I heard you on your Sat morn. show , say that decks should not have sealer applied during hot summer weather with temps over 75 degrees. Today, on the hotest day of the summer when schools are closing earlier because of the extreme heat ,95+ ,Dech Tech came sometime during the 2 hours I left home, and applied the sealcoat on my deck. Aren't they one of your sponsers? Didn't you recently have the ceo of Dech Tech on your morning show? If you can't explain this , you have lost your credibility. I tried to call the company to find out how long before I can walk on it ,and have not had an answer.

Hey Lou, I have a home built in the 40's and somewhere along the line it received aluminum siding. I prefer aluminum siding to to vinyl. The problem I have is that some wind did some damage to it. Is there a way to get the siding replaced? I have looked all over online for any place that may still sell this type of siding but all I see is vinyl and newer technologies for siding like the newer cement based stuff. Does anyone still make aluminum siding for homes or does anyone custom make pcs?

Hi Lou.  I live in a ranch on a crawlspace about 30 yards from train tracks and over the last 20 years of living here I have had to repair cracks in my foundation, walls and concrete driveway, among other things like popped nails.  No matter what I do they keep returning.  Of course I am assuming it is because when the trains pass, we experience vibrations in the house.  Is there anything on the market, or some techniques that builders in California may use in earthquake areas, can be used to stablize the drywall etc and maybe allow the vibrations but stop the cracks? I have also been told to contact the train tracks owner as this is a sign of poorly maintained tracks. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
