If you live on a home with a well system, radon can be present in your water. So what can you do about it? First, have your water tested by a professional - then, if the radon levels are high, install the Airwell from Radon Environmental Management Corp.

Expanding foam! For anyone looking to mend their fence post, install a birdfeeder or a mailbox, check out this easy (and DIY) method. 👍

Here we are using the Sika PostFix-a two-part, pre-proportioned polyurethane resin. When it is mixed (in the bag) it produces an expanding foam. You can find it at your local home improvement stores. Just make sure you use the proper protection-gloves, safety glasses.

Here’s what to do:

👉Lay down the pkg and roll the bag so you break the seal. Mix it up by running it over your knee - nice and easy.

👉Cut a corner off the bag and pour the mix close to the post.

👉The PostFix will foam up - it’s a fast setting polyurethane foam and will reach full strength in about two hours.

👉Then you just cover the foam back up with your soil and a little bit of seed. Bob’s your uncle, it’s that easy.

You could use this stuff to install fence posts, gate posts, mailboxes, bird feeders, and even light posts. Spring is a good time to get started on all those outdoor projects you’ve been putting off. If you’ve got fences on your property - you should be checking them every spring for instances of mould or rot - and replace any boards or posts immediately before if affects the rest of the fence.

Product available through Sika and Sika Canada Inc.

I got SO many awesome questions about your water systems, that I had to make another video just to answer a few more.

I've recently had a state-of-the-art water softening and reverse osmosis drinking water system installed in my home by the pros at Kinetico Water Systems. I can absolutely feel and TASTE the difference when I shower or drink water. My filters are customized to suit the needs of my water system - that makes a difference. These guys are total pros. 👍

Keep leaving us your questions for #AskMike!

Sometimes finding a leak is a lot like being a detective—you have to find the source of the problem by looking at the evidence. Where’s the water coming from? Where should you check for leaks? Is it a plumbing problem? https://t.co/7bT6QQk2pd

Most homeowners tackle their landscaping to improve the curb appeal of their home. But as a contractor, I can tell you that good landscaping goes beyond the curb appeal.
