Remodeling a Bathroom on a Do-It Yourself Basis

Many people these days are doing remodeling projects on a do-it yourself basis, and the bathroom is no exception.

If you are reasonably handy, you can probably do much of the remodeling yourself. It is wise to have the good sense to know your limitations. Some parts of the task may not be good to tackle on a do-it-yourself basis and you may need to hire a professional for these parts of your project.

You first of all need a remodeling plan. Begin by determining how extensive a bathroom remodel you are going to do. Will it be only a partial remodel, or does it need to be torn out and completely redone? Money can be saved by doing demolition and much of the dirty work as a do-it-yourself task.

Make a list of what needs to be replaced. List all fixtures such as toilet, shower or bathtub, vanity, lighting, fans, flooring etc. Assess your wiring and plumbing.

If plumbing is in good condition and new fixtures will simply replace old ones in the same place, you may be able to do most or all of it yourself.

Next look at your wiring. Do you need more outlets and lighting than is currently in your bathroom? An older bathroom may require updating wiring and adding safety features. This may be the place you need to allot some of your budget to calling in a professional rather than trying to do-it-yourself

Once you have listed what you need, done some extensive comparison shopping and determined costs and a budget it is time to expand your remodeling plan. If you have not remodeled an entire room before this is a practical step that may save time and aggravation later on, not to mention money.

List elements of your do-it-yourself remodeling project

1. bathroom shower installation
2. shower head installation
3. putting bathroom vanity in place
4. install vanity sink
5. vanity faucet installation
6. install vanity lighting
7. install bathroom ventilating fan
8. install new bathroom flooring

This is an example list. Yours will vary depending on your bathroom remodel. List each element. Then for each of these projects, list the steps needed to complete, and the supplies and tools you will need.

Also carefully review each of these projects and how they relate to the others. Set up a logical order so that you don’t have to backtrack or do things over.

This may seem silly, but it could save you time rather than having to do something a second time. Sometimes getting things in the wrong order can increase the expense and time it takes to get finished.

And above all, check with your local building department for local codes and get the necessary permits.

Trade Show Promotion, Technology and the Tomato Story

It’s a story you may have read. Perhaps it’s an urban-legend type of story, but it rings true. It came to me via a discussion list from the Philippines, but I suspect it has done a complete world tour, and you may have seen it. It has little to do with trade shows per say, but has lots to do with using technology in trade show promotion.


An unemployed man goes to try for a job with Microsoft as a janitor. The manager there arranges for an aptitude test. After the test, the manager says, “You will be hired at a salary of $ 30 per day. Let me have your e-mail address so I can send you a form to complete and tell you where to report for work each day.”

Taken aback, the unemployed man states that he is neither in possession of a computer nor of an e-mail address.

To this the MS manager replies, “Well, then, that means that you virtually don’t exist and therefore cannot expect to be employed.”

Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and only having $ 10 left, he decides to buy a 10 lb box of tomatoes at the supermarket. In less than 2 hours, he sells the tomatoes singly at 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with $ 100. And thus it dawns on the man that he could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes. Eventually he multiplies his profits many fold in quite a short time.

Not long thereafter, he acquires a cart to transport several dozen boxes of tomatoes, only to have to trade it in again shortly afterwards on a pick-up truck. By the end of the second year, he is the owner of a fleet of pick-up trucks and manages a staff of a hundred formerly unemployed people, all selling tomatoes. Considering the future of his family, he decides to buy some life insurance.

Calling an insurance agent, he picks an insurance policy to fit his new circumstances. At the end of the telephone conversation, the agent asks for his e-mail address in order that he might forward the documentation.

When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the agent is stunned. “What, you don’t even have e-mail? How on earth have you managed to amass such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where you would have been by now, if you had been connected from the very start!”

After a moment’s silence, the millionaire replied – “I would have been a janitor at Microsoft!”

Morals of the story:

* The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce do not need to rule your life.

* If you don’t have e-mail, but work hard … you can still become a millionaire.

* Seeing that you got this story via e-mail, you’re probably closer to becoming a janitor than you are to becoming a millionaire.

All the morals are true. In The Millionaire Next Door and other books on workingman wealth, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley says that such wealth may be hidden to your eye, unavailable because it does not run with a visible crowd, shirks promotion, and is quiet in its generosity.

What does this have to do with trade shows? Actually a lot, when you have a very tech-oriented promotion that butts up against non- technology-oriented people who can buy.

Each week, I receive information about events that are in traditional industries, held in traditional cities, attended by traditional folks – yet the majority of promotion is electronic. Often this electronic promotion is the high-end kind requiring, not only a computer and e-mail but also, big bandwidth and the patience to appreciate retro-techno effects. It’s sort of like the kids got into cookie jar and overdosed on sugar.

Here are TIPS to remember when planning E-Promotion:

Not Everybody is Online. What, you say? Impossible. Actually very possible, and there are a couple of major reasons to consider.

* They’re Not Corporate. Large corporate entities always buy first and then upgrade to the newest in new technologies. Small businesses and frugal entrepreneurs know that paper-and-pencil work just as well. Though slower, manual dexterity and a personal history of the business can do the same job with individual accuracy. Of course, smarter businesses know that a recorded history is better than an older memory, but not everyone is ready to give up the reins or the reign.

* They’re Not Up-To-Date. They bought a computer years ago, got hooked up when AOL was in its early stages and are happy now They can write a letter, get e-mail, send e-mail, and log on to the Internet when necessary. They consider they now have a typewriter with a telephone attached, and that’s all they need.

* They Don’t Care. Their business system has been in place for years. The relationships have been built through years of working together. They truly believe their business is built on personal friendship and honest dealings. Electronic commerce is something that is out-there and doesn’t affect their business – just look at all the online aggregate marketplaces that have crashed and burned. Does this mean they don’t know about the Internet and e-commerce? No. It just means that they don’t care about it – they will do business the old-fashioned way.

* They Don’t Trust People. Whether it’s family, friends or an outside counselor, there is a fear that the words-of-wisdom may not be true. Did they buy hot stocks in 1999? Of course not. Did they buy Microsoft in 1991? Maybe, if they read Forbes, which they probably do. They are more inclined to believe in the trade media – though they don’t promote themselves – than in general press; more inclined to talk with people in their same industry in another city – non-competitors – than to the local Chamber of Commerce; more inclined to tell the family the business – if not family-in-the-business – than to talk to strangers at a networking event. These are proud people who do not brag, but exude only quiet pride in their business.

Got It. It’s Mine. You can buy millions of e-mail addresses, but personalization and privacy issues are, very important to people.

* Age. Though older age should be a determinate, there are many Gen X-Y-Zers who are not comfortable with the medium, Their interests lie elsewhere, generally in a person-to-person communications style, as in call on the cell phone, They use e-mail and IM (instant messaging) for personal correspondence only, and if they don’t know you, or if you’re not referred by a member of the group, they delete you.

* It’s Business, Not Pleasure. Despite the rumor that 70% of porn sites are active between 9 and 5 week-days, you won’t find the non-tech person signed on. Business is business, and their business runs on business hours.

* It’s Pleasure, Not Business. Using an e-mail blast? You may pick up home addresses when buying an e-mail list – otherwise known as SPAM – and you will be deleted. Many business people, much to a marketer’s surprise, do not log-on for business purposes while at home; nor do they want their children subjected to random business-oriented e-mail – ergo, you’re filtered.

What’s Real? Some people are still skittish about e-mail, spam and sites they consider to be a come-on. The technology is not trust-worthy in their minds because the people using the technology are not trust-worthy. Why-

* It’s Old. Does you web site say: Last updated – April 26, 2004? You’d be amazed at sites which sit for weeks, months, years and just mold. My suggestion is not to put a date on your site, and if you do, please keep it up-to- date. Unless refreshed and re-dated daily, you look old and out-of-date. Information which is wrong, out-dated or misleading is not perceived as just a mistake by a person who is not technology-savvy. You are perceived as a phony and will definitely lose business.

* Check Your Site. When was the last time you personally checked your corporate site? Is the information correct? Can people find a telephone number – do they know where to write you? The physical components are important because if people don’t feel comfortable online, they may feel more secure if you have a (1) fixed address and (2) a telephone number.

* Can’t Connect. Putting up a text page for a registration form, and then asking people to print it out and fax it, doesn’t cut it. If you want an interactive link, it must be interactive.

The wrap-up? Make it simple for people to find you on the web; make your e-mail promotions friendly and easy-to-use. Do not rely exclusively on electronic communication for registration, special deals and follow-up.

If they do not use a computer, e-mail, etc., you will have to communicate the old-fashioned way by print and telephone. If they are reluctant participants in the new economy, appreciate their wariness, make it quick and easy – and still communicate by ways in which they are comfortable.

The goal is to increase attendance, not to put up barriers. So, whether you’re a show organizer, a promoter or an exhibitor, an understanding of the technology and the comfort levels of each visitor is important.

Looking For a Good Drain Cleaning Company?

Sure, you love your hair. Everywhere you go you get praises for it. It’s full of life, luster and all that anybody can ask for. You’re thankful and very proud of it. It really has been your crowning glory for as long as you can remember. You love how thick it is and how long. You love it until it clogs the drain.

Clogged drains are perhaps one of those problems that nobody just can’t avoid save for bald people. The thing is, hair isn’t really easily soluble. It clumps; it turns into this ball of disgusting strands that eventually causes clogging. Nobody can help it. When this happens, the tough hair you admire suddenly becomes an enemy, and for good reasons.

Having your drain unclogged when it’s clogged up pretty bad is an exhausting process. It’s double the problem when you only find out just when you need to rush because you’re running late. It’s an inconvenience and depending on the degree of the clog, it might make a dent on your budget too. There are a lot of ways to get rid of clogs. Sometimes, even just plucking the strands does the trick. However, for more complicated cases it is mandatory that you ask for professional help or it could get worse.

One by one the strands can get past through the drain without problems. When they accumulate that’s when the problem starts. If the case has gone far too long without remedy, only experts can help you now. But before calling the next available number, consider first why you should contact a specific drain cleaning company.

A great drain cleaning company need not be famous. They can be good AND famous and they can also be just good. Some companies (specially the cost conscious one) do not find the need to advertise everywhere. They just want to provide services. And if you think about it carefully, the more famous a drain cleaning company is, the higher chance that the advertisements made can contribute to the increase in their prices. It’s a business thing.

If you can get a lot of referrals then that would be better. Do not hesitate to canvass the best prices for unclogging drains. Call for a faster response on a more or less accurate estimate of the possible expenses. But do not rely on amount alone. Ask whoever you got your referrals from whether the company did a good job or if there was a need to do a repeat. A ridiculously low priced service that lasts a mere 5 days isn’t really worth your time. You need a fix that will last until the threshold of your drain expires.

Fame is nothing compared to reputation. There are a lot of famous companies that have faced a lot of problems regarding quality. A company may not be visible in TVs, billboards, newspapers and other media but if patrons can attest to their service quality, then you might have just found a winner. Remember, the next time you go looking for a drain cleaning company, do not rely on the price or popularity alone. Like in anything you purchase, quality is most important of all.

Manageable Home Projects To Try

Through the decades and through every new trend, home styles have changed many times over the last few years. Homes have changed from small and easy to construct cottages to large modern and technologically advanced housing that is now available almost everywhere you plan to live. Using modular homes manufacturers to build a custom home is cost effective and gives the homeowner the opportunity to make revisions with the help of modular home manufacturers that offer reliable help to transform your home into something extra special for you and your family. Though most things can be done on your own, you may have some jobs that require a little bit of professional assistance.

One of the most common projects that people request help with nowadays; is breaking down walls in houses and rearranging the look of a room by opening it. Obviously, knocking down a wall can be very hard and somewhat dangerous without the correct equipment and expertise needed to do it right. This is an example of a project that you would not necessarily be able to know how to do yourself without some professional help and experience. Easier jobs, on the other hand, such as painting a room or stripping wallpaper, you would be able to do on your own and typically finish it well.

Other difficult jobs like stripping and relaying tile or filling an attic with insulation are all more difficult jobs and you are definitely going to want some professional help with those. These projects can not only be somewhat dangerous, but it will also be irritating if you make a mistake, as you are backing all of the expenses yourself. At least with a professional you can guarantee that there will be little to no mistakes, but they do require a fee for their trusted and reliable work.

When planning out all of the work that you want to do for your home, it can be a smart idea to use your local hardware store for reliable help when finding the items and equipment you need. Your local hardware stores will provide you with helpful hints and information as well as the equipment and supplies that you will need to complete your project. If you tell them what you are doing they will help you step by step along the way so that your project goes as smoothly and correctly as possible. A local hardware store is much more helpful and can allow you to do the process all on your own.

Fixing things up around your house can be very simple if you are ready to be patient and willing to do some hard work that is required to get it finished. If you are truly uninterested in hiring a professional, you may be able to save some expenses, but the work will not be extremely simple. You will need some help and some expertise from an experienced company. Either way you decide to take, you will be very satisfied with your finished results when you are done!

Connor R. Sullivan has noticed an increase of modular home manufacturers because of the extra need with the economic times of today. He liked the modular homes manufacturers concept of building prefabricated homes at their facilities which is cost effective.

How To Pay For Your Next Home Improvement

O.K. you want to add a hot tub to your home to enjoy your evenings outside with your family and friends. You have cash sitting in your bank or you have a few credit cards that you can tap into to finance your home improvement.

What is the best option? Should you get a Home Equity Line of Credit? Making the right decision is based on knowing various pros and cons of different ways to finance your home improvement project and your current situation. Even if you have cash sitting in the bank, it may not always be the best option.

If you have cash at hand, it should be earning at least 5% in a savings account. If you are not earning 5% from your bank, dump them and go to a bank that will give you at least 5% on your money. Search the Internet and you will be able to find a few online savings accounts, offered by well known banks like Citibank, Emigrant bank or HSBC that will give you a 5% return on your deposit.

If your credit is good and the project is small, search for a credit card that will give you 0% interest rate for a year. Apply online and get approved instantly. Within a couple of weeks, you will get your card and you will be able to use it for your home improvement project. When you get a loan on 0% interest rate, make sure that you do not miss a payment. To avoid missing a payment, use online payments offered by many banks for free or the online payment option of the credit card company.

If your home improvement project is a large one and you want to do it in stages, HELOC, or Home Equity Line of Credit, is a good option. Search the Internet to get the best rate. Find a bank that not only offers the best rate but also waives the finance charges. When you take a HELOC loan, you are essentially putting your home as collateral and the interest you pay may be tax deducible.

Refinancing your home is a good choice if you have a large equity in your home or you want to reduce your existing mortgage rate. Also, if your home improvement project will add substantial equity to you home, refinancing is an attractive option. You will also get tax benefits on the interest you pay.
Obtaining a second mortgage to finance your home improvement project makes sense if you get a low fixed interest rate and the interest rate on your first mortgage is even lower than the second mortgage. A second mortgage involves less paper works than a full refinancing.

Don’t make a decision on haste. Weigh the pros and cons of various methods discussed above and your current situation. Find the best way to finance your home improvement project using other people’s money and without hitting your pocket book hard.

It is Useful to Have a Checklist When Assessing the Merits of a Commercial Cleaning Company

    2012 Alison Withers

Facilities managers responsible for all sorts of large buildings in the business, health and hospitality sectors will be aware of the variety of regulations governing the maintenance of those buildings to minimise the health and safety risks to the people using them.

One important area for attention is any ductwork installed in the building for either air conditioning, heating or extraction purposes.

Generally the focus of concern relating to ductwork is the risk of fires, the risk of spreading germs and infections and the quality of the air in the building. Keeping the ductwork to acceptable standards usually requires a regular programme of maintenance inspections and cleaning that is set at a level appropriate to the activities within the building.

There are plenty of specialist companies that carry out duct cleaning and the question for managers is how to identify the right duct cleaning company to use.

While it is always a good strategy to ask for quotations from more than one company, this does not necessarily mean that the cheapest will be the best.

By having the selected companies complete a preliminary inspection and submit a report with recommendations and proposals with their quotes you can learn a lot.

The first item to check because it will give an indication of the company’s competence is whether it uses the best practice guidelines recommended b the Industry body, the HVCA (Heating and Ventilation Contractors’ Association) which was renamed the B&ES (the Building & Engineering Services Association) earlier in 2012.

You should also expect that any reputable duct cleaning company is familiar with and complies with the Health & Safety at Work 1974 Act, COSHH regulations on dealing with hazardous chemicals.

The company should be able and willing to provide a certificate of completion after carrying out any ductwork cleaning, a photographic report upon completing each contract and if the ductwork involved is part of a commercial kitchen operation standards should conform to the Food Safety Acts.

It may be important to know more about the equipment the company has available not only for cleaning but also for safe working if working at heights is involved. In some situations the types of chemical cleaning materials that will be used may be important.

The other important concerns to put on the checklist may include flexibility. Is the company willing to carry out the work outside of periods of peak activity in the building? There should also be some clear guidelines as to what guarantees there are about refunds if the work has not been carried out satisfactorily.

When considering contracting out to a commercial ductwork cleaning company the cheapest quote is not always the best and there are a number of issues that facilities managers should check. By Ali Withers.
