Replacing doors and painting architraves
I am going to replace my doors, new door, hinges and handles. I am going to re-paint the door jamb, architrave. Should I do this all before the new door is hung? Also I am…
What type of windows are these?
The frames look good where you can see the grain, the thicker paint is OK if it doesn't foul the operation of the window, otherwise, yes, sand them back, but take care…
In our next build, we will have it in the centre. See image below.
If you like it installed on the side, you can have something like this.
Hi all, hoping to get some advice on my doors. Looking to replace all the doors with something standard just in better condition. Would it be worth doing the door jamb and…

Door handle height
looks weird, no such thing as standard height, except to swimming pools.
Thank you so much for that. Will keep reading up on it all but that's been a massive help, really appreciate you taking the time to go through it in so much detail.

The point of what I am saying is that you may have a house that from the outset is non-compliant, and that could be costly in future when…
Hole left open at windows bottom
This is an easy one... all windows are type tested to meet AS2047... this covers water resistance and wind resistance. Your windows will have been tested this way, and…
