Re: Atwood storm door hinge

I have never seen a frame like that. You could check Ebay for hinges or possibly make a conventional hinge work.

Re: Atwood storm door hinge

that is called "planned obsolescence" by the time things wear out parts are no longer available. New doors run between $100 - 300 depending on what you want. Plan on around $200 for a good door. Any home center has doors that will fit there is an article in the articles section if you need to cut it...

Re: 7" x 1/2" fascia board?

A 1x is actual 3/4" thick so you would only be 1/4" thicker. It would be an easy job to bend flashing to fit, just 2 bends to fit around the bottom and slip the top under the drip edge.

Re: Really Strange Ceiling

new home? that would take me back to a poor seam job from the factory. I would show them the picture and see what they have to offer.

Re: 7" x 1/2" fascia board?

I would replace it with 1x8 ripped to the width. then rent a break and bend aluminum flashing across the home. all you have to do is bend a U that fits under the drip edge of the roof, across the facia and overlap the soffit.

Re: Replacing wall studs and joist band

I would cut the rotted wood off, add a block in and sister the area up with an other section of stud. Piece in sheathing as needed before residing.

Re: Really Strange Ceiling

My first thought is a bad seam job from the factory. How is the roof? Ours started to show the trusses before I replaced the roof the trusses showed due to moisture so you may want to get a look at it and check it close.

Re: Roof Leaks

I have always had good luck with the Elastomeric sealers, just pool them on, but if you have rust holes they will need to be repaired and it will only be a temporary repair. I ended up doing a roof over on our's 2 years ago.

Re: Floor warping

Is it by an outside wall? There may be a leak somewhere. There could be a condensation problem but I would look elsewhere first.

Re: Kicking the skirting venting dead-horse, again

What do you have for a ground moisture barrier? Code requires a minimum of 6 mil plastic if not a full concrete pad. During warm months ground moisture is trapped by the skirting and with no vents enters into the home through the floor. 1sq/ft of vent pre every 150 /ft of floor space. Trust me, I've...

Re: Hook up a dishwasher in mobile home?

I personally don't like the portable units. Floor space in mobiles are limited at best and I can't see taking up space with a dishwasher. As for the plumbing I suspect there are local codes that would answer that question. As far as leaving the water on it should be the same as a washing machine, as...

Re: Junction box wiring above laundry

I would leave it, perhaps find a cover that blends in.
