Re: Glass storm door FRAME only?

Thanks for everyone's help! I am going to see if I can go on a hunting mission this weekend and find something to use. But first, my water heater decided today it needed some attention. LOL. I replaced the top element and now have hot water, but it is seems like the hot water is running out a lot qu...

Re: Glass storm door FRAME only?

Yes, we can lift the door and hold it in the right spot. I have been thinking the same thing, some kind of spacer to slide in there, but I am not sure what to use or where I would even go to find something like that. I was even thinking a bunch of small metal washers piled up on top of each other to...

Re: Glass storm door FRAME only?

Is there a way to post a picture? I am guessing from the Lowe's employee, the problem we are having isn't very common as he made the comment, "Is your door that heavy?" A picture that I took would show exactly what I am talking about, if there is a way to post it.

Glass storm door FRAME only?

It is becoming apparent to me that the part I am looking for is possibly not even available. I know the people on this forum are super informative, so I thought I'd post what I am looking for on here. I need just the FRAME for the glass storm door. The aluminum frame that screws onto the outside. Th...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

Thank you! I am thinking, while I don't feel we have the air flow we should have, I think the humidity is what is causing the AC to run all the time. Today is 100, but feels like 108-110. LOTS of humidity in the air. Last week when we had a little "cold" front and the house actually cooled...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

Ha,ha!! Brenda funny you should mention that, we actually DID put in 2 doors that went all the way to the carpet. They were that way for several years. We figured out that was a no-no about a month ago. Yeah, we are slow learners. DOH! We fixed the doors, but still don't seem to have the air flow we...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

Thank you so much Robert! We will give this a try this weekend. Thankfully we are suppose to get some cooler weather after today. Ha,ha...if you call 90ish degree "cooler", but beats the heck out of 100+! I have one more question. Is there a purpose for the register covers to vent the air ...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

You are correct, EB15C. I was going off the techs handwriting on the paperwork. His E's look like R's to me.

Hope doctor's visit goes well!

Thank you for the prayers for their family, they really need them right now.

RB15C with a serial number of WOM8455442. Coleman. We have not yet heard from our friends nephew, but our friend's infant granddaughter is in the hospital with a condition the doctor's can't figure out.

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

Thank you Greg! We have done the flashlight and mirror check, but aren't finding anything. We did the flashlight and mirror with the old AC and never saw that the duct work leading up to the furnace had holes in it. I can see where the duct connects with the furnace, but can't actually inspect it wi...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

According to hubby, we have 2x4 studding. Since this posting is about us insulating and trying to keep our cool air in the house, here is another question. We replaced the AC two years ago. At first we had great air flow again, then a few months later, we were back to low air flow in the living room...

Re: Residing and Insulating outer walls

Thank you both so much for the replies. You both have given me good information on what products I need to start looking at and pricing them. I know we need to watch the weight issue as we have already added extra weight with the roof over. Our neighbor bought some cement siding and used it as his u...

So here goes, we are looking into reinsulating and then residing our 1993 single wide 18x76 Fleetwood. We are the original owners. Our siding is falling ...

Re: Garden Tub/Shower

Well, in my mind...it was a good idea, then I went back and looked at the diverter and realized that it is for a faucet that mounts to the inside wall of the tub. **sigh** Ours in mounted on the ridge that runs around the top of the tub. I think we are going to go check out Lowe's and Home Depot and...
