Re: Do You See What I Do?


Didn't use an "energy" heel truss, only 2-3" of insulation at the top plate to air chute,

AND the nail plates short circuit the heat transfer, (R value goes toward Zero).

Garage wasn't heated 24/7 during the winters, cold and WET vehicles stored in garage, "rained out" on cold spots that were below the dew point of the garage air....

1. Quit using paper faced drywall products in high moisture areas.....
2. install a crown mold????
3. dehumidifier= constant $$.

I think we should all tell him it's mold, he could make some money on the remediation markup then the balance of the job. As it is now, just a few cents of profit on a clean and repaint.

Not likely mold, that's a typical dirt pattern.

Re: Do You See What I Do?


Looks like dirt, dust, mildew, lint, mold, light moisture, or even some weird art project.

Glad I could help.

I thought the answer was “no receptacles along the wall”

Garage, only one was required at the time of this build.

Recent codes require one receptacles at each parking space.

That's what I would guess too. It gets colder there because of the heat transfer, then it gets a small amount of moisture there from condensation. If there is any dirt in the air it will stick there. Do that 1000 times and then the dirt will accumulate there at every stud.
