DIY expert Chip Wade shared some of the lessons learned — and some key product ideas — in the process of building a house in Chatsworth, Georgia.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday, Jan. 21, Wade highlighted five of his favorite do-it-yourself products.
“Check out this cellular PVC tongue-in-groove board from VERSATEX called ‘canvas,’” he said, holding up a piece of the material.
Cellular PVC, Wade explained, does not need maintenance or painting, and has “no bugs, ever.”
“Super easy to install, it has this wood-grain veneer on top,” he said, adding that he installed the product throughout the inside and outside of his home.
“It’s even great on porch ceilings,” he said, noting that it comes in a variety of colors and profiles.
Next, Wade introduced the “EZ Level” cabinet levelers, which he said work much better than the traditional technique of using shims to ensure a level countertop.
The levelers can be installed on the bottom of cabinets in about 10 minutes, said Wade.
They can be adjusted “super, super easily” via screws in the front of the cabinet.
“Look at this. These come up and down after the cabinet’s installed,” he said. “It revolutionizes the precision of pro-level results.”
Wade then turned to large-format tiles, something he said are “notoriously difficult and expensive” to install.
