comment How do I safely install a mirror on an Ikea Besta door
Thanks @keshlam. I'll look for something shallow enough not to poke holes out the other side. It's pretty thin, which is why I relied on the mastic

comment How to safely dispose of latex paint?
UPDATE: I went with this (Home Depot recommended the same). A big plastic tub of clumping Kitty Litter ($6 or so at Meijer) and dry the surface a bit outside.

comment How to safely dispose of latex paint?
Thanks for this. I considered this, but our community only does this certain times a year. Our timeline is a bit shorter. Besides, I have quite a few cans and it's a long drive. So for that expense of effort, I don't want to walk in a situation where I know I'm doing something they'd most likely say no to.

comment What are my gutter guard options?
I saw some online reviews for the LeafGuard (surface tension system) that were pretty horrible. Again, most said that they work in a small rain (or when you see it in a demo) but not for heavy rains, where heavy can be a pretty normal rainfaill.

comment Leak at top of entry door jamb
@Rhea you may be right. There is a bit of a flatspot at the top of the frame, like a crown molding or a mantel. And luckily for me there's a seam right behind that. Some combination of cold, blowing, and ice may be pushing water to that seam. We'll see once it's warm enough to try caulking.

comment How do I quiet a noisy furnace condensate pump?
Thank you. This may help remove some noise, but i'd prefer an overall reduction, not just when the blower is on.
