Winter plumbing problems and how to avoid them?

 

Winters are the prime time for plumbing problems. It could also be increasingly difficult to hire a plumber due to the high demand. Along with this, the fees for plumbing services are also usually higher during the winters. However, taking a little precaution, you can reduce the plumbing problems to a great extent. Give below are the most common plumbing problems that arise during winters and the ways to avoid them.

  1. Frozen outdoor pipes

Frozen pipes are the most common issue during winters. As the water in the pipes freeze, they expand and turn into ice, eventually causing cracks and fissures. If you do not want this happening to your pipeline, you should take action well in advance, before the temperature starts dropping down to freezing extremes. Turn off all the main valves supplying water to the house while the weather is still warm. The main valves are usually located in the basements and under the sinks. If you have trouble finding it yourself, you can call in plumber stonefields for assistance. They are usually well acquainted with the plumbing system of different houses and may also suggest installing new valves if required.

  1. Frozen indoor pipes

To prevent the indoor pipes from freezing, you can maintain a steady temperature of above 13 degrees. This should be sufficient to avoid frozen pipes. Remember to maintain this temperature even though you may be away from home. If there are any pipes located near an outside wall leave the cabinet doors open so that warm air can circulate around the pipes and keep them from freezing. Frozen pipes are generally indicated by very low pressure and may lead to bursting of the pipes. You can also opt for insulation for additional protection. If you notice anything that could be indicative of a pipe burst, contact the plumber stonefields right away before the problem escalates any further.

  1. Water heaters

Water heaters are of crucial importance in every household, especially during the winters. Despite their importance, water heaters do not always get the maintenance they deserve, especially because they are tucked away from sight in the basements. However, if they stop functioning, it could cost you a great deal of money. To make sure they do not suddenly give away during the winters, check if they are placed in a safe manner, if there are any open doors or windows through which cold could get in and if the insulation on the heater is still functional. Going through all these can save you a great deal of trouble later on. You can also call in the plumber stonefields if there seem to be any inconveniences with the setting.

  1. Flooding basements

During winters, snow, ice and leaves can cause major blockages in the drainage. As a result, you might have your basement flooded with water. This can severely damage the foundations of the house. You could hire a plumber to look through the drainage problem and drain away the excess water.

If Needing Repairs for Clogged Drains, Contact a Drain Layer North Shore

 

One of the many problems a plumber can face when fixing a home are clogged drains. Sometimes, you get to notice that the water you use is forming a puddle and is moving slowly in the shower, tub or sink. Rather than call a professional drain layer North Shore, you use powerful chemical arsenal for the unclogging job. You may not realize it, but you only solved the problem for some time. Sooner, this can turn out to be a big water blockage problem and will need the urgency to contact a plumber.

There are occasions where you need to drain the plumbing system of your home. Sometimes, you need to fix a major problem such as water hammer problem. You can also be doing a seasonal shut down of your property, especially during winter. Or you can be doing other plumbing activities or repair.

When you need to do these jobs, you need to repair, upgrade or install new pipes and drains. These can be jobs done by a drain layer North Shore for your drain laying requirements.

All you need to do is check their company, do some scrutinizing of their prices and feature, and do some comparison shopping. The best ones will respond to all your queries and can come quickly for your needs.

The job of drain laying will include the following services:

  • Installation and upgrades for commercial and residential properties
  • Maintenance and repairs
  • Provide de-clogging of blocked drainage systems
  • Absolute assurance that the work done complies with Health and Safety requirements.

Perhaps the blockage can be a trap which you can repair it by yourself. You may want to use a plunger or plumber’s snake for the fixing. But if the blockage doesn’t seem to be solved in one location, the problem could be the pipe drainage and will need fixture up to the main line down the street. In this case, you need to contact a drain layer North Shore to have it fixed and cleaned out. They are the best person to fix the problem and have it last longer after the fixture. You may want to scout for those offering the services for a reasonable price.

Antique store opens in Fort Gratiot

After 20 years of marriage, Melissa and Tony Reynolds finally went after their life-long dream: opening an antique shop.

The two, of Burtchville Township, were married when they were 19-years-old and their personal antique collection has continued to grow since then.

A little over a month ago their ideal store location became available along Lakeshore Road in Fort Gratiot.

“We’re right along Lakeshore Road and near the water, which is what we were looking for,” said Melissa Reynolds, Rusty Bucket Antiques co-owner. “Now you can go from Marine City up to Lexington with no break in the antique trail.”

Their grand opening was during the Yard Sale Trail weekend. They got the keys to the 2,000-square-foot store 5985 Lakeshore Road just a month before the event. No work on the building was required before opening, so the duo quickly stocked the store to ready it for the busy weekend. Previously the store was a photography studio and before that, a salon.

Reynolds said having a winding trail of antique shops is a great way to pull tourists through each little town.

The shop has a variety of reasonably-priced items from large furniture pieces such as tables and desks to smaller décor items such as vintage typewriters and kitchen items.

A few highlighted items include a library table made in Detroit between the 1900 and 1950. The table at one time was home to an old library card catalog.

Another local item hails from a Detroit church – a large wall-sized cabinet built in the 1900s.

 

“I had a vintage vanity growing up and always decorated with vintage items,” Melissa Reynolds, 39, said.

Melissa’s love for antiques began as a child when she would follow her mom on antique-hunting adventures.

“I just remember waking up early, planning out our day and circling garage sale in the newspaper,” she said. “Everywhere we went, on vacation, visiting family, anywhere, if my mom saw an antique store along the way, we would go.”

Tony Reynolds has always loved classic cars and vintage tin toys, but his love for antiques escalated when he met Melissa.

“She falls in love with everything,” he said. “And I love everything too, but really I like to look at the mechanics of how things were built compared to now.”

Tony Reynolds and their son, Kyle, 18, love spending time in the garage working on their classic 1947 Jeep Willys and 1964 Buick Skylark.

Recently Tony and Melissa took a trip up Route M-1 along the east coast of the country, stopping at all the small, old towns and peeking into every little antique shop they found.

Every week, Rusty Bucket Antiques will fill with new items they have found through their 20 years of antique adventures and collecting.

“We want our shop to be a fun spot for families who camp, have cottages and vacation in the area to stop back in every year,” Melissa Reynolds said. “We will be getting general store candies (soon).”

And if customers stop in on the weekend they will be treated to free coffee and donuts to enjoy while they browse.

Rusty Bucket Antiques will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information go to www.facebook.com/rustybucketantiquesfortgratiot.

Marklin “Amerika” Steams to a Record $271,400

Bertoia Auctions, Vineland, New Jersey

Photos courtesy Bertoia Auctions

An enthusiastic, rollicking crowd convened at Bertoia Auctions’ Toy Shoppe sale on May 20 and 21. They helped pull off, in Jeanne Bertoia’s words and in racetrack parlance, a trifecta. The $1.4 million run at the Vineland, New Jersey, auction house made it three consecutive million-dollar-plus auctions: the March Select Toys Sale, April’s Jerry and Nina Greene’s trains and accessories sale, and the Toy Shoppe sale.

The more than 1300 lots included banks, comic/character toys, transport, construction, and utility toys in pressed steel, cast iron, tinplate, and wood, penny toys, holiday toys, and all the trimmings. Countless treasures bore the pedigree of such legendary collectors as Lillian Gottschalk, Barney Barenholtz, Richard Keats, Bill Bertoia, Don Kaufman, and Max Berry.

The odds-on favorite was the ocean liner Amerika by Gebrüder Märklin that had been found in a midwestern attic and was remarkably preserved; the early 1900s four-stack liner is nearly faultless and spans 38″. Intense, aggressive bidding ensued in the gallery between a stateside collector and the agent for a noted Märklin aficionado from Europe. At a record $271,400 (includes buyer’s premium), the European prevailed.

This Märklin Amerika ocean liner, early 1900s, 38″ long, a recent attic find, reached a new high for nauticals at $271,400.

Nearly as jaw-dropping was the price for a painted tinplate floor train set by Francis, Field and Francis, the earliest U.S. toy in the auction. It was a splendid stencil-painted tinplate train set from the early 1870s with a 10″ engine with tender and two coaches, each 6¾” long. It mesmerized bidders to $64,900, more than double the estimate.

This sale marked a return engagement for Jay Schoedinger of Columbus, Ohio, a consignor of light pressed steel toys. Part I of his collection had been eagerly vied for in Bertoia’s March auction. “Jay’s toys would be an upgrade for almost anyone’s collection,” observed Rich Bertoia. Brawny delivery trucks and vans emblazoned with the logos of mercantile giants of the 1930s and 1940s were a high priority. Especially noteworthy was a Buddy “L” dairy transport truck, No. 857, a 25″ long boxed example, that sold for $2950.

A Borden’s milk delivery van by Rich Toys, wood and tin, with glass milk bottles, 16″ long, sold for $2124. No matter how you slice it, the exceptional graphics on the side panels of a First Prize truck (Albany Packing Co.) added to its allure. It was 13″ long and sold for $4130. Unbelievably immaculate, a U.S. mail truck, 1920s, 26″ long, delivered at $4720.

Fulton side-wheeler ferry boat, Althof, Bergmann & Co., 1880s, with condition flaws, $17,700 (est. $16,000/20,000).

As the options for buying all-original, top-condition pressed steel toys diminish, diehard pressed steel devotees are begrudgingly beginning to show more interest in contemporary and completely restored examples. Take a custom Buddy “L” Harley Davidson truck, a recent Les-Paul creation, for example. At 25″ long, it brought $708. Cataloged as a fully professionally restored and custom re-creation, a Steelcraft Mobiloil truck, 23½” long, made $413.

A marvelous private selection of Santa Claus figures and other holiday celebrities highlighted Bertoia’s November 2015 outing. Some 130 candy containers, displays, sleighs, wicker autos, belsnickels, and Dresdens again made spirits bright at the May sale. Santa even appeared riding a horse on a platform pull toy. At 13″ high, it sold for $826. Fanciful in form, a nodding Santa walking with a cane on a wheeled platform had blue glass eyes and was 20½” tall. It was at the top of most wish lists at $16,520.

This was the first auction outing in years for this toy. The F. Martin boy roller skater, early 1900s, hand-painted tin, 8½” high, made $16,520. When a toy reference book extols its allure, a category invariably receives a bump in media exposure and collector interest. Fernand Martin, Toymaker in Paris: 1878-1912 (2016) by Lourens Bas and J. Arthur Verdoorn offers a fresh look at Martin’s oeuvre. It includes hundreds of full-color images and a DVD of the bonshommes in action.

Richly hand-painted Märklin ocean liners, battleships, and paddle-wheelers from the golden years of the early 1900s are in a class of their own in the toy hierarchy. Many specialists hold the opinion that these majestic floating palaces push the classification as a toy to the extreme. Produced as luxury toys and marketed in limited editions to the British and U.S. markets, they were priced at an equivalent of about one month’s pay for the average worker. Accurately scaled and equipped with powerful clockwork engines, they could navigate streams, lakes, and ponds for as long as 40 minutes.

This writer recalls covering a Sotheby’s Collectors’ Carrousel auction in June 1983 when a Märklin Lusitania ocean liner cruised to a then record price of $28,600. We naively assumed that this record was so unassailable that it would hold up for some time. We hesitate to estimate how many times that figure has been surpassed. Fast-forward to 2012 when the Märklin steam-powered paddle-wheelers Chicago and Providence sold for $264,500 and $247,250 respectively at Bertoia’s auctions of ships and boats

from Dick Claus. And last year Märklin’s Auguste Victoria, which at 42″ is the largest Märklin ship made, surged to $230,000 at Auktionhaus Hohenstein; it was ex-Märklin Museum, Göppingen, Germany. As Israel Sack often expounded, “With masterpieces, there is no limit.”

A garage is no longer space where you park your car or any other vehicle. Int, in the recent times when the real estate prices are too high and space crunch is a common problem that most people face, the garage is used as a storage place as well. But that doesn’t in any way mean that its actual utility will have to be compromised with. With efficient garage storage solutions, you can use your garage to park your vehicle and store necessary things as well.
