Certified Arborist John Eisenhower with Integrity Tree Service joins us to talk trees!

Jesse Sanchez with APS joins us too! He specializes in keeping trees away from power lines.

Tree of the Week: Jesse loves the Jacaranda Tree

  • They produce beautiful lavender flowers. T
  • They grow 35-40 tall and 25-30 feet wide when fully grown.
  • Sensitive to frost and don't over-prune.
  • They need to grow here in the Valley. Any further north, it's just too cold.

*The crew discuss planting trees safely to avoid issues with power lines as the tree grows. (If the tree grows 40 feet tall and the power line is 25 feet above a young tree......you've going to have issues. )

*John shares tips on safely planting trees to block unsightly power lines.

*Always assume lines are power lines, just to be safe.

Our Topic today is "Moisture Management" gutters, water drainage, harvesting and the potential damage.

-Many of you found out that even though we get very little rain in the desert, the potential damage is significant.

Romey Takes us into The Digital Newsroom:

  • Jim - His back patio has drywall on the ceiling and it's damaged. Should he repair, replace or do something else?

Recommendation - He can repair it. We recommend using Quikrete as part of the repairs.

  • Victor - Heard the show a few weeks ago about door replacement...what was the recommendation?

Recommendation - We covered Freelite's new product on this show...interior door replacement is easy and comes with virtually no mess during installation with the Home Story Door Replacement.

Rosie's #1 problem for Arizona homes.....It's the homes ability to handle moisture!

  • Many homes built after WWII completely ignored proper protection against water damage.
  • Rosie talks about some record rains in AZ over the last few decades.
  • Ignoring this issue costs big $$$
  • Start with a solid roof and overhangs drain water out away from your foundation.
  • Don't shed it onto your neighbors yard either.
  • If you harvest rain, store it properly to avoid breeding grounds for mosquitoes

Callers:

  • Jodi - They just remodeled they're bathroom and have been told to seal the travertine tile shower and also not too....what should they do?

Recommendation - We recommend sealing the shower.

  • Pat - He added a porch to his home and now all along the edge that is attached to his parapet wall, its leaking...Can he just paint over the wall to seal the holes in his wall or is there a bigger issue?

Recommendations in the next segment.....
