The year has gone by so quickly, it’s hard to believe. But thank goodness we live in Hawaii. When mainland families are getting ready for the winter snow, ice and cold, we here in Hawaii only have to get ready for the holidays. So before the family comes over for celebrations and good times, make sure your home is in top shape.

Here are some quick fi xes for the local home:

Install new windows that will not only enhance the beauty of your home, but also beef up security so burglars don’t take away your Christmas. Options to think about are Simonton windows and doors, rated No. 1 by J.D. Power and Associates for more than six years and counting. Order the security package to ensure safety. This package meets all forced entry requirements while still looking beautiful.


Give the outside of your home a face-lift. From the curb you can see peeling and fading exterior paint on homes. Some homes are even covered with mildew and rotting bare wood. To help alleviate the problem, consider Norandex Exterior Siding. The siding comes in 18-plus colors and over 10 styles. All have a lifetime warranty so you will never have to paint again and will always be ready for future holidays.

If you are one of the many local families that set up more than your fair share of Christmas decorations, go green and install a new photovoltaic system. Make your own electricity while celebrating what a wonderful year we have been blessed with. Let those lights shine all night long without a big bill, and use the money you saved to buy the gifts you always wanted. Solar World Electric-made solar panels are a great choice. The panels are American-made by Americans doing the job right, and probably some locals, too.
