Cabinet refinish Glen Kernan area.

These are the before photos of a builder-grade cabinets set that we are going to prime & paint in conversion varnish, (Sherwin Williams 7005) SW-Pure White, which is an off-white, very popular with cabinet refinishers abroad.

Conversion varnish is a non-yellowing enamel, that is durable and easy to clean.

Prepare Garage for Monkey Bars Remodel

Customer needed garage remodeled before Monkey Bars (garage organizer systems) came in to install their organizer systems. We started by removing all the popcorn ceiling texture which was falling off the ceiling anyway, then we installed Double knockdown texture and sealed the ceilings with oil so they won’t have any future moisture issues even in the garage. Then we sanded cleaned and prepped all the walls, before painting them with Sherwin Williams exterior satin to make them tough, scrubbable and wipe-able. Then we cleaned the base and the window sills well, before caulking and putting them. After a brief drying period, we painted all the base, casings, window sills and doors with two coats of Sherwin Super Paint semi-gloss.

Drywall/Insulation replacement followed by interior painting in “Linkside” at Baymeadows.

We installed new insulation in wall followed by greenboard drywall for extra mold and mildew protection in the future, and then painted the interior of the room and trim with Sherwin-Williams mid-grade Superpaint products. 

Wood floor repair at “The Peninsula”, in San Marco

Water intrusion issue from a faulty window problem caused the engineered floor to swell, bunch and tent. We came in and installed a dust containment tent/barrier and cut out damaged wood planks. Then we will finger in new boards carefully to re-secure the planks together in the center. 

Soffit Vent Replacements

The little strange vents on your soffits play a very important role on regulating the temperature and humidity of your attic space. It is important that these vents are able to flow freely. I have seen them 75% painted closed and barely functioning.

Most builders from the 80’s and 90’s used metal screens for these Vents and between 15 and 20 years they usually rot out, we replace them with heavy-duty vinyl. Then we paint them with a light coat to match the soffits and they last forever!!

Fill in skylights and install beaded vinyl on a back porch ceiling on Southside

Customers wanted to fill-in skylights, on converted back porch area, to eliminate all the excess heat and humidity they caused. So we cut plywood and installed a ledger, dropped in cut outs of 3/4 plywood and screwed them down well.

Then we removed poorly installed and missing crown molding exposing an expected 1″-2″ gap along the top of the wall area. They never finished the drywall all the way up!!

So I called my drywall guy and had him go over there and do a quick fix with some tape and some mud to bring the drywall tops up so that there’s not going to be an uneven large gap at the top. It was unexpected but it was a little extra. Keyword, little.

(First two are before pictures)

Drywall install in new garage in Orange Park

Customers had separated garage workshop built on the side of their home. They called us for an estimate to install drywall, I recommended green board to thwart any moisture issues in the future. We finished the walls smooth finish and textured the ceilings with knockdown texture.

Then we primed the walls with Sherwin’s Problock latex primer/sealer.

Custom Bathroom Remodel in Mandarin

Repeat customer had us back to remodel their master bathroom after having us remodel their hall bath last year.

We decided to build a custom shower with double niches and smaller shave ledge. Customers bought pre-made foam niche and bench from www.NobleCompany.com space age foam that will never mold and is super easy to install and tile over. We cut down regular corner seat to custom build lower shave ledge. Custom listello’s installed in wainscotting that crenalates around room and continues through shower without missing a beat and a second designer listello that runs above first border and tops the standing diamonds, chest-high, only in shower area.

Drop-in floor, listello border also runs around the angles and turns of the room adding pop to the floor and standing soldier border to surround diamond pattern inside border.

And finally Black Magic sill on curb sets off the darker accents in mosaic sheet tile for the shower floor.

Subfloor reinforcement in Riverside

Subfloor in Riverside was badly damaged, and was grossly under-built originally. The joists were never supported between each other with “hangers” and the slats (1″x4″) above the joists was badly water-damaged and dry-rottened. So we removed the damaged slats, installed 2″x8″ support boards (approx. 60 total) to shore up the floor, installed pressure-treated slats (cheaper) and re-screwed the entire complex. Then we installed new 3/4″ plywood subfloor using 2 1/2″ screws hitting joists as we moved. We also laid down 15 lbs. roofing felt as a moisture/sound dampener & barrier.

Tile foyer installation in Hidden Hills subdivision

Customers had used us to remodel their master bathroom just 30 days ago, they loved the tile from the floors that they had us remove the floating laminate they had in the foyer and install a much more durable finish for their 2 small puppies.
