comment Vinyl tile installation over a concrete basement floor with moisture
When I looked into it a while ago, it seemed like there were many complaints about mold growth on Dricore. Something to look into if you are considering it.

You also have to be concerned about the MDF splitting when you are screwing into the edge.

comment Dado (+glue) or just screws (+glue) for painted MDF bookcase
Thinking about it, the statement about the strength advantage is probably not entirely accurate for MDF. Edge screwing into plywood or solid wood provides poor "pull-apart" strength. For MDF, there is really not a significant difference in this number. However, the pocket joint will still be advantageous in this case. The screw head will not "mushroom" the edge around the countersink, and the pocket screws tend to pull a joint tight without extra clamping.

comment Is it safe to drill small holes in load-bearing concrete beams for expansion bolts?
If the beam is metal, then you could try some large neodymium magnets (e.g. amazon.com/Applied-Magnets-Strong-Neodymium-Magnet/dp/…)

comment What could cause smelly water in the bathroom sink only?
It could also be an AAV failure. Was this bathroom added as part of a remodel?

Does it smell if you turn on the blower without the heat?
