    Re: Protecting Cedar Furniture

    Peter,
    I think if I had a real up north, in the woods, type house I would let the cedar weather as well, but in the suburbs I just don't think I would like the look. I also think it will extend the...

    Re: Removing deck posts

    Well.. I bought a farm jack. I did bolt 2x4's to the top to keep the jack from tilting forward and that worked well.

    Thanks for the replies. I will dig around the posts this weekend to determine if there is concrete. I may buy a farm jack anyways because I know it would be useful for some other projects, and for...

    Thanks for the reply. I will check into renting a jack like the one pictured. I have a neighbor with a bobcat, but he stores it away from his house. Perhaps I can convince him to bring it over if I...

    Re: Sidewalk Leveling via mudjacking?

    I have had some sidewalks mudjacked in the past. I would say if you only need to bring up the current sidewalk 1-2 inches mudjacking is a good alternative. My experience, however, was that after 4-5...
