Question: What is the best adhesive for commercial vinyl tiles in a wet area like a bathroom?

Advertisment:

I used water based adhesive designed for CVT, but several of the tiles where there is often wetness from wet feet, etc. have come loose and there is no sign of adhesive at all underneath. I know that the old-fashioned solvent based mastic would not fail like this, but that mastic is now no longer easily available.
So what is the way to cement CVT which will be water proof? The tiles were laid two years ago so there was plenty of time to dry.

Question: Should I wait to get curtains?

I need to get my walls wallpapered as well as having a curtain rail and curtains put up in a couple of my rooms. It’d be much cheaper to get the curtain rail and curtains first. But will having this done first make wallpapering and painting under and around the curtain pole significantly harder to the point I should get curtains after the wallpapering and painting is done?
Thanks in advance.

Question: What will happen if spread out Fescue seed with warm season grass seed…like Zoysia seed in a warm zone in the Fall?

I was thinking of putting down warm season grass seed for the warmer months and fescue for the cooler months this fall at the same time….since will be using a power rake to break the ground up. is it better to not do that? as will the warm season grass seed prevent the fescue seed from germinating as good during fall? I just thought it would be good to add warm season grass seed with the fescue for May- Sep. period while having the ground broken up for the fescue seed.

Question: If plan to replant fescue in a sunny lawn every fall….and then let warm season grass take over in summer..can you seed Bermuda with fescue?

have a very sunny lawn…and love the look of the darker green “Turf fescue” instead of the cheaper (to me at least?) looking Kentucky 31 “field fescue” as it is lighter in color and just doesn’t look as nice as the nice dark green turf fescue..like Lesco has…blue grass I think is mixed in there too.

but I want to reseed every fall..and have this look in the lawn during the cooler season and spring…but then have warm season grass in the hot periods…BUT I don’t really have any warm season grass as of now..have mostly a Kentucky 31 fescue SOD lawn…yes, the builder put this down..and it is doing okay,,but starting to die off a bit now in 100 F degree heat.

Question: Is Zoysia a more beautiful warm season grass than Bermuda? why think so? & can spread this out in fall with cool season grass seed?

I have currently a Kentucky 31 Tall Fescue sodded lawn…and it has held up okay..actually it was A BEAST to cut in the spring…but now it is getting 100 degrees F ..it is wimping out and starting to brown in areas. BUT I don’t really like the light color green of the Kentucky 31 Fescue sod.. I want a more darker color “Turf Fescue” like Lesco sells..their “Transitional blend” for example that contains Blue grass too. What I want to do is sow both the warm season grass seed with the cool season Turf Fescue seed and that way I can have the warm season seed germinate and grow when gets warm and have the Fescue do its beautiful work in the cooler months. OR should I sow the warm season seed in May after the cool season grass is dying off a bit? why can explain?

BTW, I HAVE A VERY SUNNY LAWN ..AND IT GETS HOT DOWN SOUTH WHERE I AM IN TENNESEE! but the warm season grass seed is not going to germinate is it till late spring of the next year?

Question: Which is my gas valve and which is my water valve/ stopcock?

Which of these in the pic is which?

The valve on the right says: Oventrop. Normally I would assume the one on the right is the gas. But there’s a label on the door that suggests it’s actually for the water. The one on the right is actually a handle – like a typical gas handle. If you look at the white patch on the pipe – it’s directly under that. Answer to Mermeliz.

There are 2 labels on the door. Left one says “gas” and the right one says “water” but there’s no explicit indication that their position on the door really means anything. Just moved in so checking everything!

(and they come up at different times?) or what should I do? plant them at different times? or really you shouldn’t have to “plant” warm season grass should u? just go over the lawn with a spreader full of Bermuda seed or Zoysia seed in May? or how soon? why cant just put them in the spreader together in the Fall and let them do their thing when they do it? will the warm season grass seed prevent the cooler season grass seed from doing its best? can explain?
