  1. Hi Dave, Would i need to lay a damp proof membrane as I have a void below ground floor? Also I would like to lay the floor length wise(window to window) so it will be in the same direction as joists. Otherwise the room will look small
  2. Hi Guys, Would anyone be able to advise what's the best way to tackle laying new floor on ground floor in Victorian house? I have suspended joist on ground floor, debating whether to install under floor heating(wet), I was thinking of removing the original floor planks, installing 100mm insulation between joist recessed 25mm. Then wet underfloor heating, cover it with 18mm moisture resistant chipboard, covered with 3mm insulation with damp proof member and 14mm engineered floor. The only issue I see here is the floating the floor, which I think will move, upstairs I have used a secret screw fixings and its solid, but downstairs I am cautious that I will puncture one of the water pipes for underfloor heating. Is there any other way of doing this? Luke
  3. Hi guys, It might be age the house is victorian and the difference in level is on the first floor, level difference is on 7 joist with the worst case scenario in the middle being 14mm. Looking at how they are positioned the middle(where the drop is the most visible) one seems to be twisted a little bit this may cause the drop. Is sliding in plastic packers under the floor boards a good option?
  4. hi there, Could someone please advise how to level up a floor where joists are slightly lower on one end of the room(around 5 joists)? We have a new engineered floor that we want to lay buy the it will look terrible when the floor is uneven. Can I pack every floor boards where is fixed to joist or is it better to fix a sister joist to the side and raise the level that way? #Luke
  5. Thank you guys for all the help. The channel and glass is now installed. What clear silicone would you recommend for bead around shower tray, I kind of like the matt clear silicone but don't know the product name.
  6. Thanks for help. On the bottom I need to bed the glass onto the CT1 as well.As the glass sit direcly on the top of the tray. Should I seal the bottom of the glass pane on both sides inside and outside or nly outside? -Luke
  7. Thanks guys for help. One more thing, should i put a line of silicone on the bottom of the channel where it touches the wall and on the external part as well?(I would leave inside of the u channel without the sealand for the water to escape.Glass is sitting directly on the top of the tray so I am assuming this needs to be sealed externally only. -Luke
  8. Hello There, Could someone provide me with advice how to properly install a glass within wall channel? I had an installer that has done this before but he has done completely terrible job, that I had to purchase a new set of channels as he covered everything in silicone and ripped apart the knock on seal. So I removed everything and want to do the job properly. I have instruction from manufacturer but I am not sure where the gasket goes, looks to me that it should be installed on the external side of the tray. But do I seal internal side with sealant? Thank you in advance. -Luke
