    Jamb Saw

    Me also and today all I can say it undercutting just makes more headaches for the homeowner having to replace the trim. If it was antique trim in my house that was under cut would be grounds for killing.

    Steam cleaning

I even have my own machine which hasn't been used in maybe 5 or 6 years as all my carpet is new and there is...

    Do you think it wrinkled before the customer got home

    Squeaky Plywood Subfloor

    Instead of using a wire like high said I drilled a 1/4" hole and put a flashlight over it. Then looked for the light Kind of like bugs do. Also the screws can be done from the top just by taking of the trim and cutting a small hole in the drywall and then screw the plate that way. But either way...

    Squeaky Plywood Subfloor

    How far from a wall is it? Sometimes a squeak will be where a nail on the wall plate is rubbing when the floor moves.

    Shot a few nails across the room, sometimes stuck a few in the wall. There were times we heard things falling in the basements of these old farm houses from the vibration from the nailing.
