    Define Combustible

    While servicing a furnace, I found this:



    This is the first time I've actually seen single wall touching the drywall. The draft hood was all smashed up too. More wrong than right here.

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    Shark bites and flex...thank you home depot.
    Drywall is considered combustible.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    I know but someone seemed to think otherwise, not entirely incorrectly. That water heater is 10 years old and the drywall showed no signs of heat damage.

    The new owner was very accepting of the fact that it couldn't be left like that despite ten issue free years. We moved the heater to gain height and replaced the 3" single wall with 4" b vent, which now has about 2" of clearance to the drywall.
