Fall in Boise Already?!

Posted by Boise Home Helper on September 10, 2012

Believe it or not the last week of Summer is upon us here in Boise! It seems like it was just last week that we were wondering if the sweltering heat would ever see an end; yet here we are already getting the coats out of the closet and thinking about starting the Christmas shopping.

Even though it’s not quite the end of Summer just yet, it’s still a good time to start taking care of seasonal home maintenance items before they get the jump on you!

Here are some good tips to help you keep your household in great shape for the change of seasons ahead!

 

Check for Drafts
Feel for drafty windows and doors. You can use a lighted candle near entry points to your home to detect where you might be experiencing air leaks. Keeping the heat in your home over the winter can save you big bucks. Talk to our Boise HVAC Pro if you need help!

Roof Check!
Here’s one place you do NOT want to have to deal with mid-winter! If you are able to do so safely, now is the time to at least give your roof the quick once over to check for loose shingles or leaks. Need a roofer in Boise? Talk to our Roofing Pro!

Clean the Gutters
Keeping the gutters clear of debris can really help make things run a lot smoother, especially as we have the more wet Fall months ahead of us. A good once over should do the trick, but if your gutters are hard to reach or just too much to take on All Valley Window Cleaning can help you take care of them – or you can give our Boise Handyman a call also!

Faucets,Hoses,Water
Winter will be a terrible time for leaks or burst pipes! Get ahead of those items by inspecting your water systems. This includes blowing out sprinklers, storing hoses, and making sure outside faucets are weather ready. Our Boise Plumbing Expert can help you with any of your plumbing questions or needs.

Chim-chim-cheree!
Chimney sweeps aren’t something just out of Mary Poppins – and if you’ve ever experienced a clogged or dirty chimney you know they are no children’s faerie tale! A filthy chimney is not only inefficient but it can be a real hazard! Keep your house warm and safe – talk to our Chimney Sweeping Pro!

No matter how long your list of honey-do’s and get-ready items may be the Boise Builders Group can help you get those things marked off your list! Get your home ready for the Winter now so you can enjoy these fast fleeting months of Fall in Boise while they last!

What Makes a Boise Plumbing Professional?

Posted by Boise Home Helper on July 12, 2012

Are Piping Contractor and Plumbing Contractors the same?

We really are living in a time of a lot of blending and multi tasking. It has much to do with the way things are run in our everyday lives.  While it seems that this question should have an easy answer,  it really requires slightly more clarification than you might first think.

Most Plumbers are state approved and ( depending on the State ) required to do a continued education call to keep that approved state. This allows them to do any specialized area of piping they prefer ( Notice the term any Piping ). So Yes a Contractor with highly qualified Plumbers can handle any situation in the pipe field. Which does not leave very much wiggle room for a Piping Contractor ( at least you might think ).

Piping Contractors are undoubtable the most misunderstood and underground specialty profession that can go unseen. Plumbing contractors can often do more complex tasks than a plumber, as well as all of the tasks that a plumber can do. You might find a plumbing contractor working to construct the home’s waste disposal system, installing gas connections and flues, or even working on water heaters. Truly there is a great need for these under estimated professionals. They fit into an industry of unique areas and require a measure of skill to be successful in the field.

So who does it best? Plumbers and Pipers have had a few wrestling matches on who can do what better than who and that keeps the drive in the trade to new ideas and keeps the industry flowing in the direction it needs to go.

The good news is 2 Thumbs Up Plumbing & Remodeling can help you no matter what your plumbing or piping related needs may be! To find out more on the proper plumbing System and what it is made up of  visit our links below or Call 891-1104 for immediate assistance!
