    I need four 60x32 left shower pans for new home build - anyone know if Foremost brand ($239) holds up to the higher priced Signature brand ($349). Only diff I see in specs are a smidge variance in the ht (2 5/8' v 3 3/4") and L and W per their specs, and some in height of basin. Wondering if...

    Hi, I've got a bit of a weird project I'm working on. I'm trying to create a clear hard cover for a keyboard that has holes where someone can still press all of the keys. It would be just a flat piece of material that Velcros onto the top of wireless key board. I've been working with acrylic...

    I am starting to get some “grout” failures in my shower. I don’t know how it was constructed (remodel) before we bought the house 8 years ago. The shower walls seem to be acrylic (the floor is real tile), it sounds thin and hollow when tapped (not real tile). Looking at what products are on...

    Hello folks: I have previously painted cedar siding on the house and we want to re-paint. Is oil better than acrylic? Will it still need two coats of paint, if it has not worn out? Thanks for your advice.

    I'm making a large, multimedia art installation. I am looking to mount a 4'x8' acrylic panel on a wall so that it is about 8"-10" away from the wall so that I can put some light bulbs behind it (they'll be controlled by an Arduino microcontroller). What's the best way to do this? Anyone have...

    Hi, I've learned a lot looking for an answer on this forum but not as yet an answer to this question. I recently painted a small boat [bottom only so far] with three coats of acrylic latex porch and floor enamel over two coats of bullseye 1-2-3 primer and all that on top of a layer of epoxy to...

    Hello, I just finished painting some new ornate wood trim and awning installed on a window. I used Glidden gripper primer (gray) and Dunn Edwards Evershield paint (dark brown). Both are acrylic products so I wouldn't expect compatibility issues. The window was primed 3 days ago, and painted...

    Can I add MAPEI / Keraply Mortar Latex additive to sanded grout to a glass mosaic piece for outdoor use? Does it matter if I use that product or an acrylic admix? I obviously need strength, durability, and most of all mildew and mold resistance. What is the difference between the two...

    I need help! I am so indecisive... We have a bathroom that we are remodeling. I was so excited to pull out our soaking tub and put in a new corner jacuzzi tub with jets that holds 2 people. (Kind of like a small hot tub in your bathroom!) Currently (we didn't realize it until we tore out...
