    Real World SIPs Experiences

    I have built a single storey 135m2 extension built using Kingspan Tek Sips It's allowed me to have 4m vaulted ceiling, and loftspace above that's warm and sealed, some interesting angles too It was purchased through THCL, who subcontract the work of erection of the kit out The team of 4 that arrived were incredibly diligent and hardworking, and specialised in this work, so the erection of if went pretty smoothly panels that were delivered onsite were perfect and did not need tweaking, which cannot be said for some of the supporting timber that was supplied wrongly The erection were not happy with the slab that was laid in terms of flatness, and 1 part being slightly askew, but worked around it no problems battening out for plasterboard etc Its nice and toasty happy to answer any specific questions

    how to patch up a 2cm line of plaster?

    are you saying I need to chip off the skimmed plaster in order for tape to adhere to it?
  6. Hi there, I've had to alter the size of my door openings, lowering the head by 11cm, which for some reason were left too big by panel company and I never though to check before everything was boarded and skimmed, I've done this utilising cls timber, and faced the timber with plasterboard so that its just shy of level with current skimmed walls. so this has left me with a problem. my architraves are 9cm, which leaves 2cm of bare plasterboard above (between architrave and skimmed wall) and unfortunately I'll have to do this for every door What is the easiest method of patching this up myself - without getting plasterer in. the walls are unpainted, but are skimmed. is there ready made plaster/product that I can use to fill and sand? I'm worried about it cracking as doors will be opened and closed etc - are there any meshes/ alternatives to add in to stop that from happening? any advice greatly appreciated Scott

    Air admittance valve / soil vent pipe

    sorry to hijack thread, but I guess its relevant question If you are converting a room downstairs to a bathroom of an existing 2 storey property, can you use an aav, given there is another bathroom on the 1st floor above (with vent through the roof? or with it have to have its own soil vent pipe through the roof? it would be joining the existing foul drains outside the property
  9. Has anyone got a source for a reasonable priced feed and expansion tank, either stainless or copper 30-40 litres? I am not liking the prices I am currently seeing.
  10. Hi Nick Do you have any comment on the system diagram above, I appreciate your expertise in these type matters,
  11. Alex Did you install the laddomat etc yourself?
  12. I've not found them overly helpful their response was We don't sell direct so you will have to purchase the product through a Plumbing Merchant. We deal with most of the main ones all over the country. In terms of price, you are looking at €708.00 (Nett) for the 30Kw Heat Genie with 1.3 m probe or €765.00 (Nett) for the 30Kw Heat Genie with 4m probe. These prices are excluding V.A.T. and are only a guideline for you.
  13. Thanks Alex good link - laddomat cheaper than I have found, and a decent priced flue thermostat, would save me a bob or two depending on shipping cost
  14. well my issue with the panels, all in one solutions is they seemed to be priced to try and take the hassle away the heat Genie comes in at over £700 + some extraneous items, as does the nrg link from ireland the laddomat set up above can be achieved for circa £500, but with a little hassle. I'm currently looking at how to power the pump in the event of power failure, even if just for an hour to allow fire to die down.
  15. bought direct from Ireland?
