My husband gets a bit nervous when things happen. I have become the voice of reason in our family. He used to make split-second decisions that were always right. Now things get to him. We were sitting and watching a movie on DVD. A storm was raging outside and the satellite TV lost signal. We heard a big crunch followed by a crash. The huge maple tree in the front yard fell over. It looked like something out of a movie. The twisted roots were sticking up, and the place that does tree removal in Long Island told us that it missed the house and garage by inches. We could not even get up to the front of the house or garage because of the tree branches. Continue reading
Part of the charm of this house we bought was its slate roof. It really brought together the whole look of the house. We liked the Old World charm that was coupled with the new technology in the renovations the owner did. The kitchen had commercial-grade appliances and was designed to be a gourmet kitchen. The forced-air HVAC system had HEPA filtration. Well, looks and technology are nice, but slate can be a problem keeping it looking good and watertight. We had called for roof repair in Manhattan NY reaching out to a company who would work on a slate roof.
Fortunately, for us, the only problem was the roof area over the back porch. It was the only spot that needed redone. You can still buy slate shingles, but matching what you already have might present a problem. Continue reading
My mother left her house to my family in her will, and we moved into it a few months ago. I am very glad to be a home owner now, because it meant that I was able to move my kids out of an apartment. This is a much better environment for them to grow up in, and so I am very thankful. Unfortunately the house needs a lot of work, and I have gotten some things done, and now I am looking into roof installation in Queens NY and I would like to figure out how much it is going to cost.
I know it is not going to come cheap and so I just hope that I am able to come up with enough money to pay for it. Though I kind of doubt I will be able to, because I am fairly sure it is going to be more expensive than I can afford at the moment. Continue reading
It is easy to get behind in things. It is also easy to be doing work that is not really helping you to generate income to your full potential. My wife’s pregnancy required her to take it easy when she was approaching full term. She is a go-getter who needs to have everything done before she will rest. So, I decided to hire a cleaning company in Toronto to keep our house in order until after our baby arrived. I was calling off work to make sure she would rest by making sure both my responsibilities and hers were done. She is the type who will do her part and yours if you wait too long to get something done. It is just how she is. I was having a hard time getting it all done so she would have no excuse not to take it easy. It was actually more cost effective for me to hire the cleaning crew than it was to stay home from work.

If the time has come to get a new AC unit installed for your business or commercial building, you will want to hire an HVAC company that is experienced with NYC projects. An AC installation in NYC is different than most areas with complex challenges, so experience matters more than many other areas. Installations vary from AC units to central AC systems to chilled water central systems. It is best to consult with an HVAC company when you are ready to begin the process for replacing your existing system. They will be able to go over the particulars of your particular business or building needs.
Many businesses have different demands, some are concerned with just cooling one floor, others several, and some entire buildings. Continue reading
