    My electric fence won’t work in dry weather or at least doesn’t appear to as far as I can tell. Do you’ve any idea why this is happening and what can be done about it? Is it something that I can inspect myself and solve or is this too dangerous?

    Hello, I’m buying a house. It has Artex ceilings ( May have asbestos as the house is from 70s) I want to have spot lights installedIn the living room and kitchen and the ceiling plastered and skimmed. Do I have to get the ceilings plastered first and then lights installed? What are the safety considerations around making holes in a ceiling that possibly contains asbestos. The bedrooms above have carpets and floorboards underneath ( as I was told) Thank you
