2015/16 recommended tradesmen MEGATHREAD no advertising/self promotion

Recommended Posts

Hello Forummers.

 

We are looking to have our kitchen entirely ripped out and replaced, potentially including an extension into our garden (depending on cost).

 

Can anyone recommend reliable builders who are prepared to come out and quote? We have phoned a couple who don't seem to want to get back to us!

I have had Lee Rogers, Handyman to my house twice now and each time responded very quickly and he did a string of jobs for me. Nothing was too difficult. I am definitely keeping his contact details safe as I would use him again. I also highly recommend him as professional, competent, friendly and fair.

Hi all, I'm looking for a tradesman to do some work on my attic bedroom insulation. I got a new roof installed and was assured that the works didn't need to be signed off by building control, turns out that was a lie and now I've got to get the insulation brought up to spec and the original contractors have scarpered. I need to find someone trustworthy with a good head on their shoulders who will be ok liaising with building control to make sure it passes first time. Any recommendations?

 

Cheers,

 

John

Hi, we're looking for quotes for the following jobs

 

 

1 look at some areas of our kitchen ceiling that has suffered water damage from the bathroom above. Unsure if it just a repair job or more.

 

2, replace laminate floor in the kitchen. Also has water damage.

 

Any recommendations please?

 

Thanks

Wow, youve got a job on your hands there.

You'll need to drop all the ceilings, fit new insulation then replaster & decorate.

Sorry you got bent over by cowboys.

Could you please say why ceilings have to come down to put insulation in - replaster etc are you trying to scare people a load of rubbish :hihi::hihi::hihi: Ceilings have nothing to do with roof

You obviously have no idea what's required to meet current building regs.

If your interested I'll give you a clue where to look. Part L.

Dont try and and blind forum users with science especially trades,

Pulling ceilings down is wrong advice it would cause unimaginable mess.

Better to scaffold and take roof off and insulate/ retile and do the job properly than start bodging, .

If you caught the cowboys and it came to a couirt case they would not be held responsible for pulling ceilings down etc, Cost more than taking roof off,

Youre quiet right i am not a roofer but have a bit off common sence .

My advice would be get inspector out see what he wants and is there any way round this mess // If he says he wants roof of so be it dont bodge :hihi::hihi: You must have some way of tracing these cowboys so do it as this is major and they must be stopped

In not blinding anyone with science I'm quoting the correct building regulation applicable.

I suppose we're both right.

The two options are -

Drop the ceilings and instal the insulation that way.

Pay for another scaffolding, remove the new slates or tiles, all lathe & felt. Insulate then re felt, lathe & slate/tile. Although that option would be more expensive.
