      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Siding question

Recommended Posts

Is it code? I am having it done and was just wondering if I should expect new wrap. My point exactly. What good is it if it is full of holes. Thanks

If I'm not mistaken, this is an insurance claim. They pay in a specific line item on your adjuster's papers to replace the house wrap. If they are paying for it, I would have it done.

If not, I would leave it up to the inspector on what they want. I am pretty sure they would say to replace it. This doesn't necessarily mean the old stuff is torn off, but new wrap should be put on.

Is it code? Yes, house wrap is code and it must be taped on vertical laps, so that would make me think it should not have any holes in it.

On our jobs, we add a price for new house wrap and you bet we put it on.

If you do a remodel,upgrade, code is to be brought up to current specs.However the condition of the barrior that is there and code, is up to the local inspecter If its damaged,Ask.Because code is how that inspecter inturprets it.My guess is replacement seeing taped laps are normally done to prevent moisture transfer and its not completely sealed with holes.But its up to the inspecter.

Here's a trick I saw a sider use. When removing the old siding, he drew a line at the top of each row. All pieces that were cut were marked and later used as a pattern for the new pieces. This worked especially well for shakes and peakes. Note: by doing this they were able to place the new nails directly in the old holes thus no new holes in the wrap.

Thanks, I will have to look at the insurance claim to make sure. The old wrap on my garage isn't even taped on the vertical seams. Sure hope they do the wrap.
