Many authentic Moroccan rugs make terrific wall decorations, and they can be used to cover large spaces on the wall that are empty. Rugs and elaborately embroidered tapestries make fabulous conversation pieces as well as wall hangings.

Moroccan mirrors have metal frames that have been intricately designed and elaborately detailed. A common practice is to place wall sconces on the wall and then place a mirror in between so that the light is reflected as much as possible. Consider using a mirror instead of using a painting or other wall decoration, so that the room seems larger as well as more beautiful.

Board Batten Vertical Siding

One of the best and most common types of vertical sidings is the Board-Batten siding. This type of siding has long been used among numerous residential homes, especially during the early 70’s. This is normally available in its standard dimension of 4 by 9 feet board panels. This is mainly made of thick plywood, except that its exterior layers are specially textured with rough finish along with slots on its ends. One side of the board has a groove while the other has a tongue. This makes it easy to install by inserting opposite sides to seal off the wall and provide much stronger foundation.

Obviously, Board-Batten sidings are installed vertically; and its main concept is to provide complete wall cover that is not only strong but aesthetic as well. This is so called Board-Batten because the sidings have boards and batten whereby during the installation the boards are fastened followed by the batten. As a result, 2 siding boards butt against each other.

One major flaw of this type of wall siding materials is that during various temperature changes in the atmosphere, the wood expands and contracts according to the weather condition. This creates some cracks that may result to void spaces in between boards. But this can be resolved by painting the boards in order to completely seal off the wall. Another sealing option is caulking using sealing materials, whichever the home owner prefers.

On the other hand, Board-Batten vertical sidings have numerous advantages as well. One of its benefits is awesome beauty to the house. The organized vertical wall sidings make it quite trendy in style with a touch of natural beauty. In the real estate sense, this can add value to the house because of the unique style it creates. Aside from that, these boards require less maintenance compared to the traditional individual boards, thereby giving home owners trouble-free use of these sidings on their walls.

In conclusion, Board-Batten is just one of the many other types of vertical sidings for homes and offices. In the past, leakage used to be a main issue to deal with when using this kind of sidings. However with the availability of more construction accessories today like technologically advanced sealing materials in the form of pastes and sealing tapes, leakage issues are resolved and its use is even more preferred.

There may be many other attractive options for wall sidings that are now available in the market. But despite the presence of numerous options, Board-Batten vertical siding still remains one of the viable choices among many home owners because of its unique features, along with its corresponding distinct benefits.

Extra Large Wall Clock

Depending on the maker and type of clock, the cost could be expensive or cheap. However, no matter the budget, it would be important to buy quality. Because the huge clock has become so popular, to meet consumer demand thousands of companies have cropped up to sell a variety of styles and designs. Unfortunately, many of these companies are more interested in making a quick buck instead of selling a quality product. The goal would be finding a large clock made with quality materials and workmanship so you know it would last.

While multiple clock manufacturers are located around the world, a vast number come from China. In fact, regarding import into the United States, currently more than three million clock manufacturers from China are registered. China is known for incredible oversized clock designs but no matter the country of origin, you want to make sure you end up with a quality clock that would provide years of accurate service and little to no maintenance. After determining the style of large clock most interested in, we suggest you spend time researching information online to learn all you can before making a purchase.

As an example, if interested in a grandfather type of oversized wall clock, it would have a pendulum. For a newer clock, the pendulum function would be spring driven whereas for an antique clock the pendulum function would be weight driven. It would be to your advantage to learn the difference between the two so when looking at different antique clocks, you would be able to recognize whether the clock were truly an antique based on the way the pendulum functions.

If you have your heart set on a huge French clock, you may want to rethink this choice. While French clocks are truly the most beautiful made, they are not cheap. In addition, French clocks are extremely difficult to maintain and in fact, very few professional clock makers know how to make proper repairs. For this reason, if you want the look of a French clock but without the expense and hassle, we suggest you look an extra large wall clock made in America, Britain, or Germany in a French design.

Retaining Walls

The difference is that in most townships throughout Michigan, the construction of a retaining wall is not regulated by the building department or construction codes. The quality of the construction is solely based on the experience of the contractor or homeowner. In many cases, neither party has extensive knowledge, experience or training, and as a result, it is built with poor integrity, installed, and destined for failure.

If you are considering on hiring a retaining wall contractor, here are some questions I suggest you should ask.

  • How many years have you been installing?
  • What are the construction specifications that you follow?
  • May I have a copy of your construction specifications?
  • Are you licensed and insured to be working on my property?
  • What is the warranty on the product?
  • What is the warranty on the installation/workmanship?
  • Where can I see some retaining walls that you have built?
  • Do you own the equipment that will be used on my property?

Can I visit your place of business? This question is very important, and I highly recommend you visit the company facility. It is not uncommon for companies to be renting equipment and working out of their home. If a contractor is not fully vested in their company, then I would suggest you not invest in them! These contractors come and go out of business regularly.
