    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    Thanks for the tips, Think my dodgy photography has struck again, there is no condensate pipe, it's just a piece of old bamboo i'd left lying around :) I did end up with someone else coming to take a look, took the skirting board off to have a look and whilst the pointing isn't great outside...

    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    Thanks for all the responses, I think the photo from outside might be a bit deceptive. I've checked and the floor in the kitchen is a good 3 - 4 inches higher than the concrete patio/concrete. there are also a couple of airbricks knocking around the outside walls of the extension. The broken...

    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    Now you mention it the drain/gulley is broken near the top. I remember having the drains inspected and from what i remember we were told it should be ok but now you mention it i guess it's quite probable the gulley is the problem. We did get a quote to have it replaced but the guy never came...

    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    hopefully attached some photos from the outside, the fence post is the boundary fence but i have just noticed when looking at the wall more closely it does look like there may have been a fence post/gate on the wall to the side of the door at some point in the past, Can see a couple of Rawl...

    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    Hi Tell, It is a solid brick wall with what i presume is plasterboard over the top of it. It was originally the outside wall prior to the extension being built. Originally would have had a window where the worktop is now and the backdoor to the side of it. The otherside of the wall has no...

    Damp repair/ quote advice.

    Hi all, Moved into our house just over 2 years ago now and have a small area of damp near the back door in the kitchen. This was present when we moved in and was noted on our survey but it wasn't deemed a major issue. This wall in question would have been the old external wall/window frame...

    Radiator pipe leak

    Hi Ian, No, I can see where you mean where the paint podge has dried like a drip, I've circled the point of the small leak in the attached photo. I can sometimes see the odd drip coming from this point and there is a small patch of water on the floor below this point that appears.

    Radiator pipe leak

    Hi All, Moved into a house in June and boiler/heating all appeared to be working fine. Got to around october and once we started using the heating more regularly i noticed a small patch of water underneath one of the radiators. not a massive amount and was only noticed after it had dried and...

    Drain issue

    Hi All, Firsty sorry if this is in the wrong section but wasn't quite sure where to start with this one. I've just moved into a house and have noticed that 2 drain holes along the side of the house look a little bit broken/out of alignment. There isn't any signs of blockage or any foul...

    Accenta G4 - not enough time to deactivate

    Hi Matt, Thanks for the response, Now you've explained it that makes perfect sense. I think judging by the way the alarm noise changes as soon as the living room sensor is triggered suggests it is possibly the entry route that is the issue. The company that came out last week to reset the...

    Accenta G4 - not enough time to deactivate

    Hi all, Hoping someone can help here. Just moved into a new home which has an accenta g4 alarm with an lcd keypad. Had an engineer to fix it last week... (turns out previous owners replaced a door but forgot to put a magnet back the new door on so it wouldn't set....) anyway the alarm is...
