  1. Hi, if our house didn't have planning permission for a ground level Veranda, after it was signed off could we add one, eg 1 month later, like you can a conservatory? TIA
  2. Hi. All I can find is tile trim on 2.4 m lengths. In our bathroom this means will have to join 2 pieces. Anybody else found a solution to this ? Would we be better off not having tile trim and using colour matched silicon sealant. I don't want wood as it is a contemporary bathroom.
  3. Hi All. Our tiler wants the architrave of the door to be put on BEFORE he starts tiling. Does this sound correct or is it just because he is more used to retrofitting tiles rather than new builds ?
  4. I will be exact. 6 window boards cut to fit, out of MDF, no shaping. 2 Pre made liners screwed together, NOT fitted. This took 2 carpenters 1 day. My OH could do this on his own.
  5. Vinienz, they are internal French doors.
  6. If you had 2 carpenters working on pre made door liners (just screw the parts together). Cutting out MDF for window boards (no routing out to shape yet) what would you expect the 2 carpenters to do in one day ? If you paid by the job rather than the hour, again what would you expect to pay ? TIA
  7. Hi we have seen doors we like by LPD and XL. XL have a bespoke service, which would be great for our French Doors. OH has seen some very poor reviews on them. Has anybody any experience of either company ?
  8. Can you turn internal doors into French doors ? I have seen a LPD door I like, but in the range there are no matching French doors
  9. Any advice on how to protect the windows and doors so that the scaffolders do not cause any damage when they take this down. TIA.
  10. Hi, before I turn into Victor Meldrew, could people advise how they meet the 125l a day rule and have toilets that flush on the first go and have a luxurious bath that means all parts of the body are submerged, with no bits sticking out. We have for 25 years or more received a discount on our water use (metered), yet this is not good enough. We either fit toilets that will need 2/3 flushes - very water saving that or fit a temporary bath until it is signed off. TIA
  11. We are caught up in this too. I feel really sorry for our Inspector, he has been so helpful and hasn't been paid for a month. We are thinking about going to local government building control, but they want to start at beginning again and this will slow everything down.
  12. Thanks it says it is unavailable but who knows what they may find at the bottom of the spares box
  13. I always find that the hinges discolour if any toilet cleaner gets on them. Currently I can replace the whole toilet seat when this happens. If I buy an unusual shaped/or toilet with an ultra slim seat, can I buy replacement hinges?

  15. Is this truly self clean or do you still need to wipe everything dry with a towel ?
