Got a quote for a roofover...

Hi, it's me again! Okay, my husband surprised me and decided the roofover would be a better option than the "pole barn" option. I've gotten a quote, which includes all materials and labor, of $4650. This is for a 1-foot overhang on the long sides and 6-inch overhang on each end, 3-inch foam insulati...

RE: Confused about roofing...

Yanita, That is amazing, that you were able to save that much on your electric bills! That's what I'm screaming!! Well, if you all seem to think I'd be better off replacing windows that a new roof, the old of which is not leaking and still looks very good, maybe I should approach my husband about wi...

RE: Confused about roofing...

Yanita,

What kind of windows did you buy, where did you get them, and ballpark how much are they? I'm looking at Lowe's. com and have NO idea what I'm looking for! Did you install them yourself?

RE: Confused about roofing...

Yanita, LOL at myself!! I typed humidifier, then when I was going to google, I was like, no wait, a HUMIDIFIER was something I had for my baby when she was little, added moisture to the air, definitely not what I wanted to do. I did google them, some of them look quite nice, I might have to consider...

RE: Confused about roofing...

JD, thanks for replying so quickly! So in your opinion, the "pole barn" is not actually a bad idea? See, my husband, tho I love him dearly, sometimes does not know what the heck he is talking about. I just wanted somebody's opinion who actually does this kind of work who really knows what they are t...

RE: Confused about roofing...

Thanks for the replies. Aaron, why would putting a new roof on our MH be a waste of time and money? If it would help save money on our electric bill, it would seem to justify the expense. We aren't currently having any problems with the roof, tho - no leaks anywhere. It's only 15 years old and very ...

Confused about roofing...

Hello again to all... It's been a while. The next project, it looks like, for us is roof. There's nothing wrong with our roof, which is tin, I guess, or metal, from the factory. See picture below. Husband and I were talking about doing something about it, to help save on our electric bill. Geez, it'...

RE: Does anyone, anywhere manufacture a QUALITY mobile home?

I totally agree, Yanita. Our house brand new costs us approx. $27,000. So, now we are able to re-do some of this stuff, but I agree with you about buying another completely stripped. We didn't buy any appliances or furniture in ours, we already had most of the stuff anyway, and the appliances and fu...

RE: PICTURES**Can this bath tub be PAINTED?

That damage looks similar to mine, maybe a little worse. I have a really small octagonal window that I covered shortly after I realized the light was damaging my tub. But it continued to get worse, even tho I had the window covered with foil. Then recently I read somewhere that Dow scrubbing bubbles...

RE: Does anyone, anywhere manufacture a QUALITY mobile home?

I've got to put my two cents in as well! We ordered our mh built in 1994, I believe it came from Alabama. And for a long time I was really happy with it, because it was so much bigger and better than the little 14x60 we lived in before. But as time went by, I realized how shoddy the materials are th...

RE: Is this bathroom remodel possible?

Okay, new plan! I talked it over with my dear hubby and he and I have agreed on a plan. My plan is to buy a replacement tub, since I can't get mine white again, repair the shower and maybe buy a new door, new vanities, new vinyl floor, etc. My newest question is: I've found a similar tub at Lowes.co...

RE: Is this bathroom remodel possible?

Okay Greg & oldfart, you're scaring me! Seriously, down to the studs?? Not even considering something so extensive. So, new plan: new surround for shower, new vanities (2, just to replace the current ones), new storage cabinets, and last, new whirlpool bathtub (if I can't figure out some way to clea...

RE: Looking for advise on re leveling a mobile home.

I'll put my two cents in, because we recently had this done. We hired somebody to do it, seemed much easier to just write a check! Ours was pretty bad out of level, I think for 2 reasons. Number 1, it never was blocked up the way it should have been. Not nearly enough blocks under it. And number 2, ...

Is this bathroom remodel possible?

I have several things in mind for my master bathroom. 1) Where hubby's vanity is, I want to put in a 4-ft. shower with shower pan and surround. 2) Where current little bitty shower is, I want to put commode. 3) Where my vanity is, I want to put in a long vanity with double sinks. Really, the only th...

RE: vinyl floor lifting

My husband and I put down some new vinyl flooring in our small bathroom and we didn't glue the floor down. Quite honestly, it was all we could do to just manage the floor, not to mention any glue! But we had that same problem. Whenever the heater came on, the floor looked like it might take flight! ...
