    Re: Recessed Lighting

    Very odd. My first thought was that maybe the thermo shut-off switch on teh can is defective... but I doubt that would cycle on and off like that! Next, I wonder if there's another heat source close...

    Re: Under cabinet lighting

    Ceiling light fixtures usually contain a think piece of fiberglass insulation with one sided coated with a "tin foil" like surface... I wonder if you could find that at the store if that would help...
  3. Re: Leaky shower head when bath faucet is running

    I almost sounds like something wrong in the value itself. Sems like when it's in faucet mode, a little bit is leaking into the shower riser tube and running out the shower head. Did you buy teh...

    Re: Wet walls and ceiling

    Could be many things. Might be an easy fix or a hard to find one. Here are my thoughts: 1) Check any leaking pipe that might be above that area, 2) Is it worse when it rains? Only when it rains?...

    Re: return air ducts

    I would probably close it off to be safe, but you're not necessarily in a bad situation here. Better to be safe, though.

    Re: floor joist and parallel partition wall

    I really don't follow your whole description, but in general, yes, I'd (hurry) "sister" a new floor joist next to the one with a rotted end. That may be tough is the floor is sagging a bit, so...
  7. Re: Removing wallpaper and paint is pulling drywall paper off

    I have outlawed all wallpaper in my house for this very reason! I have successfully re-skimmed areas of drywall and sanded to a successful conclusion... and I'm a weekend warrior, so I'm sure you can...

    Re: texture coat on interior walls

    Yuk! I feel for you! I'm anxious to see what some expert says... because I'm concerned you're in a tough situation: I think old stucco like that is probably so old and dry that it will continue to...
  9. Re: Painting Pressed Board Cabinets in the kitchen of my mobel home

    I'm nervous that you're painting a veneer or some other sort of laminate, but that's not your question: any laminate or veneer is applied using glue... then typcially cured using heat and pressure. ...

    Re: applying stain in cold weather

    I'm no expert on pianting or staining, but I'd suggest no to painting and try an area with stain first. I suspect you'll be happier with the end result if you waited for 60 degree weather next...

    Re: particle board

    A. Spruce is right! You'll be surprised at how much teh grain jumps up on the first coat! I'll bet it will be really rough and you'll have to sand (painted or stained!) prior to the next coat. I've...

    Re: wood conditioning prior to painting

    I'm definitiely no expert, but it sounds wierd to me. Seems like the thinning agent would hurt the alkide's adhesion, but maybe this client is a "chemist" and knows it's right. I'd say this is more...

    Re: beadboard vs drywall for ceilings

    I can't think of any structural problems with using beadboard. I think it's mostly preference on your part. Some cautions I'd be aware of using beadboard: 1) It's thinner and less dense than drywall...

    Re: single rotted stud

    I would suggest you replace it! One option: go buy a new green "treated" stud, cut it so it fits along side the rotted stud snug (so you'll have to use a hammer to coax it into position), then...
