Avoid Being the REALLY Shocking House in the Neighborhood.


Be kind to your neighbors and think of resale value for the whole neighborhood when you decide on your exterior paint colors.  If you think any of these are great then you probably need a paint consultation before you paint next time.

Equally bad is to need a paint job and not get to it before it gets like this. Not only does it look really bad but it also ages your house way beyond its years.  Paint is a protection as well as a beautifier.  Wood will rot very quickly if not painted with a good quality paint.

Do you know a senior who needs to make a move to either a retirement facility or assisted living?  We can help with that move.  Be sure to check out our services available for this type of move.  We can assist in Salem, Portland, & Bend (all of central Oregon). Space planning, packing, moving  shopping, hanging art, getting curtains, anything that needs done to make it like "home".
