Home Check Plus Turns 16!

Sweet 16! Yes, Home Check Plus turned 16 this year! Home remodeling has always been in my blood and the past 16 years have been great!  It is very rewarding to take a project from the design phase, through construction and completing it with the final cleaning and walk through. Being we are a full-service remodeler, every day is unique and different. One day we might be replacing windows and the next day demo-ing a kitchen to be remodeled. I am blessed with very dedicated employees, so “thank you” to them. And of course we couldn’t do what we love to do without our wonderful customers. Turning 16 is pretty sweet!

Wishing everyone a happy Spring!

Darn Ice Dams!

Home Maintenance Tip:

An ice dam can form when water from melting snow re-freezes at the edge of your roof-line. Without roof snow removal, the ice dam may grow large enough to prevent water from draining off the roof. The water can then back up underneath the roof shingles and make its way inside your home.

Solution: Remove ice dam and snow from roof – we recommend calling a professional.

Prevention: Make sure your attic is well insulated & ventilated to help prevent the melting-and-freezing cycle that causes ice dams to form and try to remove the snow from your roof eaves after every snowfall.

Check & Replace Air Filter Regularly

Home Improvement Tip:

Dirty air filters will reduce the airflow in your home, forcing your furnace to work harder. Plus, it creates more dust and increases indoor air pollution in your home. Check and replace your air filters regularly so your furnace can heat your home as efficiently as possible.
