March 15, 2020 AsktheBuilder Newsletter
Are you a new subscriber? Welcome and FAIR WARNING: A tsunami of home improvement tips is about to wash over you.
You may have already been on the beach here with me, lying on the warm sand and hydrating with your liquid of choice, when small waves become big waves. You’ve got enough sense to know it’s now time to seek higher ground. “Run! Hurry, the BIG wave is coming!”
Early this past Sunday, you may have switched to Daylight Savings Daze and still may be suffering. Don’t you just hate to make the switch?
This time change heralds but one thing: It’s time to CLEAN THINGS.
The official start to spring is Friday, March 20th. Yes, the vernal equinox is almost upon us. Just look at what my Weather Underground app said two days ago.
We’re just 12 minutes away from having 12 hours of daylight. This spring I’ve got a monster list of things that need to be cleaned. How about you? I’ll be using Stain Solver on my deck, dock, siding and patio, but not my windows.
When I tackle the windows here at the AsktheBuilder.com world headquarters, I’ll be cleaning them like a pro. What would you say if I told you there’s a good chance you’re cleaning your windows the WRONG way? Don’t be offended, maintain an open mind here.
Years ago, I interviewed the presidents of the two largest window washing companies in the USA. I wanted to see how their employees clean the windows of skyscrapers while dangling in the air, hundreds of feet above the ground.

The COVID-19 Virus and You
On Wednesday, I shared very briefly that I was going to add to the fray about the wretched COVID-19 virus. I have no intention of giving you any medical advice. I’m not a doctor nor do I play one on TV or in my videos. I do, however, impersonate a pirate pretty well!
As I was fixing breakfast this past Wednesday, I thought about you. I thought about how fearful you might be. You may need work done at your home, and you’re wondering if it’s a good idea to have unknown workers come to your house.
You’ve got three simple choices as I see it:
- Postpone the work and not have strangers come to your home.
- Have strangers come and roll the dice that they’re not infected.
- Use my advice and tips and tackle some smaller jobs yourself saving LOTS of MONEY in the meantime. You can also have me call you on the phone to help. See below.
I have a bunch of free guides on my website for you. Here are a few. I found them by just typing “quick start guide” into the search engine at the website:
I’ve also have some simple and inexpensive DIY guides at my shopping cart for some basic projects. CLICK or TAP HERE to see them.
I’ve decided to create a SPECIAL DEAL for you if you need over-the-phone advice during this uncertain time. Let’s say you need some work done and you don’t know if it can wait or you just need help to get started.

Do It Right, Not Over!
P.S. Do you believe in God? A very dear life-long friend of mine needs your prayers today, tonight, and tomorrow (March 16th). I’d be forever in your debt if you could say a few prayers that she has a great day on March 16th. Thank you very much if you’ll do this for her.
