Care for a house, it becomes your home--a safe haven for the comfort of your family. 

Got peeling paint? Crumbling bricks? Rotting porch columns? Not sure which way to jump first?

Wish you had a brother in the business who could tell you what's what and who's who? Well, I'm not your brother, but you can still count on me for objective advice not tainted by the construction industry's marketing hype and hidden agendas.
