    My boyfriend and I are trying to remodel the stairs. We discovered that the stair tread caps (about one inch) purchased do not fit over the existing stair nose (about 1.3 inch). We were hoping someone would have some sort of affordable solution to this dilemma or could tell us what we need to...

    That last folks that did our roof put in a ridge cap. Well, I found out later it probably wasn't necessary or even should not have been done, as we already have passive vents at four places in the roof. In addition to that, there are passive vents at the gables at both ends of the house. One...

    I need to remove an 8" SDR35 PVC Gasketed Cap. It's on a sewer access above ground. The brand is Marathon, if that matters. I'm a rookie, although I did search for an answer here and elsewhere. Any kind soul want to point me in the right direction?

    I just purchased a new house, and in the back I found a small pipe protruding from the wall with a NIBCO cap on it (see attached photos). I have no idea what this is. Perhaps someone can advise me? Could it be a water hose bib? Could it be a natural gas line (for grill)? Septic line?

    I have a leak in my attic that I think is coming from or around the chimney. I have posted some pictures below. The most obvious problem I see is that the caulk/sealant around the chimney flue has pulled away from the cap near the places you see rust. I plan to sand that rust away and reseal...

    I built our deck about 6 years ago - I used 2x4 (not pressure treated) railing caps over top of a fairly standard looking 2x4 top rail with wood ballusters. Now, the 2x4 rail cap is warping (not surprising) so I want to replace it with a 2x6 rail cap. Any advice or surprises that I should be...

    Hi, here is a picture of my situation. take a look now and I'll try to explain it. The proposed balustrade ( in red ) is to be installed over a "flight cap" or whatever that is called. The problem is that it sits directly below the ceiling and their is not a lot of clearance as you get to the...

    So I recently purchased a 1910 rowhouse in baltimore and there are 4 chimenys, neither one has a chimney cap. The issue is that they are all very large and pre-made caps would be over $160 each. Now, they chimneys are only used for venting and there are no working fireplaces in the home. I was...

    I have been renovating an old hotel I bought a few years ago. Originally it was built in 1880 and then in 1903 they added a brick addition. At the begining of this summer I decided to put a new roof on the brick addition and pulled the old layers off (I dont think this has been done since 1903)...

    So I am in my new house and I find a damp area in my basement that looks moldy and decide it has to come out, after wrestling with the framing the damp seemed to get worse. There was a steel filing cabinet built into the framing I decided to move that out as well so it could dry. After I moved...
