    The garage floor is composed of block paving, would it be possible to install a concrete floor on top, or would they need lifting? Would a damp proof membrane be required?

    Who would I need to come out to look at a damp patch in my kitchen? I'm guessing rising damp on a wall that used to be external, now part of extension. Would it be a builder or a damp specialist? Thanks

    Hello all, I am planning on some extension work and have not been able to find out how wide the footings for the foundations will need to be. I’ve been told they need to be 1 metre deep, but not how wide. Could anyone enlighten me on this, please? This will be a single storey extension on entirely flat ground.

    I am having an internal wall taken down and RSJ put in but i would like the RSJ to be flush to the ceiling. The builder has said he needs to cut the joist back and then will re-join with 300mm joist screwed to the orgional ones and then hand these on the RSJ, is this strong enough ? or should bolts and longer pieces of timber used.. if bolts how many per joist should be used.

    What tradesman is needed to prepare my roof for a roof lantern to be fitted ? I contacted a roofer who said it was a tricky job and I needed a joiner, so I rang a joiner who said it would be a builder and I cannot get a builder to come ( north east ) as it seems they are all too busy for a small job. It’s a flat roof extension and the roof lantern is 1600 x 1000 ????‍

    I am renovating a small 2 bed terrace house. There are numerous repairs required. These include roof and chimney repairs (stripping slates adding weather barrier and refitting), ground floor repair / renovation and damp tanking (floor joists rotted at front wall), kitchen door move (to existing window) / wall alteration (RSJ) and new fit units, bathroom new fit, new windows / doors (6 windows, front and rear door, 1 small velux), possible rewiring, yard wall demolition and rebuild, free standing garage demolition and removal. I am currently looking for quotes for works required. How much generally should I expect to pay? High and low estimate?? Cheers

    Asked by Jason on 20th Aug 2019

    Am trying to ascertain how difficult and rough idea of cost to remove a chimney breast. The chimney stack, which was on a flat roof, has already been removed and new roof laid. The room in question is directly below this flat roof. There are two flats below, one on first floor and the other on the ground floor - we are on the top.
