A bathroom usually consists of two main parts: a bowl and a tank. It is best to first install the bowl. Prior to seating the bowl, check if the closet flange has been temporarily plugged with insulation or a rag to prevent sewer gases from escaping. Remove this. Next set the bowl on top of the closet flange to determine if it sits level. If it does not, prepare some shims to use later.
Look at all of the quotes you received for the improvement project you have in mind and tale note of whether or not they have a letterhead. Professional businesses use a letterhead. It is an indication that the business is established and is probably not a fly-by-night operation. This is a definite plus for the company, but you need to be sure to do other research as well.

Do not pour grease and oil down your drains. Cooking grease will build up in your pipes and could cause back-ups. Keep grease and oil in a container in your fridge and throw it in the trash when it is full. Avoid clogging your pipes with any products containing oil or grease.
When you are working on the outside of the house, a thing to think about adding is some lights that will detect motion. Rather than leaving your lights on throughout the entire night, motion detecting lights will only light up when there is nearby movement. Also, intruders are more wary of lights that turn on because of their movements.
Initial price gives only a peephole view of the true cost of a remodel over the lifetime of your home. A low price may mean a good deal, or it may signify a lack of quality or durability. Or it may mean that some design, materials, or building costs are not included in the price. A higher purchase price can mean a better deal in the long run: you can actually reduce the cost of living in your home by choosing quality resource-efficient fixtures (lowering monthly utility bills) and durable materials (requiring less frequent replacement).
The very next day, it flooded again. I called the emergency number, and the crew came out immediately. They called me to say the line was running at a normal flow, and that perhaps we had a collapsed sewer line.
