Now that we're a few weeks into spring, the weather is finally starting to warm up all over the country. It's a great time to get that ever-popular spring cleaning done, whether inside the house, or outside!

Remember that just because the weather is nice, doesn't mean that your power might not go out. Don't be left helpless by a summer storm. Our friends at Guardian Standby Generators by Generac have some great tips on how to keep your home running until your regular electricity service is restored. We also have some great information on soundproofing your home. If you're in search of some peace and quiet, you're going to want to check out QuietRock, a state-of-the- art new soundproofing drywall by Quiet Solution.

Above all, spring is a time for renovation and rejuvenation. If you're in the market for a beautiful new bathtub or shower that's more gain and less pain, have a look at this month's article from ReBath. You can remodel like never before by using ReBath's system of installing a new tub or shower directly over your old one. Is your budget already stretched to the limit? In our latest contest, five lucky people are going to win a complete bathtub or shower remodel in the ReBath Ugliest Bath Makeover Sweepstakes. Visit the home page of our website to learn more about the great prizes and to register your entry. You only have through May 9 to enter, so visit soon... before your chance for a spring spruce-up is over!

Thank you as for reading the On the House Express, and we'll see you in May!
