"Frist and foremost, Rick Manning called me back within 10 minutes after I left a message on his phone and he set an appointment the following day to come by and look at what needed to be done. He had the quote for the work back to me in 2 business days. Once I made my decision to go with Rick, his EMPLOYEES (not sub contractors) were here within 2 days working on the house. This was an extensive repair job on the eaves and siding and they worked very diligently to complete everything in a timely manner. They always came when they said they would and they did a fantastic job. The best part is when Rick contacts you during the job, his question to you is, Is everything perfect? If it is not, he will get it fixed to your satisfaction. Rick has his own employees who are covered by workmans comp and they are very nice and very respectful at all times. They do great work. The only 2 subcontractors Rick used were the painter, Alfredo, and the roof repair guys. Alfredo was the most thorough painter I have ever witnessed. Fantastic job. The roof guys made the repair in my roof and it has rained 3 time since then with no water coming through where it was previously coming through. Overall, fantastic job. I have already talked to Rick about doing more work on the house and I wont even call for a price comparison. Rick and his crews are fantastic and I will not use anyone else for my home repair and renovation work. The best aspect of working with Rick Manning is that he does what he says he is going to do and he wants you to be 100% satisfied with his work. It is a pleasure working with Rick and look forward to the next project."

Facts About LED Lighting for the Holiday Season


There are so many great reasons to switch from using traditional incandescent lights to LED lights the holiday season.  Here are the some facts to help you consider your decision:

LEDs are safer

Unlike traditional incandescent Christmas lights, LED lights do not heat up.  This makes them great for lighting a real tree by reducing fire hazard and accidental skin burns.

LEDs are more energy efficient

LEDs use 90% less electricity than regular Christmas lights, saving you money on your holiday utility bills and reducing your impact on the environment.

LEDs last longer

LED lights have an average life span of 100,000 hours. If you hang your lights on Thanksgiving day  and turn them on for 5 hours per day  until New Year’s day, you will use about 200 hours per year.  LED lights last for 5 generations of your family!

LEDs are more durable

Since LEDs use light emitting diodes (not incandescence) to produce light, there are no filaments to burn out; so no bulbs to replace! Just plug in your Christmas lights and they’re ready for use. Also, since the bulbs are plastic rather than glass, there’s less chance of breaking lights while you’re stringing them up and less time spent fussing over how they’re packed up after the holidays. Just toss them in a box and forget about them until next year.

LEDs come in a variety of styles

LED blubs have a large selection of light color, size, and styles.  You can even find snowflake, rope lights, stars, etc…

LEDs are cost effective

A strand of indoor/outdoor lights can be purchased from retailers for as little as $9.99 a strand.

LED Pitfalls

While LED Christmas lights save a lot of energy and money, they may not be for everyone. Take a trip to the store to look at the technology first-hand, then decide if LEDs are right for you. Most retailers have displays that allow you to try out the bulbs, and some may even have entire trees or displays decorated with them.
