    Hello. There is a hole/crack in the exterior wall of my house. As shown in the picture, it is at the corner where bricks and a window intersect. The hole seems pretty deep.

    A handyperson took too long to dig a 36" deep hole for a concrete pier. Now it is too cold to pour concrete. The hole is within inches of a concrete sidewalk. Since this is in the central Midwest, do I need to fill in the hole until next Spring? If so, can I fill it in with sand to make...

    New homeowner here. Very excited, but green. Was wondering about repairing a small hole in the vinyl siding. The previous owners ran their satellite dish wire from outside through the wall into our living room in, what appears to be, a very makeshift job. I am comfortable with repairing the...

    Ready to drywall and have 2 holes in the wall where fish tanks will be going. I'm doing double layered 5/8" drywall and was just going to put the drywall up normally then cut it out once it's up. Then I read that you should not have any seams or butt joints where i'll be cutting. Could...
