When it gets hot here in Stanislaus County - Go west young man! With the end of summer coming last weekend here in Modesto it was time to make an escape. The last couple of weeks of summer here in Stanislaus county was a pretty warm one. Temperatures all week were in the upper 90's and nearing 100 a couple of days. On those warm days it's always easy to get out of the heat, just head west. Saturday it was time for a day trip to "The City" San Francisco. It was a beautiful day in San Francisco with temps in the low 70's and mostly clear skies. I have been to San Francisco many times and have seen a lot of the city. If you have never been there of course you have to see the Golden Gate Bridge, the Cable Cars, China Town and maybe even Pier 39. Myself I avoid Pier 39 because of the crowds ...

Door Installer in Modesto  There are lots of ways to install a door. I have seen the old method of a plumb bob hanging from the ceiling, the level and some people just use the distance from the wall to the door to hang it. One thing is for sure; if you don't hang it right, it will bother you for years to come. You need to always consider the rough opening before you start, is it plumb? How bad is it out of plumb? A rough opening is supposed to be framed exactly two inches wider than the door size. This is to give you enough room for adjustment. In Modesto, there aren't any high levels of humidity unless you live on a lake or other body of water. If this is the case though, acclimating your new door to it's environment is important. If you hang the door and it swells due to moisture, you...

Modesto Ca Homes For Sale - With a Swimming Pool   It's summer time here in the Central Valley of California and that means it's getting hot!  At the end of last month we had several days in a row of 100+ degree heat and it's heading back up there again this weekend.  Some days were up to 110 degrees.  Now I don't care if that's a dry heat or not, that's still hot.  Now wouldn't be nice to dive into a cool crystal clear pool on a hot day like that?   If you are thinking about buying a home in Modesto Ca and you want one with a pool you have several choices right now.  Check out all the homes for sale in Modesto Ca with a pool.  Doesn't a nice refreshing dip in the pool after a long hard day at work sound nice?  How about lounging by the pool this weekend with a couple of adult beverages...
