    I'm replacing a light switch with a dimmer. The ground wires in the box run through the box leaving no end exposed to attach ground from dimmer. Do I need to remove the box to get at the ground or are the wires grounded already?

    Hi, I have an Instant Pot that came with a very short power cable (maybe 2 feet at best). The original cable specs are SJT, 105 C deg, 3 x 18 AWG, 300V VW-1. I would prefer a slightly longer power cable for better placement while in use. I have a spare PC cable (from a tower-style PC). It's...

    Go easy on me as I'm a new homeowner and equally new to home repair! our front yard has an underscalloped vinyl fence. One of the pickets' peaks is cracked off (no idea how), and borders our neighbor's driveway. I don't like this eye sore for our neighbors and ourselves and would really like...
  10. Roofing/Siding
    That last folks that did our roof put in a ridge cap. Well, I found out later it probably wasn't necessary or even should not have been done, as we already have passive vents at four places in the roof. In addition to that, there are passive vents at the gables at both ends of the house. One...

    If you have used the WingTite drain, how did it work for you? The main selling point of this drain is that it installs from the top. I was wondering how well these drains hold up over the years. Thank you

    Hi everyone, I have a 3 yrs old 52000 BTU efficiency furnace. It was working perfectly for the first 3 winters, then started behaving weirdly just about a month and a half ago.

The three 1" steel support pipes embedded in the stone above the firebox have rusted out and need to be replaced. Is there any way to do that without removing the stone to reach the ends? If I cut the rods in...

    I want to increase existing footer thickness on 20" round footing that is about 3" to 4" thick now (best guess from outer edge). Problem is it is 16 years old, not flat , not smooth & is dirty. It also has a 2x6 imbedded in it that I can't remove as it is not rotten (nor was the post). This was...

    Hi I'm renovating a 100 year-old rowhome. On the first floor I'll be removing linoleum and a layer of thin, damaged plywood to reveal the original floors.

    This valve leaks. I can't quite figure out how much, but I'm pretty certain it's my culprit. There have been a couple of times I've gone downstairs and water is dripping quite rapidly out of several of the subfloor cuts. Looking up through the holes, there is water apparently coming from the...
