    Now then!

    We are getting a plasterer to overboard two walls each with rads.

    I am replacing both rads with new ones - in different places and clearing up from a bad woodworm infestation as part of the same project.

    I am now half-way through installing a chipboard floor and want to run my pipe work whilst the floors are up.

    Should I place the rads roughly in their new position, but on the old wall, work out where the pipes need to go and then add say 1.5"-2" to the distance from the wall? (standard wall board + dot&dab + skim width)

    I am using plastic pipe below the floor so there will be a small margin of flex

    or would I really be best just waiting until the new wall is finished, biting the bullet and shimmying around the crawl space?

    What have others done? what would you do if you weren't going to move/replace the rads anyway?

    I have posted a similar question in the Electrics forum too - but about plug sockets.

    Cheers

    Whitling2k!

    Measure out where you expect the rads to be, then where the bracket fixings are going to be. Once that is done, when boarding out get a good helping of wall adhesive where the brackets are going to be fixed.
