    Great video. If you don't mind I have a question, I've just moved into a property built in the 1960's it had a one crack in the outside brickwork on the first floor a wide (>10mm) crack in the interior kitchen wall and on the first day in the property I removed the wallpaper in the bathroom (directly above the kitchen) and found another wide (>10mm) crack. It seems to fit the criteria of subsidence, would the surveyor working on behalf of the mortgage advisor have missed this? Who would be liable for this if it is subsidence since I've only had the property 1 day? What steps should I take next?

    Is it legal to create your own cladding mix, by combining different ingredients? For instance, could I create a lime monocouche hybrid, etc.? How could I tell if my hybrid is going to work okay? Is this simply too risky eitherway? Just a thought.

    Asked by Carherine on 25th Feb 2021

    There’s work going on just behind my house but its causing plenty of dirt, sediment etc. to gather on the road. Can I have the council ensure that something is done about it, such as the builders cleaning up the mess, etc.? It is quite a nuisance and doesn’t make the street look particularly good. And I’m not the only one, a few other neighbours aren't happy either. It’s not the biggest deal in the world but we’d prefer if there wasn’t that much of a mess on the road.

    Hi there, I have a condensation issue on my window frame caused by a non insulated metal building curtain frame. I wanted to ask if i could stop the damp appearing by insulating and then covering over with plasterboard? Many thanks.

    Asked by Julie on 19th Feb 2021

    I have a nearly square area of 5 x 5 metres right up to the boundary fences, which I am thinking of building living space, for use as office space and/or temporary living accommodation. I liken it to a studio apartment with kitchen, bathing, living, sleeping areas. What would be the best way to start exploring this project. Would I need planning, architectural services? Any advice would be appreciated at this stage.

    How risky is it to install an RSJ DIY? Is it okay to do so? Do you need special permission or approval? How does it work? Thanks.
