February Weather Alert!

The WEATHER outside is frightful, but the fire inside’s delightful.

While you’re dodging February’s winter weather it’s the perfect time to make your plans for that project you want and need to do in the spring or summer.
Painting, landscaping, outdoor patio, or a screened in porch. Or maybe your fireside dreams are bigger, such as upgrading bathrooms, remodeling your kitchen, or just go over the top and do the entire house.

A big project may sound overwhelming but with the proper planning, good advice and assistance from those in the field, this can be accomplished […]

Are You Prepared?

We hope the storm(s) are over.

Compared with other areas of the country, our area was very fortunate, with minimum loss of power and only a mild amount of damage. With this in mind, now is a great time to check our list to prepare for another storm. Water lines and other Plumbing, Electrical, Gutters, Roof leaks, Insulation, Windows, Doors, whatever will make you more comfortable.

Forgiveness

There’s so much to love about Christmas. There’s presents and trees, parades and cookies, Santa and elves, and great get-togethers with friends and families. And of course there’s the celebration of the birth of our Savior.

Christmas also brings with it a time of reflection and renewal. We are constantly reminded that our year is drawing to a close and we should stop and take inventory of ourselves, then offer up a resolution for the new year. What shall we improve upon? Shall we lose weight, quit smoking, get a new job, ask for a raise […]

Winter Weather Worries?

Charity begins at Home.

I have just today had my HVAC semi-annual-winter check up.
The contractor, by the way is a charter member of the Crescent Home Referral’s (CHR) team. He was scheduled and here promptly at 9:00 am. He performed, according to our maintenance agreement, a long check list on the furnace and its gas burner, along with dating and replacing all the air filters. He was done in about two hours and left here about 11:00.

Now, I feel comfortable that when needed and as the temperature goes down, the heating system will […]

October’s Chill

The early blast of chilly air has us thinking about our windows. Will they be ready to keep out October’s early chill?

Your windows are only as good as their weather stripping and caulk. Your windows and doors can be the best asset of a house, but if they’re drafty, you might curse their existence. Apply fresh weather stripping, and you can save yourself money with lower heating bills, and reduce those annoying drafts.

Back to your Windows, the best asset of a house. There may be cases that the weather stripping is not the total answer. Perhaps […]

“Leave” it to Crescent

Fall in the Upstate of South Carolina reminds us why we live here. The crisp, glorious weather. Clemson Football. The way our gorgeous blue sky looks against the glorious colors of fall. The colors of all those leaves. And don’t forget Clemson Football.

Fall in Greenville, SC is a gorgeous time of the year but it also means there’s work to do.

This time of the year also means clogged rain gutters and stopped up down spouts. How does this happen? Easily. As all of these beautiful trees shed their leave (and twigs and such) all of that […]
