I love the diversity of my work and the chance to help homeowners fix their annoying home problems... From that creak in the floor, to the old leaky window that lets in a draft, or that annoying back door that never shuts properly. I can fix it!
Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 25, 2015
The design, home performance, and handyman experts from Neil Kelly Company know a home from basement to attic and inside and out. And, no one understands a home and its repair needs better than Michael Rieger, who has been promoted to sales carpenter for the award-winning remodeling company’s Handyman Division.
“I love the diversity of my work and the chance to help homeowners fix their annoying home problems,” states handyman Rieger. “From that creak in the floor that wakes everyone, to the old leaky window that lets in a draft, or that annoying back door that never shuts properly. I can fix it!”
Rieger previously worked as a site supervisor for Neil Kelly Company overseeing the corrective measures used at the Cottages at Hastings Green condominiums. Prior to working at Neil Kelly, he was employed by Sean Gores Construction, providing construction-defect repairs to large, multifamily dwellings.
Rieger offers three tips for to prepare your home for the winter:
1. Window Weatherization: Now is the time to install those storm windows you kept in your garage over the summer, and make sure that any you left on during June and July are now shut all the way. If you have any window AC units, first drain them of water, and then put them away in storage until next summer. If your windows are in really bad shape, consider upgrading to energy efficient, triple glazed fiberglass windows, which will last for generations to come.
2. Thermostat Upgrade: Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat that lets you control the temperature when you’re at home and away. By turning on and off the heat at programmable times, you’ll save energy and lower your utility bill.
3. Freezing Faucets: Remove all garden hoses from your faucets and install insulated covers. If your home has an isolation valve, shut off water to the faucet and drain any remaining water. Better yet, consider replacing your old outdoor faucets with a frost free hose bib. You’ll never have to worry again.
