In order to take good care of your roof, you should always maintain the gutters and downspouts and make sure they are free from any debris.
Doing this helps to keep them draining as they should, and gets rid of excess rain water or melting snow from off of the roof which can cause damage. If you do notice your roof leaking, make note of where it is so that when the roof is dry you can point the repairman to the right direction.
You should never walk on the roof unless it’s absolutely necessary. Walking on the roof can cause the roofing material to loosen from your weight, which can lead to leaking. For obvious reasons of safety, never walk on the roof when there is moisture or snow on it. Doing so can result in injury or death.
If there has been a major storm, you will want to do a visual inspection of your roof for any damage. You can notify your insurance company of the storm and they can send out a representative to estimate the damage. Noticeable damage can be seen in the form of shingles in your yard or shingle edges pulling apart from the roof.
It’s also important to pay attention to ice build-up. This is common in the eaves when there has been extended periods of snow and cold weather. Although this isn’t covered by warranty, your insurance company should be contacted as it is likely covered by them.
Always take precautions when getting onto your roof as it is important for your own safety and the integrity of your roof. If you are ever concerned about damage from storms, make sure to contact your insurance company immediately to report the damage. Since damage can get worse over time, it’s important to report any problems as soon as possible.

November sales are starting out with a bang, we have been rocking and rolling.
In the past, November has been a seasonally slower month with Thanksgiving. Home buyers are starting to feel like the home appreciation in there current homes may evaporate if they don’t move quickly. With interest rates low and lower cost of living in Utah, interest and purchases are high.
SunRiver has recently released a new plan just under 1,900 feet that has been getting a lot of attention and recent sales, we named it the obsession model, so far that name has been fitting.

Drywall is an important part of your house. Properly maintaining your dry wall will keep your house looking new and fresh. Slight cracking, nail pops, or seams may become visible in walls and ceilings. These are caused by the shrinkage of the wood and normal deflection of rafters to which the drywall is attached.
Most drywall repairs can be easily made. This work is best done when you redecorate the room. Repair hairline cracks with a coat of paint. You can repair slightly larger cracks with spackle or caulk. To correct a nail pop, reset the nail with a hammer and punch. Cover it with spackle, which is available at paint and hardware stores. Apply two or three thin coats. When dry, sand the surface with fine-grain sandpaper, and then paint. You can fill indentations caused by sharp objects in the same manner.
SunRiver Homesites are selling quickly in phase 44
October sales are coming in better than expected, with most of that success being attributed to the homesites we currently have. The lots sit high and have views of the Valley and Pine Valley Mountain. One recent SunRiver resident that is purchasing another home said, “I never would have built again, if I hadn’t seen this homesite and view.”

There are many important ways in which you can protect your countertops. Some of basic ways are to use a cutting board to protect your counters when you cut or chop. Protect the counter from heat and from extremely hot pans. If you cannot put your hand on it, do not put it on the counter. Do not use countertops as ironing boards ad do not se lighted cigarettes on the edge of the counter.
Another way to extend the lifetime of your countertops is to make sure there is a good seal. The caulking between the countertop and the wall, along the joint at the backsplash, and around the sink may shrink, leaving a slight gap. Maintaining a good seal in these locations is important to keep moisture from reaching the wood under the laminates and to prevent warping.
Also, avoid abrasive cleaners that will damage the luster of the surface. Rubber drain mats can trap moisture beneath them, causing the marinated plastic to warp and blister. Dry the surface as needed. Wax is not necessary, but it can be used to make counters gleam.
By following these suggestions, you will be able to have beautiful countertops that will last and shine for many years.

Go SUNRIVER ATHLETES! It may be good to take a break for a few days; there may be some aches and pains out there.
This is part two, for part one see Maintenance Tips; Carpet – Part 1, posted on Thursday, October, 9th. This post will continue to discuss carpets and the various problems that can occur. It also will suggest some solutions to maintaining your carpet and keeping it in pristine condition.
Rippling – With wall-to-wall carpeting, high humidity may cause rippling. If the carpet remains rippled after the humidity has left, have a professional re-stretch the carpeting using a power stretcher, not a knee-kicker.
Seams– Carpet usually comes in 12-foot widths, making seams necessary in most rooms. Visible seams are not a defect unless they have been improperly made or unless the material has a defect, making the seam appear more pronounced than normal. The more dense and uniform he carpet texture, the more visible the seams will be. Carpet styles with low, tight naps result in the most visible seams. Seams are never more visible than when the carpet is first installed. Usually with time, use, and vacuuming the seams become less visible.
Shading – Shading is an inherent quality of fine-cut pile carpets. Household traffic causes pile fibers to assume different angles; as a result, the carpet appears darker and lighter in these areas. A good vacuuming, which makes the pile all go in the same direction, provides a temporary remedy.
Shedding– New carpeting, especially pile, sheds bits of fiber for a period of time. Eventually these loose fibers are removed by vacuuming. Shedding usually occurs more with wool carpeting than with nylon or other synthetics.
Snags– Sharp-edged objects can grab or snag the carpet fiber. When this occurs, cut off the snag. If the snag is especially large, call a professional.
Sprouting – Occasionally you may find small tufts of fiber sprouting above carpet surface. Simply use scissors to cut off the sprout. Do not attempt to pull it, because other fibers will come out in the process.
Stains– No carpet is stain proof. Although your carpet manufacturer designates your carpet as stain-resistant, some substances may still cause permanent staining These include hair dyes, shoe polish, paints, and India ink. Some substances destroy or change the color of carpets, including bleaches, acne medications, drain cleaners, plant food, insecticides, and food or beverages with strongly colored natural dyes as found in some brands of mustard and herbal tea. Refer to care and maintenance instructions for recommended cleaning procedures for your particular fiber. Pretest any spot-removal solution in a inconspicuous area before using it in a large area. Apply several drops of the solution, hold a white tissue on the area, and count to ten. Examine both tissue and carpet for dye transfer and check for carpet damage.
Static – Cooler temperatures outside often contribute to static electricity inside. To avoid the problem, look for carpets made with anti-static. You can also install a humidifier to help control static build-up.
