    Re: Sealing a deck over a living area

    I'd probably go with something that calls itself waterproofing. And I'd need to know what the deck is now before suggesting anything.

    Re: Cinder blocks under slab

    Is it just a single stack, or is it maybe a part of a short retaining wall for those steps?

    Indow. Limited distribution but an easy-on, easy off product. Mostly intended to eliminate drafts from leaky windows.

    Re: Bestflashing details for low end homes

    That turnback flashing was originally meant for use with tile roofing, especially Spanish tiles (where it doesn't leave a friggin hump in asphalt shingles)

    Dick,
    Is that a contractors CGL policy or an architect's professional liability polity?

    Re: Everlast Siding

    Looks just like Resysta. Maybe it is, just rebranded. If Resysta, its a bulletproof product with a good European track record. Comes at high-end commercial price tag though

    #5 reminds me of a great tongue-in-cheek assessment from a roofer I work with:
