5 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Monsoon Season

by Shea Homes Arizona on June 16, 2017

Monsoon Preparation
Rain. Wind. Dust. Hail. Ready or not, Arizona monsoon season officially began June 15 and will be here until September 30. So if you live in the Phoenix area, now is the time to prepare. Here are our top five tips to get your home ready for the monsoons.

Check your roof

There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to the “drip… drip… drip…” of a leaky roof. Before the monsoon rains come rolling in, inspect your roof or have a professional do it for you. Patch up any cracks or holes, and get recommendations on good roofers, just in case you need to call in the professionals.

Prepare plants and trees

Protect your plants (and your home!) by preparing in advance. Trim any big tree branches that could snap off and damage your roof. Stake down young trees that might not make it through an intense storm. And remember, the heavy monsoon rains that often come before the strong winds can loosen the soil and make trees more prone to becoming uprooted.

Evaluate your Home’s Drainage

If you’ve noticed drainage issues in your yard that cause pooling of water during a rain storm, make sure you have it taken care of before the monsoons hit. You may need to hire a landscaping company to provide a drainage solution that will keep your yard and home protected from possible flooding.

Install or Clean Out Rain Gutters and Downspouts

Rain gutters and downspouts are the best way to direct the rain that comes from monsoon microbursts or macrobursts away from your home. Don’t wait until it’s too late to make sure yours are ready to do their job and divert the rain away from your home’s foundation.

Clean out the Garage

Now is the perfect time to put the family to work and clean out that over-stuffed garage. Parking your car on the street or in the driveway could put it at risk during the monsoon storms since flying branches and falling trees are common occurrences when the wild weather comes to town. Make room in the garage for your car and keep it safe from flying objects, as well as hail, rain and wind.

For more information on the June 15th through September 30th monsoon season in the Southwest, visit http://www.monsoonsafety.org/.

4 Fun, Inexpensive Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 12, 2017

 

The key to Mom’s heart isn’t always a pricey gift. More often than not, there are other, thoughtful ways we can honor our Moms that they will cherish forever. Here are a few tips and ideas to get you started.

Before you start, figure out what makes your mom feel special and loved. A good place to start, is to think about how she likes to celebrate, encourage and show you love.
Mother's Day Brunch1.) Create a homemade brunch for her to wake up to complete with some of her favorite things – including a personalize color scheme and her absolute favorite breakfast treats! Make it fancy with a tablecloth, flowers, plates, napkins and glasses full of her favorite beverage. Voila! Simple, cheap, beautiful and thoughtful!

Family Outing2.) Take the whole family on an outing whether it’s a hike, a day at the pool, a picnic at the park or a day trip to the her favorite nearby destination, these activities bring the family together and result in wonderful, lasting memories. Again, think about your mom’s favorite things to do & what makes her feel loved.

Stay Home3.) Stay at home for the day and create fun Mother’s Day traditions. Find some quick and easy baking recipes that you can do with your mom or wife and enjoy later! You can even make the day competitive by playing outdoor sports and indoor games! Pick up a cheap badminton or croquet set to set up in your backyard and get the energy and competition flowing outside. Or dig up those old board games, build a fort and create a new Mother’s Day tradition.

Homemade Gifts4.) Make homemade gifts for mom with the little ones. These are the gifts that mean the most to her. Get some finger-paint at your local craft store with a pack of cardstock and make a collage of handprints from everyone in the family. Another idea is to grab ingredients from her favorite dessert (i.e. cookies or scones) and layer each ingredient, one on top of the other, in a mason jar. Decorate the jar with a piece of patterned cloth over the lid and tie it with ribbon. Bake the dessert on Mother’s Day for fun bonding time and a delicious treat. Better yet, send mom out on a fun trip by herself or with a close friend – could be to the movies, for a manicure/pedicure or another one of her favorite activities – and surprise her with a clean home & a freshly made meal when she returns. Add in homemade cards from everyone in the family for an extra special touch.

Say thanks to mom this weekend and tune in to our Shea Homes blogFacebook, and Twitter for Father’s Day ideas. It’s just around the corner!
