During the summer months, dirt, debris and fluid spills from your vehicle can cause your garage floor to look unsightly. But during the fall and winter months, the added problem of water, snow and ice can make it unsafe.
One solution to combating all of the problems above is to install containment mat. When you park your car on the mat, any melted snow and ice will drip onto its surface. Dirt and debris will collect there as well. You can clean the mat when it becomes too dirty, or hang it out to dry when it’s too wet.
The downside to a containment mat is that it only covers a small portion of the garage floor and requires the user to be physical ...

If it needs to be carpeting, look at something in polyester. Resista carpeting comes in a variety of colors and styles that simply won't absorb spills or accidents. Tigressa H2O is a similar carpet offering that features a waterproof backing, meaning spills won't soak through to create smells and mold.
In hard surfaces, vinyl is an increasingly popular option because of the aesthetic versatility. Coretec flooring, for exa ...

Homeowners have lots of questions about grout, and Shawn from Guhde Flooring America has probably been asked all of them.
Grout is the paste, often composed of cement, that fills in the gaps between tiles. Advancements and varying needs in consumer grouts means that there are many variations, sealing methods, and cleaning techniques. Some grouts require sealing and cleaning to keep their attractive finish, and others don't.
Fortunately, you don't have to become an expert in grouts to make use of the best option in your home. Shawn's the grout guy, he'll be your expert:
The garage is the room in your home most likely to need some TLC. When compared to a complete kitchen or bath remodel, the changes are more straightforward and more economical, but it still pays to choose a professional contractor. This is because professionals have access to tools and materials that simply aren't available to consumers at big-box stores.
Diamond-coated grinders and polyaspartic polyurea coatings are prohibitively expensive or simply unavailable to homeowners for a one-off project. Even if they were available, there'd still be a professional touch missing. When it comes to garage flooring for instance, it's all in the preparation. Getting the new flooring to "stick" to the ...
We've got nothing against the insurance industry, but it's no secret that some insurance companies are difficult to deal with when seemingly-covered losses occur.
Homeowners can be at a disadvantage when losses happen because most of us don't spend all day surrounded by insurance jargon. Additionally, catastrophic events can be disorienting and the primary concern is usually the safety of one's own family, with securing fair treatment from insurance companies coming in a distant second.
That's why it's important for homeowners to find an ally in the claims process. One of the first calls you should make after storm damage occurs is to a reputable, local contractor that specializes in insur ...
Take a peek at Perfect Home Restoration's replacement window process.
All Perfect Home Restoration Windows come standard with a 10-year manufacturer warranty, and a lifetime warranty on the working parts of the window. That means if the window isn't doing its job, it will be fixed, at no cost to the homeowner.
Perfect Home Restoration windows are also installed by professionals, so you're not responsible for tearing out and disposing of the old window. This professional installation also ensures a tight seal between the old frame and the new window, a potential source of leakage and energy inefficiency.
