    Is it possible to connect the guttering runaway to the house’s sewer system? And is this still legal to have this changed? Currently we have a soakaway area with a hole that this gutter leads to, but this is getting blocked up regularly now. This is an old house which has a combined sewer system which has another set of gutters which do connect to the sewer system.

    Hello all I have metal gates at the end of my driveway and metal fences and railings around the perimeter of my garden. I have noticed the paint work is beginning to wear and I am concerned about the damage of leaving them exposed to the elements for too long. Is there any paints which can prevent the risks of rust and other wearing on metal like this?

    Hi all, How do I go about starting the planning process for a single storey extension on my home? I want to have a small extension built to the side of the existing building, to be used an additional utility room. Shall I get quotes before having plans made or have the plans made first? Are architects able to advise me on the plans themselves? And what would be an approximate cost for an architect to produce the plans for the extension? Will I need planning permission for this extension? It will be entirely within my property boundaries. Additionally, please let me know if you have any ideas of how long this could take, how long to have quotes/plans made or any other advice for building an extension like this.

    Hi All, Can anybody tell me, how many turns of PTFE tape is required on radiator joints? I have been told that it should be 10 to 12 turns, but I usually use 3 to 5 turns of PTFE on CH joints which hasn’t been much of a problem to me so far. (Apart from an occasional leak on the first test anyway!) Thanks, Harry

    I have recently moved into my new house. It is an old stone house and has been renovated in recent years, which I’m told has had some instances of rodent infestation in the past. I don’t want any repeat of that for me, so I want to prevent them even getting into the house as much as possible. Does anyone have any advice for preventing this?
