When it comes to redecorating at home and giving a room a whole new look, painting is often the most cost effective option for homeowners. Changing the color of the walls with paint can dramatically change the lighting, mood and energy of a room as well as highlight wall decor and furnishings.

While painting a room can be cost effective, many homeowners feel that they don’t have the time to devote to a painting project and hesitate to approach a contractor for fear of the price and the mess.

Fichtner Services recently completed a project for a homeowner in Crofton who is retired US Navy. He selected GAF Timberline HD Shingles in Pewter Gray. The project included removal of existing shingles and underlayment and installation of a new, complete GAF architectural shingle roof system.

“Outstanding experience all around. Fichtner Services was responsive to the original bid request and all additional information exchanges. Crew was on time and extremely efficient. Management team was thoroughly professional–from sales rep to project supervisor to office staff manning the phones.

Impressive choreography…no other way to describe it. While a portion of the roof deck was exposed after removal of old shingles, pulled up a panel to insert hose (and person) for blown-in insulation to increase depth of fiberglass in the attic…all while additional striping of old shingles continued elsewhere on the roof. Timed the arrival of new roofing material (delivered by flatbed with crane) to match availability of the work area. Ensured deck was water tight (moisture barrier and most of the shingles) in place at the end of day 1; returned to finish the job on day 2 in a handful of hours. Conducted thorough clean up and timely repair of two window screens damaged in the roofing process.

Encountered a problem accessing the chimney fascia (positioning/height of chimney and odd design angles) and worked with me to remove some ladder approach hazards and brought a crew in separately to complete the job.” – Paul J., Crofton, Maryland
