Roof Crafters Gives Away New Roof

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Jun-22 — /EPR CONSUMER NEWS/ — After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

The project at White’s house changed when Vaughn, an Owens-Corning Platinum Contractor, contacted Magee, another Platinum Preferred installer with Owens Corning, to see if Magee had a “backup crew” available in case inclement weather or other difficulties forced the Tulsa team to return home before the project was complete. Being community minded Roof Crafters gives away new roof by providing all the labor to install the roofing system.

“[Magee] said, ‘Hey, I’ve got a crew that will do the whole thing,’” Vaughn said. Materials were donated by ABC Supply, a nationwide supplier.

White’s one-story home was elevated after the storm, but the roof was not replaced at the time. White has lived in the 50-year old house for 15 years.

Team coordinator Dr. Amy Emerson said the team wanted to help White because she gives so much to others.

“She is an incredible lady who uses her vacation time each year to cook two hot meals for children in the Hollygrove neighborhood, who attend a week-long summer camp,” Emerson said. “It’s fun to see all kinds of people come together to do this project.”

Other activities held in conjunction with the team’s visit included a “Pete the Cat” literacy event, based on the popular children’s series books by Eric Litwin. Free books were provided for children that attended. The churches are co-led by ministers Charles Marsalis and Kirk Garrison.

While the long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma team has made them “family,” White said the focus of the week was on the children and not the adults workers. “Even though it’s just for a few days, the children are getting something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”

Leading Personal Property Evaluation Expert Allan Baitcher Provides Aon Insurance Wealth Managers the Tools for Success

The United States’ most recognized appraisal expert, Allan Baitcher, was recently the keynote speaker at an Aon Insurance corporate meeting. At the conference, Mr. Baitcher spoke to wealth management experts about a bank of portfolio strategies, including how wealth managers can provide assistance to clients with artwork or collectibles.

Mr. Baitcher encouraged Aon Insurance’s wealth management experts to maintain current appraisals, as well as to keep their clients’ insured valuables as part of a photographic inventory. “Specifically, items having a value of over $5,000 should be individually appraised and updated on a regular basis,” Mr. Baitcher encouraged. Since market trends are on the rise for antiques, art, and collectibles, annual appraisals should be conducted, and regular updates to appraisals should also be performed.

At the conference, Mr. Baitcher explained to wealth managers the importance of keeping their clients’ collectibles and valuable personal property in a wealth management portfolio rather than leaving those items as stagnant assets.

About Allan Baitcher
With over thirty years of experience as a professional appraiser, Allan Baitcher has gained national and global recognition as a valuable member of the appraisal field. In addition, Mr. Baitcher is one of the United States’ leading experts in personal property documentation and insurance.

As a world leading auctioneer, Mr. Baitcher looks forward to hosting the Share Our Strength auction at the Georgia Aquarium on May 8, 2014. The annual event features culinary creations from nationwide chefs. Share Our Strength has raised millions of dollars globally in an effort to provide food for the needy and end childhood hunger. Mr. Baitcher has hosted this event for the past ten years, and is proud to contribute to the fight to end childhood hunger.

Mr. Baitcher will also chair the live auction at the Lake Lanier Pirate Poker Run July 17-20, 2014. Truly an incredible event for an extremely worthy cause, proceeds from the poker run and live auction will benefit children in need. One of the preeminent poker runs in the South, the Lake Lanier Pirate Poker Run is attended by people from all over the United States.

Lamp Post Electrical Store All The Elnur Heat

Lamp Post Electrical have great pleasure in promoting the Elnur range of Storage Heaters. Storage Heaters were once the poor relatives of the heating area as the cost of gas became so much cheaper than the electrical or oil equivalents. In those days storage heaters were limited in their operation and ability but today there has been a whole new range of storage radiators which compete very fairly with the modern gas systems in certain areas and there is a great potential for their further growth in the market. Lamp Post Electrical and Elnur have some of the best and can supply them quickly.

Lamp Post Electrical are delighted to stock the full Elnur Storage Heater range as this is a company which has spent a lot of time and effort in developing some of the best storage heaters on the market. The quality is excellent and the performance is surprisingly good and the latest storage heater is a far cry from the heaters of old and the cost of operation is quite competitive.

Storage Heaters now have a number of niche areas where they dominate the market and Lamp Post Electrical and the Elnur Storage Heaters have risen to the challenge. Apartment living is a major area for storage heaters as there are many areas in large populated apartment blocks where gas has been excluded because of the fire and explosion dangers which are magnified when there is such close proximity between residents. Also the apartment rental market is ideally suited to the installation of a storage heater heating system as it is easy to control by the landlords and easy to use by the renters. This market used to have to pay extra for their heating costs but today the storage heater has improved so much that the heater can be heated at night by cheap electricity on the white meter and discharged the following day and night. Lamp Post Electrical are amazed at the insulation of the latest Elnur Storage Heaters which ensures that the natural heat loss from the storage heater is very small which makes almost all the input heat available to heat the room. The emission of the stored heat is now expertly maintained by digital temperature controllers to ensure correct room temperature.

Lamp Post Electrical can supply all the Elnur range of heaters including the top of range fan controlled storage heaters which can bring the room up to temperature quickly and keep excellent control through the evening. The controllers can be linked to a central control to work exactly as a gas or oil fired system with set periods for heating in the morning and evening. Whilst the cost of use is slightly higher than gas the cost of installation of a storage heater system is very much lower than a gas fired system and the total cost when averaged over the life of the systems is very similar.

The Door Store Has That Summer Calypso Feeling

The Door Store is always looking to improve the range of doors its supplies to the building and Do It Yourself (DIY) trade and each year seems to bring a more interesting range to the already massive selection that the company stocks. The Door Store uses several excellent manufacturers but one of the major ones is JB Kind and this company never seem to disappoint in the issue of new and exciting designs. Their latest range of internal doors is the Calypso range, a range, which epitomises the Caribbean and all that the name evokes.

JB Kind have supplied the Door Store for many years and their new models of doors definitely fit the modern market requirements and this year their new range seems to reflect the hot summer we have had and which is forecast to continue well into September. The Calypso range is a pine door range made for the more modern house or perhaps more correctly the more modern decorated house. This range of doors is a white primed pine door range of the typical shaker style and includes glass panels of various configurations. The design has clean simple lines that will go very well in today’s modern buildings.

The Door Store is pleased to promote the JB Kind Calypso Trinidad Internal Door in particular, which is typical of the range and is a white primed pine door with 3 vertical glass panels. This door is ideal for fitting in halls or rooms where there is an advantage of getting light from one room into another. The vertical glass panels are made from clear safety glass to protect against any potential breakage accidents which may occur. This range of doors is ideal for that summer feeling and will let light into places which may be quite difficult at present.

There is always a discussion to be had regarding the use of pine doors with glass inserts as by definition they do not provide a safety door application so that in the event of a fire they are unable to provide a time barrier between rooms for possible escape, also they do make privacy between rooms difficult or impossible as they do not provide good sound protection or visual privacy to any real degree. Therefore on installing these doors it is necessary to weigh up the options and if a fire door or a privacy door is considered essential then the Door Store has the options available.

The Door Store – http://www.the-door-store.co.uk – notes that the JB Kind Calypso Trinidad Internal Door is made with a central pine core and faced with MDF, which is primed white to enable the end user to get the door painted to their preferred finish, with no need for an extra layer of undercoat.

The manufacture is very good and will grace most applications and comes at a price that is extremely competitive and also has the extra benefit of a 5% discount when 10 doors or more are bought at the same time. This is a door well worth considering.

Ace Sheds For The Gardens Of London

Ace Sheds are pleased to have their manufacturing facilities in Ashford in Kent which is on the doorstep of London and which can supply a full range of high quality garden sheds to the Capital City. There is a strong feeling that London is a concrete jungle and that gardens and hence garden sheds are an irrelevance. However the people of London will tell a very different story and whilst this might apply to a limited area of London, the vast area of Metropolitan London has an array of gardens that will surprise many a countryside visitor.

Ace Sheds are very proud to serve London with a range of garden sheds in London that can meet almost any requirement of the user, quickly and at a cost that is very cheap. Ace Sheds are very proud to note that the cost does not stop them producing a very high quality garden shed, which can be self-erected swiftly and easily by the owners of the property. Ace Sheds have recognised some of the individual requirements for the London shed and produce a range to meet that market place and if there any gaps they are only too pleased to discuss personal preferences and changes or even build a self-design shed.

Ace Sheds realise that the cycle is a major way of travelling in London, it is easier and often quicker that the car and of course is not subject to the Congestion charge. Keeping a cycle requires a storage area and Ace Sheds are proud to provide the London Bike Shed which stores the cycle safely and securely outside the house the size is small and will conveniently fit into a small space in the back garden. The London Bike Shed has been built with security in mind.

Storage is always going to be a major problem in London and the garden shed can provide a great storage facility in an area where household space is often at a premium and the cost of a solid building extension is very high and planning approval or practical space to install it is often impossible. Ace Sheds have realised this and provide very cost effective solutions. The Reigate Shed is one of the Ace Shed models, which are ideal for London. The shed provides good storage and is a security shed built to deter unwanted attention from prying eyes. Firstly the standard model has just one small window fitted up high and impossible for any person to access. It could even be removed if required. Ace Sheds are proud to have fitted tongued and grooved wooden sides that cannot be accessed without destroying the shed. The doors and its fittings are secure and Ace Sheds can fit a high quality locking system and can also provide a shed burglar alarm, which can be linked to alarm the owner at home.

Ace Sheds provide potting sheds for the gardener and a complete range of other applications and a quick look at their excellent website will show just how relevant the garden shed is to a London household.

My Carpet Pal Rotovac 360i Turning Heads Everywhere!

The carpet cleaning industry has really come a long way since the invention of the first hand held carpet cleaner in 1956 invented by Mr. Harry Rench, CEO and founder of Rench Manufacturing Company. The first designs had some very evident limitations that Mr. Rench tried to fix and improve the drycleaner’s for carpeting. The vacuum had a very nice appealing look to it and was equipped with an electric cord. Most people at the time couldn’t afford to buy these newly invented cleaning machines and Mr. Rench rented the cleaning machines out to people wanting to clean their carpets. It was like a dream come true for most people with carpeting in their homes.

Over the years, the carpet cleaning machines has gotten a lot better and with the technology of the twentieth century; Mr. Rench’s ideas of carpet cleaning has taken off to a whole new level of carpet cleaning. One of the concepts that really helped the carpet cleaning industry become the great industry that it is today is the advent of the portable extractors and later the truck-mounts. Prochem industries are one of the major leaders today in the technology of carpet cleaning using the truck mounting delivery system. Practically, all of the carpet cleaning professionals today use truck-mounts with the jet spraying system.

Mr. Steve Allison invented the first carpet cleaning wand which he referred to in his patent applications to a method and apparatus for cleaning and rinsing carpets. This was actually invented in 1991 and assigned with the United States Patent Office. Mr. Allison invented a wand that could actually clean and dry the carpet at the same time which was really unbelievable at the time. The concept of the wand was like washing your clothes and drying them in the same machine; it was truly another big breakthrough in the carpet cleaning industry. The wand actually helped to revolutionize the carpet cleaning industry and it is still a major force of the carpeting business today still while we talk at this moment.

Since the invention of the carpet cleaning wand; several companies have industrialized the wands – making them lighter and with better water jets. Prochem has one of the best carpet cleaning wands today on the market with their six (6) jet titanium light weight wand which sell for about $1,299.00 retail. These new revolutionary carpet cleaning wands are a carpet cleaners dream come true. Now there’s a new kid on the block and it was invented by Mr. Cliff Monson called the Rotovac 360i and the Hyrdamaster RX-20. These rotary giants have taken carpet cleaning and steam cleaning to an entire new level in the cleaning business.

The Rotovac carpet cleaning machine is an excellent tool for carpet cleaning. The machine delivers effortless, self-propelled cleaning with the touch of a hand. The rotary heads thoroughly deep clean carpet with hundreds of multi-directional movements. The 360i is light weight at only 39 pounds and super easy to operate. The Rotovac is definitely turning heads in the carpet cleaning business and the companies using this technology will do a better job cleaning your carpeting in general. There is no comparing the wand and the 360i Rotovac. Simply put, if you want your carpet cleaning company to really turn your head with their cleaning habits; chose a company that use the Rotovac technology for standard carpet steam cleaning procedures.

The history of carpet cleaning and carpet cleaners is very unique. My Carpet Pal residential and commercial cleaning company have invested a lot of time and resources in advance technology and cleaning tools in general. We use only the best tools and provide the best services for your home and business cleaning needs.

Simple Design Sees Success For Ace Sheds

When buying a shed the cost always becomes important but that is probably even more relevant in these times of austerity. The major manufacturers of wooden sheds have realised this and have adapted their market range to suit all pockets and with a little careful selection it is possible to buy a very good shed at a very good price.

The Sussex Pent Garden Shed is one of these designs but it is also one which will help the buyer by giving a good quality shed at a reasonable price. The design is a simple pent shape which means that the front is high and the back lower and the roof is a flat roof sloping down at an angle. To be exact this is not the only configuration possible because it is now possible to configure the modern shed to many different ways. The roof can slope from back to front or front to back or side to side, the door can be put into any side and at either end and the windows can be similarly altered according to the wishes of the purchaser. It requires a little thought to get the best configuration for a person’s garden. While not expensive all the garden sheds have all the woodwork pressure treated for protection against rot and disease, an invaluable feature.

The side panels use feather edge boarding, which while not the strongest is perfectly adequate and will last a long time if looked after, the roof is covered in a green mineral felt and again this will last but may need recovering in due course.

This simple shed design can be bought in a range of sizes from 4 feet x 4 feet up to 14 feet by 8 feet and it is recommended that time is taken to get the best size for the application. The small shed can be ideal to resolve the problem of small scale storage for items only relating to the garden; to the larger wooden summer houses which can also double as a workroom and storage area. Time should be taken to decide on what size and configuration is required, firstly because there are cost differences in the choice and also because firstly it has to be looked at daily for a long time and secondly it needs to be suitable for the purpose for which it has been purchased. Get it right and it becomes an invaluable resource.

0800 Repair Serves Up A Range Of Appliance Repair Services For Budding Chefs

Cooking programmes have become one of the staples of daytime and primetime television in recent years. Shows such as MasterChef create dishes that many of us would love to reproduce, but probably never will, while celebrity chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Rick Stein and the Hairy Bikers use their programmes to cook food that viewers can at least attempt to knock up at home.

Having the right equipment however is vital, and 0800 Repair, the UK’s leading appliance repair specialist, has reminded anyone planning to get their teeth into cooking gourmet meals at home, of the importance of having kitchen equipment that is up to scratch.

Having a fridge that doesn’t chill food properly, or an oven with a faulty thermostat, can stop a chef in their tracks and ruin what could potentially have been a great meal.

Paul Feek, Managing Director of 0800 REPAIR, said: “There’s nothing better than delicious, healthy meals cooked at home, but in order to get a finished article that you can be proud of, you need to have the right equipment to hand.

“A faulty oven, fridge, freezer or hotplate can turn simple tasks into marathon efforts and that’s not what you want when you’re trying to find your feet in the kitchen. Even if appliances are still working, if they’re not performing properly then you’re likely to have problems. 0800 Repair carries out cooker repairs and fridge repairs in homes up and down the country every day, and we regularly get feedback from customers saying how much of a difference it makes to have an appliance that works properly.”

Chester-le-Street-based 0800 Repair is one of the largest professional appliance repair companies in the UK, with fully-qualified engineers based all over Britain. All the work they carry out is backed by a no quibble guarantee and so homeowners can book a repair service with complete confidence.

Trees around the House Cut Electricity Bills upto 30%

There’s something about trees that a lot of people don’t know about: Trees can help a household save up to 30 percent of energy consumption, said the US Forest Service Center for Urban Forest Research. It only takes the right placement of the trees to reduce electricity bills, especially during the hot summer. If you have plans of engaging in tree planting in Kansas City, MO, consult a tree service company for advice on what areas around your house are the best location for your trees.

The benefits one gets from trees every day are many. Trees protect us from the sun by providing cooling shade, they block the chilling winter winds, they provide shelter to birds and wildlife, they purify the air, they prevent erosion of the soil, they clean the water, and they provide beauty and grace to homes and communities. For example, in Chicago, the city’s more than 3 million trees reduce air pollution by almost 900 tons annually, or a benefit of $6.4 million every year, said the Forest Service. In Portland, Ore., trees planted near and in front of a house add almost $9,000 to the property’s selling price. Planting trees in strategic places not only conserves energy and reduces electricity bills, it also helps fight global warming.

Before starting on a tree planting in Kansas City, MO, learn these important tips to enjoy the most benefits from your trees:

Deciduous Trees

The best place for deciduous trees is on the east and west sides of your house. Deciduous trees are those that lose their leaves. If they are planted on your house’s west side, they will keep your home cool during summer and allows the sun to warm you house during winter. This results in reduced energy use, says the US Department of Energy. If planted on the west, east and northwest areas of your house, large deciduous trees provides soothing shade from sun’s summer heat, thus reducing the cost of air conditioning by up to 35 percent.

Evergreen Trees

The best area to plant trees is on your house’s northern and north-western sides. After their leaves fall, they allow sun to pour through their branches and warm your house in winter. When tree planting, don’t plant evergreens on your home’s southern side because they will block sunshine in winter. Instead, evergreen conifer windbreaks must be planted on your house’s north and northwest sides as cold winter wind breakers.

Tree Spraying: Keeping Your Fruit Trees Healthy

The importance of spraying your fruit trees should not be underestimated. Spraying, along with other tree services such as pruning and trimming, protects trees against pests and diseases, thus keeping them healthy and strong and maximizing their fruit-bearing capabilities.

Tree spraying in Birmingham, AL can be done with the help of a professional tree service company, or you can do it on your own. Either way, you need to know some basic information on how to spray your trees the right way.

First thing to know are the tools to be used in tree spraying. The use of proper tools and equipment makes the job easier to do and faster. Choose a sprayer that is of excellent quality. You can visit any store that sells farming tools and inquire more about tree spraying equipment. You will not go through all the hassle if you decide to hire experts in tree spraying.

Choosing the Type of Spray

You can choose from any of the several spray products available in the market today. Of these products, the most commonly used are the organic type, usually made from mineral oil, which is good for suffocating pests. Sulphur and copper also work pretty well against fungus. But avoid using sulphur products on apricot trees. Also wait for thirty days from the time you used oil spray before using sulphur spray products.

How to Spray Fruit Trees

Tree spraying should be done during a calm weather. The spray will be blown away by wind, wasting your investment. In a calm day, you can get a thorough covering of your trees, from the tip of the branches to the trunk’s base. In spraying, cover the area under the tree. Also spray the root area. If you are spraying near a pond, make sure there will be no spray particles that drift into the water. Sprays are mostly poisonous to fish. And to protect yourself, wear glasses and gloves. Chemicals, even if you are using organic ones, may cause some amount of harm.

Choosing the time of the year to do your tree spraying is important. Expert tree spraying companies know when the best time is to do tree spraying. Check the climate in your locality. The best time to do tree spraying in Birmingham must depend on what particular part of the year that pests attack trees.

Generally, though, winter is a good time to do an oil spray because the trees are leafless and dormant, an anti-fungus spray before the opening of flower buds and another spraying after the petals of flowers have dropped.

Tree Planting Tips: Ensuring the Survival of Your Trees

Planning is important if you want your trees to survive after planting. Planting a tree is not as simple as digging a hole, putting a seedling in it and watching it grow. There are tree-planting techniques to follow to ensure the survival of your trees.

If you have no experience in tree planting yet, it is best that you consult any of the several expert tree service companies in your area. If you are tree planting in Durham, you also need to visit your local tree authorities for any tree planting ordinances or regulations that you need to follow and requirements that you need to comply with. Tree planting has a long-time effect on an area, and local authorities would definitely want to know about your plans.

Planning

The four basic elements needed for a tree to grow are sunlight, water, nutrients and space to grow. Here are some tips related to this aspect of tree planting:

Conduct an ocular survey on the area where you will plant your trees. Identify the type of soil. Knowing the type of soil is important because it tells you what type of trees grows best in the area. If you are tree planting in Durham, go to the local forestry office or any related agency to inquire about the types of trees that grow best in Durham. Your local authorities can also assist you, especially if your tree planting project will have an impact on the general public.

Planting

If you are planning to plant your trees in your property, choose an area with sufficient space for your trees to grow. You must know the growth potential of your trees. When fully grown, the trees must not be so big as to pose risks to power and utility lines and other properties nearby. Don’t plant your trees too close to each other, or they will compete for water, sunlight, space and nutrients, which will affect their growth and health.

Timing

Tree planting in Durham, and elsewhere for that matter, must follow the right timing. A tree is best planted when it is dormant. Most trees are best planted in the spring when the ground is free of frost and just before flower buds break open. If not, do your planting in autumn when the leaves are falling off and flower buds are prepared for the freeze-up.
