    Recycling window panes

    Yeah. I guess it’s the spacers that make them a problem maybe? Whereas glass bottles can just be melted down easily. Annoying though when you try to do the right thing. Yeah I’m surprised by some of the things that are so difficult to recycle but arguably, shouldn’t be.

    Recycling window panes

    I asked where I bought the new panes from but they didn’t want it. The other one near me are quite pricey so assume they’d only do it for a decent payout. Amazing how hard it is seeing how easy it is to recycle them.

    Recycling window panes

    Hey everyone I’ve just changed 19 panes of double glazing in my conservatory. I’m really struggling to find a place to take the old planes to recycle. All the local tips just keep saying chuck it in landfill which seems a shame as it’s so easily recycled. I’ve asked local allotments, put it...

    Help identifying conservatory guttering please

    Thanks Dale. I’ll give them a go. They’ve been in my basket for ages but I guess I can always send them back if they aren’t right! I’ll feedback if they work!

    Help identifying conservatory guttering please

    Thanks Dale. Yeah I’ve had all the guttering off to give it a proper clean so I know which clips you mean. Fortunately they’re all in one piece and it’s just the seals that are the problem. Is there a universal seal you tend to go for? The issue I’m having is there are various different...

    Detached garage conversion (can I use stud walls) (Ed.)

    No worries. I’ve added some photos if that helps explain what I mean. It’s all the same wall.

    Detached garage conversion (can I use stud walls) (Ed.)

    I did pretty much one of every type of wall in my integral garage conversion. Key thing is insulation. If its single skin ensure your piers are ok (mine were pulling away from the wall so had to relay them). Make sure you put a breather membrane up first if its single skin brick (I used Tyvek...

    Marshall tufflex gutter seals

    Thanks Wayners. That’s the one yeah. But seems to be out of stock everywhere I’ve looked. Or they want £9 to deliver it! I’m wondering if there is another manufacturer that’s making a similar profile. Apparently they are glue in as well. Any idea what glue is suitable?

    Marshall tufflex gutter seals

    Hi, I've got some ogee marshall tufflex guttering. Its not made anymore and as such spares want over £10 for just one joint. Its on a conservatory so tying it into the metal guttering that goes round the back (can't remember the term for it) means replacing the whole system is a no go. I'm...

    Help identifying conservatory guttering please

    What did you do in the end with this? I've got the same guttering by the looks of it (marshall tufflex) and the same problem. Hoping to just change the rubber seals as the rest of it seems fine.

    Self build extension costs

    Nice work! Thanks. I’ve done a fair few bits on my current house so it’s given me some experience. Especially as that’s involved fixing so much poor work done by the previous owner. I’ve reclad the dormer stripping it right back to frame, garage conversion, refit a flat roof, changed all the...

    Self build extension costs

    That’s the worry I have. It won’t be to a high standard but I’d probably go the render route so I guess it doesn’t matter too much. I assume most of the assistance tools you get with bricklaying are a bit gimmicky other than the corner levelling things. Are there alternatives to brick and...

    Self build extension costs

    Its probably the one that makes me the most nervous. Plastering is probably technically more difficult with timings etc. But if you mess it up, a bag of plaster isn't much. I've done no brick laying at all so I'm wary of then taking on a full extension. I think for me its getting the mix right...

    Slow going - my double storey extension build

    Absolutely stunning what you've done with it. Thanks for pointing me in your threads direction. Really helpful! Exactly the colour scheme I'd have picked with the render and cedar. Very jealous!

    Self build extension costs

    Nice, that the one just behind the shopping park? I'm usually using MKM as my mate has a trade account with them so they usually do loads of things cheap for me when I need odds and ends. He gets on well with them which helps my case!

    Self build extension costs

    Ah just down the road, what are the odds! Which merchants did you tend to favour when sourcing materials? Did you do much shopping around? Will take a look now, thanks. Yeah, its one of my main concerns. Wondering if there are cheaper alternatives I'd be more comfortable doing myself that...

    Self build extension costs

    I'm tempted to go the block route and have it rendered. It would save matching the bricks up it up but again rendering is a pricey job. Just depends how much it saves going the block route and whether there is enough there to cover that. I do love the aesthetic of a light render with some wood...
