Winter season interior painting makes great sense!

House painting in the midst of the colder months isn’t  a great deal of an issue.  Actually, professional  painters paint throughout the winter seasons  all the  time. Here are four reasons why you should also:

  1.  You won’t have issues with stickiness, which can occur in summer. A damp or humid situation will back off the dry time for paint. It additionally makes it physically all the more difficult in a hot situation.
  2. Tradesmen  may not be  as occupied and are frequently available  for winter work. Their schedules may be more open to a accommodate appointment bookings months in advance of the spring and summer seasons.
  3. There is a good possibility that you may be able to negotiate a better price for the project to be completed. Amid the off-season a Tradesman may bring down their costs in order to get your work.
  4. Painting now will maximize the value of your home, more so if you are  considering the thought of putting it on the market for sale in the spring.

One final point, and for some people this is a BIG one,   painting your home in winter leaves the hotter months free. You’ll have the capacity to engage, have BBQ’s and completely utilize all aspects of your home in summer!

How To Fix A Sagging Door In 3 Simple Steps

Solutions To Continuous Door Hinge Sagging

I recently got called to do an estimate on replacing a front door for a client. When I asked why they wanted to replace the door they told me the door wasn’t closing properly and the lock was broken. The door looked to be in good condition and I recommended that we could replace the door locks with new hardware. When I investigated as to why the door wasn’t closing properly I found that the top hinge of the door had loose screws and that there were stripped holes as well. So the home owner’s problem wasn’t that the door needed replacement but that it was suffering from continuous door hinge sagging.

Do you have a wood screw hole for a hinge that is loose?

Here is the best suggestion on how to go about doing this type of repair.

Below I have included a  step by step process including photos  on how to fix this problem.

Step 1

Remove loose screws and drill out the stripped out holes with a drill bit the same size as the dowel that you’re going to insert into the new openings that we have created.

By following these simple steps we managed to fix the sagging hinge. If done properly this fix will last for the life time of the door.

Bathroom Floor and Shower Remodel

 

pic monkey bathroom

 Our Complimentary In Home Consultation

  • Client addressed issues of water leaking from the shower into to the kitchen ceiling and causing damage to all the drywall
  • Client was concerned as  to why all of the ceramic floor tiles were breaking in the bathroom.

Initial Review Upon Inspection

picmonkey 2  picmonkey 3

Upon my inspection I found that these issues were  caused by an improperly built shower base. The previous contractor had laid the ceramic for the shower floor directly on top of the subfloor without any water proofing membrane or concrete. They also used 12-inch tiles for the floor and it’s almost impossible to create a slope for the water to go to the waste drain using that size tile.

The end result was that the tile and grout failed, causing the plywood to absorb the water like a sponge. When it got to a point where the subfloor couldn’t take in any more water it started to leak onto the kitchen ceiling. Not only did it damage the ceiling it also spread from the subfloor in the shower to the subfloor in the bathroom causing the tile to crack and the toilet to move because the wood completely was rotted.

Solution To Correcting This Problem

The original bathroom flooring  was removed. New plywood wood was installed, screening was applied as well as a scratch coat. Our client decided on a  ceramic for their floor tile.  A new toilet and baseboard were also added to this bathroom.

Backer board with a built-in rubber membrane on the outer layer was installed in the shower. All joints were sealed with fiberglass mesh tape. A thin set mortar was applied to fill in all the joints in order to maintain a good tight water seal.

The original shower pan  was removed. This was replaced by installing new 1 inch plywood on top of the sub floor.  A layer of concrete was added to from  a new base foundation.  Once the concrete had cured, a rubber membrane was installed on top of the concrete. This stage of the floor was completed by adding a final top coat  of concrete.

Our client’s choice of tile was a  ceramic  that was installed on the walls in a subway tile pattern to give it a unique and professional look. Once the tiling process was completed on all shower walls and floor, grout was applied to the tiles. The original fixtures and glass shower door were re installed.

As a professional in the home improvement business, I am extremely fortunate to be able to work with incredible clients. This project involved the  remodeling of their existing bathroom that unfortunately had suffered severe water damage.   Our team at Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services was able to  complete this project on time and within the client’s budget! Did we mention our client was extremely happy?  

 

Tip:  Home owners considering hiring a professional to complete a bathroom remodel should take into account that this project could take up to a week or more to complete depending on the scope of the work. Plan accordingly and communicate with your contractor on what the entire bathroom remodel process will entail and be prepared for surprises your contractor may find along the way  i.e.: water damage, faulty wiring, mold etc.  You may have to temporarily use the second bathroom in your home during the remodeling process. So please be patient and work together with your contractor.

Like so many  home owners out there, there comes point in  when you may be considering ways to add spark  and life back in your home. Remodeling can help bring out the much-needed changes to your current living conditions. Putting your home on the market, selling and moving somewhere new may be one solution but why bother with all of the hassle? Adding just a few things to your home can help give it life  and make it feel new again. Keep in mind something very important  before you start your home remodel –Have Every Thing On Hand First.  

 

Large  items such as the vanity tops  and special order tiles can take several weeks to arrive, so be patient. Before you take a sledge-hammer to your bathroom, make sure everything you’re going to need — including the vanity, plumbing fixtures, any new lighting, the tub and the tile is on hand. You might get frustrated waiting around for products, but it’s better than tearing up your fixtures and having an unusable bathroom until they arrive. Plus, when your new products are on hand, you’ll know if you need to do extra work, such as moving the plumbing lines for the sink location or running new cable for your lights, before you rip up and then patch the walls.

 

Below is an example on one of Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services recent corner shower tiling upgrades and a description of the work that was done. Enjoy!

 

So here’s what we did:

 

– Installation of ceramic tile.

– Partial installation of Backer Board.

– Dry Pack for the floor which consisted of a  mixture of sand and Portland cement.

–  Configuring sloping of the shower floor to ensure proper drainage.

– Installed 8×10 ceramic tile on all walls.

– Glass inlay installation.

– 12×12 sheet of 1 inch tile for the shower floor.

– Grouted tiles with sanded grout with polymer to give it strength and prevention of mold & mildew.

– Vinyl tile edging installed to the shower opening to it a clean and finished look.

Tips:

If your thinking about building a  shower, consider the design. Odd shaped designs take longer to tile due to the fact there are more measurements involved in order to get the tile to fit correctly. Plan accordingly in order to fit this into your project time line  completion.

Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services was hired to do a complete double bathroom renovation. We gave our clients the best price possible, worked with them every step of the way from the beginning to the end.  I have included some before and after photos  stages of this particular project. Enjoy!

So Here’s What We Did:

– removal of existing bathtubs and replaced with deeper modern  acrylic tubs

– installed  new backer  board for both showers

–  installed ceramic tile of 2 different colors as well as a mosaic inlay that consisted of a combination of glass and marble.

– flooring was to be completely replaced in one bathroom with new ceramic tile and grout while the other required some tile to be replaced

– client chose to have melamine countertops installed on original vanities

– installation of new sinks, new fixtures for bathtubs and  faucets

– oval shower curtain installed

I personally had a wonderful experience with our clients. I learned a lot about them and shared some wonderful tricks of the trade and look forward to working with them again in the future. I am very pleased at the results and so are our clients.

Tip: In this project, our clients saved money by deciding to reuse and repainting their existing vanities along with deciding on painting the bathrooms themselves.

This holiday was renamed in 1982.

Home Maintenance Tips for: Cleaning Bathroom Exhaust Fans

 

Have you ever turned on your bathroom exhaust fan to hear it suddenly make a strange squeaking sound or maybe even stop working completely? Chances are the motor to your unit  may just need a simple cleaning.  These units should be put on a maintenance cleaning schedule about every three-month as they do get quite dirty and dusty inside. Regular cleaning extends the life of the motor inside the unit and keeps it working properly.

Exhaust fans unit play an important role in all bathrooms as they:

1- keep your walls dampness to a minimum to prevent damage to the drywall and to circulate the air

2- prevents and keeps mold growth to a minimum since bathrooms are usually a higher moisture and humidity content than any other room in the home especially after hot baths and showers

3- provide an escape route usually for strong offensive odours

Below are simple cleaning instructions to assist you if you are planning on doing it yourself!

Depending on how long it’s been since the last time you cleaned your bathroom exhaust fan, now is the time to pull out the vacuum cleaner before removing the cover. You will save yourself from a great deal of dust falling on to your bathroom floor if you vacuum the bulk of the dust off before you remove the cover.

Start by choosing the brush attachment and begin by gently removing the accumulation of cobwebs and dust that has collected substantially over time.

If your plan is  just doing an ‘in between clean’ of your  fan cover once every couple of months, you can stop here and not worry about doing a detailed clean of the cover and fan.

Once you have vacuumed up as many dust bunnies as you could manage, make sure someone who knows what they are doing has turned the bathroom power off at the mains, then put on some gloves, climb carefully up your ladder and pull off the fan cover. Most will come off fairly easily, but some may need screws removed with a screwdriver.

Choose a  quality cloth to ensure you don’t just spread the grime and wipe off as much surface dust as you can, taking care not to damage or pull on the fan.

Next, take the fan cover, spray with an all-purpose cleaner and give it a once over with a small scrubbing-brush. If the ingrained dirt doesn’t seem to be releasing after this, give the cover a soak for a few minutes in some warm water to loosen the dirt and try again.

Once everything is clean and dry, put it all back together and enjoy knowing that your  bathroom exhaust is now working at peak efficiency and will continue to operate for years to come!

Customer Service-Powerful Tool

imagesJTWNU7X7

The majority of the public work hard and long hours in this country. The weekends come and go. For some of us the weekends are the days of catching up and getting errands done at home. There’s just never seems to be enough time to get things done and to really enjoy and relax on the weekends. It’s no wonder some of us are tired and seem miserable. For some companies in retail for example, weekends are the 2 days they rely on for the best sales and profits. When I go into a store to shop, I’m not thinking about the store’s sales increases. First thing on my mind as a customer is to get in and get out. I don’t have the patience for long lineups and poor customer service. I know once I’m done I have to load and unload my vehicle once I get home and get everything put away. Been there. Done that. One more thing off the list.

New outlets of advertising a businesses is always changing. Avenues like social media, internet and you tube for example are just a few tools to name to get your brand out there to the world. Bottom line though, Customer Service will always remain the same and should be considered a #1 priority on your list in any business. How you practice Customer Service skills can create a positive or negative impact on your business. Below are a few tips and ideas on how to improve your customer service skills to get the best results in your business.

Always Greet Your Customers

So at 8am in the morning, your customers are the first person they see to the start of their day. You as an employee or store owner could just make that customer’s day so much better and take some of the anxiety away by just simply greeting your customers. Nothing makes someone feel better than actually being noticed with a pleasant “Good Morning!” or “How are you today?”  I’ve experienced customers getting actually “thrown off guard” and looking behind them thinking you’re talking to someone else, when in fact you’re talking to them! It makes a person feel comfortable and important. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that your organization was a truly great experience for them and will come back over and over again.

 

Treat Your Customers With Respect

Always remember to treat your customers with respect. These are the people who pay you, your employees and the bills! Treat them like they are your guests. Provide great customer service. Make them feel that they can come to you if they need any assistance, have any questions or concerns about a product or service. There is never such a thing as a bad question. If you don’t have an answer for them, let them know that you will find someone who can! Go above and beyond.

Talk and Chat With Your Customers

Over the years I’ve made it a mission to get to know our customers by name. Building a relationship with our customers is one of my top priorities. You’d be amazed how much a customer is willing to tell you about themselves. Hey, they are human beings too just like everyone else. Your customers will come back to you time and time again and refer your business to others because that special relationship and pleasant experience. Wouldn’t you want to be somewhere where everyone knows your name? Doing a simple gesture as chatting with a customer can be a very powerful tool. It can let an owner know about how well their businesses is doing and or any improvements and suggestions that can be made to improve it.

Interact With Customers In A Related Way

Again interacting with your customer can give an owner important information about their organization. Your customers are the best critics of your business. Every day in the land of running a  business presents its own and unique challenges. Invite positive or negative feedback. Putting up a “suggestion” box in an area of your business is a great way to get your customers involved. This can give them a sense of involvement in your organization. Sure you may find some negative feedback but use this as an avenue on how you can improve your business. This is what’s going to make your business stand out from the competition. Act on them in a timely fashion. Deal with complaints in a quick and professional manner. There’s always going to be an unhappy customer in any organization but it’s how you deal with them and their issues that can make the difference of getting that customer’s issues resolved with a positive conclusion at the end of the day. Learn how to listen to your customers concerns or bad experience. Then act on them. It’s all about doing the “right thing.”

Turn Up To Work With A Positive Attitude

Customers pick on your attitude. Leave your personal issues at home. We all have bad days at work but no one will notice it more than your customers. If you are a business owner, learn to treat your employees with respect and acknowledge their accomplishments. Letting them know what a great job they are doing will uplift their spirits and make them feel appreciated and will work harder for you. When your staff are happy, they’ll come to work with a positive attitude and the customers will see this. Issues at work should be dealt in a professional matter in the appropriate place like your supervisor’s office or Human Resources Department.  There’s nothing worse than hearing staff complain about issues while your customers are shopping or using your services. It makes it a negative impact on the business and bad experience for the customer. People don’t want to be around miserable people and it’s not professional.

Understand Your Customers Needs

Every customer is unique and important. If you are in the grocery retail chain business, you may have a client that has a peanut  allergy and requires peanut free products that you don’t carry but the competition does. What would you do? Here’s a great example of understanding your customers needs. If it’s possible, perhaps you could possibly find out where these particular products are sold and see if you could  find a supplier that can carry them in your store. This suites your customers needs and will ensure they will be coming to your location for this particular product. Simple little solutions like this can make a customer feel important and give them reassurance knowing that you are there for “them.”

Discover The Impact You Have Around Customers

I remember a situation where I had a regular customer come in one morning. He came in to buy a particular bread that we baked every morning for his wife who was at home extremely sick. He was anxious to get home. I couldn’t give him the bread as it was still baking and would require some time to cool down before I could place them in plastic bags along with the label. Really there was nothing I could do. He was so persistent and getting upset. Because I have such strong customer service skills, I  asked him if he lived very far. He was surprised I asked this question. He replied about 5 minutes away. I offered a solution. I made a deal with him. Once the bread was ready I would personally purchase the bread come to the house on my break and deliver it to him and his wife. He was shocked that I would do something like this. He thanked me so much and said he would come back later. 2 weeks later he came back to the store with his wife and other family members. He introduced me to his wife and wanted to personally thank me for the nice gesture I offered. It was a wonderful feeling and whenever they came in to shop they always came to see me or request for me to help them with any assistance. Sadly to say, his wife passed away. To this day I will always remember the opportunity of meeting this wonderful man and his wife. So as the title says: Discover The Impact You Have Around Customers. In this case I feel these customers had more of an impact on me that day then the other way  around.

Excite Your Customers About Your Products

It’s always exciting when a business  has a new product or service that a customer can benefit from. Don’t keep it a secret. Let everyone know about it. Do research and education your staff on it so that they all have a better understanding. This way they can communicate back to the customer. Whenever we have a special offer, I can’t wait to tell the world about it. You’re customers pick up on that excitement and interest and will want to know more about it and tell their friends and family about it. Great deals or campaigns can be advertised via so many avenues today. Social Media, Campaigns, Emails, Flyers , Newspapers or Store Front Signs are some great ways to advertise. Customers can’t wait to tell others about a New Product they benefited from!
