  1. Hi, I have a small rear porch, where the mortar holding the hip tiles has failed. I have been looking at potentially using a dry hip system instead of replacing the mortar. Although I am not wedded to this idea if its not sensible. My question is how would you deal with the tiles at the top where the hips meets the wall ? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Hello Folks, What is everyone's preference when it comes to render? It seems the options we are narrowed down to is wet dash which is our preference, then we have dry dash and finally textured (smooth?) We like the look of wet dash as it seems a fool proof application which cant go wrong and is quite common here in Scotland. Our only worry being that one mans wet dash seems to be different to another, one house is never the same. I assume you can use different size chips in with the mix? I just worry we ask for wet dash and get a horrible lumpy texture like that you see on old fishing cottages for example! Dry dash has put us off slightly simply due to the fact the stones falling off the wall! Still looks nice when new. Textured looks very nice however can this be achieved without the need for special systems such as k-rend etc? This inevitably brings us to 'K-Rend', they seem to boast there renders are far superior to that of the normal mortar renders. My builder opposes this and states its money wasted which could be spent elsewhere. I somewhat agree with this, does the extra cost really benefit us in the real world? It would seem there are plenty of houses which have had the 'old fashioned' methods applied and they are doing just fine... Any thoughts or photos of examples would be great!
  3. We have ikea bathroom cabinets to mount on our bathroom porcelain tiles. They are Godmorgon 40x14x96 and weigh 12kg each. I remember that the tiles being a nightmare to drill into to mount a towel rail, I had to buy some diamond drill bits and even then it took ages to drill into them and I was worried I might break the tile, they are large 60x45cm tiles. So wondering if I could mount the tiles using some 3M VHB tape like this one here Ikea had the tape on these hooks we used in the bathroom and I swear I could used them as rock climbing holds. So I'm thinking of getting a roll of tape and sticking it to wall side of the four sides of the cabinet, letting that cure for a day and then sticking it to the wall. Has anyone used that tape for doing something like this and did it work?
