    Wooden interior window sill beneath bay window in upstairs bedroom has a bulge in the inside corner. The window is double glazed and secondary glazing has also been installed. The area isn't damp and the bulge is firm to the touch and doesn't move, even when I press it. Any advice on how to get this investigated and fixed would be welcomed. Thanks.

    Hi all, I’m looking to install skirting boards along my hallway walls. I have read some mixed messages about using some adhesives for skirting boards online and some recommending to instead have the skirting boards drilled in. Would adhesives be suitable enough for typical hallways? Is there any specific problems I should look out for if I went for the adhesive route? And are there any particular brands I should steer clear of for this? Currently, I have painted walls, which will be dry and there’s not likely much risk of damage day to day – if this makes a difference at all. I’d like to hear what others’ experiences have been using adhesives versus drilled in skirting boards.

    Hi all, I have a bedroom loft conversion which is entered with an open stairway (approx. same height as a standard door frame and was hoping to have louvred doors as the entrance to the bedroom. Would it be possible to hang to louvred doors in front of the staircase? I would like to have them hinged centrally to be bifold – as the landing space would be quite small. Would this require a full door frame for the louvred doors or is there any other options? For example, could I hand them off the side of the wall or attach to a wooden baton for the hinges? Thanks Han

    Hi, I have several projects that I require carpenter(s) to be hired for, but I am wary about the cost this might be. Does anyone have any reasonable estimates for the hourly cost of a carpenter?
