Question 1

When you are making multiple cuts on the same board, it is important to account for the width of the saw blade you use when taking measurements. Often, the width of a saw blade will be 1/16 of an inch, so, if this is not accounted for, your measurements will be off of an inch after four cuts or inch after eight. To correct for the width of the saw blade, simply mark each measurement 1/16 of an inch longer than its exact distance after your first measurement has been marked.

Question 2

Succulents often grow in arid areas of the planet. They have adapted to harsher climates and are able to store water in order to make it through long periods without rain. In addition, they can also grow in environments without nutrient-rich soil. For example, they are able to grow in cracks in rocks and soil made up of mostly sand. Many are able to grow in extremely high temperatures and can survive in cold temperatures at night in the desert. These hardy plants are often used by gardeners in container gardens because many succulents stay small throughout their live span and most are easy to maintain.

Question 3

Waterproofing a flat metal roof for the winter months can be a painful and time-consuming process. First, one has to sweep all of the debris off of the roof and then wash all of the dirt and grime off of the surface of the roof so that the sealant adheres properly. Once all debris is removed and the water has dried, one can began to apply the sealant. It is best to pick a warm, sunny day to seal a roof and it is important to check the weather to make sure rain is not expected in the few days following the sealing process. Most sealants can be applied with a paint roller. The first layer should be applied in one direction; for example, north to south. Once the first layer is completely dry, the second layer can be applied in the opposite direction. Once these layers are dry, more coats can be applied, if necessary. The roof is now ready to make it through the rainy season without any leaks.

Question 4

To make sure a deck, a planter box, or another building project is square, one can do one of two things. The best way is to measure, diagonally, from one corner of the project to another. Next, a measurement of the other diagonal space should be obtained. If the project is square, the two diagonal measurements will be equal. If not, adjust the frame until the two measurements are the same. The next method of checking to see if a project is square is to use a tape measure to measure three inches from one corner up one side of the frame. Mark that point and then measure four inches down the other part of the frame. Mark that point as well. Measure between the two points. If the distance is exactly five inches, your project is square. If not, the frame needs to be adjusted until the diagonal measurement between the two points equals exactly five inches.

Question 5

If you want success when painting a deck, you have to prepare beforehand. First, the deck should be inspected for paint that is peeling. If any old, peeling paint is found, it should be sanded off until a spot in the paint is reached in which nothing is peeling up off the deck. Next, the deck should be swept and washed until there is no debris or dirt left on it. These steps help to ensure that the paint will adhere properly to the deck. Next, one should use painter's tape to mask off any area that touches the deck that will not be painted. Once that is complete, you should make sure you have a durable new brush, and, perhaps a paint roller. The paint needs to be thoroughly stirred prior to beginning the job and you should make sure there is no excess paint on the brush or roller that would cause dripping when you begin. Once the painting is completed to satisfaction, the masking tape needs to be removed. If you prepare, by using these steps, your final painted product will look better and more professional, as well as last longer, than if you had gone straight to painting without any preparation.
