    Re: Fusebox

    Fuses and fusestats are all color coded, indicating the size of them. For example, the blue fusestats are 15 amp, the red are 20 amp, and the green are 30 amp. In the bottom of the holder, it will be...

    Re: Skunks under house

    Just the other night, on "Dirty Jobs", Mike Rowe went with a professional exterminator to get rid of skunks and other critters from under a house. They just used wire live traps to catch them. When...

    Re: wooden pegs for nailing into walls

    Shaker pegs are readily available at most all craft shops. Just a bit of caution if using a screw on the backside. Drill a pilot hole so the peg does not crack or split. Most shaker pegs are a very...

    Re: under the floor radiant heat

    Whatever style you use, you will love it. We have hot water in tubes in the concrete in our home, and it is marvelous. No more chilly feet. Our hot water is heated by an electric boiler, with a...

    Re: 100 amp to 150 amp

    The 4 inch tile is like field drain tile, with no holes, that all the contractors in this area use, to prevent rodents from gnawing on the wires. There are so many unnecessary service calls, where...
  7. Re: Repairing hole in drywall from towel bar mounting bracket

    Patch up the holes so the surface is flush. Then mount a nice oak board, routed on all four sides, to the wall. Oak would be nice, with a durable finish on it. Attach a new towel bar to the oak...
  8. Re: How do you know how much work you need?

    I agree, redo the wiring, and bring it up to code. It is surprising how electricians can re wire a house, without destroying very much.

    Since the wiring needs replacement, now would be a good...

    Re: broken replacement window

    Yes, a good glass shop should be able to replace it for you. Some local lumber yards are equipped to do glass repacement. Much success to you.
  10. Re: Window casing for replacement windows in existing metal frame

    Well, I guess I would try shimming everything out flush with the bottom stool, kinda like making jamb extensions. Now, what do we do next ?? Mmmmm, I guess, if it were my window, I would cut some...

    Re: Bathroom floor leveling

    Depending on how fussy you are, 1/2 inch in 9 feet can look funny, if you place something along that wall, within eye sight from the stool. If the stool was opposite this wall, I would notice it...

    Re: electrical switch

    Tract the wires, to see if you can find out where they go. Could be that the other end of that feed wire is hooked up incorrectly, too, resulting in 2 hot wires. Get your tester, and see which wires...

    Re: Tile adhesive

    That old glue is pretty tough stuff, so I would recommend just replacing the entire kick board area. If you happen to break one of those old tile, getting the glue removed, you would have to buy some...

    Re: 100 amp to 150 amp

    What size wires do you have coming from the meter to your breaker panel? Two years ago, I went from 100 amp service to 200 amp service, for the installation of a new heat pump, and the electrician...

    Re: Hot water advice/options/questions.

    Re: Hot water advice/options/questions.

    Yes, it definitely sounds like there was a separate water heater originally. When you stated there was a breaker labeled "Water Heater", that was the clue.

    Those new wall mount, tankless water...

    Re: Old house draft problems

    Contact your local spray foam contractor, about using the spray foam insulation. This stuff is great, seals all cracks, and requires no vapor barrier. Just ask the spray foam contractor what kind of...
  19. Re: water dripping from register in the ceiling

    I would suggest you wrap the exposed ductwork with good insulation, so you do not have that warm air hitting the cold duct work forming condensation. Insulation is a pretty cheap fix.

    Good Luck.
  20. Re: Adding Vents to existing Central AC system

    I agree, put in some more air registers, either in the floor, or at the bottom of the wall. Just like the previous poster stated, be sure you put in cold air returns at the same time, so you have...

    Re: Moisture

    Looks like no ventilation in your attic. If possible, add some more roof vents, and be sure there are holes beteen the old roof, and the new roof, so the air can escape. Two years ago, I remodeled an...

    Re: Flickering lights in house.

    Yep, it sure sounds like a loose neutral in the circuit that is flickering.. I had several uncles who were electricians, and they would tell you the same thing.

    Good luck.
  24. Re: Glass on door has a haze or film after cleaning. How do I remove it?

    Try using vinegar to remove the haze. You can try using it full strength, or mix it with water, just like if you were washing windows. Vinegar is acidic, so it will desolve the haze. Vinegar is such...
