    Looking for some ideas. Ordered my nice new cordless blinds for my entry door window thinking it was gonna be a simple drill & mount job. I quickly discovered that it was going to be much more complicated… Have a fiberglass door with a raised window frame which I haven’t been able to find any...

    Hello, everyone. I'm Danny and just bought my new home. I was wondering can someone explain me how to install panel (if you have a video this will be amazing), like the one in the photo to the celling. I will be so grateful.
  3. Windows and Doors
    Hi all, New member but longtime reader. Hoping to get some help - I'm planning on installing full frame replacement windows (current windows are 50+ years old and wood trim is badly rotted). I was taking a look at the windows today and noticed that there is a "ledge" where the nail fin...

    Hi everyone I am looking for DIY profiles for a short chat about... well, about you!:smile: I am currently researching DIY people, who install/change their own thermostats (or similar), and as exciting as the topic is, it is quite hard to find good information about it. I would love to know...

    I am getting a new dishwasher and wondered if it's best to replace the existing copper water supply line with the installation, or should I not bother and keep the old line? The old line doesn't leak but is about 17 years old. Either way, I definitely want to stick with a copper line as...

    Anyone use Kerdi a few times willing to be my online resource to the curb less shower install?
  7. Windows and Doors
    I am replacing the handleset on my front door. The thumbpress on the old one no longer fully retracts the latch (similar to the problem shown on ). I am installing a Weiser "Welcome Home" Heritage handleset. However, I have this extra part that came out of the box and I don't know where it...

    Hi Everyone, I have been thinking ahead about replacing my Navien CR-A 240, which has been running relatively well for the past 8 years. I assume that at a certain point, the repair bills will make this a reality. My unit has the two vents at the top, water into/out of the bottom and gas on the...
  9. Windows and Doors
    I live in an old (111) Victorian and want to put French doors in an existing opening. The jamb, casing and all trim are in place, and you can see where there used to be hinges and hard ware, that someone has filled in and painted over. The opening measures 63 3/4" by 81 1/2" though I took that...
  10. How To Guides
    Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a toilet but have never installed a toilet myself. I'm wondering how hard is it to install? Don't know a single thing about toilets? OR should I just get a plumber to install it. Thanks..

    I installed a new ceiling fan yesterday. The fan was working fine all night. We couldn't test the light because the fan came with a broken lightbulb. We got a new lightbulb today, put it in, flipped the switch, and a spark came from the part of the fan closest to the ceiling. Now the wall switch...
  12. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    We realize that the gentleman who installed our tub did not put in a stringer. Unfortunately, we did not realize this until we already starting putting up most of the concrete board around the tub. I have access to both sides. I can get it from a closet on one side, and I have to rip out the...
  13. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Do you install fireplace door before laying stone veneer or after the fact? Suppose you do it "BEFORE", then the installation is clear, you just screw that metal frame to the bricks from inside. Here is my confusion though - doors will be almost (~1/4") flush with the bricks with metal...

    So I'm getting a new Bosch 500 series dishwasher, model SHP65T55UC. It is supposed to come today. I already removed the old one. I was reading the installation manual, and it says that the holes in the cabinet for the water supply line, drain line, and power cord need to be within a 4 in. x 2.5...
  15. Roofing/Siding
    Our contractor told us that they would be replacing all the decking on our roof because we had 3/8" plywood. They would be using 7/16" because the new shingles were heavier and that's more standard these days. On our front porch I notice a ripple/raised area about 6' long and 1' wide. The...

    I have a new GE Profile 30" PGP953 gas cooktop. I have run a new gas line from my 3/4 black iron into a 3/4 valve and decreased into 1/2 csst to the cooktop area. I have the pressure regulator for the cooktop. My 1/2 csst male goes into the regulator perfectly, but the regulator decreases to...

    So believe it or not I do actually try to search for answers before making a post but there really isn't much out there on this subject, so I could use some help. We are replacing a 30" coil cooktop with downdraft vent, so the venting is already in place. The vent connection is round (I read...
