If you own a home and have a project your thinking of, you may need a contractor, BUT you run a risk of being scammed by a fraudulent one. Contractor fraud in the home improvement industry is one of the most complained about industries at the Better Business Bureau. If you think fraud victims are just little old ladies, think again. Some unscrupulous contractors can be so clever that it makes them a hazard to all of us.

Be careful of the so-called “free” inspection or “my crew is in the neighborhood on another job”. They seem to have extra materials left over and want to offer you a great discounted price, so they offer a free inspection and guess what? You need work done! The chances are the materials aren’t the best, the workmanship is going to be shabby and the price he gives you will be so good you won’t be able to pass it up. Oh and I almost forgot, you probably don’t need any work done at all!

Things To Look For When Hiring A Contractor:
Check the contractor for a license and insurance
Get references of his previous jobs
Check with The Better Business Bureau for any complaints against his company
Get at least 3 estimates from other contractors

The good guys
The vast majority of home contractors are honest, reputable small-business owners who work hard to make sure that they do high quality work, use good materials. They are dedicated to your satisfaction and earnestly want to earn your recommendation. Many contractors are members of professional organizations or unions that actively work to weed out contractor scams and fraud.

By doing your part to protect yourself, you can prevent getting taken by clever, manipulative contractors.

L2LL Hiring Home Contractor

Before you add that deck or put in that new air conditioner, know how to avoid the common mistakes people make when hiring a home contractor.

To find the best Gardening dublin company, click here for Leaf 2 Leaf Landscapes.
Have you ever had a problem with a home contractor? You’re not alone. A friend of mine paid over seven thousand dollars to have his roof repaired, only to have it leak the next time it rained. The contractor made excuses, but never did a thing about it – and my friend was an attorney! To make situations like this less likely, avoid the following mistakes when hiring a contractor.

1. Not being clear about what you want. When you don’t know what you want, you might not like what you get. If you change your mind and change the job halfway through, the contract – and price – will change. Hint: it won’t get cheaper. Be clear on what you want done.

2. Not getting it in writing. Hearing “I didn’t say I was going to include the gutters,” could be a problem, or you could point to the contract.

3. No dates in the contract. Do you want the job finished this year? Be sure you have it in the contract.

4. Too much money up front. Deposits are a reasonable request when contracts are signed. The home contractor may need money for materials prior to the start date. But never pay in full before the job is finished.

5. Unlicensed contractors. This can be okay, if you know what you are doing (and he does). A license doesn’t mean you get expertise, but it does mean you get leverage. Contractors will right their wrongs to avoid losing that license.

6. Hiring the first in the phone book. Talk to friends who had work done, or to the owner of a hardware store. Get a recommendation based on a similar job to yours.

7. Assuming there will be no problems. Delays due to weather, employees quitting, and more will happen. A few problems is okay, but it’s not okay if the contractor can’t work out the issues to your satisfaction.

8. Expecting neatness. Guess what? It is sometimes more efficient to leave things laying where they’ll next be used. There will be messes, so prepare accordingly. Cover up things if it will be a dusty job, for example. Also be clear in the contract that the jobsite will be cleaned up at the end of the job.

9. No penalties in the contract. It’s one thing for a contract to say “Work to be completed by May 2nd.” That helps, but it’s better to add, “$100 per day to be deducted from the contract price for each day the job is unfinished beyond May 2nd. It’s what I call a motivational clause.

10. Thinking contracts eliminate problems. Contracts help, but unreasonable people on either side of a contract can ignore them, or even use “literal readings” to make things worse. Find a home contractor you can work with, and keep your eyes open.

A very smart attorney I know paid $7,000 for a roof repair, only to have the roof leak the next time it rained. The contractor stalled, made excuses, but never did a thing about it. Anyone can have these kinds of problems when having repairs or improvements done, but to make it less likely, avoid the folowing mistakes when hiring a contractor.

1. Not knowing what you want. If you don’t know what you want, you might not like what you get. Also, if you change your mind and change the job halfway through, the contract – and price – have changed (Hint: it won’t get cheaper). Know clearly what you want done.

2. Not getting everything in writing. You don’t want to hear, “I didn’t say I was going to include the gutters.”

3. Not having dates in the contract. Did you want it finished this year? You better have it in the contract.

4. Paying too much up front. A deposit may be a reasonable request when the contract is signed, and money for materials prior to the start date. Never pay in full before the job is finished.

5. Hiring unlicensed contractors. Actually, this can be okay, if you know what you are doing (and he does). The license doesn’t mean you get expertise, but it does mean you get leverage. A contractor will right his wrongs to avoid losing that license.

6. Hiring the first one in the phone book. Ask friends who had work done, or the owner of a hardware store. Find a recommendation based on a similar job to yours.

7. Thinking there will be no problems. Weather delays, employees quitting, and more will happen. Having problems is okay, but it’s not okay if the contractor can’t work out the issues to your satisfaction.

8. Expecting neatness. Believe it or not, it is sometimes efficient to leave things laying where they’ll next be used. There will be messes, so prepare accordingly. Cover things if it will be a dusty job, for example. Also be clear in the contract that the jobsite will be cleaned up at the end of the job.

9. Not having penalties in the contract. This is important on large jobs. It’s one thing to say “Work to be completed by May 2nd,” but better to add, “$100 per day to be deducted from the contract price for each day the job is unfinished beyond May 2nd.” That’s what I call a motivational clause.

10. Thinking contracts will prevent problems. They help, but unreasonable people on either side of a contract can ignore them, or use “literal readings” to make things even worse. Find someone you can work with, and keep your eyes open.

Did you know that home owner insurance policies are generally higher for those of us who live in high risk areas than for those of us who don t? It s true. The two major high risk factors that can cause your insurance rates to be higher than normal are weather and crime.

Living in an area that is commonly afflicted with dangerous weather elements such as hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms, and earthquakes can cause your insurance rates to be much higher than the rates of someone who does not live in an area prone to that kind of weather. If you live in an area that is commonly affected by severe weather, your insurance company knows that your home is at risk for much more damage than the homes of people who do not live in those kinds of areas.

Living in an area that is commonly afflicted with crime such as vandalism and theft can cause your insurance rates to be much higher than the rates of someone who does not live in and area prone to that kind of crime. If you live in an area that is commonly affected by crimes such as theft and vandalism, your insurance company knows that your home and your possessions are at risk for much more damage and property loss than the homes and possessions of people who do not live in those kinds of areas.

Home owner insurance does not just cover the cost of repairing or replacing your home; it also covers the cost of repairing or replacing the valuables within your home that are insured. If you live in an area that is prone to severely damaging weather or an area that increases the risk of your home being vandalized and your possessions being stolen, your home owner insurance rates are going to be much higher than the rates of people who do not live in those high risk areas.

L2LL Hide Your Floors

Leather flooring is one of the most luxurious and decadent flooring imaginable. Walk bare-foot and the surface immediately adjusts to your body temperature. It feels warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Leather flooring is one of the most luxurious and decadent flooring imaginable. Walk bare-foot and the surface immediately adjusts to your body temperature. It feels warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also, never loses that wonderful, pleasing leather scent. Over time, the increased wear creates the appearance of rich patina, or the look that gives leather its unique character.

Leather tiles are available in a myriad of earthy colors as well as custom shades, inlay, laser engraving and embossing. They are approximately 1/8″ thick and come in all sizes. Go for the standard 12″x12″, 24″x24″ or go for decorative borders, inserts, herringbone patters or custom layouts. Design choices are limited only by your imagination.

In addition to flooring, leather makes a luxurious covering for wall paneling or even crown molding. The styles range from traditional and sophisticated, to modern and contemporary.

Leather tiles work well in most areas of the house, adding a rich and inviting feel to a dining room or living room. They create a warm and relaxing atmosphere in a sitting room or library, and work well in media rooms because leather is great for sound control. The comfort of walking barefoot on these floors makes it a popular choice for the bedroom. Installation in the kitchen or bathroom is not suggested, due to the large amount of moisture, and harsh cleaners the tiles would be subjected to.

Maintenance

When first installed, the tiles require an initial coating of paste wax followed by two or three coats of bowling alley wax. It s very important to apply the paste wax first or you may get a white haze on the leather. Subsequent tile maintenance is fairly easy; consisting of a regular dry dust mopping and intermittent damp mopping for general cleaning. Spills should be wiped up immediately to avoid any build of moisture for an extended period of time.

Things to avoid

Never wax leather wall tiles.

Refrain from using abrasive cleaners, soap, furniture polish, varnish, solvent, ammonia products, or wax containing a high concentration of Carnauba.

Never place rubber backed or non-ventilated rugs, rug padding or mats on top of the leather.

Exposing the tiles to direct sunlight for extended periods of time may cause fading or color variations.

Installation
Leather tiles can be glued to any wood or concrete surface. Painted or treated floors need to be sanded or roughed up prior to installation to ensure the glue will adhere to the surface. Floors need to be clean, level, with any cracks filled and sanded. Just one grain of sand will surface under the tile, making it appear larger.

The glue should be a non-flammable water based adhesive applied to both the back of the tile and the floor. Once it has dried to the touch, it can be pressed in place. Leather tiles are prone to curling and shrinkage, so it s imperative the tiles are stuck extremely tight.

L2LL Hidden Hazards In Pools And Hot Tubs

As more kids enjoy the warm weather with a dip in the pool, it’s important for parents to be on guard against one of the leading causes of accidental death in children: drowning.


Hidden Hazards In Pools And Hot Tubs

To find the best Gardening dublin company, click here for Leaf 2 Leaf Landscapes.
As more kids enjoy the warm weather with a dip in the pool, it’s important for parents to be on guard against one of the leading causes of accidental death in children: drowning. Fortunately, there are a number of ways parents can keep their kids safe-and new legislation may help. The legislation will encourage states to require protection-such as fencing and devices that reduce drain suction-around pools and hot tubs.

Every year there are 2,400 pool-related drownings from various causes among kids aged 1 to 14. Many parents do not realize that one of the most alarming dangers to children in pools and hot tubs is drain entrapment, which occurs when a child’s body or hair gets attached to an underwater drain in a pool or hot tub.

Drowning is the biggest accidental-injury related cause of death among children 1 to 4 in the U.S. It is the second biggest killer of children ages 1 to 14. In 2002 alone, 838 children died as a result of accidental drowning-enough children to fill a small primary school.

Safe Kids Worldwide, with help from Johnson & Johnson, works to teach families how to prevent drain entrapment. They offer these tips:

• Warn children about the dangers of drain entrapment and teach them to stay away from the drain.

• Install equipment to prevent entrapment if you own a pool or hot tub. Protective measures include anti-entrapment drain covers, multiple drains in new construction and a device to automatically release the suction and shut down the pump, should entrapment occur.

• Actively supervise children around water and have a phone nearby to call for help in an emergency.

• Ensure your pool has four-sided fencing. It is estimated that proper installation and use of four-sided fencing could prevent 50 to 90 percent of all childhood residential swimming pool drownings or near drownings. Also use a self-closing, self-latching gate to prevent a child from wandering into the pool area unsupervised. Hot tubs should be covered and locked when not in use.

• Install a door alarm, a window alarm or both to alert you if a child wanders into the pool area unsupervised.

Purchasing furniture online can be a very fun and rewarding adventure. You don t have to waste all day in mall traffic and only going to a handful of stores. You can shop in the comfort of your own home without the pressure of pushy sales people. You can literally see hundreds of items in a very short time.

We want to make your online shopping experience as rewarding as possible. Here are a few things to consider when making your purchase to avoid the pitfalls of shopping online.

View Pictures Carefully
Sometimes it s hard to tell exactly what color an item is online. Everyone s monitor shows colors differently, so take that into consideration when buying furniture. Are the colors of the fabric truly that color? When spending a large amount of money, it s imperative that you know that before you make a purchase. Some vendors may have fabric swatches that you can request and view before making a purchase. It is important to be sure about your purchase as many vendors charge a restocking fee and shipping if you want to return an item that you are not satisfied with.

Construction of Your New Furniture
You ll want to be sure to know what materials are used to build the furniture. Some furniture is made from synthetic materials, while other furniture is made from wood, metal or other material. It doesn t necessarily matter what your furniture is made of as long as you know that it is of good quality. If you need something that will become a family heirloom, it s helpful to check out online forums to see if anyone else knows about the manufacturer of the furniture you are buying.

Additional Options
Online retailers cannot always put every option that is available for furniture on their websites. Some furniture comes in many different styles, shapes and sizes. You may have a plethora of options available to you, but not see them online. Be sure to ask if the furniture that you are buying comes in any other variations. Many times you can choose the leather, fabric and even a different style for each piece.

Be Aware of Shipping Times
When you buy furniture online, you need to find out exactly when it will ship, especially if you are pressed for time. Some items can be express shipped if needed. Other items may be coming from China and will not arrive for 2-3 months. Find out ahead of time in order to avoid frustration. Many online retailers can contact their vendor before you purchase an item to be sure that it is in stock. Some may even have the furniture in stock at their warehouse. If it says 2-3 weeks for delivery and you absolutely must have it in that time frame, a quick call or email to verify this will alleviate a lot of headaches in the long run.

Paying Extra for Delivery
How much will it cost to have your new furniture delivered? Most companies have to ship furniture via freight. This means a tractor trailer must deliver your furniture. Will you have to pay extra for the truck driver to unload your furniture? Most freight companies charge extra for the driver to handle the freight. When the trucking company calls to make arrangements for delivery, you will want to be sure and ask them about additional fees associated with unloading your furniture.

Furniture Care
Make sure that you find out the best way to care for your new furniture. Leather will need to be treated differently than fabric. Some furniture may require that you wax, reseal or do some other maintenance to it to keep it looking great for years to come.

Enjoying Your New Furniture
Once you have picked out your new furniture, purchased it and had it delivered, then you can enjoy it. There s no better way to enjoy your new furniture than with your friends and family. By doing some homework and asking questions before you make your purchase, you can be assured that you will not have any unwanted surprises when it arrives.

So, you ve finally decided to get rid of that hand me down comforter that your mom gave you ten years ago. Now, you have to decide which comforter is the right one for you. Simple, right? Actually, there are so many types of comforters that shopping for the best one for your home can actually be a bit overwhelming. Why not take a look at a few of these comforter buying tips before you head to the store?

The first thing you should consider when you are shopping for a comforter is whether you actually want an entire new bed set. A bed in a bag is an economical way to change the look of your bedroom when you are on a budget. These bed sets typically include a comforter, a top sheet, a bottom sheet, a pillow case, and decorative pillow shams. Some also include a bed skirt. As you shop for a bed in a bag, keep in mind that they usually are not the best quality. The sheets can be quite rough and the comforters often have poor stitching.

If you just want a comforter, you will need to decide whether you prefer a down filled comforter or whether a comforter made with satin, silk, velvet, suede, or cotton is a better fit for you. All of these comforters will keep you snug and warm at night, but there are a few differences.

Before you buy a down filled comforter, you should be sure to check the care tag to see if the comforter needs to be dry cleaned. Of course, if the comforter is too bulky, you may not be able to fit it in your washing machine anyway; but it s nice to have other options. Another thing you should look for is information on whether the down filling in the comforter is hypoallergenic. Many manufacturers now clean down to remove allergens and dirt before they use it. If you like the feel of down but you are concerned about having to care for a down comforter, you may want to look at another option the synthetic down comforter.

If you prefer to shop for satin, silk, velvet, or suede comforters, you should also take a close look at the care instructions. Many of these comforters will need to be dry cleaned, while most cotton comforters are machine washable.

Finally, for some of the best deals and the widest selection, you may not want to head to your local store at all. Shopping for comforters online is a convenient and easy alternative to searching for the right comforter in traditional brick and mortar stores.
