Weekly Roundup

by Kuhrich on Friday, May 2, 2014

Welp, it’s definitely been a while since our last Roundup (Definitely more than a week), but who’s counting? Today we’re back with some great product recommendations and industry news. Here goes.

For starters, let’s get practical. It’s no secret that duct tape covers a multitude of sins. Now we can cover those sins with fewer people finding out. Gorilla Glue has a great new product called Gorilla Clear Repair. Basically, this is clear duct tape. It features heavy duty strength tape and extra thick adhesive for airtight and weatherproof seals. Here’s a video if you want to see this tape in action.

Since we’re almost halfway through Spring, odds are you are probably planning some home improvement projects – like painting for example. One of the biggest painting nightmares is to spill a whole can of paint onto a nice clean carpet (I know this first hand). Paint Handy is a new paint container that solves the paint spilling problem. This product is made up of a disc shaped plastic container with a soft, foam-like liner that holds the paint and a strap with velcro to wrap around your hand or arm. Check out this video for more info.

Apparently there’s some good news in the housing industry. According to RealtorMag.com, the official magazine of the

National Association of Realtors, Americans are ready to spend money on real estate. Typically, the main driver for real estate buyers is the need for more living space and the perception that real estate is currently a good investment. So if you’re thinking about trying to sell your home any time soon, the word on the street is that there should be a reasonable amount of buyers in the market to purchase a new home.

That’s all for now. Have a great week!
