Have a problem with a hole in the drywall of your residence?
The drywall in these two pictures are pushed inwards and the bonding skin is broken on the back surface. The drywall could be cut into any shape. If the damaged is large cut out the drywall to reach from stud to stud which is normally on sixteen inch centres. For small holes use a stick as a back support. Next the joint is tapped and drywall is applied until the final contour is complete.
In the near future the fin...ished result will be photographed. Our work is guaranteed.

After the toilet is placed and bolted down it is time to seal the toilet.
Use the proper bathroom silicon which is paintable. For the toilet a clear silicon would not look as good as white when dried.
Trim in the bathroom have gaps at the top away from the drywall or at the floor between the floor and the trim.
The tub or shower should be sealed the same way.
...
Importance of maintaining a silicon seal.
Silicon seals stop infiltration of water which could cause wood rot or steel oxidation.

Ever had a project that is outside of your comfort zone! Do not know how to complete a project which is started but not completed by others. You have taken over and need to complete as quickly as possible. Tried to complete the project but the outcome is not what you expected.
Drywall missing may be one of these techniques which you may not have developed. Attached is the as found picture then completed picture.
The first step is to sand down the rough edges.
Next drywall ...mud is applied to encase the drywall crevices.
Thin layers of mud are added and sanded between passes and the room is kept warm to have faster drying times. Normally three passes are done.
In the event of inside, outside corners or joints drywall tape is used.

There are many people out there who think picking up supplies is easy and time is free for picking up the supplies and time starts only at your place of residence. For those people I guess they pick up all their supplies for their work and then go to work. Sorry but it took me years to learn what products are better than others and what to get without wasting time.

Ever had issues with one of your kitchen main components or have you noticed while cooking the aroma is traveling throughout the house.

First check to see if the vent outside damper is opening when you turn on your fan and manually open the damper to ensure it is not stuck or do you burn scented candles to mask the cooking smells.

It may be cost effective to have the old one replaced with a new one or have the damper replaced could be the issue. With good new it may be alright.

Next the ducting and voids would be sealed of gaps and holes where the air would escape prior to exiting your residence.

Finally the exhaust fan would be checked to see if sucks the air out of the residence and if not is may be time for a replacement. In this case the exhaust fan was replaced after the power was turned off then verified with a meter.

Contact Daniel at 587-597-4228 if you have a problem which needs to be addressed which may be like this or another household issue.

Finishing Mudding were someone stopped the project and added a vent hole to existing ducting

As shown above is the first drywall mud coat was applied and tonight the last coat was applied.

This project was taken on to bring this bathroom to a point where the owners can finish painting and final sanding by themselves. Nicks in the wall were filled with drywall compound then sanded smooth to the existing painted drywall.

The owners are saving money by doing part of the project themselves so tonight my part is finished.

If you have a task which needs to be completed contact Daniel at 587-597-4228.

Cleaned up the clay pile and finished putting the stairs together by the end of the day. It is kind of hard to imagine sweating outside at two degrees. Well moving a pile of clay with a shovel took some doing for sure. If you have a outdoor project that needs to get done contact Daniel at 587-597-4228.
Removal of clay for stair base, adjusted the crushed stone to lay the patio blocks. 

Cut the patio blocks as required, installed the treads and added a railing on one side then anchored the stairs down.





Started a new project where the steps were written and unsafe to walk on. The old steps were hauled to the ECO Center. The ground was dug up and a base was laid for patio blocks. 3/4" Rock was added as a base over the clay for a minimum of one and a half inches then a minimum of two inches of half inch crush rock overtop. This preparation work is now completed. Next the same step pattern will be installed.
Keep moving on the steps. Added the blocks today and moving on the steps. All is progressing and should be completed today. Contact Daniel at 587-597-4228 if you have a project which needs to get completed.
