Questions Answered on This Week’s Show
Ed in IL
I have a man getting ready to install a tile backsplash. It’s a subway tile, but the spacing will leave a ¼” gap at the top. Do you think he should space out the tiles so there is no grout line at the top?
Mary in NH
I have a small master bath that I believe the builder put a whirlpool tub in before the house was finished. Is there a way to get it out without tearing walls down?
Wes in AR
I’ve got a small concrete block house and lately there has been an excessive amount of moisture inside. What is the problem?

My air conditioner is in the attic space over my hall, I don’t see a place to put bleach or vinegar. I see PVC pipes above my filter, but none that I could pour anything into.
I have an older deck. What can I put on it to make it look good again?

I have a house with vinyl siding. I also have these huge bugs that hang around the front door and get all over the siding. They look like mosquitoes, but they aren’t. What can I spray around the area that won’t stain the siding?

I have a light in the over hang of my front steps that has a clear plastic insert. When the light is put on it is very bright and u can see the bulb. Is there a way to paint this clear plastic with a light paint and still get light to see the steps but not the bulb in the fixture?
