    How many tiles might I need for a carport roof ?

    Thinking about a carport at the gable end of the bungalow. I plan for an apex roof, each "half" will be 3.5m x 2.3m approx. I will use Redland stonewold to match the existing roof. These tiles measure 43cm x 38cm and I have a few left from our kitchen extension. Approximately how many tiles do...

    Can Planning Regulations apply retrospectively ?

    Thanks for the reply. The parking space is not new, only the roof over it is new. So does the roof have to meet the new standards even though the parking space does not ?

    Can Planning Regulations apply retrospectively ?

    I have applied for planning permission to attach a carport to the gable end of our bungalow. The other support for the roof will be two wooden posts sitting on a wide, rebuilt flat-topped stone wall. The parking space was created in 2004 when a bedroom extension was built by previous owners and...

    Canon MG3650s prints biz-zag vertical lines !

    I have an MG 3650s canon printer and it has started to print vertical lines that are sort of zig-zag. I have done both the automatic (no change) and manual head alignment, a little better but not perfect yet . The slight offset of print is enough for the Post Office to fail to read the QR/Bar...

    Replacement battery charger for Ryobi drill. Confused !!!

    I seem to be going round in circles. The old Ryobi charger, the Ryobi BC-1815-S charger that is for 18.0v Ryobi BPP-1820 batteries has finally given up on me after many years of domestic use. It was being used and charging fine and then just stopped, no lights, nothing. I changed the fuse in...

    Problem with dirty pond water.

    Over the past couple of years the pond has started to deposit a layer of "sludge ?" on the pond plant leaves, rocks etc ( If it was inside a house you would say years of dust, a thick layer over every surface). The lily leaves get covered and die off. The pond weed needs a shake to "wash" it off...

    Daikin Altherma E7 error code.

    Many thanks Andrew, engineer will be out tomorrow after a call back from the heating company. Both fans need checking and PCB board, about £1k for all to be replaced if required. Unit is now about 12 years old and I was told to read up on the Energy renewables grant as this could help with a...

    Daikin Altherma E7 error code.

    Our Daikin Altherma heat pump has thrown an E7 error code on the control panel but it has come on as normal this morning and is heating the water in the c/h system, much to my surprise. Will it be OK to leave it working as normal today or will the E7 eventually shut it down ? We are covered with...

    Hotpoint Fridge/Freezer icing up. FFU4D.

    Our Hotpoint FFU4D Fridge freezer has worked perfectly for the past 4 years or so but has now started to ice up underneath the lower freezer drawer. Fridge bit is fine but unless the ice on the inner floor of the freezer part is removed it eventually stops the drawer closing properly.The cause...

    Wood structure/carport. Easier to extend or reduce size ?

    I want to have a wood framed carport built at the gable end of the bungalow. Unfortunately the area is not a regular size, it is wider at the front (drive-in) and narrower at the back. The diagram of the ground area gives the sizes. Would it be easier to get a 'ready to assemble' structure (ie...

    Just HOW do I get a quote for a cantilever carport ?

    You are not far off our original idea. We did consider a wooden structure with a pitched roof to match the roof line and two square posts sat on the wall with the roof butted up and fixed to the bungalow wall but it would have to have been a bespoke structure probably built to measure and the...

    Just HOW do I get a quote for a cantilever carport ?

    Yes, the wall is ours. We had it completely rebuilt last year using the old stone as it was a bit wobbly. Foundations are good and it is a solid structure. I did have it done with the carport in mind and using it to sit legs on. I then thought that a cantilever was a better looking choice and...

    Just HOW do I get a quote for a cantilever carport ?

    The pictures might help explain. Area is narrower at the back and at the front of the bungalow. I believe we will need planning permission and I thought a cantilever, being neater and needing no support legs would be the best option. length of bungalow is 4.65m, opening width 3.5m narrowing to...

    Just HOW do I get a quote for a cantilever carport ?

    No, I didn't put that in the emails. When we get to the point when someone comes to do a survey its the sort of conversation I would want to have but very tactfully ! Cheers Brian.

    Just HOW do I get a quote for a cantilever carport ?

    I have no idea. That is why I want to have it installed by a company and not a DIY job. I would want them to take full responsibility for the strength of the structure after a comprehensive survey. Cheers Brian.
