Auto Tip of the Week:   
Ugh-those dang door dings! It never fails even when you park "miles" away from the entrance of the store, someone parks right next to you and leaves you with a parting gift. So do you fix it or let it go?
If you saw it happen, have photos (damage, proximity of cars, car tag etc.), can get the other drivers car insurance information,- it will make getting the dent repaired worth it.  If it is deep & you don't get it repaired, your car is susceptible to corrosion and rust. 
For all your 
Car Care Needs!

Plumbing Tip of the Week:
Predicting when your water heater is going to tap out isn't easy, but there are a couple signs you that can alert you.
Finally check your water heater frequently for unexpected dripping or moisture and take action at the earliest of any of these signs.

For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team, 

Scott & Laura Thompson,   owners of 
Rooter Man Savannah! 
Rooter Man is always to the rescue when a plumbing problem comes up!! 
Give them a call!! 

Mattress Tip of the Week:

1/3 of your life is spent in bed, make every second the best it can possibly be. Life is too short for bad mattresses. If you're getting better sleep away from home, it might be time to change your mattress. Waking up to pain on your tried and true mattress, consider breaking up with it permanently. While warranties and experts say the regular mattress is good for 10 years, listen to your body.

  Tip of the Week by Insurance Expert! 
Looking for discount on Home Insurance?
Sometimes it is as easy as asking your agent if you qualify for any discounts!  While a good price may help your decision, keep in mind that a dependable insurance company, quality customer service and having the appropriate coverage in place can be very important should you ever need to file a claim.
