Home Repair Clinic - August Newsletter

As always, Wishbone is happy to bring you his monthly column:

We love treats...who doesn't?! Sometimes our dogs love treats too and they don't always want the store bought kind. But we do want to be sure their treats are healthy and safe. Here are a few treats your dogs are sure to love:

Mix one cup ofpeanut butter(unsalted and unsweetened, ideally) with half a mashed banana and some water. Freeze the mixture on wax paper or in a toy like a Kong and give to your dog when frozen. They will LOVE it!

 According to the AKC,blueberriesare the perfect treat for any dog. Blueberries offer healthy antioxidants and vitamin C.

This tip is not necessarily a treat but you can add it to any treat you make or even to their food.  Coconut oil comes with many natural health benefits for our pups. It will improve your dog’s skin and coat making it silky smooth, it’s also said to protect our dogs from illness and helps speed up the healing process if they’re feeling under the weather.

Wishbone says "Don't forget to treat your dog!"

We found this very healthy and very tasty recipe at www.iheartvegetables.com.



This vegan kale chips have a cheesy flavor and are packed with vitamins and minerals!


1 bunch of kale

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

1 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp parsley

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp sea salt


Preheat the oven to 400

Wash the kale and remove from stems. Tear into smaller pieces.

In a bowl, combine everything except the kale. Stir until well mixed.

Massage the kale with the nutritional yeast mixture until the kale is evenly coated. Make sure that none of the piece have too much seasoning on them, or they’ll be soggy instead of crispy!

Spread on a lightly greased baking sheet, ensuring that they’re not overlapping or stacked.

Bake for 6-8 minutes, checking every few minutes. Be careful because they can go from undercooked to burned very quickly! Every oven is different so be sure to keep an eye on them.

We're going to talk about ice damming. In August? That's right, you don't want to wait until the middle of winter to take care of this problem, be pro-active and head into the cold weather knowing you will be warm and saving money this winter.

The area in the attic where insulation is the thinnest is usually over the exterior walls. This is the spot which contributes to the most heat loss and where the process of ice damming begins.  Energy charts have efficiency ratings that can illustrate a drop in the performance of fiberglass up to 72% loss. This can result in an R-value of 1 per inch. Therefore, you would need 49" of fiberglass to get to R-49. These thicknesses can not be attained at the bottom edge of the roof deck. The result: lower R-values, snow melts and then you get ice dams. With High Density Spray Foam Insulation, you only need 3" to reach a 92% efficiency rating which is equivalent to R-50 of fiberglass. This thickness easily fits in the space at the bottom edge of any roof deck. The result: higher insulation efficiency, NO snow melt, NO ice dam, and guess whatJag Constructionsays "GUARANTEED we've seen it work for over 15 years."!

Head into our cold season this year with the confidence that you will no longer have ice dams. Give Jag Construction a call!
