Tips For Decking & Insulation Projects

Our team answers homeowner questions every weekend on WCCO 830 AM from 9:00 am-10:00 am.  Have your most pressing home improvement questions answered by calling 651-461-9226.  Here’s must-know information from our in-house deck specialist, Luke Panek, shared on 3.26.22.

Brown treated decks need to be refinished every couple of years to keep them looking their best.  This prevents peeling, flaking, and mold growth.  Once wear and tear appears, it is often hard to reverse its appearance.  That’s why it’s important to stay on top of deck maintenance and complete updates even when the finish is still in good shape.  Kiln-dried wood needs a protective coating faster than other types of wood products because it is manufactured with a lower moisture content.

A light-filled home in Melbourne inspired by a designer’s love affair with marble

Simply marble-ous! That sums up furniture designer Adele Cotruzzola’s early adulthood, which she spent surrounded by the natural stone in this family home in Melbourne’s east. It inspired her passion for the classic material and made her appreciate not just its beauty but its functionality.

A trip to Milan and Tuscany, in 2019, underlined the epiphany. Adele found herself smitten by Milanese architecture: “I’ve always been drawn to Italian architects’ composition, which is bold, mixing colours and patterns,” she says. “There’s no holding back, marble is everywhere. I wanted to create the feeling of Italy in Australian homes, so we can adopt Milanese style.” Just Adele, specialising in marble furniture, was born.

Windows 11 ISO download

Windows 11 ISO images are now available! Despite Microsoft saying that Windows 11 is available for supported PCs only, it can be used on unsupported PCs using ISOs – at your own risk, see below – and all features do work well.

Windows 11 ISO contains Build 22000.194 (version 21H2) of the operating system and it is available in all editions (Pro, Home, Enterprise, Education, etc). The new operating system requires 64-bit processors, so the ISO file is not being offered in the 32-bit version.

Windows 11 version 21H2, otherwise known as October 2021 Update, started rolling out on October 5, but the availability depends on the location of the device. If you can’t wait for the free upgrade notification on Windows Update, you can download ISOs of Windows 11 version 21H2 to update your devices immediately or perform a clean install.
