Fall Home Maintenance Tips

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


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 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:

40 Years Means Thousands of New Homes

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

Founded by Fred Napolitano Sr and Vince Napolitano in 1977, it has always been Napolitano Homes’ mission to provide the absolute best new home buying experience. 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.”

Napolitano Homes Featured in Inside Business “Milestones”

Categories: Articles | Posted: August 9, 2017

Inside Business recently featured Napolitano Homes in their “Milestones” addition, recognizing our 40th year as a company in Hampton Roads. View the full article here.

Founded 1977, by Vincent Napolitano, in Virginia Beach

Headquarters 1492 South Independence Blvd., Virginia Beach

The business Homebuilder and land developer in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk and Moyock, N.C.

Current owners Vincent A. Napolitano, president; Frederick Napolitano ll, senior vice president; John C. Napolitano, senior vice president; and Theresa M. Napolitano, assistant secretary

Milestones reached 40 years in business, building over 5,000 homes and condominiums.

Obstacles overcome Survived several recessions over the years, as well as 19 percent mortgage interest rates in the late 70s.

Keys to longevity “As a family-run business, the No. 1 key to our longevity has been the good fortune my family has had to work with the men and women on our team who truly care about our customers and the homes we provide for their families,” Vince Napolitano said.

What’s next The next generation of the Napolitano family has already joined the company, so there is no end in sight. Recently entered the Richmond market with the acquisition of Boone Homes. Company sees Richmond as a vibrant economy with a very bright future, not tied to the military presence that exists in Hampton Roads.

Napolitano Homes Summer Newsletter

Categories: Newsletter | Posted: August 2, 2017

A letter from our President:

As we enter the summer of our 40th year of Napolitano Homes, I’d like to take a moment and reflect back on how we managed to survive the ups and downs of the homebuilding industry over all these years. First off, my brothers, sister and I have been extremely fortunate to build homes for families in the Hampton Roads region which has had a stable economy mainly due to the military presence in our area. We have also had the good fortune to work with many skilled suppliers and subcontractors in constructing the thousands of homes we’ve been entrusted to build for our customers. Our working relationship with our hometown realtors has been essential to our well-being. But it’s the people who have worked, and currently work, directly with Napolitano Homes that has enabled us to continually strive to live up to the words of our mission statement: “to provide every customer with the absolute best new home buying experience.” Over all these years we have been blessed to have men and women on our team who truly care about both our customers as well as the homes we deliver for them and their families.

It has truly been a pleasure to see the transformation of vacant fields into bustling neighborhoods where family and friends gather to make life long memories. Driving through some communities we built 25 or 35 years ago, and seeing the matured landscaping and families out in their yards enjoying their neighbors, is a rewarding experience knowing that the work of our company is directly responsible for their enjoyment.

With all the exciting new innovations that have occurred over the years in the homebuilding industry it’s no wonder that today’s homes are the best that’s ever been built. I have a feeling we’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg. What will the next 40 years have in store for new homes? We can’t wait to find out!

The Siena in Fieldstone with Custom Built-Ins

Categories: Articles, New Homes Chesapeake | Posted: July 26, 2017

Napolitano Homes recently completed a GORGEOUS Siena in Fieldstone, a new homes community in Chesapeake located on Elbow Road.

This dream of a home features many fine finishes, the most prominent of which being custom bookshelves surrounding the Family Room fireplace. Rather than bringing their own furniture, the new homeowners opted to have us craft these highly detailed and beautiful built-ins. Who doesn’t love an abundant amount of storage space?

We also built this Siena with an incredible Kitchen with huge island (an 8′ island in the kitchen is INCLUDED in the Siena), luxurious quartz countertops, and radiant subway tile backsplash. Shiplap walls transition from the Kitchen into the Keeping Room, which is spacious enough for a buffet table and 6-8 person table! The Keeping Room is perfect for those wishing to use the Flex Space in front of the home as more living space rather than a Dining Room.

A full Generation Suite that is perfect for elderly parents, hosting guests, or entertaining as a playroom or Rec Room has a private entrance from the Family Entry, and it includes a separate Bedroom, Living Room, and Full Bath.

Learn more about Fieldstone in Chesapeake on Elbow Road by calling 757-347-0600. We’d love to build your dream home here!
