Updated showers enhance accessibility.

Making upgrades to your kitchen and bathrooms without doing complete remodels can increase accessibility and add to the value of your home.  Updating your shower, putting in a bigger bathtub or a raised toilet, new sinks and faucet sets, or even relocating your appliances can have a big impact.

Doing a partial remodel can provide a number of key benefits.

Improved Safety

As we get a little older, bathrooms can become harder to get around in. Adding grab bars, handheld showerheads, walk-in tubs and chair-height toilets can make getting around much easier.  Long-term these upgrades may allow you to stay in your home longer. Read more

Frozen Pipes Lead to Water Damage

Frozen Pipes Can Lead to Substantial Water Damage

Frigid temperatures are forecast over the next several days and weeks. Taking a few preventative actions now can help avoid major plumbing issues and potential water damage to your home or business.

What to Do When Temperatures Really Drop

Very cold weather can lead to frozen water lines and substantial water damage if those lines burst, especially for older homes. 

Cold temperatures and winter winds can push very cold air into your home and cause poorly insulated pipes in your walls, basements, and crawl spaces to freeze. Pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to freezing. An 1/8-inch crack in a pipe can leak up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing flooding, serious structural damage, and the immediate potential for mold.

Feeling Good With Pure, Clear Water

When the dog days of summer are upon us almost anything we do outside makes us thirsty. Our bodies need water to recover and feel refreshed.

Reverse osmosis water filtration systems provide clear, clean water free from impurities.

Why Good Water Is Needed for Good Health

Water, along with quenching our thirst, also lubricates our joints, nourishes and protects our organs, keeps our body temperature normal, and plays a large role in removing waste from our bodies.

So when our bodies crave water it is important to give our families the best drinking water possible. With the water in our area not always smelling or tasting the best, we often reach for a bottle of water purchased at a local store.
