Just as the sun’s UV rays can be harmful to your skin, they can also be harmful to your home. Without proper protection from UV rays, the sun can damage both the interior and exterior of your house. Often this change is gradual and you won’t notice until it’s too late to correct. If your house gets a lot of sun, keep these tips in mind to protect your investment.

Cover Your Windows

Start blocking the sun’s UV rays where they enter your house—the windows, particularly those that face east and west, as well as skylights. Utilize UV-blocking blinds, solar shades or curtains to prevent the sun from fading your possessions. For an invisible UV blocker, opt for clear window films that cling directly to the window and block 99 percent of UV rays.

Choose Furniture and Flooring Wisely

In your most sun-drenched rooms, go for light-colored furniture and flooring as they are less likely to show signs of fading. If the style of the room permits (such as a sunroom), consider UV-resistant outdoor furniture. Rotate rugs periodically and treat hardwood floors using pigment-based stains and finishes with UV inhibitors to resist fading from the sun.

Shield Photos

Treasured family photos and artwork can fade with long-term exposure to UV rays. Place your pictures strategically to avoid direct sunlight. For those extra-special pieces, use museum-grade protective glass or a UV-blocking acrylic. Archival protection sprays are also available to protect canvas prints.

Protect the Exterior

A home’s exterior can take a beating if constantly exposed to the sun, which can lead to faded siding, warped woodwork and deteriorated roofing. To combat these issues, plant trees and bushes or install a trellis to provide shade for your home. When updating your exterior choose UV-resistant siding and paint. Consider a silicone roof coating to reflect UV rays and keep temperatures down in your home. Don’t forget your deck; clean, stain and seal your deck regularly to reduce fading and warping from the sun.

Whether you use your ladder frequently or only pull it out when you clean the gutters, practicing safe ladder habits is extremely important. The American Ladder Institute reports that nearly 200,000 ladder-related ER incidents occur each year. Take the same care and precaution with ladders as you would take when using other household tools.

  • Choose the right type of ladder. Consider the height you must reach, the weight the ladder will hold and the area where the job will be completed when deciding what type of ladder to use. Extension ladders and straight ladders can reach high levels, but must be leaned against a solid surface. Platform or step ladders are easy for one-person use and have a hinged design with a top shelf for storage. Multi-purpose ladders provide versatile set-up options. Ladders come in a variety of materials, like wood, metal and fiberglass. Select the type of material that is best suited to the environment in which you will be working.
  • Ensure a solid foundation. Ladders should always be placed on a firm surface before climbing. If you are using a platform ladder, make sure it is completely open and locked into place. If you are using an extension ladder, securely fasten the base level to the upper access level. Don’t forget to block doorways or entry points to prevent people or pets from walking into the ladder and knocking you off of it.
  • Climb safely. When using a ladder, follow general ladder safety guidelines. Ladders should not be used in rain, wind or other inclement weather. Ensure three points of contact on the ladder at all times (either two hands and one foot or one hand and two feet). Keep your body inside of the rails and always face the ladder when climbing. Do not climb with tools or other items in your hands and only allow one person on a ladder at a time. If you can’t quite reach what you are working on, don’t extend yourself too far; climb down and reposition the ladder. 

Summer is here, and while the summer of 2020 will be unlike any we’ve experienced before, you can still find ways to celebrate the season. Take advantage of the warm weather and let the summer sun brighten your days.

Feast on a summer dish. Enjoy the fresh fruits and vegetables of the season, like juicy strawberries, sweet cherries and perfectly buttered corn on the cob. Make good use of your grill with classic barbeque foods and eat outside as much as possible. Don’t forget dessert—nothing says summer like a big ice cream cone.

Select the perfect summer tunes. Certain songs just take you back. Create a playlist of songs that remind you of summers past or select an already created playlist from a music service. Search for top “songs of the summer” or turn on some reggae to go straight to the islands!

Get wet. The hot summer days almost beg for the cool relief of water. You don’t have to go for a swim to get wet, though. Have a water balloon fight with your kids, wade through a creek or head out on your boat. Research shows being near water really does make you happy, so go out and find some this summer.

Soak up the sun. We all know the importance of protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays, but spending time out in the sun can also be good for you. Your skin produces vitamin D, which keeps bones healthy, fights diseases and reduces depression, in response to sunlight. Get out for a walk, read a book outside or have a chat with your neighbors and you’ll reap the benefits of the sun.

Relive your childhood. In a time when your previously planned summer activities may not happen, take time to enjoy the summer as you did as a child. Catch fireflies, drink lemonade, play card games, run through the sprinkler and roast marshmallows. Be thankful for the little joys in life that continue throughout time.

Recipe Courtesy of: allrecipes


  • 1 (3 pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 quarts buttermilk 
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
  • 2 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder


Step 1 - Rinse the chicken, and cut the chicken breast halves in half horizontally to make 10 pieces in all. Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels. Combine the buttermilk, hot pepper sauce, and garlic in a large plastic zipper bag. Add the chicken pieces, and squeeze the air out of the bag, close it, and refrigerate overnight.

Step 2 - The next day, preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Step 3 - Heat the vegetable oil in a large, deep-sided skillet over medium heat until the oil shimmers but doesn't smoke. Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, sage, paprika, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Remove 2 or 3 pieces of chicken at a time from the buttermilk mixture, and press into the flour mixture until well coated. Shake off excess flour.

Step 4 - Fry 2 or 3 pieces of coated chicken at a time in the hot oil until the crust is golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes (chicken meat may still be pink inside). Drain on paper towels, and place into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Step 5 - Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

Awesome Experience . . .

"I had actually hired another company to remodel my bathroom, but ended up with such a miserable time with their process that I fired them before they got started. With that company, I was even expected to start paying on the loan before I even had any date set for it to begin. None of that happened here. They were honest, up front, and the work was wonderful."— Becky C.
