    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

    I feel that I can never post too many tips on home security. It's such a hot issue in Cleveland Heights. These are some great tips and advice, but if you have any tips that you've found useful, be sure to comment on these posts so others can know! Stay safe Cleveland!

    1. If out of the home for an extended period of time, create the illusion that someone may still be there. Leave a TV or stereo on in the room where a burglar would most likely break in. Use exterior lighting and motion detectors to minimize burglar concealment.
    2. Make sure all exterior doors have good proper locks. Install 1-inch deadbolt locks on all exterior doors.
    3. If you get an unexpected knock at the door, check to see who it is before opening it.
    4. Do not leave extra keys under doormats, potted plants or any other obvious outdoor location. Thieves will generally find them. Find an inconspicuous place to hide the keys, or give a set to a neighbor you can trust.
    5. Burglar-proof your glass patio doors by setting a pipe or metal bar in the middle bottom track of the door slide. The pipe should be the same length as the track.
    6. Keep garage doors shut.
