With the dog days of summer coming to an end it is time to make sure our homes are ready for the winter months. With oil and gas prices so high we want to make sure that we are not letting all our money go out the windows or any where else it may be sneeking out of our homes. Inspecting the windows, your doors, the attic and basement for drafts could help you cut down on your heating bills this winter. Something we are all interested in doing especially these days.
With the variety of articles below you can learn how to be your own home inspector and handyperson. All you need are a few tools that most of us have around the house. After you have done your inspections and found out what is needed to be done then its time to fix the problem spots. If you have found a problem that is to big to handle yourself always remember to call a professional.
If you are in need of a professional please visit our Preferred Partners page on our website. Sweeney & O'Connell's Preferred Partners are made up of Local Business Owners that we have used ourselves and would recommend to you our clients. Contact us if you do not see the professional you are looking for and we will help you find what you are looking for.
