How Much is that Dog in the Window?

Posted on March 13, 2018 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (339)
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.

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.

The last of the window replacements - no new siding on this side, just new windows. 

Easy like EZE BREEZE

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.

Sliding Door Nightmare

Posted on December 6, 2014 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)
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

Posted on December 6, 2014 at 12:05 PM Comments comments (0)
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

Posted on December 6, 2014 at 11:34 AM Comments comments (7)
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.
