Contractor vs. Handyman.

It sounds like a mammoth clash at The Sportatorium between two wrestling combatants, doesn’t it?  What IS the difference between handyman services and that of a contractor?  There are some projects a handyman may not be licensed to do.  Rough in or newly installed plumbing or electrical work may be a couple of projects that lead the list.

Keep in mind that if he or she isn’t licensed, you'll need to hire a specialized contractor who is.  If not, you could be liable financially if damages occur. Now, if you try to sell your Dallas area home, you could end up paying more to fix the issue, so it meets local code requirements.  Certainly no one wants that to happen!

Here is the perfect solution.  Call Home Pro Services of Dallas.  You see, with Home Pro NO job is too big or too small.  Their professional home repair contractors can help with anything from basic handyman repairs to all of the complicated matters that you thought required a contractor and all at a competitive price!  Call Home Pro Services of Dallas today at (214) 886-3326.

Yes, General.

The very word connotes a higher level of authority, doesn’t it?  For our purposes today, a general contractor is responsible for the overall coordination of a project.  The Big Kahuna!  In the case of renovations, a site visit is required to get a better understanding of the project.  The contractor then fixes a price proposal.

A general contractor is responsible for providing all the material, labor, equipment, and services necessary for a construction of the project.  A general contractor often hires specialized subcontractors to perform the construction work.  When using subcontractors, the general contractor is responsible for the quality of all work performed by all of the hires.

It is a really big deal for a really important job.  Do you know a company that regularly works with general contractors in the Dallas area?  We do.  It’s Home Pro Services.  There is a tab on their website homeprocontracting.com that will give you more details under the term contractors.  After you have read that you should be very comfortable in calling (214) 886-3326.

Forty Inches…That’s a Lot!

Alright, calm down.  Forty inches is the amount of average rainfall that the Dallas area receives in a year.  Over 365 (or 366) days that may not seem like a lot, but ask your basement (if it could talk) after a good drenching.  When you are walking IN water and not ON it that is anything but an ideal situation!

There are many companies in the Metroplex that advertise clean-up from water damage.  Are you looking for just cosmetic cleaning, or a thorough restoration of your beloved basement?  You can get by with just having the excess water removed, or you can return that important area of your home to as good as new.

That’s what the crew from Home Pro Services does.  They will come into your Dallas area castle, roll up their sleeves and give your basement the look, feel, and even smell that it used to have.  For true flood restoration please call the handymen at Home Pro Services of Dallas.  That phone number is (214) 886-3326.

Events in Dallas for Valentine's Day

(Click the link above for more information)

"Whether you're looking for a unique and unforgettable date night or grand romance, Dallas has something for every type of couple this Valentine's Day."

Popcorn, Get Your Popcorn.

How about REMOVE your popcorn?  Oh yeah, popcorn ceilings were all the rage decades ago.  What they did was hide the imperfections so that no painting was required afterwards.  However, we found that the rough texture catches cobwebs and dust and it can be very difficult to remove and match if you have cracks that need patching.

Here are some important tips to follow when removing popcorn from the ceiling –

1.  Do a scrape test from a small portion of your ceiling
2.  Always test for asbestos if it is older than 40 years.
3.  Remove all the furniture from the room.
4.  Prepare for a Big Mess.
5.  Hire a professional already!

Just some of the steps above (with a lot more to follow) should prompt you to call THE handyman company in Dallas.  That’s Home Pro Services.  They will handle any and all popcorn removal and considering the price of popcorn at Metroplex movie theaters, do it for a lot less than you might think!  Call Home Pro Services at (214) 886-3326.
