Well, it is the last day to Say we can officially say Happy New Year as we enter the second month of 2019. Wow! January went fast.
As I reflect on the past year, I am truly Thankful. I am thankful for my loving  wife Teresa. Thankful that one year after a diagnosis of breast cancer she is now cancer free. I am thankful for her positive spirit and steadfast growing faith through adversity.

I am thankful for the gift of five children. Andrew and peter helping in the business, Michaela beginning her career teaching 7th grade in Los Banos, Joseph in his junior year of college at Humboldt State and Grace, a junior at Del Oro High School.

Eleven years ago I knew it was time for me to leave the corporate world.  My career started after college as an owner of Subway Sandwiches in Tahoe City California. I had five years as a Franchise owner, Ten years with Starbucks Coffee and 4 years With Chipotle Mexican Grill.
In 2008 we moved to Rocklin and I began working at REI. I found myself still longing…

Beyond the Windows

One of the great things about being a local family owned business is that we have many opportunities to “give forward” in our community. At Lighthouse we focus our giving on Schools, Sports and Seniors.

Once a month we provide a free service to a Senior in our area by doing a sparkling job on their windows, inside and out. As you can see from the photo, we sponsor sports activities and donate to our local schools to keep athletics as an important part of the culture.

It gives me and my family great joy to be able to contribute to the success and happiness in our community.



Best Wishes,

John

6 Things Every Realtor Should Know About Windows

In preparation for a home inspection and preferably prior to listing a home, the windows and any sliding doors need careful attention. Cleaning and troubleshooting will go a long way to insuring a smooth sales transaction.

Open each window and check for ease of operation. Sliding windows or doors may have worn rails. Some are easily adjustable with the turn of a screw. A silicone spray may help sliding operation. (Do not use WD40) Windows that slide up and down often have broken balance channels. These can be easily replaced for smooth operation. Look for failed Panes. Some are very obvious but often a failed pane is subtle. Look for diagonal lines across glass, spotting, or fog. This is best done when windows are clean. Many window manufactures offer a lifetime warranty for the life of the first owner. If the seller is the first owner, take advantage of the warranty before you list. The manufacturer will have the address on file. Windows are the largest surface fixture in any home.

How can I select the right window cleaner for my business?

Image
Our windows and sidewalks are the first impression that our customers have of our business.  A business with a clean front entrance and clean windows reflects the quality of service for any establishment.
How can I select the right window cleaner for my business? Below are 8 simple guidelines to use in selecting a window cleaner in your area that will be the perfect fit for your cleaning needs.

1.Is the company a local business?  A local business will be more reliable and cost effective. There are many companies that will show up on a Google search that are not the actual contractors doing the work. Find a local business and contact them directly. Cutting out a middle man will allow you to negotiate with the actual window cleaning service in your area.

2.How long has the business been operating? There are many start- up cleaners out there. Many are inexperienced and not insured. Finding an established business allows you the confidence of quality workmanship, reliable scheduling and…
