    Stone Bath...

    Doesn't seem like the right subsection for this, but then again, it doesn't fit in any of them - and it was a plumbing job to install, so.... I bought and installed a stone resin bath in my attic room a couple of years ago. A massive crack has appeared in the inside -- it appears to be a...

    Best way to fill gap between skirting board and wall..

    I'm at the stage where I think at least half of my house is built with decorators caulk. Would recommend the Brewers premium on over others.

    Freezing Condensate.

    Thanks mate. I wasn't sold on the idea myself, hence the post... Didn't fancy all that mucking about either, tbh. It's already 32mm, but it has a long, horizontal section, which I don't imagine helps. It is freakishly cold out there.

    Ummm balls :(

    I also had this problem, or something similar. It didn't come as a surprise, I wasn't left with any options. Moving the hatch would have been a massive faff. I simply broke the plastic parts of that cover the 'hinge' part. This mean that I could push the hatch up and remove it entirely when I...

    Freezing Condensate.

    Hello all. I have an external condensate that freezes daily at the moment. I have had a look at installing condensate trace heating, but will pipe insulation work just as well? Any advice/methods on stopping the thing freezing, I would appreciate. Thanks. Lenny.

    Good call! I'll be getting onboard with that.

    Drilled through a water pipe

    I caught a pipe last year. Replacing floorboards - helpfully, someone had painted the floorboards to show the position of the pipework underneath. Unhelpfully, when a new heating system was added, the installer didn't carry on the trend. I cursed myself for not checking. Although I did find...

    Is Farrow & Ball Wall primer meant to be THIS thick?

    Johnston's match F&B colours - get it from Brewer's. F&B Paint isn't that bad, and the colours are fantastic - but my lord, it's expensive. Johnstone's is a fraction of the price and the paint is much easier to apply - the colour variance is negligible.

    Is Farrow & Ball Wall primer meant to be THIS thick?

    Jesus, that's cottage cheese. No. It's not supposed to look like that. What on earth happened there?

    I don't. Point taken.

    Make sure you've allowed it to fully cure first, mind.

    Painting kitchen units (ed.)

    There's a number of things that could have caused this. If the paint itself is well adhered after the full curing time (do a scratch test) then I'd test one door. Take it off, clean and degrease, sand, clean, and apply another coat. Like I said, I always lay it off with a brush after rolling...
