    "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."

  • Ain’t Damaged Tile The Worst? Tips For A Quick Fix

    [caption id="attachment_6972" align="alignleft" width="258" caption="Replacing Tiles"][/caption]

    Your bathroom: one of the most used rooms in your house, and probably one of the dirtiest. Tiles on the floor are bound to get damaged, so here are some tips for a quick fix. Looking for home contracting company in Cleveland? Reilly Painting is your go-to company for all your home repair needs!

    1. Tape off the edges of the surrounding tiles to protect them during the damaged tile's removal. Cover only the tiles themselves, and not the grout joints. You will be replacing the grout along with the damaged tiles.
    2. Place a nail in the center of the damaged tile and hit the nail head firmly with a hammer. This will crack the tile into pieces, while breaking it away from the substrate and making it easier for you to remove.
    3. Position the chisel in the center of the damaged tile, pointing away from your body at a 45-degree angle. Hit the chisel with the hammer into and under the damaged tile from the center out to the edges of the tile. Bring up both the tile and the mortar, down to the substrate, extending out to the edges of the surrounding tiles.
