    Quartz/Granite Worktop Question

    Excellent. Thanks for that. A quick calculation from their very rough prices still comes out over half the price I’ve been getting quotes from. I’ve got 10 meters of worktop and a double width 2m for breakfast bar area.

    Quartz/Granite Worktop Question

    Thanks. Looking for a worktop place that will supply and fit. These guys look too cheap? Did this include any cuts for sinks?

    Nice work. The old kitchen used as the new utility seems like a lot of wasted space?

    Newly plastered walls - Undercoat?

    Any old cheap emulsion paint will do, mix up all you old emulsion paints together, water it down 50/50 and slap it on. Great way of getting rid of old paint! Be aware though paints do go off and stink if left on the self too long.

    Replacing a shower - Cabin or not?

    No need for, if built properly a shower shouldn't leak. Use aquapanel, personally I tank every shower area. Use a shower tray with upstands. No complaints yet.

    New table saw keeps tripping the MCB

    Ah yes, a short to earth can still trip the MCB, could be an intermittent thing. A 500v insulation test can normally pick this up.

    New table saw keeps tripping the MCB

    There could potentially be a leak to earth, this can also cause the RCD to trip. Unlikely on a new bit of kit but can't rule it out. Unfortunately you will need an insulation/megger or PAT tester to test this out. Test live/neutral to earth. If it's a real bad short then you may pick continuity...

    First Home - Renovation Project

    Nice work, when levelling might have been an idea to use a p r i c k roller. This will help even out the areas and remove trapped air bubbles.

    Any roofers / insulation guys out there?

    It's the very cold weather we are getting plus all the extra insulation, the air is stagnant up there. Lap vents will help, cheap too.

    PIR lighting / garage power

    Fairly straightforward for any electrician worth his salt. If the new lights are LED they won't draw much power at all and all those lights can come off your light circuit in the garage.

    How to repair broken render

    You can see there is cracks all over that. Chip off the loose bits. Slap some PVA mixed wi§th water before troweling. Use two coats one scratch, let that dry then scratch it the top smooth coat.

    HG mould remover

    Agreed one of the better cleaners. Still bleach content. Great for cleaning up black mound from silicon. Or another trick, soak some tissue or bog roll in bleach and spread on the affected area. Leave overnight, careful if you got little kids.n by the morning the silicon will be as new. It...

    Loft insulation over electric cables

    If clipped should be fine for lighting circuit. Thing you need to worry about in lofts is polystyrene laying over the cable. Don't do this the two do not mix well! You will be surprised how many times I see this going into people's lofts...
