Safely Reach Your McHenry New Homes

Gone are the days where you can wake up in your McHenry new homes to the sound of birds chirping and the sun shining. Fall is here and with it comes the time of year when we start to lose some (or a lot) of daylight. Driving to and from work, school, football practice and dance recitals become more and more difficult as we experience reduced visibility beginning at dusk.

Because we care about our friends, families, employees and homeowners, we want to encourage you to take special precautions when driving while it’s dark. Below are some tips that you should keep in mind to safely maneuver night driving:

  • Reduce speeds after dark: We all have places to be, but it’s more important to arrive safely at your destination than to get there early.
  • Use headlights: This is important not only at night, but at dawn as well.
  • Keep windshields and windows clean: You should do this at all times—even in the daytime!
  • Make sure headlights and wipers are in good working order: It’s easier to see when you have both headlights in good working order. The same applies to your windshield wipers.
  • Have regular eye exams and consider stronger prescription lenses to see at night: Unfortunately, at some time or another, we all need help seeing as we age; and it’s an important part of driving safely.

We want to keep you as safe as possible so that you can make it easily to where you need to go including our communities of McHenry, Poplar Grove, Williams Bay and Richmond new homes at any time of the day.

And, don’t forget that time is running out to take advantage of our buyer incentives. We’re offering 10 percent off the base price of any new home at Liberty Trails, The Trails of Pheasant Ridge, The Trails of Dawson Creek and Bailey Estates until the end of the year.
