    Removing Trv Head

    Hi all, Would I be right in thinking if I remove a trv head and leave it off then it would be the equivalent of having it fitted and fully open? My darling wife has bought a side board to go around the radiator in our porch but it's not wide enough to fit with the trv head in place, being...

    How would you cut PVC pannnelling for this wall?

    If it's a 2.4m board and made of a similar construction to hollow soffit I'd cut the rear of the board at the bend and it should have enough flex in just the front finished face to follow the curve of the ceiling allowing you to do it all with 1 board.

    Measuring Kickboard Height

    Installation of a low profile shower tray on a concrete floor

    Sorry to jump in, Rob what do you use for the tanking covering? I've my own tray to lay soon onto ply so it's probably worthwhile me tanking the ply and up onto a couple of feet of the walls as insurance as its an upstairs bathroom.
