How Much is that Dog in the Window?

Hoschton: Sometimes that's all the creativity that I have....puppies.













Once again we were referred by one of our real estate pro's to help bring this home up to speed on a few things. 













We did a lot of touch painting and caulking inside but the primary focus was replacing these bad windows. 














Unfortunately we had to remove and replace all the siding with new JamesHardie fiber cement lap siding. 













We do a good bit of siding work, this was no big deal for us. 
















We're thankful grateful that our work gives others comfort in referring us.

Who's Behind the Door??

Glad to have been hired for this job. The homeowner wanted access to the garage without having to go outside.












We cut a hole in the wall and installed a new door!!! 

And we repaired/secured the backyard tree house. Scroll down and take  a look.

As always we're glad we can help. 
Right:
BEFORE - 
Here we are in Milton replacing a lot of siding with a fiber cement siding. You'll also see the newly installed white fascia boards (they're made out of PVC - a real smart move since PVC will not rot).









We're replaced in all nine windows. Three in the garage, two dormer windows, plus four more.












Right:
After removing the old siding and install a weather/moisture barrier, installed window flashing, and then installed the windows.

Up goes the fiber cement siding...













Right:
We also removed all the siding and trim from the dormers, and installed windows in each dormer.

Notice the white trim (fascia)? That's made of the PVC product.

We were referred by Home Depot's RedBeacon referral program to help this couple build a frame & install their awesome Eze-Breeze porch enclosure (find out more about their products at: http://pgtezebreeze.com/). 

This really is a pretty cool product. It breathes out but doesn't let wind nor rain in. These particular windows slide left to right, other slide up & down.

We're at The Columns in Milton doing  few post-home inspection repairs as this home is soon to close.

Yes, we provide a little help for a little while for a of things. 

Sliding Door Nightmare

Home Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy Man CummingThis glass door on the left seemed easy to change until we removed it and discovered the subfloor was about to throw in the towel. One simple door required us to correct the the flooring with new beams AND we also had to build new headers (above the sliding door) because it too wasn't properly positioned. We had to build a temporary wall to ensure the roof wouldn't collapse while we replaced the original header.



Give us a call, we're happy to help.

Window Swap

Home Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManWe replaced this window from the opposite side of the home & to install a new exterior door. 

If you look closely you'll see that the original window was too up-close & personal to the door. We re-worked the window framing to create a little space between the two that ultimately gives it a nicer appearance. 

Knocking on the Front Door

Home Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManHome Improvements - Home Repairs - Handy ManThere's nothing like a red front door that really makes things Americana (in our humble opinion). It's a great choice, it's a high sitting corner home that tastefully says,"look at me." 

Here we are doing our thing, among many other things, to this home. This door was purchased from Lowe's and came with two side lights. Really nice.

We extended out 4' and went 9' wide. We used the existing window and special ordered 4 additional windows & built a gable roof to make it look as though it was the original build, then finished it up James Hardie fiber cement siding. 

How's a look? We think it looks awesome!

Have you ever seen drywall installed on top of existing drywall? 

Here it is - thin 1/4 inch drywall helped reduce cost for the homeowner. Like all drywall installations it's a "process" - still have to apply compound at least twice and sand, then prime & paint.

We use an airless spray gun - the blur in the background is a thin sheet of plastic as cover to protect from over spraying. 

What else did we accomplish? We replaced the water heater & installed a compression tank, resealed & repaired the window trim. 

Give us a call, we're good people providing quality work.

We like it when our clients talk to their neighbors while we're working. We understand it's tough sometimes to let strangers into your home (one of the reasons for this blog and our website presentation). 

We were so delighted to help install new window blinds for a great neighbor. That's right, a little help for a little while for a lot of things.

She called and had her self a good 'honey do list' - from installing a toilet with a bad flange, to installing several closet doors, smoke detectors, edging her yard, fixing her garage door, hanging mirrors and pictures, to permanently installing a coat hanger for her grand daughter. We'd be more than happy to work for this home  owner again.
