Attic, you are being WAY to general. That would be like me saying that natural wood will get dry-rot. Or be attacked by termites, or will splinter and warp.

Here are a few of the various...

Thermocast Sink

We bought our house new about 4.5 years ago. All the appliances are black, but the kitchen sink was the shallow contractor grade steel one. So we bought a nice Thermocast black sink from Home...

Saying that composite decking is 7-12 times more expensive than treated is a little general do you think? Mine was about 3 times more. I spent about $6000 on a 12x20 Evergrain deck. The treated...

So you are saying that it is probably not in the plumbing, but in the sink itself? I'll try the bleach overflow technique.

Thanks

sulfer smell in upstairs bathroom sink

The smell comes and goes. Most of the time you can't smell it until you run some water down the drain. It isn't coming from the hot water heater either. Is there some sort of better trap I can put...

Wow, thank you. Those points are well taken. I think I'll stick with the B&D cordless tools. I don't use them all that much and they are less expensive.

Thank you everyone. As usual, I will probably do nothing. It's worked so far for me, and I'm pretty lazy when it comes to tending my lawn. I'll just put down the winterizer and cross my fingers.

If my lawn looks healthy, is a nice dark green, do I need to seed it every year? I'll put down a winterizer, but I usually don't even core it. I see my neighbors doing core aeration and seeding and...

I know, but I'm a recycler, if somebody has one they don't use, I'd really rather buy one off them. Rather than feeding the MS machine another $30.
