          I have done tile work before but always hired tile contractors for the big jobs, i.e., shower/shower pan. I have had great experience with Dewalt tools, so after frustration over my last bathroom tile job, I decided to get this saw for the complete redo of our house. Because of the size of the project and the duration, it was cheaper to buy a saw than to rent. First, this saw is heavy, not inordinately but I needed my husband's help to set it up on the stand. Also, make sure that you set it up where you want because the stand is stationary (no wheels). Again, not a negative, but an FYI. The quality of the saw is impressive.

Also, make sure that you set it up where you want because the stand is stationary (no wheels). Again, not a negative, but an FYI. The quality of the saw is impressive. For someone like myself who does a whole house remodel every couple of years, I don't see the need to buy another saw. The saw works on 18" tiles and is very easy to use (even without readying the manual ;-). It cuts great - on both ceramic and porcelain tile. The other tile saws I used, I always seemed to get wet, not the case with this saw. An added bonus since I was doing tile work on a covered porch in 40 degree weather! Also, other saws I rented only had a single water line going to the blade, this one has two. I would assume that this will help it from getting hot and wearing out. Based on the price and capabilities, and if you are like me on usage, I would recommend this over a smaller or larger saw. The saw is as pictured and here is the shower I did with it. Read Less

          This light has a great contemporary look, even modern. It is a standard, easy install and not so heavy that one person can't install it themselves. I got this light because of the width and price point but I wasn't really keen on the round lights. From the pictures online, I I felt they weren't as "modern' as what I was looking for but I was wrong once I got it installed. It is a very beautiful light. My brother who doesn't care about any home decoration or decor actually said "Wow, nice light!" when he first saw it.

          The fan is extremely quiet. I would not hesitate putting this in a bedroom. The remote is lightweight and I like the tactical feel of the buttons - soft plastic push buttons. The fan is a little slow to get to speed, not a negative but at first I thought the low setting was extremely low. A neat feature is if you hold down the light button, the LED will dim. I really like the LED and it turns on pretty quickly - take a look at the video.
          I knocked off one star because the only con is the MANUAL summer/winter switch. You will need to get a step stool or ladder to change the direction of the fan. This is not controlled on the remote.

          Everything you need to install this fan is in the box. It took about 1/2 hour to install The longest part was attaching the blades. One review stated that the fan was unbalanced and returned it. Once installed ours was not unbalanced but, in the box, are balancing weights to fix the issue. Another review stated that the brushed housing was plastic, that is not true or at least the one we received was constructed out of metal. The blades are not metal, but I don't know if they are painted wood or plastic, but they look good either way.

          The fan is extremely quiet on the lowest and medium settings, and a little 'noisy' on the highest. Not noisy enough that you can't watch TV at a normal setting but if you are a light sleeper it may be a tad loud - most of the noise is from the moving air. As illustrated on the remote picture, there are three settings and a reverse. The remote feels really 'plastic-y', if you know what I mean. Very light and I would imagine, if you have kids, could get damaged easy
          The light is good, but I would not count on it as the main source of light in a room. Read Less

          This LED bath light has a look that is both sophisticated and casually decorative. 2 minimalist tubes of elegant, high-style etched opal glass are joined at the center by a round metal Back plate in beautiful Polished Nickel finish, and then accented with a subtle stylized detail that gives it just a touch of home-style charm. This LED light may also be hung vertically or horizontally, adding to this design's versatility.

          I got this light for a rental and once I opened up the box, I decided to keep it for my house. First, I have a mid-century modern home and it looks fabulous in our spare bathroom, which has a classic black and white tile with a pop of color in the towels.. The light is extremely heavy - not a bad thing - but you will need two people to install it. Not because it is difficult to install, but one person has to hold the light while the other person wires it. It is a simple 3 wire install - black, white, and ground. I recommend using a small level when you put up the mounting bracket because you are not going to want to have to try and level it after the light is installed. Also some led lights Read More

          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.

          Answer: 
          Hi,
          Yes you still need to leave the gap. You want to put in 100% waterproof clear silcone between the gap and the tub, like Tap Silicone Max 10.1 oz. Clear 100% Premium Kitchen and Bath Silicone Sealant (model: #08668). I would then install the Zamma Starry Light 5/8 in. Thick x 3/4 in. Wide x 94 in. Length Vinyl Quarter Round Molding (Model # 015143850) to cover the gap and finish it off.

          Can this be mounted upside down so the lights shine down. Looking at installing it over the sink.

          Answer: 
          Yes you could mount it upside down. However, when you look up you will see the LEDs which is not visually appealing. Also, I don't think it will provide enough light for that type of installation.

          Answer: 
          If the linoleum floor is stable, yes you could install it over the flooring. You will still need to put down an underlayment - I recommend Trafficmaster .Standard underlayment (Model:100779555)
          If the linoleum is glued to concrete or the location is below grade, I would spend the money and get a better underlayment, such as Roberts Airguard 5 in 1 underlayment (Model: 70-105) I have used it and it is Read More
