re: slab table: finish and epoxy questions - RaginCajunz
I have done a few live edge desks. One out of sycamore and one out of red gum. I bought cheap lapis stones off of Amazon and built a crusher using threaded iron pipe and 2 caps that fit in each other. I mixed that sifted dust with epoxy and filled some of the small checks in the wood. I then went ...

re: LP Siding vs Hardi - RaginCajunz
My house was built in 1999 and has hardie plank siding on the rear portions. It has held up perfectly save a few chips along the bottoms. I built an office and a shed and wrapped the entire building in Hardie siding, hardie soffits and fascias because it will never rot. We live in the jungle so...

re: Pool heaters part II - RaginCajunz
I have a 400K BTU Pentair gas heater on my new build contract. Its $3700 and includes 50 feet of gas line/risers etc. I think the gas line is about $1000 of that charge. Not sure how that would compare to a stand alone heater job, but hope that helps....

[quote]So what made you choose commercial over residential? We’re you able to actually check them out in person somewhere? Residential not sturdy enough? Iv been pricing it as well. It’s not cheap.[/quote] In my case, I only needed 12' or so and one gate. It wasn't much more to go with the heavie...

re: HVAC questions - RaginCajunz
If it doesn't break the bank, there isn't any harm in the 16 seer for sure. I do think the payoff isn't as exciting as is often stated. My opinion is I'm probably better served taking $500 of the $1200 and adding an extra layer of insulation in the attic. [img]https://i.ibb.co/HPctgD8/Screen-Sh...

re: Tile behind toilet - RaginCajunz
[quote] You can tile over the drywall but it won't be as sturdy as it would be if tiling over cement board. The true correct way to do this would be to remove that section of drywall, replace it with cement board, then tile over the cement board. This would prevent the wall behind the tiles from mo...

re: HVAC questions - RaginCajunz
I believe Ameristar heat pumps are made in China. I doubt the upgrade to 16 seer is worth the money. I just put in a 14 seer which was an upgrade from my 20 year old Trane. The Seer energy calculators I used showed a nice improvement from 10 to 14, but 14 to 16 seemed negligible. ...

re: Tile behind toilet - RaginCajunz
[quote]Yeah you can tile over it. You'll have to remove baseboards from adjoining walls and trim also. [/quote] Sweet. Luckily it has the tub immediately to the left, and the vanity immediately on the right, so the only trim is a straight section of baseboard that terminates at the tub and vanit...

Tile behind toilet - RaginCajunz
I'd like to add tile behind my toilet in my hall bathroom. At the moment, it is backed with painted drywall. (I've never dug into it, but I assume it is standard drywall?) I'd like to remove the straight section of baseboard and install a simple field tile behind it. I just want something more ...

[quote]That is not exactly true. A lot of it depends on how decent your employer is. I own a medical company. I pay my billing company, it’s two sisters that are my friends, 15% and the average rate in the industry is 8%. I pay my sales reps 30% and the average rate in what we do is 15%. ...

[quote]Nope. They are readily replaceable. If fewer people could do it, the salaries would go up. [/quote] I'm speaking from a personal stand. I value teachers on a personal level, so I think they are undervalued by society in many cases. That said, and as I said in my response. You can't escape t...
