Power Generators for a Safe and Immediate Response to Power Loss

- Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Winter is fast approaching in Massachusetts, and this means snow and storms are on the way. Although many personally enjoy the snow, winter weather can be a challenge for business owners. Storms, wind, ice, and accidents can cause serious and often long-term power outages. The measurable loss of business productivity will vary from business to business, industry to industry, but one thing remains consistent no matter how small or large the business: every business without power will suffer revenue loss or worse. Backup portable generators deliver a safe and immediate response for maintaining business profitability.

Without emergency power contingency plans, businesses are subject to the response timeline of utility providers. Being unprepared in an emergency outage will result in the loss of data, perishable products, productivity, and possibly customers. All of these issues can be prevented by ensuring that portable generators are installed and ready-to-go at a moment's notice. To find out more about backup portable generators for contingency planning, contact South Shore Generator in Wareham.

When home improvements offer the most bang for your buck - Warenham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 27, 2015

Cleaning up on spring home improvement projects requires more effort than many homeowners anticipate.

Remodeling tends to pick up as the weather improves, and this year is no exception. During the second half of 2013, the National Association of Home Builders' Remodeling Market Index, which measures how busy contractors are, was at its highest level since the spring of 2004.

When the report was released in late January, remodelers were expecting an even busier spring, with more saying they had been called to bid on a job or were already committed to a project.

Which home improvement projects pay off?

If you're updating your home with the aim of adding to its value, tread carefully. Some improvements boost value more than others, and in most cases, a project costs more than it adds in value.

According to Remodeling magazine's 2014 Cost vs. Value report, the average portion of cost recouped is 66.1 percent. (Watch the video below for some of the projects, small and big, that provide good value.) Of course, what buyers will think of—and might pay for—an upgrade is less of a hurdle if you plan to enjoy your fancy new kitchen or master bath for years to come.

How much you can expect to spend varies not just by project, but also where you live. Location will have an impact on materials, labor costs and trends.

In New York City, the average living room revamp costs an average $19,297, according to home inspiration site Houzz.com's Real Cost Finder. In Portland, Ore., it's $11,573, and in Louisville, Ky., $7,995. Shopping around for a contractor—with care to find ones with positive referrals—can help cut the cost.

Shoppers who are DIY-ing smaller projects should also check for seasonal credit card rewards. Discover's quarterly bonus from April to June awards 5 percent back at home improvement stores. Over the same period, Citi Dividend offers 5 percent on home and garden stores in general and Home Depot specifically, and Chase Freedom, for Lowe's.

Watch out for the caps on rewards earned: Discover, for example, eliminates the bonus after $1,500 in qualified purchases, for a maximum rebate of $75. Still, that's like getting two gallons of paint for free.

One of the better returns on home projects is investing on backup generators. Find the best backup generator to your specific needs on-time and within your budget, contact South Shore Generator.
