Please, Share Your Experiences …

This Month “Happy Homes U.S.A.” is 3-years-old. It originated as both a hardcopy and an online monthly newsletter (now only  an online read-on-demand periodical) which would feature all sorts of articles written by American homeowners and homerenters whom’s residences are in any and all of our 50 states.

Yet, as you can see, it has evolved somewhat from that original idea to what you’re viewing at this moment.

I’ve always been intrigued by how so many of us (millions) pour literally whole hours, days, weeks, and  months at a time into chatting online about everything but the challenges of home improvement with respect to the issues and concerns we’ve got with the contractors who are selected and hired to do our home projects.

As-is, most certainly this remains an extraordinary center for sharing information and ideas. These, of course, are related to various aspects of home maintenance and improvement in our country……..more

Government Boutique

[It’s truly a blessing to have this opportunity to share yet another story or more about how seriously our government officials and appointees are taking matters of home improvement. It helps remind us that government of the various states does more than just care about these circumstances ….. government acts.

Attorney General Commemorates Two Years of Sandy Fraud Investigation and Prosecution

“Today our focus has expanded to all aspects of fraud, especially financial and home improvement fraud, where shameless individuals have attempted to take advantage of those made so vulnerable by this tragic event and have forced us to divert resources away from those most deserving of aid to track down conscienceless thieves and fraudsters.”

Madigan Alerts Champaign Area To Home Repair Scams

Attorney General Warns Champaign-Urbana Residents to Reports of Driveway Paving Scam

“Any time someone solicits repair work by going door to door and asks for large sums of money upfront, it’s a clear sign that something is wrong. … … I encourage anyone who has received such a solicitation to call my office and file a complaint. Do not work with these individuals.”

Attorney General Lisa Madigan – Illinois



Special Holiday Message

Holidays are the prime steak of lots of business endeavors. Please, toss residential contracting into the picture, as well. These are times when we are so elated by the great holiday effects that we do not see the snakes. Blame it on the better mood or the lowered guard.

However, of the millions of honest and loyal residential contractors in our country, there are approximately better than one hundred thousand who are corrupt. This is a reason it can be a great idea to be certain that your holidays will be as good or better than you imagined by always being certain to:

1.      research contractors thoroughly

2.      be certain they are operating well

within the law of your state

3.      do not make any sudden or overnight decisions on contractors

4.      get several bids, from several

different contractors

5.      check out all references

6.      Keep in touch with HGRBS (We're part of your back up crew)
