The Last Thing I Heard Was,

“The Floor Had Been Fixed Before”.

 

 

 

These are not the most comforting words to hear when there is a need for me to fix a problem. The flooring was soft in the bathroom and needed attention. I was told that it had been repaired before, not too long ago. I thought to myself, if it were fixed why is it bad again?

So the source of the problem was never corrected, the damaged material was replaced. Of course that is a whole new subject matter that is not done right either. The framing that was added to the floor was random, loose, and in no way professionally done. It was not covered with plywood but a water absorbing sheet of particle board. It swelled like a sponge.

All of this needs to be done right AND the water leak that was never addressed, corrected!

A Public Park with Room to Roam

in Carmichael, CA

 

 

I can remember growing up and my parents taking the family to the park and how much fun that was. It wasn’t just a patch of grass with a few trees stuck in the acres of residential homes that we see in the newer communities in the Sacramento area. No, these parks seem to go on for miles. Maybe that was my perception but many did not has a home in sight.

Sacramento does have its share of large functional parks for us to enjoy in many of the established communities. One of those parks I came across while working in Carmichael, CA. While nestled in the residential town of Carmichael, it has acres of green grass and large mature trees throughout the public park.

The park has much to offer; five ball fields, basketball courts, playgrounds and restrooms to name a few. Recent additions include a Dog Park, Disc Golf, and Playground Improvements. Many more improvements are in the works for this large park in Carmichael, located at 5750 Grant Avenue, Carmichael, CA 95608.

This 38 acre Carmichael Park is open to the public, come see what it has to offer!

Your Carmichael Shower Needs a New Enclosure

 

 

I get to see a lot of damaged tub and showers in the Carmichael area of Sacramento. Homes and apartments both have a need for the repair and replacement of shower walls. This an be a fairly easy repair if the damages have not extended too far into the wall.

Long periods of neglect can allow water damage and dry rot to take place inside the wall and floor. It is best the address the problem right away. It is suggested that the work be done by a qualified contractor in Sacramento.

What Water Heater?

What Water Heater?

 

 

There are some safety issues that we need to keep in mind when it comes to water heaters. One of those important safety requirements is the free flow of air around the unit. In order to function correctly space needs to be kept open.

While talking about something else in this home, it was mentioned that the water heater still needs a pan under the unit. It can be done easily when the unit is temporarily moved.

I didn't realize it was in the room we were standing in at the time.

A bad repair will only make others wonder what is behind it.

A bad repair will only make others wonder

what is behind it.

 

 

As a general contractor in Sacramento, I get the opportunity to see a lot of water and dry rot damages in the Sacramento region. I have seen rotted wood in various stages of severity. Water damage in the early stage may be very common, but the badly damaged wood is usually what I get called to repair.

 

Quite often the area of leaking has been patched by someone in the past. Some are good patches and some are just downright silly. The patch can often be a sign of the repair, or lack of, that was done. When you see a poorly patch area, don't you wonder what it looks like below the surface.

 

Maybe it's just me but the patch work, what you see when the work is done, is a great indicator of the repair itself. There is a certain level of confidence in a contractor who has completed a repair and you can't even tell that there was a problem at one time. That's the kind of professional service that I want to see in my home.

 

I got a chance to remove a previous patch today. Though the building had been painted recently, there were signs of water staining in the area. The plywood cover was the solution by the contractor who did this work. I was asked to fix the repair.

 

Upon opening the water damaged area, it was a mess. Clearly there was not even an attempt to fix the water leaking problem. There was a hole in the roof – Still! The leak caused damage to the sheetrock fire barrier and the plywood siding above the walkway. There was no attempt to repair the siding, or drywall, much less the roof itself.

 

So rather than have a job completed, the rains continued the add to the moisture intrusion. The paint hid the signs of leaking for a while but the truth came out eventually. I got the chance today to fix this Sacramento building and restore it to a much better appearance.

 

So consider opening up the patchwork that was not done correctly, it may reveal some hidden problems that will only get worse. In the worst case the repairs are okay and the ugly patch can be done right. Either way, a bad patch is not a good thing to leave unchanged. Hire an experienced contractor to do the job right the first time.

Electrical Accidents Can Happen When You Least Expect It.

Electrical Accidents Can Happen When You Least Expect It.

 

Electrical panel in an apartment in SacramentoAn apartment community was going to have an important HUD inspection for Section 8 housing, and had an electrical concern. A few years ago, an electrical contractor ran a surface mounded conduit on the ceiling from the dining room, through the kitchen, and to the panel. Beside the fact that it looked ugly, HUD will not approve the unit.

So I was asked to make some changes so that it would pass the inspection. This included pulling the wires through the ceiling rather than on the surface. I needed to drill a hole above the panel in an area that I thought would be safe, I was wrong.

Apparently, the contractor ran a wire in the same place that I thought would be safe to drill. The drill bit cut through the romex and there was a shower of sparks raining through the hole. So I had to make some additional repairs that I hadn’t planned on when I started. J

Sometimes these things just happen, even to a contractor.

 

The good news is that I was able to open the ceiling and fix the problem without calling anyone out. Because of this, we were able to stay on schedule and finish on time; one of the benefit of hiring a licensed contractor J

Electrical accidents can happen to contractors too!
