comment Alternatives to adjusting strikeplate height?
I'm going to give this a try over the weekend, both to the entry door and the screen/storm door, which both have the same problem. Prefer not to file the strikeplate(s) if I can avoid it, see comment added to the question.

comment Alternatives to adjusting strikeplate height?
I'd like to avoid filing the strikeplate because it's a highly polished brass and has both the latch and deadbolt in a single plate, so both would have to be filed. I know it won't look quite right if I filed it.

comment Can I use aluminum or plastic sheeting between decking and joists to waterproof under a deck?
Great question. I have a deck above the exit from my walkin basement and have been thinking about doing the same on a smaller scale to give room to close and lock the door without being rained on.

comment removing snow from roof
4" of snow with 1/2" of ice shouldn't be a problem for a roof in good structural condition. I worry when our roof in CT gets more than 30" of accumulation.

comment Radiant heat in ceiling
I once lived in an apartment that had radiant electric heat in the ceiling; that was in the late 1970s, no idea how old the building was at that time.

comment How do I rewire LED security light to bypass motion detector - without burning out solid state board
There's not much to go on in your question. Can you post the manufacturer and model info? Also a photo of the circuit board may help.

comment How to add a new cable box to an existing stud wall
By horizontal pieces of wood, he may be referring to fire stops, horizontal members sometimes used to prevent a stud cavity from acting like a chimney. I'm not sure when they are used, but most of the walls I've experienced do not have them.
