Ok, I've heard of road rash before, but is this what it is?   This road is very sad that it got a boo-boo on it's forehead.  You can see it on it's face.       You can see it right?  The two dark spots for eyes, the small dark spot in the middle for a nose, and the sad line at the bottom for a fr...
CHIMNEY CORNER BOARD REPAIR IN WAKE FOREST, NC   We recently performed some closing punchlist work for a new customer through a referral from a real estate agent in Wake Forest, NC.  We did a good job, and the customer asked us to come back to repair all of his rotted trim. This house was foreclo...
...Pollen Season!  The time of year here in NC, where everything turns yellow until it rains!   What do you see when you look at this picture?  A beautiful blue sky?  Me too, and that's why I took the photo.  But I also see some of the most annoying trees God ever made:  pine trees!  As if pine c...
They're all around!  Signs of Spring that is.  Birds are chirping & frogs are singing.  I even heard the Spring Peepers out in the wet woods behind my back yard just late last week.  Heck, Spring is even in their name!     And of course flowers are blooming, like these little wild violets in one ...
If you think all fasteners are the same, you're wrong.  Just ask Jay Markanich.   For instance, staples work great for things like carpet pad.  But not for fascia!  If you see a board with these sticking out of it, your house ain't built right!   Staples just aren't made to hold up pieces of wood...
    I took this picture last year at a crossroads not far from my home.  This is Duke's Lake, east of Rolesville, NC.   In the middle of my busy day, I just had to stop and admire the beauty of the lake.  The water was like glass, offered a perfect reflection right up to the dam, and I hope it g...
I hope it is!  It's been warm here in Wake Forest, NC recently, and there are signs all around! The trees all have their blooms starting, and I'm most thankful that the large American Elm in our backyard is blooming.  It had a rough year last year with the drought conditions, the extreme heat, an...
You may not realize it, but your house has shoes!  Ok, really they're boots, and maybe they're not for walking.  But your house has one, or two, or three, or more! You say you don't know what a roof boot is?  What?  How'd you get on my jobsite?  Did I hire you?  You're got to maintain roof boots,...
Ok, here you are.  Wondering how to know if that funky looking piece of wood is really rotted.  How to know if the large crack in the trim is really an indication of a repair.  So how do you know? One way is to get an expert to tell you.  There are way too many contractors out there that give FRE...
Such a nice, friendly range.
