5 things you need to get done around the house before summer starts

Ah, the heat. Barbecues, pool days and roadtrips are on the horizon. If you are lucky, work slows down and you have more time to relax and spend quality time together with your loved ones.

All that starts at home. Before you get your feet up on some summer fun, you need to check a few things off your to-do list. With the right help, it’s not that much work.

It has been my misfortune to find people to help me around the house over the years. All that changed when I downloaded the Angie app. Angie, the sponsor of My National Radio, takes all the hassle and frustration out of getting the right people to work around the house.

your summer checklist
When you have a home, the chores never end. This summer, here are a few to consider tackling.

Get your pool in tip-top shape. If you don’t maintain your pool regularly or you’re getting lethargic, don’t go by another month. This is one place where waiting can come back to bite you.

Check your window and door gaskets, seals and screens. Summers can certainly bring heat as well as monsoons and other storms. Don’t let money leak through your windows all summer long.

Make deck or patio repairs. Rusted nails, shattered wood and cracked concrete don’t make for a cozy hangout spot in the summer. At the very least, I bet your outer area could use a good pressure wash.

Has anyone inspected your AC unit? There is a shortage of air conditioners across the country right now, and the last thing you need is your dying at the peak of summer. Have it checked out now so you can be sure it will last you all season long.

Update your outdoor lights and other fixtures. You don’t want anyone tripping during your next night’s barbecue.

Find professionals the easy way

In the past, I’ve spent time asking friends for recommendations, looking through lists and websites, and scanning reviews I never trusted. what a waste of time.

Then I downloaded Angie. I only told Angie what I needed, how often I needed it and where I was located. Bingo! Just like that, fixed prices came from three different landscaping companies. Get this: The price I was paying for weekly landscaping dropped 27%. This is a big savings. The best part was that the whole process took me less than 10 minutes and was free.

I also loved being able to see real reviews from real people. On Yelp, Google, or many other sites you end up with, those reviews are exaggerated, fake and not otherwise credible. As with Angie, only anyone who has interacted with a supporter can leave a review. This means that you are not going to sift through fake reviews to find out who you can trust. I like that.

happiness, guarantee

When you book and pay with Angie, you are covered by their happiness guarantee. They cover your projects up to the full purchase price, plus limited damage protection. It’s unreliable, and there’s no way to get it using Yelp or landing on some random contractor’s website. When was the last time you were really happy with a home repair or project?

Name your project and Angie will step in and help you get it all done in a jiffy.

The easiest way is to download the Angie app for your phone in the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Stop being afraid to tackle home repairs or remodels. The next time you think about fixing something or finally think of a home project, you might smile. Angie will do it for you. you will be happy. I am!
