Re: Replacing a heater

If you cannot find a reputable plumber through asking your neighbors, then I would suggest you go to Lowe's. They do installations, can guide you to the correct heater for your application and back their installs with the reputation of Lowe's, not some fly by night plumber who may or may not warrant...

Re: Replaced sill. Need advice

If you can manage to get a long fastener in from the bottom up into the side jamb, you may suck the sill up to the casing and jamb. It also looks like there is a sag in the middle of the window that you might be able to remove with shims, that would bring the ends tight(er) to the casing. But, if th...

Re: Help with 2nd floor balcony

If you can trim the balcony so it's back on the top of the garage, I think it will look much better. I think I see board and batten siding on several parts of the house so Personally I would go traditional with rail and balusters and not worry too much about the stone veneer. I think the vertical ba...

Re: Help with 2nd floor balcony

I am in a pickle. I was thinking at the same time to improve the architecture of the home by pulling in the balcony on all sides to be flush with the garage and then adding some railings instead of the planked exterior. Does this sound like a good idea? What else could I do? I could not agree more....

Re: What could be the cause of a squeaking noise in my batht

I am assuming that your tub and walls are fiberglass. The squeaking is from improper installation. When there is not correct support under the ribs designed to hold the weight of a person or a full tub, it squeaks. Same with the walls, if they are not installed correctly, they will squeak when press...

Re: Match outside wood grain trim

Possibly the originals used 'rough sawn' lumber. Often times this has one dressed side and one rough side. Depending on the wood you are using, any lumber yard ought to have rough sawn pine, cedar and hemlock. Even Lowes has rough sawn cedar and pine so you might give another place a shot before try...
