Hiring A Patio Cover Company? Here’s What To Look For

While adding a cover to your patio might seem like a quick and simple addition to your home that doesn’t require much thought, ask anyone who’s done it and they’ll tell you otherwise.

In addition to considering what best fits the existing property and provides for the regular daily needs of your family, there’s also city codes and homeowner’s association rules to consider. Failing to adhere to these rules can lead to fines or even being forced to take the cover down.

Are Cats Really A Good Choice For Getting Rid Of Rodents?

There’s a long tradition of taking cats aboard ships to help control rat infestations. That tradition seems to have translated into a belief that they’re good for doing the same job at home as well. But are cats actually an effective method of natural pest control?
Longtime cat owners have no doubt been presented with the “gift” of a dead rat (or even a very unfortunate bird) by their feline companion at some point. It’s true that cats will naturally pursue rodents in the house, as their instincts identify them as prey and drive them to hunt. The fact that they’re […]

Sometimes a Simple, Affordable Bath Remodel is the Only Option

We say to ourselves, “Nobody’s bathroom is perfect.” Yet, we think to ourselves, “With all the products out there isn’t there some way to get rid of mold and mildew?”

We look around the cleaning section for a miracle every time we go to the store. Somehow we haven’t been able to find one yet.

We apologize when friends and family come to visit. Of course, they reassure us that it isn’t, “that bad. Haven’t we seen their bathrooms?” Though they might genuinely have mold and mildew issues in their bathrooms too, deep down, we still want a better, cleaner, more comfortable […]

The Importance of Basement Waterproofing in the Winter Months

Nobody likes a wet basement. Especially during Fall and Spring, when the West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky weather brings heavy storms and rainfalls, you don’t want to end up with water damage. But at the same time, don’t overlook the importance of waterproofing during winter, either.

Snow will eventually melt. But while it’s in place, you may be deceived into thinking that your basement is safe. Until it begins to melt off your roof and foundation, and begins to drip into your basement. Once that happens, it may be too late to prevent significant damage.

That’s why waterproofing before and during […]
