There’s Nothing Like a Morning Shower.

Isn’t that the truth?  What if it’s time for a remodel?    Figuring out how to remodel a shower can be tough.  The question will always start with…should you try to do it yourself, or hire a professional contractor?  The first answer evolves from how many of these have YOU done in your lifetime?

Here are some other questions to ask –

1.  How much ongoing maintenance are you willing to tolerate?
2.  What can you NOT see behind your shower walls?
3.  Did you plan a budget?
4.  Did you talk to a trusted handyman and/or contractor?

If you have done your due diligence you will probably come to realize that you may be “penny-wise and pound foolish” if you try to make it a DIY job.  That’s why, here in the Dallas area, we are blessed to have the steady hands of Home Pro Services.  They handle more residential and commercial chores than you can imagine.  Call them at (214) 886-3326.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make me a Match.

Tevya step aside.  This is about matching existing textures when patching drywall.  There are different variables involved that will contribute to whether or not you can see the line of demarcation between a new drywall patch and the existing drywall texture which surrounds it.  Now, that takes a real matchmaker!

Here are a few tips for those that care to roll up their sleeves –

1.  Always use exactly the same thickness as the existing layer.
2.  Don’t coat too much of the existing texture.
3.  Remove the lines between the patch and the surrounding drywall texture.
4.  Use the same methods and tools that were used originally for exact duplication.

Unless you are a bit of a magician these steps sound WAY to hard, don’t they?  Not for Home Pro Services of Dallas they aren’t!  When you have done drywall texturing over and over hundreds of times you get pretty good at it.  Call Home Pro Services for your next drywall project at (214) 886-3326.
