Tip of the Week
Caulking: Caulking can be a messy job that results in what looks like a 3 year old played arts and crafts with your house. Not to worry, here are a few tips to help you out. Around glass or a finished surface, use painters tape on either side of the joint being caulked. This will save you time on clean up and it's ok if the process gets a little messy, if caulk gets on the tape you can peel it right up. For the "professional" look, wet your finger and run it down the bead to smooth it out and remove the excess, this will also work if you want to use a putty knife. Just wet the knife and run it down the bead. Using a putty knife to tool the caulk or window glazing may take some practice. Part of the blade will need to follow a flat surace to keep things looking good, every movement made or bump the knife hits will show up in the caulk. Also be careful not to remove to much caulk or it will be ineffective. Follow the manufacturers recommendations for proper adhesion and sealing. Happy caulking.
I am ready to start offering granite on the site. I have pics of the split stone pieces and will also offer pavers/floor tiles. The granite will start at $7 per linear foot and if you need it installed I can give you an estimate on that. Take a look at the pictures, this is a really great product, very unique, and all recycled! You an have high end without adding to any landfills and you can have custom at an affordable price. I have samples if you want to see them and will be getting a full sample board soon.
In the near future we will be offering granite pavers, floor tiles, and split face tiles in a variety of colors and shapes for very good prices. We're talking like $7 per square foot for the material (plus install if you like). This is all recycled material, so when you buy, you're keeping this from the landfill! Really this is a win win for everyone and a responsible application of a high end product for affordable prices! Stay tunes and look for granite in the Re-Store.
