My highest recommendations

I just want to take this opportunity to send my highest recommendations for the new owners of Salmon Arm Home Repair & Renovation Ltd – Tomi and Jelena Skupnik. Their company made a very difficult and complex situation for me tolerable through their professionalism, competency and yes, their kindness. Their Christian background/faith was very much self-evident in all their dealings with me. I just want people who may need their services now or in the future to know that they … Read More

From repair to reno!

The client called Salmon Arm Home Repair for what they originally thought was a quick repair of a “soft spot” in their otherwise great deck. Stewart and his crew went by to take a look, and they discovered the source of the “soft spot”… carpenter ants! Just look at the damage those pests caused to the support posts (and some of the deck itself). After consultation with Stewart about what their options were and the costs involved, the clients decided … Read More

Prepare before you paint!

Before painting wash walls with Trisodium phosphate (TSP) and rinse well. TSP is excellent for removing all types of grease such as kitchen grease, smoke and nicotine residue and oils from fingers. Washing  with TSP also softens the old paint and allows the new paint to bond better with the old.

Stop Paint Bleed

After you tape off an area with painters tape to get a straight line, go over the edge of the tape again with your finger tip or hard object to firmly press it down.   After painting wait about 30 minutes then remove the tape before the paint completely cures to prevent ripping the new from sticking to the tape. Let me know if my explanation confuses the issue… I am just a phone call away 250-833-9446 (or email)
