Storage Sheds for all of Your Yard Equipment

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 12, 2011

As you are starting to clean up the yard, put away the winter equipment, and get ready for the warm weather, you may be finding it difficult to find and store all of your yard equipment. Maybe you should consider a storage shed. There are many things to consider when purchasing a  shed for your backyard. Do you want vinyl or wood? How big do you want it? What will you be using it for? Garden supplies, junk storage, bicycles and other seasonal toys for the kids? Every homeowner has tools and equipment for every season to keep their lawn and yard looking great. And parents also have loads of toys to keep our children entertained, but keeping all of these things in your garage can take up too much room. A storage shed is a great option to keep all of these seasonal items organized, in one location, and out of site.
 
When considering the size of the shed you want, you should always consider what you are going to be storing in it. This will give you an idea of the size you will need, and help you decide where to put it in your yard. This will also help you see what other options you need for the shed, such as a ramp for your riding lawnmower.

If your shed is going to be used for storage of your larger lawn or yard equipment or, you will have to purchase a large, sturdy shed.  At fireplace showcase we offer sheds in both wood and vinyl, with or without overhead doors, and many shapes, styles and sizes.

Chimney Caps Protect Your Chimney from Nesting Birds

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 05, 2011

The warmer weather is on its way, and like many in Massachusetts, you love your hearths, but cannot wait to stop heating your home and open the windows. For many, the time to shut down and clean up the fireplace is just as fun as the first time we light it for the season.  It is time to clean out and clean up your fireplaces, stovesinserts and chimneys.
 
Chimney Caps are an integral part of the venting system for your fireplace and the venting system is an integral part of your overall fireplace system. The weather and the wildlife are the biggest enemies of your chimney. The birds are out and trying to find a great place to make their nests, what better place than your cozy, dark chimney. Birds and other animals contribute to your chimneys’ demise. All kinds of animals like to make their homes in chimneys especially if the fireplace has not been used for a couple of years.
 
When chimneys are not correctly sealed, moisture gets into the cracks and seams and can ruin the chimney. Brick chimneys are extremely susceptible. This is where chimney caps can provide extra protection. Chimney caps protect against all types of weather and wind, all of which can erode a chimney. Chimney caps can really prolong the structural integrity of a chimney.

If chimney caps are not in place this spring, the risk from weather and animals is dramatically increased. There are different kinds of chimney caps for masonry or stainless steel chimneys. And Fireplace Showplace can help you decide which style is best for your home.
