    Fortunately I just found out from the Shaker Heights housing inspector that everything passed inspection and that all of the violations have been successfully corrected. David did an excellent job in coordinating and assuring high-quality work on all of the many projects that were done here. We will definitely use Reilly Painting again in the future for other projects.

  • Got A Flat Screen? Here’s How To Hang It!

    [caption id="attachment_7309" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Hang That Screen!"][/caption]

    Do you have a flat screen that you want mounted on the wall? Might seem tricky, but Cleveland Contractors like Reilly Painting are here to give you some tips!

    Q: I want to hang my flat-screen TV on the wall without any wires showing. How can I do that?
    —Mark Christensen, Phoenix

    Tom Silva replies: The first step is to buy a wall mount rated to hold your TV, so you'll need to know your set's weight and screen size. Then choose a mount type. Fixed, non-adjustable mounts hold a set tight against the wall but limit how high the TV can go. (The screen should be at eye level when you're seated.) With a tilt-swivel mount like the OmniMount installed here, the TV sits farther off the wall but rotates side to side up to 90 degrees and tilts up to 15 degrees. That allows you to put the screen higher on the wall than a fixed mount and still enjoy comfortable viewing.

    Building codes don't permit TV power cords to be buried in the wall, so you'll want to use a system like the PowerBridge shown here. This two-piece receptacle kit comes wired to safely hide the cord and A/V cables behind the drywall and pick them up at the base of the wall near your signal and power source. For an even neater installation, run the cables through the hollow arms of the mount.
