Post: RE: Should I install furnace vent screens?

I’ve treated thousands of wasp nests and never seen one in the intake or exhaust of a furnace. Around the opening outside the pipe in the sill plate, yes, but in the furnace, no. It certainly co...

Post: RE: floor refinishing

Strip the carpet first. You may find that you don’t need to refinish, or you may find the carpet was glued down, which is a mess.

I have not seen any options for different color units. I suppose a unit could be sprayed any color you’d like.

If you feel comfortable running circuits, why not install the subpanel yourself?

Post: RE: Gutter Guards

I’d think a 12/12 pitch (45 degrees) would be pretty rare down there. The most common pitch up here is 6/12, you can easily walk on it. Capes often have 9/12 or 10/12. With cougar paws on you ca...

I think you need a longer plane to flatten that out. It’s looking dished in the middle. (Just kidding!). I can’t wait to see the progress!

What are you basing your claim that 1oz per gallon is not much? In my experience, drift from the wind is enough to kill many plants.

Post: RE: "board and batten" style wainscot layout

The bathroom I did was small, so things like the toilet, vanity, and door trim easily hid irregular width boards. I’d start in the most visible corner and work out from there. Since the board and...

Post: RE: Moisture Content

This explanation makes sense, but it doesn’t act the same as it does in a piece of firewood. When you split a piece of firewood, the inside is wetter than the outside.
