It's the dog days of summer and all you want to do is lay in a hammock and occcasionally move to tip back something cold. We hear ya! Unfortunately there are some things you should make time to do even during these lazy hazy days.
1. Replace Air Conditioner Filter
The air filter on your heating and cooling system needs to be replaced every 1-3 months. If you started the season with a new filter it's probably time to change it.
2. Replace the Weather-Stripping on Your External Doors. Keep the cooled air in!
3. Clear the Gutters and Inspect the Roof. Summer storms can do a number on those very integral parts of our homes.
And when you're done, hop back in the hammock and grab a cold one!

A new roof is a very big investment. You want to make sure you get it right the first time. Our suggestion is to hire someone who only does roofing. Our suggestion is to hire Tony the Roofer.
With Tony the Roofer, the roofing estimate is a simple process. Give them a call, after a short phone interview they will make a trip to your home and inspect your roof system, generate a complete quote and mail it to you within 48 hours of your initial call. You don't even have to be home when they come to inspect your roof if you don't want to be (or can't be).
Check out their gallery here. A picture can say it better than we can...but we'll try...Tony the Roofer does an AMAZINGLY professional job!

ASPHALT PAVING SERVICES
Everblak is proud to offer a full suite of paving contractor services. These services include (from the Everblak website):
Resurfacing. We’ll shim the low areas with a new layer of asphalt, conduct necessary repairs, and add a few inches of asphalt to the whole lot. This is the best choice when the existing asphalt is mostly in good shape.
Replacement. If the asphalt has a good base but extensive wear and tear on the surface, we’ll grind away the damaged layer and pave it over again.
Full-depth replacement. If necessary, we have the tools to completely remove, re-grade, and re-pave a parking lot.
Installation. If your property has a parcel of land that you’d like to turn into a parking lot, we’re happy to start from square one. We’ll perform a series of checks to ensure that the parking lot will be level and drain properly, and we’ll pave the land with the best asphalt available.
A good recommendation is one of the best tools when choosing a contractor. Jim Salmon highly recommends Everblak!
