Preparing Your Home For Vacation

The heat is on! June means school is soon coming to an end, and summer vacations are right around the corner. As a homeowner, responsibility calls and there are many things to consider before departing for a long weekend, a week or longer. WWUD (what would Uniform do)! Well, we’ve put together a list of items you might want to consider checking off your list before packing up the car and heading out on your next adventure. CHUCK IT. We recommend throwing away all the food that will expire while you're away. No one wants to come home to a smelly fridge or food that you can’t eat. Try not to leave the fridge completely empty though, keep some water jugs or canned drinks because a f…

The Power of Neighbourliness

Have you ever considered the importance of being neighbourly? No matter where we live – townhouses, detached homes, condos, apartments – we all have neighbours. And there’s a lot to be said for how (and how often) we interact and connect with them. Neighbourliness has been on the decline in recent years, and this is unfortunate but not irreparable. Long work weeks, both parents working, over-programmed kids and the pervasiveness of digital media are all reasons for the weakening of relationships with our neighbours, but there are things we can do to strengthen these bonds. And they’re really quite simple. Introduce yourself. We may be stating the obvious here but all of us…

Welcome Spring! Grab Your Home Maintenance Checklist

Take a deep breath of that fresh spring air because winter is behind us, and we’ve all got an extra “spring” in our step! As the ice and snow melts away, now is really the best time to do a full inspection on the exterior of your home for any damage that the winter weather may have caused. This is also a good time to get your warm weather units (i.e. your air conditioning unit, lawn mower and lawn care items) ready for summer. While you’re checking, and inspecting, don’t forget to test your interior smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors! In Canada, there are about 24,000 house fires each year. In fatal, preventable house fires, more than 1/3 of the homes didn’t have a wor…

In the design of today’s modern homes, accommodating for guests is a factor homeowners and builders are giving careful consideration to so that hosting your friends and family will be a pleasure. A Room of Your Own Today’s new homes are going above and beyond the simple guestroom. Instead, people are outfitting their basements with guests in mind. High ceilings, LED lighting, fireplaces and ensuite baths, are all giving the nearby hotel a run for its money. And the comfort and convenience isn’t just limited to the guests. Hosting a guest in a basement suite makes lif…
