Fireplace improvements are a great way to update your living space. Getting rid of an old smoked brick colonial style mantled fireplace is just what the doctor ordered for modernizing your home. If that’s your style, big beautiful mantles can be nice as long as your woodworker knows what they are doing. But dont let your “once handy” grandpa do it in his spare time because chances are, he can’t see quite as well as he used to and he just might lose a finger!

You might not hear them. You might not see them. Something is stirring in your house, climbing up the walls, gnawing beneath the surface. Termites.
A homeowner who discovers termite damage will spend an average of $3,000 to repair the damage. There is good reason to be concerned about these little pests. Termites are capable of compromising the strength and safety of an infested structure and homes constructed primarily of wood are not the only structures at risk of termite infestation. Termites are capable of traversing through plaster, metal, siding and more. Once they are inside, termites will then begin to feed on cabinets, floors, ceilings, and wooden furniture. It seems that they will stop at nothing. But don’t panic! There are some things that you can do. Identification of termite infestation is key, as well as preventative measures that can be taken to protect your home. And in case of termite damage, Home Mender is ready to help!
