The Wall has a powerful search engine that will go all the way back to 2002. Use "quotation marks" around multiple-word searches. RIGHT-CLICK on the results and choose Open Link In New Window so you'll be able to get back to your results. Happy searching!
In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
As a homeowner I enjoy & appreciate this forum greatly. Lots of wonderfully generous people willing to help each other. My one stumbling block is the commonly used acronyms that contractors use. I think it would be great if there was a "sticky" on the forum where I could look them up or perhaps someone like Dan could point me to the appropriate book to buy.
