    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Is The Sink Clogged? Here’s How To Fix It

    [caption id="attachment_7436" align="alignleft" width="212" caption="How To Fix A Clogged Sink"][/caption]

    Try this method out when dealing with a clogged sink. Can't seem to get it fixed? Call your Cleveland Contractors at Reilly Painting to fix that sink for you!

    1. Unclog a Sink: Try this First

    Skip the caustic chemical drain cleaners, and roll up your sleeves. Attack the clog in the following order:

    Fill the sink with water and vigorously pump up and down with a plunger. Direct pressure at the clog by stuffing a wet rag into the overflow hole, says Joseph Wood, owner of Boston Standard Plumbing & Heating, in Massachusetts.

    2. Unclog a Sink: Didn't Work? (see picture above)

    Pop out the drain stopper (3)—hair and soap scum tend to ball up at its base—by unscrewing the nut (1) at the back of the drain pipe and retracting the pivot rod (2). Extract the blob with a wire clothes hanger (4).
