Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Summer 2018 – 15 Tips For Maintaining Your Home in The Heat

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

—Henry James


Summer 2018: 15 Tips to Maintaining Your Home in the Heat


Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


Summer is BACK! Sure the days are longer, the air sweeter, the sun shines brightly, and the weather encourages outdoor fun, but the HEAT, MY GOD THE HEAT.  This weather can be a strain on your home, especially if it’s older.  The best way to handle the beating of heat, sun, and weather on your fortress of solitude, is TO PREPARE. That’s why we have created a simple to-do list to ensure your home survives for one season.


Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


HERE ARE 10 SIMPLE HOUSE KEEPING TIPS TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR SUMMER


Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


1.) Gutters: Check for Leaks or Loosening

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Make sure all of your gutters and drains are free from debris and leaves. Improper draining could lead to flooding of the basement and property devastation.  While clearing the gutters, make sure they are securely attached. A 5 cent screw is far cheaper than siding, roof, or landscape damage, or worse, injuring on a loved one or neighbor. Make sure your gutter drains are clear as well, so water may drain away from the house, instead of inside.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


2.) Leveling: Filling in the areas of your yard or foundation that are uneven

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

The unforgiving Winter can cause uneven lawn levels and low points surrounding your home’s foundation. Then comes Spring, with Spring comes rain. We all know the rhyme. Depending on your area, rain can cause flooding, which can lead to water damage around the foundation and, come Summer, thanks to those pools of water, AT BEST, they become breeding grounds for insects and put a damper on a Summer party. At worst?

……. Well take a gander at the above gif.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


3.) Windows & Entryways: Check the Wood and Sealing 

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Make sure you make the best of your energy bill. To check, take a screwdriver and make sure there’s no separation in wood or the sealant on your windows, door jams, decks, or railings. If there are gaps, now is the time to repair, before the weather turns colder and damage them further and cause a larger problem later.

26


4.) Check Your Roof

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

You don’t have to start off on your roof for this, work smarter, not harder. Check it from your yard and check for any damaged, missing, split, or loose shingles or gaps, caused by the harsh winter weather. CHECK THEM NOW! The harsh summer sun can be extremely damaging to roof shingles. You should also check to see if shingles need to be repaired surrounding chimneys or vents, if they do, don’t be a hero, get an experienced roofer to fix these areas. The cost of these simple tasks will be far cheaper than replacing your entire roof later. If you need vast repairs, now would be a great time to begin budgeting money to fix your roof.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


5.) Chimney: Check for Splits

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

After the thaw of Winter, your chimney has often taken 4-6 months of abuse from need to stay warm. Do yourself a favor and have a certified chimney sweep, to clean out your flue and inspected. Also check the chimney itself for damage and have it repair.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


6.) Inspect Concrete Tabs For Movement

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

This is the time of year to inspect all the concrete slaps around your home to find movement. In the winter, freezing water causes matter to expand which may cause them to move. Concrete slaps should drain away from your home, but if the gap becomes to wide, fill in the gap with cement or silicone chalk after power washing out the gap before sealing.


7.) Old Firewood: Remove or Replace

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Depending on your home, firewood is commonplace. The typical storage of wood outside throughout the winter. But as the season changes, dispose of that dead wood. The weather has made them either water logged, bug infested, or other problems that render them useless. The best practice for storing firewood is, covered, 18 inches off the ground, and at least 2 feet from a structure.


8.) Garden Hoses: Check for Leaks or Damage

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Winter can be murder on your outdoor water faucets for freeze damage. To check, place your thumb over the opening of the faucet, turn it on, if your finger stops the flow of water completely, there is most likely damage to the interior sections of the pipes and needs replacement. If the hose itself isn’t stored properly, you may need to check your hose for dry rot. If there is, just replace the entire hose.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


9.) Cooling System: Clean and Maintain

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

If you have to perform more than a simple cleaning, NOW is the time to hire an air conditioning specialist to perform maintenance. Why now? Because as soon as the heat increases, more and more people will notice theirs is not working as it should, filling up a specialist’s appointment book. While you sweat out the days of summer. 

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018


10.) Fuel: Check your levels

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Get a jump on the season and get yourself gas, batteries, chargers, and sharpen blades. Fill them up now and forget about it until next year.

11.) Lawnmower Blades

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Give the lawn mower blades a good sharpening now in the spring, when it’s pleasant outside, and don’t worry about it come August, when mowing the lawn alone is already an endurance test. Work smarter, not harder.


12.) Check Your Deck and Maintain Your Porch

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Make sure there’s no rotting or foundation cracking. If there are nails sticking out either sand them down or hammer them further in. Afterwards, determine if sealant to prevent further weather damage after the harsh winter. 


13.) Check and Clean Your Outdoor Cooker

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

For gas grills. Let the the grill cook, with nothing inside, for about a half hour. Then use a grill brush to clean off anything left on the grill itself. Use a wet towel to clean the outside of the grill. Then inspect the drip pan and clean it to prevent grease fires. 

For Charcoal Grills. Empty the grill and wipe out any ashy residue. Then clean it inside and out with hot water, a scrubby sponge and some liquid dish-washing soap. Let the grill dry completely before using it again.

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Summer Tips For Your Home 2018

Thanksgiving 2017 – 11 Thanksgiving Life Hacks to Make Your Holiday Easier

11 Thanksgiving Life Hacks to Make Your Holiday Easier

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

We all love Thanksgiving. It’s a great day to relax, eat, drink, watch football, and spend time with loved ones (and even not so loved ones). But if your the host of the holiday, it can be quite stressful. It’s a lot to worry about: Is the turkey cooked correctly? Are the mashed potatoes fluffy? Did the pies cook evenly? Where are those recipes?

It’s enough to make, even the most relaxed person, stress to the point of shaking

Well, we are here to help! Look no further than the Kerr team to make your Thanksgiving as Painless and flowing with ease as possible with these

11 Thanksgiving Life Hacks to Make Your Holiday Easier


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


1.) Ambiance

This is step one. Before you cook anything, plan ahead and make your guests feel welcome. And just because you want things to look nice, doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey Use pine cones from the yard, cook them on a cooking sheet in the oven for about 20 minutes on 400 degrees, to remove undesirables that have made the pine cones their home, and arrange them on a simple serving tray, or surround a glass covered candle, as a center piece for your Thanksgiving table.
Set the mood for your guests by setting up your own candle design. Use a simple glass, or buy one from a local warehouse store for extremely cheap, it doesn’t have to be amazing, you’re not opening a bar, just lighting a candle. Put un-popped popcorn kernels on the sides of the glass to give it a cool feel. Wrap a bow around it for added charm. Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey
Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey Use a pumpkin as a wine cooler. If you decide to make pumpkin pie from scratch, don’t discard the pumpkin itself. Line the interior with plastic wrap, fill it with ice, then place a few bottles of wine, depending on the size of the pumpkin, to give your guests a cute twist on their drinks!

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


2.) Recipes 

One of the hardest parts of thanksgiving that you can’t fix is space. Your counter can only hold so many items before it is full of stuff. Don’t clutter it with big, or even small, cookbooks. You don’t have room for THAT!

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Plan ahead. Print out recipes before, or copy them, and tape them to your cabinet doors. This will not only save space, but keep the recipe eye level, so you can refer to it with ease.


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

3.) Pre-Cut

Aside from space, another thing we can’t help is time. You can’t make more of it, but you can manage it to perfection. One of those things you can do is prep your meal by cutting your vegetables either the day before or the night before and put them in plastic sandwich bags. Do it to a precise level by splitting them up into separate bags and label them with the dish they are for. We are not all Gordon Ramsey in the kitchen, and able to cut veggies and such in one fail swoop. Take your time, don’t hurt yourself, and save it for later. Your fingers will thank you.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

4.) Clean Your Potatoes with a Dishwasher

Mashed potatoes are a staple at Thanksgiving. If you have a large group of people coming, make washing potatoes an ease by washing them in the dishwasher (no soap). This will not only make it easy to clean them, but it makes peeling them a breeze. Another tip to skin them, is boil the potatoes for a little bit, then throw them in ice water. The drastic change in temperature will shock the skin and make peeling a breeze.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


5.) More Potatoes 

As discussed earlier, potatoes are delicious, but so time consuming. Remove that task by cooking the potatoes in a slow cooker, or at the very least, keep them warm in a crock pot. You’ll have a whole other burner for gravy (or whatever). Also, use a little bit of baking powder, this will make the potatoes even fluffier.


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


6.) Use Your Coolers

Again, space is key to an organized meal. Don’t use up valuable real estate in your fridge on cans of soda, wine, water, or whatever. Use your coolers. This will keep the drinks cold, while keeping the guests out of your way and hot items off their shirts. Also, if you plan on making corn, a cooler can be used quite well to cook it. Though it keeps things quite cold, it can also keep things hot. Put the ears of corn at the bottom and boil a kettle of water. Then just dump the boiling water on the corn and let physics work.


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


7.) Use a Coffee Thermos to Keep Gravy Warm

Again, time is key! Make your gravy beforehand and use a typical coffee thermos to keep it warm. If it works for coffee, it’ll work for gravy. Plus everyone will be impressed, and you’ll look like a culinary MacGyver. (To be an extra wiz in the kitchen, add some soy sauce to the gravy. It really adds a great kick!)


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


8.) Make Pies Easy

Listen, we all love pie. But it can be a hassle. Here’s a couple easy tricks to help you:

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey Make your pie shell early, then freeze it. It will save not only time, but the pie will maintain its shape better in the oven. This will free up time later on.
Weigh down your pie crust with rice, beans, or even loose change. Just wrap the crust in napkins, or plastic wrap, or even aluminum foil. Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey
Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey To give your pie the perfect riveting around the outside of the pie crust, use an old necklace to give that perfect indentation. I recommend an old necklace, so you don’t ruin your Sunday’s best.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


9.) Perfect Stuffing

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

To avoid a mess, use a cupcake tray to cook your stuffing. This, not only portions out the stuffing equally among your guests, but this gives it the perfect amount of browning to the stuffing, while it cooks in the oven.


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


10.) Use a Wine Glass to Cut Biscuits

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Use an older wine glass to cut biscuits out of your dough. I’d say an older glass, just in case you put too much pressure and break the glass. But doing this will give your biscuits uniformity and make the cutting a breeze.


Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


11.) The Turkey

The Turkey is the centerpiece of this meal. There are several ways that you can spruce up the turkey, or save it if your like me.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Take a Look:

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Ice Down Your Turkey before cooking it to keep it from drying out. Believe it or not, this works. Cook the breast at a slightly lower temperature, this will solve the problem of the white meat cooking faster than the dark.

Slow the cook the turkey overnight to save the oven space. Yes, you can. And yes, this will make your Thanksgiving feel infinitely easier. Pop the bird in the oven the evening before and wake up to a nearly completed Thanksgiving feast.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey DIY Aluminum Foil Roasting Rack. The point of a rack is to hold your bird above the pan so heat can circulate evenly. Who says it has to be made of wire or cost a lot of money? If you don’t have the store-bought variety, crumple some sheets of foil into thick ropes and wrap them in coils on the bottom of your pan. Or go biodegradable and place the bird on a bed of halved onions, carrots and celery.
 Use Chicken Broth as a Revive Your Turkey.  Overcooked the bird? Before you spirit that platter of dried-out breast meat to the table, drizzle it with a little warm chicken broth. It’ll help moisten the meat and add flavor. This is also a good trick for perking up slices that have gone from room temp to cold. Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey
 Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey  Cook white meat and dark meat separately.  Never, never let dry breast meat happen to you. Check out this helpful video that shows exactly how to break down a turkey into parts, then cook separately with recipes like Butter-Roasted Turkey Breast and Braised Turkey Thighs.

Measuring Cup As a Fat Separator. The secret to great gravy is skimmed — not greasy — pan drippings. If you’re without a fat separator, pour your drippings into a large heatproof measuring cup and pop it in the freezer. As the drippings cool, the fat will rise to the top and solidify, making it easy to skim off with a spoon.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey


NOW!

All that’s left is time to feast.

Thanksgiving 2017 in New Jersey

For Clean Up, the best advice I can give, clean as you go. It’ll save up so much more time and leave you more space to cook.

And, as Always:
