Why do you recommend the Titebond III over a Liquid Nails product?

comment What type of glue should I use to repair my hardwood floor?
In my case, the boards are being glued in the tongue/groove joint. Does the construction glue have any advantage over the Titebond III suggested by shirlock homes?

comment How do I handle significant snow and ice dams on a 4/12 gable roof with ridge vents?
The problem I had with raking the roof, was the ice dams reformed but now they were further up the roof where I couldn't reach them. For my house, since I can't clear the entire roof, I'm better off trying to deal with ice dams at the drip edge where I can reach them and where my ice/water shield is providing protection.

I should add that my roof line ends just a few inches past the wall. I don't have an overhang like you find in most home construction.

@Shirlock - No offense, I probably wasn't clear enough. I removed insulation from the bottom, not the peak. As I stated, warm air rises and thaws from the top first, so I had to get warm air to the bottom so the thawed water wouldn't refreeze.

comment Determining if there is insulation behind a wall
You can also try renting a fiber optic camera. This will allow you to actually look inside the wall. Even if you have insulation, that doesn't rule out possible gaps and openings in the insulation which can allow drafts of cold air into the walls.

I wish I could give a +2 for finding a mirror under the mirror.

comment How to fix a leaky flapper valve?
Can you replace the rubber gasket the flapper valve seals against? It could be old and brittle which prevents a good seal when the valve closes down on it.
