Ta-Da. There’s a lot of questions have been asked over a period of time.
What kind of nails I use for the j-channel on the bottom of skirting? This would be too big. Don’t need an 82 cent nail or a ninety-two cent nail. I mean, you could do it, but it’s just not worthwhile.
This is $0.28. It’s OK. And this is $0.28. It’s got ribs of it. That’s pretty close. But we don’t need those ribs, no stinking ribs. $0.68. It’s way too big. So we’re going to go with something like these timber galvanized six inch in this case, it’s for 10 pounds is $30.
That’s a lot of money. But here we go. That’s what we’ll do. Six inches long and we’ll see if we can’t tie things to the ground.
This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts We Americans see you next time.
