drain

I figured that you must have had a clog as well as I read the beginning post that you made. It is a good thing that Mike ran across it and told you about it. He had some great detailed drawings of...

hurricane

Has a hurricane hit there more than that one time that you know of? I guess like the others are saying, it would be a gamble to put similar materials back down.

I did like the idea that was posted...

asphalt

That was a good idea about taking pictures for someone else in the future to see. Possibly if you are selling the home a few years down the line, and also for the insurance company.

Have you ever...

cement board

You did the right thing. If you would have left it and then put your tile down and the grout broke up, you would have kicked yourself (and the cat.)

roof

I wouldn't worry about it either. If you are concerned about the cracking, and can't stand it, you don't have to replace it. You just have to screw a 1x6 to the rafter to prevent any more cracking....

roof

It could be so many things, that you are going to have a time finding it. One thing, if the roof is the metal shingles I think you are referring to, they usually are nailed or screwed on. Even if...

Roof

The shingles are installed correctly, there just wasnt' the right amount of flashing put underneath the edge. You just have to take the shingles up that are working as an edge cap, and put the proper...

Roof

It has to be the ventilation. There isn't enough air running through the attic. Do you have gable vents on both ends? If so, you may have to add a fan blowing out of one of the gable vents. I would...

Trusses

I must not be seeing what Rough Rooster is seeing on the trusses. It probably is just an oversight on my part, but the trusses look built correctly to me. You can take any posts, walls, and under...

Satellite TV

I used to work installing both Dish Network and DirecTV. Dish Network is bad about charging for everything if a technician goes out there. DirecTV says that they will charge, but if you put up a...

Roofing

I have been walking on a roof since I was a teenager, and I am now 38. Yes you will get about 5 more years out of the roof if you tear it off and put the shingles directly on the decking. It is A...

Loft

Ok. I have seen this done on many occasion. Have worked on a number of homes with a vaulted ceiling. Essentially, it sounds as if the roof is going to stay vaulted. You are going to use the loft as...

Solar Panels

I would at least try another company. The reason I say this is because there are many companies out there, and there are many, many contractors. So one may have come across this type of roof and...

roof

Having done quite a bit of work on customer's trailers in the past, here is one good and low cost suggestion. I know you said that the cost isn't as much of an issue, but there are a few things you...

leak

I would say it depends when it comes to taking the tape off. If there is the same amount of leakage even with the tape there, then pulling the tape off isn't going to hurt. But if some of the leakage...

flat roof

It does sound like a new roof is needed. I personally wouldn't go back with asphalt and rock. I would scrape what is there and then go back with some kind of vinyl roofing such as PVC or TPO. PVC is...

vent

I agree with byhr3 - The fact that the carbon is linked with the gas isn't safe. Even though the air flows out, if for some reason it goes backwards, even for a second, could cause a mess or...

vent

I personally wouldn't go through the trouble of running the vent through the wall and out the roof since the structure is already existing. You can run into a lot of problems that way. We have had to...

Roof

Though BridgeMan45's opinion about the engineer IS NOT wrong (hope he doesn't take offense because as I said he isn't wrong), I wouldn't get one involved. Especially with a metal roof, the 4 on 12...

Metal roof

Though new to this forum, not new to installing metal roofs. It is better to have the stripping - even on a roof that has plywood decking - because you can have an air gap and add in the 4x8 sheets...
