It is a solid service material and you can see it in all McDonalds restaurants, their countertops are made of it. So are Walmarts bathroom sinks. It is about 1/3 more than finberglass kits but ...

Re: Installation of a ceiling fan

You can put a ceiling fan on a vaulted ceiling. I just bought one that mounts three differant ways. Either flush to the ceiling, on a down rod or on a angle. From what I have been told at HD almost any fans that are on a down rod can be mounted on an angle, they just need the correct top bracket. Th...

outdoor water faucet?

I have a leeking faucet, the ones that come out of the house to hook up a hose. Is there anything special in taking it off and instailling a new one compared to a stick house? My lawn is dying and need to fix this tomorrow.

Repairing walls

I need to either repair or replace the drywall in one of my bedrooms. When my son moved out he had destroyed his walls. There is holes all over the walls along with what looks like wax dripping all over the walls. I am afraid if I try and remove this wax or what ever it is, the walls will be damaged...

Re: true hard wood flooring vs laminate

After looking harder I found what I want in an enginered hardwood. This will give me the best of both worlds. I need something that will hold up to my motorized chair which can be hard on floors, especially carpeting.

true hard wood flooring vs laminate

I was at a home show recently and was told that I could instale true hard wood flooring in my double wide without any trouble. They told me that they instale it in a lot of mobile homes. I thought laminant flooring was what needed to be used because of the shifting of the house. I also am in the pro...

We can't use anything but the vinyl skirting. Do you have any ideas on how to reinforce the skirting?

Re: Moving gas water heater

I understand what JD is saying about puting it in a bedroom that is used as a bedroom. This room is used as a study and exercise room. As far as danger currently it is 3 feet away from the master bedroom. in the proposed location it would be about the same distance from the second bedroom.
