"Back to the money pit home improvement show. I'm Tom Chrysler, and I'm Leslie regretting. And we here at the money pit love to give you tips and tricks of the trade to help everything at your home. Feel better, bigger, more organized all the good stuff. So if you find that you need some more storage in your bathroom, maybe for towels or toiletries or really anything else. You might have some hidden storage areas available. If you know where to look, for example, that wall space above a toilet really is large enough for a full 12 by 30 and storage cabinet. Yep. In a decorative brass wire shelf amounted high on the bathroom walls. Also a good place to roll and store your big and bulky bath towels. In fact, in my house, I made what would have looked like a brass wire shelf if I could have found one wide enough. I mean it out of PVC pipe using these three quarters PVC pipe. I've shaped it to be just like one of those brass wire shells, rockets and all painted it. Well, if you've ever suffered a spill, Getting that spill cleanup quickly is the best way to make sure it doesn't set And this is especially true of red wine stains. Now these air gonna oxidize the longer that they sit. So here's a couple of ways that you can help make that stain disappear. If it's on clothing like washable clothing. You wanna flush immediately under cold water, then rub with a depth of dish soap for laundry detergent, then flush it again with cold water until that stain is gone. If it's a dry clean on Lee item, he would have blotted his best as you can with paper towels or a white dish cloth. And then as quickly as possible, get that item to the dry cleaner, Even if it's the next day, get it there a sap now if it happens to be on carpet or upholstery. If the carpet here is the issue, you want to soak up whatever you can with a super quick block of a cloth, then grab table salt in a pour spout container and mounted on top of the stain. That salt is gonna pull the wind up and out of those carpet fibers. You're also going to be able to tell them that salt is no longer absorbing wine, at which point you can use a vacuum or just pan and broom, however, to sweep all of that salt up if that still happens to be on your sofa. Do your best blotting with paper towels or a white cloth, skip the salt and then go ahead and use a fabric cleaner. Anyone you've got a home. Yeah, By the way, Whatever you do not rub, you might be tempted to sort of furiously scrub it the same, But that's basically the worst thing you can do because it pushes the state's further into the fibers, which is not ideal, so considering that your goal is to extract this stain, you got to do less and less will be more How do you know it's winter will can in Wisconsin is dealing with ice and snow in the gutters can sorry you are dealing with this weather. How can I help you today? Well, what I've got is I got a ranch style home. I put in a dish on And since I put the addition I now when I get snow we had just know I got about eight inches on the roof. But now I gotta ice build up in the gutters, and it's not backed up a little bit. And I got icicles. Probably 45 ft Long I'm afraid going to back up into the house. How do I stop that or give her wait up? Get it melted and get rid of it. Okay, So so this is in addition, and it's only happening on the edition, and it's not happening on the main house, know what's happening on the main house and the edition Wolf. Okay, so this.

You could do a whole Conspiracy theory barstool sat You could do whatever you want. Really. They really don't need very many tools to tackle that, right. What do you need A stable gun and some padding Yates come from some spread of staples and a staple gun and a pair of scissors. And, of course, Arrow is the perfect place to pick up your staples because you guys have been making Staples and stable guns from all about a century of remember correctly, right? 91 years this year. Yeah, well, let's round it up. Shall we way mentioned moving into the holiday season? What kinds of holiday projects do you have on the site? Right now? People want to dig into something. So you know, for Halloween. We had a really popular one with socially distance treat board that you could actually build really quickly And you could put it out on your front stoop not allow kids come up and get candy without you having to actually. He ended to them, and that was really popular. And then, of course, that Christmas and Hanako, we have a variety of different projects, including some ornamental wall hangings and other things that are really cool. People enjoyed building a super easy to take these on with these instructions because you pretty much you know, Start with the entire tool, materialist. Then you have photos prove it every step of the way so great job on this. Let's talk about some of the tools that you might be having come out for the holiday season is, I think nothing makes a great holiday gift like another safe or glue gun or one of your other products. You guys really make them very well. You're singing our song There exactly got one that that is becoming very popular. Right now. It's our GT 300 glue gun. Glue. Guns are always big around the holidays because there's lots of crafting and decor projects that you can do with them. And the GT 300 this year was named by Popular Mechanics magazine as the best glue gun of 2020. As you may know, they test around 1000 products a year and then they release about 50 that they feel to be best in class and our groove on the GT 300 solicitous best clean on this year. I have used this particular glue gun very recently because My sister and I built a bottle cap table for my nephew when he went back to college, and I needed a glue gun that I could do a lot of glowing with, and I had had a small one before that, But this is like, you know, this is the big mama the same work so well. It's so easy to distribute Just a clue where you want it and even has a flow control on it. Which is the first time I've ever seen that on the glue gun, because, you know, Leslie, it always gets really messy and you end up Getting on your hands and everywhere else you don't want to pay for sure you get it on your hands, and that's a fact. It's super hat. I always I know. I say this all the time. But I always keep a little dish of ice water, like right nearby. What? I'm using a hot glue gun. Because I want to make sure should I get it on my finger and go right into the ice water and immediately cools that spot of glue, and then I could just peel it off without being like Woz. I'm shaking my hand and just burn. So that would be really popular around the holidays because it could help you with what you're decorating craft projects. What about in the stable area in the stable area? You know, we have our perennial favorites than he 50 staple gun is still the best selling staple.

"Better this is the money home improvement show I'm Tom Chrysler and I'm Leslie sobriety whatever you're working on we want to pitch in and give us a call right now at one eight eight eight money Pat says when I was on the line with a wallpaper conundrum what's going on in your money pit well I have a probably twenty four year old town home that I think the paper has been on the wall since for that long it was popular back then yeah yeah back then I'm just wondering person I had in here tried to wear the wallpaper but come against the ceiling there's six looks like a bad job and there's some marks and he thought he could wipe it down and everywhere he wiped it down there is like a wire mark all along where he looks like icicles yeah I don't even blind by America and I don't know if they can I've been told you can paint over it I mean we have vaulted ceilings it's a lot of paper and I don't know how you would if but they took it off there's actually some posts papered with it and I don't know what's underneath I think the answer is you can't remove it it's a lot of work with any type of wallpaper right but if you want to paint over it it's going to look like the wall tech writer means gonna look textured underneath if you want to do like a really inexpensive short term fix you could paint over it I would recommend the use of very thick roller on that because otherwise it's gonna be very hard to get the pain and word has to go and maybe you might even need to use a slanted roller the kind of role that we use a textured ceiling has actually sort of slots in it because it really gets in around and thick and and and will sort of fill out the whole surface with pain is it terribly difficult to remove it depends on how long it's been there what the prep process was to the wall below the paper I mean all of those can add up to an easy job or a tremendously difficult job and it's one of those things that you don't know until you try and you know there are ways to do it now with a textured wall covering like this whether it's grass cloth where the string cloth you can try to use you know a store bought wallpaper remover you can use a steamer you can do homemade concoctions one is white vinegar and hot water the other is fabric softener and hot water both situations you super saturate the walls and just sort of let it sit there for a few minutes I've even heard of clothing starch with hot water and making a paste onto the wall paper and I've used the fabric softener and that does work that is a traditional vinyl which I had to score first but I've also heard with grass faucet you can take a paint scraper and scrape the actual string class of the grass cloth off of backing so that might make it easier to remove either way it's going to be a lot of work and you never know what's behind it you can get everything off and the wall could be so textured and didn't up that you end up having to put a layer of drywall over it anyway okay all right well thank you very much that's very helpful and I'm glad I called well no doubt some home improvements because the bundle but you'd be surprised to know how many you can deliver a pretty big impact at a fraction of the cost including seven informal upgrades you can do with less than a.

"The money that home improvement show on Tom Chrysler and I'm Leslie spreading what are you working on it at your home you're in exactly the right place we'd love to talk about projects that you'd like to get done give you some tips and ideas and inspiration to avoid the perspiration that you will go through with those projects of calls right now at one eight eight eight money pit Louis you've got the money but how could help you today I have a question regarding day some Cheney's water the previous owner has it routed to the sewer line going to the bathroom in the basement as for the sump pump is also and I was wanting should I re route that to the outside of the house version is it okay where it is well you're certainly not supposed to connect a sump pump to a sewer line your correct and that's supposed to go out the side the house part of the issue is that if you don't have a check valve for sure if you have any back up in the sewer it come right straight back up into the sump pump and that's not to be a pleasant situation so it would be preferable they drained outside and and at least four to six feet away from your foundation of your home so it doesn't drop water back against the foundation wall well I did put a check valve and I put a heavy duty sump pump in it and it requires you to put a check valve unit which I did and not bad but that they put a flex those from there to the server line into the wall and and I'm not comfortable with that night I didn't think it should go there but thanks for intentional I'll take care of that you are correct so make sure you repair the mission repair the sewer line when you pull that house out okay I will do that thank you very much good luck with the project thanks so much for calling us at eight eight eight money pit well with an aging electrical grid in severe weather seemingly more prevalent than ever getting caught without power is becoming a lot more common now generators are an option for the type all depends on your budget and your needs so there are two basic types are talking about portable and whole house in each serves a very specific purpose that's reserves let's start first we're talking a portable generators are really have come a long way they're usually gasoline powered but they can also be propane powered there's a range of power that they provide the small units can power just a couple of essential items like perhaps refrigerator and lights they can also be taken sort of to go places like campsites Intel gazing you'll more use out of him the pros side is at the very affordable they're small you can take it with you but on the downside you need fuel to operate them safely and if you have a power outage in your community chances are you may not be able to buy fuel at the local gas station which will also have a power outage and I'll be able to pump it so it's something to keep in mind because you can't store fuel for a very long time we also offer a portable transfer switch to plug them into which means you can have a couple circuits permanently wired to the generator makes a little bit easier just to run those circuits like for example the circuit for heating system might be one that you would want to wire with it but again it's a lot more hassle then than you think because you got to have the fuel to run it right now there's also a whole house option now a whole house generator these guys are installed directly into your home's electrical system and they can run on natural gas or propane and they're tied directly into your homes fuel source and they can power the entire house in seconds when the power goes out now these guys use an automatic transfer switch which monitors your utility power when it goes out that automatic transfer switch turns on the generator automatically whether your home or not and it will automatically turn off the generator when the power is restored I mean the other day actually few weeks so we had like the first snow storm on the east coast for us I am on you hours before the snows from receiving coming my power went off and on off and on off and on probably four times that morning and I'm like it's not even snowing at but we never missed a beat and that's the benefit of having the whole house generator you don't need to think about it see for you not storing any fuel you don't have to run extension cords and it's good for outages even when you're not home and you're not able to hook up a portable unit now the downside with the whole home generators are they can be expensive you might not be able to recoup your investment if you sell your home although I mean personally I think it's an excellent selling feature absolutely I definitely think it is we're seeing more and more homes that have them in citrus thing you know when you go to say like sports games like when my kids were playing playing high school sports and all the parents were hanging out watch the games watching practice the conversations that people have ready for storm I cannot tell you how many times and I was just what was bring this up but I'm just listening how many people were talking about buying a whole house generator so I didn't think about it until they were out of power for a few days all of a sudden becomes a priority so what happened you it's a really good investment the price of come down and it's just a smart thing to do that scene in Michigan online wants to talk about reducing energy because how can I help you is there a way to lower your electric bills by generating your own electricity I've heard of solar panels and windmills and seems like they cost a lot of money to get I'm going and I'm wondering is it actually usable financially you do something like that well first of all the most effective way to cut those energy costs and especially for talking about heating and cooling energy is to improve the energy efficiency of your home and the single most important where easiest way to do that is by improving insulation it's amazing how many people simply don't have enough insulation in the state like Michigan you certainly don't want to have fifteen to twenty inches of insulation your attic don't ask your question about generate your own power there are some programs that are run by state governments and by utility suppliers that include different sorts of rebates and different sorts of of of purchase when was the scheme what sort of plans for getting that equipment your house so for example in my part of the country they have offers where you don't actually pay for the initial installation there you partner with energy company that does the installation of solar panels and then as the is it generates energy you get to keep some of that and some of that goes back to the utility company eventually it pays off the cost of that installations I would investigate sewer programs in your area and really it's that might be available start with utility companies and go from there because if there's a favorable program that's the only way they some cost effective you are correct in that a lot of these things are very expensive and don't make a lot of economic sense but if there's rebate money available either locally at the state level or federally it does make sense okay so you would just call your energy company then I would start there with your chili con there's simply do some research online for rebates that are available in your area okay Cindy all right thank you very welcome good luck with the project give us a call any time with your home repair home improvement question twenty four seven right here at eight eight eight money do you think you don't have the time to be a D. I. wire well think again we highlight home repairs that you can complete in thirty minutes or less after the I'm sure concrete projects are quick and easy with quick creek fastening concrete mix and the red bag it's great for setting fence posts a mailbox and Jack footings or even a small slab quickly fastening concrete in the red bag makes setting pose quick and easy there's no mixing just pour the dry mix into the hole and soaked with water it sets harden twenty to forty minutes it's that quick and easy you'll find quick creek fastening concrete mix at home improvement stores look for it in the red bag our engineer Jim concerts a lot of stuff but when.

"Making it all better this is the money pit home improvement show on Tom Chrysler and I'm Leslie said reading what are you working on it at your house you're in exactly the right place because we are here to help you with those projects calls right now at one eight eight eight money if it for you can sense a question via money Kay dot com and that's what he did who's looking into buying a home in a neighborhood that has a lot of prefab houses that's right now okay rates I'm considering buying a home in a neighborhood that seems to be mainly prefab housing are there any drawbacks to owning modular you know when I first got it home inspection out a case you run your pre fab house I had some of the same concerns but the more I looked into them and the more of wash the industry as time is going on I I really think that they're actually build better this stick built homes and here's why because the factory built there's better control over the materials and the accuracy and the fashion points that really are making all the difference when you're putting a house together so I just think that prefabricated homes with their mostly built in a factory and then assembled on site by usually a builder that has experience with them it's not the kind of thing that are built like a one off builder does Julie somebody specializes in prefabricated homes they come out on a truck and is the most amazing thing is a lesson when you see them lift gate wall sections for massive section yeah right or complete roof sections are into a house and brought together you know ones or chunk at a time but you're so right I mean everything is built in a temperature and climate controlled environments you don't have to worry about things getting slow down because of bad weather or materials being soaked it's just so much smarter to do so yeah I agree now like those stick built homes when you see the outside all being pretty gazing up I must be moving in next week well not so fast it does take you know a little more time to get all the internal stuff done so they may go together a little faster but I don't necessarily think that would be the only reason to use a prefab home I think usually because you can control the quality and there's a lot of design flexibility to it's not like they're cookie cutter houses we only have a in a small number of choices you pretty much have all the flexibility you need because once at home is is design then you know the engineers the computer problems go to work and basically spell out everything has to be the symbol then it's out there to your site in a pretty short time but after goes together so the plumbing wiring you know lighting and so on painting all that stuff is still done very much manually although I will say that some of that sometimes the pre wiring the pre plumbing you can be done it really depends on what options are available from the builder but bottom line is K. I think they're great houses and all things that any concerns about purchasing a pre fab home all right next up we've got a post here from Lauren now Laura rights I can get hot water out of my bath tub faucet if I take a bath but I have no hot water out of the shower head I've got water pressure just water that's not hot any ideas about the problem well the only way that can be happening is if the divert or valve has failed enough that mixing valve that mixes hot and cold and sends it off the shower pipe basically and how the shower head the fact you're getting water out of the shower head means not clog the fact that you're getting hot water in the tub spout means wars get that far she's not getting up out of the shower so I think you got a bad burger valves you're gonna need to get a plumber in there to fix that lore you know it shouldn't be a difficult project should mean expensive project I would go to home advisor dot com and find a contractor that's.

"On Tom Chrysler and happy new year. It is that time of year when we get to kick off we get to rejoice about everything we got done this past year. But we also you the kickoff our projects or at least plan them for the year ahead. And I've been thinking a lot about what I want to take on a mind money pit. And I think that this is the year Leslie that we're going to do the kitchen. Are you really is not an easy kitchen? Now, I gotta tell you because you know, have a really old house and they've got a really weird shape to the kitchen. Cousin the stairs of the basement kind of goes through the middle that sort of in a way, it's kind of like an L shape kitchen the floor is grossly out of level. As most homes that are. You know at this age right are so and it's got up not a very tall ceiling. So I kind of think about whether or not what I'm gonna do. I do I want to level the Florida wanna add onto it. Do. I want to take away kind of drop it down to the level of do. I wanna use a level in congress. Yourself. Are you gonna hire out parts? No, I think I'll do most of this myself. I'm kind of thinking of the structural mechanical side of it. And I haven't even thought about the design yet.
