When my wife decided she wanted to redo our bathroom, I was very happy about it. For a while, I had been wanting to have a separate shower from the bathtub because of my knees. I have arthritis, and it was just hard stepping over and into the tub when my knees would act up. I wanted to be able to just walk into the shower, so we started looking for a shower enclosure installer in NJ. Her brother was able to help with a lot of the work because he is in construction, but he had never put in a shower before.
He suggested that he help with the other remodeling ideas my wife had, and let a professional put in the shower stall for us. We had plenty of room in the bathroom to do this, and my brother in law drew out a floor plan that my wife absolutely loved. The only thing I cared about, to be honest, was getting a nice shower enclosure put in. My brother in law was able to give me the website address of a company that he said was well regarded, so I went to see what they have to offer.
Just as I only cared about the shower, my wife was happy to do everything else and let me focus on this one aspect of our new bathroom. I really liked the enclosures that had a bench inside too along with shelves that were built into the wall. For the days where my arthritis was really bad, I would be able to use the built in bench. The shelves would help to keep everything nice and organized in the shower. My wife loves our new bathroom, and it is actually quite funny because she uses the shower just as much as I do now!

I really liked what I saw when I went to a friend’s new home. She told me that the only thing she had changed was the window treatments, and that is one of the things that I liked the best. She told me that she had bought them from Orange County Shutters, a local company, and I knew that I was going to give them a look as well. That is the first time that I had ever been in someone’s home and wanted to duplicate the same look for my own, so that should explain just how nice these shutters are.
I had nice mini blinds in my own house at the time, but they paled in comparison to the shutters she had. The difference is not even explainable in nice terms. Continue reading →
There are a whole lot of moving pieces to this problem and I have been trying to look at it methodically. We have been looking for an affordable house and it has been hard to find what we want, but we have realized that there are sometimes homes which could be what we want, but only after we invest a good bit of time and money. We found this one place with a perfect location, but a lot of issues. For example we have gotten a Sacramento hvac contractor to come by and determine what we should do about the heat pump. It seems obvious that trying to fix it is probably not a good idea. Continue reading →
Many people take their garage door for granted, using it as the sole entrance to their home and expecting it to work every time. People get so used to the door opening every time they push the button that they stop carrying the keys to their house with them, choosing instead to rely on the garage door as the only way they can get in. The issues happen that time when you push the button and the door doesn’t go up, due to one of the many moving parts of the lifter mechanism wearing out. You came home after a long day and pushed the button and nothing happens. You check the batteries and they are fine. If something has gone wrong with the mechanics of the lifter mechanism, there is no way to lift the door from the outside. Even if there is a lock on the door itself, you would still need to disengage the chain in order to lift it. So now you are sitting outside with no way into your home. The lesson to be learned is to always have a spare key to the house somewhere where you can access it in this type of situation.
The other issue is that once you are in your home and have released the chain so that you can operate the door manually, now you cannot lock it. Most doors equipped with lifters do not have locks installed on them, and when the mechanisms are not working the lock is not working either. While you can still easily lock your interior door, the whole time that the lifter mechanism is broken everything in your garage is at risk of being stolen. Even worse is that anyone who opens the door and closes it behind them can work on your interior door without being seen. This is a big problem that can only be fixed by either keeping the door chain engaged and leaving your house through the front door, while parking in the driveway, or getting the door fixed as soon as possible. Let’s face it, these are moving parts and they wear out. There is a plastic sprocket turning a tight chain to lift a heavy door. Anything under that kind of stress is going to break sooner or later, so isn’t it far better to be prepared before it happens than learning a lesson after it does?
One of the best things you can do is have a qualified garage door repair person come out to look over your door periodically. They can look for signs of wear and replace anything that needs to be replaced before it breaks. If you wait until after it has broken you are going to be very inconvenienced and actually in danger until the repair happens. A little periodic maintenance can avoid these types of situations, and save you a lot of grief.
