What does it cost to have a plumber come out to clear your kitchen sink plumbing drain? $200, $300, maybe more?

How about heating up ten gallons, even fifteen, of boiling hot water and pouring it down your kitchen sink? This will dissolve the grease that I GUARANTEE is starting to choke off your horizontal branch arm in the wall and the vertical kitchen drain stack.

New REVISED Roofing Bid Sheet

I spent the past two days developing a new roofing bid sheet that you can hand to the contractors who come to your home to give you a quote.

Jean, who resides in FL, got a copy and you need to see what she had to say about it. CLICK or TAP HERE and look at her quote at the top of the page in RED.

“The pitcher gets the sign, he coils up like a viper and sends a scorcher over the plate. Tim swings, connects, and it’s a frozen rope over the centerfield wall! A walk-off grand slam to end the game!”

That’s enough for a Friday afternoon.

Hunker down, save some sweet moola and BE SAFE!
