Trevor Lahey  Certified Caulk Installer - Working for $17.40/hour non-negotiable - 2hr minimum

@synergysalesgroup sent me some items to test out. Really loving this tube on the Atfix sealant. This is going to increase the output on my beads 4x! Making my beads quicker and tighter! Can’t wait to #sendit in the morning! #caulksmith #caulk #caulking #caulker #sausagecaulk #tightbeads #keepcraftalive #atfix #sealant #contractor #contractorsofinsta #contracting #handyman #carpenter #tradesman #trades #craftsman #craftsmanship #reno #renovation #installer

When repairing cracks in facia panel, I always look to a dumper hinge for my repair! The play in the hinge allows enough movement, but ridged enough to prevent further cracks. The best part is that the hinge allows for any future access required; just open the facia like a door and work with optimal access, and then just close her up when you’re done, and no one is the wiser! #thinkingahead #repair #repairman #repairing #repairs #repairshop #handyman #deckbuilder #deckbuilding #deck #decks #construction #keepcraftalive #builder #expansion #contraction #caulksmith #craftsmanship #craftsman #carpenter #trades #tradesman #contractor #contractorsofinsta #exterior

It’s rare that I clean my brushes, but when I’m using the expensive kind, I always do! I’ve found over the years that nothing really restores them to their former glory much like urine and feces! The ammonia in the urine breaks down the stubborn crusted on paint, leaving the brush practically new. And the nutrients in the fecal matter leave a protective coating on the bristles for a long lasting brush! The best part is when you’re done they come out smelling so fresh and clean! #urine #feces #toilet #toilettraining #paint #painter #painting #cleanup #paintingtips #propainter #keepcraftalive #contractor #contractorsofinsta #carpenter #handyman #craftsmanship #craftsman #trades #tradesman #reno #renovation #instahome #caulksmith #caulker

You have to be careful when cutting into structure. Always leave an inch at the bottom of the joist, this way it will retain its structure! By running this pipe through it, and spray foaming it altogether the joist is stronger than when I started; stronger than wood itself! #ihavemadethisincrediblystrong #strength #structure #structuredesign #keepcraftalive #contractor #contractorsofinsta #handyman #carpenter #hvac #plumber #electrician #framer #craftsman #craftsmanship #reno #renovation #greaseapproved #vent #trades #tradesman

I am always looking for more effective methods to lay down them tight beads; it just so happens my back is sore from constantly bending over to tool the caulk! I figured I’d tool with a broom to alleviate some of the pain! Not only is my back feeling better but the job turned out great! 👌🏻 #caulksmith #caulk #caulking #caulker #brushedfinish #brushed #broom #caulklife #keepcraftalive #reno #renovation #craftsman #craftsmanship #handyman #carpenter #contractor #contractorsofinsta #tip #tips #tipoftheday

I always go the extra mile to avoid future call backs, not that I’d answer them anyway. Here i added a blob of adhesive into the mortise and let it ooze out after the hinge was applied. The more surface area the glue reached the stronger the connection! #screwsoptional #cabinet #cabinets #cabinetry #install #installer #adhesive #craftsman #craftsmanship #hinge #eurohinges #trades #tradesman #kitchen #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #keepcraftalive #customkitchen #customcabinets

Multitasking can be difficult! Sometimes you’re better off just taking 5 minutes to crush your snack. Luckily for me it was just potato chips; if i was rocking a pizza pie for instance, it would be tough to fix green peppers and anchovies getting stuck in the caulk! #knowyourlimits #staywithinit #potatochips #caulksmith #caulking #caulk #caulker #snack #snacks #snacktime #handyman #carpenter #contractorsofinsta #contractor #keepcraftalive #reno #renovation #trim #craftsman #craftsmanship #saltandvinegar #greatvalue

Toilet not flushing? It’s probably not vented properly! Easy fix; drill a hole in the lid! Air behind water, and your problems are solved! This will even flush that Quarter pounder with cheese you had earlier! #vent #venting #airbehindwater #toilet #problemsolved #keepcraftalive #plumber #handyman #carpenter #contractor #contractorsofinsta #craftsmanship #craftsman #trades #tradesman #mastercraftsman #rottenrons #quarterpounder #grease #greasers #greasy

Often times venting outside is too much of a hassle! That is why I invented this contraption. The secret is having a good filter, changed regularly! I try not to share too many details about my personal life on here, but I am very promiscuous, so I can change the filter daily with ease! #invention #inventions #contraption #vent #venting #exhaust #exhausting #filter #filters #handyman #carpenter #hvac #gasfitter #electricon #electrician #plumber #craftsman #craftsmanship #trades #tradesman #keepcraftalive #reno #tenovation #maintenance

When installing vanities, I generally make a few reference holes so I can get my bearings in relation to the pipe. I usually get it in 4-6 holes, it doesn’t really matter if you go over though, as it’s the inside of the cabinet. When I’m done I caulk the holes so the rats can’t get through, and then toss a pack of sponges on top! In the end no one is the wiser! #vanity #sink #sinkholes #cabinet #cabinets #install #installation #cabinetinstall #plumbing #plumber #carpenter #handyman #contractorsofinsta #contractor #keepcraftalive #trades #tradesman #craftsmanship #craftsman #reno #renovation #protip #bathroom #bathroomremodel #bathroomdesign #remodel

Keep those pesky drafts at bay with a tight bead of caulk! Think of the energy savings! The more money in my customers pocket means more billable hours on my invoice 🤷🏼‍♂️ #energysaving #energysavings #energy #savings #scrilla #keepcraftalive #handyman #carpenter #contractorsofinsta #contractor #craftsmanship #craftsman #trades #tradesman #reno #renovation

What makes or breaks a job you ask? The caulking at the end. Doesn’t matter how good of a job you do, if your bead ain’t tight you’ll be laughed outta town! That is why I mastered the bead and the rest came with ease! #master #caulksmith #caulk #caulking #caulker #craftsmanship #craftsman #handyman #contractor #contractorsofinsta #carpenter #tilesetter #tightbead #keepcraftalive #trades #tradesman #finishingtouches #mastercraftsman #plumbing #plumber #electrician #electricon #electrical #hvac #gasfitter #tile #tilesetter #tiles
