As the skill of the craftsman goes up the time may go down but the price per hour will most likely rise.

And to stop the wind for coming in you will want to replace the whole thing. Buying a custom piece to fit your sash may actually be mor expensive than replacing as a whole.
The NFRC rates just about every model of window. A home from the 70s is most likely to have standard size window so your choices should be plentiful.

Are you considering changing or upgrading your current attic?
Are you changing it to living space?
Are you building new?
May times you need to do a cost benefit analysis and not knowing the starting point makes the calculation impossible.
Climbing on the roof with Ice and Snow??? You should have an ambulance on stand by and be recording for Americas Funniest Videos.
As long as you have a switch.
Yes they work but they don’t tend to last as long as the roof.
So yest they use energy. And depending on the size of your roof and how many strips it could be significant.
However you only use them occasionally. this year not being normal you may have used them more.
so not a large rise in energy cost.
I have seen people throw “ice melt” chemicals up there

See above on contacting the company.
Many people who used to use this product now use Rain-X on the glass doors,windows and mirrors. It is amazing how this stuff repels the build up along with the water build up and it keeps your mirrors from fogging up in the bathroom after a hot shower.
It works in your house just like waxing your car does versus the outside elements. It is available at automotive stores and mass merchants.

I am guessing you have an older home as most newer homes in florida are built on a slab.
Things you want to insure you don’t do in any climate but especially in humid ones like florida is to trap moisture.
Floors and ceilings are generally insulated without vapor barriers. (Walls and roofs have them)
You can find similar materials for both blown in and rolls and their are many options for both.

Works well on many fabrics.
But be sure to test it on an inconspicuous spot before using it on the center of one of your cushions. As it has a tendancy to remove some dye from many natural fabrics.

If so this is probably under warranty.
If it is not a quick fix with a little Allen wrench I would contact the Moen Customer Care line. From their site:
Call: 1-800-Buy-Moen (1-800-289-6636)
8:00 am to 8:00 pm EST Monday thru Friday
9:00 am to 5:30 pm EST Saturday
Closed on Sundays and all nationally observed holidays
From the reviews on their own site it appears that the loose handle has been an issue but they have sent replacements.
Let us know the company’s response so we can let the world know.

You don’t want to drill but do you mind damaging the wall?
Something that will bind to drywall or stick to tile may require a very strong adhesive or epoxy in order to hold the constant weight of a wet towel.

With so few posts lately. We need to maintain a sense of humor until we build our traffic back up.

Are you looking for light?
If I were buying one for my wife for Christmas (If you’re reading, I am not) I would look into something that is gas powered but electric start as well as something that is self propelled. Depending on the size of the walk and drive I would then get as small as possible.
Then we will send out an email to all of the users of the forum.
Please let me know if you encounter issues, bugs. General malaise.
