You are looking for carpet sales and installation near Oxford, Mi.

Not sure if you are looking for a one-time purchase or a dependable supplier for the long-term.

The flooring business has changed a lot in the last decade or so as the number of manufacturers has been reduced significantly, so actual product price choices to retailers became limited.

Thanks for being part of the show – we appreciate you!

You have a concern about your crawl space – particularly that there may be “critters” living down there!

Kathy,

Thank you for your question. We appreciate your trust.

Is there an easy way to soundproof an existing wall?

“Easy” is the operable word here – and right behind that would be the idea of deadening/reducing sound transmission versus sound “proofing” or eliminating the sound altogether.

Sound waves are real and measurable. Various building materials do a good job of transferring them, while other materials help to reduce their magnitude and “deaden” or reduce them.

You may have a wall that does a decent ..read more

Buying a Home

Thank you for being part of the show – we appreciate you!

Is it a good idea to replace old galvanized plumbing water supply pipes with newer copper pipes?

It really depends on the condition of your existing pipes and water system.

In most cases, older water lines have an accumulation of minerals on them that restricts flow to your fixtures. You may have noticed you don’t seem to get as much water coming out of the shower head – or the toilets ..read more

Marilyn,

Thank you for listening and for being part of the show – we appreciate you!

Ideally, you should treat your crawl space exactly like a basement – so you really shouldn’t be opening the vents to the outside – the air in that space should be circulated through the conditioned air in the house  – as long as the space is insulated and sealed as you say.

The duct work is now running through “conditioned” space – that is a good thing ..read more
