Q: A roofing specialist is recommending a sealant for my roof. Is this the right option?

We examined this house owner’s information and photographs and recommended several suitable courses of action for the Horsham stone roof in question, specifically advising against the use of sealants which could be quite damaging.

Q: What is causing this damp patch on my wall?

We were able to provide a solution to this problem following additional correspondence and information supplied. We arrived at the conclusion that it was being caused by damp penetration as a result of defective external render and overflowing gutters.

Q: Which builder’s solution is right?

This customer was concerned that removal of an unused kitchen chimney breast on the ground floor of his property had left the one above it unsupported, and he had been getting different advice from every builder he spoke to. We were able to confirm that the less expensive options of RSJ or gallows brackets were sound in his case, while cautioning him that that a bulkhead for the supporting downstand  would probably lead to a small loss of space in the kitchen.
