Re: Bentley LVT - Any good?

Re: Any Idea What This Cable is and why it Goes Next Door ?

Personally I would call an electrician forst Pal. Act dumb with the neighbour and then there's no fall out with them accusing you of suspecting them stealing volts from you.

Re: Vinyl Click Tiles in Kitchen

What is the original floor? If it's concrete then I would screed it. If it's floorboards then maybe cover the whole floor with a 20mm MDF.

Nest Doorbell Camera Gone Offline

Hi all,

I have recently bought a NEST doorbell camera. It's set up near my router however when someone comes to the door it takes a while (about 2 minutes) to alert me and this obviously can result in the person leaving by the time I get the alert.

Any advice on to make it instant?

Re: Exterior Wood Paint and Painting Wood Surrounds on a Garage

I have personally used Hammerite and can't recommend it enough. I painted my garage a racing green 6 years ago and it still looks fab.

Hope that helps

Re: Any Idea What This Cable is and why it Goes Next Door ?

Jeeeeez, looks crazy. Do you know where the main feed for electrics enters your property? This could be a main route in that is also shared with your neighbour?

What is your electricity bill like?

Re: Crumbling Brick Behind Fireplace After Removing

Are you planning on having a live fire in there? I think if so you had best either render the bricks with a solid ratio of cement or install acros and rebrick.

Let me know about the live flame. Do you have photos?

Re: Is Membrane Needed For Laminate Flooring Over Chipboard Floor?

You shouldn't need to. Is the chipboard wet / damp?
