Moving forward into the next phase of his business, Greg Wall has launched a new pool division. The COVID-19 crisis created a need for stay at home recreational activities and after being approached by several clients, Greg began researching options for pools and he found that fiberglass pools offered the best quality. He has since become a certified dealer for Leisure Pools, a family owned and operated company, offering high quality composite fiberglass pools.

He launched Patapsco Valley Pools in the Fall of 2020. “I had customers coming to me asking for referrals for pool installation and hardscaping…there was a definite void in the marketplace as many customers have complained to me about their masonry pool experience…so our pools are higher quality fiberglass and available in many shapes and sizes.” Greg remarks.

Wall to Wall Construction, Patapsco Valley Pools along with their partner, Groundshog Lawn & Landscape offer turn key projects to include fiberglass pools, state of the art filtration, lighting and water features along with patios, walls, decks, pavilions and outdoor kitchens, delivering a slice of paradise right in your own backyard.

Time to increase your living space?

In the past year, your home has been transformed from a place to come to, to a place to stay in. Work, school, and even vacations are all occurring under the same roof. The temporary is becoming permanent. So, is it time to consider an addition?

Now, you have an excellent opportunity to create exactly what you want. You already love your home, now create spaces that are comfortable and functional. Add an office space, school area, exercise room, or entertaining area.

Let’s start with office spaces. Anyone who works from home knows how easy it is to become distracted or how embarrassing it is to be in a meeting with a lot of background noise. In considering an office addition, look at places away from high traffic areas, like the kitchen or family room. Garages, porches, attics, and basements could be added to create a private work area.

Many parents understand that children need a school/study space that is quiet and yet supervised. Enlarging a kitchen or family room space can allow for an open-air designated school or homework space to enable parents to monitor activity and children to be productive.

The most common additions are ones that attach to the back of a house. A significant advantage of this type of addition is the ability to connect the home to the yard. These additions can create great spaces to use for relaxation, entertainment, or exercise.

Remember, additions come in all shapes and sizes. You can not only add the existing footprint of your home, but you can build up and out as well, keeping the original footprint but adding space at the same time. Options are available to create the functional spaces you need.

Wall to Wall Construction Celebrates 15 Years in Business

The name says it all! Wall to Wall Construction, LLC celebrates 15 years of business. As the company’s name implies, owner Greg Wall was the son of a contractor. His experience in construction came full circle in 2005 when he launched his own business; Wall to Wall Construction. He started with a small office, 1 truck and 2 employees and has grown the business to a comprehensive design-build firm with projects ranging from basic home improvements to deluxe custom built homes.

“I’ve been around construction and remodeling all my life…I learned a lot from my family…and being a CPA helped me be able to build the business. I wanted to focus on quality, I didn’t want to do average work. I wanted to be known for going the extra mile.” Greg explains.

Wall to Wall is a full service, turn-key, design-build firm specializing in both residential and commercial projects. Their portfolio includes single and multi-story additions, whole house remodeling, custom built homes, kitchens, baths, green remodeling, disabled and age in place renovations. In addition to their interior work, they provide services for roofing, siding, windows, decks, patios and hardscaping.

One Catonsville client remarks, “Wall to Wall exceeded our expectations. In a renovation project, it is all about the details…(they were) true professionals and meticulous…courteous and cooperative. They acted as though they were working in their own homes and cleaned up every day.”

Greg is a Catonsville native, attended Mount St. Joe High School and currently lives locally with his wife and four children. He is an active member of the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce and donates to many school causes, sports and arts programs. He can also be seen on the weekends playing drums with his local rock band.

Porticos

A portico adds dimension to a flat facade, highlights a home’s entry point, and improves a home’s overall curb appeal. Here’s one we recently completed!

Don’t Be an Unlicensed Contractor’s Next Victim!

If a home improvement ad, contract, or vehicle, says “Licensed and Bonded,” the individual may not be licensed and has no bond. Bonding companies typically do not issue performance bonds for residential jobs.

2017’s Hottest Remodeling Trends

I started my business almost 12 years ago and from the beginning said I was going to make a difference. I have hired talented individuals that care about the end product and our customers. I offer them a full benefit package and competitive pay giving them some of the same advantages in life as the clients we serve. However, the disadvantage to me is that my product and service can cost more than my competitors. The clients that value this philosophy benefit in the end with what we call “The Wall To Wall Experience”. 

This video sums up the challenges in our industry. The career opportunity has been minimized and as a result so has the quality of the service. We live in a society where we don’t value quality as we once did. We can buy things inexpensively and if it breaks just throw it out and buy another one probably for less. Things have become disposable and so has the way of home improvements. Your home is your biggest asset. My employees are my strongest asset. That is why we put those together to benefit our clients.

Please encourage individuals to explore the trades. There are good businesses out there offering real career opportunities in carpentry, plumbing, electric, Hvac and more!

“Wall To Wall Construction is a quality focused firm, dedicated to exceeding client expectations. A home can be a foundation for family and every day life, and when we enhance that experience it is truly rewarding.”

Extension Cord Safety Tips

Not enough cord for your lamp or radio to reach the nearest outlet? Just plowing through the junk drawer for an extension cord? This may not be a good idea. Extension cords can be very helpful in delivering power right where we need it. However, regardless of the gauge or rating of the cord, an extension cord is a temporary solution, and is not meant to be used as a long-term extension of your household’s electrical system.

Things to Check Before Using Your Fireplace

“Creating a yearly budget for home improvement and maintenance helps prevent overspending, and encourages you to put aside money for major replacements — such as new roofing or a kitchen appliance — that come up every few years.”

“Protect your home finances by knowing how much you’ll probably spend each year. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau says that average annual maintenance and home improvement expenditures are about $3,300 per household.”
