Why “Free Estimates” offered by Pressure Washing Services is a Con-Game

Picture this… A power washing guy gives you an approximate cost (An Estimate) he will charge you for the pressure washing work you want done… But first… You will pay him $50 for the Estimate. In other words, he won’t tell you how much his pressure washing services are unless you pay him $50 first. LOL… I know… it sounds so ridiculous… Would you ever pay a power wash guy for an estimate? HAVE you ever paid a power wash guy for an estimate? Seriously… Ask your neighbors, friends, family and the guy on line at Harris Teeter, if they ever paid for a pressure washing estimate in and around Charlotte, NC. I’m so sure about this… I’ll buy you dinner at one of Charlotte’s finest restaurants if you know someone who literally paid for a pressure washing service estimate… no joke. I find this to be a fact… not an opinion… which is why I am begging for someone to tell me WHY? Why do power wash guys always offer residential homeowners- Free Estimates? Are we as homeowners lured by this? Are we robots when we hear the word

Do It Yourself Exterior Painting

You’ve peeled away old paint, you’ve sanded your surfaces, we’ve pressure washed away debris. Your home’s wooden exterior is ready for a fresh coat of paint. In our last blog, we covered the first steps you’ll need to take to prepare your surface for paint, as well as the tools and materials you’ll need to get the job done. Today, we’ll be talking about the process you should follow to make exterior painting a snap. Plan Ahead Once your surfaces are dry after pressure washing, you’ll want to paint on a day that’s sunny. Shoot for a day that has no chance of rain. Each coat will need to be applied to a dry surface or your freshly applied paint may bubble and crack. If it rains as you’re tackling your home-painting project, you’ll have to wait until the surface is dry once again to continue. Taping Off Surfaces & Drop Cloths Tape off edging, windows, and corners where your paint colors will be different. If you’re painting your edging after you’ve painted the majority of your exterior surface, you can be a bit messier. Paint these surfaces

So, you’ve opened up your pool, you’ve cleaned out the filter, and you’ve perfectly balanced the pH levels. You’ve uncovered your grill, and you’ve cleaned the grate. Then you purchased four bags of charcoal, and 18 bottles of lighter fluid. You stocked your freezer with 20 pounds of hot dogs, five full chickens, and half of a cow. You even purchased a four-pack of veggie burgers for your cousin Rachel. On top of that, you built 45 kabobs. You purchased 800 dollars worth of completely legal fireworks. You combed your shedding dog so that the Clarkson boys don’t sneeze from their allergies. You trimmed the claws on your cat so that it doesn’t maim the Clarkson boys (everyone knows that Priscilla is prone to freaking out at the sound of a sneeze). You built your own kegerator out of the kitchen fridge (which the wife wasn’t terribly enthused about, but she doesn’t mind an

Pressure Washing Your Deck Oh how Pop prides himself in his deck. Legend has it that he built the thing with his bare hands (of which he reminds you on every occasion he gets). Each galvanized nail was hand-selected according to it’s weight, balance, and straightness. Each board was hand cut from redwood that was dried over warm coals for four days and five nights (and the story goes that the soul of the redwood forest resides in a knot within the board right before the doorway). It took three years to sand the boards (silk was used in lieu of sandpaper). The lacquer is a secret mixture of tree saps that have been imported from Japan, Portugal, Ghana, and West Virginia (there may also be a hint of prohibition-era grain alcohol infused into the mix). The deck even
