We are renovating a house for a beautiful family with 3 kids. We discovered poorly installed tiles in all of their bathrooms (previous contractor made some big installation errors). Water damage behind the tiles as well.

You know me-take it down to the studs. We did a thorough inspection of structural issues in the house, so we can address them first. Then we give them some nice features to improve their home ownership experience.

I’m a big fan of in-floor heating and highly recommend that you install it in your next bathroom reno. In-floor heating technology has improved tremendously and can now be easily installed even into an existing bathroom plus, many systems incorporate smart technology.

The best thing about the Schluter-Systems North America DITRA-HEAT installation is that the entire area can easily become waterproof by just sealing the seams and floor/wall connections with KERDI-BAND and Schluter SET, ALL-SET, FAST-SET or an unmodified thin-set mortar. The result is a waterproof installation that will not suffer damage in the event of an unexpected water leak.

These before and after photos are from a renovation project in Edmonton, by Vicky's Homes This wasn't about giving the homeowner shiny new countertops or a new fireplace. This was about using the RIGHT products and the best trades to give these homeowners a home that will last.
Bathroom and kitchen renovations are the most popular home improvement projects. I just renovated my own bathroom, and I've been meaning to work on my kitchen (for 15 years now!). A contractor never gets to work on their own home 😂
When you are renovating your home, taking the time to understand what really is going in with the major systems of your home. It means staying away from “lipstick and mascara” fixes that are covering up major issues with the house.

I love working with builders and renovators across North America who are committed to RENOVATING IT RIGHT. Vicky and team do it right 👍 and I am thrilled that they are the Builder of the Year (Small Volume) by the @chba 🎉

For those who are renovating to age in place or remodeling for people with disabilities, I recommend you focus on taking care of the basic needs first – eating, sleeping, and bathing comfortably.

Building for life may seem like a big job – and it is – but if you break it down into smaller projects you can take it one step at a time. I have renovated a few handicap accessible homes in my career.

Being able to navigate your home could be a challenge as you age or are dealing with disabilities- the idea is to mitigate that as much as possible starting now. Here are some tips on building a wheelchair friendly house.

How can you stay cool without relying on A/C? Switch your overhead fans to run counter-clockwise to push any cool air down. It won't make the room any colder (so you can turn it off when you leave), but it will make you feel more comfortable while you use the room. #TipTuesday

When renovating a bathroom, the key is to make it watertight! I always recommend you pick products that create a continuous layer of moisture protection. A high-quality waterproof system below your tiles is also a must if you want your renovation to last. @schluterNA

Installing a window is not a DIY job. No matter how good the window is that you buy—if it’s not installed properly it’s not worth much.
