    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

    Tips For Keeping The Home Warm

    Now that it’s getting colder, it’s time to start cranking up with heat. With this, you’re energy and heating bill is going to rise. Here are some tips for keeping your home warm without spending a fortune:

    1. Seal air leaks and insulate

    One of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to cut down on costs is to seal any air leaks that are in the home, Vargas said. The biggest leaks are often in the basement or crawl space.

    And savings can be significant: Add up all the leaks in the average American home, and the draft let into the home is the equivalent to leaving a window open all year long, she said. In fact, homeowners can shave off 10% of their annual energy bills just by air sealing their homes and adding insulation in areas such as attics and crawl spaces, Vargas said.

    While some homeowners may feel comfortable doing this project on their own, others might want to hire a professional to do the work, Vargas said. Professionals also might find leaks that homeowners wouldn’t find on their own, she added.
