  11. shingles

    I completely agree with the other posts = tear off the roof and siding wood shingles. Yes, both can be done without tearing off, but it will yield an unprofessional job. Tearing off will cost a...

    stainless braided

    Well, I was at the orange big box and all they had in stock were floodsafe. I've seen another stock them, but only 4' lengths. Ideally, I'd like a 6' length, but...I guess I'll keep looking.

    The ball valve was open - in addition, I tried resoldering that joint only after I cut it out to test. In the past, I've added flux to external joints and...
