As many of you know, there was a recent online scam using my likeness to sell a product through Facebook.

BuzzFeed News put out an article about the company responsible for this online scam plus many others. This company has made a lot of money from this scam and taken advantage of people.

Please remember to always internet surf wisely and always use plenty of common sense – and do your own independent research before you buy any product you see online. If you think I am standing behind a product, check out my website to verify that.

Every homeowner should have some basic knowledge about tools—not necessarily to renovate their home themselves, but maybe for smaller projects, like hanging a picture, changing a door, building a shelf, or maybe even doing some interlocking stonework outside.

I still get homeowners telling me their contractor says it’ll be fine to put the old tile over new, or the old hardwood with new, and it’ll cost less. It won't be fine, and if your contractor suggests that, get rid of him—he doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Minimum code is in place for safety—to make sure your house will stay standing and no one will be injured by it. The fact is minimum code sometimes just isn’t good enough for quality. If it were, we wouldn’t have the problems we do now.
