Ask Tim



If you can't find a video, then use the SEARCH ENGINE box you see at the bottom of this page.

Type in a short phrase that best describes your problem. Here are some examples of search phrases:

  • clean tile grout
  • repair concrete crack
  • drywall repair
  • install tile
  • roof leak
  • AC does not work
  • best deck cleaner

Once the search results come back, CLICK EVERY one of the results and scan the pages.

If, after doing all of the above you still have a question, understand it can be a while before I get back to you. I can only afford to spend 15 minutes a day on this free one-on-one service.

Because of the VOLUME of incoming Ask Tim questions, most answers are just a Yes / No or no more than two sentences. I'm sure you understand why it has to be that way.

If you have a COMPLEX situation and want to talk on the phone with me, I offer that service. CLICK HERE to schedule a phone consult.

To INCREASE your chances of getting a FAST answer, send in a great photo with your question.

When I open my Inbox, I LOOK FOR EMAILS that have ATTACHMENTS.

I answer those questions FIRST.

Here's an example of why I need photos. Tell me if you clearly understand what Kevin wrote to me. He did not send a photo:

"Just installed a new Washer/dryer plumbing/drain system. I ran the vent off the vertical drain trunk just before the hard trap in the wall. Will it be ok to have the line vented before the hard trap?"

Take the time to send a GREAT photo, and magic may happen.


If you have an IMMEDIATE need for help or an EMERGENCY at your home, you can have me call you on the phone or we can do a video call using Skype or Google Hangouts. To order that service, CLICK HERE.
