    "After almost 34 years in our Shaker Heights home and untold contractors, painting companies, and individual freelancers, we have finally found the Reilly expertise, innovation and follow through that make your mother-in-law's testimonials sound modest. Your team was outstanding. The next time I need an out-of-the-ordinary project, I will be sure to call both you for repeated work and your mother-in-law for new recommendations."

  • How To Drive on Black Ice

    Black Ice

    I walked into work this morning with no thought in my head that I would slip (the concrete looked as normal as it does everyday). And then it happened....my left foot slid forward, my back tightened up, and I nearly fell. Nobody likes black ice because you never know where it is! Driving can be a little more intense, so that's why I'm posting tips on how to drive when there's black ice out there:

    Understand that black ice is like regular ice. It is a glaze that forms on surfaces (especially roads,sidewalks, and driveways) because of a light freezing rain or because of melting and re-freezing of snow, water, or ice on surfaces. It's called "black ice" because it tends to look like the rest of the pavement on the road, although in reality, it's actually clear. Black ice forms without creating bubbles, which allows it to blend in with any surface it forms over.[1] Black ice is dangerous precisely because it's hard to detect in advance.

    Know where to expect black ice. Black ice usually forms just about the freezing point. Sometimes in frigid weather conditions on highways, black ice will form due to the heat of tires on the road coupled with the freezing temperature. Keep an eye on the weather and highway reports. Black ice forms most commonly at night or in the early morning when the temperatures are at their lowest, or when the sun isn't around to warm the roads.[2]
