    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.

    Hello, I’m in the stages of planning a loft conversion. It’s not a huge loft and will probably only fit a desk and will be used for storage. I was advised to install two velux windows as to start with so at least we can get some light. I will need separate staircase going into the loft, for which there is space to do so - would I need an architect to draw all this up?

    Hello, I have a fairly new kitchen worktop that has become damaged in one section, which will need to be removed. I would consider just replacing this one section of the worktop if I can, instead of seeking an entirely new worktop style again after just 2 years. Do kitchen fitters offer partial worktop replacements as a service usually? And is it possible to replace this one worktop section without upsetting the rest of the fittings and worktop areas? My only alternative would be to look at getting a new worktop entirely, so I would rather replace the single damaged section somehow, if it’s possible.

    My floorboards have become scuffed over time, with some areas becoming quite noticeably worn. If possible, I would like to hide or get rid of them, one way or another. Is it possible that sanding the areas very lightly could work? Or are there any special treatments that could remove/hide the scuffs as effectively? Any professionals’ opinions or personal past experiences would be great to hear from!

    I have a room that we plan to remove all the wallpaper from, as part of the room’s redecoration. We are planning to remove it by peeling away from the corners, using a damp cloth where required to loosen up any stubborn areas. As precautions, we will cover up the floors nearby and the switches/electrical sockets in case of any accidents in the process. Is this the simplest method for us to try or is there any quicker, more efficient methods we could try instead? Any ideas would be welcome!
