That is not a good place for a deck! You need to have air circulation under the deck so it doesn't stay moist. You'd be better off with a concrete patio ..... or even pavers.

Latex paint adheres decent to new galvanized metal. The better quality latex house paints won't fade as quick as their cheaper counterpart. I'd use a paint with a sheen rather than flat. The only...

Your link doesn't work :(

As long as you didn't sand thru the veneer you are probably ok. It's not too late to use a chemical stripper. Be sure to read the label as most need neutralizing after...

I agree, I'd sand and/or wire brush off the rust the best I could, prime with Rustoleum's rusty metal primer and top coat with your choice of exterior oil base enamel.

It shouldn't hurt anything to remove those landscape timbers.
Basically it's just a border for 'flower' garden.

I assume this is galvanized metal ?? how old is it?
I'd clean the roof and apply a solvent based primer and your choice of exterior oil base enamel. Lighter colors won't fade as bad as darker ones.

Saturday I need to go get 6 sheets of 5/8" drywall 12' long. My truck bed including the tailgate is just under 9'. Will the unsupported 3' be an issue? I could buy three 12' 2x4s but I'd rather not...

I'm not sure if it's orange peel or roller stipple but either way you need a light texture so the repair doesn't stand out.

Like X I have always sprayed the doors standing up set in a domino like fashion. I've don't bother with the sticks tacked to the top, the little area where the doors touch is easy to touch up if...

I'd think the extra moisture comes from the jacuzzi. The deck could be pitched ever so slightly to that corner also.

I agree, wallpaper patterns/styles change over time and even when the same style/pattern is still used dye lots will result in color differences. There are a few companies that custom print paper. I...

That rim joist should be replaced. If you go under the deck and temporarily support the deck you should be able to replace those boards without removing the jacuzzi.

Ya, it's most likely water damage. You want to make sure that is rectified before making any plaster repairs! I've taken a appropriate sized piece of drywall and set in into holes like that using ...

Welcome to the forums Tim!
It looks like they used spray foam to fill the gap under the threshold. It's common for it to expand and the unsupported portion to fall out. I'd probably add a strip of...

I doubt any decorative box will do much to fix the wobble. I agree it would be best to remove the posts/rail and install ones you like - set securely in the ground.

You could sand out the grooves [and paint] with either a belt sander or 7" sander/grinder. If you want to leave the grooves you'd need to use a chemical stripper.
