comment How do I remove blown in attic insulation?
I know exactly what you mean! I've had a few like that in the past.

comment Is it OK to strip a wire in the middle for attaching a fixture?
Well done on making the right call. It's probably not to code anywhere anymore, and wire nuts are a better option all around.

comment How do I measure a standard sliding glass door?
I agree with Shirlock and Gunner, get the contractor to do the measurements. Don't buy a door yourself at auction, you are asking for lots of headache!

comment How do I remove blown in attic insulation?
Fiasco's right, there's no easy way to do it. Remember to wear a mask and eye protection for all the dust if you do decide to pull it all down. If it was me I'd find a way to live with it if possible rather than attack that job!

comment How can I counteract the effects of WD-40?
WD-40 is also corrosive and will tend to make things worse, another reason to wipe it off!

comment How can I purge air from a baseboard heating system with the spigots on the wrong side?
@BMitch, that should be an answer, not a comment. I totally agree, he shouldn't need to add anything in order to bleed the system.

Could you post a picture of the thermostat? You'll probably get better advice that way.

Is it a single breaker going, or are several tripping at once?

comment Can anything interesting be done with Kidde's interconnect wires?
The answer there is to get it fixed, not to mess around with it. Maybe the question you should be asking is how you can stop it going off for the wrong reasons. Try vacuuming them out and replacing all their batteries first would be my advice there.

My advice would be to not mess with your smoke/CO2 detector system, your life depends on it working.

comment Should I primer my walls/ceiling before I spray on texture?
Read the instructions on the can, it will likely suggest whether priming is necessary or not.
