Remove debris and maintain your eaves By Lori Larsen

Water damage caused by poorly maintained eavestroughs can be very costly and cause homeowners a great deal of inconvenience. “When eavestrough work is done properly they are out of sight and out of mind,” noted Camrose Eavestrough Service Jordan Isaac. “But once they start showing signs of wear and various other issues they can cause concerns and even frustration.” Isaac indicated the number one problem with eavestroughs is plugged gutters, and said they often receive calls from customers stating their eavestrough is sloping the wrong way. “This may very well be, but it’s rare. Eavestroughs, in time, collect debris such as shingle grit, leaves and many trees drop FHI 2018 – Page 4

seeds that can plug your eaves and cause water to spill over.” Isaac explained that eavestroughs can become plugged at any time, even after they have just been cleaned or newly installed. “There are various leaf protection systems available,” he said. “Some are more effective than others. We’ve discovered which are healthy options, and though some can be quite costly, they bring peace of mind and years of no maintenance.” When cleaning your eaves begin by having a strong and sturdy ladder and ensure there is someone assisting that can help stabilize the ladder and safely pass you equipment from the ground. Starting at one end of the eavestrough, scoop all debris into a bucket. Downspouts should be checked thoroughly to ensure

there is nothing blocking them from allowing full flow to the ground and away from the foundation of your home. After eaves and downspouts have been cleared of all debris, use a hose with running water to flush through the eaves. Repair any holes or cracks immediately and replace broken eavestrough spikes. “Another thing to keep in mind is our winter climate,” reminded Isaac. “The freeze and thaw can reap havoc on gutters. Eavestrough can freeze over and form ice below on sidewalks and steps.” Isaac suggested a few precautionary measures that can save costly repairs and ensure your home is protected from water damage. “Keep the roof clear, and have eavestrough maintenance done in the fall.

Plan your hot tub purchase with plenty of research By Murray Green

Russ Greipl of R&D Hot Tubs checks the electrical components to make sure they are ready for customers.

Buying a hot tub can be overwhelming, given the number of styles and added features available on the market today. As with many major purchases, perhaps the best way to approach buying a hot tub is to put together a checklist of the specifications and features you want and then rate the hot tubs you see accordingly. It is important to find a business where you can trust the staff and feel comfortable with your purchase. R&D Hot Tubs in Camrose is an industry leader that supplies a wide range of quality products. “Look for hot tub manufacturers that have been in business for a while and have a proven record of reliability. The Internet is a great place to start. Check out the company’s website and do a

quick search for independent reviews of their products and warranty work,” said Doneal Greipl of R&D. “Investigate whether the products they offer are covered by a reasonable warranty. Look for companies that don’t charge extra for trip fees when doing a warranty call. Also be careful of the small print; a lot of warranties are pro-rated in the industry. A good warranty would consist of a 10 year structural warranty, five year acrylic surface and three year parts and labour warranty.” Likely the most appealing element of a hot tub is its massage capabilities. When added to the soothing feel of hot water, it can truly make or break your hot tub experience. As such, it is important to learn as much as you can about this aspect before buying. The jets are the most vital vari-

able of the massage equation. Look for jets that do not have any bearings in them, as these can corrode quickly. No matter what hot tub you choose, you need to make sure it is easy to service. The last thing you want to do is pull the hot tub out of a deck and flip it on its side every time service is required. Ask the salesperson to show you where technicians can access vital systems (and keep these details in mind when considering where to place the hot tub in your backyard). When it comes to hot tub maintenance, there are two primary factors you need to address – filtration and disinfection. Consider location for your hot tub. Gazebos are a great addition to any backyard that requires some privacy, protection from the elements or entertainment. FHI 2018 – Page 13

Electrical wiring upgrades to consider when renovating By Murray Green

Some electrical wiring problems are not unsafe, but they can be bothersome, making them the perfect candidates for extra projects during a home renovation. Whether your electrical wiring is really old or it just got installed within last decade, it can be dated and ready for some upgrades if it’s causing problems. “Because much of your electrical system is concealed behind the walls, it can be easy to overlook when planning a remodel. Consider home electrical wiring upgrades along with all the other items on your home renovation list. When completing a home renovation that involves opening walls and ceilings for other reasons, you have the perfect opportunity to make electrical upgrades. Ensure you plan for both current needs and what you might need in the future,” said

Clint Mitchell, master electrician at Amp Contracting. If your family has grown, your requirements for electrical power has probably grown even quicker. A home renovation is the right time to install additional outlets on each wall. Families have different needs for extra outlets, such as a home office with some computers and printers, older childrens’ rooms with televisions and video games. If you find yourself using multiple power strips and extension cords for your everyday tasks then it’s time to get an electrical upgrade. Your professional electrician can include extra outlets in your renovation plan, solving the trouble of having to unplug some appliances before plugging in others. It’s a very simple task for your electrician to switch out one type of outlet for another during a home renovation work, but it’s

essential for your family’s safety and may even be required for a renovation, depending on your local building code. “Homes built prior to the 1980s, in particular, create issues with getting insurance because of the electrical wiring in the home,” added Clint. “An electric service upgrade is usually recommended or needed to increase the capacity of the existing electrical service. With all the new appliances and modern devices we now have in our homes, we find that older homes just don’t have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. As a result, a service change is required.” Most vintage homes will need to upgrade the electrical wiring at some point. The appliances and technology we own now demand a certain level of reliable power.

Clint Mitchell of Amp Contracting adds electrical boxes to an older home undergoing renovations in Camrose. FHI 2018 – Page 23

Securing your home By Lori Larsen

One of the most important features of any home is its security and the first line of defence should be a high quality locking system. When selecting locks the following are a few guidelines for selecting the most efficient locking system. Determine the type of lock you need to have installed and will best work for the situation. Locks available for homes include handle sets, deadbolts, doorknob sets, smart locks (digital locking connected to your cellular phone, door levers and coded entry locks. “Deadbolts are a must,” suggests Camrose Locksmithing & Signs locksmith Eric Labrosse. “Deadbolts make it much harder to break into your home or business.” Labrosse reminds residents that most burglaries occur between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when most homeowners are away from their homes. Many locks come with a grading that measures the amount of security they offer, strength and durability and locking grades should always be considered. Consider the location for the lock before deciding on which one you will install. For obvious reasons locks used on the exterior of your home will require higher grade ratings and must also be able to withstand weather and frequent usage. Some locks have tamper proofing built into them, while other locks come equipped with anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-pick features improving the overall security of the locks and your home.

Eric Labrosse of Camrose Locksmithing & Signs works on repairing padlocks that can be used for securing sheds or other out buildings.

Smart locks are keyless entry locking systems, some relying on the technology, such as connections directly to your cellular device, that can unlock or lock your doors, record times of entry and exit, and even allow you video monitoring of who is entering or exiting. “If you have keyless locks only give the codes out to a few people you really trust,” noted Labrosse adding that home security monitoring systems can also be used to increase your protection. Exterior doors installation should be done by professional locksmiths. Installation may require changes to the door and door jam itself. Whenever you purchase a new-to-you home be sure to factor into your budget the costs of having all exterior locks on your home and detached garage and shed locks changed.

Before you renovate…

Consider a new home from Zetsen Master Builders!

Most people completely underestimate the cost of renovating a home! Renovation costs are typically significantly higher than the cost of new construction. After all, you must factor in demolition, trips to the dump, retrofitting and the inevitable…taking the renovation much further than you ever envisioned prior to going into the project. With over three decades of experience in the field, we suggest this – unless you live in an area that means the world to you, or unless your lot has an irreplaceable view or other significant advantage for you, build or buy new in lieu of renovating. It’s far more cost effective, your home will be far more energy efficient and you’ll enjoy full warranty, inside and out! Envision the compelling advantage of not living in mess and disruption for months, and ohhh, there’s nothing quite like the smell, feel and pride of a brand new Zetsen Master Builders’ home! Now is a great time to have us build your first or next home. If you require financing,

rates are near a historical low, but are widely expected to increase moderately over the next year. We have a great selection of hand-picked lots in desirable Creekview and Valleyview West subdivisions. We’ve built a great team of reputable tradespeople ready to tackle your starter or dream home. Zetsen Master Builders’ design team creates masterpieces from scratch or will build any stock plan. We invite you to take a tour through any of our award-winning homes. We know you’ll be impressed.
