We don’t seem to worry too much about the roof until a storm blows through town, leaving a trail of damage in its wake.

Home improvement is much more than just a sitcom from the 1990s; it’s all about caring for one of the largest investments you’ll make in your life.

For thousands of years, shelter has been one of the most adapted structures known to humankind. Homes once started out as caves or tents that could provide protection from unpredictable weather conditions.
