    Glue for guttering

    I have 4 very short length of guttering about a foot long which are attached at right angles to two main lengths of guttering at each end so that the rain water fall down the tiled roof rather than down a wall.

    leak in grp roofing

    he was completely puzzled at first but will try and convince Topseal that some of the batch they supplied him with failed. He is going to refelt some of the adjoining felt from a pitch roof where he thinks the problem originated but as a separate job and we will try and claim that off our...

    Bespoke solid oak vs German factory made kitchen cabinets

    thinking about it and as you already pointed out yourself , MFC cabinets probably make more sense as they are easier to clean, do not scratch and do not warp. I noticed that somer bespoke manufacturers such as The Wood Works use them as well but frame them and attach the doors with butt...

    Bespoke solid oak vs German factory made kitchen cabinets
