Things, if you have them long enough, will break and break down — that’s life. So, it helps to know what to do when that happens.

Maybe you have a leak in the basement and wonder about the next steps to take. You’ve got some brass items that have lost their shine, or you need to remove and replace wooden expansion joints.

Perhaps you’re dealing with damage from a Magic Eraser and wonder if there’s anything you can do about it at this point. Or you’ve got a damaged tile and can’t figure out how to remove it.

We’re here to help. Listen to the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show for the answers to these and many more home improvement questions.
