Questions Answered in Hour 1
Bill in AL: When to Acid Stain Patio
I have a new concrete slab. I now need to replace several posts supporting a deck, install a railing, and replace some stairs. Should I acid stain prior to doing this work so that I do not have to worry about protecting much material, or should I stain after all the new materials are installed and painted to better protect the acid stain?
Mike in AL: Installing Fiber Cement Over Existing Siding
I am thinking about putting Hardieboard over old Georgia Pacific siding. Is this a good or bad idea?
Joe in CA: Removing Lava Rock Fireplace Facing
My wife and I want to remove the lava rock facing on our fire place. We’re holding off because we really don’t know what we’ll find under the rock nor what to use to finish it off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Questions Answered in Hour 2
Ivy in LA: Water Damaged Flooring
I live in a raised home in Louisiana, and our flooring was water damaged from a bathtub that we didn’t realize was leaking. Can we put the new flooring right over the old, or do we need to rip it out?
Debra in AL: Gap Where Toilet Meets Floor
Our toilet doesn’t sit flat on the floor and it’s too high to caulk. I have porcelain tile on bath floor. The tile behind the toilet is higher than the other tile. The toilet sit on part of the tile in back, making the toilet uneven. Someone placed shims in front, but the gap around the toilet is too high. Caulk will not stay there but for a short time. How do I fix?
