Tips and Tricks for Repairs, Remodeling, and Siding

C&S Construction LLC wants to help you protect your greatest investment. Here are a few tips and tricks that you can use to get a longer life out of items in your house.

Have a Stained Tub?

To help remove the stain, you just need to follow a couple of simple steps. First, combine cream of tartar and baking soda in equal amounts, with just enough lemon juice to make a paste. Then, you rub the paste on the stain with your fingers or a soft cloth. After, you let it set for half an hour. Once that time has passed, rinse the spot well with water. We can help you breathe new life into your bathroom. Give us a call at 253-661-9980.

Are your windows stuck?

If your sliding windows are stuck, a little silicone spray lubricant (sold at hardware stores) will grease the skids. First, spray it on to a rag, then wipe along the tracks whether they're metal, wood, or plastic. If you've done this and they're still sticky, they might need to be replaced. Give us a call at 253-661-9980 and let us know. We'll provide you with a free estimate on a replacement.

Is your door sticking or creaking?

If your door is sticking or creaking, it might be the hinges. Spray a little WD-40 onto the hinges, moving the door back and forth. This helps to work in the lubricant. You can also try rubbing the hinges with petroleum jelly, instead. If neither of these tricks work, you can lift the hinge pins about halfway and lubricate them with three-in-one oil. Make sure to use a rag to catch anything that drips. If this still doesn't do the job, give us a call at 253-661-9980. There's no job too small.
