by home improvement guy on Yesterday at 11:55 AM
Power outages are frustrating enough. Add in a generator catastrophe, and, well ... boom.

What do I need to know about asbestos in my home?

by home improvement guy on 07-06-2020 at 09:03 AM

But the ban was removed a few years later, and while contractors virtually never use asbestos in residential applications anymore, it remains in millions of homes, especially those built before the 1970s.
