Spring has Sprung and it’s time for a little home improvement…

Please remember to fill out an ARC application and get approval before you start those big projects.

It’s time to be a proactive homeowner


Here are a few tips to help you get started.

  • Test all smoke detectors.  Make sure they work properly and replace all batteries.
  • Check for roof damage.  Winter weather can cause even the best shingles to break or blow off.
  • Inspect siding. Look for cracks to prevent water damage.
  • Wash your windows. The best way to inspect a window is to clean it.  Even greater is that you can actually see out!
  • Tidy your garage.  Give those unwanted items away and feel good about your friends and neighbors making a surprise appearance.
  • Clean up any yard debris and fertilize your lawn.

Just give me the wine and no one gets hurt…

A special thanks to Minny Olson and Michelle Walker for planning and hosting the season’s first wine meet and greet.

  • Look for more Barrington Heights social events in the next newsletter.
