    Tradesman wont give final invoice?

    This is a bit of a strange one. I had a home extension built which was finished 18months ago and still haven't received the final invoice from the electrician despite me chasing him many times. His original quote was about £5k, and there was some variance to the work completed, eg some extra...

    Wall extractor vent positioning

    That is one of my concerns as the small wall I would have to drill through is supporting one end ofa massive 4m wide steel holding up the back of the house. I could put it in the ceiling but the ducting would have to be 3+m long. I cant use an inline extractor as I'd have no way of accessing...

    Wall extractor vent positioning

    Are there any building regs for the positioning of the vent on for a 5" wall mounted extractor fan? The only location I have would mean positioning it between a door frame and an internal corner of an external wall. I know if this was a flue on a boiler it would not pass regs, but can't find...

    Do I need to vent kitchen sink waste?

    I need to run approx 4m straight length of 40mm kitchen waste. This will be connected to the kitchen sink and a dishwasher. I will put rodding points at either end of the 4m pipe.

    Filling floor cavity void to fit sliding doors

    Thanks for the reply. Their point is that the sill/ frame is not wide enough to sit on the inner and outer course of bricks. So if I did as you suggest and just fitted a cavity closure half of the frame at floor level would not be supported.

    Filling floor cavity void to fit sliding doors

    I'm having a set of external floor to ceiling glass sliding doors fitted, and the door fitters have advised that I need to fill the current (55mm) cavity void to level with the top of the floor brick work as the door frame needs to sit on a solid base. The frame will sit on the outside course of...

    Infrared heater - wiring question

    I have both light and and socket circuits in my loft. It would be easier to run the spur off the lighting (currently has 4 lights and 2 extractor fans on the circuit) , but wasn't sure if this heater would overload the light circuit.

    Infrared heater - wiring question

    Thanks for the replies. The room size is L=2.5M x W=1.8M (its a small en-suite). The shower is at one end of the room and I was planning on either mounting the heater panel either in the middle of the ceiling (its a 60cm x 60cm panel) or if necessary I can mount it at the opposite and of the...

    I have an infrared heater panel that I want to ceiling mount in a bathroom. It is IP44 rated , 350W and comes pre fitted with a 5A fused plug. It doesn't have any controls. I want to have it working off a timer with a separate isolator switch. I'm not worried about having a thermostat...
