Vendors Ready for Home Improvement Show

EUGENE, Ore. — As the rain moves through so does the need to make sure your home is ready for the wet weather.

Experts at the Home Improvement Show are available all weekend to get you prepared.

The show isn’t just a place to find the latest trends in remodeling or renovating. It’s also an event to make sure your home is weatherized and ready to go for the colder months.

Whether it’s an expert on roofing or rodents, you’ll learn how to keep warm and dry inside your home while keeping those creepy crawlers out.

You’ll also find landscapers who say fall is an underutilized season for getting in the garden.

“It’s a great time to plant shrubs and trees, a wonderful time. The weather is cooled off the plants are slowing down, so it’s much easier to transplant,” said Martin Gascoyne, The Country Gardener manager.

“Gutter maintenance, roof maintenance as we start to get the rain, it’s easy to miss leaves and debris that has fallen and the gutters start to overflow, down spouts are clogged,” said Chris Smith, Everyday Remodeling owner.

“Rodents can get displaced. It’s going to get colder at night. They’re going to be looking for a warmer place to stay,” said Lloyd Walker, Swanson’s Pest manager.

If you are looking to warm up, you’ll also find hot tubs and grilling tips. There are dozens of vendors there. The event started Friday and runs all weekend at the Lane County Fairgrounds.
