Categories: Tips & Secrets | Posted: December 12, 2017

Would you leave your bedroom window open all winter? How about tacking on EXTRA money to your Dominion power bill, just for the heck of it? Not winterizing your home and preparing for the upcoming cold season is the equivalent of doing just that.

So while you’re digging sweaters, jackets, and mittens out of the bottom of the closet for yourself now that the temperatures are dropping, remember to give your home its own button-up to save on energy and potentially expensive future repair bills. Just follow these simple steps!

Fall Home Maintenance Tips

Categories: Tips & Secrets | Posted: September 26, 2017

fall-leaves

Fall means a trend towards crisp fall air and the inevitable path to winter in Hampton Roads. As homeowners we need to make sure we get a head start on planning ahead for the colder fall and winter months. Your house will thank you! The fact is, proactive and preventative maintenance is essential to preserving the value of your home. According to Houselogic.com your home could lose 10% of its value if regular maintenance is skipped. Regular, routine maintenance enhances curb appeal, ensures safety, and prevents neglected upkeep from turning into costly major repairs.

Check your heating system. Don’t wait until temperatures drop down into the low 40s before realizing your HVAC needs maintenance or doesn’t work! As we stress at our Home Buyer Seminars, ideally you are under an annual contract with a favorite HVAC service company for seasonal checkups. But if not, schedule an appointment with a heating and cooling pro to get your heating system checked and tuned up for the coming heating season. Costs generally run $50-$100 for a checkup, but it’s small price to pay to prevent feeling cool air when you’re looking to warm up. Also, vacuum your air vents and swap out your filters (which we recommend doing 4-6 times per year).

Tune up your fireplace. In preparation for cozying up to the gas fireplace in your Family Room, have a qualified technician service the appliance, including having the airways of both the pilot and main burners cleaned to ensure they are operating correctly. Also, replace the batteries in your smoke detectors!

Seal and save. While the the temperates are still moderate, grab a couple of tubes of color-matched exterior caulk ($5 for a 12-oz. tube) and make a journey around your home’s exterior, sealing up cracks between trim and siding, around window and door frames, and where pipes and wires enter your house. Preventing moisture from getting inside your walls is one of the least expensive, and most important, of your fall maintenance jobs. You’ll also prevent warm interior air from leaking outside, reducing your energy bill when the temperatures dip!

Check your roof. Look for warning signs: shingles that are buckled, cracked, or missing; rust spots on flashing. Any loose, damaged, or missing shingles should be replaced immediately. Black algae stains are just cosmetic, but masses of moss and lichen could signal roofing that’s decayed underneath. Call in a pro roofer for a $50-$100 evaluation. A plumbing vent stack usually is flashed with a rubber collar, called a boot, that may crack or loosen over time. They’ll wear out before your roof does, so make sure they’re in good shape. A pro roofer will charge $75 to $150 to replace a boot, depending on how steep your roof is.

Fertilize it. During the fall, your lawn is getting ready to go dormant for the winter. Roots do actually continue to grow during the winter, so fertilizing and power seeding during this period is vital for a healthy, dense, and lush lawn in the spring.

These are just a few of the many things you can do for fall maintenance! For an exhaustive list, check out: http://www.bobvila.com/articles/1499-fall-home-maintenance-checklist/#.Vk3TKt-rQ2I

Categories: Articles, New Homes Chesapeake, New Homes Moyock, New Homes Suffolk VA, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: September 6, 2017

Considering we’re over 40 years in, we would like to think we’ve succeeded in that mission statement thus far. During that time, Napolitano Homes has built thousands of new homes in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News, Richmond, Williamsburg, and Moyock, NC. Almost every corner of Hampton Roads has happy families living in their dream homes built by Napolitano Homes.

Check out the map below to see all of the new homes neighborhoods Napolitano Homes has built in our long and successful company history:

The Floor Plan Design Process at Napolitano Homes

Categories: Articles | Posted: August 22, 2017

From concept to completion, the floor plan design process is a thoroughly extensive ordeal. Vince Napolitano, the president of Napolitano Homes, and Art Ross, a renowned home designer in Hampton Roads, spend hours and hours scrutinizing a new plan. Paying attention to every square inch of the home, the two make sure the plan has no wasted space, extensive storage, and flexible options that are important to today’s homeowners. When a preliminary plan is completed, Vince emails the plan to all Napolitano Homes employees for their feedback. With a wide range of insight and individual experiences, inevitably more changes are made to make the plans even better!

This video is a brief explanation why Vince and Art take such individual care in designing each floor plan, why it’s better to design from scratch, and how fun the process actually is! Take “An Inside Look: Napolitano Homes Floor Plans.”
