The long dark winter is finally over and warm sunny days are ahead! If you have a cottage now is the time to take a road trip and open the cottage for the season. It’s important to have a checklist of items to ensure nothing is forgotten leading to costly bills. One of the more important items is checking for leaks in plumbing or propane lines. You can do this by simply using soapy water and watching for bubbles. Disinfecting and cleaning up after rodents is not fun at all but it might give you the opportunity to see where they are accessing and seal any areas. Always call a professional if you have any concerns.

Spring is the time that most homeowners plan their annual projects with excitement. Whether it is a maintenance issue like a roof repair or something new like a deck or Muskoka Room you always want to do your research when choosing a contractor. Make sure the contractor has current liability insurance, WSIB and ask about any referrals.

Your Chamber of Commerce and other local associations are also good resources when researching for professionals in your area.

GBS Contracting Services Inc is a member in good standing of the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce, The Muskoka Builders Association and the Better Business Bureau.
