Glue Paper Trap

It works, I bought four glue paper trap, they passed by it and they were trapped. But we need to throw the glue paper trap when it catches one mouse right away so the other mouse won’t notice. Because when you left it there, they will be aware and they will not pass by it. It seems like you are wasting it but don’t be the only matter is it catches at least one mice for each glue paper trap. There were two mice left, I might buy another pair by tomorrow, I can’t wait to perish them inside the house and I hope they will never come back.

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.
