What is the difference between CDX Plywood and ACX, I want to put down a 1/4\” subfloor for laminate wood, not sure what to get. The kids at the lumberyard don’t know.

The grading system goes like this. A, B, C, and D grade. If you are looking at an ACX plywood you will see a perfect A side with an imperfect C side, and the X stands for eXterior glue. If you are putting down a floating wood floor I would use a minimum of a BCX, and install the B side up. ACX is used for Cabinet construction and CDX is used for Roofing underlayment usually. Hope this helps,

I have had several waterproofing companies look at my basementwater situation and they each have a different opinion. What companies doyou recommend and what is the best drainage system for a basement – thanks

I have looked at a lot of systems, I think the best are the ones installed by Mid American Basements and Todd’s Mudjacking. I believe Todd use to work for Mid American. But I would recommend both companies, competitive price and great work.
 
Thanks for the question,

Hello, I have recently moved to the area and my wife and I arelooking at homes to purchase. We have found a nice early 1900 Victorian home that we really like, but in the disclosure agreement it says the basement leaks during rains. When we looked at the house the basement walls are red brick and some areas are bulging and some areas the bricks are chipping and flaking away. Also the mortar looks like it is worn pretty badly. I could see this only in some spots because most of the basement walls were layered with a layer of concrete. From what I read this is common in older homes with this type of basement walls. We don\’t want to commit on the house if it is going to cost us a fortune to repair or replace. Have any advice?

Jason, welcome to the Q.C. A couple of issues I have with the older Victorian homes in the area are there are some up keep with them. One is you can rarely make them more  maintenance free. What I mean by that is first ask if the house is in a Historic District. You must be prepared to follow strict guide lines that go with the neighborhood. For example you can’t upgrade your windows to more energy efficient windows you have to keep them the same if one breaks. If you want vinyl siding? You can’t do it, it has to be painted. If the house is not in a historic district you mentioned foundation issues. That should send a red flag, no issue with a foundation is common and acceptable. When you have constant water flow the problem will only get worse. Granted some things can be done to redirect the water and stop the foundation from further deterioration, but if the problem is too far gone the house will need to be jacked up and re-built. If you are getting a great deal on the house I would consider it, if you need any help with quotes let me know.
