Re: FYI - Mobile POS device

I have a couple of suppliers that will charge and extra 2% or so if you pay using a credit card. Noit sure of the legalities here but honestly for smaller businesses it makes sense or they are stuck with it. Or what actually happens is they have to increase prices slightly to everyone to help cover ...

Re: Basement insulation remodel

No moisture barrier will for sure leave you in a code violation situation. This is the material used between the insulation and the concrete wall. You keep calling it a vapour barrier but it is not. The vapour barrier is placed over the framing under the drywall.

Re: Mudding uneven joints

That is going to be real difficult to hide and feather because you are so close to the new corner. Does it look like the old would drywall would be closer further up the wall away from that old edge? If it is I would cut the old drywall and the small 1-1/2" new strip out, and replace with one new pi...

Re: How To Install a Window with a Nailing Flange

Likely what I use is pretty much some kind of spray glue but it is listed as a primer. What membrane product are you using? Does it require a primer? If it does the retailer that sold the membrane to you should have or be able to get the proper primer.

This is an alternative, but I'd like to find the kind with the arm on top, not the back of the door.
So you want the door strap to be on the outside? Hmm ,not sure I have seen that.

Re: Vinyl Siding at Garage door enclosure

The strips are only over the stucco area so you have something to attach the siding to and to keep it away from the stucco surface and the plywood sheeting is over the new wall. Attach the house wrap over the entire surface covering the straps and the sheets.
