Welcome Home: Springtime in the High Country

The calendar says it’s Spring, but the snow is blowing sideways outside again today, and after a lackluster ski season, many locals we’ve talked to are looking forward to the end of snow and warmer weather. Don’t worry, there are still a few weeks, if not months, left in the ski season – but if you haven’t already, it’s time to think about the home maintenance itemsmthat have been waiting all winter for your attention. It’s time to do some “spring cleaning,” and in Summit County, that means more than flinging open the windows and turning the mattresses.Many Summit County homeowners don’t live here. Second homeowners need the assistance of local service providers, and probably a few good neighbors, to ensure that their property – their investment – is well cared for while they’re away. This week, we talked to Summit High School grad, and general manager of Proper-T-Solutions, Andrew Quinonez, about one of those maintenance items that many of us are very familiar with these days – those pesky dead trees. Andrew’s company offers a new twist on the tree removal solution – and a more affordable one.We’ve talked about the pine beetle epidemic in the past, plenty of times.The problem persists and homeowners need to know what to do about tree hazards on their property. According to Andrew, “As we move closer to spring, we will begin to offer our most affordable, most environmentally-friendly, tree cutting service to date. We will offe homeowner pricing, never before seen in the county. We have partnered with two other companies who recycle the wood and produce wood pellets, which is a type of wood fuel made from compacted saw dust. These pellets are extremely dense and dry, which in turn, allows them to burn with very high combustion efficiency. This is a great way to help replace high priced fossil fuels and provide the proper solution to the pine beetle problem that Summit County has encountered. We provide the pellet companies with the raw materials for production, and this allows us to offer tree cutting fo homeowners at a greatly reduced price.”Andrew’s company does more than cut trees; they are a multi-service property-management company. They could be considered a “one-stop” shop for all of your property needs. Proper-T-Solutions offers simple solutions for: local homeowners with everyday home issues, long-distance second homeowners who do not have the convenience of providing care to their home themselves, investment property homeowners who are looking to market/rent their home, or commercial property owners who are in need of yearly property maintenance and up-keep. From window cleaning to landscaping, snow removal to house cleaning (residential & post-construction), and of course, tree cutting/fire mitigation/defensible space, Proper-T can do it all! “The Proper Approach…The Solutions You Need!” Find them on the web at http://www.proper-t-solutions.biz, call Andrew at (970) 389 8095, or call us for more information.TheTeam@Elich.com is at Re/Max Properties of the Summit, 305 Main Street in Frisco.
