    Insulating Victorian walls The insulated studs minimise cold bridging. You could do the same with normal studs but would require an overlay of PIR board.

    Dewalt mixer

    Have you gone for extra locks on the van....I have/did have 2 customs but not sport ones. One got nicked and the other got broken into....I also had an insurance company refuse to insure them as apparently they are the easiest van on the market to break into and also start. Nice vans but I...

    new system for fixing beads

    Obviously Fire them In, so one side goes through a hole in the bead and the other side overlaps the edge of the bead. I staple all beads on, on board.

    Monthly payments for work??

    No that’s now how it works. You also receive commission....for example if you sold a 6k job via finance, the finance company would pay you a commission of around £300. Plus you can up sell etc because the customer can pay on the monthly and spread the cost.

    Monthly payments for work??

    This thinking is the difference between being a businessman or being a spread.

    Monthly payments for work?? You would more than likely need a consumer credit license though.

    Sign writing

    I drive my van like I stole it so if I had it all stickered up, it would probably have the opposite effect and loose me work rather than get me it....I’ve got a little sticker of a turtle on the back door that says “I'm going as fast as I can” I normally do go as fast as I can lol

    Plastering over hot water radiator pipes

    In my house pipes have been chased in exactly the same as yours. Chased were bonded, scrim tape over the top and skimmed. Not a single one has cracked in 5 years.

    If we do then I don’t think it’ll last long....So much money has been pumped into business and furlough. I think you they call it “helicopter loan affect”. The money that’s been dished out will be spent and the government ultimately get it back through taxes, vat etc. Some businesses will thrive...

    Is your holiday scuppered

    I hassled TUI by email and by phone every day for 10 day because they weren’t playing ball. In the end they melted and refunded my holiday. Money was in account the next day.

    Tip for spot lights in ceilings.

    As a sparks I hate it when they are pulled through the board. You would have to be an idiot to think the sparks is going to cut the hole where they’ve been clipped to the joist. Just push them up and board over them and the sparks can cut them out afterwards.

    If you have a personal and separate business account then I would put it in the personal account. No more than 4K at a time as 5k and over gets flagged....(not that you’ve done anything wrong or it’s from skulduggery, but why have the agro). Then transfer the money to business account as a...
