I'm having a kitchen extension built and getting UFH installed - the quote for that is £2900, which sounds about right to me. Eventually, I plan to install UFH in the rest of the house myself, so I've asked for a quote for putting a four port manifold on the first floor too as part of...
I have a problem with two windows in the gable end of my semi-detached property. The 1947 property does not have lintels and s such and uses upright "soldier" bricks above the window. The bricks in one of the windows are now bowing out slightly from the wall due to excessive pressure (more than...
We've sourced 2 new rads that we'd like installed in place of our 2 existing ones and have been quoted £350 for getting them swapped over, I wanted to get the opinion of any plumbers/people in the trade to understand if this was in the right ballpark as it sounded a little steep but...
I am a new, first-time home owner (around 18 months) looking for some advice based on quotes I've received for a dry verge and dry ridge system.
During autumn/winter last year I started to notice pink pieces of mortar in the back garden but given the quantity disregarded it as a...
I had my last house rewired. It was a 3 bed semi.
My new house is a 1 bed cottage. It's 25% smaller than my last one in square meters.
The quote to rewire this time is 53% more money than in my last. There are about 3 years difference from having the last one done to receiving this quote.
I have recently been taking on repair jobs as a self-employed trader for an estate agency that manages landlords properties. When I started taking on jobs for them I was originally asking for a flat rate of around £20-25 per hour. But then they asked me to work for £10 per hour, which...
After a bit of advice. We've had 4 builders round to quote on the following work and only one has got back to us with a price of 3k. I was expecting 1.5 to 2k based on my estimates of materials and time:
- use electrician to move internal double socket 400mm to side (£150?)
- divert single...
I just had an EICR done and the electrician recommended swapping the CU unit out as it tripped as soon as he plugged his meter in. It's probably 30 odd years old, BS 5486, so makes sense.
My question is if £600+ is a reasonable cost for installation of a new 5 circuit CU? It's in London.
I currently have a 13 year old Worcester Bosch Greenstar 28i Junior Condensing Boiler installed. It's unfortunately developed a leak on the right hand side as you face it, but it's not losing any pressure and we've still got heating and hot water.
I went on Checkatrade and found a...
Any idea what we should expect to pay (before VAT) on a rewire?
Terraced, 1980 Victorian house
Floorboards that are exposed (no carpet)
All belongings boxes and moving out to avoid getting in the way/speeding things up
No access to roof space in bathroom
Can anyone help me with this? The online calculators are pretty basic and don't really do the job.
Am in a reasonably prosperous town in Wales. Have had prices of 1.5k and 2k?
Any help would be appreciated.
How much is reasonable to pay for:
A) 2 coat skim on pre boarded TE...
We have just had a quote from a local independent flooring firm and it feels very expensive to me, but I would be interested to hear if I am being unreasonable or not.
Hallway of 2.5m x 2.0m with Project Floors distressed smoked oak going onto existing tiles. Was told there needs to be...
We're moving into a new victorian terraced house that needs a lot of work - double glazing, heating, floorboard etc - but the main thing we want to do is a kitchen side extension. From the sale of our previous house, we will end up with around £75k and the idea is to make sure we get the...
I am getting my bathroom redone, and in the process have decided to replace the timber sash window with an aluminium one.
I've received a quote from a company that deals with Origin windows, but rather late in the process they backed out and said they will do supply only. The price they...
Ok. So I know that cost is a very subjective thing but I'm in the midst of a renovation - my first real project - and we're planning to tile most of our ground floor so to take the cold edge of the tiles, we're planning on installing electric underfloor heating.
We've had a quote for around...
We've decided to take the plunge and replace our old, leaky 6m by 4m conservatory with a single story extension and knock through the back of the house to the dining room to create a new kitchen/dining living space. I wondered whether anyone had an idea as to possible ball park...

Not sure if anyone on here can help but we need a roofer to do several repairs to our 1912 mid terrace with a valley. It had a new roof put in roughly 16 years ago with a Velux window.
The main problems are:
a long horizontal damp patch along the landing ceiling that separates the landing...
I am wondering if anyone with experience can help me?
I started painting and decorating after doing some training and recently someone asked me about painting exterior fascia boards, soffits and upstairs exterior side of the windows etc.
I'm not sure what to charge here in the...
My warm air heating system (approx 40 years old) has eventually stopped working and I need to replace it. I've had a quote of £3500 +VAT incl. parts and labour for an Ideal Logic +, 4 rads and a towel rad, removal of old system and all made good. It's a two-bed terrace in Milton Keynes. Does...
