Plastering pebble dash wall?

Any help would be welcome here.  I have a pebble dash wall that has had some work and is now scarred, thus making said pebble dash even less attractive to the eye, and it wasn't pretty before.  We need to move soon (baby coming! Agh!) and so we're looking for the cheapest, most effective way of maki...

Recommend a local man and van?

Hi all

I have a sofa I need picking up a whole four minute drive away and some of the van quotes I've had are crazy.
Anyone recommend someone local?

Thank you

Who fixes broken car locks?

So, my car is so old and so crap that the second lock has just broken leaving me completely unable to get into it. Any thoughts on someone to call who would come and fix this for me? I just had a Google but I seem to be finding replacement key services, whereas I need someone to break it open and re...

Re: Lower Sydenham station - safe to walk at night?

I work in town and catch a late train home most nights to Lower Syd, sometimes the last train. I walk up Kangley towards Sainsburys, and as a woman walking home by myself I can confirm that it's definitely not my favourite route in the world, but nor have I ever had any trouble. I used to be able to...

Re: Need someone to deal with damp problem

Dave.
I think you came round a few months ago (or Pat did, who posts under the same username) and had a quick look and immediately diagnosed rising damp, we've just been trying to get some second opinions since.
Thanks.

Re: Need someone to deal with damp problem

Clown lady. I love that you have your own damp meter, you sound like the kind of neighbour I need. Thanks so much for your super kind offer, much appreciated. Luckily for you I won't have to take you up on it as a man came round with a clipboard and his own damp meter. Turns out we do have damp (yup...

Re: Need someone to deal with damp problem

Hmmm. It's rising damp. I realise that's a contentious term. It's in our shared downstairs hallway, party wall with next door, and then it's coming up the wall on the stairs up to our first floor flat. The damp stain in the hall downstairs has been there a whileish but the damp following us upstairs...

Need someone to deal with damp problem

Afternoon Forum We have damp in the house, it keeps on coming. We need a shining knight but finding someone to deal with it is proving harder than expected, most people don't call back. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations for me? Do I really need to pay for a survey first? Any help would ...

Re: Where the chuff does one start with a new kitchen?

I never said thank you for all your replies. I had to take a break from looking at kitchens as my brain was starting to go a little fuzzy around the edges. I'm taking a deep breath and starting again.

Thanks for taking the time, much appreciated.
