Questions that are not a good fit for this site may be voted closed by experienced community members. Closed questions cannot be answered, but are eligible for improvement (and eventual re-opening) through editing, voting, and commenting. See How to Ask for guidance on editing your question to improve it.

 
Common reasons a question may be closed include:
 
Exact duplicate
This question covers exactly the same content as earlier questions on this topic; its answers may be merged with another identical question.
 
Off topic
Questions on Answers are expected to relate to constructions, engineering and property topics within the scope defined in the FAQ. Consider edting the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about closed questions here.
 
Not constructive
As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, see the FAQ for guidance.
 
Not a real question
It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
 
Too localized
This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
 
Users with a high level of reputation points can cast close votes. When a question reaches a give level of close votes, it is marked as closed, and will no longer accept answers.
