Re: Installing new flooring over ceramic tile?

I would guess the grout lines could be filled in to match the height of the tile and then covered with faux wood. Yes, tearing out all the tile would be a nightmare, but a really good contractor with a few guys could get it done pretty quick. A friend just had this done and I was shocked in how quic...

Re: SeamsRight pretty much out of business

Musical. For hair that is sticking, Haas makes a rubber hand held gadget (Smartpak sells them) that works like magic to remove stubborn hair. I use it on all my saddle pads and clothes now. I was using my old sweeeper but I think the suction was a bit much and I ended up with a tiny hole.

Nor do I know where the beans would be if she would have any.
