    Could someone give me an indication as to how much a structural engineer would cost? I have an old bungalow and want to do some extensive restoration work.

    Costs for extensions vary across counties. What did you pay for stuff like single storey, garage, conservatory, etc?

    Hi, I recently cleared out under my stairs and found mould growing along the back wall. After clearing it off with mould spray and bleach, I found in the plaster peeling off in the corner. Using a moisture meter I found it to be very damp at least 1.2m high. Will this wall panel need replacing? I also checked moisture content along the skirting board and I think all of it in the cupboard will need replacing. mAlso, is this question better for a plasterer or a builder? Maybe I'm asking the wrong people!

    I have been asked to get a quote for an insurance claim but i'm not sure what trade to contact. I notice water damage at the bottom of my kitchen unit. I pulled back the flooring at my patio doors & the floor is damp/wet. I have a couple of steps going down into the garden. I think the water has come in due to the heavy rain & high winds. How much would I be looking at to remediate the damage and what trade should i be contacting? Thanks.

    Hi, How much (approximately) would it cost to install an RSJ to an external load bearing wall between a dining room and extension in order to open the dining room into the kitchen? This is to make an L shaped kitchen diner. This job would involve the removal of a wall below the RSJ, approximately 7ft x 6ft.

    I am a single working mum of 4 children living in a private rented property. I have informed my landlord on many occasions and I with no other options had to call out environmental health. After 2 visits to the property, they said it was a danger, then after them meeting the landlord, I have been ignored. Since last year I've had cracks appear inside and outside of my flat above a shop which I measure daily and are quite deep and wide enough to get my fingers in. There are also gaps in the stairs and between floors, skirting boards and windows etc. Now door frames are coming away from walls and snapping. Is there a way I can get a free structural report? I am afraid, I'm living here with 4 children and it's dangerous but not able to afford to get help off my own back.

    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?
