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?
As time went by the conduit was brought to the surface by tree roots and now I must redo the project. Since parts of the property are on bedrock burying to the code depth is impossible
and we do not want overhead wires to the garage. Can conduit be placed in the ground in a way to avoid normal regulations concerning depth. I original used direct bury wires and placed them in the conduit for additional protection. Since I did this myself and with an electrically adept friend I never had it inspected. Trying to comply without degrading the look of the property. Dan
I would like to paint the inside of the garage to upgrade the look. We live in Denver, CO so it does get below 0 at times in the winter and can get as high as 100 in the summer. How do I prep & paint this garage? Many thanks!
A little while later, there was water on the floor in the laundry which is on the joining wall. Even later I noticed that the laminate floor in the kitchen which is next to the door of
the garage were expanding a little. The same thing happened last year when I parked my snow covered car in the garage. How do I repair those small cracks so this will not happen again? Can I paint something to waterproof the floor or is there a better way?
