    Plastering wall over stairs

    I’d screwed down some chocks to stop things moving but you’re both right- it was a bit nerve wracking stepping on! I didn’t know what else to do! Out of the woods now :)

    Plastering wall over stairs

    Leaking and corroded boiler- with photos

    Leaking and corroded boiler- with photos

    Hi all Greenstar 30si compact So my boiler has been working fine, just it loses pressure and needs topping up a 3-4 times a month. There’s rust marks down the facia and I need to keep a washing up bowl underneath it to catch drips. So I took the cover off today - and look at the state of this...
