  • Thanks for responding noseall. As I have a slab foundation and not brickwork to remove how would be best filling the cavity without risk of damp as using a closer would be difficult as I have no lips of brick to rest this on and that slab is absolutely solid?

    Line it with insulation and DPM then fill with concrete.

    Use 40mm galvanized or stainless clouts.
    Hi noseall

    Sorry to trouble you I have seen your posts regarding cavities below doors. Do I need to line the cavity with Dpm or when you say to take inner course of bricks out is this so that you would lie the Dpm over the removed bricks (in my case slab) and over the cavity to get a stronger concrete bridge? Sorry this is all new to my I'm more visual.

    Thank you in advance

    Basically yes. Most of my posts are regarding the finishing detail based upon new extensions where the inner leaf masonry is still visible above the floor slab.
    There are many variables - i.e. some builders trim out the inner leaf masonry at the below DPC setting out stage so there is no masonry to remove prior to screeding.
    We are only small bud and staffed ok at the mo. Things can change though. Nice of you to put yourself forward. Good luck in the future.
    HI noseall,
    Do you have an email address that I could send some more info about myself? I have a couple more weeks finishing off a current job then I'd be free if I'm suitable for you. You're more than welcome to tell me no if you don't think I'd be right for your business.
    Thanks, WIll
    Hi, I wanted to thank you for your advice on my subfloor install. I have submitted the building notice now and just needed some advice with BC. Should I call BC and mention I will be using M12 sleeve anchors at 600mm staggered to bolt the timber wall plate and ask them if they approve it? Ady
    posted on 2 feb2013 about tile hanging gable end
    could you tell me what the tiles were in your picture
    Hi.

    I noticed your comments on 2 single to 1 double door garage conversions and I was wondering if this is something you undertake as it is something I am thinking of doing to my house in tamworth?
    Hello Noseall! I just read a contribution you made to a posting about retrofitting mild steel L straps to a gable end wall for stability. How would you go about attaching the new strap to the blockwork without going through it? Or do you have to go through it? really appreciate your input if possible. Cheers Steve
