  1. Hi all, Ginger female cat been missing since 05/10/16 around the Archer Road, Millhouses area. Goes by the name of Mollie and is quite timid, wearing a zig-zag pattern collar with small bell on it. She is 10 years old, has half of one front tooth missing and is micro-chipped. She may have got into a shed/outhouse, never usually goes further than immediate neighbours gardens so is quite out of character for her. If anyone comes across her please contact as she is dearly missed. Thanks.
  2. Hi Also looking for recommendations for a reliable, experienced and reasonably priced plasterer to obtain quote for skimming walls/ artexed ceiling of a small double bedroom and the artexed ceiling of a large double bedroom. Looking to begin work in the next 3 to 4 weeks in s8 Thanks
  3. Yes it must be as my partner always comments how it seems to be the side that the rain hammers down on!! i just wasn't sure if it would be that as the damp comes under the sill but also seems to come up from the skirting as well although the skirting board itself isn't damp..
  4. Yes it is pvc bay window, and I'm pretty sure the house has and it is a typical bay window terrace built around 1900
  5. Hi We bought a house in October with no signs of damp. After a few months in the lounge after taking up carpet and redecorating we have had a continuing problem under the bay window sill on the right side. There is damp under the window sill and what looks like rising damp from the skirting board with patches random places on the wall in the middle. My partner has repointed areas outside that look like it could have been a problem and resealed under the outside window sill but the problem continues. Cannot see any sign of gutter leaking down the wall either. The cellar immediately below has an air vent. Any ideas of what else could be the problem and recommendations of people to come take a look and quote. Its only an isolated area so am reluctant to pay £125+ for a damp survey of the entire house Thanks in advance
  6. Hi Just a few recommendations from people we have used recently: NILEC electrical- andy did a great job and reasonable rates! 07967806043 another recommendation for mac plastering! We've use Chris for the second time and again happy with his work and price! 07849 946 223 Would happily use both again in the future!
  7. Can thoroughly recommend Chris @ MAC plastering 07849946223 if you are in need of a reliable, genuine and reasonably priced skilled plasterer. Skimmed two artexed ceilings for us in lounge and landing, very pleased with his work! We will be using him again when need the next two rooms doing and wall reboarded and plastered. Good price and tidied up any mess afterwards too. After a bad experience with another person off the forum we are very happy to have gone to Chris this time around
  8. Hi! I am going to attempt to make a cute dress for a friends little girl (2years) but after picking my material and looking at how to's online I think I definitely need a pattern to work from as I am very much a novice!! Any recommendations for the best place to get reasonably priced patterns in Sheffield, ideally in the hillsborough side of the city, or a place that stocks vintage pattern templates as I do like those kinds of styles! Thanks x
  9. Hi Looking at property to buy. Am considering a house on empire road..it reads 'nether edge' but it is the part between where the big posh houses stop and the empire road newsagent near wake road. I am unsure as to the area, I would probably say that is Abbeydale but I know a road can change from one end to another round there. It would be a family home and want it to be a nice safe place to live! Any opinions or experiences appreciated!
  10. If you shop around and use online places and end of line tile ranges it does not have to be £1000s..we just redid our small bathroom for under £1000 and I am very happy with it! Bathroom suite in a victoria plumb sale (£258 but not including a shower), end of line tiles from tiledirect off Queens Road (£70) and vinyl from http://www.onlinecarpets.co.uk- (£32) the same product as carpetright but half the price, they had just rebranded the original product!! We also had a plumber friend fit the suite and then my boyfriend laid the vinyl and made the boxing in for pipes and bath. It took a few weeks start to finish
  11. As above; very rude. Worst renting experience in my life...in addition to there horrible attitude throughout our lease from them, when we moved out they tried to take £240 off our bond to replace a washing machine. Bearing in mind the original washing machine which was about 20 yrs old and broken and when we rung to ask if we could have it removed to put our new one in and were told that isnt a problem as it isnt the landlords and was left 'out of courtesy' by previous tenants so to go ahead...make your own mind up but I would also strongly advise DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!
  12. I can second the above for a top quality decorator..did a feature wall with very busy wallpaper, matches up perfectly, quick tidy workman and even charged less than his original, already reasonable, quote as took less than anticipated. Will definitely use again
  13. hi we are looking to rent a scaffold tower in the next few weeks. can anyone give us a quote or reccommend anyone to get in touch with? thanks
  14. has anyone used this company based in s6? would u recommend them? thanks
  15. we are laying a patio so have dug down for the foundations and have lots of soil piled up now that we wont use!!
