Now is a good time to check out the roof to see if there are any missing shingles or loose gutter pipes before fall and winter storms make their appearance.

New technology allows woodgrain patterns to be applied to glass and then used in places like bathrooms, where using wood was not an option before because of the humidity. This makes bathroom cabinets, such as the double sink cabinet in this picture, look more like wood furniture.

YOU LOVE YOUR SCREEN PORCH

BUTâ&#x20AC;Ś

YOU HATE YOUR SCREEN PORCH So you have this love hate relationship with your screen porch. You love the outdoor sights, sounds and smells, but you hate the mess. In the spring and summer, your furniture and carpet get wet and dirty. The wind blows the newspaper out of your hands. In the fall and winter its cold out there where you love to be and you have to shovel the snow out and cover the furniture or haul it to the attic. Or you get the plastic and staple gun out and build a temporary barrier. Maybe you have Plexiglas that you put up. Either way, if there is a nice day youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck, because either way you have to wait until spring to take it all down again. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be great if you could make better use of that space? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great, relaxing place to hang out, that is as long as the temperature is perfect, the wind isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blowing too hard and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not raining or snowing.

With the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eze-Breezeâ&#x20AC;? sliding panels, you can have the best of both worlds. You can continue to love the outdoor feeling that your screen room gives you. But now you control the outdoor elements, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eze-Breezeâ&#x20AC;? sliding panels are custom made to fit the existing openings in your screen porch. They transform your screen porch into a three season room that can be completely closed, opened to give you 75% of your original screen area, or anywhere in between. All you have to do is call for a free in home estimate or visit our website. We will not take more then 20 minutes of your time. That 20 minutes could be the best investment of time you have spent since you purchased your home.
