I've got polymeric sand between my pavers.  Weeds will occasionally sprout in it and ants will come up through it, but it perhaps would be worse with regular sand.  It's also pretty stable but will wash out of joints in some areas of heavy flow or dripping.  Point being that while it's better than regular sand, it could be better.

Better install a carbon monoxide detector in your home or apartment. It is just as important as a smoke detector. Bad air in means bad air out. Times & environments change sometimes without your knowledge with air handlers. A leak can suck in poison gases if near car exhaust and affect muscles & brain. Even death.

Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everybody

Annihilation by Assimilation

 

Every white country on earth is supposed to become multicultural and multiracial. EVERY white country is expected to end its own race and end its own culture. No one asks that of ANY non-white country.

 

The Netherlands is more crowded than Japan, Belgium is more crowded than Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve the RACE problem by bringing in millions of third-worlders and assimilating and intermarrying with them.

 

Everybody says the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to bring in the third world and assimilate with them.

 

Immigration, tolerance, and especially assimilation are being used against the white race.

 

All this immigration and intermarriage is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries.

 

Anti-white is called anti-racist, but it leads to the disappearance of one race and only one race, the white race. The real aim of anti-racism is to wipe out the white race or make it a minority anywhere it exists.

 

It is genocide.

That edging painter was wayyyyy overpriced, you can get them around here for less than $10, it may not be contracter grade, but unless you paint for a living you don't need that anyways.

This article seemed like a shopping guide more than a DIY assessment.  A pity. . . for those of us who really enjoy DIY.

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to go trolling for a man so I can have access to the muscles and skills needed for many home improvement projects, and hiring help gets expensive. I happen to appreciate tremendously these tips. There were at least three that I already know will come in very handy.  Thanks MSN Home! - and to the people who had useful advice to share : )

Radiant heat strippers are a great way to remove paint!  Here's some friendly advice to any DYIer who is doing a complete home/large project.   Spend about $850 on a PaintShaver Pro AND make you own radiant heat stripper (Google it)!!!!  It's easy to make and I saved about $300 on mine.  The PaintShaver is fast!!  Worth every penny I paid but doesn't get into tight spots where you need too.

I don't know anything about this kerdi board. but i do know alot about the concrete backer board and it has been used for years now and has held up i have found on the other hand a better product which is cheaper than this kerdi board but a little higher than concrete board. Weidi is the board i am talking about. This stuff is completely water proof membrane and it is the only thing i will install in an up stairs shower or bathroom. they make a board thin enough to lay on the floor before the tile which will water proof it which will keep the house in great condition, no water damage from leaking tile grout. I have been a licensed plumber for almost 19 years now and i have done new concrustruction and service and repair/remodel for this whole time and i will definitely say that concrete board is on it's way out and these new membranes are coming in.

A real man is all you really need.  Someone with the skills and the muscles to do the job.   This article is another example of the wussification of the human male.  You guys sound like the kind of men I would want for a handyman.

You want to pay four times the cost of concrete backer board to avoid lifting 800 lbs?  Don't be a ****.  Lift the extra weight and enjoy the benefits of a good solid job with a proven product.  What is really silly is lifting that extra cash out of your wallet!

Woodsculpt, woodepox? Just another lazy mans way for a lazy person to do a half-a$$ed job of repair when the only way to do it is to do it right by replacing the rotten wood. It doesn't cost a lot more to do it right the first time instead of patching the patch every three or four years. Of course anyone who would actually use any of these tips has no business working on their own house in the first place.
