Bathroom Renovation and Water Treatment

The renovation of the bathroom is one of the most demanding and complex works when it comes to home adaptation. In today’s fast and stressful life, the room which prior function was providing basic hygienic conditions, is partially taking the features of the living room and bedroom, and is transforming into an intimate zone that has to be functional and well designed, but also must ensure all the prerequisites for rest and relaxation.

It’s pretty tricky to renovate only one part of the bathroom, except when it comes to replacement of the furniture. Any other repair requires certain works, like demolition or drilling the walls, so with the adaptation, it is easier to make a whole renovation. The torn pipe, for example, demands lifting or separation of the plates. Changing of the bathtub also requires complex construction work, which all eventually opens up the opportunity for the whole renovation. If the change of the position of the installation is required, these works are first in line. Sanitation schedule may change but in certain conditions. For example, the significant distance between the elements and vertical drain can cause slow water runoff and frequent clogging.

The bathroom lighting is crucial and requires a lot of planning, especially when it comes to a small bathroom or the one with no windows. It is best to solve it with different lighting: above, on or next to the mirror, embedded in the ceiling, etc. Setting the lighting next to the mirror provides the best light and minimizes shadows. It is important to have general lighting that illuminates the entire space, but also the discreet lighting that creates pleasant atmosphere during the bath time.

It is also necessary to think of the solutions for heating, as well as the ventilation. In most bathrooms, the heating is solved with a radiator in the form of a ladder, which is a highly functional solution, but in recent years, the under floor heating is becoming more and more popular. When it comes to ventilation, if there is no natural one, it is necessary to resolve it with a fan, which will draw moist air from the room.

One of the things to especially consider when renovating the bathroom is the whole house water filter that is installed on the main water line. In its initial phase, sediment pre-filter stops the unnecessary sediments from entering water pipes and is improving the taste and clarity of your water. After passing the first filter, the water goes through an activated carbon filter and prevents the chlorine and heavy metals from spreading in the water pipes. It also keeps the pipes from bacteria, algae, and other dirt. For the most people, safety and cleanness of water are the biggest concern. With the whole house water filter systems, they can be sure it won’t be a problem, and that every faucet in their home will deliver pure and healthy water.

When you have solved the fundamental architectural barriers, at least in theory, it is time to select the floor and wall coverings. These materials should be waterproof and easy to maintain. Classical solution is, of course, the ceramic tiles. A lot of stores also offer ceramic tiles that mimic stone and wood. The standard solutions are changing due to new user needs and provide big progress regarding functionality and comfort.

Remember, a successful adaptation is the result of proper preparation and quality performance.

Helpful Home Improvement Tips: 5 Commonly Overlooked Questions to Ask Your Contactor

Helpful Home Improvement Tips: 5 Commonly Overlooked Questions to Ask Your Contactor

These 5 questions are commonly overlooked when hiring a contractor.

http://safepact.com

———————–
Transcript:

Hey everyone. Tyler here for another Safepact.com video question of the day where I take some of the most commonly asked questions about home improvement and contractors and I answer them for you right here on youtube, and today I’m going to list some things that you probably didn’t think to ask your contractor before hiring him.

We all have a list of questions that we are going to ask our contractor. These probably have to do with licensing, insurance, bank information and references; but what about those under the radar questions that most people don’t think to ask? I have a list here of some of these questions that can really help determine who you choose as the contractor for you.

Is the price you’ve given me an estimate or a fixed cost? One of the things you really should do is shop around for a contractor and get some bids on the project. A lot of these contractors will quote you a price but leave out whether this cost is fixed or just an estimate. You would assume that it’s an estimate, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but if you get three numbers and one of them is a fixed cost it may help you determine who to hire.

Can you itemize your costs for me? If your contractor can break down the price you are paying him into each individual item or job then it really helps you understand why your project costs the price he quoted you. If you get multiple contractor to do this for you you can use it as a way to try and negotiate a cost with your contractor…but be careful on that one cuz a lot of contractors don’t like negotiation and most don’t even do it at al.

Where do you get your materials? A lot of contractors have exclusive deals with local lumberyards or paint shops, and while this is good for the shop and your contractor it might not be good for your wallet. Make sure that you know where your contractor is getting his materials from so that you know if he is buying locally, from a warehouse, or just from a local Home Depot. You should never be asked to supply the materials for the job, but if you have a certain place that you like or if you know of a place that’s cheap you are well within your rights to do that.

Do you do the work yourself? A lot of people use the word contractor and handyman interchangeably when there is, in fact, a difference. If your contractor isn’t going to be the one doing the work, if he just hires a handyman to do it, then you can probably cut out the middleman and just go straight to the handyman and hire him yourself. This will end up saving you time and money.

Do you use Safepact.com to ensure my money is safe and secure? Ok this really isn’t one of the questions to ask, but it never hurts to have an extra precaution against scam artists does it?

If you have any other questions that you ask that you think would be good to add to my second list of questions, be sure to tell me! Either here on youtube or on facebook. Like us while you’re at it too. For Safepact.com this has been Tyler….build safe out there.

5 Home Improvement Tips for February | YoChicago Realtor Sonia

5 Home Improvement Tips for February | YoChicago Realtor Sonia

5 Tips for Home Improvement just like we maintain our health it is important to also keep up with our home. Even if you are not ready to sell it’s super important to keep your home from falling apart.

5 Home Improvement Tips for February

Thanks for joining on this video, I want to give you the top 5 tips for home care:

1. Downspouts
Make sure that your downspouts on the outside that’s attached to the gutters are away from your home and away from the foundation. Otherwise, they’re going to start leaking, the water will start dripping and you will have seepage into your basement. So keep it clear and free of debris.

2. Rotted Wood
Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around your windows because sometimes that does get rotten over time, especially if you’re a long time home owner. Make sure that that’s not rotted wood.

3. Clean Flue
If you have a chimney, make sure your flue is clean even though you might not be ready to sell or anything. The first thing that most home inspectors with their home buyers will check is that flue is clean and it’s working properly.

4. Cracks
If you have any cracks in the basement and the foundation of your home over time as gravity starts pulling and rotation of the earth, you start to get cracks in the foundation of your home. You’ll see it more when you have an unfinished basement but you’ll want to get a concrete crack filler or silicon filler and start filling that in to keep your home in tip top shape.

5. Loose Gutters
If you have any loose or leaky gutters, make sure that you maintain those as well especially as spring time starts coming in and all that rain that you get in April and May.
These are the top tips for February. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below or subscribe. Thanks!

Home Improvement Tips: Staying Within your Budget

There are several different ways you can devise a budget. First, make sure that you do your homework so you know the size and scope of the project you want completed. If you dive right into something without knowing the estimated cost, such as a kitchen remodel, you could be shocked at the end result.
