It Pays to Be Prepared

IS YOUR ROOF READY FOR MONSOON SEASON?

f there’s anything to take away from the events going on in the world right now, it’s that it always pays to be prepared to

If you see a small stain on one of your ceiling tiles, you might not think much of it now. But come monsoon season, that tile will be completely saturated with water and will likely fall to the floor, leaving a hole behind for more water to come in. If you have a crack in your plumbing line from a roof drain, it could cause a major breakage and flooding throughout your building. These are prime examples of “small” issues that are made big when heavy rain hits and your roof isn’t ready for it. However, you can be proactive against these potential disasters, and now is the perfect time. Just as you would make sure your air conditioning is running properly and has a new filter before the scorching summer season arrives, it makes the most sense to do your preventive maintenance on your roof before monsoon season hits. Dri Tech Corp can do a thorough analysis to make sure your roof is ready to handle a large volume of pounding rain. We’ll perform an inspection focusing on membrane splits, tenant damage, and cracked caulking and even perform a water test ensuring that your drains are free from debris to avoid a possible roof collapse. After 23 years of working in the commercial roofing business in Las Vegas, we’re finally seeing people get proactive about their roof care and maintenance. Building owners have seen an upswing in the occupancy of their properties that allows them to put more thought and money into building maintenance. Property managers who arrange

the best of your abilities. You may not be able to predict anything with absolute certainty, but that’s what preparation is for: combating those things you can’t predict. In Las Vegas, there’s no better example of a time to be prepared than when it comes to securing your roof before the oncoming monsoon season. Las Vegas gets rain during two distinct times of the year: just before summer and just before winter. These heavy rains are called monsoons instead of storms because of the sheer volume of rain that pours down in such a short period of time. Compared to cities like Seattle or Portland, which get a consistent misting of rain throughout the year, Las Vegas gets more of massive dump of water at very specific times. But no matter its form, water can be deadly to the integrity of a building. Monsoons do a great job of exposing the slightest imperfections in structure and maintenance because if there’s a way for water to seep in, you can bet the rain will find it. The problem is that the onset of a monsoon happens so rapidly that once it falls on you, there’s no time to react or prepare. You just have to wait it out and repair whatever damage it causes after the fact. That’s why it’s so critical to prepare before that moment arrives.

for maintenance look very professional in the eyes of their owners because they’ve managed to steer tenants away from tragedy before it ever happens. It’s a win-win for everyone. When it comes to being as prepared for monsoon season as possible, remember this: The cost of Preventative Maintenance is always significantly lower than the cost for repairing interior damage, lost rent fees, and damaged tenant relationships. So give Dri Tech Corp a call because we’ll find you the most cost-efficient way to protect your property and everyone in it from the rain that’s coming our way. “The cost of Preventative Maintenance is always significantly lower than the cost for repairing interior damage, lost rent fees, and damaged tenant relationships.”

SAY CONGRATULATIONS

With These Tech Gifts for Grads

Spring is all about new beginnings, and for many, graduation is just the start of something big. Whether your favorite graduate is heading off to college, serve in our nation’s military, or join the workforce, there’s a gadget out there that will give them a great start — or at least make you their favorite relative. Check out this guide to find the perfect tech gift.

great alternative for a grad who is out of the house! The best part is that this gift keeps on giving with every movie or show they stream.

For the Academic

This May will mark the start of a new academic adventure for many. AI systems like the Amazon Alexa and Google Home can make staying in touch and studying easier, while an e-reader could house all their textbooks in one handy place. Laptop cases, screen covers, and other protective gear can keep their technology safe from wear and tear. (After all, what college kid can afford a new laptop on a whim?) Charging stations and cord organizers can also protect their tech and keep their space clean.

For the Streamer

There’s no shortage of streaming services, and depending on what your graduate enjoys watching, you may consider gifting them a subscription. Nostalgic Disney lovers looking for some stress relief would certainly love a Disney+ subscription, but if you know someone who has an affinity for the dramatic sagas, a subscription to HBO Now could satisfy their cravings. Hulu + Live TV can also be a

3 Wellness Regimens You Should Follow at Home

At the moment of writing this newsletter, things around the world are a bit uncertain. People are being told to stay home and avoid contact with others as much as possible for health and safety reasons. Why not take it a step further by developing healthy habits at home? Here are three great ways to keep your mind and body happy while you’ve got the downtime to do so. Yoga and Meditation Not only are yoga and meditation good for your body, but they also do wonders for your mind, which is just as important to take care of in times of

crisis. If you’re a beginner to either of these practices, start simple. Find a quiet, distraction-free space to test some basic poses that you can find and follow online. When it comes to meditation, find a comfortable seated position, close your eyes, and focus on your breathing. This is a great way to remove negative thoughts and stress, if only for a little while. Cardio You might think that getting your heart rate up in the confines of your home without a machine like a treadmill or a stationary bike is difficult, but there are dozens of instructional videos online that can show you all the right moves to get your blood pumping in even the smallest of spaces. Some great options include jumping jacks, high knees, lunges, mountain climbers, and burpees. If you’re unfamiliar with these kinds of exercises, now is a great time to learn them and implement them into your routine. Nutrition If you have the ability to go shopping at your local grocery store, the easy choice might be to purchase processed and frozen foods. But in the long run, this isn’t the best way to take care of yourself or your family. Stock up on fresh vegetables and fruits as much as possible. Opt for lean meat over red meat and choose whole grains. The healthier the food you put into your body, the more mental and physical energy you’ll have to stay focused and productive during your time at home.

Take care of yourself and stay safe!

A Healthy Snack

SNACKING WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

There are many different opinions on the healthiness of snacking. Some people think of snacks as processed foods with high calories, but snacks don’t have to be junk food. Depending on what snacks you’re eating, and how often, these little in- between-meal bites can be highly beneficial or detrimental to your overall health.

yourself with healthy alternatives. Fill your fridge and pantry with whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and nuts and legumes. With those in your kitchen, you’ll have plenty of healthy options to choose from when you’re hungry.

People who have high cholesterol or diabetes can better maintain their cholesterol and blood glucose levels if they eat frequently during the day. For athletes, snacking helps distribute the consumption of nutrients their body needs throughout the day instead of all at once. This way, their energy levels stay the same instead of fluctuating with their meal times. If you find yourself in need of a quick bite, think clementines and almonds instead of chips and Pop-Tarts. You’ll still satisfy your hunger without jeopardizing your health or increasing your waistline.

Who Benefits From Snacking?

Healthy vs. Unhealthy Snacks

Depending on your weight, fitness level, and medical conditions, snacking throughout the day can be more effective than eating three large meals a day. Individuals who are crunched for time, have particular health conditions, are athletic, or are trying to lose or maintain weight all benefit from healthy snacking throughout the day.

People snack when they’re hungry, but they also do it when they’re stressed, bored, or have a habit. When people snack on unhealthy junk food when they’re bored, the result is weight gain. An excellent way to avoid unhealthy snacks is to surround
