What Home Inspectors See that You Can’t

by Jeff Belisowski with 0 Comments in September 27, 2018

When you make an offer on a home, it’s a smart idea to have a professional home inspector check it out from top to bottom. This inspection will ensure that the property doesn’t have any unexpected “issues”. After all, you don’t want to buy a home only to discover that the roof needs to be replaced, immediately, for thousands of dollars.   Nevertheless, you might question whether you really need to invest the few hundred dollars it costs for a professional home inspection. “The home we want to buy looks like it’s in very good shape,” you might be thinking....

Avoiding Waste When Watering Your Lawn

Avoiding Waste When Watering Your Lawn

by Jeff Belisowski with 0 Comments in July 30, 2018

HOME OWNER  TIPS & ADVICE The following tips will help you avoid waste when watering your lawn: Use a low-angle, pulsating sprinkler. Water sprayed high into the air produces a mist that loses much of its moisture through evaporation. Water the lawn, not the sidewalk or driveway. Lawns need about an inch of water per week. To determine how much watering time that requires, place an empty tuna tin within your sprinkler’s range, and note how long it takes to fill. When watering, account for recent rain. Use an automatic sprinkler system that allows you to adjust the area, frequency...
