Exploring Home Repair Materials and Tools

Hello everyone, my name is Mabel Abram. My home was recently vandalized when I was out of town for a couple weeks. Upon returning home, I was shocked to see graffiti on the walls and flooring ripped up. I called a local contractor to give me a bid on the work. I elected to have the materials restored to their original state by the contractor. The job required replacement of some of the support materials, including floor joists and drywall. I want to lead people through the process of repairing damage to their home through this website. My site will teach people about building materials and tools used for repair and remodel jobs. I will also talk about material upgrades you can use for your floors, walls and ceilings. Thank you.
