reputation as pitmaster).
