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).

A dripping tap is more than just annoying—it sends your money down the drain. If yours is leaking one drop per second, you are wasting over 2,500 gallons of water per year.
