About three years ago, I applied for a home improvement loan and had the master bathroom in our house completely updated.  I should not have hired a general contractor instead of a licensed plumbing professional.  Although the general contractor was knowledgeable about  drywall, flooring, and replacing the window, he knew hardly anything about the needs of a plumbing system.  A bathroom serves multiple purposes, has quite a few moving parts, and manages a heavy workload.  A lot of water frequently flows through the faucets, pipes, and drains.  The surfaces of fixtures are constantly exposed to moisture, and there is so many things that can become a problem.  Because the general contractor was not familiar with the durability of materials, he recommended a sink, faucet, shower stall, shower head, and tiles that were unable hold up to wear and tear, and soon became corroded, stained, and unattractive.  Since he was not proficient in the proper way to install the shower stall, it leaked and soon compromised the integrity of the floor.  The toilet didn’t flush as it should, and the drains were very slow moving, which left soap scum behind.  In less than a year, I had a giant, ugly mess on my hands.  I then turned to a licensed plumber for help.  He basically started over and renovated the bathroom.  I once again took out a loan to cover the expense of a sink, vanity, faucets, toilet, flooring, and shower stall.  I once again dealt with disruption and inconvenience.  I am just relieved that the bathroom remodeling project is complete.   I have learned to always contact a licensed plumber for anything to do with our plumbing system.leaking pipe

Four years ago, I got a home improvement loan so that the master bathroom in my house could be renovated.  I mistakenly hired a general contractor rather than a licensed plumber.  While the contractor was knowledgeable about putting up drywall, laying down a floor, and replacing the window, he was not up to date  with the requirements of a plumbing system.  A bathroom carries a big workload, has many uses, and features a lot of moving parts.  There’s constant water flow through the faucets, pipes, and down the drains.  The surfaces are constantly getting wet, and there is numerous possibilities for malfunctions.  The  general contractor was not aware of  the quality of the materials, and so he chose a sink, faucet, shower stall, shower head, and floors tiles that were unable weather the wear and tear, and soon became corroded, stained, as well as unattractive.  Since he was not knowledgeable in the proper upgrade of the shower stall, I ended up with leaks that impacted the integrity of the floor.  The toilet didn’t flush like it should,  the drains were really slow moving.  In the span of a year, my bathroom was a giant, ugly disaster.  I then had to hire a licensed plumber to basically begin the project again and  renovate my bathroom.  I needed to borrow more money to cover the cost of a brand new sink, vanity, faucets, toilet, flooring, as well as shower stall.  I once again had to put up with my house getting torn apart and no access to the master bathroom.  I am just relieved that I have finally completed my bathroom remodeling project.  From now on, I will make certain to contact a licensed plumber for all of my plumbing projects.

Two years ago, I took out a home improvement loan from the bank in order to have the master bathroom in our home completely renovated.  I made the error of hiring a general contractor instead of a professional plumber.  While the building contractor was knowledgeable about putting up drywall, installing a floor, and replacing the window, he knew  little about the mechanics of a plumbing system.  A bathroom serves a lot of demands, has numerous appliances, and supports a heavy workload.  A great deal of water flows through the faucets, pipes, and drains.  The surfaces are frequently exposed to moisture, and there is so many things that can malfunction.  Because the building contractor was not proficient with the quality of materials, he installed a sink, faucet, shower stall, shower head, and tiles that were of lower quality and could not withstand wear and tear.  The fixtures quickly became corroded, stained, and unappealing.  Since he was not experienced in the familiar upgrade of the shower stall, I ended up with small leaks that compromised ruined the floor.  The toilet didn’t flush very well, and the drains were always plugged.  Within eight months, our new bathroom was a giant, ugly mess.  I then hired a licensed plumber to basically start over and renovate all over again.  I had to take out a second loan to spend cover the cost of  a brand new sink, vanity, faucets, toilet, flooring, and shower stall.  I once again endures a  house that was all torn apart and going without use of the master washroom.  I am just happy  that our bathroom remodeling project is finally done.  From now on, I will contact a professional plumber for anything to do with our plumbing system.plumbing system

Two years ago, I took out a home improvement loan to have the master bathroom in my house renovated.  I made the mistake of working with a general company instead of a licensed plumber.  While the general company was fine with putting up drywall, installing a floor, and replacing the window, he knew hardly anything about the requirements of a plumbing system.  A bathroom meets a lot of demands, has numerous appliances, and withstands a heavy workload.  A great deal of water flows through the faucets, pipes, and drains.  The surfaces are exposed to moisture day in and day out.  In the end, there are numerous things that can go wrong.  Because the general contractor was not well versed with the quality of materials, he installed a sink, faucet, shower stall, shower head, and tiles of lower quality.  The surfaces were unable withstand wear and tear, and became corroded, stained, and ugly.  Since he was not experienced in the proper installation of the shower stall, I ended up with minor leaks that compromised the integrity of the floor.  The toilet didn’t flush very well, and the drains were constantly plugged.  In less than a year, my bathroom was an ugly disaster.  I ended up contacting a licensed plumber to completely start over and renovate my bathroom.  I had to borrow more money to cover the cost of  a brand new sink, vanity, faucets, toilet, flooring, and shower stall.  I once again had to deal with my house being torn apart and got without the master bathroom.  I am relieved that my bathroom remodeling project is finally done.  From now on, I will always rely on a licensed plumber for anything to do with my plumbing system.

After what my friend did to me, she’s lucky if I ever talk to her again. It was a very simple task, and I had asked her several weeks ahead of time. So the fact she was so late that night really made me angry. It was just that, at the time I was too cold to do anything about it. I was very close to getting frostbite that night, despite what my doctor might tell you. I had been riding on a bus cross country, and all I needed was a ride home. This bus had no heating system in it, by the way. So the sixteen hours I spent on the bus the big fellow next to me was the only space heater. We finally get to the bus station, and I’m looking forward to a fireplace, or at least standing in front of a big heating vent. But nope, it was too late at night and the place was closed — I could see that giant fireplace, but was trapped out in the cold. My friend arrived two hour late, and all I wanted was to crawl inside the air vent of her car heater. My teeth were chattering too badly for me to yell at her so I turned down the thermostat. I went right home, cranked my HVAC furnace to the highest heat, and vowed never to rely on her again. I figured after a few hours basking in central heating I would be ready to yell at her. But the radiant heat just made me relaxed, and never want to go out in the cold again. That heating system saved our friendship that night.

I own a home that is quite nice. It’s nothing to brag about, but my family likes  it.  It  handles all of our needs. However, not long ago, we thought we were dealing with an infestation of rodents in the walls and ceilings.  This was the first time we’d ever faced anything like that, but we ,decided to tackle this complication head.  We wanted to rid our home of these pests. My wife bought a bunch of traps, because we have small children.  We did not want to expose them to toxic poisons intended for the rodents. But that didn’t accomplish anything because we didn’t catch a single mouse. We then realized that the sounds we were hearing were coming from  the ductwork. When I inspected the air vents I did not see any signs of the mice. There was no doubt about the tapping noises in the heating and cooling ducts.  It sounded like lots of little feet were moving around. I took a quick look at the air filters.  I wanted to see if they had been chewed but they looked just fine. After nearly a month, I hadn’t caught a mouse in the traps, and it seemed that the rodents had gotten inside the Heating plus Air Conditioning system. I felt  it necessary to call the local HVAC company.  I set up an appointment. A technician was sent out and gave our entire system a careful inspection.  The specialist came back with the news that there was not a rat or mouse in our HVAC system. That was good to hear, but the bad news was that the sounds indicated a problem with the air ducts.  We were going to need some sections of the duct work replaced and the rest of it cleaned and sealed.

My family home is quite nice. It’s nothing extravagant or huge, but it’s the ideal home for all of our needs. Unfortunately, we recently thought we had an infestation of mice in the walls.  Up until that point, we had never had a problem with rodents.  My wife and I decided to tackle this concern immediately.  We hoped to get our home free of dirty pests. First I bought traps. Since we have kids, we decided to avoid setting out toxic poisons for the rodents. But the traps didn’t accomplish anything, and we started to notice more and more sounds in the air ducts. When I inspected the air vents,I could not see any sign of the mice. The tapping noises in the heating and cooling ducts, however, were getting much worse.  We constantly heard something moving around in there. I replaced all the air filters, and looked to see if they had been chewed.  Everything looked okay. After a couple weeks,  I hadn’t caught a single mouse  in the traps, and I suspected that the rodents had infiltrated the HVAC system. I felt I had to call the local HVAC contractor for an appointment. A licensed technician was sent out and provided our entire system a careful inspection.  He came back with the news that there were no rodents occupying our heating and air conditioning system. We were happy to hear it, but the bad news was that the sounds we heard were signs that the HVAC equipment was malfunctioning. We needed  a major repair,, including air duct sealing, which was a much larger issue than a few mice.

When my son was invited to a roller skating party, I was excited for him. Since he is just six year old, I didn’t want to leave him at the rink along.  It had been ten years since my last time in a roller skating rink, but as long as I didn’t break anything, it could be fun.  There were some snowflakes, and the temperature was dropping close to zero when we left home. I honestly thought that the skating rink would be really warm, so I let my son wear something light.  We got to the party around ten AM and were impressed by the brightly colored decoration.  I couldn’t wait to see the joy on my child’s face as he made his first round on skates, so I quickly unbuttoned his jacket.  I could feel the air coming from the vents, and buttoned him back up.  I felt the drafty air coming out of the vents, and figured it was just because the furnace wasn’t warmed up yet.  After twenty minutes, it was still cold, and I inquired about it.  The waitress explained that so many kids get really hot when they are skating, so instead of running the heaters, they run the air conditioners all year.  I snorted, knowing that they were actually trying to save money on heating and this was their excuse.  My son had to wear his jacket the entire time he was there, and I was glad that I had found them before we left.  I don’t think anyone knows how glad I was to get home to the heat of our house.  That is, unless you were one of those parents who a kid huddled in a corner with a bunch of other kids.

The house I own is quite nice. It’s nothing overly fancy.  It’s a enjoyable and suits my needs. At least it seemed to, until we believed we had an infestation of rodents in the walls! Up until that point, we had no problem with pests. We decided to tackle this problem forcefully. First my husband tried traps.  We have youngsters and did not want  to expose them to toxic poisons. But that didn’t work, and we caught not a single mouse or rat. We heard sounds in the air ducts that grew gradually louder. When I peered through the air vents I could not see anything.  We still heard non stop tapping noises in the heating and cooling ducts which sounded like mice moving around. I checked all the air filters to see if anything had been chewed but they looked okay. After another week, we  hadn’t caught anything in the traps.  We believed that the rodents had gotten inside the Heating and A/C system. At that point, I felt I had to call the local HVAC professional and set up an appointment for service.  The HVAC technician inspected my entire system.  He came back and informed us that there were no rats in my HVAC system. That was good news.  Unfortunately, the bad news was that the sounds were caused by my gas furnace malfunctioning. We needed some extensive repairs on the gas furnace, as well as cleaning and sealing of the duct system. It turned into a huge expense and disruption.
