Real Estate 05 7 14 Looking for a home improvement project that is both a shortand long-term investment? One easy upgrade that can help you save money on your energy bills today, as well as increase your home’s value in the future, is to replace your windows. But how do you know it’s time to give your current windows the boot? An annual performance check is good practice, say experts. “Virtually every building component in a home needs to be replaced at some point, and windows are no exception,” says Matt Minerd of Simonton Windows, a leading vinyl window and patio door manufacturer. With that in mind, Minerd is offering some do-it-yourself tips to discover how well your current windows and patio doors are functioning: • Examine the inside of your windows and patio doors for hot and cold “drafty” spots or areas. This indicates air infiltration, which can lead to reduced energy efficiency. • Check every window for adequate weatherstripping and caulking around the units, which help eliminate air infiltration and ensure a weather tight, secure seal. • Look for “burnt out” or faded areas on your furnishings and carpeting. This could indicate that harmful, damaging UV rays are entering your home through windows and glass doors. You may want to consider more energy efficient options containing Low E, which is a special glass coating designed to reduce heat transfer. • If your windows no longer open or close easily, or if they need to be propped open, it could mean key components within the units are damaged or need adjustment. It could also mean the unit needs to be replaced entirely. • If you have wood windows, look carefully at the frames for signs of rotting, warped wood or other problems with the frame itself. These are an indication the window has exceeded its lifespan. Should your evaluation turn up one or more problem areas, and it’s time to replace your windows, do your homework. While price is important, it shouldn’t be a sole decision factor, as functionality is a critical consideration. Look for low-maintenance materials that offer energy efficiency. For example, vinyl is an excellent insulator and many people choose low-maintenance vinyl frames with a Low E glass coating and an Argon or Krypton gas fill. These harmless gasses are denser than air and serve as an excellent thermal barrier. More information about energyefficient glass options is available at www.Simonton.com When the time is right, consider replacing your windows for a home with great long- and short-term returns on investment. -StatePoint HERMES INSURANCE The Insurance Texans Trust.® 940-458-4664 www.hermes-insurance.com Se Habla Español Home • Auto • Life EG Creating Customers For Life Ron Hebert & Lance Yuzbick 5 Real Estate The Results Team “Creating Customers For Life!” 05 7 14 940-898-8815 Ron Hebert REALTOR LD SO ® Yuzbick & Lance REALTOR ® W W EG E E C N IN N IT R S PI L 1..1 1 18 8 AC A CR RE E SOLD! 2608 Denison St. – Denton – $114,900 3 bed, 1 bath - COMPLETELY REMODELED inside & out in Nov. 2013.

The idea of spreading some Christmas holiday cheer during the summer was an easy decision. Gary Kuhatschek, Broker / Owner states, “The office tradition for having Santa meet with the kids has always been such an important part of RE/MAX Cross Country. It was decided what better way to give back than to hold a fundraiser for Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home in Denton.” RE/MAX Cross Country will be hosting a Celebration Gala on July 31, 2014 at Le Beaux Chateau in Flower Mound where they will host a visit from Santa, who will be refreshed from his Hawaiian vacation. Representatives from Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home and other VIP’s will be in attendance to thank everyone who contribut- ed to this worthy cause. Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home in Denton was the organization which was chosen out of many deserving charities in the area. This facility provides emergency shelter as well as long term residential care for children and adolescents. They also provide single parent family housing and support as well as counseling and other services to heal and strengthen families throughout the community. RE/MAX Cross Country has begun their fundraising efforts that will run throughout the spring into summer. They would like to thank First United Bank in Denton for their generous donation to kick off fundraising efforts to reach the goal of a $25,000 donation to Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home. Bill Winter, Mortgage Loan Consultant states, “First United Bank is proud to be a part of such a worthy cause. Giving back to the community is at the forefront of our goals.” Please stop by RE/MAX Cross Country at 1990 Justin Rd in Highland Village for their first ever parking lot rummage sale that will be held on Saturday, May 17th from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. (Proceeds will go towards Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home) For more information regarding this fundraiser and how you can donate, visit their website at www.rmccdfw.com or call 972-317-9586. • • • • • • FREE if you sell your house with me!

If improperly addressed, this can eventually cause serious property damage. You can prevent lawn drainage and landscape drainage concerns by optimizing the grading of your yard. Additionally, consider replacing impermeable surfaces, such as concrete, with materials that can absorb water, such as a vegetable garden, or gravel. A catch basin can be added to collect excess rainwater and irrigation. Above all, it’s crucial to collect excess water away from the area and disperse it in a safe manner. Your best bet is to install a drainage system. Basements and Crawl Spaces Rainwater runoff from your roof or landscape soaks into the ground and often collects near your home against basement walls, crawl spaces, or in the soil beneath your home’s foundation. Basement and crawl space flooding can lead to mosquito breeding, termite damage, dangerous mold and mildew growth, or worse, your foundation settling and cracking. Damp, musty smells and wet walls are signs that water is getting into your basement or crawl space. Don’t ignore the problem or attempt a quick-and-dirty solution that won’t correct the sit- uation long-term. Certain temporary fixes can actually make the problem worse. Luckily, there are do-it-yourself drainage kits available, such as Flo-Well and EZ-Drain, which are usually better performing and easier to install than a traditional, gravel dry well or French drain. However, when dealing with more complex drainage issues, consider hiring a contractor. “Just be sure to check online ratings and references to ensure you’re going with someone qualified and experienced,” stresses Larsen. Neighbor Runoff Water flows from higher to lower ground, so drainage problems are likely if your property is lower than neighboring properties. In general, neighbors are not responsible for water runoff onto your property unless alterations to their landscape have changed the natural flow of water. This unsuspecting threat can cause a variety of serious drainage problems. Larsen recommends visiting www.ndspro.com for free resources and videos, product recommendations, installation instructions, and links to local home improvement retailers where you can find the right tools. To speak to “Dr. Drainage,” directly, call 888-825-4716. Ignoring standing water in and around your home won’t make the problem disappear. By investing a moderate amount of time and money into smart home drainage solutions, you can help protect your property long-term. -StatePoint Prudy Bayer REALTOR® FM 367 CR 386 VALLEY VIEW 940-727-9161 firstname.lastname@example.org Bring your horses!

EG 12 Real Estate 05 7 14 EG Ways to update your home’s outdoor spaces 13 Are your home’s outdoor spaces a viable place to dine, relax and entertain? If not, consider making better use of your patio, balcony, yard or deck by prioritizing this home upgrade. “Your home’s outdoor spaces, like the rooms inside it, should be comfortable, attractive and designed for everyday living,” says Leah Drill, spokesperson for Bed Bath & Beyond. “Don’t underestimate the potential of these areas.” Drill is offering some tips for making your yard your favorite “room” of the house: • Weather resistance should be a top consideration when picking outdoor furniture. Rustresistant steel and tempered glass are both great options. Wood furniture should be properly treated to withstand the elements. For covered spaces, you have fewer limitations on materials. • Don’t sacrifice comfort or style for weather resistance -the two can co-exist. Use cushions and pillows to brighten modern décor and add comfort and style to chairs, chaises, loungers and benches. For example, Bed Bath & Beyond’s Wildwood Toss Pillows are easy to clean and are made using fabric that is resistant to mildew, fading and stains. • Shade is crucial. Be sure to create plenty of it with strategic vegetation and umbrellas. • Make your patio or deck feel more “homey” and add a splash of color with an outdoor rug. Check the tag to see if the rug is made of polypropylene, which offers staining, fading and mold resistance. Another great feature to look out for is UV resistance. • Don’t make your guests leave a great party to head inside every time they need a new beverage. Make your patio complete with an outdoor bar. • Give the space a centerpiece with a gas burning fire pit. It’s a great place for guests to gather. More outdoor home improvement inspiration can be found at www.BedBathAndBeyond.com. Whether you’re updating a small balcony or outfitting a spacious yard, there are plenty of ways to increase the comfort and functionality of your home’s outdoor spaces. -StatePoint Real Estate 05 7 14 EG 14 Real Estate 05 7 14 S EN D ERA T IT L E Our knowledgeable escrow officers are here to provide you with excellent service!
