  • Can i paint my bathtub with normal paint?

    A huge part of the paint chipped off of my bathtub and I want to repaint it but I can't afford to get it professionally done and my apt management won't do it.

    A huge part of the paint chipped off of my bathtub and I want to repaint it but I can't afford to get it professionally done and my apt management won't do it. I was thinking I could use normal spray paint and a coat of something waterproof on top. How long would this last? I only have the lease at my apartment for about 8 months so it doesn't need to last long .

  • When installing recessed cans in a new home is it the electrician or the carpenters responsibility to box out (header) ceiling joist?

    for example one joist runs right in line with center kitchen window and living room so the cans will be off from the island which of course will be centered with the middle window and they will be visibly off by about 4 inches from from the ceiling fan in the living area

I have no doorways appropriate for it, its got to go in the middle of the ceiling in the living room.

  • How much did you pay for blackout shades?

    Best answer: Shades are very expensive and there is no real good reason why they should be. I know, it is crazy how they are priced. We had shades on the windows.

    Best answer: Shades are very expensive and there is no real good reason why they should be. I know, it is crazy how they are priced.

    We had shades on the windows. The furnace puffed back and spread soot all over the house. The furnace company's insurance company paid for all new blinds. The cost for 9 double cell blinds (approx. 50"wide x 42" long) was EIGHT GRAND, yes $8,000.00. Its not like it is new technology or remotely controlled, we are talking about draw string blinds in off white, not even black out shades!!

    Go on the internet and google "Discount Blinds" to comparison shop.

    You may be better off having draperies made with lined black out lining.

  • $17K to remodel small bathroom?

    Best answer: Believe it or not, that is the going rate. My client just gutted her bathroom and replaced everything in her condo. A small bathroom, like yours; and she paid $27K...however, she did tile the floor, the shower area and had a decorative tile boarder go around the room. I was shocked to realize how much she spent.... show more
    Best answer: Believe it or not, that is the going rate. My client just gutted her bathroom and replaced everything in her condo. A small bathroom, like yours; and she paid $27K...however, she did tile the floor, the shower area and had a decorative tile boarder go around the room. I was shocked to realize how much she spent. I helped her pick the tile only as she asked my opinion when I was decorating another room in her home.

    I would never spend that amount on a bathroom. I would ask for a detailed list of the cost breakdown. If you are in control of researching your fixtures (lights, toilet, sink, faucets, vanity and shower/tub) you can get better bargains. The people who remodel your bathroom do not bargain shop for you, they get what they can when they can get it and mark it up just for handling it. I would get more quotes and even consider a handy man. I mean really, you are keeping all the plumbing right where it sits, right? Do yourself a favor and just research how much things really do cost. You do not need to spend over 20% of the value in your house on a small bathroom.

    Be resourceful.
