Making The Best Of Your Home: How To Do Home Improvement


Dollikin Repair--before by toomanypictures1


Floors are not infinitely durable. Time and water, even heavy weight, can weaken a sturdy built floor. No matter what the reason, the damaged floor needs replaced before someone gets hurt or bad seasonal weather blows in.

But who has the money to pay a contractor a few hundred, possibly thousands, of dollars for repair work? Is there any need to take another mortgage on the house because the floor needs fixed?

There is another alternative besides leaving it alone till 'someday'. The floor, in whole or in part, can be replaced by you and all it takes is elbow grease and planning. Anyone that knows how to swing a hammer and run a circular saw, or is willing to learn, can replace or repair a floor.

Following simple guidelines takes the guess work out of project planning.

Preventing wood waste from occurring through missteps, and the waste of time that goes with it, the time it takes to glance at the diagram is time spent saving money!

Hammer, size 8- 10 nails or 2-2 ½ decking screws with drill and drill bit, circular saw with new blade, regular screw driver, measure tape, sufficient ¾ inch plywood and 2x4 boards, chalk line, carpenter square, carpenter pencil or marker and paper is the main equipment needed. Other options include a pry bar, safety glasses, jigsaw or chisel and gloves.

Project note:
1. If your new floor boards have the dove-tailed edge, you should put this edge under the wall.

2. Please remember to prepare for any extra work, such as for drain pipes, water pipes or heating and cooling vents. None of these items are going to cause much fuss to a person that is naturally organized, for the rest of us there is Post-its.

Before destroying the original floor, sketch the area and note distance between various points. It is a good idea to square the area that you will be cutting, since it is easier to 1- put a square in a square hole and 2- it is easier to prevent a wrong cut than it is to fix one.

3. You should never hit the flooring board directly. A section of a two by four should be used between the hammer and the floor-board edging. This keeps the board's edge from breaking, and also gives you a larger target area to catch the force of your swing.

4. The amount of time needed depends on many things, so I recommend planning ahead of time what you are going to do during the floor's down time. This is mainly a concern when it is the flooring around the toilet that needs repaired or if there is small children to consider.

5. The diagram provided is only a representation of what you should be seeing. It is not made to scale. So please do not think that eight squares by four squares equal a four by eight board. A square is only for thought display, not for measurement display!

To begin, the decision of how much flooring material to remove must be made. The part to be removed should include the entire damaged area. If there is two relatively close areas, it should be treated as one area - not two! See Diagram 1.

If the damaged section is adjacent to a wall, use the wall as a base line. The base line is where the project mathematically begins. Otherwise, choose and mark your base line, and as a rule, keep it square with the wall. The best way to achieve this is by measuring from the wall to a desired baseline point, then another point a few inches over to the side. Both measurements need to be made using the square, not only for distance but for squaring! Lay the flat edge of the carpenters square between the two points and draw a line running along that edge. See Diagram 2.

Using the carpenter's square, mark the perpendicular lines on the baseline at the desired width, and finish by running the line parallel to the base line at the desired length. Diagram 3. Double check all marks before going on.

The circular saw should be set to a straight angle at three-quarters of an inch. Please keep in mind that your floor depth may be slightly different, and should be adjusted as such.

Cut along the marked lines, and a wall fault cut (a cut close to the wall) if necessary to begin the extradition of the damaged wood. Pry up the damaged piece and discard.

As for inspecting floor integrity, check the support beams for signs of breakage or decay. In most cases, the beam is fine for future use, but beams of less quality should be sandwiched between bracing beams. Diagram 4.

If you are not working with a walled side, proceed by placing braces half and half under all open edges. As long as you have used the square properly, quick cuts result in a perfect template for dropping into place. Hammer down securely. Diagram 5.

If there is a wall fault cut, the floor boarding that remains next to and underneath the wall needs to be removed. Depending on the type of damage the wood has sustained, chiseling and prying at the wood can be soft or rigorous work. Since all space needs to be reclaimed for the new board, you must clean the area under the wall with care. Negligence in this will not only make your measurements off, it will possibly result in a structure integrity problem in the future.

To prevent costly mishaps, draw a simple plan that shows every inch and then use this as a reference. Your arithmetic should look something like width x [length + space that can be used under the wall] = True Baseline. This space under the wall can vary, but usually falls between three/fourths of an inch to one and one-half inches.

The new flooring will give support to the walls. A quick inspection of the wall material will dictate if the wall also needs to be repaired or replaced. Depending on the situation's circumstances, the decision to repair or not rests in your hands.
Toenail in the braces which are placed half-and-half under all edges. See Diagram 5 for overview of half-n-half two by fours used to sturdy the seam.

You will be hitting the board edges in to slide the piece under the wall and into the hole like a puzzle block. With a square and using the preferred edge of the board as the true baseline, mark the new flooring board according to your specifications. Check your calculations twice before sawing.

For a 'straight in' section, slide the board edge under the wall. A few hits with the hammer on the end will force the board into place. If the cut board is slightly off, then you may hit the board until it lays squared in the floor. Nail the corners and down the sides, approximately one nail for every two or three feet. See Diagram 6.

When the damaged area is in the corner, you will have to break the area into two parts. The part one piece will be the floor corner. Place the board under the wall and hit it in until the piece is flat. Hitting it on the side will push it into the corner area. The second piece will be a 'straight hit into place' board. See Diagram 7.

Diagram 8 shows how to put a floor board down in a tricky place like edges under three walls. A single replacement board is bigger than the floor hole is. Splitting the area into two boards would allow only space for one to be installed. Therefore, breaking the area down into set of three boards is the optimum action. Begin with one corner, then the other. The piece in the middle is the last to go into place.

Diagram 9 demonstrates the correct path of rounding a corner. It doesn't matter what piece is used first, as long as the cuts follow this pattern. The only exception to the rule is if the situation has another corner angle involved. If this is the situation, install the corner then the other corner. This should leave you with a 'straight-in' section to finish with.

The completion of floor repair doesn't come when the flooring is laid down. There is a mess to clean up. A magnet hung from a rope and dangled into the piles of sawdust will pick up nails and screws quickly. Hand and power tools need to be safely stored away.

The wood waste can be disposed of by regular refuge pick-up or burning.. However, the wood should not be burned in an indoor fireplace. Treated wood smoke is toxic and should not be inhaled.

We're all done here so what are you waiting for? Get started on the DIY floor fix!

Pazoo, Inc. (PZOO) - Turning Five Hundred dollars Into One Thousand Dollars In A Week? Real Or Bogus - Penny Stock Brokers





This may seem highly unlikely,, but with the latest craze of people getting into penny stock investing; alot of typical, everyday folks have been making some serious coin from only 1 or 2 deals - buying penny stocks that all cost under a share to buy.



I know, it seems a little too fantastic to be true, but you'd be very mistaken if you presume that it just isn't happening day-after-day. You can find tons of businesses whose stock price had dropped to actually pennies per share and in some events fractions of a penny per share, which have made very sharp and volatile rises to levels that are 2, 3 or (seriously) 10 or 20 times that price - literally in days.



It's still hard to believe right?? It will only take a minute to look for one of the common occurrences in the penny stock market - Sunpeaks Ventures, Inc.. (SNPK). Have a shot at typing the ticker symbol into virtually any financial site, Take a look at their historical charts for the past 90 days or so; you'll notice right off that this company's stock was just $.43 a share close to the middle of March, and reached as high as .40 just weeks later. It doesn't take a lot of mathematics to determine that just 0 would've changed into nearly 00 in only a matter of weeks. For this very reason people are generally in a position to leave their day jobs to trade 1 or 2 penny stocks a month, at the same time having the ability to pay all their bills and live easily.



With just a little research and a little bit of keeping your ear to the ground, you can realize nice gains in penny stocks; and it's not your typical long term investment method like when investing in blue chip kind of stocks. The big stock investors can get a %5 increase in a week's time ( This is a terrific week for them), but if you can commit 0 - getting probably would not make you jump for joy... best you can do with that type of gain is go to a movie... by yourself!



The same as with any investment, even penny stock investing has risks, but think of this: if you're able to invest $500 in a penny stock and likely turn that small investment into thousands within weeks (and I don't mean 52 weeks) - the risk/reward ratio weighs tremendously in your benefit. Even so, you can invest in nice "safe" blue chip companies and maybe see a gain of a couple hundred bucks a year.. that's if you don't invest in top of the line blue chips like Tyco, Enron or Adelphia...lol.



Right now, we're paying close attention to Pazoo, Inc. (PZOO). This particular stock went from dormant to trading over 1 million shares as of last Thursday. The price remained constant all day on Thursday, even with the heavy trading (staying at $.10 per share), but then on Friday -things started to change ( the stock closed at $.135 - a 35% gain in One day). At the time of this writing, the stock is continuing to climb today (7/23/12) climbing to just under $.15 per share. The beauty of this company is that it has fundamentals; a good team, good product mix and revenue!

How To Improve Your Home: A Short Guide


Appliance Repair in PRINEVILLE, OR by appliancehub


The kitchen is one if the best places you can invest a little money and see a great return for your efforts. Although $100 does not seem like it could go along way, you would be surprised. Updating your kitchen dramatically can be accomplished for under $100 with one of the most affordable options in any room d├ęcor: paint. Nothing dates a kitchen more than olive green or mustard gold appliances. A little appliance paint will go along way. Although appliance paint may not be the final solution for updating your kitchen, it is a great project that can be done on a minimal budget and you don't have to worry about making your brown 1970's appliances look any worse than they already do.

Appliance paint can be applied to almost any appliance in your kitchen. It works well on everything from the microwave to the refrigerator. Appliance paint comes in heat resistant durable finishes that if applied properly will do a lot to update your kitchen visually.

You can find appliance paint in a variety of applications. I personally have found that spray on appliance paint in a can is the easiest form of this product to use. It sprays on just like a traditional spray paint in a can and dries within 24 hours. Spray can appliance paint eliminates worrying about visible brush strokes and produces an even, smooth, and professional looking coat of paint on your kitchen appliances.

Where to Buy

Appliance paint can be bought local at your home improvement store or hardware store. If you are having trouble locating appliance paint you can find it on line at sources like: www.onecoat.com and www.appliance-warehouse.com. You could also contact local contractors in your area and ask them if they have ever purchased appliance paint before and what their local sources are.

How to Apply

To update your kitchen with appliance paint you will need to first unplugged your appliances and pull them away from the wall. Next, you will need to thoroughly clean the outside surfaces of your kitchen appliances. I suggest an ammonia based cleaner that will dry clean. This is an important step because appliance paint cannot adhere properly if the surface is greasy or grimy. I also recommend painting them outside. This eliminates the need to have to cover every other surface in your kitchen to protect it from the spray on appliance paint.

Now that your appliances are clean you are ready to apply the paint. All appliance paints will have their own directions specific to their product, but generally you can expect to:

1. Make sure you store you appliance paint at room temperature.
2. Shake can vigorously until the agitator ball is heard. Continue shaking up and down for at least three minutes.
3. Apply light even coats. You will want to hold the can of appliance paint about 1 foot away form the surface you are painting.
4. Apply 3-4 coats for the most coverage and protection.
5. Allow 15 minutes between coats.
6. Allow to dry for 24 hours before return appliances to their original positions.

Cost

On average I have found that one can of appliance spray paint will cost you about $19.99. Once can will not go very far though. It should take you about three cans to cover a large refrigerator. One to two cans for a microwave or dishwasher front. If you are going to spray an entire washer or dryer you should allot at least three cans for reach one. To save money on built in appliances you could opt to only paint the visible areas.

Tips

If you are painting a stove or any kitchen appliance that will become hot or exposed to extremely high heat temperatures you need to make sure you purchase heat resistant paint. While appliances like a refrigerator can use almost any appliance type paint, a stove will need a more specific product. You should see heat specifications clearly labeled on the product. If it does not clearly say that it is heat resistance do not use it.

If applying your own appliance paint seems a little to daunting of a DIY home improvement project, you can always hire a professional to apply it. While this will cost you more than $100, it will be a lot less expensive than all new appliances.

Finding Advice For Your Home Appliance Repair Projects


Appliance Brands by Work Hard, Play Hard!


Most consumers would assume that when buying an appliance, or any product, the item should be manufactured well enough that the purchase of a protection agreement should not be necessary. Unfortunately, since we do not live in a perfect world, you may regret your decision not to purchase this item.

I have been in the appliance business for three years. During this time, I have come to believe more and more in protection agreements. So many things can affect an appliance, some of which has nothing to do with its manufacturing. Because not all protection agreements are alike, it is important that you check into the terms of an agreement when you start to shop for your appliances. You should do this even if you do not believe in them. Depending on how honest and knowledgeable your sales associate is, it can make a difference later if something happens to your machine.

One thing that affects the reliability of an appliance is the condition of the company producing the appliance. If a company is going through changes, the quality of an appliance can change. The brand name that was so reliable is no longer. If your salesperson is on the ball, they will be able to let you know of product that may not be as reliable as what you thought. Then you have two choices - avoid that product or protect yourself. Having to deal with the hassle of recalls and class action law suits can often be avoided if you have an agreement. One of my customer's put it quite simply, " It doesn't matter what brand you buy or how much you spend. If the guy on the line is drunk the day they make your appliance, it won't work!" You can substitute "drunk" for several other life altering events: the CEO runs away with the company's money, the company is moving to a country with cheaper labor, family problems, immigrant issues.

In my opinion, name brand manufacturers have strong and weak points in their selection. One may have excellent washers, dryers, and refrigerators, but be weak in cooking and cleanup. Other companies have products that I would never purchase. In our store, where we are required to carry some of these dreadful brands, we dust them, not sell them. Again, if your salesperson is good, they will know what kind of problems customers have experienced that have required service.

Another thing to consider is availability of parts. A particular brand that is now on the market has a very lengthy wait for certain parts. A protection agreement helps if the part is not available, because they may just replace your appliance.

The original manufacturer's warranty is very limited, and is generally for only one year, with longer times for individual parts. For instance, compressor warranties on most brands have changed from five years to one year for defective manufacturing. Make sure you know exactly what is and is not covered by manufacturer's warranties, as well as any no-lemon protection through the store. Labor and parts may be covered for defective manufacturing, but not service calls. Food loss is not covered, nor is damage from power fluctuations. By fluctuations, I am not referring to lightening, but everyday changes in the level of electricity going in and out of your home.

I find that what a lot of people don't understand is that appliances are just not made like they used to be. This is the most noticeable with customers that have an appliance that has lasted 30-40 years. Unfortunately, this is unheard of now. I have had only one appliance to sell that was supposed to last 24 years, and it lasted only six months before there was a class action against this product. Metal drawers in refrigerators are no longer available. Plastic is the name of the game - and so very breakable. Again, another reason to protect yourself. I think that a lot of it is because we, as a society, get bored too quickly. I had one customer that purchases new appliances every three years because she gets bored with them! So, why would we make anything that lasts forever?

When buying appliances, really listen to the salesperson. Ask yourself if they sound excited by the products they are selling. Do they give you only bits and pieces of information, or do they try to teach you so that you feel comfortable making a decision? Unfortunately, sometimes whether a salesperson is commissioned or not, can make a difference in the time they spend with you. Do they push you into a sale that your gut disagrees with? Do they sound like they believe in their product and the need for agreements on certain products?

Before discussing protection agreements, I make sure my customer understands why we recommend them for certain items. No, I do not recommend them for all, mostly based on the cost of the item. But in today's hard times, it is still easier to protect yourself than to have to pay for expensive repairs or for replacement of an item, even like a tabletop microwave.

For instance, if my customer is purchasing all new appliances for their kitchen and laundry, these are the appliances we recommend in the order of importance:

1. Refrigeration - as mentioned before, the compressor warranties on most brands are only for one year for defective manufacturing. Brownouts affect refrigerators more than surges. Again, by surges, I do not mean lightning strikes. I have a suburb just one mile from my store that experiences fluctuations all day long. I replace more appliances from this area for this reason than any other. In my own neighborhood, my transformers blow on my street at least twice a year, and every time I turn around, I am having to reset my clocks. Also, most people don't realize that certain ice makers cannot have just the broken part replaced. Depending on the style of door, they may have to replace the whole door!

2. Any appliance with a circuit board. These boards are found in 95 percent of all appliances. The unit may only have one, or may have up to three. They can range from around $200 for small boards, like in dishwashers, to well over $700 for fancier ones, like ones for weather stations. If damage is caused by a fluctuation, it will not be covered by the manufacturer. Believe me, they can tell if the board is defective or damaged from a surge.

3. Front loading laundry units - the nicer units have multiple circuit boards. Also, those big massive doors can still be damaged by an over exuberant child playing Tarzan on the door. We had to have a closeout model repaired two years ago. Final cost: over $500!

4. Laundry - if you cannot get it on both items, get protection on the washer. They have more moving parts, and also are stressed the most, especially if the user over-stuffs the drum, which strains the agitator. Many new washers no longer have belts that can be replaced. They are direct drive, which is more expensive to repair. My neighbor had four boys in sports, and she washed night and day. She went through three washers in nine years! I would rather buy a less expensive warranty than pay for three new machines!

5. There are certain brands that are not as reliable as they used to be. Some have been taken over by a more reliable company, so my associates feel more comfortable selling the new models.

6. Installed items - protection agreements may include free installs for replaced defective appliances, such as dishwashers and micro-hoods. One particular brand, because of how well it is made, may need double labor to fix if it does break down. Some agreements protect you from double labor charges.

7. The fancier the item, the more high-tech, the more you need the agreement. Plain and simple.

So, when shopping for appliances, ask about the warranties. Here is a list of questions to ask:

1. Does the warranty provide free maintenance checks with free repair or replacement of parts? Have them provide you with a list of costs for certain parts. You will be amazed! The idea of this is to keep the appliance in the same condition as you purchased it in order to avoid the inconvenience of a service call.

2. Does the warranty have free unlimited service calls? These service call fees can range anywhere between $50 - $80 just to ring your doorbell.

3. Does the warranty change the defective manufacturing warranty to a longer time? What about uncovered parts and cosmetic issues?

4. Does the warranty cover power fluctuations? A lot of people think that a surge protector is the answer. What they don't realize is the a SP only covers so many surges. Will the company still be in business if you have to make a claim? Did you keep the original package and receipt? I doubt it!

6. Does the warranty cover replacement of items that cannot be fixed, or does not have a part available?

7. What about food loss? Use of a rental until item is repaired or replaced - can be a real issue with refrigerators.

8. Does the warranty transfer at no cost?

9. Does the no-lemon warranty change to a longer time?

Knowledge is power. The more you know before you shop, the better you will feel about your purchase. Again, in a perfect world, protection agreements should not be necessary. But in today's world, it is. You take your car in for a tune up without thinking twice. Some appliances you use just as much! You buy insurance for yourself and your home. Maybe you will be lucky enough not to need it. But if you do, won't you be thankful. For a lot of people, unexpected costs hit the budget harder than protection agreements. That is what they protect you from - the unexpected.

Web Sites And Search Engines: What To Know About Search Engine Optimization


SEO Company by ackleyjojo


It is important that you understand keyword density if you write for the web and write SEO articles. keyword density basically indicates the amount of times that a selected keyword or keyword phrase appears on a web page or in an article on said page.

Keywords should be used throughout the article but you do not want to over use them. If you repeat them too often, your article or web site could be misconstrued as attempting to spam search engines or artificially boost your search engine rankings. Rather than help your site, it will hurt it. Be careful not to overuse those words!

What is keyword density and how can you determine what it is for your article or web page? Simply put, keyword density is defined as a percentage of the total word count on a web page, or how many times certain words appear within the total body of the article (web page).

For example, imagine that you have 100 words on your web page. Do not include the HMTL code used for writing the web page. Imagine that you use a certain keyword five times on the page or in that article. The keyword density on that page is figured by simply dividing the total number of keywords, by the total number of words that appear on your web page. So five divided by 100 = .05. Because keyword density is defined as the percentage of the total word count on the page, multiply the above by 100, that is 0.05 x 100 = 5%.

The accepted standard for keyword density is between 3% and 5%, so to get recognized by the search engines and you should never exceed it and you would want to have a 3% density at the minimum.

Remember that this rule applies to every page on your site and to every article that you write for the web or your own web site. It also applies to not just to one keyword but also a set of keywords that relates to a different product or service.

Easy steps to check the density:

  • Copy and paste the content from the web page or article that you wish to check into a word processor program such as Microsoft Word or Open Office.

  • On the tool bar, select Edit from the menu and click Select All. Next, go to the Tools menu and select Word Count. Jot down the total word count.

  • Now select the Find or Find and Replace function from in the Edit menu. Go to the Replace tab and fill in the keyword you wish to locate. Replace that word with the same word, so that you are not changing the text.

  • After you have completed the Replace function, the system will provide a count of the words that you have replaced. This gives you the number of times you have used the keyword on that page or in said article.

  • Using this method and the examples shown above, you can now calculate the keyword density.


Search engine optimization aims to attain the goal of having more visitors to an internet site by helping it get higher rankings in the search engines. This simply ensures that s.e. optimization's goal is to create a web site appear on the first pages, or even the initial page of a search done through the search engine.

You can find two approaches to be capable of getting noticed by search-engines. One is through pay-per-click-advertisements. A good example of a pay-per-click system that's used by search engines is the Google Adwords system. It has generated a hype and contains given Google around 5 billion dollars with regards to revenue per year. Webmasters can place their bids to be shown each time a keyword is searched by way of a surfer. The highest bidders can get their web sites to look first when the search has been done.
