In this episode…
Tired of having to walk to dog at all hours of the winter day? Tom & Leslie walk though the best options in doggy doors, plus dish out the best recipe to make sidewalk ice disappear with destroying concrete and share a $20 improvement that will provide more hot water.
- Adding a doggy door lets your pooch walk him or herself! Learn how to pick the right door (there’s at least 4 types!), get it properly installed and teach your pet to use. Learn the best way to burglar proof your pet door so skinny burglars don’t try and slip inside!
- Wondering why your walks look worn and pitted after every winter? Traditional rock salt works, but it’s extremely corrosive to surfaces and leaves concrete pitted and worn. Tom & Leslie share a recipe for a non-corrosive deicer that won’t harm your sidewalks or your indoor floors when it’s tracked into the house. It’s also a lot safer for pets!
- Find out why your water heater has to work harder in cold temperatures and how a $20 DIY project can make your hot water last a lot longer.
Plus, answers to questions about countertop refinishing, sealing drafty windows, heating a garage, leaky roofs and finishing a basement and more.
