Job done and I only fell off the ladder twice. Those chemical fixings are fab!!!
The bricks are perforated or engineering bricks meaning that there are three big holes in the middle. They may be full of mortar but might not be....
Might try resin anchors.
.... hmm engineering bricks are hollow in places so maybe I have a problem.
No idea. :-/
They are going into engineering bricks which will be a bugger to drill. I'll check the specs. Cheers.
I can't read. :)
... and then I found Toolstation had everything aside from the timber (Travis Perkins).
The biggest issue I'm having now is sourcing the right joist/hanger combination. You'd think that's be the easy bit!
I want ones to bolt into...
Fab!! Thanks so much!!
I'm so confused. If you can add a picture or email it to me al (at) brooky (dot) com. I'd be so grateful.
Another option might be to sister the existing beams with glue/screws.
I've spent hours looking into this. Why did you use vertical joists and nail the joist hanger to them? Can't you just bolt the joist hanger into...
Great minds think alike!! No idea what you are talking about though with block piers and truss ties.. Googling..
Thanks guys. I'm looking into it. Our boiler is in the kitchen and I think it will stick out the bottom of the cupboard so might loo a bit silly.
I have a 6m x 3m single garage which I want to board out. I don't think the roof structure is very strong so wanted to add two joists...
Nope. Does any new build? Worth it?
We have a new build (7 months old). The heating was cleaned with X300 then X100 added.
The builders replaced a scratched towel...
Thanks for your reply. I switched the connectors around in the control board and it fixed it. 1 minute job.
