Often, when homeowners make improvements to an existing house, the most important aspects of home performance – including safety, comfort, energy efficiency, durability, and environmental impact – are literally invisible during key steps of any home sale or refinance transaction.

My home has 3 pocket doors whose open track areas I have caulked well best as I can from the door jams without removing the track or framing around it. I believe I should attack the remainder of the leaks from the attic and from the basement.

What I liked most about this book was that it was a series of ten stories. There is a kind of summary chapter at the end, but I think you…Continue

Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Used car salesmen get a bad rap, and there are good reasons for that. But I think the home performance community can learn from them in some important ways. I say that as someone who once had a serious case of buyer’s remorse, but got over it.
When I first moved to California I was working at an independent bookstore in Berkeley, and I liked the idea of not having a car. But after a year I realized that I couldn’t get everywhere I wanted to go in a timely manner on BART (Bay…Continue
