Fire Safety and Your Roof

Do you know if your roof is in optimal condition in the event of a wildfire?  The Marin County Fire Department Community Wildfire Protection has some excellent guidelines to help you determine if you need to replace your roof. Read on…

If your roof has reached the end of its service life, it should be replaced. The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) recommends hiring a professional roofing contractor to replace or repair your roof covering.


Planning to Paint?

Planning on painting your house this year? NOW is a great time to buy the paint when the demand is low. Make sure to select paint colors with resale in mind. You never know when your life circumstances may change and you will move and need to sell. I have worked with top stagers and they always suggest a soft exterior color and bold front door. Keep the trim subtle and complementary. Whites, grays and touches of black are good choices. Off-white and tan is also a nice combo. The all-white farmhouse look is big with Millennials. Be a bit more unique, as you don’t want every house in the neighborhood to look the same!

Here are some colors that I have personally used. Always try your samples on the house first and view them at different times of the day to see the effects of lighting changes. Think in terms of color, trim and accent color (front door, shutters, etc.) BM = Benjamin Moore, SW = Sherwin Williams, Behr – Home Depot. If you need help, go to your local Benjamin Moore paint store and talk to their color specialists. There are many fine ones in the Bay Area.

Solution For Fading Furniture

Don’t you hate it when your floors, furniture and rugs fade from years in the sun and heat? I have a suggestion for you. Add window film to your windows…It cuts down on the heat and fade factor. I have done this in my own home and think it has made a huge difference. 3M and Madico make window films that cut the UV rays and glare. You won’t even notice that the film is on your windows. Contact me if you need referrals to companies who install these products.
