Zaaap!

Not everyone feels comfortable working with electricity…nor should you!  Using common sense helps. You decide whether you should consider this a DIY job or you should hire a professional who has worked with electricity many times prior. You will need a voltage tester and uninhibited access to the housebreaker for starters.

In newer homes around the Dallas area, a third wire will probably be coiled around a blue screw on the original switch. This wire is known as the ground wire, and it will need to be reattached to the new switch. If you own an older home in the Metroplex, the ground wire may NOT be available to reconnect.

All of this means that 'zap' is a very possible outcome! Not appealing sounding? How about calling the ultimate handyman electricians? That is Home Pro Contractors of Dallas. Now they know their way around a fixture or light switch. You won’t believe all that Home Pro Contractors do. Just google homeprocontracting.com. Their 24 hour number is (214) 886-3326.

Let’s Do Something Indoors.

What??!! Is that not ALL we HAVE been doing? No, what we are talking about is why not tackle an indoor home improvement project this time of year.

1.  Fasten drywall panels to the inside framework

2.  Tape the joints

3.  Smooth out imperfections

4.  Measure, cut, fit, and fasten the panels

5.  Saw, drill, or cut holes in the panels

6.  Screw panels into the framework

And that is just the beginning! Do you see why you should call Home Pro Contracting? They are the Dallas area’s drywall installation professionals.

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.

In the Dallas area? That is not very likely is it? About one out of every 25 Christmases in the Metroplex feature snowfall. For the record, the last white Christmas in the DFW area occurred just eight years ago in 2012. Now, cold fronts, that is a different story. They move into our area routinely this time of year.

To give it even greater context, there have been a total of 24 winter weather events in Northern Texas since way back in 1841 when proper records were first kept and recorded. How well do you remember 11 years ago? Rare blizzard conditions hit areas northwest of Fort Worth with 9 inches of snow! At Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, 3 inches of snow were recorded.

Regardless of what the meteorologists say about 2020 we here at Home Pro Contracting hope that your family is safe and especially healthy in this unusual year. In 2021 Home Pro Contracting of Dallas will continue serving your handyman and construction needs. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from Home Pro Contracting.

Replacing or Installing a Light Switch in your Dallas Area Home.

What kind of a job is this? Can it be done by the homeowner, or is it better left to a professional who has done it over and over again? No question about it, light switches are among the most important energy-saving tools in our homes. They allow us to easily turn off lights when lighting is not necessarily needed.

When a light switch wears out, it does not work or, even worse, it gives off sparks it is definitely a fire and shock hazard and should be replaced immediately! You don’t need an electrician to tell you that. Maybe the most logical reason to replace a light switch is better functionality. In other words, tackle the situation before it becomes a hazard.

In the Dallas area it is comforting to know that you can have light switches replaced by a licensed electrician for the price of handyman! That’s right, that is the case when you call Home Pro Contracting to do the job. You won’t believe all that they do…just visit homeprocontracting.com and see an impressive list. Call (214) 886-3326.
