Glad it worked out well for you. Out of curiosity how did you go about finding the product and someone to apply it?

Sealing and epoxy coating moist garage floor

Looks great. Did you use any sealer?

After taking another look. I like your idea of not filling the joins. Means I can do it in sections and once finished I can just silicone them.

FEG Walk in Wardrobe System?

Hi Stewie, thanks for the reply.
I discovered the FEG system on the Lincoln Sentry website, but they couldn't be any more unhelpful. They won't give out any details of anyone…

Hmm completely forgot about the water pressure difference. I really don't want to have taps blasting out water and soaking the kitchen, perhaps it's not worth the cost saving here.

Do you have or have seen the FEG wardrobe system?
We really like the look of it but have some concerns about having shelves with only rear support.
We're also looking…

Hi,
I'm after external render bead, both corner and stop beads. However Bunnings and H&G don't sell it.
Can anyone recommend anywhere around Manly Vale/Brookvale which will sell it?
