The holiday season has arrived, and thoughts turn to gift giving. Some people on your list are easy to buy for, while others keep you searching the malls and online stores for that “perfect something” that will delight a favorite person. With celebrations for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice and New Year’s, there are lots of opportunities to say “you’re special” or “I love you” with a well-chosen gift.

With the holidays coming, there’s certainly a lot to worry about. The endless shopping, cooking and baking, decorating, cleaning, parties, overnight guests, kids home on school break, and visits from invited friends and relatives who bring their uninvited pets. With all that going on, there are bound to be problems!

A good fireplace is built to last, and so they do. From one decade to the next, however, the style and design becomes dated and efforts to modernize and update your home will be frustrated. New paint, new floors and even new furniture in a room can all be dulled by an outdated fireplace. As the focal point in a room, a fireplace can make or break your attempts at modernization.

All across the country people are enjoying the cooler temperatures of fall and the breathtaking phenomenon of leaves changing color as we progress toward winter. Little by little, cooler wardrobe choices are appearing in closets and on coatracks by the front door. We make sure that everyone is protected from the cold of winter, even getting new sweaters for the dogs. But are you protecting your biggest investment … your home?

Halloween is right around the corner and this means your yard will be invaded by excited little monsters, princesses, pirates, super heroes and the entire cast of Star Wars. Are your walkways and entryway ready to safely engage all these visitors of the galaxies?

In the world of fashion, nothing stays the same. Hairstyles change, fashions evolve season to season, and makeup colors and techniques can completely make over a person with a whole new look. The same is true for your home, and new flooring is one of the easiest ways to completely change the look and feel of a home. With the right flooring, years fall away and your home will be instantly transformed!

If you’re looking ahead to fall entertaining, it’s time to get your outdoor spaces ready for enjoying crisp, cool evenings in complete comfort.

If you find yourself checking out new home websites when moving really isn’t an option, maybe you just need to look at your home with new eyes. You once loved it enough to buy it, so a little refresh and some updating could bring back the magic of that new home feeling. For a start, replace a boring gray concrete driveway with a resurfaced decorative concrete overlay in a custom flagstone design and you’ll feel like you’re coming home to a new house.

Are you ready for the last big summertime bash … the three-day Labor Day weekend? It’s a time to celebrate and honor American workers, like you, who work hard supporting their families, contributing to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our great country.
