    Welcome to the site. I have found this the BEST group of people EVER. It is important to know
    location--sink hole or freezing--big difference. Besides, why has the garage wall brick been
    smoothed on t...

    I've seen that look as well, but only industrial use:rolleyes: . I'd vote for the tile or
    composit rock for a more updated approach. Also less risk of future water stains;) ! The key is
    to prep so the...

    I have a 24-year old son who loves to bash things:D ...I think I'll give him this project if he
    agrees to wear protective gear! Might it be worth a couple rolls of duck tape to hold down the

    What room is this in...are you expecting a lot of water on the floor so you have to worry about
    mold:eek: ? My brother installs professionally and I've never seen him seal the perimeter with

  • Posted in thread: Remodeling home...consult architect or interior designer first? on 11-10-2008 at 01:35 PM
    Agreed! We had a major project and realized atchitects and interior designers are like oil and
    water. They have separate areas of expertise and often do not cooperate if they are from
    different compan...

    I've seen a lot of it. Some is more relaxing:) . Some is down right ugly (and expensive:mad: )!
    Like any design work, make certain you check references and see a lot of before/after pictures
    before yo...

  • Posted in thread: Installing painted molding:paint on or off wall? on 11-10-2008 at 01:17 PM
    Paint then install hands down! If you do a lot, spraying saves tons of time but not worthwhile
    because of cleanup for small jobs. I prefer stained/varnished vs. painted...but despise masking
    no matter...

    We have a blue, ceramic coated, cast-iron tub that has to go! My brother said you use a sledge
    hammer and break it up:eek: . Anyone done this? What do I watch out for:confused: ?

  • Posted in thread: Help Please! Slate on Wall on 07-03-2007 at 12:25 PM
    Sorry, but tile needs a cement base. Take it all down to the studs and put up Durarock or
    Hardibacker first (could go over...but why...might find they went over brick underneath
    already!). If your cem...

    -- You can contact the company from this URL. The real question is what did they do to
    enhance it for the photo?!? I found some pavers in a flier I was interested in. Went to pick
    some up and found ...
