Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Crazy weekend up here. We had a pair of tornados touch down yesterday and tear things up. My neighbourhood actually got directly yet. It’s crazy how things go, my house and many around me are basically completely unscathed. The attached photos are literally 200m(1/8th if a mile) down the road from ...

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Thanks guys. This was the last pic I took of this crazy boy, last Sunday. I loved this cat and I'm gonna miss him. He's laying on a step stool that he could climb up to drink water at the bath faucet. He lost muscle mass quickly and really shed weight. His body was shutting down and I was probably ...

No flashing between deck and vinyl siding...

Hello,

Realized from watching your video and some investigation of my deck that it appears no flashing was used. House has vinyl siding.
Is there any way to rectify this?


Thanks

So, I mentioned that I was repairing a really dry rot damaged deck. Everything was going fine until I got to this last section, it was so bad it just gave way right out from under my feet! :o :mrgreen: :lol:

Re: Waterproofing dimpled membrane?

Crack seems fine but like I said hard to tell exactly . Have someone come i and have a look if you are sceptical. I’m not sure that is a beam? Looks like blocking between the joist? Soooo, I fixed the crack with epoxy as it ran along the footer. I see what you mean about "looks like blocking betwee...

Can you post a pic of the attachment mechanism?

Loc-tite might do the trick, it's worth a shot. I'd double check that the faucet was installed properly before doing anything else.
Mine was indeed installed upside down as well. Thanks All!!! :D

Hi Shannon, I have a few more pictures of the crack. Also, would like your opinion on the ducts notched through the beam. Found 2 hidden junction boxes.
Great advice to remove the drywall form the ceiling.

The very bottom picture looks like the joint between the floor and the footing? Not much you can do with that. The middle picture looks to be a very minor crack and is likely fine to leave . If the two sides of the crack are really different elevations or the crack is more then1/4" wide you may wan...

I'm not a pro but... replace the air register and clean the grout? Guess I should have been more specific, what is the best cleaner to use for the grout? I use baking soda and vinegar and a grout brush very effective. There are many online posts and videos but here is one. https://www.decoist.com/c...
