I have installed a hardwood laminate floor in my hallway and purchased a reducer strip made of hard bamboo. Unfortunately the 1 1/2 x 17 wire brads I tried to mount the reducer with folded up like wet paper. What kind of nails should I use to fasten the bamboo to the floor?
We're on a really tight budget but our east and west-facing house has big temperature swings. Window replacement seems logical. There are four 4 x 6's, three 4 x 8's, and two 3 x 4' windows. We're pretty handy and will remove and replace the windows ourselves. What window type and budget do you suggest?
When we built our house near Jonesboro, Arkansas, we quickly put up a 4' high welded wire fence just to keep animals out. Now we're exploring better fences, but I'm also wondering how to remove the metal posts that held up the wire. They're stuck in the ground pretty tightly.
I just don't like the looks of our cement patio in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It seems uninviting. I'd really like to cover the patio with a composite decking material. The patio is a couple of broad, terraced stone steps down from the patio door, so I don't think the finished height is a problem. Are there any reasons not to cover the cement patios with composite decks?
We are looking to re-stain the exterior of our house. have about 1900 sq.ft. of cedar siding that needs re-staining. What's the approximate cost these days?
