    It's nearly impossible to match if you're looking to buy a can of stain. The way to match an
    existing color is by blending stain. I've never used any stain right out of the can---I always
    mix my own t...

  • Posted in thread: How to determine power requirements for a generator and other questions on 03-01-2015 at 09:06 AM
    I've had a stand-by generator for 12 years which runs off of propane since I don't have natural
    gas way out here in the boonies. I sized it, not to handle absolutely EVERYTHING, but only what
    I would ...

    I agree with neal. Never paint or stain outside wood until it's had a long drying spell with no

    Sadly, I agree that there are many of these guys who are either drug users, or boozers, or
    both. They only work for the payday so they can go out and blow their money on their habit.
    Anyone who's alwa...

    Good for you!!!!! I'm glad you fired everyone. Some people in banks,etc. just don't want to
    finance a house in bad shape because banks just don't like ending up owning houses. They're in
    the banking b...

  • Posted in thread: What's your Temp? on 02-20-2015 at 11:59 AM
    Well, I for one am not going to complain about the cold. Anytime I'm not sweating---I'm happy.
    However, minus and single digit temps ARE a bit nippy. I like it when it's in the 20's or 30's.
    The worst...

    My experience with this sort of thing is-----I'm not gonna deal with it. I never work with
    people who I don't trust. You only know about what he HAS done--I imagine there are more things

    Also, allow every faucet to drip--that will keep the pipes from freezing, also.

  • Posted in thread: Outdoor Painting Tips (Concrete & Wood) on 02-20-2015 at 11:40 AM
    Painting wood outside is a constant affair, even when quality paints and good techniques are
    used. What I would suggest is to sand the chipping paint with a power sander. Or even a disc on
    a power dri...

  • Posted in thread: Propane heating usage per winter months... on 02-20-2015 at 11:16 AM
    That is WAY excessive, in my mind!!!!! I am heating 4900 sq. ft. of space here. House was built
    in 1999. And my propane bill for this winter is $2200 which is actually for the entire calendar
    year of ...
