Remodeling Cost Versus Value for 2010

When remodeling your home, don’t overspend. Update your home so you can enjoy it or sell it, but don’t expect a return on your investment.  In past years, you would recoup most of the cost of remodelling when you sold your home.  Today, you will only get back from 60 to 70% of your costs, according to Remodeling Magazines Cost Versus Value  Survey for 2010-2011.

Prevent and Fix Ice Dams

Heavy snows and cold weather can cause dangerous ice dams in your gutters. Water from melting snow runs down the roof slope under the snow and refreezes at the roof’s edge creating a dam. Millions of dollars in damage each year is caused by ice dams.  Improper attic insulation and air leaks can cause a warm attic, which is conducive to ice dams.  To remove your ice dam, use a snow rake to remove snow from the roof and calcium chloride to melt the ice.  For more info go to
