    Kitchen tap with aerator & different hot/cold pressures

    Thanks for thereply. Hadn't realised that the particular tap I was looking at was high pressure model, had concentrated on finding one with perlator. Had another look at their site and eventually found a page which detailed taps with info about suitabilty for low pressure and whether perlator...

    Kitchen tap with aerator & different hot/cold pressures

    I want to replace my kitchen mixer tap with one that has a built in aerator or perlator to give a softer flow of water and looking at the Franke Sion which gives a "champagne-like water flow." My cold water is straight off the mains and hot is from an indirect supply with around 5.2 metres head...

    Fitting new skirting and filling plaster gaps

    Hi, not sure if I'm posting this is the right forum as it covers more than one topic but here goes. I'm redecorating a through lounge and replacing all the skirting. Having ripped off the old stuff found that the original plaster stops short of the floorboards by around 60mm for the most...

    Pre finished mdf skirting

    Thanks for that but I am only after about 9m for a very small bedroom so don't think I could justify having it specially finished. As there doesn't seem to be anything of a reasonable quality off the shelf I'm going for primed mdf and will gloss it.

    Pre finished mdf skirting

    Thanks for the reply. I did look at flooring shops but was not at all impressed with the quality, mdf with cheap vinyl stuck on, seems to me that it won't take any wear or knocks. The stuff I looked at on the Australian site seemed to be much superior. I did find some manufactured from...

    Pre finished mdf skirting

    I've been looking for MDF skirting which is pre-finished in white. Found DIY stores selling it ready primed but can't find anywhere which has it already finished though came across this place in Australia which does it with a UV hardened coating...

    Internal door sizes and thickness - imperial

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately that's solid oak not a moulded door and at prices they quoted of around £150 it's over the top for a bedroom door which I want to paint white. They told me that doors I want can be manufactured and he thought about £150 to £200 which is a bit higher than from door...

    Internal door sizes and thickness - imperial

    I also found lots of sites when doing a search for 40mm doors but every one I looked at only did 40mm in metric sized doors. Been round all the buliders merchants, DIY stores and a local branch of door company. Everyone seems to say the same, they don't do imperial sized doors in 40mm thickness...

    Internal door sizes and thickness - imperial

    I am trying to find internal doors to replace some which were originally fitted when the house was built in 1954. These are 6'6" x 2'6" and 2'3" but the difficulty I am having is getting the right thickness, 40mm or 1 5/8". What I would ideally like is exactly the same size in 4 panel moulded...

    last attempt with concrete questions!!!!

    Have you made a mistake with quoting the cost per area! £30 - £40 per sq foot is about £320 - £430 per sq metre Sounds very expensive to me. Should that be £30 - £40 per sq metre.

    Ceramic floor tiles on uneven concrete

    I've just had a porch about 3 sq m added to my house and want to lay ceramic tiles on the floor. The concrete which has been put down is rather uneven and at one point is about 1 cm higher than the lowest. Can I lay ceramic floor tiles on to this surface and make up any unevenness with thicker...
