Have you ever had your electrical inspected? A T&T or test and trouble shoot will have a licensed electrical contractor take a look at your setup and test every plug and connection to check whether it's still in good shape.

I recommend having this done every couple of years - or while you're doing a renovation. Make sure you choose a LICENSED electrical contractor.

In this bathroom reno we made sure the homeowners got their own little spa oasis. A niche provides room for storage, and a shower bench is just an awesome experience for a relaxing steam shower. Love the window bringing in some sun. ☀️
For a shower niche you can get pretty creative with the size and style. We are putting in a different patterned tile in the niche for contrast. You can buy prefabricated shower niches or build them custom.
The orange tape you are seeing is KERDI-BAND- a waterproofing strip to seal butt joints and floor/wall connections 👍

An energy audit assesses how much energy your home consumes and helps you find solutions to make your home more efficient. It goes a long way to showing you specific trouble spots in your home that are energy sinks that if corrected, can lead to some monthly savings.

I really do recommend hiring a professional to do a full assessment of your home. Depending on the size of your home, it will likely cost you along the lines of $300-500, but they’ll be able to paint a much bigger picture of your home’s efficiency (or lack of it).

Energy Star rated washers use half the water and energy per load of older models. If you’re in the market for new washing machine, the frontload washing systems have a much larger capacity and save significantly on water and energy.

If there is a musty smell in your home but you can’t see any stains, you may have mold growing behind your walls. In that case, you’ll need to hire a professional home inspector who uses thermal imaging to see what’s going on behind those walls.

We’re spending more time at home (even me!), so you start paying attention to the small repair jobs that have been left idle for too long. Or your needs out of your home have likely changed. You may have needed to convert a room into a home office or gym. https://t.co/OW0Gag653e

I came across one bad renovation where another contractor had cut out three triple 2-by-10s to run some new ducting to an addition. I'm surprised the house didn't fall down!
