This looks to be a bad install. The gap seem too large and that is with the epoxy filling it. When a good installer deals with seams there is a process where they will clamp each side (suction cups or other methods) to push the pieces together. They will add the epoxy in before sandwiching and then scrape off and level the pieces. For different types of ...

Yes, you can tile on this surface - just like you can tile directly upon primed drywall. All tile needs is a sound surface - wood, drywall, cement, backer board, Denshield, plywood, brick etc.

Just to add other options (and I'm not sure these fit your situation). Use a sink wrench: eg: http://c.shld.net/rpx/i/s/i/spin/image/spin_prod_225594201?hei=520&wid=520&op_sharpen=1 Use a sawzall to cut the faucet off right above the sink (my neighbor used this method with a very difficult faucet).

Assuming this is a gap that was only closed when the parts were installed, silicone would be the way to go. However, it did not separate on its own. There must be something else moving, such as a (possibly wooden) base it sits on. You might want to check what has caused the crack to open, otherwise it might be a returning problem. Now for the fixing the ...

In my part of the world, typical tap clamps look like this or this Sometimes, things are obscured by a tap brace that you must remove. The retaining nuts are not always easy to see in the darkness under a kitchen sink full of pipes and other obstructions. But if you are removing the sink and tap and disposing of both, it doesn't matter. You can ...

Cabinets Counter top (this will take time) Backsplash Paint Flooring (I prefer flooring outside of cabinets) Install appliances Trim (typically painted separately and touched up ...

I ended up epoxying the holes closed and so far have not had any negative consequences.

I had a drawer that was stuck and perhaps by the weight of the contents inside, it had become slightly derailed on the back side. Fortunately, I could view it from below, prop it up beneath (with a $5.00 plant stand, just the right height!), and pull it out enough to un-derail it. Seems to have fixed the problem. Hope this helps.

I found the source of the problem, and thought I'd post the answer in case anyone is having the same issue. I needed to turn up the temperature on the hot water tank. For some reason, when I have the temperature set to 108, the kitchen faucet doesn't trigger the tank to kick on. When I set the temperature to 120, the problem was resolved.

Refrigerator ice makers are designed to stop when the ice holding receptacle is full. How often do you dispense ice? Are you sure the ice maker has stopped when the receptacle is not full? There is usually some sort of arm that gets raised as the receptacle fills up and when it is high enough, it shuts off the ice maker. Check to see if that arm is working ...

Command Strips are definitely worth a shot for attaching the knife rack, and will do absolutely no damage. The large picture hanging strips can hold significant weight, and can be cut to a size that will fit and be hidden. Do make sure to keep the tab in tact so that you can easily remove them when you move out. For $4, 5 minutes, and not risk of damage, it ...

If the tiles have a non-porous glaze, an adhesive over a larger contact area should work fine. Adhesive Joint Strength and Surface Area The strength of the adhesive joint is proportional to the area in contact. This is how drywallers hang 100lb sheets of drywall with adhesive and almost no screws: Because of the large area over which the adhesive ...
