“I don’t do windows”…we’ve all heard it before. I have even said it myself a few times, but when we moved into our new house on lake Travis it took on a whole new meaning. Our home is located in the flood plain of Lake Travis and therefore was built up on cement columns to protect it from the inevitable flood waters that have become the norm for life on the lake in Austin, Texas. This meant that 75% of my windows would require a 40 foot extension (some longer) ladder to be able to clean off the spiders webs, oak pollen and other various things that come with living near a body of water. And I don’t do ladders.
A few years ago a realtor friend recommended Paul the window guy to me when we were putting our first house on the market as part of preparation for the sale. So I decided to give him a call to see if he could help me out with my windows. Paul Drews came to the house and let out a long whistle, “You’ve got yourself one tall house.” Well after some strategerie he formed his plan and that Saturday set about cleaning our windows. We have had him back twice a year ever since. He is on time, efficient and has fair pricing. What more can you ask for from a contractor. You may have seen his truck around Hudson Bend it is bright yellow and says Window Cleaning 320-7575 and nothing more. Simple, just like Paul.
Since this is a real estate blog it is important for me to point out that when you are preparing to sell your home that cleaning your windows inside and out and will be one of the fastest ways to improve the look of your home. It is just amazing and until you’ve done it you can not realize how much of a difference it will make.
