    Electric underfloor heating under laminate

    Heat the room, basically. We have water based ufh on most of our new build but rushed into the first section and didn't heat it. So we have a suitably sized heating mat, and are just trying to work out which layer goes where.

    Electric underfloor heating under laminate

    Hi. Simple enough question. I have to put an electric underfloor mat in under a laminate floor. Question is, does it go under or over the underlay which goes under the laminate? Thanks

    Painting bathroom on new plaster

    Just that, really. We have a newly plastered, new build bathroom, so plaster over plasterboard. In the past I've bought, and used, emulsion for kitchens and bathrooms. My question is, is this worth doing? Is it very different from 'ordinary' emulsion? Would/do professionals use this, or is it...

    Fixing timber pieces to standard new mdf floor

    At the moment we just have the usual chipboard P5 flooring. If covering that in OSB is the next step, then OK. And over that, what should we do with the timber, please?

    Fixing timber pieces to standard new mdf floor

    I have a number of salvaged pieces of tongue and grooved floor, mainly around 30cm in length, which I am planning to reconstitute into a floor. I'm planning to cut them all, either to the same lengths, or not, and basically lay a tongue and groove patchwork, glued at the cut ends, and in a...

    Relay question

    I have assurance from the manufacturer that if the unit is running at low or medium and this is overridden by running at high this won't be a problem, and it will drop back once the charge on the High speed drops off.

    Relay question

    OK. Next in the ongoing saga of plumbing in our MVHR system. I have the following issue. We are installing an MVHR system, which has a low/med/high fan speed run by a remote, wired in switch.
