Home Safety Tips for the Winter

We are very fortunate that our snow in El Paso only lasted a couple of days and was not too dangerous. However, if you know a bad storm is approaching, there are a few things you can do around your home to prepare for a power outage. House Beautiful gives their tips:

Prepare Your Emergency Kit
No matter where you live, it's good to have an emergency kit prepared in your home. It should have several items, including "a hand-crank or battery-powered radio, flashlights, a first aid kit (with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, aspirin, a blanket, non-latex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers, and an instant cold compress), extra batteries, a whistle, hand sanitizer, garbage bags, and a tool kit.

Fill Up Your Car
It's safer to NOT drive during a storm, but in case you do, make sure to fill your car prior to the storm. And, always carry an emergency kit for your vehicle.

Stock Up on Food and Water
House Beautiful suggests "stocking up with enough water for three days — one gallon of water per person per day. You'll also need food for at least three days and a can opener. "

Fill Your Tub
In case you water gets shut off, you can skip the shower, but use water from the tub to keep filling the toilet. 

Keep the Refrigerator and Freezer Closed
To keep your food lasting longer, keep the doors closed. Food can be safe up to four hours without the electricity. However, after the storm, be sure to toss "any perishable foods (like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy and leftovers) that have been above 40 degrees for over two hours."

Create Relaxing Rooms in Your New Home

Your new home should always accommodate everything that is important to you. While your living room can be a lively place for hanging with the family, the bathroom can be a relaxing environment for a long soak in the tub.

If you are building a new custom home, there are several design tips you can follow to make sure you build the perfect relaxing setting. Choosing a neutral palette for the bathroom is a big step for creating a soothing atmosphere. Consider such palettes when choosing your paint color and bathroom tile. 

Natural materials, such as stone tile, pebbled walls and floors, and wooden vanities give the bathroom a very organic and spa-like touch to your bathroom. Also, the more natural light you have in the bathroom of your new home, the better. But if there is little light in the bathroom, consider painting your walls white. Paired with light colored floors, like bamboo flooring, creates a natural light effect. And if you love taking long soaks in the evening, install a dimmer for a low-light, tranquil environment.

Buying or building a new home is an important step in your life. Pointe Homes is to see you throughout the entire progress. We are one of the top home builders in El Paso. Whatever your style may be, we can custom build your dream home. Give us a call today and let us build for you!

Create the Perfect Lighting in Your New Home

Lighting is very important in your new home. You can customize your house with lighting that is both unique and practical. Better Homes and Gardens discusses some tips to get the right lighting in the bathroom.

In the bathroom, "you need a variety of sources that provide illumination in three layers: ambient, task, and accent" ensure adequate lighting. According to Better Homes and Gardens, "lighting serves many purposes in a bathroom. It eases the transition from asleep to awake, guides you in your daily grooming routines, and helps you unwind after a long day."

Lights go further than just fixtures. Mirrors, medicine cabinets, and whirlpool tubs can all be integrated with the right kind of lighting to calm or energize you. Read their full article here to learn about the different types of lighting and how they can best suit you!

Stay Warm, Stay Happy! New Homes El Paso

We're lucky we haven't seen any bad winter storms. But we do hear a cold front is coming in! We know heating new homes can get expensive. To help cut heating costs, there are some things you can do around your house to help! Huffington Post gives their tips.

By closing off unused rooms, you can help prevent cold air from moving around the house and help contain the heat you've generated. 

Believe it or not, your ceiling fan can also help! "By setting them clockwise in the winter at a lower speed, you can drive warm air down towards you and your guests."

Add some layers to your floor. "Floors account for as much as 10 percent of heat loss if they're not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation, and rugs can be that missing insulation. They'll keep cool air from seeping up into the room..."

Grab some foil from your kitchen and put it behind the radiators in your home. It will reflect heat back into the home and not let it escape through the walls. 

Move that furniture around your new home and keep it away from windows. "Sitting by the window can cause radiant heat loss from your body to the glass make you feel cold."

And of course, blankets, sweaters, and hot water bottles still do the trick!

Buying a new home is a big investment, and any penny you can save is important! By following simple tips like these, you can help keep your heating bills low in your new home this cold season.

Keeping Granite Clean | New Homes El Paso

We know buying a new home is a huge investment, so it is important to take good care of your home details and features. When buying or building your new home, granite is a great choice for countertops because it is resistant to scratches, water, heat, and bacteria. And although it is very durable, it's a good idea to take the proper steps to maintain it.

Help your granite countertop stay resistant from stains by always using coasters, trivets, and keeping bottles of cooking oils off the counter. Sealing a granite countertop is a good option because it keeps the surface more resistant to stains. 

If a spill occurs on the countertop, be sure to blot the stain with a paper towel as opposed to wiping it to avoid spreading the spill. Immediately clean the area with water and mild dishwashing soap. Avoid cleaners that contain acids such as lemon or vinegar, or ammonia or bleach. You can even find cleaners that are made especially for granite countertops. 

Granite is just one of the many features Pointe Homes offers for our new homes. Find out about our many other home features! Plus, our features list can be modified to suit your needs and budget. Give us a call today at 915-790-1515 to find out what we offer in our new homes!

Christmas Tree Tips | New Homes El Paso

Christmas is coming up! If you are celebrating Christmas in your new home this year and you want to get a real tree, there are some tips you can follow to keep your tree fresh and last longer in a safe way.

When you are out shopping for a tree, be sure to look for one that is cut straight across the base. The straighter the cut is, the better the tree will absorb water. Also, be sure to look for a tree that is very green with few brown needles.

Be sure you have a big enough water stand that will cover your tree trunk and can hold at least a gallon of water. Check the water level everyday and make sure it is always covering the trunk. A humidifier kept nearby can keep the tree from drying out.

To avoid any fires, keep the tree away from the fireplace where sparks may fly out and hit the tree. Also, keep it away from stoves or even a window where it will get direct sunlight.  

We hope your tree looks absolutely beautiful in your new home. And we also want it to last you throughout the holiday season and keep you and your loved ones safe. Take care of your family, your tree, and your new home this holiday season!

    Tools You Should Have in Your New Home

    As time passes, your new home may need small repairs. If you need to fix something in your home, you can call someone to help you with the repairs. However, if it is something easy, you can take care of it yourself. It is good to always bee prepared with the right tools. House Beautiful lists the top tools you should always hold in your new home.

    Be sure to always have an assortment of sizes and types like Phillips, slotted, and square-drive.

    House Beautiful recommends a 16 or 25 foot Stanley Powerlock, which is big enough for projects around the house but not too bulky to carry around.

    It's best to get a multi-bit driver with hex key bits. "The bits have hex shanks so you can turn them by hand or chuck them into an impact driver or drill."

    There are two styles to choose from: traditional push-out and a foldout pocket-knife style. Always use caution when handling knives.

    Clamps come in several sizes and always come in handy!

    You always want to protect yourself when you're doing home repairs. Gloves can prevent burns, splinters, and cuts.

    Even doing something as simple as hanging a frame on a wall will be much easier with a level. The best ones to get project a 360-degree beam vertical out the front and out the side.

    These are just a few of the tools you should have in your new home to take care of simple jobs and repairs. To see the full list from House Beautiful, click here.

    DIY: Ceiling Style Changes

    Popcorn ceilings were once popular in new homes, but today, there are so many new ways you can add some style to your ceiling. House Beautiful gives their DIY steps on fixing up an older popcorn ceiling. 

    After covering the walls and floor with a drop cloth and cutting off the power to any light fixtures on the ceiling, wet the popcorn layer with water until saturated. Scrape it away, touch it up with joint compound, and then buff it. After this, you can then prime and paint it. House Beautiful notes, "if your house was built before 1980, test a sample of your ceiling tested for asbestos first. You can buy professional test kits at home improvement stores and online.Asbestos popcorn was banned in 1978 but could still be purchased in the early eighties."

    If you don't want to scrape it, you can also just cover it completely with wood planks. "Adhere thin (but quality-grade) tonge-and-groove wood planks to the ceiling with a coast of Liquid Nails, then secure them in place with a nail gun". Afterwards, you can finish it with a stain.

    Another no-scrapping option is to cover it with faux-tin Styrofoam tiles.

    The Benefits of Owning a New Home

    Renting vs. Owning

    Owning a new home can bring you security, comfort, and pride. It is a huge step in life and a very important decision to make for you and your family. Are you currently renting and thinking about buying your first home? We know it can be scary, but we're here to help! Here are some benefits to owning a new home:

    Ownership means just that: that new home is YOURS! You will always enjoy the feeling that you worked hard to buy this home for yourself and your family. 

    And because you own a home, you have total control over it! You no longer answer to a landlord. If you want to make any changes in your home, such as painting, home improvements, you don't need to ask permission from a landlord or worry about making a landlord upset. Any improvements you make in your new home will only benefit you and add value to your home.

    Your new home is yours to live in for as long as you wish. You do not have to worry about your landlord asking you to move or increasing the rent. With a fixed-rate mortgage, the payment you make in the last month of your mortgage will be the same as or even less than the one you made in the first month.

    With owning a new home, there are tax benefits of being able to deduct your mortgage interest from your federal taxes.

    If you have any more questions about owning a new home, give us a call at 915-790-1515. We're here to help you every step of the way.
