How much might it cost to install and finish approximately 400 sq.ft. of hardwood flooring? I have already purchased the actually flooring material, which is unfinished oak 2" wide boards. Thanks.
We had a professional contractor remodel our home 5 years a go. At the time, we had a sunken living room which the contractor filled with concrete in order to bring it to the same level as the rest of the house. We had ceramic tile laid on top of the concrete. Over the years, the grout line has separated where the original concrete meets the new concrete. I have removed the cracked grout line but am not sure what to do to prevent any new grout from cracking in the future. Someone suggested mixing cement grout with caulk. The grout lines are only 1/8". Thanks for your help.
What cleaner and restorer can I use on my Corian countertop? What are your recommendations? Thank you.
We're planning some pretty extensive kitchen remodeling, and friends suggest we use a kitchen designer. I'm not sure if most designers get paid an hourly fee, or if they make their money from markups on the kitchen remodeling components that they help us purchase. Please enlighten us!
It looks as if we could replace our side-by-side washer and dryer with a stacking set, and then in the same space put in a one-piece fiberglass shower beside the new appliances. We have a cement floor. Can the plumbing challenges be overcome?
We're doing a home addition to gain a laundry room in Orlando. I'm worried about moisture and plan on putting in a decent backdraft damper. How much should I budget for the duct work and damper unit? Are booster exhaust fans really necessary to make sure the damper opens properly?
I'm remodeling a home and installing new storm windows. What features should I consider? I live in Orlando, which is known for heat, humidity, and the occasional windy storm.
My house is badly in need of exterior paint. I have never tackled this task, and need to know what is involved. What is the best house paint to use, what special tools do I need, and what is the sequence of events in painting the house?
