SHOW NOTES: Today, we explore a special type of roof that helps keep your home cool. We'll also discuss the buzz around backyard honeybee hives and, if you're hosting an open house, how to stage your home to attract buyers. Whether it's a renovation, repair, or home décor, listen in for more expert tips and inspiration to help with your next home improvement project! - Bee Hives: Backyard bee hives are all the buzzy for producing homemade honey and beeswax. - Cool Roofs: Keep cool and save on energy costs with cool roof technology. - Home Staging: Market your home to interested buyers with these important home staging tips. Q & A: - Lighting: Pete wants to install can lights on the first floor. An electrician would be more experienced in fishing wiring through the ceiling, laying out the lights, and getting power to the lines and switches. - Siding: What is the best way to seal and protect cedar siding on Lynne’s old house? Boiled linseed oil or a solid color stain are two good options for UV and weather protection. - Level Flooring: A crack in the concrete slab has widened and the floor is dipping. Rachel needs a structural engineer to see if it’s a structural or cosmetic issue. - Busted Plumbing: A rogue raccoon busted the water line! We advise Brian to hire a public adjuster to have the repairs covered by insurance and done correctly. - Basement Water: Mary paid a lot of money to a shameless contractor after getting water in her basement. We offer tips on improving the exterior drainage to keep things dry. - Dimmer Lights: Richard is looking for a floor or table lamp with a dimmer switch. He can buy a regular lamp instead and plug it into a dimmer switch outlet. ASK A QUESTION: Need help with your own home improvement or décor question? We’d love to help!
