Exterior Painting-Getting Ready To List Your Home

If you are considering selling your home there are few  home improvement projects that have as great an impact as a new coat of exterior paint on your home.  Modifying or at the very  least,  refreshing the exterior paint on your home completely revitalize the look of your home and makes it more attractive to potential buyers.

It’s the first thing buyers notice when viewing a home and exterior paint also…

  • adds value
  • is attractive to a buyer
  • painting is a relatively inexpensive repair that goes a long way
  • fresh coat of paint goes a long way with buyers
  • paint and flooring are 2 areas that buyers highly evaluate when home shopping

Getting this house ready to list.

 

Fresh paint adds curb-appeal. Even if your home is well-taken care of,  chipped paint and a not so well-taken care of exterior could give potential buyers the illusion that the interior / structure is not well taken care of and scare people away.

That being said, if you’re planning to put your house on the market in the near future, you’ll also want to consider which shades will attract the broadest range of buyers.

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.

Things to Look For

What To Look For

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. Not only does the home owner have a door that’s working properly, we managed to save our clients hundreds of dollars in labor and replacement costs associated with installing a new door.

Do you have a question or need some assistance regarding your home improvements? Give us a call at 905-259-5249 or send us an email at: info@donofalltrades.ca. We’d love to hear from you!

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

Photos courtesy of Don Of All Trades

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.

 01

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.

Photos courtesy of Don Of All Trades

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.

Let me tell you that sample was a HUGE portion of bacon, eggs, and home fries.  Our waitress was fantastic! We arrived at 10am  we were fortunate enough to find a seat as it was definitely a full house with local residences that were excited to try the food as much as we were. SnapdAjax  and the Mayor Steve Parish of Ajax attended as they all celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony. To all the staff and owner of iDaybreak Grill, we thank you for your excellent food and service. Congratulations on your Grand Opening and we will be  definitely be coming back!

An event, grand opening, anniversary or re-opening is an important scope for all small businesses. It’s the perfect opportunity to have some fun and get involved with your community. For many small businesses, these events are a critical part of their long-term success. They also encourage consumers to “Shop Local” and support small businesses in their  communities. 

For locals who live in these communities, these events are an ideal moment to drop in with friends and family members to find out who these new businesses are, where they are located,  what  products or services they have to offer and to show your support as a consumer.
