Thanks for your responses. We will try Lowe's/Home Depot first and see if they can order and install a new window. Then maybe head over to the window treatments department for Roman blinds.

What kind of pro to hire to replace block window?

We don't know where to start replacing the vinyl block window above the tub in our bathroom. A few years ago, we noticed moisture in one or two of the blocks. Now there are perhaps 5-6 of the blocks...

I found an old thread (2007) about a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker making clicking noises and not putting out any ice. Tips were to either order a new ice maker or to take apart and see what's...

Photos of flaws in tub

I would not have entitled this thread "Reglazing tub"--that was the name of the original thread that I tried to glom onto. I just want to know the best way to handle these small flaws, especially if...

How would you handle these small flaws in bathtub?

We have a tub that is only 12 years old. The bottom has what I guess is supposed to be non-slip texture. What it looks like is as though someone had those adhesive stickers attached and then removed...

I think he was thinking it would be easier and less expensive. But then in the week we were away he concluded the best idea looks-wise would be under the driveway--even though a little more expensive.

Does $4000 sound reasonable for this job?

This is part II of my post, "Can a Neptune 900i water meter fail by speeding up?" in which we came to the conclusion that there is indeed a water leak under our driveway. We're leaking so much water...

Neptune R900i water meter- can it fail by speeding up?

I am a homeowner with no knowledge of these things but I'll tell you what I do know. We got a sewer service bill that was 4 times higher than unusual for March-April. I called and asked "What the...
