I’m a big fan of in-floor heating and highly recommend that you install it in your next bathroom reno. In-floor heating technology has improved tremendously and can now be easily installed even into an existing bathroom plus, many systems incorporate smart technology.

Here's a tip: Leveling your floor is very important before tiling. One way to asses if you have uneven flooring is taking a level and measuring the dip. You can also roll a ball on the floor and see if it moves towards a dip. By taking the extra time to properly make the floor level and true, you can prevent cracks, dips, and even squeaks in your bathroom floor. Plus, tile installation becomes much easier with a level floor.

Planning to do some renovations this year? Remember, that the process of hiring a contractor can take JUST as long as it takes to complete the project itself.

Do NOT rush this process - renovations are expensive, and you need to make sure you're bringing in the right team.

For years, I’ve been talking about how serious radon is - it’s the leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It’s why I’ve been advocating for homeowners to take a more proactive stance against radon in their homes by testing, and mitigating radon when the results are high.

To help that, I’ve teamed up with Radon Environmental Management Corp. to giveaway their new EcoQube. This thing is really slick, you place the small unit in your home, download the app for your smartphone, connect the device to your wifi - and in two hours you can have an accurate reading of the radon levels in your home - and tell you if you need to take action.

Winning is simple. Just comment on this post using #TestForRadon, and let me know if you’ve ever had your home tested for radon. And make sure you’ve followed both mine and Radon Environmental Management Corp.'s pages! I will be announcing the winner on March 10th.

Wondering why you hear a noise with each garage door opening and closing? The most common fix is to apply some lubricant. However, the wrong lube (for example grease) will make the noise worse. If you get the proper lubricant and lubricate the tracks where the rollers run.

Disconnect the opener before you do this.

The garage door is typically the largest moving item on a house. It also serves as the most common point of entry, think of how many times a day you walk under the garage door, and think of how important it is that the door is properly installed and running safely. I believe it is underrated in terms of importance.

Long-term radon exposure is linked to about 16 percent of all lung cancer deaths in Canada. It’s the leading cause of the disease for non-smokers - and it’s something we all need to take seriously. @RadonCorp

As a builder, how do you prevent radon entry? I’d like to introduce two products to you; #Radon Guard and Radon Block. Both products are the only Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC) approved alternative to the prescriptive gravel & vapour barrier in the code

Not all asphalt shingles are created equally. Make sure to choose a shingle that has at least a 25-year warranty. Work with your roofing contractor to understand what the warranty will cover and any proration periods included. #RoofItRight https://t.co/cY7qUkpISl
