    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

  • Use Old Wood For New Designs


    If you have old pieces of wood…don’t throw them out! Let the Cleveland Contractors at Reilly Painting & Contracting use those pieces and incorporate them into your home. 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.
