Picture this: You have a number of home improvements you want to tackle, and you’ve made up the list. But you’re not sure about some of the finer points that will bring these projects to fruition.

It’s easy to imagine, because that’s the reality for countless homeowners every single day.

Maybe you know you want to install soffit vents, but you’re not sure about the size. (It varies from room to room and home to home.)

Perhaps you want to install storm windows, but you want to make absolutely sure they won’t leak before you make that commitment. On that note, maybe you also want to waterproof your windows.

Or you want to install a walk-in shower (they’re a trendy choice right now) and need tips, or you just want to know what you need to know when installing vinyl plank floors.

We’ll help you with these home improvements, and many more, on this week’s episode of the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
