  1. Insulation
    I hate the concept of exposed fibreglass insulation anyway, but this might be a serious problem because I see them playing with tufts of the yellow stuff now. I've gotten rid of any stuff on the floor, and it looks like they're either after mice or just playing with the stuff. Beats me what...

    My Maytag Centennial washer was making a hideous noise sometimes while agitating, especially during the rinse cycle. It also had a weird plastic sawdust smell. I troubleshot the problem and the pulley wheel was rubbing on the cover. In addition, evidently a cork got stuck in there and it was...
  3. Insulation
    I live in Southern California. My attached garage is not insulated and gets VERY hot in the summer and somewhat cold in the winter. I would like to mitigate this by insulating the exposed peaked roof and exposed walls with fiberglass batts. My question is: Can I leave the fiberglass in the...

    Hi everyone. I'm a first time poster that just found this website when I was searching for information. My wife and I are planning on purchasing a Steel Pergola with canopy from home depot that we want to put in the backyard. Our yard is not too big and the plan is not to stay in this house for...

    My 5-year old high-efficiency ICP furnace won't stay lit with the burner panel on. With the panel on, I look through the little window, and the last burner (where the flame sensor is) flickers and then goes out after 30-60 seconds. The fan keeps going and it cycles through that way a few times...
  9. Building & Construction
    I am planning a covered porch project and my local building dept is not very informative. I am planning on completing this project with an experienced contractor friend. I myself have intermediate construction and slightly less carpentry experience, but much more skilled than the normal DIY'er...

    Hello, I'm trying to replace a fuse but there is a plastic cover on top and around the fuse preventing me from removing it. There must be a way to pop it off, but it evades me. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Thanks. Here's what it looks like:

    Heading into my first winter in the new house and have a question about my central AC unit (Trane XE1000). I can't seem to find a straight answer about what I need to do to prepare the unit for the winter. The previous owner left a tarp style AC cover in the shed, but I have read in my research...
  13. Carpentry
    I have just built a 24x14 ft pergola and covered it with suntuff poly covering. The trouble i'm haveing is there is not enough of an angle for the water to run off of it.
