Sometimes, you’ll notice something about your home that needs to be repaired or updated, but then you wonder how to go about tackling the job.

For instance, just one plank in your laminate flooring needs replacement, but you’re not sure how to make this simple change. Or you want to install new wood trim, but you worry about the possibility of splitting or denting the wood.

What if condensation forms on the furnace? Do you wonder what that means, and what you can do about it? Or if streaks form along the waterline on your swimming pool’s tiles, and you’re not sure how to clean those.

We’ll talk about all these issues — and then some — on this episode of the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
