Week of 8/12-8/15/13
Well another week as come and gone it feels like the summer is flying by us and we are not really getting a chance to enjoy because we are mainly working indoors (not complaining ;-)
So I thought I could write these Blogs daily but it becomes hard when I only have a small window of time to write proposal, break-down drawings write take-offs, responded to emails, help design living spaces and be hands-on on the job (again not complaining!) My goal with these Blogs is to keep everyone interested in our company and our services informed on what we are doing and how to go about completing our jobs. So my point is that weather it daily or weekly I will post what we are doing.
This week we started a bathroom, completed a floor in a apt in the Doric building in union city and completed a roof in Fairview.
The floor is a floating floor real easy to install just click them together and thats it the hard part is cutting and ripping them down to size ( well really it's not hard for us but you know what I mean). Once the floor is laid down we add shoe molding to the base molding and there you go a beautiful floor well finished (now I can tell by looking at the pictures that we did not paint the old molding because we are looking to go back and paint the entire apt soon) The floor look great and match very nice with the existing tile floor in the kitchen.
The roof in fairview was an easy one for us it was an overlay about 25 sq's it took us all day to complete, we used GAF Lifetime shingles
Someone asked me this week how we complete a bathroom and I told him we typically a bathroom project goes as fallowed; we demo, we frame what needs framing then the electrician and plumber come in and do there thing, depending on it complexity they should be done 2-5 days , then rough inspections from your town. Once we pass we continue by sheet-rocking/ Du-rocking the walls, installing tiles, installing vanities , installing fixtures etc... until we finish! Plumber and electrician have to come back to help with the finishes, generally a bathroom takes us from the first inspection about 7-14 working days to complete.
