New Year, New Kitchen
How's this for the start of 2020? Dark and light provides a playful contrast and warm ambience, thanks to wood tones in the beams and shelving, as well as the rich leather bar stools. The gleaming marble backsplash balances the dark cabinets and countertops while open shelving elminiates a long back wall of boring cabinets, bringing depth and interest to the space.

Outdoor Smarts for a Wonderful Winter
It's Raining, it's Storming, are your Gutters & Drains Performing?
We're officially in the "wet" season - which means that debris-clogged gutters and exterior drains aren't just an eyesore - they're a hazard.

"Every winter, we see clients whose exterior drains have clogged, causing water to back up and into the house, soaking carpets, warping wood floors and damaging furniture," says Joel Moss, co-owner of Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita.
Prevention is key. Many losses that occur from gutters blackflowing, debris accumulating on roof materials that cause leaks or other types of property neglect are usually not covered by standard homeowner insurance policies. "We're often called out before there's a problem - we're able to provide exterior drain and gutter cleaning, as well as an assessment of potential problem areas. It's a tiny price to pay for peace of mind," explains Moss.

Even with prevention, it's good to have a plan in place should the worst still happen. "Expediency is vital when it comes to water damage," says Moss. "The faster the response, the less damage." When it comes to water, minutes matter. "The difference in time between being able to dry a wood floor with professional-grade tools and having to rip it out and replace it because water sat too long is quite narrow. The same goes for drywall, upholstery and more. The moment a homeowner recognizes that damage has been done, they need to call a 24/7 restoration company who can get on site in minutes, put a stop to ongoing damage and make a plan for mitigation and repair. If it's determined that the client will be filing a claim with their insurance, we'll work directly with the homeowner's insurance company on behalf of the client to reduce their stress," explains the IICRC-certified water restoration specialist.
"The goal is always to return the home and its contents to their original condition - or better," shares Moss. "We do it fast, because we know what it's like to be displaced or inconvenienced by emergencies," says the SCV resident. "We want our neighbors to feel confident that we'll do everything we can to put their lives back together."
