Re: Dripping Ceiling

One other question.....
As I was looking at the pictures again, what is the white material at the end of the insulation by the eaves? I couldn't figure out what that was from the pic.

Also added a couple pics of the "coffin" that sits on top of the stairs when they are closed.

Re: Dripping Ceiling

That is actually the rear of the facia board (gutters are on the outside of it) which is Azek. When I had the new roof and chinmey put on, I wanted the trim as much as possible to be Azek, no painting and if it gets chipped, its white all the way through, great stuff.

OK, I see exactly how the box is made, pretty cool. Looks easy too, thank you!!


Re: Dripping Ceiling

You could use a barometer(found in any garden section of a store), but It may not be very accurate unless the rooms are completely airtight.

The other is look at the weather channel. What's the humidity outside? Most buildings(I'm guessing) that have a lot of "soft" building products such as drywall/ or carpet of wood probably retain a higher humidity level than metal framing etc.

Don't know though. I think it's always good to have a dehumidifier.

Get one and run it for 30 minutes. If the collection tank fills up quickly, then YOU GOTS LOTS OF WATER! heh
