    Ptrap drips after sink is used

    We put in a new vanity and ptrap. While water is running there is no water leaking. After we leave the bathroom there is a little drip coming somewhere we don’t know. All the plastic nuts are tight.

    Fixing garage floor

    Half of my garage is smooth. The other half looks like it is pitting or deteriorating. I know I can get concrete vinyl patch and cover the rough areas, if there anything else I can use to cover a larger area? Thanks

    Air hissing out of a closed outdoor faucet

    I have an outdoor faucet in my garage. It’s been leaking so I made sure it is closed very tight. There is no water dripping but I am hearing and feeling air coming out of the faucet. Anybody experience something like this before? Is it bad? How would I fix it?

    Clueless about repairing lawn

    We bought a house last October and we have noticed there are many spots of balding grass. The previous owners cut down 2 large trees that covered the back of the house so we have lots of bare spots there. This is one picture of my side yard. Where do I start? Any tips?

    Gaps in wood floor

    We have several areas in our house where our wood floors are getting small gaps between the slats. It’s not just 1 area but all over the 1st floor. The picture below is what one of the gaps look like. Does anybody know what is causing this and how to repair/prevent it from happening again? Thanks

    Crack in walls

    Yea I know. It’s bad. I’m thinking just using paintable caulk to cover it up. Or maybe just using drywall repair gunk in a can to fill it in.
