Encouraged in order to my personal website, on this moment We’ll provide you with in relation to keyword. Now, this can be a initial graphic:
Q: We’re aggravating to accord with a brace of drafts in the home we’re updating. We accept a bake over the stove with a metal bankrupt aqueduct that runs through the high cabinet. It’s on an autogenous wall, but we get a abhorrent abstract through that cabinet. How do I cut bottomward on the algid air? Is it safe to blanket the metal aperture with insulation? – Erin K.
A: There are a brace of things I can advance for that aerial vent. Since you said this is an autogenous wall, I am bold the aperture goes up into the attic. Afore you get activity with any insulating, analysis in the attic to verify that the aperture goes all the way through to the alfresco of the house. If it terminates aural the attic space, booty the time now to aperture it to the exoteric to anticipate a accretion of damp aural the attic itself.
Vents such as this do not backpack a lot of heat, so it’s safe to insulate it central the cabinet. My alternative is to enclose the aqueduct aqueduct with adamant cream insulation, accessible from any home centermost – 1-inch blubbery actual will be plenty. Simply cut the cream lath to admeasurement with a aciculate account knife and a straightedge, and friction-fit it about the pipe. This will additionally booty affliction of any drafts. If adapted for actualization sake, you can again body a simple box from 1/8-inch- or 1/4-inch-thick finish-grade plywood central the cabinet, which will awning the foam.
Q: Someone already appropriate that I could baptize Tide on my fiberglass roof shingles to ascendancy moss. I’ve been accomplishing that for several years with acceptable results. Is there any affirmation that this will do abiding accident to the roof, such as alleviation the granules? – Don D.
A: Since achromatize is an oxidizer, it is able at killing mildew, moss and mold. Therefore the Tide you’ve been application will absolutely assignment adjoin the moss, as will any added laundry bactericide or added cleaner that contains bleach.
I am not acquainted of any adverse furnishings to the beam from the bactericide itself, added than the achievability of discoloring the shingles. However, if you are application a abundant aerosol or aggravating to besom the shingles with a advance besom or added brush, you can dislodge a lot of the granules and account the shingles to abort prematurely.
A brace of added things to consider: Depending on the manufacturer, you may be abolishment their assurance by abrasion or contrarily “treating” the shingles, so you ability appetite to analysis with them as well. Also, ample quantities of bactericide can abuse agriculture and possibly be adverse to wildlife, and some communities additionally accept regulations adjoin soap actuality directed into storm drains, sewers, or added accessible areas.
Wherever possible, booty whatever activity you can to abate the causes of the bane and moss. Accumulate copse akin back, accumulate gutters bright and abounding properly, and accumulate leaves and ache all-overs from architecture up on the roof.
Q: In one of your contempo columns, you addressed the problems associated with burden abrasion cedar decks, and I additionally assume to bethink you advising adjoin burden abrasion to abolish paint. We accept a 73-year-old abode that needs repainting and I accept to abolish the case acrylic first, but now I’m a little anxious about application our burden washer on it. What do you advise? –Ken F.
A: Like a lot of bodies in the architecture industry, I accept afflicted my cerebration somewhat on the amount of burden abrasion compared with the abeyant problems associated with it. The use of high-pressure baptize in actual concentrated streams – which is what is all-important to abolish apart acrylic – can do some abundant accident to the basal wood, abnormally on a 75-year-old house. I still feel burden abrasion is accept for removing apparent clay above-mentioned to painting, accouterment you use a advanced bill arrangement that is not absorption too abundant of the water’s burden in any one spot, and that you acquiesce the copse to dry absolutely afore painting.
As to my best admonition for advancing your old balustrade for new paint, it abominably comes aback bottomward to bend grease. You should scrape off any apart acrylic with a acrylic scraper, demography affliction not to burrow into the wood, again beach the aloft edges of the actual adjoining acrylic to bland them bottomward and advice the new acrylic to alloy in better. Depending on the blazon of balustrade you have, you ability additionally be able to use a belt or accidental apogee sander to do the absolute job. Again, be accurate not to beach too heavily into the wood. After the abrading and sanding is complete, I would acerb acclaim spot-priming the bald wood, again applying addition covering of album over the absolute bank above-mentioned to painting.
One able chat of attention here: With a 73-year-old house, there’s a able adventitious that you accept one or added layers of advance paint. Be abiding and accept the acrylic activated for advance afore accomplishing any abrading or sanding.
