Introduction from jg


Hi I am the female half of a long marriage with a bad handyman. Funny thing is I am deaf but nobody listens to me. I love to paint and wall paper. We are always renovating and then moving on. Did a roof over a mobile and the men didn't vent out the pipes and now we get too much ice. ,,,( I told them so) , Hey just because I am a woman doesn't mean I don't know about construction!

Judy: I consider myself as a Handyman Supreme. But I'd never tackle Wallpapering (I prefer "hardware"). So you have one up on me, male or female notwithstanding.

Dear Sid , that was great reply about the wall paper and thank you for the welcome. The roofer has not come over yet about venting the roof yet and someone suggested low profile vents.
Do you think they would be adequate?
Judy

JUDY: Yes, the low-profile vents look like a good move. The question is how many? I'd guess for a typical house under 2500 sq. ft., 6-8 of them at least. They do not detract from and even seem to enhance the appearance of the roof. I've over the years put in soffit louvres along with a blower on a sidewall in the crawlspace. A defunct A/C unit provided the fan, installed in a Rube Goldberg setup. It's much larger than those fans intended for this purpose, but this unlike Rube's gadgets, works very well.
Enjoy the looming Autumn and keep your wrenches dry, Sid
