Exterior Pressure-Washing

If you have lived in the south for more than ten minutes, you may have noticed that the buildings here tend to turn green – not with envy, but with moss. If you have a stone house, you might be able to get away with the whole moss-covered cottage thing, but most of us don’t and our houses just end up looking dirty and unattractive. 

This is why Hampton Inn & Suites in Hope, AR called Hostetler Handyman Service. Because it’s bad enough to see your own home looking uninviting, but if you have a hotel and you are literally in the business of being welcoming, green-ish brown, dirty-looking exterior walls are a real problem. Luckily, we live in the 21st century and there is a solution: pressure-washing.

But these green marks aren’t just ugly; mold and mildew are damaging both to the building and to the people inside it. If you choose to ignore the green growing on the outside of your house, it will continue to spread and may even start to grow inside of the walls. Ask anyone who has had mold inside their home: it’s not worth it.

Fair warning: when done incorrectly, pressure-washing can be hard on your house and make your situation worse instead of better. If an inexperienced person is running the machine, you may end up with water inside your walls, damaged exterior siding, mortar blasted away on brick houses, window seals leaking, or ruined paint jobs on the exterior walls. Unless you’ve had experience or you just don’t care about your home, pressure-washing is not DIY job. Save your home: be like Hampton Inn and get a professional to help you out.

In order to clean every inch of the three-story exterior walls, we rented a 56′ boom lift from Hugg & Hall Equipment Co.

So how’s your home looking? If it’s getting a bit green around the edges, you might want to think about the future and make a decision today to save yourself some pain down the road.

Wouldn’t you like to have a house where you can touch the exterior walls without feeling contaminated? Where you can invite guests over without feeling embarrassed about how dirty the outside of your house looks?

Hostetler Handyman Service is qualified to pressure-wash hotels, but we also care enough about your home to do residential pressure-washing. Call us today at (870) 845-1121 to get a free estimate on making your house clean and beautiful again.

Wooden Deck

You know those houses that look like someone set them down somewhere randomly? They don’t look like they belong there, and they don’t look particularly inviting. And chances are, they don’t have a porch.

There’s just something about a porch that makes a house feel like a home, but not all houses have one. Maybe you didn’t think you wanted a porch when you built your house, but now you’re regretting that. Maybe you bought your house and it didn’t come with a porch. Either way, if you don’t have a porch and you wish you did, you might want to consider having us add a wooden deck to your home, the way this gentleman did.

We built this deck out of YellaWood® treated lumber:

His porch came with matching wooden steps leading into his house:

Choosing a 10′ x 21′ size allows plenty of space for relaxing outside on pleasant evenings,

-and the Tamko® Weathered Wood shingle roof means he can still relax outside on rainy days without getting wet:

What do you think? Would your house feel just a little more like a home with one of these added on? Do you need somewhere to host your friends for a barbecue next summer?

Give us a call at (870) 845-1121 for a free estimate on getting a covered deck of your own.

Additions on House, Part 2.5 – Kitchen & Bathroom

We’ve seen the exterior and interior of the first addition, and we’ve had a look at the exterior and the entryway of the second addition. This leaves us with two more rooms in the second addition: a summer kitchen and a bathroom.

We start off with the kitchen, drywall hung but not yet painted:Photo Dec 13, 11 12 30 AM

Kitchen cabinet installation in process:2017-01-03 13.51.48

The cabinets are installed and painted, and the countertops and the sink are in place:HB4116

The finished kitchen in all its glory:20180109_081434

On the right side of the kitchen we have the washer and dryer, with storage compartments above and beneath:20180109_081952

Next to the washer and dryer, one of the drawers is a fold-out ironing board in disguise:20180109_083052

Close-up of the big stainless steel apron sink:20180109_083035

And on the left side of the kitchen we have the stove and refrigerator, gleaming stainless steel against the bold white lines of the tile backsplash:20180109_083123

Next we take a look into the bathroom, where the vanity cabinet is installed and shower built, but not yet tiled:2017-01-03 13.51.54

The gray vanity and cabinets and white marbled countertop with contrasting black handles and faucet make for a stunning bathroom:20180109_081013

And we finish with a quick look into the all-tile walk-in shower:
