          This flooring is just what we were looking for for our kitchen. The color and texture makes these not appear to be a laminate, but real weathered lumber. As another reviewer pointed out, the are a lot of duplicate boards, but by laying out several boxes we were able to avoid any identical boards being close. The shade of gray does vary considerably, but that was what we wanted for our installation.
          Pros: Feels Like Wood, Looks Great, Looks Like Wood

          There are time when a heavy longer tie down strap is needed, and this on fills the bill very well. The latch mechanism is very heavily built, with easy to operate spool releases. Being able to snap the side down and slide the strap onto the center spool is much handier than having to start at the end and pull it all the way through. The hooks are heavy steel and the stitching connecting them to the strap appears more than adequate.
          Pros: Nice Design, Sturdy

          The detain of this wallpaper is so precise that it almost looks 3 dimensional. From just a couple feet away someone wouldn't know it wasn't real logs! Installation is the same as any peel and stick wallpaper, the surface should be clean, dry and smooth. Two people make the job go much easier, and lessen the likeliness of the exposed adhesive side sticking to itself.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design

          This replaced the worn out knob assembly on our storm door, and not only does it work much better than the old one it is much better looking, giving our old door a more modern look. Installation was pretty easy, the existing holes matched this latch perfectly, and all hardware needed is included, including screws of varying sizes to match the thickness of the door. I did the installation by myself, but a helper to hold everything in place until the first screw is started would make things easier.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          Get the right clean for your dishes with this stainless steel dishwasher. Choose the Sensor cycle and let your stainless steel dishwasher pick the right cycle for you, then rely on the TotalCoverage spray arm to get the job done. Finish up with dry dishes thanks to the stainless steel tub. Color: Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel.
           

          Can you cancel a cycle after it starts? And can you open the door to add something you forgot?

          Answer: 
          After 15 years the solids may have settled to the bottom of the can. If the can is still sealed, turn the can upside down for a few days, the flip it back over and check to see if the contents are mixed.
