Never, ever, EVER leave your dog in a hot car!

Make sure your pet always has access to fresh drinking water and shade! 

Try to keep your pet off of hot asphalt!

To play it safe you could always just get your pet a hammock of their own and let them enjoy the warm summer from a nice safe shady spot in the yard!

IT'S SUMMER.  Well almost.  Technically summer begins June 21st but come on!  IT'S SUMMER!  Maybe it's not ninety degrees-slip and slide-popsicle-dog days of summer but it's also not shades-closed-movie marathon-blanket on the couch weather.  It's sunroom weather!

Don't delay.  Turn your room from this before to this after.  Enjoy the sun!  

GrandView will provide you with multiple sunroom and patio room enclosure ideas to help determine the perfect custom sunroom that fits your needs.  Don't spend another minute hiding out in the four walls of a sun-less room!

Did you know that Zillow features homes that go head-to-head to see which reader's like best?  They're not just 'regular' homes though, these homes are unique and/or architecturally above and beyond the norm!  You can view and vote on the home you like best.  


Wet basements are a problem.  No one could possibly argue that fact.  Figuring out what is causing the problem can become a full time job. There are some common causes and those are the places to begin investigating if your basement is wet.  

Gutter downspouts that discharge water directly at foundation walls frequently cause problems.

Poor grading is another common problem around foundations.

Drain tile that is plugged or filled with tree roots can create a huge problem.

As we said, wet basements are a problem and it's not always easy to figure out on your own. And often, even if you pinpoint the cause, the fix isn't something you want to or should handle yourself.  It's time to bring in the experts.
