          Bought this caulk to match colored grout in the corners and base of a newly built tile shower surround. I am an experienced DIYer with a fair amount of caulking experience. This stuff is like all 100% silicone caulks I have worked with - not the easiest type of caulking to use. I learned long ago that taping the edges and having mineral spirits and a couple of clean rags handy greatly enhances the finished product . Pull up the tape and and wipe off any excess within 10 minutes of completing each application run. I gave the product an overall 'Good' rating because of the typical challenge of using 100% silicone caulk and only time will tell if product lasts 6-7 years without any issues. I Read More

I gave the Quality a 'Good' rating because while the product date was less than a year ago the top inch or so of product had separated into clear and tinted liquids. Value wise I believe it is a little cheaper than competing 100% silicone colored caulks. Read Less

          I was looking for an economical small solar tube type skylight for a windowless hallway. I've never lived in a place that had this style skylight much less installed one so I was wary of spending for a high end unit. The unit was fairly easy to install - a little tricky to adjust for a slight angle off completely vertical but the instructions were adequate for the task. The ODL help desk was great. I wanted some insight because I live in an old plaster and lathe Craftsman style house and the instructions were geared for sheetrock walls and ceilings. I would say start to finish took six hours including patching the boogered up ceiling plaster. If one was working with standard drywall Read More

          Upgrading a bathroom with 12x24 tile for both the shower surround and the floor. I purchased this product because it is grey (tiles are grey) and the in store product is white as well as the fact that it is $4 per bag cheaper. Worked well for both applications although I found it a little difficult to attain the right consistanccy. My fault though - I seem to repeatedly mix it a little too stiff - do-it-yourselfer syndtome.
          Pros: Very Adhesive

          The Husky Professional Box Level features 3 solid acrylic shock-resistant vials to help provide easy readings. Plumbsite technology allows you to read the vial from the front to help prevent neck and back strain. The ergonomic grip handles helps insulate your hands in cold environments and provides friction for non-slip markings.

          Ordered this level on line. It was well packed and arrived quickly. The quality appears to be excellent - sturdy and well built. Not sure about how useful the plumb site feature will be but it seems like a good concept. My only reason for the four star rating instead of five is that the the rubber shock absorbing end caps seem pretty hard (non-impact absorbent) - more like plastic than rubber. Pretty good value for price.

          The shower base does not appear to be made out of the same material as their solid surface countertops.

          I have not installed it yet. I am disappointed with my first impression of this shower base (32x48 solid surface white color). I expected a product constructed more like their solid surface countertop but this is a much thinner base that seems closer to their Veritek line that the the solid surface material I was expecting. None the less it appears sturdy and based on others recommendations I am going to use in my bathroom remodel.
