bathroom-remodeling-projectA bathroom remodeling project can be an exciting prospect for your home. The bathroom is one of the most important parts of the home after all: the first place you visit when you get up in the morning and the last place you visit before you go to bed. If something isn’t right with it, whether it’s the aesthetics or a more practical question of functionality, remodeling may be the perfect way to deal with it.

There’s nothing actively harmful about hard water: it’s simply water with an unusually high mineral content, usually calcium or magnesium which our systems can ingest safely. But it wears into your quality of life, as well as affecting other key parts of your household. A water softener can easily correct those problems. (more…)
