It’s been an exciting 2013. In the April edition of ShopSmart Magazine, published by Consumer Reports, my howdini.com video was voted one of the best home repair DIY videos. “Author and master contractor Ed Del Grande is encouraging and entertaining as he shows DIY novice, author, and TV personality Lisa Birnbach how to patch a hole in a wall in a few easy steps.” To see this award-winning video, just click here.
With the recent storms in the Northeast, not to mention winter weather, I’ve received a lot of questions about standby generators. You can click the “play” button, below, to see me explain how standby generators can work for your home and supply electricity during a short-term or long-term power outage.
Installing a new bathroom faucet? Here is Ed’s “Pro Tip.” Always hook up the pop-up assembly and sink drain connection first. Then, install the faucet body and make the water connections. This will eliminate the possibility (and mess) of the faucet running without the sink drain line connected. It happens more than you think!
I recently made an appearance on the Martha Stewart Show on behalf of Kohler Standby Generators. Pictured here, left to right, are Todd Weber (PR, Kohler), Martha herself, and Yours Truly. You can visit marthastewart.com or kohlersmartpower.com to get more information on the TV appearance and Kohler generators. Ed Del Grande working with Martha Stewart… how do you like them apples?!
