For most of us, Fall is about the beauty of the colorful leaves, the flavor of a pumpkin spice latte, and the fun of Halloween.  It is also a good time to prepare your home for rough conditions, as the first winter storm has a habit of sneaking up on you (unless you happen to live in one of those always-sunny states).


Below are some handy tips to help you prepare your home for cooler weather:


Look into some new storage options to make sure you have somewhere to keep your outdoor items that are safe and secure.  This includes everything in your garage, shed, etc.  A color coded system of storage bins works well for sorting small things, while heavy duty wire shelving or open steel shelving will work for heavier objects.  You also need to ensure that your outdoor furniture is protected from the elements with tarps to avoid cold moisture which can freeze and cause damage.

Everything you can do to help your lawn and garden survive the cold will pay dividends in the spring.  That means keeping up with regular mowing and watering of grass, and clearing fallen leaves.  Furthermore, the perennials in your garden should be trimmed with pruning shears.  Also, keep your patio areas from getting grimy and slippery by pressure washing them.



As Fall moves towards winter, icy mornings will become more common and you need to ensure that the weather doesn’t affect your ability to go about your daily business.  Driveway heating cables will help you do that by eliminating unwanted ice.  Moreover, de-icing cables can be used to eliminate ice on roofs to avoid ice dams and snow buildup.

As the nights will become darker earlier in the coming months, you may need to think about adding more illumination to your yard or outdoor pathway to give you better access after the sun goes down, and also boost your overall security. During the Fall and Winter season, outdoor lighting becomes very important.

Fall is here, which means it’s time to get your backyard ready for the cold weather ahead.  Though they may seem like daunting tasks, you have to keep up with things like falling leaves, clogged gutters, and overgrown trees and shrubs.  The following tips will make the process much easier.


In addition to a lawn mower, make sure you have the following on hand:

  • Rake
  • Pruning Shears
  • Tree Trimmer
  • Broom
  • Leaf Bags
  • Trash Bags
  • Heavy-Duty Gloves
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Pressure Sprayer
  • Spreader
  • Tarps

1.) Keep in mind that the leaves will fall at their own pace, likely giving you little trouble some weeks, and then dropping rapidly at once.  Create space in your schedule to clean up the leaves little by little so that when the work gets tougher you haven’t already fallen behind.


2.) Finish bagging the leaves before the first snowfall. If you have a mulch mower, you can also turn them into clippings for fertilization. If you don’t have a mulch mower, use bark mulch.

3.)  After all of the leaves have fallen, clean your gutters.   This may be your least favorite fall chore, but clearing out mushy leaves in winter or spring is far worse.

4.) Use pruning shears to cut back older or decaying branches from your perennials. You should also mulch the soil around the plants to protect them from ice and freezing. Continue to water these plants when there is a lack of rain or snowfall.

5.) Spray weeds like dandelions and clovers in the yard with a herbicide.

6.) Apply a dry fertilizer to your lawn and lay grass seed to fill in sparse areas or dead patches in the yard.


7.)  Plant bulbs in fall for spring.

8.) Once the cold weather hits, wrap tree trunks and shrubs to protect them from the bright and potentially dangerous winter sun. It should remain there until early spring.

9.)  As the days get shorter and the nights longer, you may want to add outdoor lights to your yard or pathway, which will enhance your overall security and make your home look more appealing.

10.) Before the end of the season, give your grass a final cut with your mower on a slightly lower setting than normal.  This length of grass will do well under the snow.


11.)  Gather winter supplies from the garage or shed and store summer and fall equipment.  If your outdoor furniture or lawn machinery will be sitting outside all winter, they should be protected with a tarp to prevent moisture from freezing and causing damage. offers a wide selection of yard cleanup and storage products.  We’ve got you covered with quality products at low, affordable prices.

Office supply tips for your Home or Small Business

Setting up your home office or running a business requires big ticket items, including computers, printers, security systems, office furniture and office decor.  Along with these purchases you can pick up useful products that will aid you in such business tasks as record keeping, marketing, security and organizing.  Having all of your office supplies handy will make your business more efficient and improve productivity.




For a small business, organizing your inventory using cash registers with bar code scanners can help you by updating your records instantly.  You may also need a thermal printer for customer receipts.  Featuring a durable construction frame, the device will cope well in busy environments and function to optimal performance under a heavy workload.

Keeping records organized in your home is simpler, yet just as essential.  Use the basics, like binders, clipboards, memo pads, dry erase markers, sticky notes and labels, to keep your taxes and bills sorted and easy to find.



Deelat Industrial offers several products that can help a small business create marketing collateral in a do-it-yourself fashion.  Use a paper creaser to produce manuals, handbooks and other paper materials.  Do you need to create business cards in bulk?  You can use an automatic card cutting machine, which can cut at varying widths and lengths using a range of cardstock thicknesses.  Finish off your marketing materials by laminating them with a hot laminator.



Storing your cash in a drawer or cash box is essential when running a small business.  It’s not a bad idea to keep a cash box at home, too, for emergencies.


Similarly, a professional paper shredder can get heavy use in both environments.  In addition to a range of shredders that can destroy confidential papers, Deelat sells heavy duty shredders that can destroy credit cards, CDs, floppy disks and DAT cartridges.

Basement Renovation Ideas and Tips

When the square footage of a house begins to feel inadequate, many homeowners take on a basement renovation project as a way to expand their living space.  A basement space can be transformed from a dusty, cluttered wasteland into office space, a play area for children, an in-law suite for visiting relatives, or just a nice bonus room for the family.


However, it’s a costly and complicated procedure that requires the right know-how and the proper tools.  Below are some of our top tips for basement development or renovation:


The first important step is to do proper measurements and checks to make sure you have the correct dimensions and that you are aware of any potential problems.  For example, you may need an infrared thermometer to detect temperature troubles with leaky pipes, etc.  You may also require a carbon monoxide meter, an insulation tester, or a humidity meter to truly assess the situation.

If you are intending to use the basement for family members as living space, you’ll need a full or half bath to accommodate them.  Thus, plan to run the new PVC pipe behind a new wall before it is nailed into place.  If you are setting up a bonus room for your family to enjoy, forget plumbing and focus on a thick carpet and heat-resistant padding.  If your basement will become a playroom for the kids, carpet tiles or playground tiles might be all you need.

You will most likely end up using almost every kind of tool imaginable, so stock up on the following to be fully prepared:  screwdrivers, hammers, pliers, socket sets, saws and blades, and vises.  Depending on how elaborate your renovation is, you may also require a demolition hammer to break up concrete or a drill and rotary hammer to drill through it.

One of the main issues you can have with a basement conversion is that it can seem cooler than the rest of your house, so you need to make sure you have the right flooring or carpeting to help it feel more welcoming.  However, if you install an in-floor heating system to keep the basement warm, skip the thick carpeting and heat-resistant padding as they will impair the efficiency of the in-floor heating system.  Furthermore, you will most certainly need to insulate your basement walls; foam panel insulation is the easiest type to install for this application.

Tips for Building a New Backyard Deck or Patio

There is a deck or patio to fit your home, lifestyle and budget whether you’re planning a modest retreat or an elaborate space built for outdoor entertaining.  The following are a few tips to think about before planning to build a deck or patio.

deck 8


Invest in good screws.  Stainless steel or coated screws made for pressure treated wood will resist corrosion.

Your primary material options are wood, vinyl or composite.  Wood is the most attractive aesthetically, but it must be treated periodically or it will rot.  Vinyl decking will last forever without maintenance, but it looks like plastic.  Composite decking offers the look of real wood with the longevity of a completely synthetic material.  Vinyl and composite decking costs more than wood.

deck 3

You don’t have to go with the commonplace railing and spindles that accompany most decks.  Deck railings can be made from vinyl, composites, glass, metal and cabling.

deck 4

According to your building codes and depending on the height of your deck, you may not need a railing at all.

Incorporate advanced features into your deck, like lighting, planters, a fan and/or a built-in bench and even a sound system.  Deelat sells a wide range of solar lighting products for deck structures, including post cap, wall and pedestal-mounted accent, and step lights.

Construct a base for the patio from sand and gravel, or concrete.  Generally speaking, the base should be from 6 to 8 inches deep.

A patio should have edging to keep weeds and overgrown grass at bay.  Edging can be made of bricks, gravel, cement blocks or stones.  Furthermore, a patio can be edged with flower beds.

deck 5

Lights should be used to make the patio an inviting place.  Solar landscape lights can be used to demarcate the path to the patio as well as its perimeter.

In addition to solar powered lights, Deelat offers BBQ grills and picnic tables that can be used on either decks or patios.  If you need to cook skewered foods such as meats and vegetables in large numbers, the BBQ Grill with rotary skewers (D1774580) is designed to ensure even cooking.  Deelat’s synthetic wood picnic table may be the perfect match to your deck’s stain color.
