Metal vs plastic...

Single or two stage...

If you get mostly fluffy or small (less than 4") of snow at a...

Snowblower...

You should be fine with one of those, don't know enough about the current ones to recommend one over the other. With the heavy wet snow possible I'd avoid the electric ones.

Tires...

Next time I have to rotate maybe I'll bring the spare in to check things since it has a full size spare. I had written the tires off because the problem persisted through several rotations.

Fixed - maybe...

Well I 'fixed' the problem today.

I rotated the tires and the problem is gone for now.

Door way...

You mentioned 33" is to narrow for the doorway? Is wider code in your area or do you just want your doorways wider? My newly framed basement has 30" & 32" doors that all meet code for our area.

Thanks

I figured the price would be higher for a longer warranty but I haven't even been able to find one longer than 6yr. I'm stuck with forced vent or electric due to the location in the house. I...

Warranty on forced vent WH

I'm looking to buy a new forced vent water heater (50 Gallon) but I'm finding all of the FV ones only have 6 year warranties vs the 9-12 for regular vent WH's? Why is that? I'd think the tank and...
