Ask The Experts” allows the homeowner to ask local experts about projects they are involved in or are just starting to plan out. All you have to do is email your questions to Fresno Home Shows, OR, and then we in turn forward that question to all qualified merchants currently participating in our events. Answers and responding merchant contact information are posted on the Ask The Experts page for review.

We want you to be able to connect with our merchants whenever you need expert advice or guidance.

Question - "Dear Experts - I have damaged my wood floor. It is a composite material. What can I do to repair the hole? Thanks."
Response: The only way to successfully patch the floor where it doesn't show is to use some left over material to patch in. If there is none available, it will take a refinish person to do the entire floor.

Question - "Dear Experts...I have vertical blinds that have a couple of slats that have broken at the hole at the top that holds it in place. I've used duct tape and a hole punch to repair them, but the sun eventually releases the tape and they fall.  Is there a fix for this?  THANKS".   Dwayne

1st Response:
Replacement slats can be ordered at relatively low cost, or you can trim all the slats and punch new holes with a single hole punch tool.

2nd Response:
There is a fix.  You can purchase a small metal part that fits over the top, so you won’t have to replace the whole blind.  Thanks for asking.
