Bathroom upgrades using overlays.

Bathroom upgrades using overlays


If you're considering a bathroom update, you're probably familiar with the
typical approaches, such as replacing a countertop or toilet, or removing all
the fixtures and finishes to complete a floor-to-ceiling renovation.

 

However, there is another, far less expensive way to make an older
bathroom look brand new: using overlays.


An overlay is simply a new surface applied over an existing one. For
example, instead of replacing an old and worn bathtub – which is costly –
you can purchase an overlay system (called a tub liner) that fits on top of
the existing bathtub. It's a little like giving your tub a facelift!


You can do the same thing with your bathroom countertops and floors.
Overlays come in a wide variety of styles and finishes – some of which can
make your bathroom look significantly more upscale.

 

Compared to a major renovation, the installation of overlays is relatively straightforward. A tub
liner installation, for example, can be done in a day.


You can learn more about overlays at your local home improvement centre
and at specialty bathroom showrooms.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
