Building my own network of trusted professionals allows me to provide my clients with a few contacts when they are in need of specific services.

Strong winds or tornadoes have the ability to blow off roofs, or even just to remove shingles that are vital in protecting the home from rain, snow, sleet, or hail. The condition of the roof and the construction of the roof play a major role in determining whether the roof will be able to sustain strong winds. If your roof has been damaged whether large or small it is important to take a few basic steps initially to ensure no further damage.
We left off the other day with happy tales of my visits to Indulgence Bakery and Mossimo’s Pizza in Pelham. The picture above is a slightly dopey smile of pure, unadulterated, carbohydrate-induced contentment. High carb stupor might not make for the most glamorous self-portraits.
