          I had remodeled my TV room with wood flooring. Over time when my recliners were moved they scratched the floor. I decided to refinish the floor with the Rejuvenate Professional Wood Floor Restorer. It really worked great. It was really easy to apply; I used a large microfiber floor mop and did the whole room in about an hour. I recommend cleaning the floors thoroughly then going back over with a dust mop. The floor needs to be really clean before applying this finish. The results were excellent with a nice satin finish over the entire floor. I purchased the satin finish of this product as I did not want the floors to shine, but rather just have a soft sheen to them. The product was easy to Read More

Overall really pleased with the results. Read Less

          Be alerted of water leaks on the spot to avoid potentially costly water damage. Add piece of mind with a Honeywell Water Leak Alarm. Place the water leak alarm throughout your home in hard-to-see areas: around toilet bases; under sinks; behind dishwashers, refrigerators and washing machines; and by water heaters and sump pumps. A little addition can make a big difference.

          The water sensor sets off an alarm when a small amount of water becomes present . When the sensors on the bottom of the alarm contacts water , a alarm sounds three times every 3 seconds as long as the water is present, for up to 24 hours. The decibel level needs to be higher especially in larger and 2 story homes. This is the reason I did not give this devise a higher overall rating. The water leak alarm is a must in every home to protect from potential flooding.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions
          Cons: decibel level low

          I have installed over 30 of these recessed baffled kits and have not found a problem. Their appearance is as good as the more expensive brand.The only thing I would like to see is quick connect electrical connectors as in the more expensive recessed lights. Using the wire nuts takes additional time to install.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Looks Great
          Cons: change connections to quick connect

          Milwaukee by far makes the best drill bits of this type.This is a must tool if you are into electrical projects. Works great on sheet metal as well as wood. Cuts holes fast and clean. Saves a lot of time instead of using several smaller conventional bits and working your way up to a larger bit in order to keep the hole round. Self-starting multi-hole bit. Perfect all-around bit for the most common drilling applications
          Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Long-Lasting

          GT Knee Kicker/Carpet Installer
          This product worked well to straighten out a small area of carpeting that had stretched out. I was pleased to find the job cost less than hiring a professional carpet layer. Good solution for a small job. The padding on the kicker didn't hurt my knee when I used it. The kicker grabbed the carpet extremely well. The length of the gripper teeth has seven settings. This allows you to set it very close to your trim, which helps the carpet attach to the tack strip properly. The length of the kicker tool is adjustable between 18-7/8” to 24”.
          Pros: Sturdy, Comfortable

          is it possible to see the energy guide that should be on the freezer somewhere (In store) I can't find any info re energy use except that it is energystar. Would like to see how much difference in energy usage compared to a new freezer that isn't energystar. Thanks!!

          Answer: 
          I looked thought out the Owner's Manual but could not find anything on the energy guide of this appliance. If it was on the door when delivered it we would have removed it. I can only suggest you contact GE customer relations. GEAppliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm
           
          Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe any drywall tape will be good on a sagging ceiling. This tape is excellent for ceilings where cracks keep on reappearing. I suggest that you use additional sheet rock screws to secure the wall board to the ceiling joists. Once the ceiling is secure I would use this crack tape.
