TOH: Trade School- Exclusive Preview of The Electric Slide!Posted by plumbingpros in Home Improvement Tips, on November 20, 2017
General contractor Tom Silva finishes up the last of the structural work – replacing an undersized and partially rotted old post in the kitchen. Window restoration specialist Alison Hardy reinstalls the restored historic window sashes in the dining room, adding spring-action hardware and weatherstripping to make them more efficient. In the garage, host Kevin O’Connor finds electrician Allen Gallant upgrading the electrical service to 100 amps so it can function as a workshop. Allen installs a system of metallic tubing as conduit on the inside of the building, and outside, brings the wires to the garage via a fishing system controlled by foot pedals for safety. In the study, Tom shows Kevin how he’s removing the more modern narrow strip flooring to reveal the more historic wide pine boards underneath. With a light sanding and clear finish, the two hundred year old patina will stay intact. For more stories like this from Bay Area Plumbing Headquarters, bookmark our site.
