If the support is as you illustrated, the weight is being held by screws through the support and vertically into the ceiling joist. The load is being held up by screws pointed upward. The strain is downward. All that is holding up the weight is the wood around the threads of two (or maybe four) screws. In general, wood screws do best when the load is shear ...

A box, is a box, is a box. As long as the box is large enough, there's no problem.

That qualifies as a junction box. Provide you did everything else correct, (affixed the box to something a rafter, stud, etc., connected the box itself to the ground wire inside, covered any previously knocked-out knock-outs, etc.) then you're fine.

Many multi speed ceiling fan motors will have a ground wire inside of the housing that simply attaches to a sheet metal screw on an internal part of the housing. Because this is fairly common, when adding remote circuits or dimmable lighting that also has a ground lead, most often the instructions will say to connect the ground lead to the housing also. I ...

NO! You cannot, for any reason, connect a grounding conductor to a neutral (grounded) conductor anywhere other than in the service equipment. If you do so, the metal box and any metal connected to the box (including the fan housing) will become a current carrying conductor. This is very bad, and can result in personal injury and/or death. I doubt the ...

It doesn't make sense to do the inside before the roof has been replaced. The drywall will most likely end up getting damaged when the roof is being demoed and new sheathing is installed. The contractors may inadvertently step on the backside of the drywall and cave it in. There is also a big chance of some water damage. Keeping the original lathe for the ...

It really depends on a lot of factors...namely your climate and how much space you have in the ceiling rafters. Ideally, you'd insulate with spray foam. That will give you the best r-value and act as a vapor barrier. You should be able to do it separate from the new roof but it may be a lot easier to just do it all at once. (It's a lot easier to toss lathe ...

When it comes to what comes first both ways are acceptable but would be better if you do it all at once. Now when we speak about new roof cover material and procedures depend on type of covering material and there are so many options. But to put it in one word just apply standard procedures (if you use tiles go with the lathe etc.).Now once you cover the ...

Yes, this is mould. its from the high humidity in the shower area. If you have a window, I would leave it open after showers, or better yet, install an extractor fan. You can remove the mould by getting some 20% Hydrogen Peroxide and diluting it into a spray bottle... just spray on mould and it should go away. I would add about 10% hydrogen peroxide to ...

I doubt that scraping paint of the celling would upset anyone, unless someone has hearing devices on your celling :) I suggest that you scrap it off, clean the surface with bleach or something like that and then repaint it. But the real question is what is causing this mold? My first guess is that you are not ventilating, or not ventilating bathroom enough ...
