    "Just a quick follow-up note on the work your crews did at my house over the last couple of weeks. In short; the porch railing, painting and tuck pointing was done professionally and looks great. More important, the crews that were out were customer service oriented, thoughtful, friendly and always let me know what was going on. I would not hesitate to recommend Reilly Painting."

  • Put an End to Those Nagging House Problems

    Is this your common expression when the house doorbell fails to ring...yet again?



     It's probably safe to say that you've felt that way about a number of home repair problems including

    • The garage door not closing properly
    • Lights not turning on or dimming the right way
    • Patio or deck feeling "uninviting"...maybe you're even embarrassed to take guests out there

    As Cleveland enters into the fall season, now's the time to start thinking about those pesky house problems that should be fixed BEFORE the cold weather sets in. To help you feel overwhelmed, we at Reilly Painting and Contracting recommend creating a fall home maintenance checklist to go through with a professional. Items on those checklist include

    • Get your mind in the gutters. Inspect and clean gutters and downspouts.
    • Button up your overcoat. Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors with weather-stripping and caulk.
    • Get on top of roof problems. Inspect your roof for damaged or curled shingles, corroded flashing, or leaky vents.
    • Walks the walks (and drives). Take steps to repair damaged sidewalks, driveways, and steps.
    • Chill out. Drain and winterize outdoor faucets and irrigation systems.
    • Freshen your filter. Clean or replace dirty furnace filters.
    • Give your furnace a physical. Have a professional inspect your heating system.
    • Gather round the hearth. Check fireplaces for soot or creosote build-up. Better yet, schedule a visit from a reputable chimney sweep.

    If you need help tackling any of these house repair problems, please contact Reilly Painting and Contracting today to set up an appointment: (216) 371-8160.
