Today’s Homeowner Radio
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. One homeowner is concerned her furniture could turn on her guest. Listen to find out what she needs to do to make sure her chair legs don’t fall out from under her houseguests. Plus, a metal roof is a great investment for a home, and a listener from Minnesota knows this first hand. He needs to install a vent and needs advice on how to do so without causing any unnecessary holes. Danny and Joe explain the best ways to reroute the vent to prevent damage to his roof.

Rerouting Vent Project
Mike from Minnesota “I want to install a vent in the bathroom and doesn’t want to punch a hole in the metal roof. Any alternative way to route the vent?”
Jessica from Michigan “I have a bathroom that was an attempted remodel. The only thing that is updated is the vanity. There are holes in the walls which leak outside air into my home, and it really causes a problem for me because my neighbor who is approximately 15 feet away from my house uses his fireplace in the winter and smoke comes into my home, and I have asthma. Is there a way to fix this on a fixed budget?”

Ken from Michigan “I have a home in Florida and I’m constantly having to repaint. Is there something I can do before putting on another coat to keep it from coming off?”
