LESLIE: Alright, now we’re going to chat with Andrew from Austin, Texas who’s got a story about his bathroom.
Using Liquid Nails to Apply Wainscoting
TOM: Hey, Andrew. Welcome to the program. So what’s going on with your bathroom?
ANDREW: Well, we – our old house, we had a remodeling project where we wanted to put some wainscoting up around the outside.
TOM: (overlapping voices) OK.
ANDREW: We found a do-it-yourself kit. But unfortunately, they didn’t tell you any method for applying it to your wall. (Leslie chuckles) And I started off with an inexpensive adhesive that didn’t work very well and I wound up redoing some stuff.
ANDREW: And went back and used one of the Liquid Nails products with the low VOCs.
TOM: Oh, were you one of our Liquid Nails storytellers?
ANDREW: I was one of the storytellers.
TOM: Well, alright. So it came out good then, huh?
ANDREW: It was a great project. The low VOCs kept the smell down.
ANDREW: And we sold the house shortly after finishing that project.
LESLIE: (chuckling) Was it the project that broke the camel’s back; you were overdoing your home improvements, there?
ANDREW: Well, no. It was one of those projects we needed to finish up before listing it.
ANDREW: And matter of fact, the bathroom turned out to be a huge success. It was the last room that everyone came through when they viewed the house.
ANDREW: And not only did we sell the house in less than 48 hours; we sold it for over asking.
LESLIE: Wow. Wow.
TOM: Wow. In this market? You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s fantastic.
ANDREW: In this market. Yep.
TOM: So you really did have a pretty good success story with use of that Liquid Nails product. And you know, the bathroom is always a good project to do because it has such a great return on investment and, man, you proved that, didn’t you?
ANDREW: Oh, yes. The new owners – when we went back to meet the new owners a little while ago, after I think they received one of our packages – they couldn’t stop commenting on how great the bathroom looked; the fact that you couldn’t tell that it was a new remodeling project – it didn’t smell like a new remodeling project.
TOM: Well, maybe you’ve missed your calling; you should go into the home improvement business here, Andrew. (Tom and Leslie chuckle)
ANDREW: No, no. I’m pretty much done. (all laugh)
TOM: Alright, well thanks for filling us in on that. That’s fantastic. I’m glad it all worked out for you.
ANDREW: Alright, thank you, guys.
TOM: You’re very welcome, Andrew. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
