Subway Kitchen Backsplash Install-Don Of All Trades

There’s nothing more exciting than adding  upgrades to your home like this Subway Pattern Kitchen Backsplash install our team at Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services recently completed for our client.  These home owners picked their own choice of colour and style of tile. I have to say, the end result is SPECTACULAR!

Up for a DIY Mosaic Tile challenge? Here’s some important steps to remember BEFORE you start the installation process.

Important Information To Remember

  • Make sure the surface is level and clean prior to installation.
  • If applying mosaic tile on gypsum, it is important to apply a coat of primer prior to beginning your mosaic wall tile installation.
  • Always check all the purchased boxes of tiles before starting. I have been in situations where clients thought what they purchased was all the same tile when in fact what they brought home was 3 different types of tile.  This step saves everyone involved  a lot of time and aggravation.
  • Inspect each tile prior to installation.
  • When installing tiles, mix and match tiles from different cartons for a natural look.
  • If you are installing mosaic wall tiles in a shower, it is necessary to install a waterproof membrane.
  • Install any trim or profile strips before installing the mosaic wall tile.
  • Modified thin-sets are generally appropriate for mosaic wall tile installations. Pre-mixed thin-sets are not appropriate for bathroom installations, and should not be used for mosaics featuring glass wall tiles.
  • Follow all manufacturer’s instructions when applying modified thin-set and grout.

Women’s Helping Hands Charity High Tea Event-Don Of All Trades

Throughout the year, Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services held a number of charitable events in Durham Region benefiting Herizon House, a not-for-profit, charitable organization that provides a place of safety where women and children will feel accepted, supported and empowered as they move towards living their lives free of violence in Durham Region.

We were delighted to invite our friends, family members and women in businesses to our Women’s Helping Hands Charity High Tea Event held on November 14 hosted by Women's Helping Hands Lunch-Don of All Trades  Yolanda D’Orazio, Volunteer Coordinator of the Don Of All Trades Helping Hands Building Tree’s of Hope Program. This was a charming and super delicious way to spend an afternoon and help the community.  Our Goal was to  drop off 30 donated items to ensure every women and child received  something special this Christmas from the community.

We started things off with a variety of dainty finger sandwiches. Of course, high tea wouldn’t be complete without the traditional scones with clotted cream and preserves!

Sweets

An assortment of mini butter tarts, mini cupcakes, cakes and cookies including the classic Dutch Butter Cookies and so much  more were beautifully displayed on our tables!

There was  no charge for this event but we asked  each guest to donate gifts for the women and children who are staying in the shelter and help  make this Christmas a little better for them.
