Hello, hope you are enjoying the fall season so far. If you haven't already followed RR's page on Facebook, please do so, since occasional updates are shared on there. Looking forward to connecting with you all! :-)
The town of Weymouth recently mourned the loss of fallen police officer, Michael Chesna, who was killed in the line of duty. His tragic death made quite an impact on the town, inspiring many residents to step up and support his family left behind, as well as honor his memory.
When a friend's sister posted on Facebook that she needed tabletop easels for a silent auction charity fundraiser she was co-hosting (to honor the fallen police officer), owner Robert of RR Veteran Contracting immediately offered to build and donate 10 wooden tabletop easels within that same week. Note: These easels would be used to display framed sports prints, framed autographed jerseys, etc.
Having never built them before, Robert wasn’t at all worried. He knew it was for a good cause, and plus, he already had a basic design in mind.
And so, he delivered on his promise:
Did you know in Massachusetts there is a Home Improvement Contractor (HIC) program? Offered by the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation, "the Home Improvement Contractor (HIC) law was created in 1992 to protect consumers and regulate the business practices of contractors." Furthermore, according to the HIC program website, "all contractors, partnerships, and corporations that solicit, bid on, or perform residential contracting as a contractor or subcontractor on an existing one to four unit owner occupied residential property in Massachusetts must be registered as a Home Improvement Contractor." Rest assured, RR Veteran Contracting is a licensed contractor (HIC # 188267).
A lot of times, customers ask for a realtor recommendation. So, who does RR recommend? Linda Mellett of Century 21 Marella Realty! She actually shares a lot of great real estate and home improvement content on her website, including this recent article, titled, "5 Signs It's Time to Sell Your Home": http://lindamellett.myhomehq.biz/5-signs-youre-ready-to-sell
Favorite part from this article: "Home improvements -- Renovations may be a wise investment, but it's best to avoid listing your home in the middle of a project. If you plan to sell your home as is, completing some minor home updates such as new paint and fixtures can be a huge selling point."

Massachusetts just endured another big storm. A Nor'easter dubbed Winter Storm Riley by The Weather Channel. And what a powerful storm it was, as it wreaked havoc on many homes and businesses. Furthermore, many people were left without power (and many are still without power). A map of Massachusetts power outages can be viewed here: https://poweroutage.us/area/state/massachusetts. As of this morning, nearly 200,000 state power outages remain. Read more on power outages here: https://patch.com/massachusetts/boston/power-outages-storm-aftermath-greater-boston.
See below for a photo I captured during the storm (I live in a Coastal area). Feel free to share yours too. Fortunately, the only damage my home endured was a partially damaged fence, and as a general contractor/handyman, I was able to fix it myself (see photo below). Stay safe residents of Massachusetts!
