Standing water on shower tile

We bought a renovated house in August - from what...

We recently bought a house with a lower half-basement level. We are renting that lower level out to a couple college kids while our family lives upstairs. There's a separate entrance downstairs in...

I think there are a couple 10 ft runs, and a few that are longer. We got a rough estimate on seamless gutters - $300. I would be okay paying that but my husband feels like he's wanting to do it...

Thanks for all of the thoughts and opinions. I never noticed until we bought this house, but 95% of the homes in my neighborhood (or even the entire town for that matter) do not have gutters. The...

Got it. Ok, I will suggest to my husband that we check it this weekend. Will we know right away if that is the source? I'm just wondering if we should just plan to replace it no matter what. Or will...

Thanks Dane. I guess it's worth a shot but I'm hesitant because it's a brand new bathroom...could the wax ring really have been damaged already? The bathroom was added probably less than a year ago....

The smell is back tonight...we checked to see if it's stronger around the toilet, but it seems to be coming most strongly from the cabinet below our sinks. We have two sinks and it smells stronger...

sorry - I am very new to sewage-like smells in our home, this is not something I've ever dealt with before. We've never owned a house as old as this one, nor one with septic. I am truly a fish out of...

How necessary are gutters?

I've never had a house withOUT gutters, so it's weird to ask this question. We just bought an older house in Northern AZ - it's apparently very common here for houses, especially old ones, not to...

I guess that makes sense...so it's normal for it to be smelly up there? The plumbing guy made it seem like it wasn't. I'm very new to all this, didn't even know we had a vent on the roof until...

So, I'm back. We did follow the suggestions from earlier - I found the septic inspection report and date of last pumping in our closing papers. We got on the roof and checked the vent up there - no...
