Home Show in Wenatchee: Feb. 11-13th

Home Show Wenatchee Town Toyota CenterEvery year the NCHBA or North Central Home Builders Association produces a spectacular home show in Wenatchee, Washington.  There’s a little something for everyone whether you are interested in remodeling, decorating, building, buying or selling a home…they’ve got all the experts there for your questions!  Here’s some info from their website.  Download this COUPON for $1 off admission:

This year, we have a lot of new things going on and are very excited to “get the Show on the road”! The Kid’s Zone by Lowe’s is going to be fantastic this year. Not only will the kids be able to build their own project with a professional from Lowe’s, they can go on a scavenger hunt with their parents or enjoy FREE ice skating on Friday and Saturday. So, if you have kids that are 12 and under, make sure to take them to the Kids Zone by Lowe’s, located in the Crunch-Pak Hospitality Room on the the main floor of the Town Toyota Center!  Workshops and How-to’s that you WON’T want to miss! Come and see what the Master Gardeners have to demonstrate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the show!   Be one of the first 250 attendees on Saturday and Sunday and receive a special Home Show Entrance Bag! These bags will be filled with small gifts, specials and discount coupons from participating sponsors and vendors! These bags will also come in very handy when you need a place to stow away other information and items you gather!  There will be additional event parking available for attendees across the street at Walla Walla Point Park, both parking lots, as well as at Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse. Many thanks to Lowe’s for generously allowing our Home Show attendees to use half of their parking lot for our event!

Fix Bathroom Problems for $20

I must have said it a million times…ignored maintenance will lead to aggravating headaches. When you go to bed at night and the whole house is quiet can you hear a faucet leaking? For a buck or two you could fix that faucet and save a little on your water bill. Just replace the seal or washer. When you get out of the shower do you have a puddle under the shower door? It’s probably time to tighten or replace your shower door seal or sweep. If not, the water will seep into your floor daily and start to rot the subfloor. This is an easy fix for $10 or less. Finally, we have the toilet. Wobbly toilets are a sign of loose bolts and can lead to a broken wax ring causing water damage to the floor and the ceiling below (if it’s an upstairs bathroom). Wax rings start at about $5, but if you haven’t replaced one before you should consult with a professional. Bottom line…fix leaks and insecure plumbing accessories right away to avoid serious threats of rot, mildew, mold, structural damage and hefty handyman bills. Call our inspectors in the Seattle or Wenatchee area if it’s time for a scheduled maintenance inspection. We’ll let you know what needs your immediate attention.
