Decoding shop talk: Here's what your contractor is actually saying
from Bob Vila
Do you sometimes feel like you and your contractor are speaking different languages? If so, it's not your imagination: The average homeowner may not be familiar with some of the words, terms, and abbreviations commonly used by contractors. To ensure that you and your contractor are on the same page, it's a good idea to bone up on typical remodeling and construction terminology before you start on a major home renovation project.
