    Hi All, I hope this isn’t too silly to ask, but can I paint my radiator using tile paint? It’s just to cover some rusty patches where the paint has flaked off. I don’t have any other paint available right now, but don’t know if there is any special paint I should be using and I’m cautious it might affect the radiator working. Many thanks, K

    Hi All, I am looking to install a new garden tap at home. Some have told me that I would need a “double-check valve” fitted for the water supply, to prevent freezing the valve in cold weather. Is this an absolute requirement? Would this mean that I would have the valve inside the house and then use a garden tap that does not contain this valve inside it? Are there any problems in using a tap with a check valve built-in, instead? IE – could it still cause freezing during cold weather? Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hello I have a silver birch tree in my garden, adjacent to my house. It is getting quite tall and is getting very close to the gutter. I would like to get it trimmed down to a more reasonable size to reduce any risk of strong winds causing the tree to cause damage to my house. Is there a best suited time of the year to cut the top of the tree off? I am worried cutting it before or during winter may kill the tree, which I definitely don’t want. Any advice on this would be appreciated.

    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

    Hello, Due to some major renovation work we have planned for our home, we will need a waste removal service to get rid of the junk being cleared out. We would ideally like to hire a skip for the waste with removal service after the renovation is finished. Does anyone have any estimates of the costs for hiring a waste removal service? Do most waste removal companies provide skips as part of the service? Are there any other costs involved?
