(From painting to refinishing floors, it never ends!) When it comes to saving money and preserving the value of your home, however, some home improvements are more urgent than others. Here are three high-priority improvements you should consider doing as soon as possible. First, let's get this out of the way: these projects aren't sexy or even fun. After you do them, you probably won't be inviting friends over to marvel at the upgrades. They are, however, improvements that will save you the most money in the long run, just in terms of resale value and keeping your home from falling apart.

Gutterglove Brings China Manufacturing Back to California

Source: PR Newswire   ROCKLIN, Calif., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocklin, California manufacturer Gutterglove, Inc., will bring its gutter guard manufacturing from China back to California by the end of second quarter 2012 and will finally be able to say its products are "Made In The USA". This will infuse millions of dollars back into the Golden State, create new jobs, and hopefully set an example that other manufacturers can follow. CEO and President, Robert Lenney founder and inventor of the multi-patented Gutterglove Gutterguard, started manufacturing his gutter cover in 2003. "Originally, my plans were to make the gutter guards in California, but because the parts used were from high end, high quality materials, they were very expensive to make," says Lenney. The company's gutter protection systems, 'Gutterglove' and the Do-It-Yourself version 'LeafBlaster' are made from aluminum extrusions and a fine stainless steel micro-mesh. They are installed on roof gutters and designed to keep ...

Spring Gutter Cleaning Tips

Media Source: forresidentialpros.com By: Robert Lenney It’s that time of year when a second gutter cleaning is almost always needed, especially with the new shedding of leaf debris from newly spring budding branches. Recent winter storms can also blow leaves, pine needles and roofing debris into gutters, causing potential rainwater overflow, which in turn can cause landscape erosion and water damage to homes. There are a variety of gutter cleaning tips that can bring sanity and safety into this tedious task. Some of the basics are listed below: Garden Hose Use a garden hose with a pistol-grip trigger spray nozzle. This style of spray nozzle comes with a pistol-grip trigger, allowing it to be easily hung over the front edge of the gutter while moving the ladder or while using a gutter scoop. Spraying out the gutter is generally best when most of the larger debris has already been removed with a gutter scoop. Spray toward the downspout (leader pipe) so the small, murky debris flows down the downspout. Ladd ...

Rainwater Harvesting: Washington Ahead of California

Media Source: Seattlepi   By Daniel Weintraub   With California on the edge of drought and water restrictions already beginning in some areas, the state might soon be looking toward an ancient practice that is attracting renewed interest around the world: rainwater harvesting.   In Australia, rainwater harvesting has been widespread for years, and in parts of the country it is the only source of fresh water. The government of Texas is an aggressive proponent of the idea. And in Washington's San Juan Islands, residents have overwhelmed a state agency that grants permits for the installation of harvesting systems.   But in California, the notion of capturing rainwater for use in irrigating landscape still has not reached the mainstream. Using rainwater for toilet flushing or even drinking is almost unheard of.   Dylan Coleman would like to change that. Coleman, from the town of Mount Shasta, is a consultant and seller of rainwater harvesting equipment. With his wife, he also r ...

Green Gutters

  Media Source: Sacramento News & Review By Jonathan Mendick  This article was published on 01.19.12. Icicle-free eaves. Related website: www.gutterglove.com   A Rocklin inventor is helping solve an age-old problem: icicles. Those dangerous spikes of ice hanging and dropping from eaves in the Sierra Nevada winters are no match for Robert Lenney’s invention, the Gutterglove IceBreaker. This green product uses a single heat cable built into a gutter guard, which radiates heat and melts all frozen things near it. This low-energy solution to preventing icicles also allows for snow harvesting, using the gutter to divert melted snow into a rainwater storage tank. There’s also a heatless option for those below the snow line this wet season.          

Icicles and Ice Dams Are No Match for a Heated Gutter Guard

Media Source: GutterGuardReview.com  Have you ever seen a home during winter with fresh fallen snow all around it, majestic frozen icicles hanging from the edges with snow covering the roof and thought “wow, what a beautiful winter home?” Well chances are if you’re seeing icicles, there is a much bigger issue going on behind the scenes. As most homeowners are well aware of, gutters tend be a necessary evil in protecting their homes from weather throughout the seasons. Gutters are important because they keep water away from the house and they help in keeping your basement dry. However; if it’s not a clog of twigs and leaves in the fall, it’s a barrier of snow and ice in the winter. Looking out for and maintaining your gutter system is an essential step in the long-term life of your home. It is particularly important during the winter season, especially in regions that tend to get into the sub-zero temperatures. Gutters in these regions have a more likely chance of freezing and creating an ice dam. An i ...
