Dear valued clients,
Our business is continuing to operate as we navigate the current COVID-19 situation, and we are adapting our operations by practicing social distancing, and reiterating the practices of good hygiene, like frequent hand washing, providing hand sanitizer and gloves for the moving crews. We are also offering virtual onsites for current/ future clients during the current situation. We will do our best to keep our current clientele informed of any changes to current/ future moves.

As our client, your safety and health is our #1 priority during this state of emergency. Please consider the following guidelines to prepare for your move with us:

⚠ADVICE FOR CLIENTS REGARDING SETTING UP CONDITIONS FOR A MOVE: • Upon our arrival, please have your residence/ office/ items as ready as possible (cleaned/ sanitized and ventilated in advance) for the removal of your items. • It is recommended that you/ your representatives will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance from our crew. Our crew members will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance or more at the time of service. • You will assure continuous ventilation of the spaces we work in at all times. • Please provide dedicated bathroom(s), equipped with soap and paper towels for our crew members.

⚠LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES OF MOVING COMPANIES AND THEIR RIGHT TO CANCEL WORK (NATIONAL LOCAL MOVES): The Government has stated it is or will be implementing (as yet) measures to combat the spread of the virus. Such measures in place might impact our ability to provide services to you (including but not limited for us having to suspend or cancel in full the services) or the virus otherwise affects our ability to fulfill your relocation. This may place us in a position where we will not be able to accept any ability for any losses that may arise and we limit our liability accordingly. We are keeping the matter under careful review and will ensure that all customers are advised of any developments that may affect fulfillment of contracted services.

As our team at Homegrown Moving Company has been following updates, we are choosing to work with & adhere to the guidelines set forth by health officials and authorities. We want to do our part in mitigating the impact and spread of COVID-19 to the businesses and communities we serve, and we are implementing the following strategies to do so:

We have discussed with our team members what to do in the scenario that anyone is experiencing symptoms or may have been exposed to the virus. We have an understanding among ourselves to be transparent if somebody's not feeling good or may have been exposed. We understand the need to self quarantine for the proper amount of time, if this occurs, to avoid any further spread. In turn, we ask the same from our customers. In the event that you are feeling sick or may have been exposed, we are happy to make arrangements for another move date.

Use of examination gloves: Our teams will wear examination gloves while servicing moves as an additional hygiene measure and self protection. Gloves will be discarded after each move.

Due to the high demand of masks, we are unable to provide them at the moment, but if you would like masks to be provided for your move, please provide them and we can use them.

Our team will also have hand sanitizer, and we ask that they are allowed to use a sink or water source to wash their hands when available. Social distancing: Upon arrival to our customers' homes or offices, team members will follow the protocol of social distancing, allowing 6' between team members and you, our customer. We have always valued the professionalism and respect that accompany an introductory handshake, however during the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that our customers understand for safety purposes that we will refrain from shaking hands or making physical contact.

Proper ventilation: In move settings when available, we request that our customers open outside doors and/or windows to increase air circulation. All of the above will be effective immediately and remain in place until April 20th, until we can reassess the situation and make further announcements. We strive to continue to practice CDC/ Federal / State/ WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines for health and safety to prevent contagion in our community.

Thank you, Homegrown Moving

a nice sunroom
There are various types of sunrooms, from sunrooms with blinds, sunrooms with single slope roofs, mansard sunrooms, aluminum sunroom frames, small, vinyl, and other sunrooms.

Choose the right type for you: 

There are a lot of types of sunrooms. People often think about the sunrooms they’ve seen in big houses or on television. These are huge rooms with a glass roof. Well, these are the most expensive versions of sunrooms. Sunrooms are also called solarium or conservatory and we often think about big rooms attached to the house with lots of windows and roofs made of glass. Lots of sunlight and warm interior offer you to spend cold but sunny days there. And make you feel like you’re outside in nature. But there are various types of sunrooms and not all are expensive. If you want to build a sunroom, you can pick among these: 

  • Attached sunroom – basic structure, can be made of a DIY kit, usually the cheapest version 
  • Four-season room – windows, a roof made of glass, warm during winter months 
  • Screen room/porch – walls are constructed of mesh, habitable only during warm months 
  • Vinyl sunroom – cheap, easy, and the most popular one 
  • Aluminum sunroom – more expensive version 
  • Wood sunroom – the most expensive version of a sunroom but also a more appropriate choice for screen rooms 

Things to know before you start building: 

It’s great if you have enough space to attach the sunroom to your home. But space is not all you need. You need to know more if you want to build a sunroom. If you don’t have much experience with building and using tools, kits are the best option for you. And a cheaper version of a sunroom. You can save on installation and labor costs while using quality materials. But, before all these things, be aware there may be restrictions on extending your home. The best advice first is to check with your local building and zoning officials to make sure that you meet all requirements and have all the necessary permits. You don’t want any problems, right?
