Invest In a Home Inspector

April19

A home inspector can be worth his or her weight in gold for a buyer or a seller. There are certain skills that a home inspector has to have. I was actually a home inspector for a short while in college, although I was working for a construction management company that was buying and flipping foreclosed houses. So it was a bit different than the kind of inspection that goes into the buying of a home that will be moved into immediately, but it is essentially the same thing. I learned a lot through this college job, strange as it may have been for a college student. I learned to hone my eyes to look for little things. You learn to distinguish beyond what are pretty easily, negligible fixes and big, serious, catastrophic problems.

 

For instance, I would go into some of these homes, and the carpet would be absolutely disgusting. (Though it should not be all together surprising, people do incredible things to their homes when they know that it is getting foreclosed. It made my job rather eventful.) You might walk into the house and see a horrendously putrid carpet, and you might think that the house is just trash. But even someone who has not done home inspections can figure this one out. How much is would a new carpet cost? Not much. How much lasting damage will a ruined carpet put on the rest of the house? Little to none. So the bad carpet should not disqualify the house from being bought. Even something like a fist through the wall (That’s right; massive holes right through the wall.) might not be that big of a deal. This depends largely on the size and location of the hole. A junky frig might not matter if you were probably going to replace the frig anyway. If that is the case, it can be the biggest piece of junk in the world. Who cares? You’ll replace it anyway.

 

There are other subtle things however. Mold testing is a hugely important thing that I would have to do. While a hole in the wall or God knows what on the carpet may be noticeable, mold is a silent killer for a house’s value. You can replace the carpet and patch a hole. Getting rid of mold, on the other hand, is a huge burden. It can be really hard to fully extract mold after a certain point. Radon inspections are also hugely important. If a house is flooded with radon, it is not worth the buy. What constitutes a lot of radon also changes with the susceptibility of the people in the house. I’m talking about babies and old people.

The things that ought to disqualify a house from being bought are subtle. This is why it is so important to hire a home inspector to take a look at your home before buying or selling. This kind of information can change the way that you go about the transaction of this house.

Roof care is too important to do incorrectly

April13

If you are thinking about getting your roof replaced there are a number of factors that you need to consider in your decision making process. Finding a good roofing company is one of the most important decisions when it comes to home ownership. Automatically anything that has to do with your home is of the greatest importance but the roof on your house is the thing that protects the entirety of the rest of your house. If you roof is just and not made and installed well, you will face a much increased risk of flooding or further damage to your home. Like almost everything else, having it done right the first time will save you lots of time, money and hassles down the line. roofingAll roofs need the occasional roof repair, some holes patched up or shingles reattached but overall the amount of work that you will have to do to keep a junk roof functioning will be a lot more than if you just found a good roofer from the start and had it done correctly the first time. One of the ways I think is easiest to find a good roofer in your area is to ask the people in your neighborhood. See which ones of them have had good experiences and haven’t had to do much roof repair over the years and which are struggling every time a storm or a bit of ice comes through. Once you have a list of a few good companies you can go through the rest of your checklist, make sure that they offer the option of whatever kind of material you want to use for your roof, how much it will cost and whatever other stipulations you may have. This way you know by the end of your elimination process that you have the best roofing company for your needs. Most roofing companies offer a service where they will come over to your house and give you an estimate as to how much it would cost to either repair or replace your roof. This can give you a great opportunity to get to know the roofing company and get a feel for what kind of business they do as well. As I said no matter what quality of roof you have, over time it will need to be worked on and patched up a bit so once you find a roofing company that you really like make sure to keep their information so every year or so you can have them come out and do a little check to make sure everything is still in great condition up there. It is normally suggested that you get your roof checked over once every year so that you can catch problems before they get to be too big of an issue. Usually at first most roof problems are quite easy to fix, it is only after they have been left for too long that they start to get out of hand.

Marty Erzinger is at the forefront of wealth management

April8

There are several different wealth management firms in Colorado, but the best one is Sanctuary Advisors, which was founded by Marty Erzinger.  Marty is nationally recognized as one of the premier wealth advisors in the country.  He has over thirty years of experience in finance and securities on Wall Street.  His skills has led numerous clients to an indestructible financial foundation.  He is an expert at the creation, implementation, and maintenance of a unique and personalized plan that is totally comprehensive.  His professional training includes the Cit-Family Office program that focused on the continuum of solutions in wealth planning.  He has worked with the elite of Colorado for numerous years and is the number one choice of Colorado’s highest net worth individuals.  He manages the wealth of CEOs, presidents, directors, and founders of Colorado’s largest companies.  Mary Erzinger is at the forefront of familial conflict resolution when it comes to the tough decisions of philanthropic planning and legacy.   Marty graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1980 with a degree in Economics.  He went on to serve as the chairman of the University of Colorado Foundation audit and investment committee.  He has also serves as the chairman of the Economic Club of Colorado.  Currently he serves as the co-chair of the ST. Anne’s Episcopal School Endowment.  His goal in founding Sanctuary Wealth Advisors was to create a firm with the unique understanding of the issues that affect families with a extremely high net worth.  The goals of high net worth investors are much different than those of the rich and the middle class.  Before the founding of Sanctuary Wealth Advisors, there wasn’t a firm that focused on the unique investment goals of the high net worth families of Colorado.  Marty Erzinger was the first and continues to be the best.  Marty’s key to the understanding of the high net worth investor starts with his desire to create a totally new investment strategy for each individual investor.  His services are totally customized in way that was unheard of before Sanctuary Wealth Advisors opened their doors.  He has also guaranteed that all the investors at Sanctuary Wealth Advisors are treated with the utmost in respect.  The customer service aspect of Sanctuary Wealth Advisors is unequalled in the financial sector.  They guarantee that all dealing are done with transparency and with integrity.  Whereas many of the copy cats charge hidden fees and work within a set of standards that could be seen as conflicts of interest, Marty guarantees that his advisors will serve the investors to the highest extent.  For families with a high net worth, there are many things to worry about.  The fear of losing some of your wealth when it transfers to your children is something that needs to be considered.  Sanctuary Wealth Advisors are on the cutting edge of transferring wealth between generations without any loss.  If you live in Colorado and you have a high net worth, you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not talk with Marty.

Home Automation Is The Future

April6

Technology is really an awesome thing and the fact that it’s progressing at an exponential rate is very interesting and fun to watch. I especially like seeing technology advance in a way where it allows us to be more conscience of our environment and helps us become more “green”. The green movement is a broad topic, but today I’m going to focus on how home automationhome automation technology can help you behave in a more environment and energy conscience way. There are some great new lighting technologies with bulbs that have been invented that last for thousands and thousands of hours. Just think about how many old-school light bulbs will be saved on an annual basis because of the emergence of new technology. Beyond the bulbs, our ability to control when the lights are on and off, has increased and now, you don’t even have to be home so you can physically turn off the light. Home automation experts are more than capable of helping you not only secure your home the best way possible with a top of the line home security system, but they can also give you complete control of the interior and exterior lighting of your property. You can preset a schedule that turns lights on or off whenever you want, or you can use your cell phone to do it randomly or after you know that someone in your household left all the lights on at the house before they left. If anyone reading this has kids or an irresponsible or less energy-conscience roommate, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. A lot of home automation experts also specialize in home theater installation, because it makes a lot of sense to integrate all of your home’s electronic devices, no matter what they are. If you could come home, unlock your door and with the push of a button, be listening to your favorite radio station while the lights in your home turn on automatically, then why wouldn’t you do it? Even if you’re a total traditionalist then you’ve still got to admit that’s a pretty cool idea, whether you personally feel like you’d be interested in it or not. Now, think about all of the fun that you and your family could have in your very own home theatre. You can use your home theatre to watch movies, play video games, or just enhance what would otherwise be just a typical television watching experience. Regardless of whether or not you want a home theater or control over every light and electronic device in your house, don’t you want to be as safe as possible with a fully automated home security system? I’m not trying to scare you, but we live in a world where anything could happen at any time and securing your home is an important thing to do. You don’t have to have a fully integrated home theatre system to see the obvious value in having a top notch security system that you can control from anywhere.

The construction of kitchen cabinets is important to consider

April5

Kitchen cabinets are an essential part of any kitchen. I do not simply mean in terms of functionality, but also in terms of look and feel in your kitchen. It often is not enough to just hope that your kitchen will look nice regardless of how you design it or what types of cabinets you put in. Kitchen design takes effort, and takes intentionality. That is why there are groups like The Kitchen Showcase in the business to help you take your kitchen from sub par to beautiful in no time, and with ease. It can be really helpful to have an expert walk you through the best ways to design your kitchen, so taking advantage of the services they offer is the best choice you can make when designing your modern kitchen. One of the aspects of this design is the type of wood you choose to use for your kitchen cabinets. There are many options, as well as many ways you can chose to set up the kitchen itself. The cabinet space, however, is an important part of your design. This will help you be sure that your kitchen looks and feels just the way you hoped it would!

http://www.thekitchenshowcase.com/Cabinets are, of course, designed with six sides, all wooden paneled, and close on five of the sides with a door on the sixth side. The varying parts of the cabinet can require different construction methods and materials, all depending on the desired look and feel you hope to achieve with your cabinet. Cabinet faces are typically made from solid wood. Solid wood has remained a popular choice for cabinet construction over time, and wood can be used for all parts of the cabinet, if so desired. However, using this very traditional style for construction can sometimes be cost prohibitively expensive.  The pricing for solid wood cabinet doors depends entirely on the type of wood used. For example, using teak instead of cherry is more expensive, and using cherry over maple is more expensive. Many consumers chose an option that incorporates particulate board or plywood in order to reduce the cost of the project. In creating the perfect project for you, it is important to weigh the benefits of a beautiful solid wood cabinet against the costs the project will likely entail.

The cabinet body, or cabinet “carcase” tends to be constructed out of plywood or a high quality particle board. This especially tends to be the case when there are flat sections that do not require special shaping, as parts such as shelves or doors might need to be. The important factors in this part of the construction include stiffness and strength, as this is the part of the cabinet that will allow it to retain its shape over time. The last thing you want is a cabinet that will sag or break over time as it carries its heavy load. Plywood and particle board are great choices here, as they are less susceptible to warping due to moisture. Regardless, reinforce the boards in order to keep your kitchen cabinets strong for years to come!

The ease of electric fireplaces

April4

Now that fireplaces aren’t needed in every home as the only heat source, most homes builders don’t bother putting them in which I find rather sad. I always love homes with fireplaces, I feel it adds this level of comfort and relaxation that is hard to find in other ways. Part of the reason that I feel like this towards fireplaces is probably because as a kid I lived in a really cold area and after I would be out playing in the snow for a few hours I would come back inside and drink hot chocolate by our fireplace and warm up. During the winter I would sit by the fireplace for hours and read, do my homework or just sit and watch TV. Now that I live in a much warmer climient, having a fireplace is less necessary than it was for us when I was a kid but even though it is warm here throughout most of the year, I still like the idea of having a fireplace. Back when I was renting houses it was fairly difficult since most houses don’t have fireplaces and I couldn’t exactly install one myself but now that I am finally buying my own home, it is high up on my list to make sure the home already has a fireplace or that I can at least add one easily. fireplaceThe only difference that I think I want between my old family fireplaces and what I want to have in my new home is going from a wood burning to gas log fireplace. I have heard a lot of arguments for why traditional fireplaces are better and being able to sit next to a real fireplace as a child was amazing but I don’t think I want to have the work of a wood-burning fireplace right now. Back when I was a kid my dad was always the one bringing in wood and then cleaning out the fireplace afterwards. Making sure that a wood-burning fireplace is clean, safe and running well is kind of a bit of work. It sounds lazy, probably because it is lazy, but I would rather pay a little bit more to buy the fuel for a gas fireplace and not have to worry about bringing in logs all of the time or cleaning out all of the ash. Plus, all of the gas fireplaces I have seen so far turn on with the flip of a switch instead of having to be all Boy Scout about it and gather kindle and build the little tipi shape, then spend however long it would take me to actually get a good fire going. I would probably get bored with it well before I would actually be able to get the fire started I am sure. With the electric fires I don’t have to worry about creating the fire, keeping the fire going, or cleaning up after the fire when I am done. It is a bit lazier and more posh I guess but honestly it seems to me like it is worth the extra money, especially considering how much I want to have a fireplace in my home.

Tile Cleaning Considered As Alternative To Replacement Tile

April4

My father had been living alone since my mother died several years ago, and for a long time, he did most of the work around the house himself. He was only in his seventies and had retired not long ago, so he had the time and energy to work on the house pretty regularly. My siblings and I checked in on him often and at least one of us talked to him every day, so we always knew what he was up to, and we always heard immediately when something would go wrong with the house. Initially when our mother died we had pressured him to move out of the house, thinking it would be too hard for him, but he insisted on staying and it has been a blessing in disguise, because it has kept him busy and engaged. There is only so much longer he can do it, but for now, he seems really happy.

He called my brother last week to complain about the tile in the kitchen, because apparently there had been a slight leak in the kitchen sink. He had fixed the leak just fine and told us all about it, but now the tile appeared to be suffering from water damage and getting moldy. The conversation with my brother was about whether he needed new tile, new hardwood floor in place of the tile, or just some really good tile cleaning professionals. My brother of course was urging him to go for the latter, knowing that if the tile were to be ripped up our father would want to do it himself and we were not sure he could or should be handling such a big project on his own. We all had kids and full time jobs, and we were only able to help him occasionally with his household projects. Usually he did not want our help at all, so it was not a problem. But a new tile floor would be a massive undertaking for one person.

My brother had subtlety continued to try and talk him into tile cleaning as the more viable option, while spoon feeding the same information to us so that if any of us got the opportunity to ask him about his project, we would also suggest tile cleaning as the solution. Avoiding talk of a new floor altogether was ideal, so we tried to steer clear of that from the get go. When he brought the project up with me, I immediately suggested the cleaning as the only viable solution and hoped he would take the hint.

He did, although not without a little bit of a fight. Ultimately it was his decision so we knew we could not truly stop him, but we also did not want to hold him back. It was a fine line to walk but with enough encouragement he decided to go ahead with the professional cleaning services and find himself another project around the house he could work on instead.

How Urgent Care Extra has Matched the Lifestyles of its Patients

March29

Urgent Care Extra centers are facilities that help ambulatory patients get access to treatment. Although they are less sophisticated than hospitals, they diagnose and administer treatment to patients with less than severe medical conditions.  Nowadays, Urgent Care Extra has aligned itself with its patient’s modern lifestyle. These facilities are viewed as fast and efficient health care that is readily accessible. Here are some benefits of Urgent Care Extra that has aligned it to its patients.

urgent care extra in Dobson

proper medical attention

Patients receive attention right away

Compared to a traditional emergency room, patients are able to receive immediate care in an urgent care extra center. Emergency rooms cater patients with all types of illness. Since they cannot turn patients away, these facilities prioritize patients according to the severity of their complaint. This helps health care providers cater to patients who require immediate attention. For patients with less severe conditions this can mean hours of waiting and waiting.

They offer a wide array of services

Centers providing urgent care extra in Dobson welcome patients with non-life threatening illnesses. They treat a wide variety of illnesses such as common colds, sprains, infections, cuts and broken bones. Aside from these they also offer ancillary care like weight loss and physical therapy.

They are low cost

Compared to emergency rooms and primary care centers, medical treatment in centers providing urgent care extra can cost considerably less.  Their base fee can be $30 to $100 lower than that of a private practice clinic. Compared to an emergency room setting, patients generally pay $120 to $500 less.

Similar to other facilities prices for medication and tests are not included in the base price. While prices for medication are consistent, lab tests such as X-rays and EKG are relatively lesser in Urgent Care Extra than in emergency rooms.

No appointment required

Centers providing urgent care extra in Dobson will see patients even without an appointment. This is a huge difference from a physician’s office where an appointment must be called in days ahead. This is favorable for patients who need to receive treatment right away.

Urgent care extra centers in Dobson have extended schedule

Most urgent care extra centers in Dobson open as early as 7am and close at 9pm. This is a few hours more than most private practice offices.  They are also available on weekends and on holidays.

Capital Steel Is Here To Stay

March27

When was the last time you felt completely at peace? What did you do to achieve this wonderful state of mind? Its a tricky thing to do in a world with so many things that are, quite frankly, very un-peaceful. Some people use meditation or medication to calm themselves down and or to feel better about things for a little while. I mean, nowadays there is literally so much to worry about. It seems that we spend the majority of time thinking about what is going to happen in the future or what happened in the past rather than just living in the present moment. They say that you should not spend time worrying about something because then if it happens you lived it twice. I think this is amazing, high quality advice that more people today should listen to. Of course we are never going to live in a world that is completely worry free, but we can try, and when it comes to metal buildings Capital Steel is here to reassure us.

Capital Steel, on their company website, gives tips for peace of mind when working with and purchasing from them. This peace of mind includes shipping experience  honest sales. a fifty year warranty, as well as asserting that Capital Steel is a a full service company that possesses the resources and experience to help you, not only during the sale and construction of your pre engineered steel building but before and after as well.

Workshop Purchased From General Steel as Anniversary Gift

March26

My husband and I had been married for several years when I decided it was time to surprise him with the best anniversary gift I could think of. For years he had been lamenting that we had purchased a house without enough space for him to have his own workshop. We had agreed on the house because it had everything else that we wanted, and that was the only thing missing. He thought he could make it work but I knew he was missing having that space to work for himself. As we had kids and there was less free time, I knew that finding a way to get him his own little space where he could just get away would be the best possible gift.

Our seven year anniversary was coming up, and I had a few different ideas. I spoke with a contractor about the possibility of building him some space in the backyard next to the garage, but the quote was much higher than I had budgeted for and it seemed like it would take a lot longer than I wanted it to take. It also would not be a surprise for long as my husband would see the work being done in the backyard. After speaking with several neighbors, I settled on a different option. A small steel building purchased from General Steel would get the job done. With the help of several friends, we would be able to assemble it and get it ready one weekend while my husband was traveling for business. I would just need to purchase some more tools and equipment to outfit the new workshop, and I would be all set.

The structure was delivered on the exact right date from General Steel, and the neighbors and friends I had recruited to help assemble and prepare it showed up later that morning. It did not even take a full day to put it all together, and I spent the following day hanging up shelves and putting in the tables and new tools I had bought him to top it off. I was extremely pleased with how it turned out, and have General Steel to thank for the affordable, easy to use option. I highly recommend it for any home. One padlock on the outside, and our children would be safe and unable to get in to any of the dangerous equipment inside. It looked perfect, and I could not wait for my husband to get back from his trip.

The following evening, I had sent the kids to my parents and prepared us a fancy dinner for our anniversary. He got home shortly before dinner and without going outside, sat down to tell me all about his trip. We ate dinner but the whole time I was just so giddy and excited to show him his new gift. Finally, after dessert, I told him to close his eyes and led him into the backyard. He opened them, and was shocked! He loved it, and still tells the story of how I managed to surprise him with a brand new workshop, years later. Any wife whose husband is in need of that kind of space should definitely consider this route.

What says fitness better than walls of steel to match those abs?

March23

We all know that buildings should match the purpose that they serve. Would it make sense to have a tiny little wooden building as the place to house the government? Would a swim team practice in a stucco hall without a pool? Features serve function, and the two are inextricably intertwined. If the building you are creating does not adequately appear to match the cause of building, then you will lose out on both people to be a part of the cause as well as funding to make it happen. We all want our buildings to appear a certain way, and when they do not, we feel less confident in their ability to serve the purposes we intend them to.

http://www.gensteel.comThis is why building a gym out of any material other than steel is impractical. As mentioned earlier, space serves function. If a gym is built without the power and apparent strength that people want to feel as part of their gym going experience, then the gym will cease to serve its purpose. That is why General Steel is a leader in gym construction nationwide. The special size and space considerations that gyms require to be functional and powerful buildings often mean that traditional construction methods simply do not do a gym justice and end up creating a space that does not meet the needs of the gym or its participants. In addition, it tends to be costly to build a gym with these specific needs. However, General Steel’s prefabricated steel buildings are easily created to meet these spacial needs and without the additional cost! With General Steel it is easy to not only create the kind of space you need and want, but to fit said space into your budget. This means you will be able to accommodate a multitude of recreational activities. Everything from swimming pools to roller rinks, from basketball courts to machine rooms in your business space- General Steel can easily make these dreams a reality and without the hassle and prohibitive cost that other methods of engineering and building construction often require.

Best of all, General Steel’s pre engineered steel gym kits are ready to erect. As they are already made, you can skip the fuss of finding a contractor and lengthy construction timelines and costs. General Steel’s buildings offer the ideal solution for people looking to make their dreams happen quickly. After all, why wait when you can have your gym set up in next to no time! Additionally, steel buildings do not require columns and structures that inhibit wide open spaces. This uninterrupted floor usage is ideal for all kinds of indoor sporting activities. Even football and soccer can happen indoors when steel structures are used!

Steel buildings are also quite resilient and require low maintenance over their years of service. They do not rot as wood does and are not subject to the normal problems you see with more traditional building methods. Choose General Steel to get your gymnasium up and running in no time!

title companyFinancial matters can be complicated.  In no industry is this more true than in the real estate industry.  Before you can make a real estate purchase of any kind, you have a lot to take into consideration.  This is why the decision to make a real estate purchase should not be one hastily.  It is best to have various different financial experts advise you, during the entire process.  If you have a title company help you with the details of your real estate purchase, you can avoid the common pitfalls of real estate.  It does not matter if you are purchasing residential or commercial real estate, you need to know all of the facts before you make a decision.  In most cases in which someone is purchasing real estate, especially residential real estate, there is a lender, providing the money upfront.  To a great extent, your financial situation will be determined by the deal given to you by the lender.  Obviously, it is in the best interest of the purchaser to ensure that the lender feels secure about being paid back.  That is why credit and other factors are relevant.  If the lender does not feel that they will be paid back, the conditions of your loan are not going to be good.  That is why it is best to just purchase title insurance, at the time you obtain your residential land title.  Title insurance is a special type of insurance that protects against anything that is wrong with the property and title that no one has discovered yet.  This is one of the biggest differences between title insurance and most other kinds of insurance.  Title insurance only insures against things that have already happened.  This seems silly, but it is not, as it covers all the things that you do not know about.  If you do not have title insurance, your lender will not want to give you a good deal, for one thing.  On top of that, you could end up being held accountable for a mistake made by the previous owner.  Back taxes are one of the most obvious ways in which this can happen.  If there are many taxes still owed on your property from the previous owner that you were unaware of, you will not be held liable if you have title insurance.  On the other hand, if you do not, you could end up dealing with a nightmare of paperwork and still owing the back taxes.  The thing about title insurance, though, is that you cannot decide to get it after the fact.  Once these preexisting problems become evident and start causing all sorts of disarray in your life, it is too late to opt for title insurance.  That is why the best thing you can do is take out a title insurance policy as soon as you make a purchase.  Even purchase agreements cannot fully protect you from unknown preexisting issues.  Obviously, purchase agreements are a necessity, but they are no substitute for a title insurance policy.

Your Dental Care Dentist can Determine Whether or not Your Brushing and Flossing Habits are Sufficient.

March14

dental care dentistIt is important to take good care of your teeth and gums, if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  There is, in fact, a well-kwown correlation between a person’s overall health and their oral hygiene habits.  In general, people who take better care of their teeth tend to have lower rates of heart disease and diabetes than those who do not take their oral hygiene habits as seriously.  A big part of maintaining good oral hygiene is going to the dentist at least twice a year, for routine checkups.  Your dental care dentist can determine whether or not your brushing and flossing habits are sufficient.  This is an important reason why it is necessary to go every six months.  If your hygiene habits are not removing plaque effectively, you are increasing your risk for a variety of oral conditions.  That is why it is important to change poor oral hygiene habits as soon as possible.  In addition to helping you work on your hygiene habits, your dentist also, of course, locates and identifies any oral conditions you are suffering from.  There are two extremely common oral conditions that dentists look for.  The first are cavities.  Cavities are, basically, holes that develop in your teeth when large amounts of plaque collect in a certain spot.  The plaque actually rots part of your tooth away.  Despite the ostensible severity of this problem, cavities can often be treated fairly easily.  Unless the cavity is very advanced, your family dentist can simply drill the diseased portion out and fill it with a safe plaster-like substance.  The other common oral condition that dentists are checking for is periodontal disease.  Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums that causes them to become puffy, swollen, and dark.  If you have these symptoms or your gums bleed when you brush, you may have periodontal disease.  In many regards, periodontal disease is even worse.  If it is caught very early, you can change your oral hygiene habits, and you will probably be able to get rid of it.  However, in its more advanced stages, it can cause you to lose your teeth.  In short, if you notice bleeding of the gums when you brush, you should definitely go to the dentist right away.  Your dentist is also responsible for tracking the placement of your teeth and jaw, in addition to tending to oral hygiene issues.  The placement of your teeth is important because it affects how you eat, speak, and look.  Jaw alignment issues tend to be even more serious, and they often pose legitimate medical problems.  In most cases in which a patient has a misaligned jaw, braces and other devices are often needed.  If merely the teeth are misaligned, the patient may have other options, such as Invisalign.  Invisalign is a company that produces a product by the same name that moves teeth into place, in much the same way that braces do, except without metal brackets or wires.  Invisalign is plastic, transparent, and removable, which makes it the obvious choice if you do, in fact, have a choice.

Needing a wealth advisor

March10

When we found out we were pregnant, we decided that we needed to sit down and talk about how we were going to lay out our will, and how we were going to move forward, protecting our wealth and taking the time to ensure we were creating more instead of just using it up. A will can take a lot out of you, but we knew that we needed to do some serious wealth planning for the next generation, in the event that anything happened to either one of us. So we sat down with Marty Erzinger because he is a nationally recognized wealth advisor who is also here in our town of Denver. We didn’t want to have to travel to the coast to try to find someone who is a high level wealth advisor, and we were able to find him right here at home, so it worked out perfectly for us. With a lower percentage of high worth individuals here in the state of Colorado, he wasn’t as overly busy as we expected him to be, because he was able to fit us in to sit down with him in the same month that we called. This was a huge blessing, because we have heard horror stories about people who wait up to six months to sit down with a high level wealth advisor in order to get their affairs in order. Marty Erzinger too the time to make us feel like he had time for us, and that was really exceptional. We wanted to get it done and over with, once we started to think about how much it needed to be done. We wanted to get all of our questions answered and get it all hammered out so that we could just focus on the joy of discovering we were going to be parents, and the planning for getting it all taken care of was what we needed to get accomplished as soon as possible. And he knew exactly what we were going through, with several children of his own and a high net worth, he has gone through this himself, and his firm deals with these types of clients every day. So from the beginning we understood that we were in good hands, and Marty Erzinger was going to get all of our questions answered and help point us in the right direction for the plans that we needed to make. We not only needed to plan for end of life and for our will, but we also needed to plan for our proactive wealth management, instead of just letting it grow without any outside intervention. We wanted to be ready to pay for college or any other types of things that would present as opportunities for our child, and we wanted to be sure that this would be well within our means at that point in time, instead of just hoping that our wealth would continue to grow. So the direction for wealth planning was the most helpful thing we got from out time with Marty Erzinger.

By being able to have them in a proper preschool environment your children will be able to develop socially and emotionally while learning the great basic skills to help them develop. Often times at this age children can also begin to learn pre-math and Word development. Children develop emotionally during this time and learn to have security in their environment. Knowing your children will continue to go to school for 18 years of their life they need to have the proper emotional background of knowing that they are in a trustworthy environment and have security around them. There are also many teachable moments in which children can learn and develop it such a young age. I being able to have the proper kinds of caregivers around allow your children to have experiences in which they can develop relationships and resolve conflict between them.

AAA blinds helped us with our window treatments

March7

Working with AAA blinds to install and select our window treatments was much easier than I thought and our house looks better than I ever could have hoped. They make the process of buying new window coverings as simple as can be and they help you out every step on the way. Trying to select which window coverings or window treatments you like best online is like trying to buy a tailored suit from my website. First off, all colors look different in real life than they do on a website so you need to actually see the samples and feel them in real life. Another thing is, just like a suit, window treatments need to be measured to exacting specifications, any error in measurement can mean the blinds or shutters will not work properly. Thankfully triple a blinds has a failproof system where they help you select something from there fast selection and they also make sure it is installed properly by coming out to your house and doing it themselves.

We first decided to call AAA blinds after our old mini-blinds broke. My wife was just opening the blinds one day to let the sunlight in and they came crashing down on top of her. We tried to fix them and put them back up but the housing unit was very cheap and they kept falling down. We needed to buy new window coverings but after looking at the mini-blinds carefully we decided they were too ugly to buy again. My wife has always been very interested in Hunter Douglas custom blinds so we set out to find a showroom that carried a lot of their products. As it turns out AAA blinds actually carries quite an extensive lineup of Hunter Douglas products so we decided to check them out. Upon visiting the showroom we were very impressed by just how much selection they have. Not just in blinds and shutters but they also have upholstery, rugs, tile and other fabrics for you to design with. We brought in a few samples because we didn’t know that they do in-home consultation. We thought that in order to match up the colors in our home bring samples would be best. The day in the showroom was actually quite fun! Our designer showed us nearly every one of the styles and wasn’t shy about giving her preference. We selected some Hunter Douglas shades based on her recommendation and we even considered Roman shades. Since we couldn’t narrow down a color right then and there the designer said she would bring the final selections to our home to see how they looked in our kitchen.

The fact that AAA blinds will bring the shutters to your home separates them from the rest. I can’t tell you how important this step is because without it you really don’t know what this material will look like. Sure, that deep mocha colored shutter may look amazing in the showroom but you may find when you bring your Hunter Douglas shutters home that they clash with similar colors in your room.

wedding bands

Think of what makes an original art piece worth so much. Not only do we put a high value on these items because they are beautiful but because they are so rare and one of a kind. We stand in all of artworks like the Mona Lisa or the David because they were exquisitely thought through and executed and there are no duplicates. I thought about this when it came time for my fiancé and I to get engagement rings. The thought of just going into a jewelry store and selecting something from the display case seemed generic to me somehow. I wanted to look down on my finger and see a work of art, a priceless masterpiece. I knew that the only way we could ever have something that would feel priceless and truly unique would be if we designed the ring ourselves. In order to do that we went to Davidson jewels.

If you are looking for the absolute finest quality and purest form of diamond rings and wedding bands you cannot do any better than Davidson jewels. They are a collection of master craftsman and they deal only in the finest materials the world has to offer. Not only do they buy from the top diamond and precious metal suppliers in the world but they offer their clients something that no other jewelry store does and that is the unique experience of designing your own wedding bands. Clients are encouraged to be highly engaged in this process and that means anything from bringing in something that represents your love, favorite colors or even a written statement to or about your loved one. All of these items can be used when designing the many aspects of a ring.

Davidson Jewels uses old and new world technics to help create this jewelry. From talking about the ring to roughly sketching it to designing it on the computer and finally printing a 3-D model on their 3-D printer, you will be involved in every step along the way. The people of Davidson jewels will make sure that this is an experience for you that is as memorable and exciting as your wedding day it’s self. For the rest of your life you’ll be able to brag to your friends that you took the time to design your ring and you put thought and love into it.

Once your 3-D model of the engagement ring has been printed you are given it to try on. This is where you have a chance to tell the sales associate whether it is slightly too tight or too loose. Any adjustments that need to be made can be made during this time before they make your ring. The great thing about this process is that when it is all finished your engagement ring is tailor-made for you. It will fit so perfectly it will feel like an extension of your body. You are bound to love your very personal piece of art and be proud that you can accurately display your love on your finger.
