Top 3 Electrical Issues At Home

As you work from home you may notice some electrical issues that are not going away. Here are our top three:

1. A bad switch. When you’ve turned on that light switch and the bulb seems fine then flickers. Do you have to hold the switch in place? Or perhaps you hear noise. Time for a professional electrician to repair or replace the switch.

2. Your circuit breaker trips. Does your circuit breaker keep tripping in your home. This is definitely a sign of a bigger problem. You may need to replace your electrical panel.

3. Surges. Transient electrical surges. They may only happen for a blink of an eye but can have a negative impact on your appliances. Besides having a power strip surge protector, this is a sign of larger problems that need to be addressed and fixed.

House Paint Services

Choosing The Right Paint for Your Home

When it comes time to paint NIC Construction & Electrical is here to get the job done.

However, these types of questions come up quite a bit. What type of paint should I use? What’s the right sheen for my house? Flat. Semi-gloss. Eggshell. What’s the best paint for my living room?

We answer these questions below:

1. What brand of paint should I use? The industry standard is paint from Dunn Edwards. They make a quality product but can be pricey. Other options include Home Depot. They have a great line of Behr paints. Lowes also offers a full line of Sherwin-Williams paints. Think of your budget and get the best you can for your home.

2. What type of sheen of paint should I use on my home’s exterior?
This is a matter of function and taste. Flat paint is the norm for the exteriors of most homes. Flat paint hides any blemishes and won’t show lap marks. It’s downfall though is it’s hard to clean. One answer to this is to use a satin/eggshell which has a slight sheen yet tough enough to keep clean. Of course, semi-gloss paint can be used for trim, and doors and has washability.

3. What type of paint should I use on the interior of my home?
This is another personal choice. Flat paints in the interior – light greys are especially popular. However, if you have kids that could be a problem. As with the exterior, flat paints on the interior do not have a good washability rating. Families with kids should use a paint with at least an eggshell sheen. Dunn-Edwards offers Suprema Velvet product line which is great for families.
