Spring has sprung! In this edition of the On The House Express, we want to make sure that you are no April fool! Our spring maintenance checklist is a useful too to ensure that your home will be in tip-top shape. With Uncle Sam knocking at your door come tax time, we have some information that you can "bank on" as a homeowner. We also offer some suggestions on how you and your family can tackle various spring cleaning tasks this month.

Our friends from TimberTech will provide some insight about how composite decking can give you less work and more life! Also, have you considered designing your own deck and landscape? If so we have details on how you can pick up our new easy to use design software.

As always, we sneak into the kitchen to see what culinary delights our friend Dom DeLuise is cooking up this month!

Avoid those pesky April showers, and we will see you next month!
