    latex slc depth over underfloor heating

    Thanks for your reply. I was advised by my tiler that I did not need insulation boards. Since the base is slab, I do wonder whether 6mm of insulation board would help.

    latex slc depth over underfloor heating

    Just planning the electric underfloor heating install for the kitchen. Looks like it is going straight onto concrete slab, with suitable primer adhesive, then 10-12 mm of latex slc over it to get to the level of the other rooms. Is this sensible to have such a depth? Thanks.

    So I've had my electrician in and he has put all new cable into the consumer unit, except the main feed and earth to the consumer unit which were fine. The new cables go in a short way, then they go to junction boxes. Remembering that above my consumer unit where all the cables came out was...

    polystyrene beads and electrical cable twin and earth

    Last year I had a new consumer unit fitted in the downstairs hall by my electrician. He also installed some other lighting, checked all the sockets, and checked some work I did before certifying all of the work. This year I'm about to fit new wood laminate floor to the upstairs hall. I had a...
