Water Heating Systems – The Difference Between a Boiler vs. Water Heater

There are key differences between boilers and water heaters. Before deciding between a boiler vs. water heater for your home, carefully consider your needs. Boilers are expensive and difficult to install, but they can be a long-lasting option if the home doesn’t currently have a dedicated heating source, and can also be used to heat water for use throughout the home. Water heaters are a more affordable choice that can be installed with relative ease, though these appliances cannot function as a heating source. Learn about differences in functionality and maintenance between boilers and water heaters that could impact which type of water heating system you install.

Basement Floor – The Cost of Concrete Resurfacing

Concrete is a common option for unfinished basement floors, and decorative concrete and polished or stained concrete are often used for finished basements. Concrete resurfacing typically costs $3 to $9 per square foot, with most homeowners spending $6 per square foot or up to $20 per square foot for decorative overlays. If cracks or wear in the existing basement floor are minimal, resurfacing a basement floor can be done quickly at a cost of approximately $3 to $5 per square foot, or for about $4 to $7 if adding a decorative design. The cost to resurface concrete can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the size and type of surface area, prep work needed, labor rates, additional repairs, staining or overlays, and more. The most important cost factor when homeowners are putting together a budget is the surface area.
