BedBugs, Cockroaches - Is there a greater fear for a homeowner or perhaps a multifamily owner when mentioning these insect names.
I personally have experience in this area and the nightmare lasted about 8 months and about $12,000.00 dollars later I was rid of the little buggers. For good!
In this case I was fixing a new roof that was leaking. See - How to find a roof leak in a new roof or old roof.
On this particular roof I had discovered that rain was running down the roofing nails.
So I measured the approximate distance to where the leak was occurring and started lifting up all the shingles near the ceiling leak.
And I found some nails that had been nailed down too much destroying the shingle which allowed the water to drip down.
If you are going to insulate and attic with fiberglass insulation you need to decide if you will apply it to the roof rafters or the floor joists and measure the height and width.
Measure the rafters
I was replacing a window sill for a home owner the other day and she said she wished she had never replaced the old wooden windows with new replacement windows because the new ones are colder.
I thought that was a little strange and I have come to find out that is true with the windows in many homes and businesses purchased from some very well know manufacturers.
I had the opportunity to refinish a double wooden mahogany vanity top that showed signs of wear in the finish. The urethane was lifting and some mold had started to find its way into the wood. (See the image below with the light brown stains).
