DIY Projects With Dad For Father’s Day

We’d like to wish all of the Dads (and male role models) out there a Happy Father’s Day. If you are looking for a unique gift, consider a DIY project you can complete together. Chances are, there are a few things he would like to tackle around his house and an extra set of hands will be appreciated. Plus, he likely would rather have the bonding time with you than a gift card to a restaurant.

Projects can include adding flooring that is easier to keep clean like vinyl flooring by Congoleum, adding Wall Guard Car Door Cushion Protection, or installing a Diamond Plate Parking Spot to help keep his garage organized.

Likewise, if Dad loves working with his hands in a shop, help him get everything organized by adding pegboards to the walls and installing storage cabinets in his craft space. This will help him keep his tools safe and in place, so he can enjoy his DIY projects more year round.

Affordable and Long Lasting Tile

Spring is in the air, and you may be writing out a list of repair projects to tackle. Installing, repairing and restoring tile is a great project because of its long lasting rewards. Tile and stone are durable surfaces that are perfect for any space — commercial or residential. Tile and stone are also easy to clean and maintain with the right products, but don’t worry, Koffler Sales has you covered.

Tile Floors Maintenance and Repair

Tile and Stone Primer

Before laying tile, you need to prime your surface for application. A good primer, like Mapei Eco Prim Grip Primer, will make your surface even for tile installation as well as improve adhesion (so it lasts). A unique feature of Mapei Eco Prim Grip Primer is that you can lay tile over tile, which will save you money and time when you’re ready for an update.

Tile Grout

Mixing grout can be a pain, but there are pre-mixed grouts on the market that can save you time and frustration. Koffler Sales offers Mapei Flexcolor CQ Grout that is ready-to-use and available in several designer colors. This pre-mixed grout remains ready-to-use for up to a year after opening (with proper storage), so it is perfect for property maintenance companies who may have several tile projects throughout the year. Who doesn’t hate waste?

Koffler Tip: For big design on a small budget, consider pairing colorful pre-mixed grout with standard white tile. 

Tile, Stone and Grout Sealer

Bringing home a new puppy is exciting, but it also can be challenging for pet owners. As babies, they don’t know the rules of the house yet and once they start teething — look out!

Corner-Protectors-For-Glass-imgOne Koffler customer recently left a product review for our Corner Guards. Check out his ingenious hack to stop his dogs from damaging the window sills:

Having just had all the trim in our house professionally painted, I wanted to protect our window sills where our two dogs put their feet to bark at the birds and squirrels. In our town I could not find the 2 inch and 2/1 inch corner guard I purchased from Koffler Sales Company. The product was shipped on time, the clear plastic guards were well protected with a plastic film. We love our dogs, but after spending $4200 to repaint, I wanted to protect the bottom window sills. The product exceeded my expectations in what we wanted to accomplish. Great product!!
