Expert Advice for Your Home

Experts answer your questions to help better your home!

WHEN STARTING A HOME RENOVATION, WHAT SHOULD I PRIORITIZE FIRST?

Start with the outside and work your way in! What matters is what you don’t see. Is the roof in good condition? What’s behind the walls? Is it insulated properly? Those types of core issues need to be dealt with before you start on the pretty things inside. – Mike Holmes JR will appear in Season 4 of Home to Win, premiering on HGTV Canada this fall.

What is a Passive House?

This is the most ecologically friendly and sustainable construction. The main cause of loss of energy in traditional homes are thermal bridges that allow the easy transfer of heat or cold energy. Passive Homes feature continuous insulation around the outside of the building with no thermal bridges, resulting in dramatically reduced energy costs, improved air quality and increased comfort. – Rick Stacey, www.rascomgreenbuild.ca

How do I ensure my glass shower enclosure won’t leak?

Choose a 3 Point Anti Leak system that includes hinges, side seal gaskets and a threshold. The hinges overclose by 5%, pushing the door against the gaskets for a nice, tight close. The threshold runs across the opening of the door with a slight slope to roll water back into the shower. – Tara Hreljac, www.doorsandmore.ca

What materials are available for kitchen cabinets?

Classic kitchen cabinetry is usually made from solid wood, painted wood, laminate or thermofoil. Modern kitchens are using more wood, glass, and synthetic materials or a combination of materials. Designs are also more convenient than in the past, offering more options for storage and customization! – Shinya Mikawa, www.canadoo.ca

What steps can be taken to ensure accuracy when framing a home?

One important step is to create in-depth shop drawings. They are created specific to our scope of work including supplier details of materials and structural items being used, issues unique to the site and the like. We essentially build the house on our software before commencing the project. This allows us to identify all irregularities before construction begins. These drawings allow construction to move quickly, minimizing errors and producing a high quality of work. – Wall-Up Carpentry, www.wall-upcarpentry.ca

I have a four bedroom house. Will combining a small bathroom and bedroom into a larger bathroom affect my home’s value?

This is an excellent decision as bathroom and kitchen upgrades add substantial value and reducing from 4 to 3 bedrooms won’t negatively affect your value. If you had fewer bedrooms, the opposite would be true. – Marcia Bergen, www.marciabergen.com

How can I ensure a quick sale in a competitive market?

Make sure your home is move-in ready, up to date and in good condition. Potential buyers can be very picky and finding one small hidden problem will actually lower their perceived value of your home overall. If funding is an issue, speak to a home equity loan specialist about using existing home equity to fund the repairs needed so you can sell your home for a higher value, faster. – Amit Anand, www.Tribecca.ca

Why is it important to survey for water before drilling?

Way too many homeowners spend thousands of dollars on drilling that results only in expensive dry holes or very low yields. Using research with Seismo-electric technology (Seismic Ground Water Detection) and equipment prior to drilling allows you to minimize risk and maximize yield. – Gary Kehler, www.waterfind.ca

What is involved in a truly sustainable build?

When building a sustainable home, we have to consider more than just energy efficiency. Truly sustainable building includes reducing waste during construction, building with healthy products with minimal chemical off-gassing, choosing local or recycled materials and investing in materials that will last longer and require minimal maintenance over time. Our goal is to reduce long term costs for heating and maintenance while reducing environmental impact. – Cal Dueck, www.dueckbuilders.com

How can I fit a tub and separate shower in a small space?

In this small bathroom, well placed lighting and a glass shower enclosure allows light to move so the space feels larger. The freestanding tub is placed at an angle which allows a larger tub to fit in the space and looks decorative at the same time! – Shawn Jones, www.thehomeimprovementstore.ca

Ask a Roofing Expert: Is Plywood Sheathing Necessary?

My roof deck has boards, is plywood sheathing necessary?

The short answer; yes. A boarded roof deck is often very aged and in poor condition. They have been subject to many years of weathering, expansion and contraction, extreme temperatures, and often poor ventilation. They split when nailing into them, affecting the integrity of your roof and any warranties involved. Years of warping can make them bumpy and uneven with deep cracks and holes.

A fresh coat of plywood ensures all the nails have the backing they need to be fully secured to your roof deck. It also provides a clean and flat working surface which helps with the installation process and, most importantly, the overall look of your roof.

Also, many contractors won’t warranty a roof without plywood sheathing since a boarded surface is unreliable in the long-term and in extreme weather conditions. – Army Roofing, www.armyroofing.com

Ryan Reynolds Gave a Fellow Expert Troll the Perfect Present

Ryan Reynolds has kicked the holiday season off by gifting a fellow expert troll with an early Christmas present.

After Twitter user @AGuyInChair, who owns the web domains AvengersEndgame.com and AvengersEndgameMovie.com, changed those URLs to redirect visitors to 20th Century Fox’s website for the Deadpool movies following the release of the Avengers: Endgame trailer, Deadpool himself decided to show his gratitude with a gift.

@AGuyInAChair took to Twitter on Friday to share photos of the Aviation Gin case —and accompanying gifts inside — that he received from Reynolds. However, he also noted that he was ready to trade Reynold’s offerings to accomplish his original goal of finagling tickets to the Avengers: Endgame premiere.

“Package from @VancityReynolds just arrived! Wow! This thing is beautiful!!! And I will trade it immediately for 2 tickets to the premiere! Any takers?” he wrote, adding, “Holy crap! There’s stuff inside too! (These have got to be worth two tickets, right?) They’re from Canada! Or a Canadian at the very least!!”

But Reynolds clearly wasn’t fazed by @AGuyInAChair’s response. “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did,” he replied. “Just that I happen to love you.”
