This is probably what is known as soffit board which is 300 mm wide this can be purchased from most double glazing companies and is really quite cheap. Have a look in your area to see if there is a Eurocell depot as they have trade counters and you should expect about 60% off list price they also do...

The easiest answer is to change the poly roof to a glass roof the new glass used mainly on roofs is Pilkinton Active which can have a blue tint and has an easy clean facility but you need to do templates and also check that the roof can stand the weight of the units this will be much quieter than th...

This could take several weeks depending how warm it is in there Don't forget there are gallons and gallons of water gone into the floor and this has to come out.

If they are 'flag' hinges which are on the face of the profile there is usually a allen key screw in the bottom this bears on a pin which adjusts it vertically but if the door was not ' toe and healed' properly when it was fitted it will not work.

The easiest thing to do is go to your nearest double glazing contractors and buy some packers from them. These come in 1mm to 6mm thicknesses and are very cheap so you can build up to the right level under the joists. Then screw the joists to the floor incorporating a membrane, if there is not one t...

The first thing is to find out how they are joined together, the normal way is with screws fixed through from the fixed light on either side of the doors. If there is a top light you should be able to see one in there. The roof is normally screwed down through the ring beam into the top of the windo...

Try looking on the "ultraframe" web site they have a box gutter that fits on to the fascia and then you build the roof out from there I did one last week and it works great Les

Just make sure the footings go down to firm ground I usually go to a minimum of 600 mm. trench fill to about 240 mm below damp allowing 3 courses class b bricks to bring it up to damp , make sure you get the footings level otherwise it makes it harder from there up. hope this helps
