    Survey to check on a builder's roofing work

    I'm fairly sure the builder is not a member of any trade body. How much should I expect to pay for a roofing survey? The roof is mainly slate. The house is a largish 3-bed house, 1.5 storey with two dormers. Plan view is a T-shape i.e. an (old) extension sticking out the back (the stalk of the...

    Survey to check on a builder's roofing work

    Theoretically this shouldn't be a DIY question, but it's becoming one. I've had most of our house re-roofed by a builder, but am becoming a bit suspect as to the quality of the work. He's already been back to fix some issues (twice now) and I've also fixed another issue myself; seemed less...

    Hotpoint Aquarius WMA34

    My other half did indeed comment that it was sounding noisy before it stopped. It has had some clunking noises before also from time to time. -- Tim.

    Hotpoint Aquarius WMA34

    Hi, We have a secondhand WMA34 (it was left in the house we have just moved into). It worked a few times, but no more. The drum has stopped turning. After reading this http://www.diynot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=18792 a hefty turn with the paddles moved it. Its not entirely free though...
