          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This seems like a very resilient floor tile product and has a nice color.
          However, this is not a do it yourself product unless you're a tile expert. These are not peel and stick which means an adhesive must be applied to the surface prior to installing the tiles.
          These are commercial grade tiles and are probably best placed in a store or office setting. They would be excellent for finishing a basement remodel as they are high quality and designed for long wear even under heavy traffic.

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 3/4 in. Push-to-Connect Coupling intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market. No tools are required to make a connection. They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security. When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe. Color: Black.

          Ecosmart LED light bulbs may well be your best value for normal lighting. LED bulbs are smarter than incandescent and CFL's because they last far longer than either and do not contain mercury as CFL's do and therefore don't present the waste hazard.
          Of course you won't be throwing these away any time soon since under normal use they're life expectancy is 13.6 years based daily usage of 3 hours.
          They are listed as "daylight" because of the clarity of light they produce is very crisp white light. They are also dimmable which used to be the one issue with LED bulbs. But this problem has been solved.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright, daylight white light, long lasting, don't get hot, saves money on energy

          Our Valved Respirators with Gaskets are designed to help you stay cool while providing you with a better fit. The dust masks feature a comfortable tight sealing gasket creating a secure seal on your face for all day comfort. The respirator valve reduces the construction masks internal temperature by 10°F keeping you cool while at work. Milwaukee masks feature 2 soft adjustable straps and a flexible nose bridge allowing you to achieve a better fit. The respirator masks are ideal for non-harmful sanding, grinding, sawing and insulation particles.

          A respirator mask is required for numerous jobs. Sanding, replacing brakes, spray painting and many more jobs.
          Currently I'm doing a large drywall job and sanding a lot of joint compound. Definitely you need to wear a mask for this job. I've tried a lot of those drug store masks with little luck. Sure they're cheap but that might be their biggest problem. They don't work well, are hard to fit. The stapled elastic bands sometimes rip out and to get them tight enough, some of us have to tie a knot in them. And the bands don't fit your head well. If they have 2 straps, the bottom always slides down the back of your neck. Not to mention, the mask itself often doesn't fit your face well. For Read More

If they have 2 straps, the bottom always slides down the back of your neck. Not to mention, the mask itself often doesn't fit your face well. For me those cheap masks just don't work.
          I recently got these Milwaukee respirators and all that's changed. They fit my face and have a foam gasket around the inside that is comfortable but also creates a seal. The exhale valve in the center helps prevent moisture build up and aids with breathing. And finally, the 2 well placed straps are fused to loops on the masks sides (not stapled) so they wont come off. And instead of having to tie knots in the back, the straps have a cinch that you just slip along the strap until it fits tight and comfortable.
          If the job calls for a respirator mask, use one that actually fits and really works. Plus it's highly re-usable. No throw away. So even though they may cost a little more, they're cheaper in the long run. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Comfortable, adjustable, doesn't hold moisture, long lasting, made to be re-used

          What a lovely piece. If you enjoy being decorative during the holidays, consider getting this Carriage/Horse combination for indoor or outdoor use with LED lights.
          It is a beautiful item that can really dress up a yard. We got it just in time as we're experiencing a very early winter this year with a few inches of snow on the ground, this really looks great.
          Most won't opt to display this indoors as it is rather large requiring about 4 feet by 6 feet of space. But when you see my pictures of it on the lawn amid the fresh snow, you're going to want one.
          Keep in mind, it needs considerable assembly. It took me about an hour (give or take) to put it together. And a tip. Unless you Read More

          December 3, 2019
          Answer: 
          The needles aren't really like needles but more like clusters. All of the foliage is made of the same material which is more like a fabric. They are rather flexible and not stiff like real pine needles.
          Except for the tips, the foliage is made to the metal wire branches and able to support plenty of decoration without sticking or poking of real needles.

          Answer: 
          The branches are riveted no there are no screws to tighten.
          If you have a branch hanging too low it can be bent to adjust it to where it matches.
          I too had a couple branches that were hanging lower than I liked. To fix this, you need to grasp the branch near the trunk with one hand firmly. With the other hand gradually bend up on the branch until it suits your liking.

          You may have to do this several times to get it how you want it. And the branch wire is pretty strong (doesn't bend real easy) but it will bend. Just be sure to use both hands as you need to support the branch near the trunk whenever bending to avoid damaging the fasteners at the trunk. Read Less
