  1. Recently got this from house of canopies as there isn't much room above the door for a substantial structure. We just wanted something to keep the elements out when entering/leaving the house. Seems ok
  2. Each plank overlaps so there's an angle
  3. I'm using hardie plank and making discs seems a bit of a faff. I'm surprised hardie don't make some light fixings to deal with the angles
  4. Because cladding isn't flat like a wall?
  5. Struggling to find some up & down lights that can be adjusted so the angle of the light can be changed. What do people with cladding do as the lights fixed to the cladding wont be straight and instead will be at an angle
  6. Thanks for the ideas. I've found some low iron glass suppliers on ebay and will give it a try. Don't know why Howdens didn't just use it as standard as who wants a green lit cabinet?!
  7. Hello, wondering if the forum wisdom can think of a simple (cheap) fix for making the cabinet glass shelves look less green and more natural. I presume the glass has a tint of green in it but without changing the glass is there a way of covering the edge with something so when the light is shone on it it has more of a natural light? Someone has mentioned putting a shower screen seal on the back edge which I am yet to try. Thanks for any ideas
  8. I'm a bit tight on time and wondering what the minimum time a new UFH system should run for before any floor coverings go down? Specifically LVT and porcelain tile. Floor is extra strength liquid screed mostly 40mm but some areas 50mm. Screed went down end of September. Thanks
  9. Hi, my installer wants me to put down a concrete base for the ASHP. I'd rather it goes on the paving slabs that will form the paths and patio but he seems reluctant. Do you guys all have your ASHP's on a concrete base?
  10. Yes they finished the job and yes it filled a skip. Such a waste really, must be £500 worth at least plus the environmental impact. I told them to chuck a load of the off cuts behind the dwarf walls which they did and still all this waste. No wonder they ran out of insulation! The contract doesn't mention waste. As far as I'm concerned this is all his property so he can come and remove it if he wants paying. Will see how this goes down...
  11. My insulators let me down recently. They ran out of insulation and this resulted in me having to postpone plasterers. I wasn't that bothered but I didn't get an apology from the boss which I thought was a bit poor. He's now emailed me his invoice for several thousand £'s and he's left behind one hell of a mess. I spent the day loading off cuts of Kingspan and it has filled a skip. If someone supplies and fits then surely all of this leftover crap belongs to him? I'm debating whether to email him and tell him I'll pay him after he's collected his materials (off cuts) or at least knock off £200 for the skip. What do you think?
  12. Can anyone who's installed one of these shed any light on the following? The instructions say: So I have a tile air vent meaning I need to vent the tank independently. I guess this just means connecting a drainage pipe and vent to the vent hole on the tank? Does the blower hose connect through the same vent hole on the tank? Are building control ok not to have any admittance valves/durgos? When they say they don't want tile vents to be the sole drainage ventilation facility what exactly do they want?
  13. I don't want to have a door between the kitchen and a hall way, I just want a walk through. I recall mentioning this to a BC officer a while back and he said technically you don't need to have any internal doors on any rooms at all. Or maybe he said only bathrooms are mandated to have a door, I can't recall exactly. Just wondered if anyone knows the rules as my architect disagrees and I can't get hold of building control until Monday. Thanks
  14. I've just been quoted the following today from a recommended tiler: "£40m2 ceramic and porcelain. £50m2 natural stone. That includes adhesive and grout. Extras would be laying tiling board to tongue and groove floors. Laying crack suppression membrane to ground floor. Trims to edge of wall tiles. "
