Mysterious soft spot in the kitchen
 
The new tenants were pleased with there new home but had a question regarding a spot in the kitchen floor. The area had a lot of “give” to it and it didn't feel normal. I was called to look at the problem and help out.
There was no signs of moisture in the material and nothing in the unit below that helped answer the question. Since the problem needed to be addressed, I suggested opening the floor to look.

Wounded Duct – Corrections Needed!
Be responsible for your actions.
 
Mistakes can happen in the repair, remodel, and restoration of a building. It can happen to contractors, homeowners, flippers, and handymen; accidents do happen. I saw some things today that caught my eye; some mistakes in construction that should have been corrected.
While demolishing a bathroom floor, I discovered that the exhaust vent from the kitchen runs under the bathroom floor. The size of the vent pipe does not leave much room between the bathroom subflooring and the drywall ceiling in the kitchen below. This isn’t a problem … (4 comments)

Anatomy of a simple vinyl floor repair



A common area of dry rot and water damage in the home is the bathroom floor. This sort of damage may seem to be a costly endeavor, but it may be quite simple for someone with experience in floor repair. Let’s look at what is involved in replacing a floor in the bathroom.
