A couple of years ago I never used an interior designer for my projects, and to be honest my kids tried. I have started hiring interior designers now and let me tell you, they bring A LOT of value to the projects.
For a new project coming up, my wonderful designer chose this beautiful matte black faucet from Kraus USA👍 And I know that Precise Plumbing ALWAYS makes it right for our projects.

I get a lot of emails regarding windows, like how much should replacement windows cost and what type of windows to get and what should I look for in new windows?

I get the desire to do your own work around the house. With YouTube videos and other online tutorials, DIY projects are more accessible than ever. If you want to tackle some minor work, or cosmetic projects, I think that’s manageable for anyone who’s handy – but there are home improvement projects that MUST be handled by a professional.

I recommend cleaning your filters every 3 months, and put this on your seasonal maintenance checklist. You will find your filters are dirtier in the summer because there are more particles flying around outside.

The ERV we are showing has a few screws, but your unit may have a little clip instead to open it.
👉The best way to clean the filters is by sliding them out from their tracks in the unit and washing them in warm, soapy water in your sink.
👉Make sure the filters are clean and dry before sliding them back in. Follow the arrows when you are putting them back in. Fuzzy side faces the fans.
👉Don’t use a pressure washer to clean them, it can cause damage
👉 Always unplug the unit before your seasonal maintenance
👉The box is the actual air exchanger, and has a bit of a corrugated pattern. It takes the indoor air and allows it to pass through the other side. I recommend cleaning it at least once a year because there may be particles that managed to bypass the filters. Just very light water for washing.

Summertime is when most insects make their way indoors looking for cooler places to make their homes. Check the exterior of your home for these entry points for pests. #TipTuesday

Bathroom renovations, when done right are a good way to increase the value of your home. However, in my many years as a contractor, I’ve seen a lot of shoddy bathroom renovations.

As a potential buyer if you see a home with a lot of flashy upgrades that give you cause for concern, do a permit search on the property. You’ll be able to see if the homeowner got the proper permits needed for these renovations.

There are no detectors out there that will indicate the presence of bad smells. It’s up to your nose to tell you there’s a stinky smell in the house. It’s important to know what those odors are, and what you can do about them. https://t.co/bcxsQyZejM

You might be tempted to do your own electrical, but it's important to hire a licensed electrical contracting business to do the work. I've seen some pretty bad electrical & if done wrong your life could be put at risk @homeandsafety #ElectricalSafety https://t.co/ni6Zv4wX11
