  • Posted in thread: Help with a deck project on 06-17-2008 at 06:39 PM
    with 10 feet and only a 12 inch drop I would be thinking of bulding a small deck with a 6 inch
    drop. Cover the whole area.

    I"ve never tried this. Sounds like a tough spot. Great seal expands alot. Maybe fill tub up
    with water 1st. Good luck.

    Hi: I"m not a plumber. I"ve lived in my home 19 years. Borrow money if you have to. Buy the
    most expensive one. Then you"ll be done.

    Porter cable is a good brand. Keep in your not gonna use hard it every day. I've used an
    electric compressor for years. Don't recommend them for roofing guns. Good roofers kill them
    pretty quick. Walk...

    I'm sorry but it seems like your question is a joke. 16 penny nails are bigger. If you go to a
    hardware store you can see why I'm perplexed.

    The only thing I would do at this point is find a similar shade system and try to see why yours
    is different. Probably missed a step somewhere.
