Deterring theft with a security

A security motion light isn’t just to deter theft, it has other benefits. When activated, it will help provide visitors light to see a pathway or door. These lights also give homeowners the convenience of not having to look in the dark for a light switch or keys to open a door. Motion lights may also help to identify guests as they walk to an entry way, or cars as they drive up a driveway. Alternative Electric offers free assessments and estimates. We can help advise a homeowner on placement of lights and areas that may be covered through the motion sensor. So don’t be left in the dark, give Alternative Electric a call at 630-6741 or 2853663.

the home and no one present, this is the perfect time for a burglar to strike. So what can we do to protect our family and home? Installing a security motion light fixture, may help deter unwanted visitors. A security motion light, when activated, will light up dark areas of the property. This could make unwanted visitors visi-

ble to homeowners and their neighbors. It also could deter theft because criminals don’t want to be seen and identified. When vacationing or just out, these lights will give outsiders a sense that someone may be home. When they are activated, a criminal may think that a homeowner heard a noise and manually turned on the light.

HAWAIIRENOVATION our hurricane insurer wants to pay for strengthening your house and particularly your garage door and open carport and lanais with those airplane winglike roofs. Longtime Hawaii residents remember the November 1983 Hurricane Iwa, and numerous winter storms with tropical cyclone winds over the years. Granted we are all a little guilty of “disaster amnesia” this year. But should we gamble w i t h Mother Nature and discount the possibility of a severe storm happening at any time? Think again, because it is documented proof that there is not a dwelling in our state anywhere that couldn’t use something minor or major for protection against the ravaging effects of a howling wind

An investment of from about $100 to $500 for late model houses, and $1,000 to $1,800 for pre-1991 houses will give you engineered protection, not to mention a good dose of peace of mind and a chance to avoid an unplanned average $8,500 out of pocket deductible in the fine print of your hurricane policy (not the same as for your underlying property and fire insurance).

Hurricane Protection

Doesn’t Cost — It Pays Who says? Well, just about everyone connected with disaster preparedness — federal, state and county Civil Defense officials, NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra-

sion of General Engineering and General Contractor HPS Construction Services Ltd. “We have inspected over 3,000 houses and condos in our nearly 20 years specializing in storm pro-

tection products and services,” says Gerry Peters of HPS. “We have never found one that didn’t need something to get it ready for our long overdue big storm hit, or even a winter tropical storm,” he added. “It is wise for safety, peace of mind, and financially to invest the relatively modest amount it cost to better prepare your dwelling. Check the fine print of your hurricane in-

surance policy. It is different than your fire protection terms. The average deductible is 2 percent or more of insured value, or $6,000-$10,000 before they have to give you even one dollar of claim money. “They have doubled it the last few years, and blamed it on Hurricane Katrina. However, nearly all of them will give you yearly reductions of $200 all the way up to $600 per

year for hardening your house’s wind resistance. In fact starting this year some of the new entrants into the State providing hurricane insurance are offering up to 50 percent off provided your house has hurricane protection. You can check the State Insurance Division website for a list of companies, calling 586-2790 or simply asking your agent to go shopping for you,” says Peters.

boil then cool down to an easy simmer faster than a Pro Style range. Yet it does all that in a way that won’t burn a piece of paper placed between the surface of the cooktop and the bottom of the pan! Look for induction cooktops from GE Profile, GE Monogram, Bosch, Thermador and Gaggenau. Once the cooking is done, a quiet, efficient dishwasher is the right tool for the cleanup. The Servco Showroom has several operational dishwashers that are so quiet;

they use a light to shine on the floor so you know the unit is washing. And, these dishwashers are so efficient they use less

water during the normal cycle than you would use when washing by hand for three minutes. Be sure to see these

Furniture

for all seasons

sland Style Furnishings in Kaneohe is proud to introduce Australis Leisure brand all-weather furniture. It was developed in Australia to withstand the harshest of environments. The key to its success was choosing durable and

I

appealing materials. Wood has the timeless classic beauty that everyone loves. Merbau wood (also known as kwila) is regarded as one of the most durable and stable timbers in the world. It grows in Northern Australia and across Southeast Asia, so it was well-known

as the wood of choice for making docks, decks and flooring. Merbau is the perfect wood for outdoor furniture. It is twice as hard as teak, which makes it resistant to abrasion, pitting or roughening. Prior to manufacture, the merbau is kilndried to a moisture content

of 12 percent. This stabilizes the structure of the timber so it doesn’t warp or crack. The furniture contains reddishbrown tannin, which gives it its characteristic color. This tannin makes the wood naturally rot-resistant and insect-proof. The furniture is easy to clean and maintain. Periodic application of a product is recommended, and will help preserve the beautiful appearance. All the hardware is corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel and nickel-plated

brass. Island Style Furnishings offers competitive pricing and a comprehensive 5year warranty. For more information on the company, visit the website, AustralisLeisure.com .au, or call 234-1129.
