Myrtle in WI
We have a small bathroom where the hydronic baseboard is very close to toilet. It has been replaced three times due to rust. Is there any solutions for this- different material or coating we should apply before we put in a new one. Love your show and am always disappointed when I have to miss it.

David in KY
Is there anything I can do to dress-up 6×6 posts that support the deck and are 16′ below deck on a lower concrete patio? The back of my house faces a lake and I need to improve appearance of the 8 posts.

Ashlee in MO
The concrete slab of sidewalk leading to my front porch is sinking on one side causing a tripping hazard. This is against the house and I’m not sure how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Love your show!

Christine in GA
Can you use a water hose to wash the outside of a window A/C unit? To clean the small vents, I’ve used a broom, but it doesn’t clean them that well.

Manny in MI
I want to replace the carpet on my stairs with hardwood but the carpet is even with the landing’s edge. How do account for the thickness of the wood flooring and the landing edge?

Jim in ONT
I am looking at replacing my windows. It gets very cold here in winter, minus 20 Celsius is not unusual. What should I consider the most important item to start with? Triple pane or double?

Leslie in MO
I would like to enhance the curb appeal of my Tudor style home with rooftop finials but am having difficulty finding product choices and a knowledgeable installer. Also, is this a complicated task?

Harold in FL
I’m replacing some damaged flooring and joists and have found the joists in most of the house are 16” O.C., but under the closet, they are only 8” apart. Why is that?

Michael in SC
I recently moved from New York to Myrtle Beach. I was one of those crazy grass homeowners that was a little over the top to make sure it always looked good. I now have centipede grass and can’t stand it. Can I put a different kind of seed on centipede?

Linda in AL
I am re-doing my bathroom myself. I have a VERY small bathroom and I want to get rid of the old sink basin/vanity and replace it with a pedestal sink. I have already purchased the pedestal sink, and it appears that I will have to change some PVC plumbing pipes to make that work. I’m at a loss as to how to approach this… Can you help?

Cynthia in MS
What is the longest lasting, best cedar stain to use? We have a 3500 square foot elevated cedar home and we are getting up in age so want to avoid restraining every 2 years. Also what is the best cleaner to prepare the house for staining?

Dulce in MA
I want to paint or stain my wood deck gray. What should I do first and is there such a thing as a gray stain?
