  1. Windows and Doors
    Any advice before I get started? My thought is that this should be pretty straight forward. But this isn't something I've done before. If you think there may be something I haven't considered, lay it on me.
  2. Painting
    I'd appreciate some tips and advice on what I'm doing wrong. The situation is painting new baseboards and casing with a Graco airless handheld sprayer using Cabinet Coat. The baseboards went great. The problem is that I'm getting cracks in the casing and my assumption is user error of some...

    I need help removing water from an air compressor line so I can spray paint without issues. I am a total newbie. I have sprayed polyurethane before with really great results (it was about 13 years ago when I built a baby crib for my daughter and the sprayed on polyurethane top coat turned out...

    I have DIY painted many homes over the years but this will be my first effort at wood walls and non water-based paint...so yeah my experience is pretty basic. We have gorgeous but dark pine paneling in an old small beach house in FL and I'd like them white. I plan to use BIN primer. I had...

    Hi... advice needed. I want to paint the exposed beams / subfloor on our basement ceiling. The wooden beams are very dirty, and there is the usual mess of black iron heating pipes, water supply and sewer pipes, romex and ductwork. This is obviously a job for a paint sprayer, but my questions...

This primer was sprayed on some wood trim with an airless sprayer a while ago by someone I hired. - Prior to priming, this wood trim was stained a dark brown by the previous owner. - I think (but cannot say for sure) it was either lightly sanded or liquid de-glossed...

  9. Painting
    I am going to paint our old kitchen cabinets, and I'm planning on using BIN shellac primer. I want to use the spray can version for the fronts and backs of all the doors because it seems faster and also cleaner (no brushes to cleanup). However, every tutorial I've read says to use spray primer...
  10. Pest Control
    My husband and I recently moved into an apartment only to find that it is infested with fleas. We contacted management and they had a pest company spray our apartment. We waited a few days but there didn't seem to be any reduction in the amount of fleas. So (and, in retrospect, we should not...

  12. HVAC
    I am building a small 6' x 8' x 7' tall paint spray booth. It will have one open wall for air intake, and I need to add an exhaust fan on the other end.
