Your garage should be slightly sloped towards the driveway so that water does not pool.

This only verifies what you have done is square, it doesn't help you put the tiles down square

I'm down voting because you haven't provided any information that would be necessary to help you solve this. A picture would be a good starting point. Links to facebook go out of date and are subject to privacy settings, so linking to it is unlikely to be helpful indefinitely.

comment Buying a House On Underground Spring. What to do?
The footings and walls are structural, but the slab is not. Some houses just have dirt especially if its only a crawl space. The concrete just provides a hard surface to put things on (walls, storage, etc.). It's usually about 4" stick and not re-enforced, hence why it frequently cracks.

I'm not sure I understand the significance of the picture you used. The slab is not structural and almost any concrete slab will crack eventually.

comment Cable amplifier repeater setup for best signal
With 3 amplifiers, I wouldn't be surprised if the cable company came knocking on your door. You will likely throw off a huge amount of noise into the system and might impact other customers.

comment Buying a House On Underground Spring. What to do?
Do you have any idea where the water is discharging to? I would suggest making sure it is discharging away from your house. That is a lot of water and I wonder if the water discharged is just making its way back into the sump.

comment My dog chewed the surface of my doors, how should I go about fixing this?
A new door will not come with door knobs, it might not even come with any holes or chiseled out areas for the hinges. The standard procedure is to place the doors on edge next to each other, and copy the location of the hinges and door knob from one door to the other.

comment What to do about particles floating in pool?
I'm not an expert so I won't add as an answer, but generally if your filter stops being effective, it is time to backwash it. Also make sure your skimmer baskets are clean

comment How to read an asbestos report
I'm not sure what percentage you will find in other scenarios, but in most cases we're talking about products made with asbestos, not made entirely of asbestos, so it's unlikely you'd find something that is 100%. This is really a question for an expert...
