Analysts are changing instant. Things against Algeria are always changing. But you know it's it now it's it's a seller's market. So up until a little while ago I would have told you better off picking up existing. You can get really good bargain with the moneys rage conflicts that we won. You know a lot of people with thank you with recession that. They could have a house built and people would do cheap. The material even though we recession the materials they still wanna. And cost and I've found guys were charged in even more. Did you work in the building out. During a recession while you know if I get up off my count. Really need to make a good amount of money it says they you know took a lot most motivated so it was Costin. In one dollar per square foot the costs went up during a recession to build a house. As opposed to going down. So during that time it would have been better off for you to just by existing. There were a lot of organs. A lot of people they wondering if you get the mortgage Overton give out you buy or sell you know there was a lot of ways. If your house at this. Continued applause we have money left over to fix a remote it's important issue but now it's going back to news. You know. It probably I would I would go with AMOCO house. As it's gonna cost about the same you know cause its solar market in and you really get which you want in that line and fix and a you can get what you want in you know the money now thirty it on mortgage under construction. For a long time new construction money was trying to. There ever a time Newton comp you know appraisals because. Drove it Compton neighborhood but enough houses move and now when money is his return to market it you can have a accustomed. Race although. People that have trouble making decisions at the connect. As a lot of decisions you need to make your bill. If there's a whole lot in and you know visit. Every builders differ in some builders will hold your hand through the whole process. On some you know the public design build and knew going in and it's make it really easy for you. And then some builders with Alec hands off if you make all the decisions in the bill. So you need to find a builder then. Works with the way that you wanna do it. You know cause a lot of people they don't they don't want. They don't want him. The more independent they wanna be next with tears. In her builders that do that you know what's on your own in. You know whatever you come up with that's what they're gonna do. And Enders other builders that they really want to walk you through the process of when there's a good fit for a therefore. Everybody's matter trek in Oregon. Exactly all right still a lot more questions to get to here and ask the expert remodeling and renovation with Tim mosque. Seven you like to ask him to send an email to info at two mosques and suns dot com the next question is do you know how I could easily remove wallpaper. I have one room with old wallpaper in my house and would prefer to get rid of it. Usually wallpaper is not easily removed now the first night there. Ha I I know ways to do it better easier than other ways but I don't know of any easy weight of wall. Usually what I do I mean I've taken off all kinds of ways the way that I do it now argue. It's Golda tigers claw. And it's it's like a little ball. Was sharp little pieces and it. And you rubber over the wall paper like pro ration marks and it OK and then I usually use a steamer about oh geez and you get one blows before. For about 65 books. Indy steamer for Q Lleyton you know it takes awhile for me yeah and then it'll this little two comes out and there's like a little opinion goes over the wallpaper. In steam built up in there in it'll go through the ports that you put in there with partners. All rain and you don't wanna hold on her too long present rules sheet rock. Not long enough in the paper comes awfully hard. So trick to get the right time you have probably the first first couple pieces that you do human messed up she. But you'll get it you know it's just a matter process for Lauren and how to do it after about three or four spots. In this thing isn't as big as a piece of paper maybe half the size piece paper you hold it for the Walt's been worth it in the moisture. And and you scrape off. You you can get pretty proficient and it. But you'd be hard pressed to do a room and you might dual walls in the days. And and that's movement pretty nets are pretty. Usual we take wallpaper off. Thankfully we we don't do with the off and most people would have wallpaper and haven't off yes. But we do have to do it we usually have a crew commons comes in steamers. And maybe accrual for five guys to room in one day. For homeowner to do it unless it's a small bathroom. It can be relate I'm assuming. If it's a big room in the panel cut paper news. You know we might just read Ricci rock for roots that make it right over top. Yet you decorous sheet rock and rain on top and sometimes that's the quickest way to go into it all depends you know there's some sheets. That you know if they size in the prime wall nickel sized emphasized the wall. And it's really not that the good of a glue on. On the wallpaper. You can appeal often and compete with the injury to the glue off and that goes pretty quick but there's some stuff. Wallpaper up there. Piece of like fabric. Yes and the stuff that's like fabric enemy actually wipe the glue on the wallpaper it just wasn't preclude it they put in any style that it is really our sponsor forever it is you know usually won't reveal someone that. We'll just take all the sheet rock off or corporate. And it's it's like equipment trying to get. A story when it comes to getting old stuff removed missiles wallpaper in popcorn ceilings or Candida remnants of that. The old days and running back. Or office house luckily you know the popcorn comes off pretty easy but in the wallpaper if you're. Most times they did just bathrooms. Kitchens. All paper and Walt so they aren't that big of room to do if you don't catch you have watched him race. So it's not that much offs and with the aftermath of arch. But every once walk across the house for 60s70s. And we wallpaper and it is long process that it off. Even though steaming along long process it is one of the easiest ways to do compared to what about wood paneling and awesome meal I at least eleven Austin at like with ambling along over. A wreck him some money that is at. Easy to do. Usually will just sheet rock right over I'll leave it right in place you have to extend the outlets in the news in the window James and things like that. As usual rate over. But you know there are times we're going to take it down. We did one not too long ago where they had all the paneling we remodeled it those jobs that never ended you know we were there. There were there did knock out all they just one of the bigger room just decided they wanted to look at this and they want all the pop corn off the ceiling and they wanted to do gliding. And then they'd been in like apparently. So we have taken the paint off but it was this house was built. Now there's like sixty years ago. So we opted to take paneling off so we can upgrade installation. In and so we had those are and the things you wanna take into account. Here's once we insulated walls and other government and some money back in and spend as much utilities there wasn't that much more work ethic off him. And our ranks well it's time for another break and still want more questions that viewers to get to and ask the expert remodeling and renovations with Tim mosque. There's a question you like to ask him. But it and an email is sent it to info and it's Tim mosques and suns dot com the phone numbers 8774994361. 8774994361.

Back to the questions to him excellence as I have copper flashing around my chimney and I found that it's roading were ever a nail goes through the flashing. Why would this be happening and is a possible to seal the holes. Well it's you wanna take a guess at this. I think that's a natural chemical reaction isn't between copper in. Well it's an actual natural reaction to a copper and aluminum stuff yeah okay you can't mix copper and aluminum. I've. And it's surprising Emery countless guys that do this you know they should know that you can't make moon copper it just they they dissolve the Olympic road. I've seen. Very nice copper gutters put it koppers expensive chair and then they used aluminum hangers. On the inside of the copper and just started you know openings and all of you have to use you know copper copper well. So. What they need to do is get out the copper mails where we have copper nails they're gonna have not. Now you want copper sales we have to get up at Bloomingdale's yes we'll get to aluminum nails out of the copper recruiting stop. There is caught cold flashing clock. You can get them is still the holes. And then you can use cooperative we are not there are corporate males now they're really soft. He has now what you gonna pound them into anything you want yet you might have to create real form. Because they are very soft. And sometimes if you're trying to put one in in Italy the mortar and fireplace. You might have the real now first. But they're there or call for males but athletic as we used. Instead of copper copper sales cost cost much money that aluminum. And aluminum July stronger and they don't know whose chemical reactions of what the root for. So copper copper aluminum for loans. That makes sense our rights when chemistry here and ask the expert remodeling in renovations. With Jim moss seven you'd like to ask him to send your emails to info apps. Tim mosques and songs.com. The next question Tim Allen added deck to the side of my house. But I happen to have a septic tank right where I want to build. Would that be a problem the deck will be about five feet off the ground so I was hoping it wouldn't matter. Well you know it's it's a problem as far as building. I've seen people ignore this you know go to school with a deck. I've seen some crazy contraptions you know put put to death rate over septic tank in vendors like a trap door with a deck ticket to septic. Crazy stuff you know. That doesn't pass code and I'm not supposed to do. And people about it for years and got away with that kind of stuff but that's candlelight and because you can't you can't put a dent in your house anyway with a target. And inspectors gonna come out and see. Yet a septic tank mean to get the permit to get a clear environment health. Environmental health and a couple of make sure that you your enough feet away from the septic system to be up to code. So in years past you know I've seen guys additions on septic debated pull permits. And you know the county didn't know the city didn't know. Because they don't come around and do. In person check your property. But now people argument check on her property every year whether in or not that's from settle. Google Earth Google yet you know so some people go get the wind up within a tax bill. You know four decks that. Google Earth pointed out on it that was built. So they're gonna they're gonna catch you if you do you that you don't wanna dues and then another thing besides that. If you ever gonna sell your house. I'm. You know like I told news houses are moving out yet so a lot of people are call me. In my price fixing this fiction that. Because the go home inspectors find things wrong with houses that applied. The banks of our you know they're lending money and houses but their standards that kind of picked. It used to be drive by appraisals drive home his bags again it's not that Wayne Gardner actually required inspections. And then the mortgage company will say well if organ alone you have money that we won business in this fix on the list and pick everything. But things that you know like foundations root of and on that list of things now it is now wants announcers are sent the construction if you have a septic tank. The bank is requiring accompanied come out and verify that the tank experts post debate that is not too close to the structure. And that it's now. You know they'll pick up but we did it look on the inside and speculation that cracks but they're also making sure that there's nothing built too close to it. Where wasn't put in the ground to close house. So you would have a real problem when you go to sell my house if you went ahead with a plan put back on him all the way to do it me you know it would it from maybe twelve months. Is is just just put it on Adobe permit but you're gonna get caught so you're better off just. So what's that does that mean moving the septic tank and Kenny just not build that well you know you might need to put the deck and a different spot. Or you know every once in awhile now we've never move descent because it. But we have moved to time because bishop who want additional now and we've dug the tank and and moved into worse boast. Or worthy inspectors said that he won in its environmental health comes out if you yards big enough bacon bacon. You were they want to thank you put. And and you moved tank over and redeem your lines and everything and and you pre tradition. So it's it's not cheap you know usually cost them 5000 dollars so. So a command 5000 books that that's why we use and onto for Tex would ever done for deck and a people aren't going to be a while on an extra 5000 deck that's the problem. But if they're put not a 100000 dollar addition each year in a 180000 dollar addition and they spend an extra seven. Five to 7000 dollars we've thank you know it's a small percentage of the budgets do. And let's keep the questions move on here and ask the expert remodeling and renovations of Tim mosque. Have a question for Tim to send your email to info at Tim mosques and suns dot com. Our Jim I have a finished basement that I want to put a bathroom in the sewer pipes for the house or in the floor above the basement though would that be a problem when plumbing. The bathroom. Well you gotta get that sewage water Al subway and if it's overhead only intuitive with the public. In some people think they have the you know reap long polygamist up or else. Your existing following yours is the wasteland as they were his. What you need to do is find a place in your basement but you can never rule that has a public station. In what what it is you dig a pit and and you bury the tank and his bank is the police Hilda. It has and exhaust pipe that goes outside and in there will be a paw so when this tank feels that we flush the toilet extra hour. Run your faucet all the water runs into the tank. When it fills up it'll triple lever on the pump and pump usually don't text and expects the pump pump everything. In a pop and up to elevation need to run out which requires some space. Yeah you gotta have the the space space to put it that when you're working in a basement yet the break up the concrete. In order put in this public station so the further the public station is away from the bathroom. The more concrete go to Africa because you know all your wife Rita Twilley showered sank are gonna run underneath the concrete and the run to thank the current program. So usually it'll be a little closet right next to the bathroom. I'm. I'm never I've never put it like across. The basement in it along seven foot basement of the public station on its side and a break on her but they're always using real close together. But that's the way to do it house talking to edit week. And when I explain what needed to be donny's a lot I don't wanna pumping station as pomp and go well. Yeah what you have no chili's or if you're gonna have the bathroom in there that's that's what you're gonna have to do. And is often as a basement. Is use the basement bathroom. You know that Paul could lasted twenty years I've seen pumps that or use all the time. The fact over at my house I have a pumping station. 42 bathrooms. And those bathrooms are used the law. You know cause it's it's like exercise there telecast a friend so on my son's generalized break comes in their news Tuesday exercise equipment. And and then there's a shower so soured when it finished so they could use quite a bit in about every five years I have replaced that paw. And that's a really good pomp but it lists like five years but if it would be a my house is a commercial use but it's almost like it commercially yet confederate Jim. Maybe we have a pretty large Felix about a time maverick and his treadmills elliptical it's the weights. And rebels on the map space and use that battle against you know it was flush on the shower on. But pop as much as it used if it'll last five years between change so most people's basement.

Be a problem. In the and it might not be all OK usually wanna look at cracks. In the 10 with the engineers tell me these things that we look for. They get reluctantly experts. Cracks and now. I know cracked because there's not a natural semen sheet rock. But at the crack is were two pieces of sheet rock come together. Not so concerned about that that packages after it and it could happen anywhere house of two pieces of rug on the other. You know that crack. VA vertical. Yeah straight vertical crack. Or straight or as well. Were two pieces come together it's not uncommon for that the crackle orbit which shrink and while on the season's different change humidity. In your house you know it's really draw in a winner on. Low moisture content and and that's what people are called me in any of these big cracks in our Woodson. In Albany does human Fuller and and it's summertime. It's just the opposite. You know will be. Crowned moulding people. Caucus labels nodded. Real tight. Or on. Because there's so much moisture in your house but he needed the humidifier. And if that's all that's going on than at the crack no big deal to be cracked vertical crack. If you see you diagonal crack in the jagged and cracked. Now summit is but a lot of force she rock were the airport. And and you could. Foundation. You could have to which are all buddies now and you know that that can make the ground with. Or you could have watered down there gallery some of the footers and Anders there's a bunch of things could be. But if you see diagonal cracks you'd deaf in one issue in alcoholic engineers structural out there and he can fix them. If you just Selig horizontal vertical crack which wanted to news. Just puts. Eulogized mud rain over the cracked. They have patches. Those Home Depot. And you wanna put that over the cracks first. And then mud all over eyes if you just by the crack crack com. But if you put it at first and money it. If it keeps coming back Bennett called structural. Want one chief exit and you fix it shouldn't it should come. And he said they can possibly. The tag crack could possibly be sent under the foundation which leads us in our next question. As this is there any time of the year that is preferable for foundation repair. Well usually our climate you can you can do. Some people they wanna say brief ropes so 000. Well I'll do it went on there were you know all of them now. So maybe if you wanna thanks rob and consideration. But most people what they need to do anyways Ruth wrote we who when you dig out of foundation. They of these big over drugs and it'll lead to replace any that make it. In our climate I would say now in other places definitely on yours are important when you know. But we usually don't get that many days the cool weather this last winner. It was Roth foundation. We we had some foundation that we started the Phoenix in November. And it was later in the you know ranked before we get back on the slow. Has so much moisture and there was just no work. So other than an out of the ordinary and extraordinary winner. Usually fixed base here. But in other climate can be so cold you wouldn't wanna go and expose the Fuller. You know not in the coal and then you can problems but here you know we really don't have rock not not in the shore area. Open amount yeah North Carolina mountains you know you get around in places like. Now you'll Expos have found. At a certain time Q you have I mean it all depends. On the severity of the problem if you're just about likes and cracks it. You know you you wouldn't do that like up in Boone in the wintertime. But I've seen some houses girls at all. I think I've showed you picture a house and a that was like in a sinkhole. Now wouldn't matter what time of the year and you get there and stopped thinking exactly where uniter and how true. If you're listening via podcast in Alaska it'll be repairing your foundation there in the wintertime you. Others hold it up building up their letters like that Arctic engineering and almost. Yes and I don't even know I can't even figure out elect wants anyway as you're watching all yeah yeah that's why my favorite things that is a model what's beef are you're watching the last issue that is undated moved. Acknowledge a flight watch and how to do things that they're at a NASA Shakespeare it's the 75 below I'd just like to watch on TV but you know trying to deal with construct you know.
