Cleaning after staining deck

Hi guys,
As careful as I am I still managed to get a bit of deck stain on my bricks (more noticeable on mortar). It's not a lot by any…

Hi guys,
Well the frustration has kicked in as for the 4th time in 18 months my Bonaire evap/heating system has mysteriously stopped working. Even more frustrating is this has…

Hi guys,
If I want to pour a new driveway and want it to be coloured (e.g. Gunmetal) I understand there are two options.
1. Pour regular (grey) concrete then apply…

Just had a treated pine deck installed. When should I stain and seal it?
I've heard 3 to 6 months? Is this true? Do I just leave it…

Sticking Doors

That's brilliant. Where can I find these locally? Or equivalent.

Sticking Doors

Thanks bashworth. Is it common for the top and bottom to not be sealed?

Howdy. This summer and after a few humid days the door that connects the house with the garage has been sticking. But, not at the top or bottom…

Locking aluminium sliding windows

^^^ Which lock is best though? This is what I need to know.

7 years7 yearsnikoniko posted:
Locking aluminium sliding windows

Interesting! What are these called specifically or do you have a photo or something?
Trying to explain this to someone at a store is a nightmare! :)

Locking aluminium sliding windows

Certainly makes sense Bam. The main reason why I need to do this is to run evap cooling during the night. Was after a more "secure" method.
But I…

Good thinking. The steel rod is certainly the easiest option but the patio lock is probably a better long term solution.

Interesting. Thanks for the information.
I feel like I should be compensated for such an error. Thoughts?
I'll keep you updated.

We've moved in ages ago. We're at the 3 month review period.
Not sure about the depth I'd have to check but it seems quite deep. But it's definitely…

Hi guys,
Hopefully this section is appropriate. But I have a question regarding my review period with my builder. Anyway, the short story is my driveway has a massive…

Decking - Paint vs Stain

'Ball parks' would suffice.

7 years7 yearsnikoniko posted:
Decking - Paint vs Stain

I'll give that a try, thanks.
Is using paint low maintenance? E.g. How often do I need to paint etc?

Decking - Paint vs Stain

Thanks for you reply. Although I think I still have a few unanswered questions.
The colour I'm after is more a chocolate brown or dark walnut than mission. But, why…

My fiancé and I are investigating putting in an outdoor deck which will be covered by a roof extension of the house (fully plastered, tiled etc). Meaning it will…

I understand that windows need to be opened, but what I'm saying is will it be a problem to have the window open but blinds…

Evap cooling and Holland Blinds

At night time this causes an issue as I do not want to open the blinds for people to see through, but I may want cooling on.

Driveway how long before you can use.

Typically it is 2-3 days.
Mine was done last. Be conscious of when you have your furniture and whitegoods delivered (or moved) as the driveway will of course be unusuable.

Just wondering where everyone has bought their letterbox from? I require a 'freestanding' one (i.e. no front fence) but have NO idea.

Decking

Not sure if this is the correct area, but are there any recommendations for people who can do Decking in the Geelong area?
It's for an outdoor room, moderate size.
