Re: Looking for opinion

I think it all depends on how much area you want each light to cover. Flush mount lights usually have a wider angle of coverage. And recessed are more like spot lighting. But looking at the pic you included that won't be much of an issue for you.

The hot cold plug looks like Moen.

That is true. But the is some really crappy ones out there too that have those.

If it's a Moen it will have markings some where on it.

My guess is Danze from home depot :p

Re: Vinyl floor in the kitchen

I am preparing to install Vinyl Planking in my kitchen. I have vinyl tiles that exist. I would leave the old tiles but I have a problem with height, as I have two steel doors to deal with. I have been removing the existing tiles but there is old glue on the sub floor. Is it correct that I have to r...

I heard that before painting it is necessary to degrease the surface .
If it's in a kitchen than it always a good idea to degrease, but if it's in a bed room or such,
I think he will be fine seeing he is removing "pop corn " but a good wipe down after never hurts.

Re: Sealing shower surround to tub

I agree with Shannon, that would be my way too. Also don't forget to fill the tub with water before you caulk it.

Re: Paint odor issue

If you have a window thats close by, try to do a negative air presure. Thats is done by putting the fan in a window and blowing it out the window instead of circulating in the room. Make sure to close all the doors in that room too if possible.

Re: Bathroom To Laundry Room

I am not good at plumbing by any means. But would it be possible for him to use the toilet drain a normal floor drain. I think with any laundry room you would want a floor drain., more so one a main floor one.

Re: Sanding primer or not

A. Spruce is 100% correct. If you skim coat after priming you are essentially starting all over again. You could keep doing that and end up with 2 foot thick walls. I dont know what you are in tending to use the wall for, but if you just like the glassy smooth finish, and not using it for a writting...

Re: Sanding primer or not

If you want as smooth as a finish as you can get sand between every coat very very lightly, and you are correct, if you are using a roller, there will always be a slight texture left. Spray guns will leave a smooth finish, but can be more of a headache if you make a mistake with them.

Re: Sanding primer or not

It all depends on what look you are going for. If you want a totally smooth finish you are going to have to sand it all lightly. If not you will always have the little dimples left by a roller. When I paint i usually just give it a sanding to knock off any of the high spots, as sanding walls to a pe...

Re: Deck Framing

Sorry I forgot to mention the dimensions, the top tier will be about 12x8 so the joist span will be roughly 11' 6", and the bottom tier will be about 12x10, so those joists will be roughly the same spam. So with that being said, I am over the total length of the beam with 2x8, and if I am reading th...
