comment Was this basement window installed properly?
make sure that downspout is extended a little further away from the large window well. as it looks in the pic, water could end up running back into it.

comment Electric requirements for gas stove
Personal preference - look at duel fuel ranges. I am assuming you are talking about ranges with cooktop and a stove, and moving to gas to get a gas cooktop. If so, get the duel fuel ones have gas cooktop but electric ovens. Gas ovens are not as popular because they are harder to regulate temperature and do not cook as evenly. As other have said, run 220 so you have it and you you are not limited in the future when you get the new one.

comment What should I do about an overflowing septic system?
Well, its technically one leech field. There are just multiple beds. We have 6 runs, divided into 2 pairs of three. So at one time, the septic is using 3 runs. Almost everyone around here in NE Ohio is that way in one form or another, maybe 2x2 runs or 2x4 runs, etc.

comment Automatic garage door opener opens when it hits the floor
this happens to me when just a little bit of ice and snow build up right where the door hits the floor. It does not look like much, and may even look like it is closed, but I have to clean it out.

comment Can I run CAT5/6 cables parallel to electrical cables?
didn't realize 6e was not a "true standard", although if you google it everyone sells it. Updated that to clarify. Also changed the safety comment.

comment Is urethane based grout worth the cost for bathroom tile?
12x12 mainly, but with some clipped corners and a sheet of 4 1x1 tiles on those corners. So more grout than just a normal single tile layout.
