A shed gets a new facelift in Virginia Beach



 A recent example of Bob’s Jobs work – a shed upgrade


The exterior of a Virginia Beach homeowner’s shed needed an upgrade; the old Luan plywood was showing extensive water damage, with curling edges, warped boards and peeling paint.  The homeowner had already gotten an estimate from another handyman and wasn’t impressed with that person’s suggestions about the repairs.

Bob suggested taking down the old plywood and replacing it with “SmartSide” siding, an idea the client liked, so we were hired to do the work.

Unfortunately, Bob discovered termite damage (Tidewater’s favorite pest!) on one of the 2 X 4’s after removing the plywood.  Because the client was out of town on business, Bob took a picture of the damage and texted him a message with the photo image attached.  The homeowner was pleased with Bob’s quick communication and readily agreed to pay extra to have the wood replaced.

The termite damage exposed and repaired:

The new exterior of the 372 square foot shed took about 4 workdays to complete and the client was very happy with the outcome.  He finally has a shed that looks as nice as the rest of his well-kept property, with its nicely manicured landscaping and in-ground swimming pool.
