    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • Love Your Home Again: By A Cleveland Heights Resident

    [caption id="attachment_5861" align="alignleft" width="309" caption="Love Your Home Again"]Home[/caption]

    Take a look at this article from Allison Urbanek of The Cleveland Heights Patch, as she discusses the many problems she has with her Cleveland Heights home:

    I love my home, but we have a complicated relationship. Often I am so proud of it and want to show it off to all of my friends and neighbors. But there are other days, when something breaks, that I want to run out and put up the “For Sale” sign. There’s proof in that old saying, “when it rains, it pours,” as that happened to me recently.

    I have an enclosed front porch. It’s very spacious, with some comfy chairs and a wooden antique table where I love to entertain. As most of you recall, it rained a lot this past summer, and I was uncomfortably aware of a small leak in the roof of that front porch. I was determined that my fiancé and I could fix this leak – no problem.

    Well, it rained and rained and rained. We were not able to get up there and fix it, so it rained and rained and rained into my front porch. When the sun finally came out, we trudged up on the roof and then just stood there for a while. We realized that we had no clue how to do this repair.

    From working at Home Repair Resource Center, I knew some of the language (like drip edge, flashing and ice guard,) but Dave is no Bob the Builder, and I’m certainly not Wendy. So, we decided to take a class on roof repair at Home Repair Resource Center. Together, Dave and I learned how to fix our roof, which turned out to be an amazing project to share. Afterwards, I could once again sit in my comfy chairs and entertain at my beautiful antique table.

    As young homeowners, it’s hard to know where to turn. It is not like you get the keys to your house and you instantly become this all-knowing person who, with a flick of the wrist, can fix whatever may pop up. So, it’s important to learn as you go and begin to build a knowledge base.  And, where do you get the tools you need?  Why buy a tool that you may use only once or twice?  You can save that money to add a heated towel rod (you know you’ve always wanted one) or heated flooring in the bathroom… the wish list is endless.

    1. It’s always tough dealing with things that break around the house. Be sure to have a few good professionals a call away if you need help.
