Worksite safety is the number one priority in any project we work on, and so is your personal safety especially if you'll be using a ladder to hang your decorations at home 🪜

Stay safe and always make sure your ladder is well-positioned. If you're overreaching then you're too far from the wall and work area. Climb down, and reposition it in a safer spot, you don't want to hurt yourself in a time of festivities 👍 #HoHoHolmes #HolmesForTheHolidays Holmes Approved Homes

I love the durability of engineered wood. Even though the look of hardwood is classic, I prefer engineered wood flooring in most cases because it’s less likely to be affected by humidity and temperature changes. Made from three to five layers of wood that are stacked and bonded together under heat and pressure, a composite product is created that is stronger and stiffer.

A finished basement is an investment that can add a lot of value to your home, but you will want to make sure that you’ve insulated properly and protected against moisture. Your basement can serve as an extended living space, a rental suite or a play room.

To finish a basement properly, you have to address moisture coming from the outside and the temperature differences inside that cause moisture.

If you notice your windows starting to fog, there could be a number of reasons. It may be an excess of humidity, faulty windows or poor ventilation. You need to investigate this because weeping windows can lead to mold and can compromise the structure of the window. #TipTuesday
If you notice a crack in your foundation, mark it with tape. Now check back in a few months. If the cracks aren’t growing they can usually be filled with an epoxy injection or expandable foam.
If you can fit a coin in any of the cracks, it’s time to waterproof from the outside.
I knew when I bought my home it would be my forever home. So when it comes to renovations I think about how I can renovate to age in place. I recommend focusing on taking care of the basic needs first – eating, sleeping, and bathing comfortably👍 #HoHoHolmes #HolmesForTheHolidays https://t.co/pvvI2JYmoQ
There are no detectors out there that will indicate the presence of bad smells. It’s up to your nose to tell you there’s a stinky smell in the house. It’s important to know what those odors are, and what you can do about them. https://t.co/bcxsQyZejM
