  • Posted in thread: HELP!!! Why would anyone do this?! on 07-27-2016 at 07:31 AM
    My bet is a crack they tried to conceal. The laminate/vinyl did not adhere so now you have a
    larger problem.Scrape off the covering. The glue might be removable by spraying acetone on it
    and using a s...

    I am assuming you have removed the old track and installed a new track. You are capping the old
    red and neutral wires, leaving only one set of black and neutral wires. Also assuming all your

    Your lighting is single source from above. Casts a single cone of light and the deep shadow you
    don't want. A couple of options ...1. Remove the recessed light and replace with two new lights

    Knucklehead. Take a deep breath and agree to work together amicably. If he is eating the
    re-work cost, just make sure it is done properly without harassment. If he has a lawyer
    involved, things have a...

    I recently removed a nasty one. Torch heating is the best approach, assuming you haven't
    destroyed the nut. Be brave .... torch it all around the perimeter then use a cheater bar on a
    large pipe wrenc...

    That is ONE UGLY fireplace. The tool of choice is a rotohammer with several different bits. I
    would recommend an angle grinder with masonry disks. Both can be rented for reasonable fees.Cut
    the mantel...

  • Posted in thread: Laminate flooring 3 inch gaps help! on 07-06-2016 at 01:09 PM
    A picture would help. Carpeting should be to the midline of the door opening so the t-mold and
    carpet are covered by the door when it is closed. You could rip a piece of the laminate to
    place it in th...

    That is logical for a laundry location. The HOA can help quickly. Also, there should be an
    exhaust point, with a flapper, on the exterior wall. Also, you can ask your neighbors how they
    hooked up thei...

  • Posted in thread: Does this tile job look professionally done? on 07-05-2016 at 09:54 AM
    Uneven tile indicates either a poor preparation of the walls and floors OR really poor
    craftsmanship on tile setting. I would have them rip it out and re-do it. I have made tile
    setters do this and it...
