5 Things to Do Before Finishing a Basement in Chicago

Whether living in a bungalow in Lincoln Square or a split-level home in Des Plaines, many Chicago-area homeowners find that when the weather breaks, they begin to see past the dark, damp clutter of their unfinished basements to recognize the potential value of the extra space. They want to begin using that below-grade area confidently for storage, living and even entertainment purposes.

Perma-Seal Says Thank You: 10% OFF, up to $300, for the month of January

Tips for Your Home this Fall

Tips for Your Home this Fall

The temperatures in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana have been dropping every week, and that can only mean one thing… winter is right around the corner! While no one wants to think about sub-zero readings or snowstorms just yet, it is a good time to think about getting your home ready for the winter. In fact, autumn is the perfect time to prepare your home for cold weather!

There are several steps you can take to keep your house warmer and healthier. First, make sure your furnace or heating system is cleaned and serviced, as that’s something you really can’t afford to be without. Next, check your attic.
