(1) A recent example of Bobs Jobs work what does that stain on the ceiling mean?

A landlord/property owner contacted us to repair the first floor kitchen ceiling at his rental property in Virginia Beach after he paid a plumber to repair a leak under the second story bath tub, up above the kitchen.  He informed us he wanted to hire a licensed contractor to do the work, as he had to make certain it was done correctly and per code for the tenants who reside there.

Unfortunately, after opening up the ceiling, Bobs Jobs discovered that the upstairs toilet was leaking onto the subfloor and actually dripping onto the tenants kitchen counters down below.  The dismayed homeowner understood that he had to make the repairs quickly and properly.

Here you see the exposed subflooring from both above, in the second floor bathroom, and from below, in the kitchen:

Our lead technician, Rich, set to work.  We had to remove and then rebuild the floor joists, add a header to support them, make the necessary plumbing repairs to stop the leak, install a concrete floor, top it with ceramic tile, install a new toilet and replace the damaged wooden trim around the tub/shower enclosure with plastic PVC:

Because the landlord lives in Williamsburg, about an hours drive away, we texted him photos of the damage and the repairs every day until the work was finished.  He gave us the go ahead at each step along the way.

The finished look from downstairs, in the kitchen, and from upstairs, in the bathroom:

He is extremely pleased with the results of our work as well as our communications with him throughout the process.  He now plans to have us work on a group home he owns and manages which may also need repair work related to a bathroom there.

(2) Personal adventures of Jo & Bob Memorial Day weekend

Just like many folks, we enjoyed celebrating the national holiday with cookouts. an outdoor concert, a bike ride and some down time.

We had fun at a huge neighborhood cookout on Saturday evening, with a live band, plenty of food and a fire pit:

We spent Sunday evening enjoying the music of the Deloreans. the local 80s cover band, down at the 31st Street stage at the oceanfront.  Before the band started, we rode up and down a very crowded boardwalk, getting some exercise in and seeing the sights:

We ended the 3 day weekend with a small cookout at the home of Jos dad, a veteran of 3 wars, cooking marinated chicken, corn and veggies on the grill.  Yummy!

(3) Whats going on at Bobs Jobs the BEST handyman service in Virginia Beach award!

We were THRILLED to have been selected the best handyman service in Virginia Beach. based on our social media presence!  Its so nice when hard work and persistence pay off.

Here is a portion of the press release announcing our selection:

Each year, the Virginia Beach Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Virginia Beach area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2014 Virginia Beach Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Virginia Beach Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Wed love to be able to take some time to celebrate our award, but weve been so busy working and taking on a couple of new technicians to help us out, we havent had a chance to do so yet!  However, we have a vacation coming up soon (stay posted, pictures to come!), so we figure we will relax and rest on our laurels at that time.  Well, at least for a few minutes!

If youd like service from the BEST handyman, renovation and remodeling company in Virginia Beach (not to mention the other south side Hampton Roads cities), call Jo at Bobs Jobs, 757-318-0484 and well get your jobs on our calendar!
