When discussing home improvements, most people find the task daunting. Sometimes what stops people from taking the leap lies in the overwhelming details. A home improvement or renovation project should be viewed as an opportunity, not only to make your home more functional and pleasing to you, but also to add value.

Home renovation projects require careful thought and strategic planning to make them successful, to help reduce budget-busting mistakes, and to make the project a more manageable overall experience.

At least twice during the past six months and more times than I can recollect during the last six years, I have dedicated a portion of my monthly update to golf carts, including golf cart safety, how to register your golf cart, and golf cart-free zones to name a few topics. By now, everyone should be well-versed on the subject, but Security continues to receive complaints, witness violations, and issue warnings/fines pertaining to golf carts.

Warmer weather finally has arrived! We are all starting to get outside and enjoy it before Savannah summer hits us hard in the face!

I’ve seen so many people outside walking, riding bikes, running, enjoying a joyride in their golf carts, and headed to the pool. With that comes risks that some people don’t take seriously.

We’ve recently responded to ANOTHER bike accident. Fortunately, the person had the wherewithal to have on a helmet. To avoid being dramatic, I’ll suffice it to say the outcome might not have been so great otherwise.

What if I Smell Gas?

Natural gas can be a safe, convenient, and affordable source of energy. Unfortunately, it also can be quite dangerous. In high enough concentrations, natural gas is extremely flammable, and if ignited can cause an explosion. High concentrations of gas can cause physical symptoms, ranging from headaches and nausea to death from asphyxiation. In other words, a natural gas leak is something that we take very seriously, and we urge you to do the same.

Marinas Update

Spring is here, and activity is picking up at the Marinas. Down at Landings Harbor, spruce-ups continue. Staff have been busy repainting crossbeams on the dry racks, pressure washing the docks, and spring cleaning in the store. Just in time to help usher in the season, the Landings Harbor store is receiving new items daily and gearing up for summer, so head down to see what great finds you can snag.
