Introducing Lisa Geroux

Many people know Lisa or have worked with her within our company before. For those of you who haven't had the chance we wanted to share some of the fantastic things Lisa does for KGC Corporation and also a little about whats going on in her life away from KGC.

Lisa has been married to her husband Ken for 23 years and they have four children.

They built a beautiful home in our "Thunderbuck Thicket" developement in 2004.

Lisa handles all of our Marketing, Accounts Payable, and she also does our Book Keeping. She manages to do all of that on top of her work for the Saddog Corporation which is a property managment company that she oversees. If that wasn't enough, she works part time for the U.S. Postal Service.

Lisa's interests include reading, cooking and spending time up at the cabin.

Lisa told us for this post that her burning desire was to "travel more". Look out Ken...

January projects that should not be ignored.

No one likes the idea of "having" to do chores around the house, but with the new year comes the list of things we should be doing monthly and the list that we should address once a year for sure.

#1 Check that fire extinguisher(s) are fully charged. Replace if necessary.

#2 Examine heating/cooling air filters and replace or clean as necessary.

#3 Test Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries if you didn't when daylight savings time occurred. Jan 1rst is a good date for you to remember too.

#4 Examine the electrical panels, wiring and electrical components for evidence of overheating. Test all ground-fault protectors.

#5 If the house has hot water heating, bleed radiator valves.

#6 Make a Video inventory of your home and possessions. Place in safe or safety deposit box.

#7 Check roof for damage and/or icicles indicating potential ice dams.

#8 Remove hair from drains in sinks, tubs, and showers. Use a drain cleaner approved for the materials in your plumbing system if necessary.

#9 Inspect roofs for signs of ice damning. Remove excess snow from areas of roof with low slope or poor drainage.

#10 Prevention. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Preventative maintenance is the best way to keep your house in great shape. It also reduces the risk of unexpected repairs and improves the odds of selling your house at fair market value, when the time comes.

Please feel free to contact our office should you have any questions regarding the operation or maintenance of your home.

Enjoy your home
