1. Lawn Maintenance

It’s amazing how you can transform the look of your home with a few simple landscaping chores like mowing, weeding, mulching and trimming. Your lawn is one of the first impressions that the guests will notice. With proper care, your lawn will look and feel great for all the barefoot holiday traffic.

 

Mowing tip: set a mowing schedule so you never remove more than one-third of the total leaf surface of a single blade of grass.

 

2. Enhance Landscape

By adding fresh greenery and colorful flowers, you can enhance the curb appeal of your home. In addition, by planting marigolds, lavender, and basil, you can naturally drive away unwanted mosquitoes.

Garden ideas for planting and maintenance that you can try around your home this season.
Being strategic about the flowers you plant can ultimately keep away unwanted pests.

3. Outdoor Lighting

It’s safe to say that most guests won’t be leaving the party until dark, after the much-anticipated fireworks show. If you have any obstacles in your yard, lighting will be key for everyone’s safety on their way out. Kill two birds with one stone by creating outdoor mood lighting with tiki torches filled with bug-busting citronella oil.

 

Take back your yard from mosquitoes. Tiki torches are one of the many methods used to repel mosquitoes.

 

4. Gutters

After countless hours of effort and money are poured into preparing your home, don’t let it go to waste because your home’s gutter system isn’t functioning properly. Poorly functioning gutters can cause water damage to your roof, siding, windows, landscape, and foundation. Additionally, standing water in your gutters attracts unwanted pests and can become a health hazard.

Tips On Avoiding Storm Chaser Scams

Watch Out For Storm-Chasers

Storm chasers are companies that complete home repairs and solicit business from homeowners after large storms occur. These contractors often exploit vulnerable homeowners with money-making scams that can end up costing them and their insurance companies. Some storm chaser scamming tactics include offering to pay your deductible, performing inefficient low quality work, and creating fake or inflated damage and prepayment. After a storm has hit and damaged your home the last thing you want to worry about is the reliability of your contractor. Here are some tips on how to prevent storm chaser scams.

 

Storm damage assessment after hail storm.
When hail hits, it can damage your roof, gutters, siding, windows, and the amount of damage can vary. After a large storm hits, it’s in your home’s best interest to have an assessment to prevent further damage from happening before the next storm hits.

 

How to Avoid Storm Chaser Scams

  • License Plates. If the contractor is out of state, they are most likely just in town temporarily to perform work from the aftermath of the storm. Most have no intention of sticking around to follow up with customers, help with maintenance and upkeep or fix any repairs.
  • Company’s Office. If the contractor only has a P.O. box, that’s a big red flag.
  • Licensing. Be sure to see the paperwork. When hiring a contractor you will want to make sure they have licensing to work in your state and that they are properly insured.
  • Written Contract. Including cost, time frame, and itemized list about the type of work agreed upon, get a written contract. Do not feel pressured to sign anything you have not looked over carefully or don’t feel comfortable with.
  • Avoid paying with cash, personal check or before the work is completed. Paying in cash has no paper trail and is very difficult to get back. A credit card would be a safer option than something linked directly to your personal account such as a personal check.

Hire a Safe & Trusted Contractor

  • Look Local. A great resource to use is the Better Business Bureau or local Chamber of Commerce. Businesses who take time to be a part of the community is often a good indicator of a local business. Another way to look local is too ask friends and family for recommendations.
  • Gather Estimates. Always get a few estimates from different contractors. Compare them, do your research, look at reviews, and ultimately decided what would be the best choice.
