    Hi all I am working on building my own brick barbecue at the moment. I have a completed base of concrete and now trying to sort a good mortar mix. I’ve been told to use a ratio of 6:2:1 of sand:lime:cement, but does not seem to have turned out as I had hoped which dries exceptionally quickly and does not bind with the bricks to stick together. Has anyone any advice or suggestions? Should I try a different ratio for the mix?

    Hello I have been trying to get my TV to connect to an aerial point of the home, but there apparently no TV signal. This is an aerial port I have not used before and features two cables from the point. The aerial seems to have worked fine through other ports in the past. Has anyone any advice on this issue?

    Hello, I have installed a new bath shower screen recently. It does fit, but seems to be a little looser than expected. Does this happen usually, or ought there be more stiffness or friction to limit it’s movement? Also – I have a seal leak at the end of the hinge. Is there a possible way to stop this? Or any recommended seals I should use instead? Any advice would be appreciated – thanks!

    Hi All, I have a bathroom undergoing renovation at the moment, including some recently plastered walls. Is there any paints I should be using for a bathroom specifically? Anti-damp/water resistant perhaps? Would it be feasible to use normal emulsion at all? Also, if I do need to use bathroom-specific paint, could I do a first coat using an ordinary white thinned emulsion over the plaster?

    Hi Guys, I’m currently on a project of redecorating my home. Right now, I want to repaint the walls/ceiling of my kitchen & bathrooms. I would like recommendations for the type of paint I should be using. I have been told that there are special paints for both, like ‘Dulux Kitchen / Bathroom +’, while I’ve also been told that any normal matte emulsion is fine too. I had planned on using the Dulux Classics Timeless range as it is an interior paint, but I don’t know if it would be suitable for my bathroom or kitchen with the possibility of heat and moisture in the air. What do you all recommend best? Will the bathroom need different paint for moisture?
