    How many posts for this deck

    Hi Probably should have put a bit more detail on that, so another highly detailed, to scale plan how does that look? black blobs are posts, going to run joists down both sides of posts, and then run joists off these, obviously put some noggins in as well. Stuart

    Composite decking joists

    Hi I am about to lay around 30m2 of Millboard decking in my back garden. I was initially going to make the frame from timber, but I am worried about how long this will last, not as long as the decking thats for certain. So looking at composite joists instead, however can't find any details about...

    2 port valve for underfloor heating

    I have underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs. Each floor has a 2 port valve on the flow so can work independently from each other. Just wondering why the flow to the underfloor heating needs a valve to it. If the underfloor heating thermostats aren't calling for heat all the...

    Towel radiator on secondary system

    Onetap I bow to your greater knowledge, rad was a replacement not a new install. Does this help with why the rads are developing holes after a short period of time?

    Towel radiator on secondary system

    Some signs of white deposits on circulating pump. The SS rad has gone not just on the welds but along the pipes themselves. Surely to effect the rad that quickly, any problems with the water would be very obvious. Not to mention hazardous to health.

    Towel radiator on secondary system

    Not sure about pipes to other rads, but plastic up to the rad in question. First rad was expensive, second average price. Surely even a cheap one, if actually made of stainless steel, would last longer than 3 weeks.

    Help with loft conversion please

    Hi I have just been upstiars and wondered could I do it another way- Foil straight onto underside of joists then knigspan, and then plasterboard. this would give a nice big airspace around the joists. Would I need to create an airgap below/over the kingspan? If so how big? Thanks Stuart.

    Help with loft conversion please

    Thanks John I am resigned to the fact i will have to strip it all out and start again, just glad i didnt get to the plastering stage. :) I am thinking what I need to do is- 1. drop the kingspan down to allow min 50mm gap between it and slates. 2. then allow another 40mm to the foil stuff...
