Doing Tile with Bondera

Bondera Tile-mat is a self-bonding sheet membrane that eliminates thinset mortar or mastic when doing tile work. It is very easy to use, all you have to do is peel the plastic shield on the back side and press it down, it bonds immediately to almost any surface. Then you apply tile to the surface by simply peeling the protective plastic on the front starting from the corner, and apply the tile, once tile is aligned, press harder for the stronger bond. The product is still new, not many contractors used it yet, but for DIY project is a nice try, especially when doing a smaller area like a back splash,etc.

New House Construction Update

It's been a few busy weeks, I didn't have time to make an update about New Home Construction. Things been progressing nicely considering the Holidays and rains we had during which the work was stopped. But now it's back on the roll and moving. Here is a few more updates.

Rough framing is completed. Today roof is being delivered to the job. They will start the roofing installation on Monday and they should complete the job the same day. Windows already waiting to be delivered, stairs will be delivered the beginning of next week. Tuesday basement and garage slab will be prepped for inspection and on Wednesday if it stay dry concrete slabs will be poured. So it looks like I will have a busy week.
Enjoy the weekend and I will keep this updated.

Stainless Steel Sinks with PermaDrain

This week we remodeled a kitchen, and we used a new sink with PermaDrain. This is a new new stainless steel sink made by Lenova company. They included PermaClean Drain System in to theirs sink design. The drain its self is a removable splash guards which is can be washed in the dishwasher dishwasher and it has a  strainer basket that seals to the drain fitting and the garbage disposal. Real neat design and the sink has a neat design and it makes a nice addition to any kitchen.
