Have you considered the fiber-cement products like HardiPanels? Non-flamable and pretty indestructable. Some look just like shakes.
What size pressure tank do you have? Sounds like it's too small and requires the pump to operate anytime water is demanded. I'm installing a 220 g...
It seems to be a good brand but there are levels of quality within any brand. Check out the warranty (i.e., 25 yr, 40 yr, 50 yr) and the other spe...
Agree with previous poster. A bathroom type vent fan would work but you need to know how much air you need to move in cubic feet per minute. Get ...
Look for the 'Impact Resistance' rating. Class 4 is the highest. An article here may help:http://www.tdi.state.tx.us/commish/columns/cc0599.html

Tom, I believe your 'slap stapler' will do the job just fine. The only possible problem could be wind that would tend to tear the housewrap off un...
Does it drain at all or is it just slow? It could be a blocked vent pipe. In that case someone would have to go on the roof and run a 'snake' dow...
I, too, am a little confused. A vapor barrier is used on the inside of the insulation, not on the outside walls. The point is to prevent moisture...
Larry, we are having a new home built out in the country and had the same question. Our plumber recommends we install a separate 'daylight' drain ...
Well water can contain almost anything. A good reason to have it tested. Most water treatment companies will test for free; however, this usually...
Check the bottom of the freezer to see if ice has formed. May have blocked the drain hole and that may cause leaks as the defrost cycle functions....
Sounds like some of that 'gunk' got in the water lines and has clogged the faucet aereator (sp?). Unscrew it and clean. Try with it removed to se...
