Safe Building 101: Creating a Climate-Controlled Space In Your Home
As I started to increase my art collection, I wanted to make sure that my investment was protected. I wasn't sure exactly how to store it all when it wasn't on display, but I knew I needed to do something. I decided to talk with a local construction contractor about how to secure my art, and he suggested a climate-controlled secure room in my home. They built a vault-like space in the house that is perfect for long-term storage. I created this site to showcase what was done in the hopes that others may seek the same solution. I hope the information here helps you to secure your financial investment as well.

Water can be an extremely destructive force within your home. Flooding has the potential to cause serious structural damage and put the safety of your family at risk.
Not all types of flooding are created equal. There are some important factors to consider as you evaluate water damage in your home so that you can partner with the right repair specialist to restore your home.

If you have a problem with your pool equipment during the summer heat, it can cause water to turn green quickly. Sometimes, these problems can be solved with a little maintenance and using shock treatments, but they often require repairs.

When purchasing a piece of property, one detail that you need to understand is where the property's boundary lines are located. Not only will knowing the property boundaries prevent confusion with your new neighbors, but it's essential information if you want to add a fence or make other improvements to the lot.
However, there are different types of land surveys available. One type is known as an ALTA (American Land Title Association) land survey.
Tree cutting isn't a project that homeowners should take on their own, if your neighbors cut down their tree and it landed on your roof and caused damage, there are some calls you have to make. Even if you are understanding that the tree damage was an accident and you like your neighbor, you don't want to have to pay for all the damages to be repaired. You could have roof, interior, and exterior damage.
As with many home renovation projects, you can view roofing work as an unfortunate expense or an opportunity to improve your home. The average roof lasts less than two decades, making roof replacement an expense that many homeowners will have to face multiple times. While there is no avoiding the initial expense of installing a new roof, you can help to make the most of your purchase by taking this opportunity to increase your home's energy efficiency.
