The last time it failed, I disengaged and pulled it down. It was smooth and very easy.

The thing is... it only fails about 10 times a year. The other 1,000 times it is fine. But when it...

What the heck is a "soft spot" in the roof?

My son has put an offer in on a house. The owner put in the disclosure statement that the roof had a "soft spot". Neither he nor I have any idea what a soft spot means. I figure something is...

The manufacturer says they don't recommend an elbow on the end, but it can keep rain and debris out of the fan and might be a good choice.

I will try to remove it, but presume it is glued on.

That looks easy enough...

I am guessing it would take me 30 minutes to take it out and put it back.

Is it worth the hassle to try to clean it, or should I just replace it?

Thanks for the help.

Painting lacquered oak?

We have oak railings on our staircase. My wife wants to paint the spindles white.
I presume it is lacquered, but don't really know.

Does it have to be primed first, or just painted?
