Re: Replace brickmould around door

Just watched the "install an exterior door" video, looks like you do put silicone right behind the brickmould. I really doubt my garage builder installed that membrane around the door frame over the house wrap! Wow, that is very good sealing against water intrusion. I guess I'll see once I get the o...

Re: Replace brickmould around door

So cut the house wrap with a utility knife right at the edge of the J (using the J as a guide), and run a nice tight bead of sealant in the corners where the J meets the sheathing. Wait for that to dry, then just attach the new brickmould right to the exposed sheathing bordering the doorframe. No se...

Re: Replace brickmould around door

Can you just use the same primer and cement you use for PVC plumbing joints? I'd imagine? Should or can it be painted with exterior paint? I mean the PVC is white already so it's probably okay. I'll do the sealant behind the mould, I would bet dollars to donuts my builder didn't do that in the first...

Replace brickmould around door

Hi guys, I'm gonna replace this crappy weathered brick mould with the PVC kind. Is it just a matter of prying this old stuff off and cutting/mitering to fit the new stuff on? Any caulks or sealants needed? Anything weird issues with J channel or drip cap that I have to worry about? 48323DAC-37DF-4D8...

Re: Peeling Paint, just seal it?

Zinsser B-I-N is a great primer for that sort of thing, I think. It's a white pigmented shellac, and it covers stains and has amazing adhesion. I would use a coat of B-I-N first, let it dry, then put Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer over that before putting a couple topcoats over that. If the old pain...

Since there is only one game per platform that has ever interested me, sounds like a better plan is to simply set up a PC with emulators for all the consoles. No hacking necessary, unless you consider emulators hacking! :lol:
Yeah, agreed, that's probably the way to go.

Re: M16 pot light conversion to LED

It's not. The bulbs he took out were 12V.

It's what I feared, he'd have to cut out drywall. And with a textured ceiling? That would be hard to hide.

Honestly, though, I am a big fan of the bright glow of halogen bulbs. They put out a very nice warm but intensely bright light.

The original Xbox is very old. I had a second-hand one for a short time so I could hack it to install a bigger hard drive with a catalog of games, removing the requirement for loading one game per disc. After I successfully did the hack I lost interest and gave it away. Interestingly, old Xbox is ju...

Oh, a limiter switch! I should have known that's what that is. That probably opens the 120v, wouldn't you say?

I've had an NES, SNES, N64, and Wii. The NES had the most "magic", SNES wowed me the most with video and sound, and the Wii was just plain fun and entertaining many many years after the N64, which was a too-little too-late followup to SNES and made me lose interest in consoles in general until the W...

Re: M16 pot light conversion to LED

Yikes... so the wires that come into the can just goes through a grommet in the housing that is up above in the drywall of the ceiling through the can hole? If so, that would mean that the 120V connection might reside outside of the housing. In that case, you'd need to cut away ceiling drywall to ac...

I agree that is an IC can so it wont come through the hole at all. Why two sets of wires? Whats on the ends? Looking at that pic with the two sets of wires more carefully, it looks like there's a box shroud in the joist cavity. You can sort of see it through the hole in the drywall. You covered tha...

Re: Furnace heat exchanger requires replacement - disconnected it!

I think one of the symptoms of a failing heat exchanger is the release of higher PPMs of carbon monoxide. If you have a meter, or perhaps even a CO detector, it can be tool that might corroborate your initial tech's findings. But residential heating/cooking companies do have a bad rep for suggesting...
