  1. Painters gone wild

    The painters went a little overboard with the electric panel and kitchen exhaust fan.

  3. Bouncy TPO

    Not sure what to make of this. The center of this roof lifts up and is springy under foot. One area feels like a 3' x 8' waterbed. What do you think the issue is? Thanks.
  4. Flir One Pro (for iPhone)

    Resolution is key. What is the rez vs. the old Flir 1. Does it make it worth the extra $150?
  5. What do you call these air wells in the middle of buildings which have no access other than windows? I'm pretty sure I asked this before but cannot remember the answer.
  6. I was doing some research on expansion joints at brick veneer in which the BIA (TECHNICAL NOTES on Brick Construction 18A) recommends a joint located every 20 to 25 feet depending on certain fenestrations. Then near the bottom of the notes at the opening remarks, it reads, "While most examples are for commercial structures, movement joints, although rare, also must be considered for residential structures." Why would residential construction be different?
  7. Offering Inspection Warranty

    So what is the fine print?
  8. Eroding Limestone

    Can anything be done for eroding stone? The front of this building is turning to sand in a lot of places. Can it be cleaned and sealed with something to protect it? Or is replacement the only answer?
  9. Cut Rafters

    Is there a reason why a framing carpenter would do this other than they ran out of long pieces of lumber? The roofs were sagging at these locations.
  10. Vent extension into chimney

    Is there a reference as to how far a vent should stick into a chimney liner? I believe I read somewhere that it should be flush.
  11. "Touching base to see if you do infections in mokena."
  12. Paleontologists date this crawlspace find to the 1950's.
  13. Anyone familiar with this window trim?

    It looks like a vinyl window for new construction with integrated j-channel built in to the frame. Nice feature. Can't say on the brand. I have installed Pella's that are similar.
  14. What is the name for this exterior piece?

    And shouldn't we see a flashing above it and not caulk?
