Since April 1st is coming up on Sunday, our Fun Fact Friday will take a look at the origins of the day. Research has found that no one really knows how or when or why it started. There are several theories depending on which site you look at. One belief is that it dates back to the 1500's when Romans were looking for wives and kidnapped neighboring countries daughters and convinced them to become Roman citizens (kinda morbid origins). Another belief is when France changed from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. Some people missed the memo and decided to celebrate "New Years" on April 1st (as was tradition) instead of January 1st and were called "Fish" (this was a degrading way to say someone was gullible and easily fooled). My favorite theory is that it signifies the changing of the season. The practical jokes symbolize frivolity that comes with youth and "rebirth" as the world comes back to life after winter. Whichever theory you choose to believe (if any), The Rick Porras Team hopes you have a great weekend and keep your practical jokes fun and safe! So know you know.

We hope you had a great weekend! Today on Maintenance Monday, we'd like to answer a FAQ. It may not be what you would consider "home maintenance", it is a topic related to maintaining the foundation of your home . So, what is a French Drain? Simply put, it is a drainage system designed to keep water from penetrating your foundation and creating problems. One of the biggest problems for foundations is water penetration. The best way to keep that from happening is to ensure proper drainage away from your structure. Sometimes, that can be as simple as building up the ground around your foundation to ensure that water can drain away instead of into your foundation. However, that may not be enough and you may have to install a drainage system, such as a French Drain or "Weeping Tile". The photos below show a couple of examples of a French Drain System. When in doubt, it is a good idea to consult a reputable foundation inspection or repair company to get the best advise on what system is needed to protect your home's foundation.

Welcome to Fun Fact Friday! Did you know (I didn't) that St. Patrick's Day is a Religious Holiday? The holiday was started in the 17th century to commemorate the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Legend holds that Patrick used the Shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. It was celebrated by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, and the Lutheran Church. Drinking alcohol has become associated with the holiday perhaps because the restrictions of lent related to eating and drinking are lifted on that day. So now you know!!! Have a great weekend and enjoy the St. Patrick's Day celebrations this weekend. The Rick Porras Team wishes you a safe and festive weekend!

How to Clean Dryer Vents (and What Can Happen If You Don't)

Welcome to Maintenance Monday! The Rick Porras Team hopes you had a great weekend and are ready to stay warm for the next couple of days.

We all clean the lint screen of the dryer after every load, but when was the last time you clean the vent on the back of your dryer? Lint can build up in it and, at the very least, keep your dryer from working properly or, worst case, case a fire in your home. Be sure to check your dryer vent and keep it clean to keep your dryer working properly and keep your home and family safe.

If your clothes take forever and a day to dry, it might be high time you learned how to clean your dryer vents. Here's how.

02/25/2019

Welcome to Maintenance Monday! Today, we will talk about "deferred maintenance". In talking to several house inspectors and looking over actual inspection reports, the most common theme is what is referred to as "deferred maintenance". Those are items that should be done on a routine basis to keep your home in good condition and prevent major repairs later down the road. If you are thinking of selling your home, these items can detract from the appearance of your home. These items can also be the cause of additional expenses in the form of lender required repairs or buyer requested repairs that can "kill the deal" if they are not done costing you not only money but a potential sale. Check out the attached checklist that will show you the most common "deferred maintenance" items and how to fix them!

Happy National Margarita Day! And here's to Fun Fact Friday! Our fun fact for today, of course, relates to the Margarita. Ever wonder where this drink came from? Others have as well, but the question may not be as easy to answer as you thought. There are several tales of the invention, but I will share the most commonly believed story! Here is the legend from Smithsonian.com:
"One of the most prevalent stories is that Carlos "Danny" Herrera developed the drink at his Tijuana-area restaurant, Rancho La Gloria, around 1938. As the legend goes, Herrera dreamed up the cocktail for one of his customers, an aspiring actress named Marjorie King who was allergic to all hard alcohol other than tequila. To make the liquor more palatable to his fussy client, he combined the elements of a traditional tequila shot—a lick of salt and a wedge of lime—and turned them into a refreshing drink."
And now you know (maybe! LOL)

Screen Repair: How to Fix a Window Screen

Welcome to Maintenance Monday with The Rick Porras Team! Spring is in the air and we will soon be opening windows to let the fresh spring air in and purge the stale winter air from our homes. The last thing we want though is to be swarmed by flies, mosquitos or other flying critters that may find their way in. The best way to keep that in check is to give a quick inspection of our window screens. Some small holes can be patched but large holes may make it necessary to replace the screen. This can be done relatively quick and easy without having to call in a handyman. Here is a link to a quick tutorial.

Select Replacement Window Screens MaterialThe most popular window replacement screens material is fiberglass, the type we're installing. Its flexibility makes it the easiest to use—if you make a mistake, you can take it out of the frame and try again. Aluminum screen is sturdier, but you only get ...

02/11/2019

Wobbly railings along your porch, deck, or steps are a sign that there's a weak connection between one or more of the posts and the frame. Most of the time, the fix is easy; simply tighten screws or lag bolts in places that don't feel sturdy. If the posts are set in concrete or buried, be sure to give them a quick inspection to make sure they are not showing signs of wood rot. Whatever you do, though, don't ignore them. Eventually the loose rail will give in, and you'll be left with a broken section of the structure—and those repairs will be more costly and time-consuming to deal with than merely tuning up a few shaky sections. It is also a good idea to repaint on a regular basis or anytime you notice chipped or peeling paint just to ensure the wood is well protected. Spring will be here before we know it, so get those decks ready.

Welcome to "Maintenance Monday". If you notice a leaky faucet or a running toilet, address it right away. Not only will a quick check of your system give you a heads up to bigger problems, fixing even a small leak can save big money on your water bill. Putting off a repair can lead to a bigger leak and potentially a plumbing repair bill. https://youtu.be/SYPFon69vKs

Totally Random Fact of the Day:

Pennies and Nickels Cost more to produce than they are worth! In 2006, the US Mint sent a letter to Congress informing them that, for the 1st time in history, it costs more to produce a penny or nickel than the coins themselves are worth. Counting materials, machinery, labor, shipping and other costs, they estimated 1.23 cents to make a penny and 5.73 cents to make a nickel. Currently, it is estimated to cost 2.4 cents to produce a penny and 11.2 cents to produce a nickel.
