    From what I have read, I made a rookie mistake and started installing my composite decking from the inside edge out when I should have started the other way. That said, I now have 3" remaining on the outside edge and my boards are 5 1/2" wide. Does anyone have any suggestions on completing the...

    Hi; I've removed old carpeting from some stairs and want to resurface with engineered hardwood. Several YouTube videos show that the tread overhang should be cut back so that the tread is flush with the riser. Why is that necessary since it is extra work? Any insight is much appreciated. Thanks.

    I am looking at replacing my roof this spring. My house is 25 years old and is in need of a new roof. I didn't think much about it when buying my house, a few years ago, but there is no gable end overhangs. I have had a lot of water damage on my corner boards and window sills on the gable ends...
