  1. My mom bought a new property near Calgary. A small house with a slate roof and rock walls. We bought it because of its vintage look, though it is quite strong and neat! So we haven't had any renovation works. She moved to there last week. I went there yesterday and found the shower pipe and bathtub are clogged. I tried cleaning the bathtub using the mix of salt and baking soda with vinegar. It has worked, the bathtub is almost ready now. My mom wanted me to call some nearby drain cleaning service, was suggested by her new neighbour. She has already spent the major part of her savings this property so I won't encourage further! Also, I have no idea on these pro services and their expenses. I will be staying here for a couple of days, so planning for some DIY methods. And the issue is it is very difficult when it comes to shower pipes. Because here it is of a copper material, fixed on top! I hope anyone here could have helped me with some good ideas to remove clogs from a fixed shower!
  2. Hey folks,As part of our home renovation, I'm planning to construct a gunite pool in our backyard. We have consulted with few companies for the gunite pool installation in Massachusetts, and impressed with almost everyone, except for the of cost of setup. I felt its too high for a normal gunite pool though I don't know the actual rates. But we don't have any luxurious requirements. Our backyard is of the size 30x40 feet, we only prefer a standard size pool with a typical depth of around 5.5-6.5 feet. I prefer gunite pool installation becuase I knew that these kind of pools last long, and I'm only interested in a long term investment. I will be going forward with this plan, only if I could find a budget service. I'd be happier if anyone can help me with the exact estimate cost. I can provide you with any further information on the requirements and model so that it would be easier for the cost estimation. If you know any experts who can help me with this, please pass this query to them. Furthermore, share your suggestions and ideas in the comments. Thank you.

    Home loan procedures?

    Yes, Lyam. My current home is built by my father and he has a home loan now it is up for renewal, and absolutely that makes me question whether I will be getting the best deal. Indeed, with interest rates hitting all-time lows in recent years, I guess refinancing can help to start saving. But I'm totally unaware of the pros and cons, but to reduce debt and of course, to take advantage of low -interest rates, I'm planning for home refinance in Ontario. I'm little confused about the closing costs of the loan, at the same time I'd be happy if I got a tax deduction on loan interest. My primary concern is to reduce the lows I had in recent years.
  4. I think you should specify your income or you don't say what you consider 'any non-property income'

    best mortgage rates?

    Hi just wondered if anyone can help me with this. I am going t renovate my home, how can I get the best mortgage rates?
  6. I'm planning to renovate my home. Can I receive a loan to do this? If so, are the criteria involved and procedures similar to a home mortgage? Also, are the interest rates the alike and is the tax strategy similar to for home loans?
