NORTON & SON Building Supples ALGONA, IOWA Mill Work Roofing Paints Question* and Answers Q. In the method of brlcklayln affected by the season In which th work is done. A. Good brickwork can be pro duced in winter, but certain pre caution* are necessary In freezing temperatures. The work should b undertaken only when the temp eruture Is rising. The bricks should be thoroughly dry and kept pro tected by a tarpaulin or othei weatherproof material to preven accumulation of Ice on the bricks until ready for use. When ready to Install, the brick as well as the sand should be heated to remove 'rost, Ice nnd excessive moisture. Miter should also be heated. All Inished work should be protected 'or a period of 4 hours or more >y means of enclosures, tarpaulin, or other protective methods. Q. Is there any standard thlck- s* for concrete sidewalks? If o. what is it? A. Thickness of sidewalks will ary somewhat with subgrade con- ition.i. All sidewalks, however. hould be laid on a leveled bed of grnvel. cinders, or other approved material at least four inches in thickness. In general, the following dimensions will be found more l«>r less standard: For business districts—5 inches. For driveway crossings where heavy vehicles may be used— 6 inches. Q. Should copper and brass piping be painted? A. The only reason to paint them Is to produce a desired decorative effect. Copper and br?ss are corrosion-resisting materials, and do not need paint as a protective coating. Q. Is it true that water-softener equipment will aid the working of a hot-water heating system? A. Where the water supply is definitely "hard", the installation of water-softening equipment will not only aid the working of the water system but will oftentimes pay for itself In the »avin£ on piping and equipment. "Hard" water contains varying amounts of mineral content* which have a clogging and corrosive action on plumbing lines, heating planU and cooking utensils In addition, difficulty is experienced in laundering and washing of all types, because it is hard to make suds with such water. Water-softening equipment, by filtration and chemical action, neutralizes or deposits out the mineral content, leaving the water *oft for washing and reducing clogging or corrosion in plumbing and betting equipment to a minimum.
