Welcome to the May edition of On The House Express! April showers are sure to bring May flowers—and along with them, some gardening challenges such as greening up your lawn. In this issue of OTH Express, we have some tips that will help ‘spring your lawn’ back into shape.

Spring is a great time to throw open windows and doors and let some fresh air in after being cooped up all winter. This month we’ll help you with your spring cleaning tasks. Plus, we’ll help you get organized ‘closetwise.’

Sprucing up your home and garden can lead to quite an appetite. What can be more fun than a backyard cookout? Not on that old crusy grill! Take note of this month’s BBQ cleaning tips and you’ll not only be proud of what comes off of your grill—you’ll be equally proud of the way it looks! We’ve even thrown in a few Dom DeLuise recipes and cooking tips to boot!

Finally, with summer just around the corner, a dip in the pool can be mighty inviting. Have a look at our swimming pool maintenacne tips before placing even your big toe into the pool. We’ll help you keep your water fresh and your equipment running efficiently.

It’s all in this month’s issue of On The House Express.

Have a great May!

  Morris and James Carey

If you’re looking to add value to your home without spending a lot of money, consider enhancing its curb appeal with a new front door. A spruced-up entryway can add as much as $24,000 to a home’s perceived value, according to research commissioned by Therma-Tru Doors.
