Tomorrow is Fix-it-Friday

Posted on 12 December 2013 | Category: Events, Specials

Fix-it-Friday was started to help our clients bring new life to those useful, sentimental and hard-to-find objects that are broken or do not work quite like they used to.

Our clients have found it difficult to find the “right” people to help them fix household items like furniture, lamps and other keepsakes. Armed with years of fixing experience and the right tools our carpenters and handymen make us the perfect resource to help save and fix your household objects and give them new life. Just bring the items you want fixed by the shop at 1046 Gage St (Alley Shop) in Winnetka between 9-5:00 this Friday. We’ll let you know if they can be fixed and give you a detailed cost estimate.

Enter Tower Court at the intersection of  Tower Rd and Greenbay Rd and proceed north down the alley -or- park at Hubbard Woods Park (at the Hubbard Woods train station) and walk south 2 doors down the alley and you’ll see our sign:

Give us a call if you have questions 847-922-3418 and we’ll see you on Friday!


Get Your Mind in the Gutter.

Posted on 14 September 2013 | Category: Specials

Know your gutter options. Gutters and downspouts are made out of aluminum, vinyl, galvanized steel, stainless steel and copper, depending upon your needs. Copper is handsome, never rusts and never needs painting — but it’s also expensive. Steel and aluminum gutters, on the other hand, are moderately priced and are the types most homeowners choose. If you are unsure which gutter best suits your needs, Get Dwell can help you determine the best choice for your particular house and budget.

Free estimate for gutter and downspout repair or replacement before the fall storm season hits hard

Gutter and downspout systems handle vast amounts of water during a rainstorm and if not properly maintained, this water can flow down house walls, windows or doors and begin to flood a basement pretty quickly. A great deal of damage can be done during a single rainstorm.

Underperforming gutters and downspouts, at the very least, can contribute to paint failure, decay of the house structure and undermining the foundation. Over time, even the best gutter systems can begin to fail. Maintaining or replacing gutters and downspouts is an essential seasonal task and fall is prime time to evaluate the health and longevity of your gutters and downspouts. Give us a call today.

Molds have the potential to cause health problems.
Research on mold and health effects is ongoing. The EPA states that molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic reactions to mold are common. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold.
