My name is Bill Renter. I’m the owner of Deck and Patio Company deck builder in Huntington Station. Hurricane Sandy hit my home badly, and 2- 50′ trees landed on the roof. Luckily my home was not damaged, but the thought of how I would get these trees off of my home scared me. Fortunately I have someone I could call and the trees were removed safely.
I’m lucky to have my electric restored at my home and office. Because I have this gift of power back I am able to communicate and help my neighbors on Long Island and Huntington township.

Bill, thanks very much for all your help. We are in Atlanta visiting our son in college. I don’t think we will be able to fly back tomorrow. Take care. K—–
We cannot thank you enough for your generous offer of help this weekend. Our deck was cleared carefully and quickly and we are most grateful.

The Deck and Patio company is concerned about old and poorly built decks. Decks are the perfect place to enjoy warm weather with friends and loved ones. With May upon us, the days are getting longer and it’s not too hot or too cool to go outside to spend time relaxing, firing up the grill, or throwing a party on the deck. For many, this time is generally spent on decks.
After the winter months, when snow and ice have hit hard, decks can develop trouble spots. Some of the common reasons a deck will collapse ranges from age of the deck, poor maintenance, exceeding its load capacity to improper building methods.
Below are some common tips to check:
Substructure – Check several different areas of the deck to be sure the wood substructure is still sound. This includes the ledger board (where the deck attaches to the house and a common source of deck failure), support posts and joists under the deck.
Railing and Balusters – These should be secure. Push on them to be sure there is no give.
Stairs – Check any railings or handrails to be sure they are firmly held in place; check also the risers and stringers to be certain they are securely attached. Keep stair pathways clear of planters, decor, toys and other items that can present a tripping hazard.
Lighting and Electrical – Clean any light covers to allow maximum light to shine through and trim any plants or trees limbs that may be blocking light. Be sure all electrical outlets, appliances and features are up to code, in good condition and childproof if children are present. Watch that any electrical cords do not present a tripping hazard.
Cleaning and Maintenance – Clean away any leaves and debris, since they can be slippery.
Outdoor Furniture and Storage – Test all outdoor furniture to be sure it is sturdy. Avoid placing seating right at the edge of the deck. If you have a swing or hammock installed, test the chains and ropes to be sure they are secure.
Surrounding Trees – If you have trees overhanging your deck, make certain there is no danger of decaying limbs breaking free and falling from trees surrounding the deck.

The Most Energy Efficient Hot Tubs
January 27th, 2011
The JetPak System and Full Foam Insulation Combine to Make Bullfrog Spas Incredibly Energy Efficient
These days most people just can’t afford to waste money. So, it’s important to know that your hot tub doesn’t have a direct debit line to your bank account. Many hot tubs out there claim to be energy efficient but may cost you hundreds of dollars per month on your electricity bill – a Bullfrog Spa probably costs less than $20.
Of course, costs vary depending on the climate where you live, energy rates, and how often you use your hot tub. One thing is certain though, a Bullfrog Spa is extremely energy efficient, which will cost you less money in the long run, all the while providing better massages, true customization, American-made quality and extreme durability.
Why are Bullfrog Spas more energy efficient?
Well, it all comes down to the fact that Bullfrog Spas are built differently than every other spa out there. Bullfrog Spas are the only hot tubs built with the patented JetPak System. JetPak Technology provides a more advanced and more efficient way to build a hot tub. The JetPak System eliminates up to 90% of the plumbing that is required to build all other spas. In addition, almost all of the plumbing utilized in the JetPak System resides inside the spa’s warm water so it recycles heat instead of losing it to the outside environment. Bullfrog combines the JetPak System with high-grade full foam insulation and insulated tight fitting hot tub covers to achieve maximum heat retention.
The result: A Bullfrog Spa holds heat better and requires far less electricity to maintain warm water.
In energy efficiency stats compiled by the California Energy Commission, Bullfrog Spas either lead or are top 4 on the list for every category in which we have a spa model. And, keep in mind, we didn’t make any modifications to our normal production spas for these tests.
