Crest View : My Friend’s House

One day my friend who just arrived from Dubai visited me here in the house. We had a long chit chats, I learned that she have a new house, they just got it recently. They don’t want to put it up yet since she will go back to Dubai but the developer house informed them that the spot they choose is ready to build and it is already approved. When they visited the house a month ago, it was not totally buil but when we came for a visit now, the wall was put up already. She talked to one of the staff in the village, they said it will be completed. The month that she will be going back to Dubai. They want to slow the construction down but I guess they can’t get a hold of it already.

I am so happy for her, finally they can have a home that they can call their own. Sooner or later, this house will be so beautiful just like my friend and her family.

A Home Should Have A Solid Foundation

Every home should be built with a solid foundation. Some houses include basements that not only support the structure, but also provides more space for families. When problems arise, basement foundation repairs are crucial to ensuring the health and stability of these houses are not jeopardized.

At some point, you might notice a chip or crack in the foundation. Overlooking it might seem like the best thing, especially if only a small area is affected. However, a flooded basement or sections of the house is an indication that more attention is warranted. There are many things that you can do as a homeowner to keep the foundation strong for many years to come.

When the Foundation Cracks

Some cracks are an indication that an area in the basement is not draining properly. Another cause is soil has crept under the foundation and has begun expanding and pushing into the foundation. Not having the reason for these cracks diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible could lead to a costlier repair such as having a new foundation installed.

Over time, it is not unusual for foundations to crack because of their rigid texture. One minor crack might not raise too much concern. However, multiple small ones should be examined by a professional. A structural engineer can identify the source of the crack and assess the extent of the damage. This information is beneficial to finding the right solution to avoid a reoccurrence.

Avoid Long-Term, Costly Repairs

The longer you ignore cracks, whether they are single, multiple, large or small, you run the risk of them growing over time. Ultimately, your basement will begin to leak water whenever it rains. Not only can this lead to very expensive repairs, but these cracks can reduce the value of your home. Repairing the foundation is very important to avoid significant damage.

Get Help from the Professionals

While you can probably search the Internet for DIY projects to fix cracks, getting professional help is probably a safer and wiser solution. This is especially true when the issues raise major concerns. An experienced foundation repair company will properly assess the situation and make the best repair recommendations. Hiring a professional gives you access to expert information and tips on avoiding future problems as much as possible.

Furthermore, severely damaged areas might need reinforcements that are not found in at-home kits. Hiring a contractor is your best chance of working with someone who has all the right tools.

They’re At It Again

They had been taken cared of but I realized they are not all finish. I’d been buying rat sticker, many of it was captured but since there was a hole in our door before, they are going to get through it even we already put numbers of stickers. The hole was taken cared of last month but I always forget to buy a sticker.

Right now I can see 3 little mouse, running around the floor, and it get worst because they are climbing up to the sink already where our utensils and plates are placed for dry. I am really getting annoyed this little being, and they should wait for it this Friday because I will but lots of stickers this time. I will not forget of it anymore since it is already listed to my organizer. So wait for it little neighbors.

Protecting an RV from Weather Damage

Those who invest a great deal of money in their recreational vehicles usually look to protect their investment from the elements. The sun, rain, hail and wind can cause costly damage to a pop up camper, a fifth wheel trailer or a motor home.

The sun will oxide and fade the finish of the RV, as well as heat the interior to unbearable temperatures. Hail will leave pock marked indentations in the roof and siding and is nearly impossible to remove. Wind can produce falling limbs that can break windshields, windows and roofs. Considering the cost of an RV and the potential repair costs due to weather damage, a certain degree of protection is a priority for owners.

Some may seek to have their vehicle stored offsite at a storage facility or on the property of another. But monthly rental costs at a storage facility can quickly add up to several thousand dollars per year, provided one is available.

An enclosed garage is another option but may be cost prohibited to some. A garage requires a concrete foundation, a great deal of lumber, exterior side, roofing shingles and electrical wiring. A building large enough to store an RV 30 feet or longer will be a substantial construction project. In some areas, building restrictions may prohibit construction so large in residential neighborhoods.

Many RV owners are now considering metal car ports to provide storage for their campers and motorhomes. A carport is a prefabricated structure consisting of a metal frame and metal panels for roofing and siding.

Metal RV carports will consist of a roof to cover the RV and partial or full sides. The metal panels are prefinished at the factory. Because the finish is applied under factory conditions as opposed to onsite, it is a more durable coating. Predrilled holes for attaching the panels to the frame are performed at the factory and the hardware should come with the kit.

Those with minimal mechanical ability can often erect the carport without the use of professional building trade workers. If skilled tradesmen are used, the structure will be completed in less time than a garage. One can be constructed with or without a concrete foundation. A fully constructed metal RV building is often less than half of the construction cost of a similarly sized garage. So for those seeking to keep their RV out of the elements but wish to do economically, the metal building is often the method of choice.
