Can anyone help? The boiler in our Chalet works well most of the time but then will cut out just when we most need it to be reliable ie: if we are away and the weather's very cold. Loads of plumbers have 'fixed it' but the problem remains so this year we wondered if we might just close it off and drain the system. However our plumber seemed reluctant to do this and said something about anti-freeze - which we had put in last year. Could he be trying to tell us that if there is anti-freeze in the system we just need to turn off the boiler and the water supply and all should not freeze up?
Can anyone please suggest a very hard wearing varnish that I can use on kitchen work surfaces.I used to use an extremely hard wearing 2 pack (varnish with a hardener) floor varnish in the UK, But I am struggling to find a similar product here.So any help will be appreciated.
Although many readers may be aware,there maybe those who are not, about a change in legislation regarding house sales. As from 1st January 2011 it is a legal requirement to display on any house in France advertised for sale ,either privately,or by an agent,a DPE rating ( diagnostic performance énergétique). This has been a requirement as part of the DDT (Dossier de Diagnostic Technique),obligatory for some while,but now has to be displayed at the time of advertising.
Hi first posting coming up. Just viewed a very nice chalet close to Tignes and are wanting to put an offer on it. Is it customary as in the UK to put in a cheeky offer at first as we know we are the only ones intrested in it and its been on the market a while. Thanks for any help.
We are buying a new house in the Alps, Collonges-sous-Saleve area and have been told that the internal walls will have 'crepe' on them, too much like artex for me! We were told that alternatives would be very, very expensive. All I wanted was smooth walls like we have in the UK. Is this possible over here? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
