    Insulating Victorian walls

    Think the previous owners have used this upstairs in the master bed when I stripped the paper it looked like orange peel. Thought it was an oil based paint like zinsser so I ran over it with a drywall sander Thinking the paint might not take properly‍♂️

    Insulating Victorian walls

    Did you do this on your own house? Or know if it’s resolved the issue? Just a little concerned moisture could form between the pir and brick wall, run down and cause damp at floor level.

    Insulating Victorian walls

    Thanks going to look into iwi. House isn’t massive but could lose 70mm either side of it helped with efficiency of the house and reduce the possibility of condensation. Just be worried about moisture between the pir and brick wall as there won’t be any ventilation.

    Tile to Wall transtion

    Can't you just put a flat (L shaped) tile trim on then board with 6mm board and skim you'll get a nice clean line between different finishes.

    Plastic trowels

    I think they have their place defo not for laying on with just a final trowel Iv found thy get rid of blebs quite well and leave the finish too shiny Iv got the foam back one tho so might be abit different without the foam.

    Tile cutter advice

    You don't need the 40 if you've got the 60 really same breaker just a bigger cutter suppose 40 is less bulky if your only cutting small tiles. Iv got a ts 60+ and that does fine with some tough porcelain tiles Iv cut recently. Tx 700 would do as well just depends on what jobs your doin. I havnt...

    Brick patch

    String line just hammer nails into mortar line thru no need for a level. Can always use a small drill bit to drill holes in mortar instead of trying to hammer nails straight in

    underfloor heating with tiles

    I like to try n use insulation boards (if the customer will pay) even on timber as it speeds up heating times even at just 6mm makes a big difference, reflects heat upwards. Used 10mm in my kitchen stuck em down and used screws with washers instead of ply used the matting but prefer the loose wire.
