Quick fix a stripped screw in a doorjam

This tips was from a home  contractor in Detroit.

Super easy fix for fixing a stripped out screw in a door jamb.

Take out the screw that isn’t tightening enough.  Measure the screw and either get a couple of tooth picks or a golf tee.  Cut either of them to the length of the screw and insert back into the hole.  If you are using tooth picks you will want to use enough to fill the hole.

Once the hole is filled you are ready to put the screw back in.  

I love these super easy fixes and thanks for our fan in Detroit for submitting this tip.

Fastening To Masonry – Tips from Auburn WA remodeling Contractors

Brought to you by an Auburn WA remodeling contractor

To secure most items to a concrete, brick, or cinder-block wall, you will need todrill a hole and insert a wall fasteners.  Use lead anchors for most loads and expansions shields for heavy ones.  Use plastic anchors and fiber plugs for very light items.
To drill a hole in masonay, use a carbide tipped bit on an electric or high powered drill, preferably a variable speed model that will let you drill at a low speed.  As you drill, move the in and out rather than pushing hard.  If the drill begins to stall back out a little bit or you could end up burning out the motor.  If you drill lacks the power to drive a big bit into solid concrete or brick, try drilling a small hole first, then a larger one.

On a cindar block or a hollow tile wall, another good fastner is toggle bolt.  Drill a hole for it with a carbide tip.  Then install the fastner as you would on a hallow wall.  Drill a test hole first to make sure the blocks hollow interior has enough space to accommodate the bolds wings.

You can attach boards that will carry light loads with either cut nails or masonary nails.  Because these nails tend to split wood, first drill a hole in the board for each nail.  Make it slightly smaller than the widest part of the nail.  If a wall is very hard, drill holes for the nails in the wall too.  Cut nails and masonory nails can chip a claw hammer, causing flying metal particles.  Always, drive them in with a ball peen hammer or slight sledgehammer.  If a fastner will carry a heavy load, don’t install it in mortar between masonary blocks.  Under stress, the mortar is likely to crumble, and fastners will pull out.
