  22. Thanks for the pictures DIYNovice, the problem makes more sense now seeing it close up.. :-) What wood are those doors made of? Hardwood by any chance? That grainy lumpy affect is often caused by painting onto sticky surfaces, where the first coat isn't dry yet, but isn't wet enough to smooth itself out if you go over it again. What I would do in this situation is remove the door, take it outside and go at it with a small palm sander and some mildly abrasive paper, like a 120 grit, then a 600 grit to smooth it off, until its 100% smooth and flat. Then wash it off with sugar soap
  23. Incompetent & Highly unprofessional. So we hired him to replace our entire garden fence as it was wrecked.. Here is how it went.. DAY 1. (Of what he said was going to take 2 days) Gets here just before 9am and he is asking me "Is your wife home, we could fucking murder a cuppa tea", this is before he has even done anything.

He gets approx half way down the garden, and the first 8 panels are pissed, not straight and the concrete

Whats the black stuff on the floor, all around that corner piece? It looks like the floor has gone black too? Also, how far apart are these 2 instances in the property? Are these pictures either side of the same wall or at opposite ends of the buildi

    Hi Gabrielle Is the existing carpet all 1 piece, in which I mean, will you have to cut the carpet to remove it? I assume the answer will be yes, as most stair carpet is done in sections of 3 to 4 steps at a time. The piece of carpet on the riser (The horizontal piece that starts step 2 should be tacked in place already, however, something like this could be installed to give it a finish and stop it from fraying:
