    Flashing around a sky light

    Sounds good. You say put it along the top and two sides, not along the bottom too?

    Flashing around a sky light

    Thanks Harry, it’s in our utility room. I can’t afford a roofer at the minute, aren’t there any flashing tapes, or even run some lead round that would do something temporary?

    Flashing around a sky light

    Thanks for your reply Harry. I just don't have the money at the moment I just need to make the best repair I can myself. I don't mind spending the money on some decent materials.

    Flashing around a sky light

    I've got a leaky roof light, I can't climb onto the roof and take a really close look 'cos I think the roof will collapse under my weight, this picture shows it quite well. I'm guessing the flashing needs to be replaced. Is it easy to pull up the existing flashing and replace with something...

    Slow draining sink

    Oh sorry, that’s me on both usernames. I forgot about my old username, that must be more than 10 years old. I started the thread on my PC, then replied later in the thread from my iPad, which must have automatically logged me on with my old name.

    Slow draining sink

    My daughter has a kitchen sink that takes a long time to empty. I disconnected the pipes under the sink, there's no blockage in them. See the photos attached, I've checked on-line and I haven't seen any examples of sink pipework/traps that look like this. After the trap it seems like the pipe...

    Only 30 to 40mm screed

    Hi, I've built an extension and after casting the concrete floor, I realised I'd only left enough height for a screed of between 30 and 40mm, I understand the screed should be 50mm. Should I just go for it and screed it anyway, is there an additive to make it stronger, or should I use some...

    Making good after I've installed a lintel

    Will Bonding stick to the lintel? And will I need to PVA the blocks before I apply Bonding? Thanks.
