I'm now at the stage wher I have a series of volets.......4 prs. of doors (each door 70x228 cm...ie.8 in all) and some 5 prs. of smaller window volets (each "door" being 50 x 165cm...i.e 10 in all). The present ones are wooden,topside of 10yrs. old I reckon, an.d are showing serious signs of decay despite my best annual painting efforts ( a bit like the proverbial Forth Bridge really). I have therefore (reluctantly concluded that they might be due for replacement and I wondered if anyone out there has made the PVC vs. wood decision for such replacements, and if they have any advice as to the best people to deal with, how/why did you chose one type over the other, typical costs etc. Anybody prepared to share their experience...good or bad...and some reliable suppliers names would be welcome. Thanks everyone
Hi to all, we have a honeysuckle growing on the front wall of my house, which is south facing. Every spring it grows luxuriant foliage and looks green and healthy. However, at the same time every year, just as it is coming into bud, the whole plant starts shedding its leaves, looks as if it has very bad mildew and finally appears to be dead! When this happens I cut it back. It then regrows with lovely green foliage once again and stays like this for the rest of the summer. Does anyone know the reason why it does this every year and perhaps give me some advice as to how to remedy it? Many thanks.
Hoping someone out there knows of the product/solution I can use on rusty corrugated iron roof. The rust has not gone through to the underneath so I am thinking it must be possible to coat it with something that stops the rusting process and creates a protection? Any advice welcomed thanks
Hi we are looking to install underfloor heating and wondered if anyone out there has done this recently and would share their experiences. We have also recieved 2 quotes for this and would like to understand if these are for about what we should expect to pay as they seem a little on the high side. Any help appreciated
