Sound Off: What are the most common maintenance pitfalls when selling or buying a home?

A: The market’s listings look great with the newly installed flooring, fresh paint and brand-new kitchen countertops. Staging furniture makes it look fantastic, but what’s really going on underneath it all? Some of the common maintenance issues that get overlooked by consumers are drainage, the condition of the foundation, dry-rotted wood on rafter tails and windows, and rats in the attic and crawlspace. Part of the reason the current sales prices are so high is almost every house goes on the market staged, painted, inspected, repaired and updated. Buyers want the house to be in p…

Aide to Penn. Gov. Candidate Sends Anti-Trans Caitlyn Jenner Meme

A campaign consultant to Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner apparently thinks it’s OK to make fun of transgender people. Ray Zaborney, a consultant recently hired by Wagner’s campaign to handle media, last Thursday texted a Nike parody ad mocking Caitlyn Jenner to three top Wagner campaign staffers — and, accidentally, to a reporter for the news website Billy Penn. The parody ad, in the style of Nike’s “Just Do It” advertisements, showed a black-and-white photo of Jenner with the text “Believe in something. Even if it means cutting your dick off.” Man…

Brown's Ford looking to create an addition

Brown’s Ford looking to create an addition

Today’s breaking news and more in your inbox Engineer Joseph Bianchine of ABD Engineers LLP addresses a proposed Brown’s Ford project at the Johnstown City Planning Board meeting Tuesday at City Hall. (The Leader-Herald/Michael Anich) JOHNSTOWN — The city Planning Board reviewed a site plan for a proposed vehicle maintenance addition to the Brown’s Ford dealership on Route 30A Tuesday afternoon at City Hall. The board declared itself lead agency for the project’s required state Environmental Quality Review. Board Chairman Peter K. Smith also noted that City Code requires a public hearing on the project. The hearing was set for 4 p.m. Oct. 2 at City Hall. He said final action on Brown’s application may be taken by the board then. Engineer Joseph Bianchine of ABD Engineers LLP of Schenectady presented Brown’s project to the board. Brown’s wishes to construct a 4,800-square-foot metal building addition to its existing 121 N. Comrie Ave. building. The addition would be at the rear northwest corner. The new space will be used for maintenance of vehicles. The add on would occupy a paved area so there will not be an increase in stormwater runoff. No plumbing facilities are anticipated in the addition. One shed will be removed and relocated on site, if necessary. Bianchine said the addition will sit back, but will be seen from North Comrie Avenue. He said the project will have no new outdoor lighting, and no additional signage. Smith said the project must be referred soon to the Fulton County Planning Board for its review because of its proximity to a state highway. Michael Anich covers Johnstown and Fulton County news.

Don't let kids' future drip away

Don’t let kids’ future drip away

It isn’t a failing that the Detroit Public Schools Community District opened this week with all its water fountains turned off. It was the right, reasonable and responsible thing to do. Like school districts everywhere, Detroit’s buildings are aging. Unlike some districts, Detroit checked every tap and every drinking fountain and found too many of them were leaking copper and lead into the water that students would be drinking when they returned to school. So, the district did the right thing. It turned off the faucets and provided purified water dispensed from stand-alone coolers. It’s…

Environment: Alternative water sources – Greywater reuse

Traditionally, each step of the human water cycle — how we acquire, treat, use, treat again, and dispose of the water, was dealt with as discrete, isolated activities. Separate departments, divisions, and districts were created to handle each of these isolated activities. Unfortunately, this traditional recycled water paradigm sometimes also comes with a high-priced additional expense of duplicate infrastructure to re-transport the recycled water back to the users, thus limiting the number of users that can be served. The main use of recycled water is irrigation of crops and large lan…

Chicago home where 10 kids died in fire hit with violations

More than 40 code violations have been issued to the owner of a Chicago apartment building following a fire that killed 10 children earlier this week, according to city records. The violations include failing to provide working smoke detectors, which firefighters have said likely would’ve saved the children’s lives. City inspectors cited the owner three years ago for a missing smoke detector in the same unit where Sunday’s fire began. The Sunday fire — the city’s deadliest blaze in more than a decade — started in the rear of the building during a sleepover. The children who died ranged in…

As you’ll see in the video the PCB, main control panel, some internal [and external] piping and circ pump all must be fully removed in order to gain access to a failed 3-way diverter valve. If you’re not sure what the valve does, you may not be alone but its really quite simple; when idle the v…

How To: Turn Off Your Home’s Water

Chances are there’ll come a time when you’ll have to turn off the water supply in your home. You may need to do so for a scheduled plumbing repair or before leaving on a long trip. Then there are the emergency situations—such as when a pipe bursts somewhere behind the drywall or your bathroom is flooded with water—at which point there’s often very little time to react. What’s more, closing and re-opening the valves periodically will prevent them from getting stuck in place and allow you to inspect them for corrosion or broken connections.
