Don’t Let Home Improvements Leave You Underinsured

As many Americans face months on end stuck at home, some are using their time (and money) to create a change of scenery or upgrade their surroundings. Office equipment purchases are on the rise, and people are tackling more renovation projects than usual.

But expensive new stuff and significant home improvements can leave you underinsured. If you’re considering making changes to your home — or if you already have — it’s smart to revisit your homeowners or renters policy. Here’s how to ensure it covers the new additions.

Tell Your Insurer About Your Plans

There’s a good chance you’re underinsured before you even make changes, according to Don Griffin, vice president of personal lines at American Property Casualty Insurance Association. Talk to your insurer before making any expensive purchases or changes to your home to inform

Freeport Mayor’s View: City seeks home improvements grant – News – Rockford Register Star

Posted on

As we rapidly approach the end of the construction season, the City is quickly working to wrap up a variety of infrastructure projects. We had a busy year executing infrastructure projects and approving additional work that will be completed over the next year and a half.

In the past few months alone, the City completed the $3 million Float Avenue infrastructure project, repaved Sunset Drive, Hurd Street, Boggess Street, as well as portions of Ottawa Avenue and Winneshiek Street. Anyone who has driven over Locust Avenue between Lincoln Boulevard and Pleasant Street will appreciate the much-needed repairs that were conducted in the past week. We are also in the middle of milling the street and overlaying Highland Drive in its entirety and are planning on road repair on portions of South Demeter Drive before the weather, and leaf pickup season, prohibits us from further infrastructure improvement projects.

Best Home Improvements to Increase Value

Posted on

Whether you’re thinking of selling in the next six months or a few years down the road, remodeling with ROI in mind is a smart move. Your home is a huge financial investment, and any money you put toward it should not only increase your enjoyment of the home now but also add value that you’ll recoup when you sell.

According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report 2018, sellers make an average of 2.2 renovations or improvements before selling. And 79% of sellers make at least one improvement, which means that only 21% list their home as-is.

How to budget for renovations to increase home value

Before researching renovations that might add the most value to your home, decide how much you can afford to spend and how you’ll pay for the renovations.

All-cash home improvements

If you can afford it, paying cash is your best option, as

The truth about Home Improvement’s Tool Time audience

Posted on

The show-within-a-show aspect of Home Improvement gave it the opportunity to use its studio audience in a way that few sitcoms ever had, but taping in front of an audience carries advantages beyond just prompting home viewers to laugh. Sitcoms that are taped this way almost always employ multiple tapings to get the best takes, and if a joke is falling flat or the audience otherwise responds unfavorably to something that’s scripted, it gives the writers and producers a chance to course-correct.

The advent of the laugh track meant that even single-camera shows that were obviously shot on sound stages could mimic the effect of an audience chortling along with the action onscreen, but, for the purposes of fine-tuning each episode and maintaining an authentic, stage play-like presentation, many sitcoms, even today, choose to shoot before a live studio audience. Recent hit shows like The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke

Landlord’s home improvements raise issues

Posted on

Q: My husband and I are renting a house in Elk River, Minn. The home is perfectly fine; however, the owner, who is our landlord, re-sided the house during a very rainy period of about five weeks while we were living there. My young dogs and I were very nervous with the noise level of that project. We were tolerant of it and got through it.

Now the homeowner wants to replace all the windows. He requested entry for his workers to perform this work. I have asthma and refused their entry, due to rising dust. Now we’re afraid that the homeowner may be upset with us and feel uncomfortable with the arrangement. We have paid our rent on time for the last four months. We just wanted a peaceful place to live. We have been landlords in the past and can’t imagine being so disruptive of a tenant’s space.
