  • Romey talks through all of our publications and how you can connect to Rosie On The House.

Our article this week is on the lifespan you should expect out of your appliances:

  • Older units might feel bulletproof, but they don’t have all the bells and whistles.
  • Apps that let you see inside your fridge from the store.
  • What does it take to fix all those new bells and whistles?
  • Should you buy the 1st generation of a new feature?
  • Jennifer talks about Guild Quality and how we use it to make sure our contractors are qualified.

We welcome a new partner,  Above & Beyond Pool Remodeling.


  • Mary – She needs a new kitchen door and had a recommendation for a fiberglass door. What do we think of it?

Recommendation – We investigate the door and the direction it faces. Fiberglass doors are fairly new to the market and are made to look like wood without all the maintenance. Romey purchased Pella Window & Doors Impervia Fiberglass windows for his home and loves them.  He could also reach out to Freelite Inc.
