Okay, Sandy has come and almost gone and my den's carpeted floor at the front of the house is sopping wet. You could pick up a cheap pin moisture meter from a hardware store and poke he gypsum around the window.
Thoughts I've already had include tearing out the destroyed gypsum board in the den in an area somewhat larger than I need to tear out anyway to try to find the leak entrance, breaking out the mortar on the sill bricks and redoing it, replacing the entire window since I can't open it anymore anyway, THEN trying to find and fix the leak, etc. BTW, the mortar between the bricks is slightly yellow in color - I have NO IDEA how to obtain that coloring from run-of-the-mill mortar.
Thanks for that Heads Up - I can do this one for sure and, as you noted, might help with the leak (though the coloring will be a pain, I suspect). Not to step on anyones answer or help here but the brick is not the issue and neither is the brick caulk.
I tore out a few square feet of wallboard from about mid-window (both directions) to find the point source of the leak - it appears to be from (outside view) the lower right of the frame itself (see picture of sill above). So now I have to repair rotted wood AND cut drain slots in that lower frame piece so the poorly oriented lower frame piece is compensated for. The Inbox Repair Tool is your first-aid-kit when it comes down to corruptions in your Outlook’s data storage file (pst-file). This guide helps you locate the Inbox Repair Tool for your version of Outlook, walks you through the repair process and gives recommendations what to do to when the Inbox Repair Tool fails and how to prevent pst-file corruptions from happening in the future. When you start the Inbox Repair Tool (scanpst.exe), the first thing it prompts you for is the location of the pst-file to scan. After the analysis scan has completed, it will present you with a scanning report and options for the next step. Before you continue to the actual repair process, make sure you have a backup of the pst-file. After pressing the Repair button, the actual repair process will start and go through the 8 phases again.
Note:When the repair process starts, it could appear that it will hang directly (Not Responding in Title Bar). If you can no longer access the pst-file in Outlook and the pst-file is beyond repair for the Inbox Repair Tool, you’ll have to restore it from backup or use a 3rd party recovery tool. Use their trial versions first to determine if they can recover more data from your pst-file than scanpst.exe. If your pst-file is around 1.8GB in size and Outlook refuses to open it or to write to it then it is quite likely that you are using an ANSI formatted pst-file.
While the new pst-file format (Unicode) in Outlook 2003 and later versions of Outlook no longer have this limit, the limit still exists if you are using an older pst-file. If you can still open the pst-file in Outlook, then it is recommended to copy the contents to a new Unicode pst-file.If you can no longer open the file in Outlook, then you must use the pst2gb tool to truncate the pst-file first. When you get CRC errors upon trying to copy the pst-file in Explorer or open it in Outlook, you usually have a failing hard disk which should be dealt with immediately. When you get a pst-file in use error, it means that Outlook is still running or another application which integrates itself with Outlook or depends on the outlook.exe process is still running. In this case you have either selected a file which isn’t a pst-file or a file that is too badly damaged for scanpst.exe to repair. The Lost and Found folder is created during a repair when items have been found for which it was impossible to determine their original folder or when the folder structure within the pst-file got lost completely. When such a corruption in a pst-file exists, it is highly recommended to start with a new pst-file and copy over the recovered contents to that pst-file. Outlook not closing properlyIf Outlook doesn’t close properly (the outlook.exe process continues to run after you close Outlook), then Outlook will be closed forcefully when shutting down your PC which is similar to Outlook crashing. Faulty add-ins which write corrupted dataWhile add-ins are great to extend the functionality of Outlook, they might not all work as expected. Storing your pst-file on a network sharePst-files are designed to work from a local hard drive. Below you’ll find several screenshots of errors which Outlook might display when there is an issue with your pst-file. Traditional plantation shutters have louvers that you can reposition for comfort or protection from the elements. PLUMBING VENT DEFINITIONS, TYPES - CONTENTS: Definition of plumbing vent terms, types of plumbing vents.
This article defines plumbing vent system terms, distances, and functions, and other specifications and code requirements. We define the soil stack, waste stack, wet vents and dry vents, and we summarize the distances permitted between plumbing fixtures and their vent piping. Our page top sketch of a plumbing stack vent and other sketches included below are provided courtesy of Carson Dunlop Associates.
Imagine a full soda bottle with its cap off, turned upside down: the soda does not flow nicely out of the bottle.
Now perform the same experiment, but punch a hole in the bottom of your soda bottle just before you turn it upside down. Here we show the main building vent pipe, the plumbing stack vent, connecting inside plumbing drains to a vent pipe that extends above the building roof in order to let needed air into the drains and to vent sewer gases harmlessly above the building.
Below we explain how building plumbing vent systems work and why plumbing vents are needed for drain function and plumbing drain safety. Where there is a snow-cover risk (snow can block the plumbing vent) the vent should extend 24" above the roof surface.
The soil stack pipe, as shown in Carson Dunlop's sketch, carries waste from toilets to the house trap (if one is installed) and there connects to the sewer line extending outside the building and on to a public sewer or private septic system. The soil stack pipe is normally extended outdoors above the building roof, as shown in the page top sketch. Other main building drain piping sections that slope closer to horizontal are connected to the soil stack but move waste horizontally where needed in a building.


The waste stack pipe shown in the sketch refers to any other vertical drain piping in the building that does not carry soil (sewage) from a sanitary fixture (toilet). As we discuss at DRAIN NOISES, if the horizontal distance between a plumbing fixture and the vertical vent piping is too great, the fixture may not drain properly, producing slow drainage or gurgling noises.
Poor drainage is not just an annoyance, it can be unsafe since there is also the risk that the poorly-vented plumbing fixture will lose the water from its plumbing trap, then permitting sewer gases into the building.
As we show in Carson Dunlop's sketch, the distance allowed between a plumbing fixture (actually the fixture plumbing trap) and the vertical vent piping varies between a minimum and maximum as a function of the pipe diameter.
Below our tables 1 and 2 summarize common plumbing code specifications for fixture venting and vent pipe sizes and distances that a plumbing fixture can be located (horizontally) from the vent stack.
Special routing and connections are required for proper venting of plumbing fixtures such as kitchen island or peninsula sinks or dishwashers - plumbing fixtures that are located where a direct vertical vent stack connection is not possible. Basically,larger piping diameter allows longer distances between a plumbing fixture and its vent stack.
But if a plumbing fixture is close enough (five feet or less) to the main waste stack pipe (vent), the fixture does not usually require its own plumbing vent piping, and it is considered a direct-vented plumbing fixture. Of course this rule presumes that the drain piping between the fixture trap and the waste stack is properly installed and properly sloped. In many buildings we find that the toilet is located quite close (within 5 feet) of the main building waste stack. When you flush a toilet it sends a sudden large volume of waste and wastewater into the building drain waste vent (DWV) piping. It is exactly this condition that produces the gurgling or even siphonage out and loss of water in nearby sink or tub traps when you flush a toilet in a building where the vent piping is inadequate.
A toilet that is located too far from the soil stack can be wet vented as shown in Carson Dunlop's sketch. But a wet vented fixture requires a larger drain pipe diameter in its wet portion as we show in the sketch.
Also note that wet vented fixtures (toilet, bathtub, shower, or floor drain) are permitted for bathrooms on the same floor level, not between floors. An AAV is basically a one-way valve that allows air to enter the drain to satisfy the vacuum caused by water passing down the drainage system, but that prevents sewer gases from backing up through the vent into the building. The table below gives required clearance distances to various building features and cites pertinent model plumbing codes.
Nearest window, door, opening, air intake, or ventilation shaft: distance to plumbing vent.
We interpret this rule to apply to the required separation distances between a plumbing vent and nearest chimney on the building - Ed. Vent pipes shall terminate not less than 6 inches above the roof, measured from the highest point where the vent intersects the roof.
EXCEPTION: Where a roof is used for any purpose other than weather protection, vents shall extend at least 7 feet above the roof and shall be properly supported.

I quite like the look of Windows 10, and the images that come with it, but like all previous versions of Microsoft’s operating system it’s easily customizable. Changing the look of the wallpaper and lock screen is done through Start, Settings, Personalization, and you can spice things up with your own photos. Screen contains all of the lock screen images and Wallpaper is where you’ll find all of the available wallpapers. The stores, of course, sell coloring but the amount to use is a mystery to this naive DIYer, especially when trying to match the color of this 20+year old existing mortar. I ask because I have French doors that leaked during the storm a little bit and had not before then. Nothing like with Sandy but enough to make itself known with slight wallboard joint damage. It turns out the bottom piece of wood of the frame is tilted UP, not down (as with the sill bricks), so water can pool there against the window. The foot bolt is the bottom hardware that holds the bottom of the stationary side of the two doors. At this point, nothing will happen to your pst-file yet; scanpst will do an analysis first.
If you do not have a backup already, make sure that you have the option set to make a backup before proceeding (selected by default). With a very large pst-file (larger than 4GB) and a slower hard disk, this process can sometimes take longer than half an hour.
In reality, it is not hanging but making a copy of your pst-file in the background or already has started the repair process.
Then, make a copy of your pst-file manually and restart the Repair process but this time with the Backup option disabled. If it fails repeatedly, but you can still access the file in Outlook, you can create a new pst-file in Outlook and copy over its contents.
An exception can exist if you are using an ANSI formatted pst-file and the file is around 1.8GB in size. Always try to find the root cause of your computer crashes and make frequent backups of your pst-file when you cannot directly find the cause (actually, making backups frequently is always recommended).
If corruptions continue to occur in your pst-file, it might be good to review your installed add-ins and see if you still need them or if an update is available.
Using pst-files from a network share is not supported by Microsoft and could lead to poor performance, data corruption or even data loss.If you are using Outlook 2010 and have your My Documents folder redirected to a network share, you might be using your pst-file from a network share without realizing it.


We do know that tiling is known as the most affordable solution to enhance the visual aspect of the house so you might want to consider it. We explain how plumbing vents work on buildings, why plumbing vent piping is needed, and what happens to the building drains when the vent piping is not working.
Allow building drains to flow freely by allowing air into the drain system, avoiding the vacuum and slow drainage that would otherwise occur at fixtures.
As some soda spills out, the spillage has to nearly stop to let some air into the bottle to fill the vacuum created by the soda leaving. In these notes, the plumbing stack vents and other sketches included below are provided courtesy of Carson Dunlop Associates.
Note that there are other restrictions: for a roof that is also used as an occupied space, for example, the vent has to extend at least even feet above the surface and be secured with stays. That is, dry vent piping carrying only air, sewer gas, or moisture to above the roof line is unrestricted. If a plumbing fixture is located too far from the main building vent stack, then its own drain pipe must have its own vent stack connection piping. This surge of wastewater can certainly create a vacuum problem in the waste line if the vent piping system is inadequate, blocked, or missing entirely. The drain piping for a sink (basin) or other fixture located closer to the soil stack than is the toilet can provide a pathway to let air into the horizontal waste piping used by the toilet to carry waste to the soil stack.
This diameter increase helps assure adequate air flow into the drain system in the event that the sink basin (in this example) happens to be draining at the same moment that the toilet is flushed.
Where a conventional plumbing vent system is not available or not feasible the local plumbing inspector may permit an air admittance valve to be installed.
No vent terminal shall be located directly beneath any door, window, or other ventilating opening of a building or of another building, nor shall any such vent terminal be within 10 feet horizontally of such opening unless it is at least 2 feet above the top of such opening.
The Horizon system runs on always-available cloud-based software for office computers, laptops, tablets, iPad, Android, & other smartphones. The text is intended as a reference guide to help building owners operate and maintain their home effectively. Going down into the basement and looking up at the underlayer boards of the den, I see water marks for about two feet into the room - originally these were where that upstairs wall damage was but, over the day+ of Sandy, spread both left and right. We think the wind was pushing the rain into a small opening somewhere that hasn't been a problem previously.
This analysis consists out of 8 phases of which some can take quite a bit longer to complete than others depending on the size and level of corruption of the file. Depending on the size of your pst-file and the speed of your hard disk, this can take a while.
However, if the file is smaller than 265KB then it means that the file is empty and nothing is in there to recover.
Because sewer gases may flow back up into the building drain piping from a public sewer or private septic system, and because some sewer gases are included in building waste flowing through the piping, the plumbing vent system needs to carry these gases outside, usually above the building roof, where they are disposed-of safely and without leaving unpleasant, or possibly dangerous smells and gases inside the building.
However the piping does need to be protected from nails - use nail plates to protect vent and drain piping both where where piping passes through studs, joists, or rafters.
Our sketch above shows a toilet located close to the waste stack - an installation that should work fine.
When I pressed against the frame at the rightmost grimy area I found that the area was rotted - paint was nicely covering the spot but simply pushing on it moved the paint aside and revealed the damage.

A lot of the pest control companies are notorious around here for stuffing the wepholes with steel wool. A lot of the door manufacturers will just drill a hole large enough for the foot bolt and any blowing rain will climb the threshold and come into a house this way along with any rain being blown against the T-astragal. Through this post, I might have some ideas for the bathroom tiling I collected from so many sources. Thanks to Alan Carson and Bob Dunlop, for permission for InspectAPedia to use text excerpts from The Home Reference Book & illustrations from The Illustrated Home. While it does keep pests out, it also filters out dust and soon the weephole is plugged up and water builds in the wall until it comes out at the floor line. The fix can be an axle cap of the right size available at most of the home stores and a generous amount of silicone caulk in the hole.
So, are you ready to find some inspiration through these images of tiled bathrooms I am about to show you now?First, try to utilize various tile shapes in different colors just like what Kriste Michelini, San Francisco Bay-area designer did with this latest idea of tiling. Carson Dunlop Associates' provides extensive home inspection education and report writing material. This popular designer tries to create a gap between the wet and dry areas on the bathroom by using tiles. Special Offer: For a 5% discount on any number of copies of the Home Reference eBook purchased as a single order.
Through the unique combinations of the tile, you will be able to create certain look of the infinite space, especially with uses various tile shapes in the same marble material. Hurricane force winds can surge the window drains and push water over the sill of the window causing it to appear that the window is leaking when it's actually not a defect, just the force of wind. Jessica Helgerson tells us to be a bit more carefully by the time you have to consider where the tile starts and stops for bathroom decor.The last, but not the least is about how you keep the choice of tile same between floor and wall.
If the water appears to have come from the top of the window, expect that the head flashing on the window has been compromised. Again, if this is the first time it's happened I would suspect that this will be the only time it does it.
