Greetings to our excellent Fix-it Frank LLC customers! I hope this post finds you all well and healthy. All good here with us, thank God! It's been quite awhile since my last post, though it's crossed my mind to write a blog post countless times, it seems that until now, I've not had the energy, time, nor inclination to do so. Today, however...
By way of an update, Fix-it Frank LLC has been extremely busy with taking care of our customers since perhaps the middle of February. Things are rockin' here, and it doesn't look like we're poised to slow down much anytime soon. Now that is a great "problem" to have, in my opinion. I've spent my share of time beating down the bushes looking for some way to fill our calendar with profitable business. At this point, business has been, and still is, falling in my lap. It's amazing. I have mentioned to more than a few folks that it seems as though folks are sitting at home, during this Covid-crazed time, staring at the walls, and thinking, "I don't like how these walls look! It's time to finally do something about it."
Since February, Fix-it Frank LLC has started and completed three complete-ish home remodels, two flooded basement renovations, who knows how many back splash tear out and re- installations, quite a few bathroom remodels, three kitchens, and innumerable other smaller repairs, including the installation of our very first installation of a water-powered backup sump pump. That type of sump pump was a new one on me, but one of our long-time customers wanted both of his existing sump pumps replaced (along with tearing out an above the stove microwave, removal of some back-splash, installation of a very fancy range hood, and installation of complimentary back splash) and the additional installation of this water-powered contraption. It's a pretty impressive and logical option, in that regardless of whether your power goes out, THIS pump will continue working, since it's powered by your city water line alone, no electricity involved at all. If you might be interested in something like that for yourself, please contact us and we'll make it happen. Here's a shot of the item in question below. The electric sump pump is attached to the white pipe coming out of the center of the black circular cover, while the black and white pump on the upper left is the water-powered one. The larger pipe is part of a radon extraction system that shares that site. In the end, everything went together into a neat, clean little system. We'd be happy to create the same system for you as well. Just give us a call!
I created and installed our first-ever decorative epoxy counter-top, as part of a basement wet-bar install. That was part of a whole-house remodel that we handled with aplomb. Nothing too flashy for this fine lady, but just enough to cause someone visiting to remark on the lovely "marble" counter top. I'll shortly be creating sample boards with various different patterns and colors of "stone" counters. We're also going to start "remodeling" tables, creating faux stone tables, which will likely be available for sale in the near future. I'll occasionally post photos of our creations as time goes on, in case anyone out there might need such a beauty to grace their dining room.
Here is a shot or so of the wet-bar and counter...
These shots of the cabinets and such are not quite the finished product. We also installed a sink, faucet, and door handles, as well as kick-plate on the bottom. But, I cleverly misplaced the finished photos. So those will come later. My apologies, my good people.
