    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

  • Winter House Maintenance Tips

    Winter may have come early in Cleveland, but that doesn't mean your house problems are hibernating.  Homeowners often forget that this cold weather can be rough on a home.  Don't neglect your wintertime home maintenance, or you'll find yourself in need of some seriously expensive repairs!  Luckily, Reilly Painting & Contracting provides year round service to make sure your home stays in the best condition, so you don't have to worry about unexpected emergency fixes.

    If your roof has the charming look of icicles lacing its edges during the winter, you shouldn't be so charmed.  Icicles mean that you have poor insulation and you're losing heat, which causes the snow on your roof to melt and form icicles over the edge.  Cleveland contractors Reilly Painting & Contracting can help fix these insulation problems and make your home more energy efficient.  We also provide winter snow and ice removal.

    There are lots of areas in your home that may be inefficiently insulated, so it is always a good idea to do a yearly inspection of areas where you may be losing heat, like drafty doors and windows.  But maybe you're more worried about your home's foundation.  We also waterproof basements, so you don't have to worry about water leaking in, ruining your foundation, and flooding your home.  And don't forget, the number one cause of flooded basements is actually clogged and broken gutters!  When the water from your roof (and all that melting snow) isn't getting channeled away from your home's foundation, cracks and leaks develop.  It's not too late to call Reilly Painting and Contracting and schedule a gutter cleaning, but don't wait too long, because time's running out.
