    Painting over exterior semi gloss paint.

    Hello. Need to repaint my fascia which presently has semi-gloss paint on it. I've already scrapped it. I know I should clean the fascia and I've read that I should sand down the paint on it now so the new semi gloss paint will adhere better. I understand that. But what I'd like to know is...

    I can't do any of that so I'll have to pay someone. I just wanted some input on the cause since I couldn't duplicate the trouble. Thanks

    Identifying leak source

    Hello. Recently, my wife moved a bed to clean under it and we discovered that the drywall by the floor trim is bulging out, the trim itself is warped and also bulging, and the adjacent wood flooring is also slightly warped. Also, about 3 feet directly above this damage, there's a line break in...

    nealtw. Yes, I already did that and it was hot. Matter of fact the cold water line into the hot water heater has been consistently hot. I don't have one of those thermal expansion tanks.

    Well, after doing a little research, I went and bought a water pressure gauge with a lazy hand. I installed it on the outside water spigot to see what the pressure was there. It was 122 which is a lot higher than 80 so I guess I need a need regulator. I'll leave it there for 24 hours to see...

    Garmo, Thanks for the reply. Here's the latest: I ended up closing all the single handle faucets except for one which was stuck and the problem continued. And I closed off the clothes washer too. So I figured it was the hot water heater letting water go backwards into the cold water line or...

    nealtw, i just took a good look under my kitchen sink and there is a box called an in sinkerator instant hot water dispenser. Now I didn't think it was an issue since I unplugged it when we moved in 8 months ago. I see it has a line from the cold water side but if it's unplugged I don't see...

    nealtw, ok I looked on line and I see that that device is installed on the hot water line near where it exits the hot water heater and then there are connecting devices that you put under a sink which connects the hot and cold water. I don't have anything like this on my hot water line out of...

    nealtw, don't know. From what I've read that's a pump that provides nearly instant hot water. But we've never had instant hot water in the 8 months that we've lived in this house so if there is such a pump it's never worked. I looked in the closet where my water heater is at but I don't see...

    nealtw, I did what you recommended two times. It took a while because most of the time the water comes thru cool as it should through the kitchen faucet and other faucets. Two times now it's come thru hot at the kitchen faucet. Both times this happened I felt both lines to this faucet and the...

    Hello Nealtw, thanks for the response. I'll give that a try. If I understand what you're saying tho, it's possible that even a regular two handled faucet could be to blame? Thankss again, Joe

    Hello. I'm having a problem with hot water coming out of my cold water taps at times (even ones that have two handles). From what I've read, single handle faucets and valves that have become defective can cause this. Sometimes, once it starts, the hot water doesn't finally cool down after I...

    fascia with no rafters

    I just got done removing most of the horizontal fascia (which is attached to the rafters) and there was one little piece that they nailed the heck out of from above and it took me over two hours to remove it since there were so many nails into it from above. It was only about two and a half...
