Introduction to Cork Flooring by Remodel West
RemodelWest has been designing and remodeling homes since 1992. Just recently we have noticed a trend in using cork material as a flooring solution. We thought we would take the opportunity to share a few quick facts about Cork.

Bathroom Remodeling and the CostsThe cost of bathroom remodeling often surprise homeowners. I believe it must stem from the size of the room and therefor the perception that it must be inexpensive. There are a few ways to tackle a bathroom remodel and it’s first a good idea to understand what the definition of a remodel is.
