  1. *Winterize hose bibs by turning off the valve for each. Open each hose bib, from the exterior, just enough to drain water.
  2. **Clear gutters to reduce icicle formation.
  3. *Close down crawl space vents to reduce cold air flow.
  4. ***Consider increasing floor insulation value. R19 is building code requirement. R30 keeps floors feeling cozier.
  5. **Check your attic's ventilation. Make sure your soffit vents are clear. This also reduces icicle formation and damaging, costly ice damming.
  6. *Check for drafts around entry doors. Feel a draft? Adjust door threshold or add weather stripping.
  7. ***Get your chimney professionally cleaned.
  8. ***Have your gas fireplace serviced. Remember to use cleaners for the glass recommended by the manufacturer.
  9. *Replace HVAC return air filters.
  10. *Test and/or replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

    Project: Master bath renovation

    Shower with Glass Tile

      

    Working with Villa Builders was a delight from start to finish.  My husband and I had a vision of what we wanted our Master Bathroom to look like, and Jeff Hall was able to take that vision and make it into a reality. 

     

    I had never worked with a design/build company before, so this was a different experience for me, and I was not sure what to expect.  What we got exceeded all of my expectations, and I could not be happier with the outcome. 

     

    From the first meeting, Jeff showed deep understanding, a vast array of ability, and the desire to help us bring to life our ideas.  Jeff came to our home a number of times in the beginning to talk through our ideas and to make sure we were comfortable with every step of the process. 

     

    Once we got started, each of the subs we worked with was courteous, timely, and neat.  At the end of each day, aside from the room being remodeled, it was difficult to tell we’d even had workers in the house.  I, especially, appreciated that, as coming home at the end of the day, the last thing I wanted to deal with was living in a construction zone.  Jeff’s subs worked long hours to ensure that the project stayed on schedule, and Jeff delivered a completed gorgeous product within the timeframe he promised. 

     

    I would highly recommend Villa Builders to anyone looking for professionalism, quality, and an endproduct that exceeds even the highest of expectations.
