Late night towing

Late night towing

Is there anything more annoying than experiencing a car break down when you are driving late at night? Maybe driving far away from familiar surroundings and having your car fail on you when you need it most is even more frustrating.  For anybody that drives it’s a great idea to always have a emergency preparedness back up plan for just that rainy night when your car rolls to a stop or when it won’t start up.  Best case scenario you get a flat tire, and since most models of cars these days come with a jack and a spare, if you aren’t disabled you should be able to change the tire yourself.  If you happen to be a populated area chances are you can flag somebody down to lend a hand.  But if you are stuck on an interstate highway with not a car in sight then this situation might pose as a more challenging one.  Cars are machines and most will eventually break down or experience some kind of operational failure, often times because of lack of proper care and maintenance.  Getting regular checkups, tuneups and oil changes drastically reduces the chances of having your car die on you sooner than it should.  But there is also the factor that many of the newer cars on the roads these days have intricate computers running them internally and when there is a failure in the car computer that can cause other issues that are not so readily found and repaired .  To plan ahead, make sure you have a local car tow company on speed dial in your phone, or keep a short list of good ones in your glove compartment that you can call just in case.  They might be able to tow you right to their repair shop to fix your car, or in some cases they can car tow you to your dealership or right to home.  One of the best things is that tow companies are usually open 24 hours just for those late night towing calls when you are least expecting to have to call for a tow.

Old Floors Like New Again

Old Floors Like New Again

We just bought a new ranch house on the South Shore area of Boston. The house was built in the ’50s and hasn’t had much work up to it for 30 years. Most of the floors were covered with an orange shag carpet that was heavily stained from years of tread and smoking. When we closed on the house and finally were able to start demo to renovate, the first thing we did was rip out the awful carpet. Once we removed the old carpet we were pleasantly surprised to find hardwood floors underneath. Although they seemed to be in decent condition, they did however have lots of stains in and because the carpet down, the floor boards were full of staples.  At first we considered just starting from scratch and buying some wide planks and take the time to redo all the floors.  But then we realized they could probably be salvaged.  My brother and I spent many long hours removing the staples from the floor by hand. Originally we thought maybe we could rent some of the machinery and refinish the floors ourselves ourselves. But there were so many holes in the wood and stain that it proves to be a bridge too far from my capabilities. We were doing other work on the house as well and had to move in in a timely fashion.  I started doing a little research for hardwood floor refinishing Boston and found some reputable companies who could come in and do it in a few days. After searching and checking some reviews I found a good company that could fill all the holes with putty then sand it down.  They used a dustless sander which made clean up much easier. They were also able to do two gorgeous coats of polyurethane and gave the floor beautiful Shane. We been in the house about two years now and the floor still looks amazing and we can’t believe this gorgeous hardwood was under all the carpet.
