    "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."

  • Use Old Wood For New Designs

    [caption id="attachment_7461" align="alignleft" width="300"] Using Old Wood For Tables![/caption]

    If you have old pieces of wood...don't throw them out! Let the Cleveland Contractors at Reilly Painting use those pieces and incorporate them into your home...possibly for some new tables. Old is in!

    When it comes to timber, what’s old can become new in the hands of artisans, craftspeople and do-it-yourselfers. Anyone with a plan can give reclaimed wood a second chance and another life.

    The patina of old hardwood is defined by its imperfections, which themselves are the result of many years of wear and tear. These imperfections -- whether they look rustic or elegant -- form a visual history that can make a table or bench look extraordinary.

    Newer wood is another option. A savvy procurer can find it on the floor of a furniture workshop or at a construction site. Whether you plan to use reclaimed wood to build an end table or to lay a new floor for a game room, there are some general rules to follow to get the best product possible.
