Replace Furnace with humidifer

I just had a contractor saying he's never seen it. I told him I have a friend that I know has one. I haven't heard from him yet. But this contractor told me, that as the water goes from the humidifier into the duct work in the dead of winter it could freeze. Anyway does anyone know a place near AA, ...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

btw... I did completel this project a while ago. Nothing.. I mean almost nothing was as easy as the manual said it was going to be. The manual needs to co-written by an every man. Not done by guys that work at a particular store in a particular place. It just ended up being an extremely loose-guide....

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Another important question: I'm having trouble finding - 3in screws with neopreme washers - and people/builders at the stores look at me crazy wondering with this project why I would need that much distance? - There is one more location to try - or the internet to rush order them. I think I know, it...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

I think what I'm saying is: Your booklet that I purchased is supposed to be setup, for the every day guy like me (a software developer - who dabbles in projects around the house - and isn't all that great at them) It needs to be much more descriptive, and dumbed down (what are these products... if I...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

update on the project: Not having a good time buying the product. Checking off on the list. - 1box of 3in white sheet metal screws with neoprene washers <-- figured out right away you can't just get that anywhere. Home Depot/Lowes were a no. FanFold, doesn't come in 1/2 inch (atleast in my area)... ...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Well I would say because its not as easy as the instructions booklet says... also the 4x8 sheets are more expensive. I just priced out a home depot 4x8x1/2 sheet at $262 (to cover the house) On the hand... I can see your point. I looked at the fanfold stuff, and it had nothing to it. If I could find...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Ok important question...: I found FanFold Insulation - 50ft - however only 1/4 inch thick. The specs in the doc says, if alternate to fanfold, look for atleast 1/2 thick -- Is this the right stuff? http://www.lowes.com/pd_304092-210-304092.0_4294858106_4294937087_?productId=3122451&Ns=p_product_qty_...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

I tracked down a good location, and a good price to buy the metal. Fingerle Lumber (Ann Arbor, Mi) very local for me - Total Metal Cost for the Fabral should be 631.25 after tax. Not bad. I'm going to purchase on Friday (assuming the Park Boss does approve, he has the plans now. I need to track down...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Error... You should be replying to me. I need to submit my project to the 'park bosses' in the next two days. I must start the work by this weekend. I did find the originally linked Fabral from a Lowes about 20mins away. I think I need 21 pieces of it. After work to day I'm going to investigate a lu...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Since the required pitch can be thrown out. Would considering Ondura be a thought (crazy)? You showed me the link to the corrugated. Is there any reason a cheaper plain sheet metal variety wouldn't work? see this link for the cheaper corrugated: What about plain sheet metal with ribs? http://www.low...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

Ok the homedepot works, however when I center it in my area, it says the product is unavailable. But the Lowes seems to work. However it does say this: 'Minimum pitch required 2.5:12' - This is what I was referring to, in my earlier post. That when I did find metal that looked like what you speak ab...

Re: Installation of new Metal Roof question

" I know locally that Lowes & Home Depot carry that style steel.." As I said I went to Home Depot. And I saw the selection of Sheet metal available. There was one small little cubilcle of completely flat sheets of metal (not corrugated). Nothing that looked anything like the ones in the pics. Can yo...

Installation of new Metal Roof question

I have purchased the handbook: I went to Home-Depot and went searching for the metal that the handbook calls 'White Corrugated Metal'. This doesn't seem to be something that every lumber yard carries on hand. Started snooping around on-line, and found places that called metal 'corrugated', and most ...
