Handyman Tips – H2O Conduits

My favorite Handyman, Craig Emmert, has a Blog called Craig’s Clout : Tip “o” the Week. He has some very informative articles and I love the way he writes so I asked if I could share them with you. He said “Great!” and if you need Handyman help don’t hesitate to contact him at craigscloutandrepairs@gmail.com.

Let’s Build Something Together

When those proverbial tears fall from above, and it’s not still growing (even Humans water) does NOT matter where it comes from, WILL begin breaking down any surface except copper and some plastics.

With every other item that gets wet, the moisture needs an out or slope as to evaporate in soil hopefully if it’s going to allow things to still grow, like plants, trees or our gardens! The rain, night dew, even the sprinklers in your yard can be harmful, a whole other topic.

In the image above is an exterior staircase showing an example of the elements that are life, never getting to evaporate away from non-growing wood. The surface mounted fasteners allowed wicking like inertia to break down the day it was completed.

To save Grace here, the rebuild design has all underneath connections and that has way more longevity, if not a Your Lifetime even. So stay tuned, stay happy and remain productively improving Your Home for sustainability!
