    PIR insulation board cutter

    I used the bacho insulation saw and made a table up with timber guide top and bottom to stop wandering and get square cuts. This was with 100mm PIR, so really on the limit of the saw. I also used gapotape which was brilliant.

    Gapotape

    I found it easier to do a really nice job with the gapotape, it's much more forgiving. I wanted to get the best insulation install that I could within reason (my home office), so went PIR and gapotape. I've never been convinced the hybrid foil layer type can be anywhere near as good in performance.

    Gapotape

    I've done a vaulted ceiling with it in my own house. I really liked it and the cost wasn't hugely significant in the overall scheme of things. The foil tape it comes with is much stronger than the normal roll of foil tape you buy as it's got a reinforced paper layer. The method you propose...

    Strimmer and Hedge Trimmer: Petrol or Battery?

    I don't use petrol garden tools enough to warrant the maintenance. So I've recently gone for the dewalt hedge timmer and dewalt strimmer as I've got other dewalt power tools. More than happy with both and so much more convenient and pleasant to use.

    To Replace the Roof or Not!?

    Looks like it's got a good amount of life left in it to me. Personally I wouldn't touch it.

    Which face of Aquapanel Interior boards faces out (takes the tiles) ?

    Not really my area of knowledge, but I really wouldn't have thought so, it's just a cement board.

    cement cost

    Personally I'd mix that small amount myself. Save risking being under or over. Minimum order maybe 1m3, you'd need to check.

    cement cost

    0.5m3 isn't a lot, not worth readymix. Hire a cement mixer?

    Gravel drive and path, cheapest easiest way to keep gravel contained

    Sounds like an awful idea, it'll just break up. As said, I'd be looking at a grid system if you want to walk or drive on it.

    Patio Channel Drainage Query

    Not that really shows the fall. The channel drain is just in front of the steps. Flows into a silt trap (under the sofa) and then to a 2m3 crate soak away under the lawn.

    Advice on circular saw for a gift

    I too would feel a bit uneasy buying quite a dangerous tool for someone with seemingly little experience in DIY. The blades on these tools can inflict significant injury in a split second. Perhaps just take that into consideration.
