You may really want to rethink this. 18-20 inches above the cooktop is very low and may well hit you in the face when cooking. Ours is about 28 i...
Yes! You need to have your water tested as it come from the well. It may be caused by the system in your house or may just be 'bad' water from th...
Better yet, get it pre-primed and do not apply it when wet. The primer will keep water from soaking into the product but best to be safe. While w...
Before you go to a great expense, remove the faucet aereator and clean all the small holes. These typically clog after repair of older pipes.
Best check with local building codes. Some basement windows must meet egress requirements and am not sure double hung will meet codes??
We are in the final stages of building a new home. Our arrangement with the builder allowed us complete access so I've spent lots of time at the c...

Check under GeoThermal Heating and Cooling. Systems like this generally use the constant temperature of the underground 'coolant' to support a 're...
We're in the same position except that we ran out of available cash after all the 'upgrades' we required. Don't think time is an issue unless ther...
