    Hello I am repainting a bathroom and the outside drywall corner is rusted and bleeding thru the paint. I sanded it all off and put a 2 coats of kilz on and waited 4 days and the rust is coming back again. What can I apply to stop the rust from bleeding thru. I am using water base paint in the bathroom and do not want to paint over until I know the rust will not bleed thru. Thank you in advance for the help. Some one told me to use white out over the rust. Have you ever heard of using this.

    Hello..we have an Illinois ranch house with a covered front porch with a brick floor that is up one step from ground level..the roof overhang is supported by three 6″ X 6″ rough sawn cedar posts that are painted white and are resting on the brick flooring…the middle post has rotted up about 6″ from bottom..I have driven wooden wedges in from the sides to support the post and it doesnt seem to be anchored at the top..just the weight of overhang is holding it / them in place ?? Also, the corner of the brick support wall has a medium size vertical crack in it where it appears to have shifted somewhat..Several of the flooring bricks, on the same corner have lost mortar underneath them as well..thanks for any help / solutions…

    I need to reconnect the sink stopper to the open-close lever. Can you give general info. re: connection? Thanks.

    I live in Michigan where sinkholes are not common. This past Friday a large (2×3) section in my driveway fell in. There appears to be a void almost two feet deep that stretches several feet in different directions. The area beneath the void was soft enough so, that a four foot metal pole could easily probe the ground (which was moist) at the bottom of the void with ease for the full length of the pole (ran out of pole after that). A plumber took a look and was “stumped,” he could not locate any pipes or water source in the area of the void. I have someone willing to repave the area but I am worried that there is an underlying issue which is not resolved. Should I contact someone and if so who?

    If you re grout your bathroom and mix sealer in with the grout do you still need to put grout sealer on it
