    Hey everyone. So I messed up my plumbing underground for my basement bathroom and my underground comes out too high for my toilet flange. (My slope is perfect I just miscalculated where to start it). It's all cemented and tiled now as you can see in the picture. What would you recommend I do? My...
  3. Flooring
    Hello. I am planning to lay Grip Strip Flooring in my bathroom and then carry it through to my connected Bedroom. However there is a pretty decent downwards slope leading into the bedroom from the bathroom. How can I even it out or make a slope that would be suitable for laying vinyl plank along...

    Hello, We bought a detached house 4 years ago. The previous owners built a two-story extension to the house (without a basement). Unfortunately the foundation height above grade line for the extension is extremely small, maybe something like 4'' on average, with places where it is even lower. I...

I removed the old tile floor and instead of replacing it, I decided to acid etch, stain, and seal the concrete. Now I noticed that the flange is 5/8 of an inch above the new floor level. I am planning on using...

    My Builder's architect submitted incorrect plans to the contractor as a result the 1st floor ceiling height now needs to be raised as per the correct plan of 9 Feet, from its current 8 foot height. The house is framed, 2nd story is up as well as the roof. The builder / architect have realized...

    I bought a Larson storm door 36" wide that says it fits a space 80" to 81" tall. I had a handyman do the installation. It turns out that my actual opening was 81.5". There is now a .5" gap at the bottom of the door. The extender and sweep are lowered as much as possible - just catching the metal...

    I'm struggling with a wet basement and need to verify if my sump pump is kicking on and off at the correct water height, or if changing it will help. I have a crudely dug sump hole with PVC basin, submersible pump and tethered switch. There is gravel in the bottom of my PVC basin upon which...
