4:00 PM – Finishing the Rooms of Your House: After you have hung a door or window correctly, or just decided to call in a pro, you are left with bare drywall and unfinished edges. They will show you how to hang a door to begin with and then teach you how to finish the project. In this workshop learn how to cut, attach and pick out the proper molding, trim and millwork for the rooms of you house. Do you buy bare, composite or pre-painted finish materials? Learn how to use the proper tools and techniques to make the finishing touches on your project complete.
6:00 PM – Selecting the Right Carpet or Tile for your House: Still have shag carpet from the 80’s or old grout from the tile in your bathroom that you have to scrub every month? Replace it with the help of the professionals. The Home Depot has a wide variety of carpet to select from and has the right price for you. They will even install it, so you don’t have to sweat it. These pro’s can price it on site for you if you have the dimensions of the rooms you want done. If carpet isn’t your thing, these same pro’s can teach you how to lay tile.
