Sorry that was a typo. It’s almost a year and a half since installation. The problems started within a year of it being installed. Just having issues with the landscapers coming out to rectify. I took up one of the boards and the issue is worse than I thought. I’ve been trying to read the standards ...

Hi, I'm after a loft ladder which can be square set to fit flush with the gyprock. All the ones I've seen so far show an architrave being used. I'm sure some of these can be used with square set gyprock edges, but none of the photos are good enough to see the finish of the corners of the hatch. Woul...

The joists have split as the screws are off center. Some of the joists have the screws 10mm from the edge of the joist. If it was just on the odd board it wouldn’t be an issue. But since it’s the entire way along the joist this is what has caused it to split. Do you know that the Australian Standard...

@MClark Thanks for the response. Please see examples. I’ve got the rubber joist protector on my other deck which has been down a few years. I had to take a few strips up to run an electric cable and it all looked like brand new underneath. No issues with water. What issues have you seen? I can’t see...

Hi Our decking which was installed about 6 months ago has issues with the joists splitting. This has caused some screws to pop up as the screws won't stay down. Nearly all the joists have split, some from where the decking screws were off center from the joists and some are centered but split. I ass...

It’s different to Boral’s hard plaster, that can only be applied to solid masonry/concrete surfaces. The multi finish can be applied to Gyprock. Looks like there are now several companies selling it over here. http://joeandsons.com.au/products/thistle-multi-finish-plaster/

Well, we did end up going ahead with the Multifinish interior plastering over the white set. Cost was approx $1600 extra. 390 sqm home with 31c & 34c ceilings. I think all up there was 750m2 of internal walls plastered. It came out really well, glad we did it. Very smooth, very strong, almost g...
Glad it worked out well for you. Out of curiosity how did you go about finding the product and someone to apply it?

Everything’s as good as new. No issues with anything, I’d 100% do it again without any worries. Buying good quality appliances is the key as they likely have a much lower chance of going wrong.

After taking another look. I like your idea of not filling the joins. Means I can do it in sections and once finished I can just silicone them.

It mostly level, has some aggregate showing in a few places. And a few small areas I can patch. The main purpose is to have a cleaner looking floor which is easy to clean and stops the moisture coming through.

Hi, just checked my calculations and realised I made a big mistake with the volume needed! Yes it’s much cheaper to hire the grinder at $1500 a day. I was planning on filling the expansion joint to make it flat. Assume if the epoxy is going to go down as thin coating after grinding I can just a thic...

Hi, I've been researching how to go about sealing and epoxy coating my garage floor and seem to be going around in circles on how exactly to do it and finding compatible products. I have a 60m2 concrete floor which is about 30 years old, it's made in 4 slabs and has areas with efflorescence due to m...

Hi, I was wondering if any of you in NSW have had a new lowered kerb and what it cost? Ours is breaking up and needs replacing, the actual cross over from boundary to lowered kerb is fine, it's just the lowered kerb part of the cross over which needs replacing and about 300m from bottom of lowered k...

Hi, We had a fantastic experience with importing our goods. The total cost of everything including taxes, custom duties, custom broker, insurance, shipping etc was almost exactly half the price. Some of our appliances have international warranties but from reading from other people on forums they ca...

Hi Steve, had a fantastic experience with the whole process and would highly recommend it if you're able to wait 4-6 weeks. Will message you directly.

Hi Stewie, thanks for the reply. I discovered the FEG system on the Lincoln Sentry website, but they couldn't be any more unhelpful. They won't give out any details of anyone or business which use the system. They can't even tell me if they have a display in any of their stores, and you can't even p...

Hmm completely forgot about the water pressure difference. I really don't want to have taps blasting out water and soaking the kitchen, perhaps it's not worth the cost saving here.

Hi Do you have or have seen the FEG wardrobe system? We really like the look of it but have some concerns about having shelves with only rear support. We're also looking at the Lema Hangar sold by Roger Seller and Presotto Varius from Eurolife. Both are excellent but the FEG system will be much chea...

Thanks for the replies, now anyone know anything about taps? Gaggenau is certainly a good high quality and reliable brand of appliances. When importing my only concern would be the warranty. What happens if one of the appliances arrives with a fault or damage? Who do you turn to if there is a proble...
