Sometimes, you have a bunch of home improvements lined up, but the excitement starts to diminish when you realize they didn’t quite turn out the way you expected.

Painters drip paint on a concrete block wall and you wonder what to do next. You hang shelves and wonder why they look lopsided. Or rainwater blows into your home through the bathroom exhaust fan’s vent pipe, and you’re just not sure how to solve that problem!

These are the kinds of problems we’ll focus on during this week’s episode of the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
