Window Shopping: Five Tips to Follow

May 02, 2017

You have a window of opportunity – act now!

When you’re window shopping, it’s fun to peek in different places. With that in mind, you might shop for windows online, looking at the many available options and “listening” to what other people have to say.

Where to start? Take a peek at this comment, recently posted on Angie’s List:

 “Our house is 19 years old and the original windows were cheap metal-framed builder grade windows. The seals had broken on some of them and they tended to leak. We started looking to replace the glass and then decided we might want to replace the windows. This is something totally out of our knowledge bank. We have had houses for over 30 years but never replaced windows.”

 Sound familiar? If you’re not a window expert, keep these tips in mind as you shop:

  1. The right windows will help you lower utility bills and reduce noise pollution. Ask about energy-efficient options that protect your home investment.
  2. Look for window solutions that address all of your current concerns, including wood rot, drafts and condensation.
  3. Consider how easy the windows will be to clean. Are they designed to make cleaning the inside and outside as simple as possible?
  4. Don’t settle for white – unless you want white! Ask for inside and outside color options or designs that truly complement your décor.
  5. Expect a lifetime buyer warranty – you don’t want to be buying windows again in five years.

Once you look at the options, Lee Company looks great! And you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s more from our customer’s post on Angie’s List:

 “The big issue to us was to have good windows installed properly. The installation was key. Lee Company offered the best solution…They showed up on time and removed and installed all 20 of our windows in about 8 hours. Window installation is quite invasive of your home, but these guys made it work. They did a great job and probably left the house cleaner than it was when they started.”

You have a window of opportunity – act now!

If your windows could look better – and work better – you’re in luck. Lee Company is offering special financing for up to 18 months on the purchase of 10 windows or more.  Learn more about offer and terms.

Lee Company Announces Key Leadership Change

November 20, 2015


Lee Company, a regional leader in facilities solutions and home services, today announced the retirement of Chief Financial Officer Roy Osborne and the welcoming of Rob Ivy as Lee Company’s new financial leader.

(Nashville, Tenn. – November 18, 2015) – Lee Company, a regional leader in facilities solutions and home services, today announced the retirement of Chief Financial Officer Roy Osborne and the welcoming of Rob Ivy as Lee Company’s new financial leader.

Osborne joined Lee Company as CFO 10 years ago and, according to Lee Company President Richard Perko, quickly demonstrated his value on the firm’s Executive Team.

“Roy came to Lee Company during a very difficult season,” Perko said. “From day one, he has been a beacon for our culture of integrity. Roy has led us from our toughest years through the best decade in our company’s history.”

“My 10 years here have really gone by quickly – and I mean that in a good way,” Osborne said.  “At Lee Company, I have been blessed to work with outstanding people, as I have been at every stage of my working career. In that regard, God has been very good to me. Now, I am looking forward to the next season of my life, and to seeing what Lee Company will achieve and become with Rob as its new CFO.”

Ivy comes to Lee Company after serving as CFO of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee since November  2010. A certified public accountant, Ivy holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting from Mississippi State University.

“In finding our next CFO, we knew we had big shoes to fill,” said Perko, “especially in finding someone who fit our culture while also having the key skills and competencies we need for the future. We believe we have definitely found these attributes in Rob Ivy and we are very excited about all that he brings to this great team.”

“It’s so rare in today’s business environment to find an organization like Lee Company – a growing, forward thinking company that values its employees, holds true to its core values and operates with integrity,” said Ivy. “I’m excited about becoming a part of that culture and contributing to Lee Company’s future  success.”

Get your home winter ready!

November 13, 2015

Fall weather in Tennessee brings some of the brightest, crisp days followed by below freezing temperatures when the sun goes down.  It’s important to protect your home during these cold nights.  Here are a few tips on how to get your home ready for sub-freezing nights:


Windows and Doors

Check the weather-stripping around your windows and doors for cracks or damage that can let heat escape from you home.  If you have wooden window frames, check for signs of rot or decay.  Pay attention to areas of your home where you feel a draft, you may need to add some extra caulking or consider getting your windows inspected by a professional.

Protect your plants

Freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on your garden.  Bring plants indoors if at all possible when temperatures plummet.  Cover other outdoor plants with sheets or blankets to hold in heat from the soil to protect your plants from damage.  Be sure to uncover your plants when temperatures rise above freezing in the morning.


Now is the time to inspect your plumbing for leaks and start prepping for those hard winter freezes.  Finding leaks and getting them repaired now can save you a lot of trouble down the road when temperatures can stay below freezing for days.  Be sure to wrap any pipes that are exposed to the elements with extra insulation to help protect against frozen pipes that can burst.


If you’re like most of us, you don’t spend much time thinking about the gutters on your home, but Fall is the time to keep an eye on them.  Leaves and debris fill gutters this time of year and add unwanted weight to your home’s eaves and block proper water flow when it rains.  This blocked water can freeze and add even more weight to your gutters which can lead to roof damage.

Need help with anything you’ve read here?  The Lee Company team of experts are here to help from providing plumbing safety inspections to replacing damaged windows and doors.  Give us a call for anything you need help with around the house.  Our team is ready 24/7 to serve you and your family!

Is it time to add outdoor lighting to your home?

November 05, 2015

The time change may have given us an extra hour of sleep this past weekend, but it also marked the beginning of early sunsets.  For the next few months, most of us will be getting home just in time for daylight hours to come to an end.  Outdoor and landscape lighting can help you get the most out of your home during these extended nighttime hours, while also making your home a safe and inviting place to be for the upcoming holiday season.

Outdoor landscape lighting

Here are four great benefits you can expect from adding some extra light to your home:

Curb appeal

Homes that are well-lit when it’s dark outside stand out in a good way compared to darker homes.  Lights add that extra lived-in, welcoming feel that we all want our homes to have.  Also, you’ve worked hard to get you landscaping just how you like it, outdoor lighting can be designed to highlight what you love most about your home.


With the days getting shorter this time of year, it’s harder to get the most out of your outdoor living spaces.  Adding some extra lighting can help extend the functional hours of your patio or back yard long after the sun goes down.

Home Security

Illuminated homes are less of a target for mischievous individuals.  It is harder for burglars and vandals to get near a well-lit home without being seen.  When installing outdoor and landscape lights, you should consider strategically brightening areas that could be appealing entry points to someone with bad intentions.

Personal and guest safety

Protect your friends, family, and even yourself from tripping and falling by shining some light on potential hazards.  When improperly lit, stairs and dips in the pavement can present a very real danger to visitors who aren’t familiar with your property.  Additional outdoor light can help you avoid unwanted accidents and injuries to you and those you love.

Just like no two families are the same, at Lee Company we recognize that no two homes are the same.  Call the experts at Lee Company to have a skilled technician personalize an outdoor and landscape lighting plan just for you!  Contact us by calling your local office or visit www.LeeCompany.com today!

Paychecks for Patriots

September 29, 2015

American veterans keep America strong. At Lee Company, we’re proud to support our vets – and to hire them! We have many veterans on staff, and have found that their discipline, dedication and determination are a perfect fit with the Lee Company culture. We share the same values, with a rock-solid commitment to excellence, integrity, ethics and compassion.

The connection is clear from day one. At Lee Company, veterans have the opportunity to build a satisfying professional career while continuing to serve their community. For example, one Lee Company team could be changing the Nashville skyline with buildings and structures that define the future. On the other side of town, another Lee Company team might be helping a family turn a house in need of repair into a welcoming home.

Either way – in facilities or homes – the work we do helps shape the world around us.

Opportunities abound

For veterans interested in translating their military experience into administrative excellence, Lee Company offers additional opportunities. For example, our senior vice president of operations, Stuart Price, applies the lessons he learned at the U.S. Naval Academy and the leadership experience he gained as a Navy officer to help Lee Company customers every day.

Veterans like Stuart are accustomed to being part of a greater good, to contributing their talents to strengthen and protect our country. Lee Company is honored to give vets an opportunity to continue serving and helping while, at the same time, building a career that brings joy and rewards to them and their families.

Join us this Thursday

To demonstrate our commitment, Lee Company is sponsoring and participating in Paychecks for Patriots, a hiring event for veterans and their families. If you – or anyone you know! – might be interested, please join us at:
