  • Posted in thread: window well pulled away from foundation on 04-25-2011 at 03:30 PM
    Since there are no pictures, I will assume the source of the water is the downspout and not

    foundation wall wil...

    I'm a little late to comment on this thread, but I found a solution to this problem different
    than the above comments. My situation was a pink tub made from cast iron with minor rust

    This happens in my rentals occasionally. The ice maker or water valve just quit working. I'm
    not an electrician, can't read a schematic, and can't afford a $200 service call from the Amana

  • Posted in thread: Mold in basement - how to remove on 04-19-2011 at 10:11 AM
    I will, without reservation, say it was worth the extra 100 dollars to do it per the

    these with go...

    We found mold in one unit of our 50-unit condo building last year. We hired a professional to

    issues tha...
