If the fibers are hard that means the paint has dried in them. Once that happens the roller cover is useless and has to be replaced; it must stay wet if it has paint in it. What do you do with the...

What do you mean by dense? If you're cleaning the roller properly it shouldn't be any more dense than it was when you started. Do you mean the aggregate is collecting in the fibers as you roll? If...

Success! I finally removed that darn bolt yesterday. I ground down the lock washer some, then chiseled it out the rest of the way and didn't damage the bolt. I figured I'd have to put a wrench on it...

Thanks, repair_guy. That's one of the things I was wondering about if I heated up the bolt, so I won't do that.

In order to assure a good bond, you need to scuff the laminate by lightly sanding all surfaces you are going to paint with 80 or 100 grip paper. Clean off the dust, prime and paint.

The OP mentions the sag is in a bathroom. The problem could be the result of damage to structural members done by water leakage over time. I would check for that before I started jacking up the floor.
