Call today to discuss your project Follow these easy fall fixes for a happier, healthier home. 1. Smelly home Stale air got you down? Add a few drops of vanilla extract or essential oil onto your furnace filter. Don’t overdo it; add just enough to get a fresh spring scent circulating – even in the middle of January. 2. Drippy faucet Drip. Drip. Drip. Most of the time a worn washer is to blame. To change the washer, find out what type of faucet you have and then locate and replace. Replacing other worn parts may come into the mix, and if you feel confident enough to DIY, a few tips may help: Remember to shut off the water supply and turn the faucet on to get rid of excess aqua in the line. Place a towel or cover over the sink drain to avoid losing parts, and always take parts being replaced with you to the hardware store to match with new parts. If you’re using a wrench to unscrew parts, wrap it with painter’s tape so you don’t scratch the faucet’s finish. 3. Running toilet Has your commode been going on a marathon? Typically, the culprit is the flapper. First, make sure your chain isn’t too long or too short. Next, add a few drops of food coloring to the water in the tank. If, after five minutes, you notice a color change in the bowl water, your flapper needs upgrading. Stop the water, drain the tank, and take the old flapper to the hardware store to make sure your new flapper matches the old – minus the not working part. 4. Creaky hardwood flooring Keep quiet when venturing for that three a.m. glass of water by sweeping talcum powder into floorboard joints so they don’t rub together. If you’re still experiencing the squeak, you’ll want to ensure that your floorboards are securely fastened to the subfloor. If not, which is likely the case, you can fix it yourself in less than a day. Plenty of online tutorials can guide you through this process. 5. Holes in the wall Haphazardly placed nails and other wall décor holders tend to leave nasty marks on your wall’s surface. Patching plaster and a putty knife effectively seal most holes, while a plaster and primer combo works better for areas that you’re planning on painting over. 6. Streaky windows This one is easy: wash your windows on a cloudy day to avoid sun streaks. Using newspaper to wipe works, but beware with vinyl windows; the print may smear on white surfaces. 7. Moldy shower grout Wipe down the surface with a wet cloth, then, using a paste of baking soda and water, scrub thoroughly with an old toothbrush or shower brush. After waiting a day, apply a sealer to ensure your furious scrubbing doesn’t go to waste. 8. Water stains on wood surfaces Time will tell you which method to use when attempting to rid wood surfaces of nasty water rings. If the stain is a few days old, try ironing it out. Place a cotton towel onto the ring, put the iron on low and briefly press down. If that doesn’t work, try dabbing mayonnaise or petroleum jelly (really) onto a cloth and applying to the affected area. As a last resort, grab the toothpaste. It has to be white, and non-gel, but the toothpaste, when worked onto a stained surface, can effectively lighten or remove stained surfaces. Keep in mind, however, that toothpaste can wear surfaces if used too liberally.
Hired this company in December 2020 to mount a 65” TV. The first warning sign should have been the first time the TV fell from the wall while the tech was still present because it was mounted incorrectly. The tech bought wall anchors and finished the job. Seven months later, the TV fell from the wall again. The reason? The tech didn’t mount the TV to any of the studs in the wall and eventually the weight of the TV caused the bolts to give way leaving gaping holes in my wall. I was able to hire a different company the next day to remount the TV and they pointed out the reasons the TV fell—primarily, shoddy workmanship. When I contacted the company for a refund, they denied that it was their fault and refused to reimburse me. But that’s not the only issue I had with this same company. In January 2021 I contacted them for drywall patching and repainting. The quality of work was so amateurish, it looks like a child did it. The owner of the company, Sandy Whittington, came to inspect the work and promised to send someone else to fix the mess. That was the last time I heard from Sandy. However, one of the painters continues to contact me because he was never paid. In both cases, this company failed to stand by the quality of their work and services. I had no choice but to hire someone else because the company informed me the earliest they could send someone over was a week later. In the meantime I was going to have to see the TV dangling dangerously from the wall, anchored by one remaining screw that clung tenaciously to the cracked drywall. Failure on their part to own up to their crappy services has made it clear that the only remedy to this problem is to sue them in court. Use this company at your own risk!
Hired SRO, to change out faucets in kitchen and bath, change out shower heads. Install (2) new ceiling fans and switches and replace old ceiling fans. Bill and Pete did an outstanding job. They arrived on time, introduced themselves, curtesy and clean. The crew kept me informed as they began and ended each project. 5-Star company and recommend and will call them again.
