Installing foam crown moulding, its so EASY and the kitchen was under $100 Completed Pictures Added
I am installing styrofoam crown moulding for the second time. This time in my kitchen. If you love the look of crown moulding but don't have the skill or $$ for wood this is a great alternative.It looks just like high end crown moulding after you paint it. It is so easy because the back is flat for easy cutting and positioning. I took some before,during and after pictures.I buy the crown moulding from www.creativecrown.com ...»P.S. I don't work for them nor did they ask me to endorse them.

Having put up quite a bit of crown molding both composite, pine and hardwood, I'm keen to
I want to have a true macadam drive installed and cannot find a contractor in the area that does this. Tar and chip is not macadam and the only contractor I know of that does the true
process is in Rhode Island. The description of the process is at: (http://www.larrytorti.com/pavingsystem.htm)
True macadam looks like a gravel driveway but is much more durable and should cost about a 1/3 as much as asphalt. If there is someone that knows of a contractor, please let me know and thank you!

I see that you didn't mention macadam in your article and that's not surprising given that it
is more of an east coast application. The New Jersey Turnpike was originally paved as macadam although is being replaced over time. I'm looking for a contractor that knows how to install macadam in the Central NJ area.
Where I live we have a high water table and a significant problem with water absorption in the soil. Sump pumps are the norm and run every 90 seconds or so to keep water out of the
basement - I have two with battery backup to prevent flooding in the event of a power outage.
I am considering installing underground drainage tube to take the downspout runoff and route it to a section of the lawn where it can drain away normally. I intended to use rigid PVC pipe but have heard that professional installers use the flexible pipe. My concern is that the flexible pipe is not smooth on the inside and had a potential for settling and creating low spots. I suspected that I could direct bury the rigid PVC but would have to encase the flexible in gravel. Anyone done this or had it done? Thoughts?

Thanks for all the replies. Flex pipe seems to make sense from a cost perspective as well as
ease of installation. What about the stone? What size is recommended?
My garage doors are quite drafty and there is a 1/4" gap in some places. I have looked at a couple of types of weatherstripping but is there something that is better than what I am seeing at HD and Lowes?

I didn't realize that Van Doren is right around the corner from me. What a nice discovery.
The basement floor was removed around the perimeter and repoured with some sort of concrete that seems to have never fully hardened. My problem is that it does not matter how much I
sweep, the top seems to turn to fine dust and I have a concrete dust cloud in the basement. I don't know if the concrete was mixed or installed correctly but I could not see paint sticking to it. Is there a way to seal this somehow?

After reading further, I see that H&C® Concrete Stain Solid Color Water-Based also comes in
clear. I suspect that this is the product Charles? Thanks again.
