Re: Bugs

I think that the technical term for those is "acorns" and "poo". I believe that they are considered non-destructive, but may be objectionable.

My wife had ours replaced...

Re: Firewall needed between Garage-Breezeway-House?

No.

BTW: a 5/8 gypsum in firewall is never needed on the wall between the garage and the house. 1/2 inch will suffice. 5/8 TypeX is only required for the ceiling when "living space" is over the...

Re: 3rd re-inspection at flip rant

Re: Ridgid RT 5X vs Flir E6

Training first, then you can evaluate your needs, yourself.

Ridgid has a sensitivity of 100mK or 120mK (their documentation is inconsistent)
