BATHROOM REMODELING

when remodeling your bathroom, after demo a great product to use for the walls around your tub or shower surround is a product called hardy backer board. it is very durable and is a great sub wall for tile.  it replaces sheetrock normally called green board and lasts forever if done right.

AIR CONDITION TIPS

Write your post here. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR FILTERS IN YOUR AC UNIT ARE CLEAN AND CHANGE EVERY 2 MONTHS,  ALSO MAKE SURE THAT WATER IS ALWAYS COMING OUT OF THE DRIP PIPE FROM OUTSIDE.  THIS WILL KEEP YOUR AC RUNNING GOOD AND ALWAYS KEEP YOU COOL

PATIO DOOR CARE

PATIO DOOR CARE.  Since Spring is almost here now is the perfect time to maintain your patio doors. First thing is to clean the bottom tracks with soap and water. Never spray any WD40 or any other oil spray on tracks this will prevent and dirt from building up on them. Second thing is to turn both bottom screws on each side of the rails to move the rollers up and down to adjust the door correctly. then spray silicone spray on both rollers only and wipe off any excess on the tracks.  this should keep your doors sliding very smooth.(  note:  if your bottom tracks have dips in them, there are caps you can snap over the old tracks to make them smooth again)

FIRE DETECTORS

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CHECK YOUR FIRE DETECTORS ONCE A MONTH. A GREAT TIP IS TO BLOW OUT THE SENSOR INSIDE THE UNIT, BECAUSE DUST COLLECTS ON THE SENSOR CAUSING IT TO GO OFF FOR NO REASON.  BATTERY IS GOOD BUT THE SENSOR IS FILLED WITH DUST.  FIRE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES SO TREAT THEM WITH CARE

FREEZING PIPES DUE TO COLD WEATHER

Write your post here. ALWAYS LEAVE YOUR FAUCETS OPEN ENOUGH SO THAT THE WATER DRIPS OUT VERY SLOWLY TO PREVENT YOUR PIPES FROM FREEZING.  ONLY THE FAUCETS THAT ARE ON YOUR OUTSIDE WALLS.
