High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 19, 1976, High Point, North Carolina 12c High Point Enterprise sunday september 19, 1976 Here s the answer House of the week by Andy Lang a new features q a there is a Largo tree in our backyard which was paved with Concrete Many years ago although there is a Circle of dirt around the tree. So that no Concrete is within three feet of it. The paved portion has begun to crack and Rise a Little on one Side this apparently is due to a part of the tree Root growing at or above ground level at that Point my plan is to break up the Concrete in that area Cut off the part of the Root that is above ground and then repave the damaged Section it seemed like a Good idea until one of my friends told me he thought cutting out a Peice of the Root would kill the tree is this true0 a 1 11 answer that by telling you of my own experience in a similar situation. The roots of a tree in our front year began to emerge in the Center of a Lawn it became impossible to run the Lawn Mower Over that portion of the Lawn without having the Blades hit the roots i chopped out two sections of the roots each about 5 feet Long then reseeded the area the grass grew there and the tree has thrived that was four years ago q in putting Down floor boards in an attic which is More Likely to Warp a wide boards or narrow ones9 we live in a Damp area. A narrow boards Are less Likely to give you trouble q. A the last time i used a paint roller to do the Walls of one of the rooms in our House there were places where the paint seemed to be heavier than in others i used Latex paint since i have a similar Job to do soon i d like to avoid this trouble. Can you Tell me what i did wrong a a it sounds very much As if you violated the principle of painting a that you should Start a new stroke in a dry area and then move to the Section already painted with a roller dip it into the tray. Then Roll it Over the corrugated part to remove excess paint begin rolling on the part of the Wall next to where you were previously painting then gradually move towards the painted area blending in the gaps. If you begin in the wet Section. You will be putting too much paint there and this will cause the problem you encountered also Don t Roll too fast and Don t spin the roller at the end of a stroke. Q. A i made a Patch in our Concrete Patio with a mixture of Sand Cement and gravel. It looked All right for a week or two. But now has begun to Flake a bit. What caused this a. A one of the primary causes of flaking in a new Concrete Patch Job is the failure to Quot cure the Patch properly. This Means wetting Down the repaired area a couple of times a Day for several Days. Or place a piece of wet Burlap Over the Patch and re moisten it occasionally. The latter method is especially Good when the Patch will be in direct sunlight during the Day. Q. A you told someone a few weeks ago that the sweating on his inside windows might be caused by ill fitting storm Sash permitting cold air to get past it to the inside since several of the inside windows on my House were bothered by sweating even though i have storm Sash. I decided to refit All the storm windows. It worked on All but two of the windows on these two. There is still sweating on the inside windows what do you think can be causing this9 the storm Sash has wooden frames. A. There is no doubt that air must still be getting past the storm Sash of those two windows even though the openings might not be visible get some of that Putty weatherstripping that comes in Rolls apply it All around the outside of the Sash pushing it firmly into the joints where the Wood and the Frame meet meanwhile consider another possibility a that the Putty around the edges of the Glass in the storm Sash is in need of repair or replacement and is permitting air to infiltrate q a i just took the finish off a Cabinet with a varnish remover i now find that the surface is All fuzzy. What caused this and How can i eliminate it a. A some types of varnish removers occasionally raise the Grain of the Wood which is what happened in this Case. Sanding the surface will take off the fuzz. Sand with the Grain using a Fine Grade of paper q i Don t have a question but i would like to make a complaint it s about people who hire a Handyman and then hold him off on the payment or in some cases. Don t pay him at All when they hire a regular plumber or electrician or Carpenter. They pay him immediately. I am retired but do Handyman jobs to add to my fixed income. Many times i have finished a Job Only to be told a Check will be sent to me. Sometimes i have to Call four or five times to get it and every once in a while i Don t get it at All please please Don t hire somebody to do work for you unless you pay him on the spot or at least within a week or two. A. A lets Hope your no question does some Good. Q a i have never seemed to get straight the difference Between Cement and Concrete is there a difference and. If so what a a Cement is a term loosely used to mean a mixture of Portland Cement and Sand mixed with water. It is also called a Sand mix Concrete is a mixture of Portland Cement Sand and gravel with water added the term Portland Cement by the Way. Is often regarded As a Brand name but it Isnit. It s a Type of Cement originally found in Portland. England Many companies sell it for either of Andy Lang s booklets.

Name address City state _ zip make checks payable to the High Point Enterprise rooms a the Utility room a there is no floor covering there seems to be a Fine powdery substance there As though the Concrete is disintegrating. A neighbor who once had the same problem says that the condition can be corrected by using a solution it sodium silicate he says he had a Handyman do it several years ago. Bul that he does t remember exactly How much water was in the solution can you help me a a yes but with a precaution. If you later intend to paint the floor you May find that the paint won t hold Well to a sodium silicate finish of you decide to go ahead with the Job. The mixture is one part of sodium silicate to three parts of water it you plan to paint the Hoer use one of the commercial Concrete sealers while most will not interfere with a later paint Job. Read the Label first to be sure q what s the difference bet Ween Interior and exterior plywood As far As the Quality of the Wood is concerned9 a the main difference is that the adhesive used Between the plies of the exterior Type is Waterproof whereas the other adhesive is merely water resistant. In some cases the Wood layers in the exterior plywood Are better suited to outdoor exposure q Fence. In making a picket is there any Rule of thumb on How far apart the pickets should be9 a. The simplest Way to handle the matter is to use one of the pickets As a spacer q i have been told to size a Wall before hanging wallpaper what s the purpose of sizing a. A sizing is a Glutinous material which fills the pores in surface and makes the paper hang better some wallpaper pastes contain sizing and thus do away with a separate coating operation q can you give me instructions on adding a bathroom to our house9 a a not even if this column occupied the entire Page it s an involved process that requires skill not merely knowledge. You d have to install water pipes drains and vents among other things. Even if you could handle it. You d probably find that it would be a violation of a local ordinance for anyone but a licensed plumber to undertake the Job q within a Short time. I expect to have a roofer put Asphalt shingles on our House which now has wooden shingles can the Asphalt be installed Over the Wood a a yes a certain amount of preparatory work must be done a replacing Loose nails nailing Down curled ends Etc the roofer will know what to do Cape by Andy Lang a combination of the Best elements of the ranch and the two Story House is evident in this charming Cape cod. The plan makes the House Ideal for finishing in stages since there is a master bedroom on the first floor sufficient if the House is to be occupied Only by a couple. The upstairs two bedrooms could be finished later if required if the Choice should be to Complete the second floor at the outset the first floor suite it includes a dressing area and a private bathroom could serve As a Home office Den or whatever desired. Wood siding and shuttered a Multi paned windows on the outside Are in the Early american tradition along with such details As roof line dormers and a Coppola atop the garage.
