    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."

  • Are Your Windows In Good Condition?

    [caption id="attachment_7162" align="alignleft" width="248" caption="Window Screens"][/caption]

    Trying to make sure your windows are in good condition? Have you thought about the window screens? Take a look at some of these tips for updating your window screens! Looking for Cleveland Contractors? Call Reilly Painting!

    1. Purchase screen (aluminum or vinyl), rubber spline (piping), plastic pull-tabs if security of screen is not important, and any tools you don't already own or can't borrow. The pull-tabs make removal of the screen frame easier next time it needs to be taken out.
    2. Remove the spline carefully from the trench that the screen is secured in, using the screwdriver or awl, all the way around.
    3. Using a paint brush clean the trench.
    4. Install pull-tabs into the trench, opposite the metal spring side of the frame, making sure they face to the inside of the screen.
