Painting Cabinetry

Have you dreamed of a new kitchen and wanted to update cabinetry but don’t have the budget for brand new cabinets? Painting your existing cabinetry is always an option to consider. Here is a step by step guide to painting cabinetry. Wood, wood-laminate, and metal cabinets usually can be repainted without difficulty. Plastic laminate cabinets resist overpainting — those that can be refinished often require special paints and techniques, and results can vary.

Fireplace Maintenance

The warm glow of a fireplace is one of nature's simple gifts. To keep things simple and safe, clean the fireplace regularly and know that it is well built. It's also a good idea to have a professional initially inspect the fireplace and chimney.

When the chimney is cleaned by a technician he will lay down a drop cloth, place lights, plug in a vacuum system, and have an array of tools and brushes at hand. But before the chimney is cleaned, key areas of the chimney are first checked.

Hot Water Heater Maintenance

Hot water heaters work hard for you, providing warm baths, clean clothes, and sparkling pots and pans.

So show your water heater some love by following a routine maintenance schedule that will keep it running for its 15-year expected lifetime, and perhaps beyond.

Here’s what you need to do:

Adjust the thermostat to 120 degrees. You’ll save up to 5% in energy costs for every 10 degrees you lower the temperature, plus you’ll reduce the risk of scalding.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

Summer time is on its way here in Atlanta and the only thing that can truly make this heat bearable is your air conditioning unit. This is one of those things most homeowners don’t give a thought to until there is a problem, and then it’s a big problem Spend a little bit of time on preventative maintenance and you may save yourself some money and heartache in the heat of the summer.

 

Bath Remodeling

throom renovations don’t have to be big, messy, expensive and painful. If you have a standard bathroom that has seen better days, a renovation can be easily within your reach. The key to a smooth bath remodel is planning.  When a wise person said “the devil is in the details” one wonders if they were talking about home renovation!
