The Tourney Group - In the Community This Week

The Tourney Group is passionate about our community and we are passionate about giving back.  This week we will be involved in two very special events that will raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network and the Regina Humane Society.

RE/MAX and the Tourney Group are proud supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network.  Not only do we donate a portion of our commission from every transaction to CMN we also donate at National and International conferences, as well as local events.  What is great is that all money raised in Saskatchewan stays in Saskatchewan and goes towards the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.

The Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is dedicated to raising funds

The warmer temperatures have finally arrived and the snow is starting to melt.  We are all prepared for the warmer weather, but is your house?

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind as the snow begins to melt and to ensure that your house stays dry.

The Roof

With the extended period of cold temperatures the snow has stayed packed on our roofs.  What you want to do is rake as much snow off the roof as possible.  Only go on your roof if it safe to do so.  We recommend that you hire a snow removal company to remove the snow for you.

Soffit and Eaves

Check the soffits to make sure there is no debris that could stop the flow of water and also check for signs of ice damming.
Make sure that your downspouts are down and extended well away
