Weather is unpredictable in Kansas and this season has been particularly indecisive. After some brief moisture, we seemed to return to some higher temperatures, which has caused many to put off home winterizing tasks. With an icy January, many are regretting that now. But it’s not too late to perform some winter home maintenance. You can still protect your belongings from damage from the cold and ice this season while lowering your utility bills by increasing your home's efficiency.

K-State football fan Michele Hawk of Salina had plenty to be excited about following the Wildcats’ victory against the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday, Nov. 30.

When Scott & Leigh Ann Bowman bought their home north of Manhattan, Kansas 9 years ago, they knew they had a fixer upper on their hands.

With the high amount of moisture we have seen this year, many are finding out just how important high quality and well-maintained gutters are to protecting their home. Gutters that aren’t doing their job can actually cause long lasting damage to your home, including foundation problems, roof and wall damage, mold, and flooding. 

When choosing siding for your home, there are a lot of factors to consider, and more options than you can count: from aluminum, wood, engineered wood, stucco, synthetic stone, vinyl, steel, fiber cement, just to name a few.

Often, we encounter customers who have known their windows are damaged for a long time, but it just hasn’t been a priority to replace them, that is until more obvious signs of damage appear such as water leaking during a rainstorm, or the window being non-functional.
