          I was looking for a track light to replace a light in my office. I received the light very fast and it was packed so the bulbs and shades would not get damaged. I was impressed with the instructions. Usually light installation instructions are a single page, but this was a booklet. The shades are a beautiful off-white and the glass is thick. The heads only pivot one way 90 degrees, but the head turns 180 degrees so you can get light to almost any area. Every thing you need to install the light is included so you will not need to run to the hardware store. I specifically got this light so I could add additional heads and/or tracks to ensure I get the right amount of light in my office. I Read More

          I have a rental and was looking to inexpensively upgrade the bathroom before re-renting it. Swapping out the shower head is a very inexpensive way to visually and functionally update your shower. Also, I was replacing a standard shower head, so adding the hand-held component makes cleaning the shower/bath tub much easier. The shower head looks fantastic and is a great upgrade to the bathroom. I am really impressed at the three different spray patterns on this shower head. For a water sense shower head, it has great water pressure. At this price point, it is a great buy.

This is because the doors are on roller system at the top and not installed on a track at the bottom. Not having the track at the bottom, makes keeping the base easy to clean. But since there is no track on the bottom and only a center bracket, when you are sliding the doors, they may fell less than solid. After using them for a few days, you no longer even notice it.

          I got this valve to install in my rental. I was looking for a valve that was solid metal - no plastic. This valve is made out of solid brass, bronze, and stainless steel. It has stops so you can shut off the water and replace parts - no tearing out tile/sheet rock! The parts are available on Homedepot.com. The rental is older so I wanted to make sure it hand pressure-balancing and anti-scald, so if someone flushed a toilet, the tenant wouldn't get scalded.
          I haven't used it long but in looking at the quality compared to other manufacturers valves, I am happy I got it. The only thing is if you are a pex fan, this is not the valve for you.

          How random is the pattern of the boards? I installed Traffic Master Lakeshore Pecan (looks great) but they only had about eight different patterns so you had to make sure to open all the boxes and sort by pattern before you could lay out your floor otherwise you might have the same pattern next to each other.
