The Importance of Upgrading Your Rental Premises read more…
Here in Tampa, we can enjoy the outdoors all year round without freezing in winter like the folks up north. As a result, we need our homes and our yards to have features that are built to survive frequent use and to withstand Florida’s tropical weather, while also looking awesome. When you need outdoor renovations for your home, there are some great ideas that incorporate all these factors.
Outdoor Renovations Start with the House
Walls, windows and doors need to keep out the sudden tropical downpours that can lash your home. While upgrading your outer walls to handle hurricane-strength weather, think about adding a textured surface with a fresh new color. Your home will appear like new and will have an added barrier.
New reinforced windows and shutters will help keep the weather out and the cool air in. Different window designs and frames can really freshen up a home, and shutters with strong hinges can protect with a stylish, old fashioned flair.
Have a professional regularly check the seals and drainage around your home. Violent weather and large volumes of water can overwhelm them or wear them out quickly. If that happens, you have a much bigger job ahead. read more…

Simple Remodeling for the Exterior Walls
Some of the daytime warmth stored in your home’s exterior walls will eventually make its way inside, even through the best insulation. Heat stored in the walls will really make its presence felt after sundown and keep the day’s warmth in when things outside are cooling off.
But you don’t have to redesign or replace entire walls to reduce the amount of heat getting inside. For any area that is often baked in sunlight, consider either painting it a more heat reflective color or add exterior blinds, shades and sails to keep the sun off. read more…
