          Helvetic Floors Water Resistant St. Maurice Oak is a beautiful addition to any home. With beautiful color variation transitioning between brown, beige and black, this new modern design fits within most any design style. The 8mm planks with beveled edge will provide the realistic look you've been seeking. With its high-density planks and AC5 wear layer to accommodate heavy commercial traffic, it can cope with pretty much anything to which it is exposed.

          Helvetic Floors Water Resistant Erlach Oak is a beautiful addition to any home. A multi-color plank to plank blend of white, beige, brown and taupe make this design a popular and original blend of colors. The 12mm planks with beveled edge will provide the realistic look you've been seeking. With its high-density planks and AC5 wear layer to accommodate heavy commercial traffic, it can cope with pretty much anything to which it is exposed.

          This Erlach Oak from Helvic floors is made and imported from Switzerland. It is 100% renewable and carrys a 35 year warranty.It is water resistant and wet moppable as well as kid and pet friendly.Once you have the area you want to install it on clean you need to lay a layer of PE to dampen the floor from echoing and as a vapor barrier.You can also lay floor heaters down.You need to set shims along the edge for expansion and your good to go.There is no nails or glues you just snap it together and cut the ends to fit and it really is that simple.It looks great and when the time comes it can be disassembled just as easy.I have never had an easier time laying a floor and i Am really happy.

          OPTIX Green Edge Acrylic sheets give you the premium look and clarity of glass but with the strength and design flexibility of acrylic. It appears virtually colorless, until your view is drawn to the dramatic green edge. Use wherever you want the look of glass, table tops, shelves and frameless picture framing are common applications.

          This acrylic sheet can be used for so many projects around the house and business it is a must have.
          I use it mainly for picture frames and window replacement for storm doors.It doesn't scratch easily and doesn't shatter when the kids slam the door.It can be easily cut with an acrylic scribe and a straight edge or a circular saw.It has plastic sheeting on both sides to protect the finish and once removed leaves it looking like glass.It is a great bargain versus replacing broken glass over and over again.

          Capture a handcrafted, artisan appearance that seems to have been derived directly from twentieth-century Spain with the Merola Tile Novecento Subway Cobalto 2-1/2 in. x 5-1/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile. With a cobalt hand-painted crackle watercolor glaze, this rustic tile offers a glossy, reflective finish for a glass-like appearance. Asymmetrical edges and a smooth surface with varying indentations throughout this glossy tile fashion a handmade appearance. Derived from the classic subway format, this tile is tastefully smaller for a distinctive, unexpected design element. Due to its partially handmade process, each tile could offer slight size variation. This old-world tile is great as a cohesive look or paired with other items in the Novecento program. Intended for interior wall use, this tile is an excellent selection to accent your backsplash, shower wall, fireplace facade or accent wall. It is necessary that you seal this tile before grouting to prevent the absorption of staining agents over time.

          Install the yard or pool fence you've always dreamed of and without the back breaking work of digging holes and pouring concrete. Virtually maintenance free and backed by a lifetime warranty, this simple but elegant yard and pool fence will look new for years to come. The best part of this fence is the innovative installation method. Because there is no digging deep hole or pouring concrete, it takes a lot of the time and labor out of installing your fence. You install the yard and pool fence post much like chain link has been installed for the past 50-years by first driving a steel 1-5/8 in. galvanized pipe anchor (included) deep into the ground with a sledge hammer or post pounder. If your pipe is slightly crooked after installation, you can utilize our patented leveling donuts (included), to adjust into level to compensate accordingly. Once you sleeve your vinyl post over the pipe, it's straight and level. The end result is a sturdy and strong permanent fence that wills last decades. For more detail, see our installation guides.

          Can anyone give me a comparison of this particular model versus the 8 Qt Insta Pot brand besides that this one is way bigger. Is it well made and have a good internal cooking chamber and does it seem to be worth going off brand? I have never heard of this brand before so a little skeptical, but I want a large size and 8 qt just doesn’t seem big enough for what I need it for
