    My exterior door is all wood. It seems it is made up of a few pieces where there is a panel near the bottom. I feel cold air leaking through where it seems the main part of the door and the panel connect. Any advice to tighten this gap or seal it without using rope caulk that is grey while my...

    We have been having issues with water entering our home since it was first built in 2013. We have replaced the wood exterior trim this past year, having been told this would "fix" the issue (also made sense as there was a gap in the caulking), however water is still enter into the house. I was...

Over the years of obviously being stepped on it has failed and leaks. its a pretty bad design but regardless I need to replace it. Any advice or know...

    I've got an ancient Delta 3 handle tub/shower faucet that's having problems with the diverter valve - water coming out of both tub and shower. I took it apart and discovered that the rubber gasket on the diverter valve was all chewed up. So I replaced the diverter (Delta replacement part 10799)...

    Air conditioner unit ices up. Ice builds up in the unit itself. By that, I mean when you look beyond the fan blade you see pipes covered in ice. Pipe(s) from wall to ac covered in ice. In the house, there is ice build up on a pipe that goes into the evap coil box. I would assume the evap coils...

    Hi, I have central A/C and the furnace is in my basement. All of the duct work travels in the basement ceiling. A section of the duct work is dripping water at the joint. I live in a townhome and as the duct work travels, it turns 90 degrees up along the wall separating me and my neighbor. It's...

    We have a granite counter without a hole to receive the air gap for our dishwasher. I set it up underneath the counter top when we bought the house 4 years ago, propped it upright, and it has worked fine since then. Until a few days ago, when it started discharging a lot of water. I...

    Hello, In my basement, I noticed when I turned on my laundry, there was a thin film of water that leaked under the wall where the pipes connecting to the laundry are. It was a small thin puddle of about 8'' by 4'' approx. Hence, I opened the wall up to search for some leaks. Turned laundry...

    I have a tenant with a leaky shower head, it leaks hot water. She has two knobs one for hot and one for cold. I replaced the O ring (rubber washer) in the hot but not the cold. Once I turned the water back on and turned the hot water knob on the shower back on, it did the exact same thing. I...

    Hi everyone, Hoping for a bit of guidance. My wife and I built our home 2.5 years ago and have had so many problems I won't even get into it here. I've been keeping up with as many of the problems as I can, but don't know where to begin with this. We noticed a bit of discoloring on the inside...

    I can hear water running in the drainpipe from 2nd floor bathroom (the drainpipe runs down the wall of a 1st floor utility closet). It sounds like just a trickle but it runs all the time. I'm assuming it's toilet water since it runs even when sink and tub are not in use. I'd appreciate any...

    Hello everyone, We just had a heavy rainstorm and my basement collected a lot of water. I've been in this house for approximately one year and this was the first time that I noticed water in the basement. During the storm I observed water leaking from underneath the soffit above the basement...

    My master shower is leaking into the closet. I cut a hole in the closet behind the shower knob, turned on the shower and saw water dripping from above. So, I cut a hole a few feet above that, behind the faucet, only to find that the faucet is attached to a horizontal stud, thus blocking my...

    I've developed a leak along the rafters on either side of the chimney. In heavy rains (as in 1-2 days), one side (the "windy" side) leaks more than a little bit (about 1-3 cups). The other side leaks a little (just some water runs and a few drops coming off the rafter). I would try to just...

    I paid a guy to replace a rotten rafter over my back deck. It had rotted due to gutters not being cleaned, so the gutter pulled away from the house. He was supposed to take 3 roofs off, and put 3 roofs back on. I don't think he did that, because the shingles still look bowed where the bad...

    I have a home in N. Texas that was built in the 1950's. It sits on a slab foundation. The carpet in a hallway (interior, not close to an exterior wall) is constantly damp. The hallway is adjacent to 2 bathrooms, but is damp only near one of them. I have checked the water meter for a leak, but...

    My powerwasher is losing a lot of water near the nozzle just above the piece that you turn to ajust the pressure. Do powerwashers have washers or seals that I can change?

    Hello, My hot water heater this morning would not heat up a shower for me. So i went down to the garage to have a look and there was a small puddle developing under/around the heater. I was able to pinpoint the leaking to the drain valve on front at the base of the heater. But would this...
